Picture of Enrique Lizarazu

Enrique Lizarazu, owner of Lizarazu & Associates Inc. (a registered real estate agent for deasy penner podley of Pasadena),
represents buyers and sellers looking for residential and investment opportunities along the 210 Foothill Corridor from Sunland
to Glendora. With over 40 years of experience in the housing market as a real estate agent/broker, investor and developer,
Enrique has always challenged himself to accomplish what others may think is too difficult or downright impossible. While
serving on the Pasadena Development Commission, Enrique was named the “Real Estate go to guy” by city officials for his
overall knowledge about the housing industry. With both an expertise and a passion to help those with even complex financial
issues, Enrique has helped many property owners and investors build a nest egg, and in some cases, an empire.
Far from being a typical agent that just sells houses, Enrique has always taken on an active role in helping his clients solve
issues that stand in the way of building their property portfolios. In the 1980s, when many homeowners had difficulty finding
financing, Enrique began acting as an advocate for his clients to help them expand their investments by seeking solutions to
their financial challenges. To this day, he continues to find solutions to the different challenges that arise for his clients in the
ever-changing housing market.
Born in Bogota, Colombia, Enrique moved to Pasadena with his family as a child. While still in high school, he began working as
a Transaction Coordinator with his mother, a Realtor® with Bona Real Estate. In fact, Enrique was one of the first Transaction
Coordinators in the local real estate industry where he served as liaison between all parties from buyers and sellers to the title
companies, escrow companies and the lenders.
While attending Pasadena Community College and Cal Poly Pomona, Enrique worked as a part-time agent for the residential
real estate brokerage earning referral fees and commissions. Armed with a drive to succeed, Enrique’s commissions began to
exceed what his college professors were then earning, leading him to choose a full-time career in real estate after graduating.
In 1979, he became a licensed real estate agent and In 1984, he earned his Brokers License.
In 1993, Enrique’s expertise was recognized by others in the housing industry when he was appointed to a four-year term on
the Pasadena Community Development Commission. In 1995 and 1996, he additionally chaired the Affordable Housing
Committee, an offshoot of the PCDC, which created affordable housing in Pasadena by marrying government programs with
local, county and state programs.
From the mid 1990s to 2007, Enrique got further involved in the housing market as an investor and a developer of 25
affordable, single-family residences in the Pasadena area. In 2003, he founded Lizarazu and Associates, Inc., a Pasadena
realty that provided property management and representation for residential income properties, residential and multi-family
apartment complex sales. Over the next 28 years, built the realty’s reputation by successfully closing transactions ranging
from values of $45,000 to $6 million.
