Maggie Kennedy’s business philosophy is distinguished by her thoroughness, charisma, and innate penchant for service. Focusing on Santa Monica and the greater West Side, a community she is happy to call home, Maggie values, above all else, her personal ties to her community and clients. Having been with the company for nearly five years, Maggie is not only an instrumental part of Pacific Union LA’s continued growth and success but also a member of Elevated LA, a select group of real estate professionals committed to going above and beyond to advance their clients’ long-term commercial and residential investments.
“In some ways, I consider myself more of a lifestyle consultant. I love helping people find a space that’s perfect for their needs. There’s something so rewarding in that.”
Maggie’s taste for real estate was awakened by navigating the process of purchasing a home for herself. The experience awoke her entrepreneurial spirit and, by 2013, she had found her calling as a real estate professional, an ideal fit that combined her passion for architecture, analytical perspective, and client-focused work. Soon after, Maggie took on her first commercial real estate project in which she sold, within a month, a $3.7 million property that had been listed for two years. With experience in all facets of the business, including retail, office, multifamily, and industrial enterprises, Maggie continues to gravitate toward the “people aspect” of her position, especially helping her clients make smart financial decisions.
Raised in Washington, D.C., and having traveled widely and lived in several states, Maggie can honestly say that West Los Angeles is one of the best places on the planet. From alluring beaches and amazing hiking to unbeatable weather and world-class entertainment, the city has everything she needs. When she’s not advising one of her clients, you’ll most likely find Maggie engaged in something new, indulging her curiosity and taste for adventure.
If you're looking for a real estate agent, look no further! Maggie recently helped my boyfriend and I purchase our first home. She has qualities that I never even thought to look for in a real estate agent - she is exceptionally thorough, not pushy at all, and really, really reliable. On top of that she is a professional that really cares about the well being of her clients.
I work a lot and only had time to check out houses on Sundays. It was great to have Maggie in my corner because, once I sent an email listing the houses I was interested in, she hustled to get all of the appointments scheduled for Sundays and sent me a google map with all of our appointments for the day. I didn't have to think about it - she took care of everything.
We had some drama with our purchase: foundation issues, non-responsive escrow company, frustrating mortgage broker, but through it all Maggie and her colleague at Partners Trust Tim, dealt with it with complete professionalism. They were great advocates and explained the whole process to us when others didn't. They truly made the deal happen.
I don't make recommendations often. Maggie is fantastic! You won't regret working with her.

I have actually never written a review on Yelp before but I felt so inclined to do so because of how great Maggie was from start to finish. I have moved over 20 times in my life and have never had an agent come close to the service she provides.
I was sent thorough details of all potential locations that fit my exact requirements. From there, we met and went through each property highlighting the positives and negatives of each and what I should expect during our visit. When we met each landlord Maggie was very upfront on what was important to me and if something was lacking we tried to find a way to improve.
When it came time to negotiate she was able to move mountains to get the perfect deal for myself and my business. We were told multiple times that the landlord would not budge on certain deal points but when it came time to sign the lease Maggie somehow made it happen.
I cannot say enough about how pleased we were, but just know that you will get the same service if you choose Maggie as your real estate agent.

Maggie was a tremendous help; very competent. She helped me secure a great property on a tight timeline. Excellent communication and a thorough grasp of the transactional details.

I'm not one to pass our recommendations easily, but Maggie recently helped my family relocate to the Los Angeles area, and I can't recommend her enough. We had to move quickly and didn't have time to scout neighborhoods, or even visit the properties before making a decision. Maggie gave us detailed reports on neighborhoods in a language we could understand, ran all over the greater L.A. area to look at properties, and sent detailed videos on all our target properties. We ended up thrilled with our neighborhood and property even though my family had never set foot in the area or house. It's a true testament to her many skills.
There are many people have knowledge, skills, and understanding of the market, but in addition to those requisite skills Maggie has a sincere dedication to her customers that sets her above the competition. It's very rare to find someone with all those traits in any field, and if you are in the realty market in L.A. I highly recommend connecting with Maggie.

Maggie helped me find a great property in Marina Del Rey, and has helped several friends with their residential or commercial real estate acquisitions.
She is absolutely the best at what she does. She is thorough, dedicated, very responsive, and driven. She also helped me a great deal with my renovation, and has great contacts for architecture and subcontractors. I cannot recommend her enough.

I am a commercial real estate broker by profession and a real estate attorney by training, and as such I'm a very picky buyer when it comes to brokerage. I'm sure I wasn't the easiest client for Maggie. We used her to identify and negotiate our family's residence, and I can't recommend her highly enough. She is responsive, clear in her communication, presentable, easy to get along with, able to receive feedback, and most importantly IS A HUSTLER (which is a trait I've too often found to be lacking in residential agents). I endorse her without hesitation.

My business partner and I work for a rapidly growing software start-up in Santa Monica. We had started in a tiny corporate office, but quickly added a few employees and needed a space with room for growth. We tried ourselves for a week and it was an utter disaster. We had basically lost hope that we could find the type of space we were looking for in Santa Monica, within our budget.
We decided to reach out to Maggie and Partners Trust. From the minute I called Maggie was on it and promised she would deliver exactly the place we were looking for. A few days later Maggie took us to look at an office and it was everything we hoped for and more! Also, well within our budget. Couldn't have been more pleased with Maggie's dedication and without her and the team we would still be in a predicament. And now we are in a beautiful new office with a lot of room to grow. Doesn't matter if you are looking for commercial or residential -- Maggie is your women!

When you're looking for a place to live you need a Realtor to do the heavy lifting and help you find what you need. Most of the time we spend hours in the car with someone we can barely stomach just because they're a means to an end.
When my wife and I first met Maggie we both knew right away she was more than a means to an end. She was someone who was kind, hard working & shared in our dream of finding a home. It didn't take Maggie long to understand what we were looking for, there was no wasted time on places that clearly weren't for us... She knew what we wanted and delivered on it.
She found us our dream home, 3 bedrooms, hardwood floors, newly remodeled, our friends are going to be jealous master piece! Even after we found our new home she continued to follow up to make sure there were no outstanding issues. Talk about service with a smile, that's what you get when you work with Maggie Kennedy!
The only thing we could possible complain about is the fact that we don't get to spend time with her on a weekly basis like before. We would recommend her to anyone looking to make their home buying experience a pleasant one.

My husband and I came across Tim & Maggie just in time! We had spent the previous year in the market for our first home, and had become pretty discouraged. We worked with other agents, but had yet to find anyone as analytical, honest, professional, and as thorough as them. Besides trying to find our perfect first home, they were equally concerned with it since it was also our biggest financial investment. During this process, they became friends who were there for us 24-7, and there was never a question left unanswered. Our perfect house finally came onto the market and they go us in there in no time. Not only do we leave this experience with more than we need in a home, but also with friends, and agents, who we would recommend to anyone looking to have the picture-perfect homebuying experience. Thanks for everything!
