“Having been in the business in excess of 35 years and having gone through a slew of managers, I know how very difficult your position is. Personally, you could not pay me enough for being a manager of a real estate office, knowing all the challenges you have to encounter and resolve on a daily basis. It is rare that I need a manager, but when I do, you are always there and have done a truly wonderful job. You are well versed in real estate matters and have never been afraid to hold your own. You also do the right thing no matter who is at fault. I have encountered previous managers, mostly with (Company name deleted), that never listen and no matter what the evidence, do absolutely nothing In getting issues resolved and blatantly defend their agents. Your technological expertise is also very important to me as I have needed your assistance in that capacity numerous times. You take the time to hold classes on the I-Pad, which I need to go to. Good managers are hard to find and really good ones are even more rare. For me you are that rare manager and our company is beyond fortunate to have you. It is so difficult to manage so many different personalities and issues. You have, Lord knows how many balls in the air at the same time. Thank you for always taking my calls, days, nights and weekends and doing the best job anyone could possibly do.”
Carole Geronsin, Prudential California Realty

He is able to keep his agents on track with discipline and just plain hard work, and yet keeps them sharp with the use of innovative new ways of doing business. As the technology changes ever more rapidly, it is critical to have someone that can translate new programs into real world benefits for us as agents, and more importantly for our clients.
Old time ethics, new world technology; a winning combination in today’s challenging real estate market!!!

“I have worked for 4 different company owners & 20 different managers. Some, whom as an office, we couldn’t wait to get rid of. Some who didn’t know what they were doing and a very few who did. Brad Pearson has been one of a kind. He is personable & funny but most of all very knowledgeable, helpful and tech savvy. He always seems to have time to explain to an agent how to do something or handle a prickly situation. His office meetings are always informative and worth attending. Without a doubt Brad Pearson is one of the best managers I ever had”.
Karyn Schonherz, Broker, CDPE, CRS

“We are pleased to write a letter of recommendation/appreciation for Brad Pearson. All of us, as members of The Edie Israel Team, have good reasons to support Brad as he has been a constant supporter of our real estate business over the last 7+ years. Let me be specific as to why we would recommend him. As Realtors we are looking for answers to our real estate questions and specific answers in regards to aspects of our transactions, Brad is always an excellent and trusted source to run questions by and to get excellent answers. He is well versed in potential legal issues and has enabled us to avoid pitfalls that other agents, not under his tutelage, might fall victim to in their careers.
Trust and loyalty are two characteristics that are imperative to working relationships between management and agents. We have always known that Brad Pearson could be trusted in what he tells us and what he might recommend. He is looking for our best outcomes and provides the insights and direction needed to accomplish those goals.
When planning for the next year’s activities to generate additional business, we would call Brad into our meeting to help with strategic direction and growth tactics that would help us meet the objectives we aspire to in the coming year. He has an excellent view of the bigger picture and a broad based understanding of the real estate industry that enables us from looking to narrowly at the prospects for the upcoming year or a critical quarter to manage our business. We do not do part time real estate, we are professionals looking to run a $1,000,000 business as a business and need the expertise of a seasoned veteran like Brad to insure that we are progressing in a manner that meets our professional desires and objectives.
While all the above is important and necessary, we appreciate the times we would sit down and enjoy a relaxing time over a meal or a drink and just laugh and enjoy one another’s company. Brad has an excellent sense of humor and is very comfortable to be with in a casual setting as well as a business setting.
As a team, Edie Israel, John Israel and Jim Allen, we give Brad high marks as a leader and as a manager and as a friend.”

He provides the best motivation and takes the time out of his busy schedule to help anyone no matter how trivial or complicated the problem will be he will be there to help!”
Dave Alo, Coldwell Banker
“I like Brad Pearson as a manager because he sincerely wants to see all his agents succeed. He provides a motivational atmosphere and is extremely tech savvy. Brad will tell you flat out you need to start using a particular tool or get an Ipad, change your listing presentation etc. I really appreciate his honesty. Plus he is resourceful and I mean in seconds with answering questions or forwarding the data an agent needs. He returns calls very quickly or gives you another source within the company to provide assistance.
Good sense of humor too!”
Kathryn McCarthy, Prudential Ca Realty
“I’ve known Brad for a little over 10 years but have only been at Prudential for 4 1/2 years. I was working for a local competitor before Pru and when Brad became manager, he had asked me if I would be interested in working for Prudential. I had told Brad that I’m a very loyal person and will stay where I’m at until I’m given a reason to feel I am not being treated the same and Brad respected that 100%. Even though he was respectful of my wishes to stay at the competitior, he made it very clear that if I ever was given a reason the change, there was always a place for me in his office. Well, that time came and it came quickly one day where I was put in an an unfair position at the company I was at and forced to make a decision that put me in a bad place. In that moment of panic, Brad’s persistance paid off when I called him that day and asked for his help and he came through for me like no manager ever has. Not only did he save me that day but he has honored everything he had been saying he would do if I came on board with Pru, which is not always the case when you go to a new company. Brad is a good friend and manager and Prudential as a company has been very good to me.”
Erika Ferguson, Prudential Ca Realty
“Brad Pearson has far surpassed my expectations of a manager. He has always been supportive and certainly motivational !

Brad is always there to answer my calls, day or night, and many times he has been the voice of great reason, in what sometimes can be a very emotional situation for all involved.

Brad is an excellent manager, coach, and VP of Prudential California Realty. He’s very knowledgeable in all aspects of real estate from getting in the grind of the legal aspects (playing the dual role as a VP of the entire company and manager of an office) to having first hand experience on hitting the pavement and getting business. His experience has made him one of the best managers in Orange County/ Inland Empire and his coaching success shows in the numbers that his agents put up monthly to be the the number one Office in North Orange County in Selling the most amount of homes.
I was doing 2-3 deals a year before I met Brad. The Next 12 months I sold 12 homes, 4x the National Average. Whether you’re a new agent or a seasoned one, Brad has the ability to take your business to the next level. I wouldn’t recommend any other Manager/ Vice President to work for.

Brad is a genuine leader, motivating and inspiring. I have come a long way in 15 years under his leadership even attempting to open my own Real Estate Office at one point in my career and realizing that business is not about owning the shop but yet being profitable under strong management. I closed my office and came back to work under his leadership. Under the umbrella of a great leader and knowledgeable savvy legal entrepreneur like Brad Pearson, I know first hand this is the perfect place to be. When you consider running your own business practice as a Realtor you could only be so lucky as to have a Manager like him, that over achieves at the job of managing the team, inspiring us all to take massive action and WIN!
