Podley Properties Welcomes Brit Patel to the Pasadena Office


A home is not simply where you live, but it defines who you are. Your home should be as distinctive as you, I am committed to helping you discover and imagine those possibilities. I have diverse knowledge in sales and investments for residential and commercial properties, benefiting buyers and sellers alike. From remodeling a timeless craftsman, to designing the indoor and outdoor look and feel that matches your unique sense of style, I bring an eye for exacting detail.

While pursued my degree in Business Management, I learned how I could use my talents of finance, management and operations to good use in a fast paced environment. With my business acumen, I have learned how to assess a property’s untapped potential that makes the difference in negotiating the right deal for both buyers and sellers.

Being a proud homeowner in Pasadena, I came to appreciate the balance between historic and contemporary urban living. My clients describe me as an insightful, knowledgeable and results-oriented professional providing value. I do this by listening, being a resource and building long-term relationships.
