Reid Kaplan – Broker Associate

Reid is a native of Newport News, Virginia, which is very far from the City of Angels, but he always dreamed of moving to sunny California. After graduating from University of Colorado-Boulder with a degree in Advertising and Business in 2001, he finally moved out to California and has been here ever since. In addition to helping many satisfied individuals purchase or sell their homes, in order to better serve his clients, he has continued to further his education by attaining a California Real Estate Brokers License as well as a Masters Degree in Real Estate Development from the University of Southern California.  Reid feels honored to be able to sell something everybody wants; real estate in one of the greatest cities in the world.

You really have to love what you do to have your clients goals first in your mind all the time, but that is how Reid approaches being a real estate agent.  He genuinely feels that homes sell themselves and thinks you will see that in his no-pressure approach. He merely provides advice, assistance, resources, exposure, and creative strategies to allow his clients to better accomplish their housing and financial goals with as little stress as possible.

Reid’s local expertise in many Los Angeles neighborhoods and approachable attitude will benefit you, whether you are serious about buying or selling a home now, you are a returning client, or you just want to learn more about real estate in Los Angeles.  His goal is not just to sell you a home; he wants you to be so impressed with his service that you refer all your friends and family the next time they need a Realtor®.
