Beverly Hills. Home to the world-renowned 90210 zip code that’s a breathtaking backdrop to a multitude of television shows, thanks to its alluring streets lined with towering palms on both sides. It’s a small town in a big city that’s best known for glitz, glamour, and its proximity to iconic landmarks and local haunts in the City of Angels. It’s also where, in 2013, real estate mogul Marv Peters founded his boutique real estate firm, Peters Realty Group. As an industry veteran who has closed $250 million in transactions as an institutional investor representative, and another $100 million transacted in residential real estate over his near decade in the field, Marv leads a team of real estate brokers, agents, and administrators with over 60 years of combined experience, providing top-notch service to investors and residential home buyers across the area, as well as commercial and asset management. The firm represents some of the largest institutional investors in the country—including Offerpad, Blackstone, Riverstone Residential Group, and Invitation Homes, which selected him to represent them in their billion-dollar investment in the Los Angeles residential market.
While the term “mogul” might conjure the image of a hands-off leader in a corner office, counting his profits, Marv could not be more contrary to this mold. He sees himself as “everybody’s broker.” And not just because his speaks four languages—English, Spanish, Tagalog, and French—but because, for him, it’s not the metric that matter, it’s the people he serves. “My motivation is, of course, to bring my clients extraordinary value, but my underlying driver is to use my success to contribute to this community that has given me so much,” he shares.
Marv’s career in real estate began before he even finished high school, working alongside his parents who built a thriving real estate firm from humble beginnings in the late 90’s. This exposure ignited a passion that has carried with him his entire career. He was trained by some of the industry’s most savvy real estate investment experts, learning the business from the ground up, and fell ever more in love with the field. Through decades of experience, having succeeded in all facets of residential and commercial real estate – acquisition, disposition, leasing, asset /property management and finance, Marv saw his net worth grow to seven figures, where he parlayed his success as a broker into his success as an investor.
Today, Marv is responsible for commercial assets valued at $120 million and the management of 150,000 square feet of multifamily properties, retail centers, office buildings, and office parks. All while bringing exceptional value to Peters Realty Group’s clients through analytics, substantial local market data, and in-depth local market knowledge, as well as the firm’s unwavering reputation and relationships throughout the broker community. “I was taught the value of relationships early, and I foster them. Our relationships are where we thrive,” he says.
Though Marv has long since arrived as a captain of industry, his heart lies where it always has—with his community. In 2015, Marv started the company’s Community Enrichment Program wherein a portion of each commission from every transaction is donated to a local school, nonprofit, or community benefit programs. “This is the most rewarding part of my job. Honestly, this is what drives me today.” he shares.
Marv received his bachelor’s from University of Phoenix and is a member of the SWLA Board of Realtors, National Association of Realtors, AIR CRE and CCIM.
