He covers Los Angeles from offices at Rodeo Realty’s Beverly Hills office where he is an Estates Director. With multiple offices located in Southern California, Rodeo Realty is the state’s single largest individually-owned real estate brokerage, and is comprised of one of the most sophisticated group of real estate professionals in the area.

Recent recognition and awards include, #1 Team at Rodeo Realty every year since 2012, 2013 Hollywood Reporter’s Top 25 LA Agents and #1 Agent status for multiple years at various Beverly Hills Brokerages.

Peter attended Dartmouth College and the University of California where he received a B.A. in Environmental Studies/Landscape Architecture. He received his law degree from U.C. Berkley (Boalt Hall) and practiced corporate, real estate and entertainment law with Greenberg, Glusker, Fields, Claman & Machtinger in Century City (admitted, Central District Court – California), before joining Jeffer, Mangels, Butler & Marmaro where he helped grow the entertainment transaction department. Subsequently, he served as Vice President, Legal Affairs, for 20th Century Fox Film Corporation.  Peter left the practice of law to pursue his true passion, real estate, and to represent the many individuals and entities with whom he transacted business over the years as a corporate and studio lawyer. Represented among his clients are lawyers, business and personal managers, physicians, investment bankers, real estate developers, various major studios and top studio executives, actors, writers, directors, and producers.

Marketing and advertising his properties in an aggressive, creative and directed manner, Peter sells his listings through a vast array of personal contacts in the community. Peter’s access to qualified buyers afforded by his contacts and experience is coupled with negotiating skills honed over three decades of working with demanding, high profile clientele. His ability to protect his clients by anticipating problems before they occur, and his unbridled advocacy, has earned him a reputation as one of the City’s most successful and talented real estate agents.

David Tamburo – Operations Director and Architectural Photographer

David holds the position of Operations Director for the Maurice-Rustad Team. He is a California licensed real estate agent, commencing his career in fashion marketing and sales nearly a decade ago. With commensurate experience as a professional photographer, Mr. Tamburo personally handles all aesthetic aspects of photography, as well as the sale and escrow process for all properties and purchases handled by the Team.

Key to David’s approach with photography is mindfulness: Not simply recording images of the property and cataloguing features, he understands how critical it is to take the time necessary to produce correct images to portray each property. His artful presentation of homes evokes the essence of what is, essentially, an emotional engagement of prospective buyers (and agents) viewing the Team’s listings. The process takes significant time, and David’s dedication to ‘getting it right’ is universally lauded by our agents.

David stays abreast of continuing trends in e-marketing, including state of the art web-design, social marketing and internet exposure maximization, for our clients. The clear ‘go to’ member of the Team, he has advanced through the ranks quickly, and has taken on Maurice & Rustad’s philosophy of hands-on, proactive service for all clientele, regardless of the level or detail involved, truly understanding the meticulous follow through and full service speaks volumes about how the firm’s principals believe our sellers and buyers should be treated.

David holds a Bachelor’s degree in Marketing Communications from Columbia College Chicago. In his spare time, David is an avid photographer enjoying all types, from landscape to lifestyle. David loves spending time with his girlfriend and their two dogs, pursuing music, cooking and dog rescuing.
