Top Santa Monica real estate agents

Santa Monica, CA has 1.6x real estate agents, so how do you know who’s right for you? HomeLight looks at each agent’s historical performance data to identify those that will get you the best results. Santa Monica’s top 3% of agents do 423 real estate transactions per year. Compare that to the average agent who does transactions a year — the top agent completes 78.1% more transactions! And that level of experience pays off for buyers and sellers alike.

About Marc J.

Marc J. Robinson has been selling real estate in Los Angeles since 2003. For the first ten years of his career, Marc won numerous awards at Coldwell Banker’s flagship office in Beverly Hills. Then in 2013 he teamed up with the luxury specialists at Keller Williams Beverly Hills, where he continues to set the bar for excellence. What Marc brings to the table is special: First, he’s one of less than 40,000 agents across the country who has earned the CNE® (Certified Negotiation Expert) from The Real Estate Negotiation Institute; the leading negotiation training company in the real estate industry. This gives Marc’s clients an enormous advantage -- whether buying OR selling -- when so much is on the line. Second, Marc is a KW Global Property Specialist and Certified International Property Specialist (CIPS) with a network of over 600,000 agents in over 100 different countries.

Third, Marc has an unparalleled in-depth knowledge of Los Angeles. Being a native and having lived almost everywhere -- from the beach to the Hollywood sign and everywhere in between -- Marc has had the unusual opportunity of experiencing all the pros and cons that each community has to offer; qualifying him to work with buyers and sellers from all over town. Fourth, Marc has an extensive background in the arts. He earned a B.A. in Architecture from UC Berkeley and worked for 10 years as an Art Director in the entertainment industry designing sets for motion pictures, commercials and music videos. This background in architecture and set design not only benefits his sellers when getting their homes staged and properly marketed for sale, but it also helps his buyers envision a space they perhaps wouldn’t have otherwise seen.
