deasypennerpodley is excited to announce Carrie Bryden as a new agent to our Pasadena family.
Carrie developed her appreciation for architecture and design growing up amid the Victorian Gothic edifices of Louisville, Kentucky. The connection of architecture to the arts was established early in her life as these historic neighborhoods regularly hosted fine artists exhibiting their work and musicians performing locally. Carrie herself was born into a family of musicians. She moved to Los Angeles in 1997 to continue her career as a vocalist, enjoying success touring with Maverick recording artists The Rentals.
She traded touring the world for touring homes when she obtained her real estate license in 2002, after the birth of her first child. While living in Los Feliz, Carrie felt her love for the Gothic Victorians of her hometown growing to accommodate the classic California Craftsman bungalows, Mission Revival structures and midcentury modern homes of Los Angeles. Here, too, she was drawn to the neighborhoods inhabited by artists and the architectural styles they elect for their homes and studios.
As a REALTOR®, Carrie has earned a reputation for taking a creative approach to her own work, one that effectively complements the skills she’s amassed during 17+ years in the field. She is also known for gently guiding her clients, maintaining a patient and thoughtful demeanor no matter the circumstances, while remaining a fierce advocate for their interests. Whether you are pursuing a purchase or selling your largest asset, Carrie is happy to hold your hand.
A commitment to kindness and caring is likewise present in Carrie’s sense of responsibility towards her community. She participates in the common good by, among other contributions, supporting homeless women and children in the Los Angeles area through the Downtown Women’s Center and Five Acres.
