Max Alatorre
Sales Associate | (310) 776-0921 |

Max Alatorre was just 20 years old when he earned his real estate license. Soon after earning his license he graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Business-Real Estate with a Finance background from Cal Poly University. During the early stage of his career, Max worked directly with a top producing So Cal team at Coldwell Banker where their combined 25 years of experience garnered the team many awards and a label as ‘Top 50 in So Cal ‘.

His success and experience soon led him to Gibson International where Max quickly excelled and joined with Peter & Ty Bergman of Bergman Beach Properties. Their team specializes in the listing and purchase of homes in the areas including Marina del Rey, Venice, Westchester, Playa del Rey, Santa Monica, Culver City or as some would call it the Westside. As a native to LA and more specifically Venice…Max knew the Westside was a niche and that selling homes in this locale would come naturally.

Max’s passion to be a top tier agent never stops as he participates in community activities, dedicates time to the Venice High School baseball program and continues his Real Estate education at UCLA. For fun, Max also has hobbies that include fishing, surfing, cooking and camping.
