“The great thing about this business is that it builds relationships with new friends and old friends alike. I may have retired from professional sports, but the drive to be my best will never go away - at home, in this community and for my clients. Buying or selling a home in the Beach Cities can be an intimidating experience. My goal is to ensure that it is also the best experience it could possibly be.” - Brook Billings

SOLD | 9th Street - Hermosa Beach
This spacious 4 bedroom + 4 bathroom home in Hermosa Beach is South Bay living at its finest. With peek-a-boo ocean views from all main living quarters, and an unobstructed view from the rooftop, this beautifully renovated home was a dream come true for our buyer.
SOLD | McKinley Ave - Venice Beach
This was an exciting home to work with. We didn't need to do much in the matter of design on this home as the owner had meticulous taste. The kitchen needed added storage so the owner custom built a hand crafted island with storage below as well as custom floating cabinets in the dining room. We sold this Venice Beach property after ONE day on the market, for full price - and a record number for the silver triangle.
SOLD | Dawn Street - Lomita
This gorgeous family home in Lomita sold with multiple offers at $20K over asking price…in the first weekend on the market - at the time, a record number for the neighborhood. We worked closely with the sellers to provide guidance on upgrades and staging, which made an incredible impact on the path to sale.
“Brook is the most present and engaged realtor you can find in the South Bay (and beyond). He helped to sell our house after ONE day on the market for full price - and a record number for the silver triangle.”

SOLD | Garford St. - Long Beach
Located on one of the busiest streets in Long Beach, this home provided a handful of hurdles. The home was painted by the previous owners in a "Caribbean" color scheme of bright green with purple trim. With consistent marketing, a relentless open house regime and great team work, we were able to represent the perfect buyer for this home as well as make our sellers happy.
SOLD | 16th Street - Hermosa Beach
This buyer client wanted views, location, views and location. This 1920s vintage two story beach home offers unobstructed ocean views from every level, making true California beach living a reality. We were well armed and ready to write when this property came back on the market. With the idea of a custom remodel in mind to maximize the potential this corner lot offers, we are excited to see what the future holds for this property.
SOLD | Cherry Street - Los Alamitos
Our clients had just sold their home in Michigan and decided to move back to the best coast: the West Coast. With two grade school-aged tweens, a good school district was critical. We spent countless hours viewing homes up and down Southern California, from Redondo Beach to Los Alamitos. Eventually they had their heart set on the wonderful Rossmoor Highlands community. After seeing every model and home in the track we ventured across the street and landed in this exquisitely remodeled 4 bedroom masterpiece with enough space for everyone.
SOLD: Los Santos Drive - Long Beach
We had to move quick on this charming 3 bedroom + 2 bathroom ranch-style home in Long Beach as the sellers found a replacement home before putting this one on the market. We had multiple offers come in before the close of the weekend, ultimately closing over asking price in cash.
SOLD: Oceanspray Lane - Huntington
In a dual transaction, our Huntington Beach sellers decided to sell and buy together in order to move forward. We were able to find them a new home that was purchased for asking price before we even had their Oceanspray home on the market. With several successful open houses, great team work and communication, we were able to make it all happen seamlessly.
SOLD: Lucia Ave. - Redondo Beach
The buyers of this beautifully remodeled, freestanding townhome beat out multiple offers and closed on their new home with a nice, smooth transaction. With two little girls moving into kindergarten and elementary school, the South Bay - with its outstanding public school options - was a perfect fit for their new home.
SOLD: 12th Street - Manhattan Beach
Co-listed with Caskey and Caskey, this was a very rare opportunity for the right investor to own side by side lots with 4 units on each property. We provided guidance on renovations and landscaping in the pre-sale phase, and ultimately sold both complexes completely off market for asking price.
SOLD: Donora Ave. - Torrance
They say things happen for a reason, and real estate is no exception. After missing out on several other properties, our buyers landed in their dream home and were able to negotiate the price down as well as receive $15K in credit for repairs. They were well prepared and ready to close quickly which gave them a leg up against all other offers.
SOLD: Doheny Drive - Beverly Hills
For this first time home buyer, we were able to find an incredible, designer’s dream starter home in Beverly Hills for under $800K. We introduced the client to a trusted lender, who helped guide him through a successful and stress-free transaction.
