deasypennerpodley is excited to announce David Guthrie as a new agent to our Pasadena family.
Growing up, David always thought all houses were the same until one day, he visited a family friend who lived in a “new” house built in the 60s. It seemed like a regular home on the outside except for its flat roof. But on the inside it was completely different than any home he had ever been inside. It was private yet filled light. It was during his senior year at an Arts Magnet high school, that David took an environmental design course that introduced him to the work of Arata Isozaki and he fell in love with the home Frank Gehry built as his residence in Santa Monica. Since then, David has had an interest in Mid-Century modern post and beam architecture, while Desconstuctionism and Brutalism speak to him as well
David attended school at Art Center and Academy of Arts before dropping out to pursue his passion for Tattooing. His studio was even featured on “The Office” and was the location of the TV series “Tattoo Nightmares.” After a successful career, David is looking for something equally rewarding, but easier on the hands.
David serves the San Gabriel and San Fernando Valley areas and would love to expand into the Westside and beach communities of SoCal. He wanted to find a brokerage that fit right and after interviewing with a few big national brokerages, realized Deasy Penner Podley is where he felt at home. He was drawn to the dpp’s Instagram presence as well as programs such as Curate, which aims to help sellers get the best price for their home.
David’s hobbies include skiing, skateboarding, cycling, hiking, camping, and illustration; plus whatever projects his partner has around their home for him! David knows his experience as a tattoo artist has prepared him to be an excellent Realtor. After hustling in the tattoo industry for many years, he is a creative problem solver who cares genuinely for his clients and works hard to understand their wants and needs. David loves design and great architecture and is incapable of hiding his enthusiasm. He currently lives in East Pasadena with his partner, two sons, and two mini pinschers. He hopes to one day, flip a few properties and eventually buy a piece of land by a ski resort and build off-grid.
