A hardworking, dedicated professional who first made a name for herself in Santa Monica's Sunset Park neighborhood and has since become one of the Westside's top agents, Megan Whalen, GRI, is the go-to resource for home buyers and sellers looking for the ultimate in service. Whalen works with clients ranging from first-time buyers to those looking to sell estate properties, however, the majority of her clients are referrals and repeats — the true mark of excellence in real estate.

Prior to joining Gibson International, Whalen excelled for Coldwell Banker, having been coaxed into the business by none other than Gibson International President and CEO Scott Gibson.

"I got into real estate thanks to Scott Gibson, who was a client of mine from a previous business. He always said he thought that I would be great, but I resisted for many years. Once I got my license, I joined Coldwell Banker's Santa Monica Wilshire office," said Whalen, who consistently earned President's Circle and Diamond Society honors.

The hard work required of successful real estate agents suited Whalen's work ethic, and her client list grew in lockstep with her achievements as she earned a place among the Top 10% of Realtors in her office since opening its doors in 2008 and #1 Agent in 2015, 2013, and 2011. In addition, Whalen has been recognized as one of America’s Best Real Estate Agents by Real Trends in 2016, 2015, and 2014. Today, she continues to apply her dedication, marketing savvy, integrity, and negotiation skills towards helping make clients' dreams come true at Gibson International.

"Megan has an entrepreneurial spirit and a dedication to consistent service that is well suited for this business, which is why I sought to work with her initially and why I wanted her to be a member of the Gibson International team, "said Gibson International President Scott Gibson. "Megan is one of those rare individuals who combines intelligence and people skills with a drive to do the best for her clients. She has established herself as a key Westside Realtor through her commitment to professionalism, her honest approach, and her service orientation. She is a valuable asset to her clients and to us, and we are proud to be working with her." read less «

Megan was really great to work with from beginning to end. She is an expert on the Westside properties, quickly got a sense of the things I was looking for in a new home and was able to steer me in the right direction from the start. As I was a first-time home buyer she helped me get through a smooth escrow, and was especially helpful in keeping everything on track to close early! She also made herself available multiple times to meet with me and my contractors to do remodel estimates. What was especially great was that she made a smart recommendation for our offer price and I ended up saving money in the long run! I highly recommend Megan Whalen to anyone looking to buy/sell property. She's a total professional!

Megan is a total pro. Classy, patient, knowledgeable, kind and considerate. I have known Megan for years and hired her to list our home for sale and/or for lease (whichever came first) and find a rental for us in the Palisades in 30 days! What a task! When it came to showing our home she was amazing and treated everyone that came in with such class and respect and took the time to answer ALL questions and also knew the right questions to ask and was ready and willing to point out the pros and cons of selling/leasing/waiting, etc...She is very friendly, everyone in the business speaks very highly of her, truly one of a kind. Ultimately, we didn't end up selling due to reasons outside of our control, but we did manage to lease our home within a few days! Even though Megan sacrificed multiple evenings and weekends showing the home and searching for a right rental she wasn't the least bit upset that we weren't able to sell in such a short time period .She always stayed positive about the whole situation even though we were down in the dumps for not selling so quickly she told us that she looked forward to working with us again when we were ready to sell and purchase again. The feeling is certainly mutual, Megan!

Megan recently helped me sell my home & buy a new one. My house was a particularly hard one to sell, as it was located on a busy intersection near several schools & the market was very tight. Megan stuck with it through several months and multiple offers. She knew how to present my home & showcase it's best qualities. More importantly she help me stay positive through some difficult negotiations. When purchasing my new house, Megan realized how much I wanted the home, which she successfully negotiated for me even after the seller had taken it off the market ! A great experience on both homes.

In the middle of the bad real estate market in early 2009 I needed to sell my mother's house. I didn't know any real estate agents, so I went to many open houses to see some realtors in action. I choose Megan Whalen out of all of them because of her professional attitude and charming manner. She came over to the house exactly at the time she said she would, and explained the selling process in detail. I could tell she was honest, and I felt comfortable that I could relax and let her handle everything in her own way. So I signed the contract to have her sell the house. In the middle of the bad real estate market, she used her special marketing techniques on the Internet and elsewhere, and sold the house at a very good price in an amazing one month's time. She put her own furniture in the house and had her handyman fix it so that it would sell easier. Since I couldn't be there, she even went over to the house every evening to do little things, such as making sure the trash barrels went out on time, and generally watched over the house. She kept me informed at all times about what was happening, and she put all the documents on a CD so I'd have them for future reference. She exceded the normal expectations of a good agent in every way, including the closing process in escrow. I couldn't have been happier with her service, and highly recommend her to anyone that needs to sell their house.

We first met Megan when we purchased a condo through her. She is very knowledgeable about the real estate market on the Westside, she is super proactive and prompt and she has an incredible amount of energy and drive - all to ensure that your needs are attended to. She rates very high on integrity and trustworthiness. We would use Megan again without hesitation and we recommend her highly to friends.

We worked on two transactions with Megan Whalen, in two very distinct RE markets, and in both instances she was very successful in achieving the outcome we were interested in. She is very professional, kind, pleasant to interact with, she is very responsive on the phone or via email, and she represented our interests well. She is also very generous with her time and energy, works hard and does it all with a smile on her face. Her trade referrals were invaluable and she guided us through many of the intricacies of the Real Estate process that we would not have known about otherwise. She also sticks with a client through rough and smooth sailing and delivers as promised! I felt I could trust Megan completely and it was great to have her on our side.

There aren't enough stars to describe the superlative talents I viewed in Megan Whalen. When she took on the task of selling the property at Euclid and Maple there was no way of knowing that she would be required to be a psychiatrist, friend, tireless mentor, and patient professional. We were required due to tragic circumstances to get the Los Angeles Superior Court's approval at every step of the process from listing to accepting offers to disbursing proceeds and providing a home completely acceptable to the new owners. Megan managed to keep all offers alive during the months required and helped the new owners stay reassured during this arduous process. Megan is a ten. Other agents were complaining of having no sales and Megan was closing escrows constantly during the time we were working with her. If you want your property sold at the price you want, contact Megan. She is the most impressive customer service professional I have had the pleasure of working with. I hope that the new owners have added a review but they are probably just busy nesting in their new fabulous home and enjoying it. Those who made offers which were not accepted are no doubt buying other properties with Megan as her buyers never lost faith in her…
