L OCAL D EPTH
Every city and neighborhood in Southern California is unique. Unlike the national brokerages, deasypennerpodley understands that Pasadena and Glendora are not the same as Venice, and Downtown is not West Hollywood. With our ownership and our headquarters based in the Southland, we understand both the differences and distinctions within each community, as well as how to celebrate their subtleties. As micro-area specialists, all deasypennerpodley partner-agents have an intimate knowledge and complete understanding within the neighborhoods they represent. This is critical when determining the appropriate strategies for the purchase of a particular property on the market, or sourcing the perfect home that has not yet been placed actively for sale on the multiple listing service. Both deasypennerpodley, as a corporation, as well as all of the individual partner-agents are continually involved with local philanthropic endeavors. Being personally and financially invested in local charities, schools, religious and other non-profit organizations, not only makes for a better community â€“ it keeps deasypennerpodley entrenched within the region.
Our clients are neighbors. Our agents are family.
