With a background as a corporate executive responsible for real estate investments, wholesale and retail trade & finance, Dominic deFazio made the move in 1981 to the field he enjoyed most, becoming a real estate broker. His firm, Dominic deFazio and Associates, quickly grew to become one of the leading creative boutique realty companies in Old Pasadena, and – along with his soon-to-be wife, Hem Young de Fazio, – the business thrived.

In 1991 Dominic deFazio and Associates merged with Podley, Caughey & Doan to form a company that by mid-1998 had caught the eye of Coldwell Banker. After the CB buy-out, the deFazios remained an integral part of the company until 2014. Most recently, the deFazios have joined deasy penner podley to continue their unique marketing concept The de Fazio Experience – a new approach to real estate sales and service.

Over the years, Dominic has served as president of the 1,200-member Pasadena Foothills Association of Realtors, and sat on the Associations Board of Directors for five years, as well as on the board of the California Association of Realtors.

In 2005, Dominic successfully completed an extensive series of programs and courses in order to gain one of the most respected and relevant designations in real estate business management, that of CRB (Certified Real Estate Business Manager), becoming one of only 7,000 members worldwide.

Pasadena property owners, media representatives and fellow Realtors often seek his advice as he is known to have great knowledge of the real estate process and is extremely generous in giving of that knowledge.

Client Testimonials

“You can be sure we will recommend you to our family and friends again, as you have shown yourself to be most reliable. Your recommendations on how to stage our home for a quick sale and higher price proved invaluable. We want to say thank you for everything you did before the sale and during the escrow period.” ~ George and Naomi Egami
“We wanted to say thank you for a job well done. Your professionalism was outstanding. At every stage of the process you took the time to fully explain what was required of us and others in the transaction. We felt totally secure, knowing we were in good hands. We will remember you to our friends and colleagues.” ~ Myung-do Park
“t’s always great to know who to rely on when it comes to real estate, and it is refreshing to find professionals as honest as you were with us. We felt you priced our home correctly. And you maintained integrity through our entire time together. Thank you so much for helping us to sell our home. We have referred you to Robert’s parents, who have to sell a home they inherited.” ~ Susie and Robert Egami
“In this age of over-promise and under-delivery, you proved again to be dependable professionals. You did exactly what you said and more. I had deadlines to meet, and relocation to another part of the country. My home sold quickly, we received what you said to expect, and in the time frame I needed. It was a pleasure having you as our agents. I will definitely refer colleagues and friends to you.” ~ Robert Campany
“What can we say except thank you? Your commitment to the sale of our home at Mission Meridian Village was remarkable in a down market. You both are passionate and hard working professionals. On top of this, you sold our home for a higher price than we anticipated. My parents were right about you two. With our busy schedule, we could not have done this without your hard work and diligence.” ~ Ronaldo Vasquez, DVM
“Dear Hem-young and Dominic, Just a note to thank you for your outstanding service on selling my home. You helped so very much in many ways – measuring furniture for my new home, outstanding photos for a beautiful brochure, asking Cordelia to help, staging my home well, and taking professional care with all the sale and escrow. Also keeping a record and the photos I will need of goods sold. It was a pleasure to work with you as you were very careful with details! I am happy to tell my friends and I wish you well in your new venture (at deasy penner podley.) Wish Dominic could have joined us at the nice luncheon but I am sure he feels better by now. Looking forward to future contact.” ~ Denise Dunston
