Barb Brawner has been a top-producing agent for the past several years. Raised in Orinda, Barb graduated from UCLA and went on to Loyola Law School earning her Juris Doctorate Degree. Prior to joining Compass, Barb served as USAA Corporate Trial Counsel and was also a Partner in a mid-size law firm in San Francisco where she handled construction defect and asbestosis cases. Barb’s trial experience positions her as a strong advocate for her buyers and sellers.
Barb has extensive personal experience in design and residential construction and has intimate knowledge of the local permitting process, making her uniquely qualified to advise clients about their real estate investments and home improvements. Barb’s involvement with her clients more often than not continues well after close of escrow, as it’s common for her to make vendor and resource referrals for everything home related.
Barb has volunteered time and donated resources to Lamorinda schools, sports teams and local foundations. With each escrow closing, she donates to Home for a Home, a San Francisco based nonprofit that builds homes for families in need.
