Barb Brawner, a Realtor with Compass, joined The Orinda Association Board in January.

    Attorney and Realtor for Compass, Barb Brawner joined The Orinda Association Board of Directors at its January meeting.
    A long-time resident of Orinda, Brawner moved from Southern California to Orinda in 1964 with her family. After graduation from Miramonte, she moved south again to attend the University of California, Los Angeles and Loyola Law School.
    Following graduation, she worked as Senior Trial Counsel for USAA Financial Services and in private practice, both in Southern California and San Francisco, defending construction defect, asbestos and general liability cases. Retiring from legal practice in 2014, Brawner joined Pacific Union Real Estate (now Compass).
    “I’m passionate about construction, remodel and design,” said Brawner. “I love the Orinda community and the people who call it home. I’m very much looking forward to working with The Orinda Association and developing and expanding new and existing programs and services for our Orinda residents.”
    Brawner’s previous volunteer activity included Orinda Juniors, Orinda Jr. Garden Club, Acalanes Chapter National Charity League and Miramonte Boosters.
    “I’ve thoroughly enjoyed working with students be it at Lamorinda Idol, cleaning up the Wagner Ranch Nature Area or serving food at the football game snack shack,” she said.
    Brawner and her husband have two college-aged daughters attending the University of California, Berkeley and Princeton University. When not working or volunteering, she loves to ski, trail run, garden, ride horses and travel.
