From the moment Stuart Brawley purchased his first home in 2002, he knew he loved Real Estate. At the time, he was in the middle of a successful career as a music producer and songwriter. He remembers loving the whole process of home buying, from the search, to the negotiations, to the paperwork.
Buying and selling your home is a deeply personal experience. Having someone on your team that gets you and understands your vision makes the difference. Stuart makes sure his clients are educated in every step of the process. In addition, he loves helping families find their dream home as much as helping sellers take the next step in their lives when it’s time to move on.
Having lived 22 years in both LA and Atladena/Pasadena communities, Stuart knows the ins and outs of the community.
As a music producer, his primary job was bringing different skills, talents and ideas together to create a cohesive vision. Working with high demand clients like Michael Jackson, Don Henley, Barbra Streisand, Aerosmith, and Celine Dion gave Stuart the experience to work well under pressure, keep a project on track and deliver a great final product. He sees Real Estate through the same lens, and his mission for each transaction is to bring a team together with one goal in mind: a happy and successful escrow.
Stuart currently lives in Altadena with his partner and his daughter, who attends Pasadena Waldorf School. He remains passionate about music, building community, and volunteers regularly to work with students at his daughter’s school helping with concerts, events and outreach.

Several Podley Properties Associates from the Pasadena and Sierra Madre offices participated in the 3rd annual REALTORS® Read Across PASadena Day. Our agents worked alongside the Pasadena Unified School District and the Pasadena Educational Foundation in participating in this wonderful program. It takes place each year on Dr. Seuss’ birthday. The participating realtors picked the books to read to K-3rd graders at schools across the PUSD.
Each of our offices is working to raise $500.00. This money will be used to buy one book for each 2nd grader in the district. At the end of the school year, the books will be given out by the participating realtors. The program also provides books to the Door of Hope, a program serving homeless families in Pasadena. This drive supports the district-wide goal of every student being a fluent reader by the end of third grade.
Podley Properties is exceptionally proud to participate in Read Across PASadena Day, and to see the kids’ excitement about their new books. As Dr. Seuss’s character The Lorax says, “Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not.”
Podley Properties is proud to be the 2017 market share leader for representing both buyers and sellers in the Sierra Madre market. Our associates take pride in knowing and being a part of this wonderful community, and we look forward to continuing to provide exceptional service!

1234ElMirador.com | Offered at: $1,950,000 | Open Sat & Sun 12-3pm
This timelessly stylish house is located in the ritzy neighborhood near Pasadena’s Rose Bowl, on Linda Vista Avenue, and was designed by the Pasadena firm Marston, Van Pelt & Maybury, which designed several other houses in the area.
Built in 1918, the four-bedroom estate sits on a 13,220-square-foot lot with mature avocado trees, and it has some cool touches, both modern and vintage.
The main residence has been updated, and includes central air conditioning and heating, plus a “robust” earthquake retrofit. A hidden wet bar and two fireplaces are tucked into a nearly 1,000-square-foot basement. In a sign of the times, the garage has a Tesla recharging station and even boasts its own bathroom.
There’s also a renovated one-bedroom guest house with its own kitchen and bathroom. The property has been in the same family for more than 50 years. It’s now listed for $1.95 million.
