Penny Muck

Penny Muck brings over 15 years in real estate that began as an assistant at a boutique firm in Venice, and evolved to office management, and now, top-performing agent and residential expert. From residential and commercial sales, to leasing, Penny has worked in every aspect of the field.

Penny grew up in Mar Vista, attending Walgrove Avenue School and Mark Twain before moving to Dallas, TX for high school. Penny then embarked on a music business career that brought her back to LA to successfully promote acts like Aerosmith and Guns and Roses. Later, she would develop a niche in line producing for the feature film industry, before finally settling into real estate, where she found her passion; “It moves me to be able to help clients transition through one of the most important times in their lives,” explains Penny, who feels “Halton Pardee + Partners is a vibrant place to work, and a breath of fresh air.” As a native, Penny brings unique expertise focused in Venice, Mar Vista and the entire Westside.

We just completed the sale of our home in Marina Del Rey and hired Halton Pardee and Partners to handle the transaction. We couldn't have made a better…choice! Penny Muck and Tami Pardee came to our home and made a presentation on how they would market our property. They were prepared, professional, and diligent in their research. All of our questions were answered. As we went through the sale, their support staff (particularly Kate) were always available to explain or walk us through the process. Halton Pardee brought us offers for above asking price. The escrow closed in 30 days. This team goes above and beyond to make the process simple and understandable. We would highly recommend them!

Penny Muck and Kate Brickley helped us sell our house in Mar Vista in record time. Their experience and knowledge of the market made a very complicated process…seem very easy. Any time we had any questions they were responsive almost immediately. They are both extremely dedicated and clearly very passionate about what they do. During the negotiation process, they fought hard to help us get us a good price. You can’t ask for much more.
We are very happy with Halton Pardee and highly recommend them!

After reviewing online comments, we've decided to work with Pardee to sell our townhouse. Few days after Penny walked to our townhouse, she gave a timeline of…the whole selling process. Penny and her team worked dazzlingly fast. We had multiple offers above the asking price on the first week of the open house. Selling a property was like charting a new territory for us, so we had some questions along the way. Each time we sent an email with a question, Penny or her team called us back within 5 minutes and simply put us at ease. Thank you Penny for making the whole process so seamless.

Halton Pardee has just wrapped up the sale of a rental property in Venice for me, and the experience was absolutely top-notch in every way, from start to…finish. I live way across town from this place and simply did not have time to be on-site, but Penny's expert and continuous engagement made that unnecessary. Her advice regarding upgrades was spot-on, a perfect fit for my budget, and she managed all of the demo, landscaping, and construction so that we made drama-free progress even while I was out of town for multiple weeks. Meanwhile she had already begun socializing the property so well that we had an over-list-price offer (for an extremely short escrow) as soon as the upgrades were done, even before the staging was completed. Everything was handled quickly, creatively, professionally, in the easiest possible way for me, even when we had to deal with an unexpected gas service glitch in the middle of escrow. If I had to do it all over again I would engage Halton Pardee again in a heartbeat.

An update: a couple of months later Halton Pardee helped me buy another property, and once again the experience was everything I could hope for. Jeremy clearly understood the market, was amply aware of all the options, and tirelessly worked to make the transaction as painless for me as possible. I would have no reservations about recommending Halton Pardee to anybody.

Our experience in selling our home here in Los Angeles with Halton Pardee could not have been bettered. Penny Muck and Kate Brickley were on top of…all of the details and found a buyer for us even before the house went onto the open market. The entire process went like a dream and entirely to schedule. We are truly impressed by the professionalism of the Halton Pardee and no other realtor could have matched their degree of involvement in handling both the seller and the buyers. We could recommend Penny Muck and the Pardee team to anyone who wants to sell their property in Los Angeles. It does not seem possible, but the process of selling our house was an entirely stress-free experience, even the escrow office was a local one which eased the escrow paperwork and signing.

My wife and I simply love working with Pardee – specifically Penny Muck as our selling agent. We recently completed the sale of our very unique Santa Monica…art gallery-inspired home, and are extremely pleased with the results.

Penny was absolutely instrumental in every aspect of the sale process. We decided to put the house on the market in early-December, but had a planned 6 month sabbatical starting almost immediately with the holidays. Penny worked with me in the weeks leading up to our departure to organize a slew of contractors to accomplish the necessary polish for the sale. She had great ideas and connected us with some of the people who came and performed the work. It was startlingly easy for us, but must have been a real chore for her. She also spent a huge amount of her time once we had departed supervising the work done on significant projects like interior repainting, roof repairs, resurfacing the floors, staging of furniture, working with our movers and storage location, deck construction and gardening. She was professional, friendly, available, brilliant and truly made the process work through her diligence, communication and work ethic.

I like that Pardee structures their organization to allow agents to solely work on selling (other agents represent buyers). This seemed to really keep Penny focused and highly informed on the status of the market – all to our advantage. Pardee also went all out on the marketing front... everything from beautiful photography to print media to a strong online push (including video).

Because of the unique nature of our house it did remain on the market for a few months, however the level of effort by Penny and her team never lagged. We always felt informed and comfortable that everything possible was being done. After about 3 months we had a meeting with Pardee senior staff and Penny to discuss the fact that it hadn't sold. The outcome was a full re-marketing of the house with a slightly different pitch. This included new photography, print media, re-staging of the house and a gallery-style art party – thrown by Penny and Pardee while my wife and I were traveling. It was extravagantly marketed and catered at their expense. It was truly far beyond the norm for a real estate agency to do something like that.

I'm sure the other reviews mention it, but after escrow had closed we received surprise gifts... His and hers Linus bikes, a Timbuk2 messenger bag and a book to remember the old house. We were blown away.

We can't thank Penny enough – it truly was a complicated sale, and I don't think anyone else could have done it. Infinite thanks to Penny and Halton Pardee!

I had contacted a few agents at various companies to sell our house. Penny Muck acted immediately, took the bull by the horns. By the end of…the day she had already viewed property and given me a proposed value and sales price. She is very knowledgable and extremely efficient. this was a divorce situation, and Penny sold our house QUICK and as painless as possible. I highly recommend her. Her assistant Kate is professional and competent as well. A great experience.

We have great appreciation for Penny Muck and the Halton Pardee team, who recently guided us in the sale of a family home in Mar Vista. Tami…Pardee’s organization was right on target in helping us get the property ready for showing, bringing in a large number of offers, negotiating for the price we wanted, and closing escrow in only 17 days.

Penny, in particular, went above and beyond with her flexibility, keeping us in the decision loop on a daily basis during offers and counters, and making sure that everything stayed on track through escrow. Always with a smile, Penny was a delight to work with, and has earned our highest recommendation!

I had a wonderful experience with Penny and John who helped me list my property in Venice to lease. They were fun and easy to work with…and totally on top of their game. From advising me on how the house needed to be prepped, to suggesting people to make repairs, writing the listing, photographing the property, contract negotiations -- I couldn't have felt more taken care of in the whole process!

Penny went above and beyond in helping sell our property. The house was in a trust and Penny worked tirelessly with my reluctant stepfather. Her assistant, Maria brought…me papers since I'm disabled and helped in every way possible. I'm not sure I could have sold this house without their patience and help. If I could give Pardee Properties more than five stars, I would. Penny and Maria, thank you for all of your help. You've both been wonderful.

We could not have been happier with the outcome of the sale of our home. The Pardee team really knew the market and presented and marketed our house…superbly. Penny, our wonderful agent calmly guided us through simultaneous escrows. We have already recommended Halton Pardee to our neighbors.

Pardee Properties is the best there is, Tami & her team made the process of selling our home of 30 years a breeze. Penny Muck just did it…all, she guided us through everything, never missing any detail. This team has deep experience, resources & creativity to put the deal together. Tami & Penny are so gifted we couldn't be happier & are so grateful to have found them. Having bought & sold 4 other properties with other real estate agents this was, hands down, the best experience for us. We would only turn to them for our next venture.
