About Me

Kathryn Yarnell has been a top producing agent for over two decades. She is a two time winner of the coveted “Malibu REALTOR® of the Year” award voted by her peers and faithfully served as President of the Malibu Assn. of Realtors in 2002. The Malibu Times awarded Kathryn “The Dolphin Award” for outstanding citizenship. Kathryn has served as a delegate to the National Assn. Realtors, and the California Assn. of REALTORS®

As a long time resident of Malibu, she considers herself to be a guide to what she calls “the hidden treasures of Malibu”—an eclectic mix of natural beauty and culture. Everything from the best surf breaks in Southern California to the most exhilarating hiking, horseback riding and biking trails and fabulous shopping hotspots.

Kathryn believes, “The home is a Client’s personal sanctuary and everyone should be able to enjoy the process of finding their perfect spot. I love working with people and taking the bumps out of the road to their real estate purchases and sales. Being an assertive advocate for my Clients is what I do best.”

For this passionate real estate veteran, distilling her love of real estate into a company, MALIBU PREMIER PROPERTIES, with her partner and husband, Don Burpee, is the most natural progression in her career. Don brings over two decades of experience in Banking and the Mortgage Business to the table which completes the “MPP” perfect package.

Kathryn has always possessed the entrepreneurial spirit. She previously owned an Interior Design Corporation and a Television Production Company. Her experience in these two creative businesses now translate into cutting edge marketing ideas and wining negotiation results for her Clients by finding creative solutions that require thinking outside the box.

Kathryn has no shortage of satisfied high profile clients who never hesitate to return to her for their real estate needs and confidently refer their associates, friends and family members to her knowing they will be in expert hands.
