The Monterey Peninsula is a unique area that requires an equally unique knowledge base in order to fully harness the local real estate market. Carmel native Zak Freedman possesses that knowledge through a combination of education, data analysis, and a lifetime of local experience.

As a passionate photographer and videographer with a marketing background, Zak is an FAA commercial licensed drone pilot creating stunning video marketing for some of the most sought-after real estate in the country engaging audiences across multiple platforms maximizing exposure and reach.

Prior to becoming an agent, the UC Santa Cruz graduate spent nearly a decade in real estate finance funding commercial, development and residential projects across the United States, holding 12 state NMLS licenses as well as touring the US and UK extensively as the guitarist in Los Angeles-based rock band Halos. Zak's intimate knowledge of the banking industry is instrumental in providing his clients with a tailored, 360-degree approach to procuring access to this exclusive coastal community.
