Real Estate Broker in the Bay Area

I am Peter Maclennan a Bay Area Real Estate Broker serving Contra Costa County, the Diablo Valley, and the greater Bay Area.

How did I become a Bay Area Real Estate Broker?

I have not always been a Bay Area real estate broker. Growing up near Ukiah, California on a 20 acre ranch was very formative. I was a part of 4-H, had regular chores, and through ranch upkeep I learned the value of hard work. The small town atmosphere I grew up in taught me the value of community and the importance of home.

While in college, I grew to love real estate and its power after reading Rich Dad Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki. Since then I have become convinced that real estate is the best tool for building wealth over time!

For most people building wealth begins with home ownership. Helping clients buy a home is a thrill and a privilege. It is also an honor to help clients sell what is likely their largest assets, their home.

Real Estate Career

I embarked on my career in real estate in 2007. I worked for a commercial real estate finance company arranging mortgages on commercial real estate from California to Florida. Throughout the great recession I helped manage a large portfolio of commercial real estate taken through foreclosure.

In 2009 I formed my own brokerage to help individuals and families buy and sell real estate. I took a leap of faith in 2011 and transitioned to working solely on my own. It has been a blessing and a challenge.

It is my passion to help homeowners, entrepreneurs, and investors, buy a home, build wealth, and create financial independence through real estate.

Personal Life

When I am not working, I am hanging out with my lovely wife and our kids. We love to enjoy all that the Bay Area has to offer us. You might find us visiting Mt. Diablo, hiking in Muir Woods, watching our kids on a soccer field or at a swim meet, or touring San Francisco.
