Exuberance, Not Satisfaction, Is Our Goal
Whether we’re helping you buy or sell, we’ve done our jobs when you’ve made the best deal possible on your home. We’re humbled by the nice things our clients have to say, but you should really hear from them, not from us, why you should trust Maser Condo Sales.
I had a great experience working with Mike. He helped me sell a 2-bedroom condo and as a first-time seller I had lots of questions. He guided me through the whole process really smoothly and with a great attitude, including coordinating some pre-sale renovations. Highly recommended!

Brian Maser and his team went above and beyond to help my husband and I find and buy our first home. Eric Hartnack was our agent and both him and Brian made us feel that they had our best interest at heart, provided all the information we needed and then some. They were also very quick to respond, even outside business hours. It was great to have them on our side. They quickly got to know what we were looking for and always advised us on what actions to take. Since it was our first home, we had a lot of concerns and questions, but they were always quick to help. What was also very useful, is that they have so many great contacts for home improvements, that they themselves have done business with, that we ended up hiring as well. We would highly recommend Brian Maser and his time as they go above and beyond to help you find your home. They are respectful, knowledgeable, and work hard for you.
Q Dongelmans – Buyer (September 2019)
Brian made the selling of our condo effortless. In a challenging market he managed to attract and secure our asking price within days. Brian and his team are professional, diligent and courteous, and I would highly recommend them.
Neal Kingston – Seller (June 2019)
I have worked with Brian and his team for several years now starting with my placing my Marina del Rey condo up for lease, and then ultimately hiring him again to sell the condo. Brian has a great support team around him, but he is clearly the leader and takes a personal and expert interest in the progress of a transaction. He is a listener, and he provides informed responses with recommendations. I asked questions, listened to his responses, followed his recommendations and ended up with excellent results. along the way when I needed financing for my new home, I called Brian and he made a recommendation that resulted in success on that transaction as well. I could not be more pleased with Brian and his team.
Michael P. – Seller (June 2019)
Brian was hands down the best realtor we’ve ever worked with. Extremely reachable, knowledgeable and always keen to keep us informed of the process and aware of every stage. He sold our condo in record time and at a record price.
Jamie & Rebecca Hartman – Sellers (June 2019)
I recently had the pleasure of working with Brian Maser on the lease of my house in Venice and I recommend him enthusiastically! He and his team surpassed my hopes and expectations every day on every level. Brian’s professionalism, communication and knowledge of the market are outstanding, but what impressed and delighted me the most are his shrewd negotiation skills and what a great guy he is. An absolute pleasure to work with and someone you’d be lucky to have on your side!
Chaele Cooper – Lease Client (April 2019)
Homeless and hopeless! Until…….We had lost multiple properties to other buyers because we had not presented an attractive offer. We were not sure if we were not presenting a competitively priced offer or if the listing realtor did not understand how VA loans worked. One day we saw Brian’s listing. We contacted him and he was immediately very responsive. We loved the property and were afraid to lose it. Thanks to Brian’s advice on how to structure the offer, ability to negotiate, and professionalism our offer was accepted. He also provided a valuable referral of a lender that was key for us in securing the loan. Throughout the entire process, Brian was there, keeping his cool and helping us navigate through multiple roadblocks along the way! Many, many thanks to Brian and his team. They get an A+++++++.
Pilar M. – Buyer (March 2019)
I would highly recommend Brian to sell your property in the Santa Monica area. He is most familiar with the market there. He kept in touch with me on an almost daily basis. I was especially impressed with how quickly he started marketing my property. It sold within two weeks. He was most kind and competent.
Elodie Payne – Seller (March 2019)
Brian helped us coordinate with another realtor in order to buy a home in Northern CA at the same time we were selling our home in Marina del Rey. This required that he communicate with the realtor who helped us find our new home to work out timing issues and the contingency offer. He is pleasant, personable and very knowledgeable of the local area. A great person to work with in Marina del Rey.
Lara J. – Seller (March 2019)
We listed our condo with another agent and could not ever get a single offer! We cancelled our contract with her and listed with Brian Maser. We couldn’t have been happier with our decision. We received an excellent offer well above the selling price the day after Brian listed our condo. We agreed and signed the offer selling our condo within 30 days. We would recommend Brian and his associates to anyone needing to sell their condo on the westside. The Maser group is superior to any other agency in the area.
David & Diane O. – Sellers (November 2018)
Brian, his team members, and his company as a whole – all above and beyond ALL expectations. Without knowing what goes into a real estate deal, I assumed it was standard practice…as if it didn’t matter who was behind the documents. I was so wrong. Brian ensures that you can not only sign with confidence (which is not always the case), but – more importantly – that you can expect to move into your next home the exact way as you imagine. I had the pleasure of dealing with Brian as both a seller and buyer. As a seller, a different emotion comes into play (and maybe not until months after you’ve let go). Yes, we got A LOT more than asking price…but we also got an ethical deal – flawless in transaction and respectful in the hand-off. I didn’t realize it at the time, but I was passing the keys of MY home to a new family. Months after closing, Brian will still make sure the communication, if you want any, is available. Although my first real home was such a treasure to me, I can honestly say that, because of the way it was done, selling it was the right thing to do…and that the process was a success ONLY thanks to Brian and his team. A year later, I was a buyer and…WOW. Yet again, Brian went above and beyond and, a month AFTER closing, he is STILL making sure the move is going as planned. My family has fully adjusted into our new home and, as with any home, there are things you would change or update. Not only is Brian there to consult, he is also there to make it happen. It’s STILL happening! I am so incredibly grateful to Brian Maser. My heart lands in my home…it begins there…and Brian made sure it was secure. Not only do I trust him, I trust his business and all whom he employees. Brian, Mike, ALL team members – if you’re reading this, THANK YOU! Please feel free to share my contact information with anyone inquiring about your services. My best to you all.
Crystal Free – Buyer and Seller (October 2018)
Brian did the most wonderful job in securing my dream condo in Santa Monica. His professionalism, knowledge of the marketplace and superb communication skills made the entire process go very smoothly. He represented both myself and the sellers well, keeping both sides informed each step of the way. The sale closed in a timely fashion to everyone’s satisfaction. Since the close, he has made himself and his terrific team available for any follow up. It’s truly been a pleasure doing business with Brian!
Carole B. – Buyer (July 2018)
Brian did a terrific job of selling our 3 000 sq. ft. (1,000 sq. ft. of outdoor space) penthouse condo in Santa Monica. He and his associates handled everything, from marketing, photography and staging; to moving and cleaning, all with minimal effort on our part and almost no disruption of our lives. His response to requests for service or information were close to immediate, including letting workers in if we were out. The only thing that I can’t comment on is his negotiating skill, since he also found the buyer! Talk about full service!
Jeff Winant – Seller (July 2018)
Brian, Mike, and the rest of the team at Maser Condo were incredible to work with. My wife and I were just starting the process of looking and fell in love with the first place we saw. Maser Condo was able to connect us with a mortgage broker who got us pre-approved in less than 24 hours and provided additional services along the way that went well above and beyond what we were expecting.
Ryan Rifkin – Buyer (June 2018)
Brian and his team were absolutely great in my experience to sell my home / condo. Brian new exactly my marketplace, price trends, area trends. This allowed me to put my trust in his direction. Sure enough, we got multiple offers before even listing and sold on the high end of my expectations. Brian and team are extremely responsive and will always pick up or return your call right away. Brian’s team deals mostly on the Westside but he is especially successful in Santa Monica area. I have recommended Brian to several friends and I would not do this unless I was a 110 percent confident with his experience.
Peter Chao – Seller (May 2018)
I have known Brian for over 15 years and there is only one thing he is more passionate about than surfing. That’s matching potential home buyers with the ideal home. As a first-time buyer I was anxious about the process from the start and Brian took me through a seamless two months of searching and another 30 days of escrow and now I am the owner of the perfect condominium in the Marina. He has assembled a dream team (that means you Ted!) and I have already recommended him to two of my friends. Brian and his team are professional and efficient. You can’t go wrong!
Mario Meallet – Buyer (April 2018)
Brian came to me by referral from a friend who is successful in real estate investing, which was a good sign to me. I had a whole checklist in mind of everything I needed from and done by my realtor and Brian+Team easily checked every box. Selling my home was intimidating, but Brian’s confidence and constant support helped me through it. I really wasn’t expecting so much support, I am grateful.
Wendy – Seller (February 2018)
Brian and his amazing team made a huge difference in selling our condo at record price. Brian brought his design, remodeling and staging team at a VERY reasonable price. They transformed our place into a one of those TV show remodeling homes. This was at minimal cost.
Farzin Madjidi – Seller (January 2018)
It was such a pleasure working with Brian and his team. They knew the market so well, delivered on execution and timing, were super easy to work with and prepared us so well for the entire process. They helped us sell our condo ABOVE asking with very favorable terms. Overall – great experience awesome team and very knowledgeable. Would 100% recommend Brian and his team.
Drew Sapede – Seller (December 2017
We have used Brian for two sales, one a multi-unit building and one a single unit. He is an expert at pricing strategy, extremely responsive, and got us a quick sale and a record price for our single unit. We can recommend without reservation.
Sue Schroeder – Seller (September 2017)
Maser Condo Sales was exceptional throughout our recent ocean view condo purchase. They were fair and attentive to all and always “had our backs”. Brian, Ted & Sean were right there with the answers to any of our questions no matter what the time zone difference! Maser made the move from Connecticut to California effortless. Thank you to the whole Maser team!!
Portia Corbett – Buyer (August 2017)
If you would like a ringing endorsement, I would be honored to give you one. Working with you has been a real pleasure on a professional and personal level. You give your profession a good name and have made a believer and friend in me. After practicing real estate law for over 42 years and being a broker myself for 24 of those years, membership in that club is still very exclusive.
Bill Powers – Seller
Rick and I wanted to thank you again for all of your hard work and diligence on both the purchase of our wonderful house and the sale of our beach condo. Your responsiveness, attention to detail, willingness to talk through issues with us, knowledge of the market and documentation and negotiation skills were all very impressive.
We appreciate how you constantly kept us in the loop, listened to our views while also expressing your opinion, and went the extra mile to coordinate the repair work and get the deals closed for us in a timely manner. We are very happy with the results on both transactions and we know that a lot of that has to do with you!
We really enjoyed getting to know you during the process and hope that we keep in touch.
— Andrea & Rick Rifenbark – Buyers & Sellers
It all seems a blur – I interviewed Brian Maser, liked his approach, and followed his advice about upgrades and staging to make my condo “light and bright”. Next thing I knew, escrow was closing and I was moving out. Brian and his team were professional, responsive, and reassuring throughout the entire process. I couldn’t have made a better decision than to engage Maser Condo Sales.
