Brent ConsdineEven as a boy, Brent Consedine had a passion for real estate. He felt deep down that he would work in the industry one day, and he was right. He not only has achieved his goal, but he also ignites his love of great homes and helping people find them in the agents he supervises as broker/manager of the Central San Diego, Mission Hills and Scripps Ranch offices of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices California Properties.

After graduating with a bachelor’s degree in marketing and public relations from California State University, Fullerton, Brent went to work in the life-sciences industry, helping find suitable donors with rare blood types. “Recruiting has always been a major component of my career, and that certainly helps in my current position,” he said.

He earned a California real estate license in 1996 and made the permanent career switch in 2004. His instincts proved correct as he worked his way up to managing his offices’ approximately 100 agents. Offering them exceptional training and support is his personal passion.
