beverly hills: Happy Anniversary, Rich Kids Real Estate: The Brokerage - 06/08/12 08:26 AM
There are a lot of anniversaries to celebrate: weddings, relationships, baby’s first steps, divorce settlements, your first BMW, and the list goes on! I wanted to make a special announcement about my greatest love – the one year anniversary of my brokerage, Rich Kids Real Estate. Be prepared, as this is going to be a long entry!!!! I developed the Rich Kids brand under the corporate umbrella of Keller Williams BH in 2009. Having gained quite a bit of name recognition, I became a broker and  turned the brand into an independent brokerage on June 8th, 2011. I could not have asked … (0 comments)

beverly hills: Just Listed: 419 S. Almont Dr, Beverly Hills, CA, 3br/2ba - $1,295,000 - 05/18/12 04:54 AM
Rich Kids Real Estate is proud to present a listing, that in my humble opinion, is currently the best value in the City of Beverly Hills.  What I love about this property is that it is has the perfect juxtaposition between traditional and splashes of contemporary. This home has been in the family for decades, with an addition added on in the late 60′s/early 70′s as I understand it and then a full remodel in 2002. I am huge fan of traditional public rooms that exude a sense a warmth with rich hardwood floors, crown moldings, and elegant yet simple furnishings. … (3 comments)

beverly hills: Just Listed: 1618 Mountcrest Avenue, Hollywood Hills - 3br/4ba, Approx 2000 sq ft - Offered at $1,299,000 - 04/13/12 10:52 AM

This property not only embodies the ultimate Hollywood lifestyle, but grabs it by the balls by showcasing unobstructed panoramic views of Downtown LA, Century City, and the entire Los Angeles basin below. Presented over 3 stories built to maximize dramatic city views from every room (including the garage), those looking for the ultimate in hillside living will not be … (4 comments)

beverly hills: Just Sold: 8600 Wonderland - 2br/2ba, Hollywood Hills - List (Not Formally Listed), Purchase: $752,000 - 04/10/12 11:04 AM
I am pleased to announce the first of three sales over the last 10 days! With multiple properties closing simultaneously, my blogging has been delayed as a consequence.
My clients had been leasing this home for almost 2 years after moving here from NYC. I have to say, my New Yorkers are the hardest to initially convert to Angelenos. However, once they drink the Cali Kool Aid, it’s all over. Having built a friendship over the last 2 years, I taunted them with the notion that they have just had a baby who is now a native of Los Angeles (Hollywood, … (2 comments)

beverly hills: Sex on the Beach - Rich Kids Surf Day A Total Blast - 02/18/12 09:10 AM
Rich Kids Surf Day was an awesome way to kick off Living Richly with Rich Kids!!!! We had about 7 people turn up (not everyone wanted to be photographed in their suits, lol), caught some waves, and had a amazing time. Surfing in mid February…this is what living in LA is all about!!! Life can be so hectic, that it is completely reinvigorating to get out there and just enjoy the SoCal lifestyle.
There is a perception amongst people who have never been to LA that life here is all about the sex, the parties, beautiful homes, hanging at the beach … (1 comments)

beverly hills: Free Surf Clinic with Rich Kids, Saturday, Feb 18th @ 9am in Santa Monica - 02/16/12 09:43 AM
One of the things that I treasure most about Rich Kids more than anything else is the relationships that are made throughout the buying and selling process. I’ve always said that we are a social network unto ourselves in the sense that a fellow agent or client can call me or my team with a question about real estate, but can also call me when they’ve been dumped, landed a great gig they want to share, or just need someone to listen. There is certainly a bond that we share with our clients that is distinctly Rich Kids that I really … (0 comments)

beverly hills: Rich Kids is Turning Up the Heat for Winter 2012 - 01/25/12 05:30 PM
Happy belated 2012! It’s been a while since I have hit the sheets (of paper that is) and posted new entries. After a well earned Christmas in London and an awesome New Years in Berlin, we are all back in full force. Although in truth, we never stopped. Paperwork on Christmas, signatures New Years Eve...a Turbo Rich Kid Agent is there for you and ready to go...any time, any place, any country.
This week, Rich Kids has a new sale closing in the prime Hollywood Hills off Queens Road with some of the most amazing panoramic views you have ever seen. … (2 comments)

beverly hills: The 5 Day Escrow - Just Sold - 447 North Doheny #301, Beverly Hills, CA 90210 - List:$1,650,000/Sale: $1,500,000 - 10/17/11 10:01 AM
I am pleased to announce an uber significant sale for Rich Kids Real Estate Group for two reasons: 1) This was a record breaking sale for me in terms of the closing period. My client immediately fell in love with the property and we recorded within 5 days from acceptance of offer – my fastest escrow period…ever. It would not have been possible without the help of an individual who I have looked up to since before I became a licensed agent  (see next item). 2) I had the opportunity to work with the most accomplished and recognized residential developer in Beverly … (3 comments)

beverly hills: Just Sold - 9601 Charleville Blvd #6, Beverly Hills, CA 90212 - 07/20/11 05:09 PM
 
Out of all the buildings in Beverly Hills, one of my absolute favorites is 9601 Charleville Blvd. Located on the corner of Charleville and Peck, this development is the epitome of simple, refined elegance. This recently done condo conversion was executed by one of my personal heroes of the development world, Lyn Konheim of Buckeye Properties in Beverly Hills. Lyn has a knack for classic sophistication and it is easy to recognize his thumbprints on various multi family dwellings peppered throughout the city. For those of you who are local, you might recognize another one of his iconic buildings (also a … (0 comments)

beverly hills: Just Sold/For Lease by Rich Kids: 1131 Alta Loma #504, Prime Sunset Strip/WeHo - List: $350,000, Sold: $335,000 - 07/05/11 12:20 PM

I was trying to think of a good analogy for investment/portfolio building condo purchases such as, “Investment condos are the new…” but I was drawing a blank. I then think back to a time in the mid 2000′s when buyer’s were all about purchasing duplexes (or is it “dupli” if it’s plural). The duplex doesn’t make quite as much sense now as it did back then, so it hit me…”Investment condos are the new duplexes for 2011″. Buyer’s are pouncing on condos that have a low sales price and a long proven rental comp history. This unit at Park Wellington … (0 comments)

beverly hills: In a Place Where Fantasy and Reality Collide...Rich Kids Real Estate: The Brokerage - 06/11/11 05:23 PM
Since the beginning ofthe new year, I have been hinting that change was in the air. After earning my CA State Broker's License this past April, my business partner Victoria Wood and I are pleased to announce the launch of Rich Kids Real Estate: The Brokerage in the heart of Beverly Hills' Golden Triangle. I can definitively say that Rich Kids Real Estate is the first independently owned brokerage specifically geared towards the youth demographic in existence today.

We celebrated the launch of the new brokerage with a blow out party last week for all of our clients and friends at … (12 comments)

beverly hills: The 2010 Market Recap Part 2 – West Hollywood/Beverly Center & Beverly Hills Condos - 12/08/10 06:47 AM

Rich Kids Real Estate Slick Architectural Sale - $875,00 - The Penthouse - 7917 Willoughby
What I am noticing is that there is a common theme between the market activity at The Rob Clark (which I reported on yesterday) and that of the West Hollywood/Beverly Hills areas. After putting together a quantitative analysis of 2009 vs. 2010, the following themes have remained constant across the board: higher sales volume in 2010, smaller gap between list vs. sale (meaning sellers are starting to price per what the market is dictating), and a slight dip in actual sales price this year compared … (0 comments)

beverly hills: Hot Lease Opportunity in Beverly Hills - Large 1br/1ba - $3000/month - 08/11/10 07:51 AM
Over the last six weeks, I feel like there has been a constant theme to my blog, which is that I always start out by apologizing for the recent lack of updates. Today is no different. As I get older, I am not a huge believer in excuses but I am just going to toss one out there anyway. The good news for buyers is that the market is incredibly hot right now if you are ready to take the leap. Over the last 10 days, I have put four properties into solid escrows with the first closing August 20th. Nothing makes me happier than when I … (0 comments)

beverly hills: What’s Your Definition of the Westside of LA? The Debate Amongst Angelenos - 06/24/10 12:21 PM
My best friend is a long time Westside resident and I too have spent my fair share living in that neck of the woods. We have never questioned the parameters of what was deemed West LA. It was a basic understanding and an unspoken truth that we shared with our fellow neighbors. From our post work-out free for alls at the Souplantation in the Brent-hood to our sheer glee followed by our utter despair when they opened  and then ultimately closed the first/last Chili's to grace Westwood Village (fine, I totally own it - I love nothing more than Chili's queso dip and a Blue Pacifico margarita to wash it down), we knew the mean streets of the … (0 comments)

beverly hills: Inexpensive Summer Fun While You’re Saving to Buy a Home - 06/23/10 10:00 AM
OK, summer "fun" might be a bit of a stretch, but since it's a slow week in the world of real estate (not a ton of great inventory yesterday to showcase nor much by way as market news) I thought I would share some things to do and places to grab a bite while you are saving for that 20% deposit to put down on the purchase of your new home. Let's face it, when you are a rich kid on a bud-jay (as in Tar-jay) for whatever the reason (maybe you are saving for your new home, just bought it, or are simply a flat broke rich … (2 comments)

beverly hills: Rich Kids Real Estate Group Presents a New Offering of Exceptional Style and Refinement in Beverly Hills - 1br/1ba - $595,000 - 06/07/10 08:09 AM
As you know, I always try to remain objective about the properties I am presenting as well as other agent's listings.  Objectively speaking with the research to back it up, I can say that this unit is without a doubt the nicest condo in Beverly Hills within this price point. Beverly Hills has always been a mish mash of part amazing and part "I am only living in this place for either a) the school district or b) the prestige factor". In the condo world, there is not much by way of new construction and slick modern amenities unless you are willing to pay a huge premium for it. More times … (0 comments)

beverly hills: As Suze Would Say, “DENIED” - Lock Down on Beverly Hills Unified School System Exemptions - Sales on $1-2 Million Homes Soar - 05/14/10 05:01 AM
There are ample reasons why one would want to live in Beverly Hills, but one of the biggest is for the school system. Beverly Hills Unified School District is considered by many to be one of the finest in the country and most certainly in Los Angeles County. For all of you older rich kids, do you remember on the original 90210 when Andrea used to take the bus from the Van Nuys to BH every day so that she could get a stellar education at the fictitious West Beverly  (side note: apparently Beverly Hills is now an ocean front community - … (0 comments)
