Lori Beckwith was born and raised in Malibu and thrives on sharing her love of this one-of-a-kind community with her clients and friends. A second generation Malibu Realtor, Lori has a background in commercial real estate sales and leasing and has supervised multiple executive office centers, marketing office properties and negotiating executive and corporate transactions. A California attorney with experience working for the California Association of Realtors, Lori's professionalism and expertise guides her residential clients to accomplish their goals and leads them smoothly and confidently through real estate transactions.
Lori is a graduate of the University of Southern California Gould School of Law and the U.S.C. Marshall School of Business and is well-connected, both personally and professionally, within the California market, especially Malibu. Clients who work with Lori and her husband, Patrick Witting, a Stanford PhD in Mathematics, benefit from the communication skills, intelligence and negotiating power of two experienced professionals to represent them.
Patrick is a real estate agent you’d love to have on your side. A Stanford Ph.D. in Scientific Computing and Computational Mathematics, a First Team Academic All-American Division I college basketball player, class valedictorian and a 20-year entertainment industry supervisor and effects artist, Patrick brings calm intelligence and persistence to the table that makes good things happen for anyone with whom he is associated. Key to Patrick’s success, and a great asset to his clients in negotiating on their behalf, Patrick anticipates problems before they arise, identifies and defines issues, then works cooperatively with principals to resolve those issues.
Patrick and his wife, Lori Beckwith, work as a team, so that their clients enjoy the benefits of the synergy of Patrick’s negotiating skills and intelligence, with Lori’s accomplished real estate sales and legal background. An incomparable marketing tool for Patrick’s clients is the team’s news, lifestyle and real estate website, zMalibu.com, which attracts visitors and potential buyers with well-written, in-depth articles from a fresh and truly local perspective.
As a college basketball player who grew up in Fairfax, Virginia, Patrick first came to Malibu to play in a basketball tournament at Pepperdine University. Amazed at the beauty of Malibu, and the thought that students actually went to school in such an awesome place, Patrick vowed to himself to return. After graduating from American University in Washington D.C., he moved to Palo Alto, California for graduate studies at Stanford University. By way of Dreamworks, Disney and Sony Imageworks, Patrick ultimately found his way back to Malibu, where he owns two homes, is happily involved in the local community and is raising a son and a daughter who attend Malibu Middle School.
Not one to sit around much, Patrick plays soccer, beach volleyball and basketball, surfs, and has completed the Nautica Malibu Triathlon. He also enjoys sharing his love of sports with kids, and has coached several Malibu AYSO soccer teams.
