A FOCUS ON SERVICE…
Barry Gray is a Founding and Senior Partner at Deasy Penner & Partners, a real estate brokerage specializing in the marketing and sale of residential architecture, historic properties, and design-centric homes.
He has represented both buyers & sellers of architecture and historic homes designed by early twentieth century icons Arthur & Nina Zwebell, mid-century masters Richard Neutra, John Lautner & Raphael Soriano, classic Southern California architects Richard Dorman, Ed Fickett, Donald Wexler & Gregory Ain, and numerous contemporary architects currently working in Southern California. Barry has sold property from the Westside of Los Angeles to the Hollywood Hills, Los Feliz & Silver Lake, Pasadena, and even Palm Springs.
While his passion for residential architecture launched his career, it’s his passion for service that has sustained it. Barry is certified as a Seniors and Negotiation Specialist, has managed complicated trust sales, and enjoys more than anything the opportunity to guide clients through a process that can be emotional and confusing. And his focus on service has turned out to be good business: in Sliver Lake, for example, he has negotiated some of the highest ever dollar-per-square-foot sales for both a single-family home and a condo.
Barry transitioned into real estate from the film business, where he was involved in independent film finance, distribution, and marketing. While traveling extensively around the world to attend film markets and festivals he discovered his interest in architecture. Barry attended Roanoke College and U.S.C.’s Annenberg School of Communications and is a graduate of the University of Texas at Austin.
