Growing up in Encinitas, Brent attended high school at San Dieguito where he was a second generation graduate. After high school, Brent attended Mira Costa College & UC San Diego while majoring in Political Science. During his time in college, Brent played baseball as well. After earning All-American honors in his senior season at UCSD, he was selected in the major league draft by the Boston Red Sox. For the next seven years, Brent pursued his life long dream of playing professional baseball (including one year in Taiwan).

It was while attending college that Brent met his wife Christina, a graduate of Carlsbad High School. After their marriage, Christina & Brent decided to settle in her home town of Carlsbad where they still reside. With a passion for family, Brent can often be seen playing with his children, Kyle & Chloe at the beach, park and sports fields around Carlsbad. Although he retired from baseball years ago, he still enjoys being around the game. He has coached a number of his son’s sports teams through the years & most recently, spent two years as the varsity baseball pitching coach for Carlsbad High School.

Brent comes to Shafran Realty Group as one of the true area experts. A native of North San Diego, his unique insight on the area & neighborhoods has been invaluable to hundreds of past clients. Coupled with a strong competitive drive that helped him throughout his professional sports career, Brent brings an enthusiasm to the business that has translated into a tremendous real estate career. Since joining The Alan Shafran Group in 2000, Brent has consistently been one of the top producing agents on the team but also throughout North County, San Diego.

Seeing North County evolve first hand since the 1970’s has given Brent an understanding for the area that is difficult to match. Having several opportunities to live & raise his family in other parts of the country, Brent has always returned. His love of the area & all it has to offer is apparent: “I’ve had the chance to live in so many places & been tempted a few times. However, every time I return to San Diego, it reminds my why I don’t want to live anywhere else…there’s just no other place like it!”
