Trent, a top-producing luxury residential real estate agent, hails from Southern California. He graduated from the University of Michigan in 2009 and was drafted by Cincinnati Bengals in 2009. During the off-seasons, he continued to work in realty.
Trent works with agent Andi McAfee. She holds real estate licenses for California and South Carolina, and is a member of The Beverly Hills Greater Los Angeles Association of Realtors.
“The Christie’s International Real Estate brand alone gives me the look and feel that I wasn’t able attain at other brokerages, and it is much more aligned to where we see Trent Luxury going in the next several years,” Trent stated in a prepared statement.
Trent sold 5 Avalon Vista (a $21 million property) and 627 Moreno (a $19.5 million property). His firm was also responsible in the largest Westwood home transaction of 2022. Trent represented Russell Westbrook, a member of the L.A. Lakers, in the sale of a Brentwood property worth $36.5 million.
“Morgan is one the best real estate agents in the country with a huge database of the who’s who. Christie’s International Real Estate.
