Justin Sawai has experience in renovating, remodeling and re-selling residential properties to increase their appeal and market value. His many business skills include market analysis and commercial development. However, for Justin, real estate service goes beyond the transaction , it's about the relationships that he builds in the process.
He finds residential real estate especially rewarding and is gratified by helping people find their dream homes as well as starter properties that can help them achieve their goals. "Residential real estate is personal. There are so many decisions that an individual must make about the community, school system and whether a neighborhood fits a person's interests, needs, and lifestyle," Justin says. "It's my role to guide them through the process, listening to their needs and ensuring complete satisfaction."
A life-long resident of Pacific Palisades, Justin became interested in real estate at an early age. He grew up with a Realtor father, while his mother worked on the design side of the business. His work experience includes positions with CBRE, Caruso Affiliated and Holtz Construction. With a background in urban studies, he has a unique understanding of the Southern California market and the aesthetics of neighborhoods. "From a 1920s bungalow to a modern mansion, they all have character and an emotional component for different people to connect with," he adds.
A graduate of Loyola Marymount University with a bachelor's degree in urban studies, Justin is the product of local schools, including Paul Revere and Palisades High. When he's not working, he enjoys the outdoors including surfing, diving, mountain climbing, running, and biking. Also a "foodie," Justin loves to explore the diverse restaurants, neighborhoods, and cultures of Los Angeles.
