Raised in Southern California, I'm a California girl at heart! I love everything about California, especially living along the coast in Pacific Palisades where I've been for almost 20 years. I grew up in San Marino and graduated from UC Berkeley, studying Business & Psychology. Upon graduation, I returned to my beloved Southern California and worked in Commercial Real Estate for nearly 1O years before starting a family with my husband, Phil, who was raised in Pacific Palisades.
My commercial real estate experience endowed me with extensive knowledge in contract negotiations and how to successfully navigate a tricky deal. It allowed me to develop a keen ability to communicate effectively and negotiate successfully. I place a key emphasis on relationships with brokers and others in the business. Now that I have fully transitioned to residential brokerage, these skills and perspectives are critical to my clients' success in their transactions. I believe in dealing with people fairly and honestly. I have a passion for exceeding my clients' expectations and want to make sure they are far more than just satisfied! Service is paramount to me.
When I take on a project, I jump in with both feet and do whatever it takes to accomplish it. While I strive for success, I want the deal to be a pleasant experience for all involved. I realize that buying or selling a home can be a complex and often scary endeavor, and I want to alleviate my clients' trepidations. One of the unique benefits to my clients, is my ability to scour high and low for that "perfect" property. When it is found, and the client says, "This is it, we've found home!" I'm thrilled!
I love spending time with my family at the beach, cooking and playing sports. My favorite sports to play are beach volleyball and paddle tennis. Phil and I are very committed to youth sports. Whether it is volleyball, soccer, or flag football, our involvement and commitment in these communities runs deep. I have always been very involved with our children’s schools and volunteer to help as much as possible. I love the Palisades and am happy to call this town our home!
“Briar is a rarity in the real estate world. Her combined talents of tenacity, detail, good humor and discretion put her in a league of few. Briar listens closely to the clients needs and executes with urgency, detail and grace. She’s a pleasure to work with. Her ability to anticipate questions or issues and get answers and info - having all “your ducks in a row” - makes her your best asset in any real estate transaction. You couldn’t ask for a better agent and trusted partner.”
“Briar listed a beautiful home which we purchased in Pacific Palisades. She is extremely well organized, professional, forthright and a pleasure to work with. There was a short 2-week escrow period that required her undivided attention and excellent abilities. My experience with Briar has been nothing short of a positive one in every manner. She is both professional and takes a real personal interest in every aspect of her dealings with us. She is a very genuine individual who gets the job done.”
“Briar Pecsok is the perfect combination of everything you want in a real estate broker. She is intelligent and confident while at the same time shows compassion and warmth. I would highly recommend her.”
“We interviewed several agents looking for the right combination of passion and local knowledge. We struck gold in Briar, a longtime resident of Pacific Palisades and a great person with tireless energy and commitment to finding us a home. It seemed as though she worked 24/7, picking up the phone and/or immediately responding no matter when we called. She is very positive and solution-oriented, often going over-and-above to find solutions to any challenge we faced.”

“Briar assisted us with the preparation, staging and sale of my parent’s home in the Palisades. We spent considerable time assessing the market and developing a positioning and pricing strategy. After considerable upgrades and professional staging, Briar ran a concise and competitive process which yielded both a sale at a premium price and a happy buyer. We would happily and wholeheartedly recommend her. She was professional and a pleasure to work with.”
“Briar helped us find a terrific home. We were looking for something very specific and she helped us find it quickly. She is an exceptional agent, a great business woman and a delightful person to work with. We would definitely ask Briar to represent us again.”
