rich kids real estate: 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)

rich kids real estate: 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)

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)

rich kids real estate: Just Sold: Shoreham Towers - 8787 Shoreham Dr #206, Prime Hollywood Hills - List: $469,000/Sale: $400,000 - 04/13/12 05:05 AM
 
It’s a rainy day here in LA, so I thought it was the perfect opportunity to update my sales over the last 10 days. I am sorry for slamming my subscribers with constant updates but when it rains it pours (literally and metaphorically). It’s the perfect day to sit inside with a large mug of coffee and get caught up on things such as blogging. While many people outside of SoCal hate days like these, many of us Angelenos appreciate them quite a bit. When it is sunny and 75 every day, one feels guilty about being indoors. Even my … (0 comments)

rich kids real estate: Just Sold: The Rob Clark, 141 S. Clark Drive, BH Adj. - 1br/1ba Short Sale - List: $295,000/Sale: $312,800 - 04/13/12 03:39 AM
Rich Kids has been slammed this winter, which has been such a wonderful blessing. With that said, I excited to share my newest sale which was a real steal of a deal and a double banger, if you will (that goes out to my friends GC and RG at GB) at the Rob Clark. What was especially dynamic about this sale is that although I have done many short sales, I took it upon myself to also be the negotiator on the deal directly with Wells Fargo.  Side Note: A short sale is when the owner is underwater on the property … (2 comments)

rich kids real estate: 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)

rich kids real estate: 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)

rich kids real estate: 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)

rich kids real estate: Just Sold: 1618 Mountcrest Avenue, Prime Hollywood Hills 90069 - List:$921,000/Sale:$955,000 - 02/03/12 01:35 PM
I am pleased to announce the sale of 1618 Mountcrest Ave off of Queens Road in the prime Sunset Plaza section of the West Hollywood Hills. My client and I had been looking extensively for a major view home in a prime neighborhood that could be totally slicked up in the next couple of years for under 1 million. Let me tell you, this was not an easy thing to find and when you do find that rare diamond that meets the above criteria, you have to pounce immediately.
I don’t think the photos convey  just how explosive the views are. … (1 comments)

rich kids real estate: A Lease Worth Selling Your Family For: 825 North Kings Rd #15, West Hollywood - $5000 Per Month - 01/28/12 11:16 AM
I post my blog entries not only on the Rich Kids site and via Facebook, but also through several other real estate related sites as well. Out of the many properties that I have listed and sold, I have to say that this property probably garnered the most attention (OK…maybe second to 8180 Mannix up in the hills). My clients purchased this REO sale in early September for a steal of a deal to use as an investment property. I heard it was hitting the market, literally hopped on a plane from visiting friends in DC at 5am, headed straight to the condo … (1 comments)

rich kids real estate: 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)

rich kids real estate: Just Listed - 1862 Laurel Canyon, Hollywood Hills - Lot 10,900 Sold for Land Value - $560,000 - 11/21/11 07:03 AM
It’s been an interesting time in the real estate market. I have been noticing a lot (pun intended) of properties that are either tear downs, distressed, or in need of major renovations being snapped up with multiple offers in a matter of days. They can be on the lower end of the spectrum as well the upper echelon of price points of $4.5 + (also going into multiples). Having had a tremendous 2011, what is apparent to me is that buyers are recognizing that we have reached the bottom of the market and are scooping up all major investment opportunities with … (0 comments)

rich kids real estate: 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)

rich kids real estate: Just Sold - 825 North Kings RD #15 - List: $734,900/Sale: $734,900 - Architectural Masterpiece in WeHo - 10/03/11 08:48 AM
825 North Kings Rd, #15, West Hollywood, CA 90069 – 2br/2.5ba, Roughly 1590 sq ft – List: $734,900/Sale: $734,900 – Days on Market – 4
I have been in love with this Lorcan O’ Herlihy original for quite some time. If you live in or know the West Hollywood area well, most people are familiar with this iconic and in my opinion, one of the most architecturally significant buildings in the city. Lorcan has a knack for creating unique design aesthetics that literally pop out at you when you drive by. When Lorcan makes his presence known on your street, the area is automatically catapulted to another … (1 comments)

rich kids real estate: Just Sold: The Charlie Chaplin House/1494 N Kings Rd - List: $1,725,000/Sale: $1,650,000 - 09/15/11 07:11 AM
I am pleased to announce the sale of Charlie Chaplin’s residence on 1494 North Kings Road in the prime Hollywood Hills. Escrow was closed yesterday and I could not be happier for my Buyer! As an agent I certainly enjoy being able to make a living doing what I love, but my true satisfaction always comes from seeing the pure excitement on a client’s face on closing day! I think I say this in every “Just Sold” article, but I am always reminded of this fact with each closing!
When you have an extraordinary synergy with the team facilitating the sale … (3 comments)

rich kids real estate: The Rich Kids Open House - 07/22/11 12:30 PM
Now any real estate agent can throw an open house with a sign in sheet and property set ups, but an open house hosted by Rich Kids Real Estate is not your mother’s open house. For those of you who are Ab Fab junkies like myself, to quote Patsy Stone, “It’s not a rave…it’s a happening”. That’s how we feel out our open houses. It’s not just a Sunday open,  but a major event that needs to be celebrated (the introduction of your home to the public). It doesn’t matter if it’s the first or 10th open house, there are always going … (1 comments)

rich kids real estate: 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)

rich kids real estate: Loan Talk with Lender Lauren - The Pledged Asset Program - 07/18/11 06:35 PM
 
I am turning over today’s installment of the Rich Kids Blog to Lender, Lauren Boland. Much like Oprah has SUZE (love her) for money talk, Dr. Phil for mental health (hmmm), and Nate Burkis for home decor (eye candy), Rich Kids Real Estate has our own group of specialists in various areas of the real estate industry. What I love about Lauren is that she can talk loans all day long with the same passion and fervor that I have for discussing property. Why I think she is integral to Rich Kids is that she makes lending (which at times … (0 comments)

rich kids real estate: 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)
