Brian combines 50 + years of family history in Pacific Palisades with a lifetime of real estate experience to deliver an outstanding depth of knowledge and expert counsel to every client. His solid business proficiency includes nearly a decade of operating his own independent residential realty firm in San Diego. Now part of the #1 Team at Rodeo Realty, Maurice & Rustad, his record of thoughtful client advocacy continues.
Brian has enjoyed a varied career that extends beyond real estate – with corporate experience in telecom and several entrepreneurial ventures under his belt. While his personal journey included other ventures, the real estate business has remained a constant, whether through development, sales, or investment opportunities. The Maurice & Rustad Team provides significant leverage to Brian’s personal relationships and transaction insight by delivering direct access to a large pool of qualified buyers, connections to high profile clientele, sophisticated marketing analytics, and the resources of 100+ years of collegial ‘brain trust’ power among the key players on the Team. He is honored to continue the Team’s winning formula. One where details matter, thoughtful strategy is implemented quietly and smoothly on every transaction, and where successful client outcomes consistently follow.
Brian attended UC Santa Barbara where he earned a BA in Business Economics, followed by an MBA from UC Riverside. During his early corporate management career, he quickly advanced by moving frequently and owning homes in multiple cities throughout Northern and Southern California. Yet all the while, the Palisades has been a constant in his life. If you are lucky enough to grow up in Pacific Palisades, you’ll realize that there is no other town that compares to this amazing community that we call home.
Brian is the proud father to two sons, stays active as an avid tennis player, and is a member of the Pacific Palisades Bocce Club. He believes everyone can strive to do more good in their community and remains committed to this vision through his philanthropic-focused company, GiveBack360.
