One of Downtown L.A.’s top-producing agents and foremost neighborhood experts, Kerry Marsico’s knowledge of the city and its real estate is second to none. Joining The Agency from Coldwell Banker, where he ranked among the top .5% of 47,000 agents nationwide, Kerry brings a reputation for his impeccable negotiating skills, personable nature and forward-thinking approach to The Agency.
A true pioneer of the Downtown market, Kerry attributes much of his success to his extensive knowledge of L.A.’s rich history and architecture, as well as his relationships with developers, city planners, and architects. Formerly a professional drummer, Kerry started his career in sales, marketing and promotion in the music industry. Over the course of more than a decade, he honed his marketing, advertising, negotiating and deal-making skills, eventually rising to the rank of Director of West Coast Promotion for several labels including TVT Records (Pitbull, Nine Inch Nails), MCA/Radioactive (Live, The Ramones), IRS Records (REM, Concrete Blonde), and Moonshine Music.
During his run in the music industry, Kerry purchased a home and several investment properties in California and Hawaii and soon discovered his passion for real estate. After the rise in popularity of file-sharing technology in 2008 and the resulting toll it took on the music industry, he found himself compelled to pursue real estate full-time.
After establishing a strong client base in Pacific Palisades, Silver Lake, Sherman Oaks, and Long Beach, Kerry turned his attention to Downtown, recognizing the tremendous potential of the burgeoning community during a time when most agents were skeptical of the area. Within months, Kerry launched TheDowntownMLS.com, which quickly became the top destination for homebuyers seeking lofts and condos in the greater Los Angeles area, receiving 2.6 million hits annually by 2011 and helping to establish him as an area expert.
Since then, Kerry has won numerous industry accolades and distinctions, including ranking #1 in sales volume among agents in Downtown Los Angeles since 2015. He has also been recognized among the top 1% of producers globally with Coldwell Banker, joining the ranks of the brokerage’s prestigious International President’s Elite Society.
Originally from Chicago, Kerry holds a BA in Studio Music/Jazz Performance from the University of Miami. When he’s not serving his clients in real estate, you can find him riding his Ducati through Angeles Crest or running in Griffith Park with his dog. He often devotes his time to teaching drum lessons as a volunteer with Hearts of Los Angeles, a non-profit that aims to inspire and empower the city’s underprivileged youth.
