Blockchain Technology to Record Real Estate Documentation Announced

Palo Alto, California-based global blockchain real estate marketplace, Propy, Inc. is launching a pilot program to record real estate documentation using blockchain technology in South Burlington, Vermont, a state that is increasingly known for being friendly to blockchain development. 

“The startup, headed by founder Natalia Karayaneva, uses Blockchain protocols to record real estate transactions on a ledger that governments can use to tie titles to properties securely and efficiently. Propy also works to match buyers with both seller and brokers and offers information on neighborhoods where the properties are located,”  — CoinTelegraph.

“…[The Pilot project is] emblematic of Vermont’s long history of innovating business, insurance, and financial technology. We are fortunate to have a cutting edge statutory framework that enables the use of blockchain technology, and we will continue to work with the legislature to ensure Vermont remains at the forefront of these innovations.”

Your typical lot in this area as you know is 25 x 100. It is REALLY rare to find a lot like this one; in essence, it’s a lot and a half. House is livable but is a bit dated.

Bring your contractor and make this home the coolest Golden Triangle home on a one-way street for low traffic, nice and quiet and calm. And did I mention the awesome lot size? No “tall and skinny” here. We’re a nicely plump lot and a half!

Urban Sanctuary

New West Hollywood residences pair luxe, private environs with easy access to nearby shops, restaurants, entertainment, parks and more

Written by Wendy Bowman | Photography Courtesy of The Agency

“A true rarity in West Hollywood” is how developer Nick Hertz describes 1345 Havenhurst, his new boutique collection of contemporary, eco-friendly townhomes nestled in a private residential setting just one block from the lively Sunset Strip. Designed by architects Stephen Kanner and Deborah Richmond, expect a stark-white façade accented with aluminum, glass and natural wood cladding joined with unobstructed and protected views stretching from the Hollywood Hills to Century City and Downtown L.A. An attractive living green wall, meanwhile, improves air quality while adding a touch of beauty to the building’s common areas.

“Our project is targeted to homeowners who like to be close to all the action, but off on a quiet side street,” says Hertz. “The ability to walk to everything you would need and enjoy is an appealing part of Havenhurst. Certified as a green building by the city of West Hollywood—and featuring a resource-efficient design that complements the surrounding Hollywood Hills setting with a vibrant, living green wall—this property boasts truly thoughtful living in the heart of L.A.’s hustle and bustle.”

Found at 1345 Havenhurst Drive—near Soho House, Chateau Marmont, The Tower Bar, Hyde Sunset Kitchen + Cocktails, and Everleigh—the new development offers more than 27,000 square feet of residential space, with prices starting at $1.375 million. Included is 16 multistory and garden terrace townhomes, plus penthouses ranging from 1,490 to 1,963 square feet. Construction was completed in September 2017, with sales now being exclusively handled by The Agency.

Various floor plans are available, complete with soaring ceilings; floor-to-ceiling windows; wide-plank oak flooring; Carrara marble countertops; custom Italian-designed cabinetry with German hardware; and Bosch appliances. Among the amenities: dedicated outdoor spaces, including private patios and rooftop terraces, as well as electric car-charging stations and entry gates sporting video monitoring systems.

“Havenhurst is a window into West Hollywood and is elevating living like it’s yet to be seen in this highly sought-after area,” says Hertz. “The 360-degree views that stretch from the Hollywood Hills to Century City and Downtown L.A. are protected due to new construction zoning, another offering making Havenhurst even more one-of-a-kind.”

The Flats Fantastic

808 Rexford Drive

Beverly Hills Flats | Double Lot | 26,800 Sq.Ft.

$58.888 Million

Christophe Choo of Coldwell Banker Global Luxury has introduced a luxurious Beverly Hills Flats estate to the market for $58.888 million, the highest price ever recorded for a residential property in its neighborhood. Situated on a double lot spanning 1.68 acres at 808 Rexford Drive, the gated European-style villa was designed by noted architect Budd Holden and built in 1990.

Featured is 26,800 square feet of amenity-filled living space, including a two-story wine cellar; a billiards room; a media room; a two-story, wood-paneled library; and eight bedrooms (including a 5,000-square-foot master suite). The manicured grounds, meanwhile, boast a duo of guesthouses; a sunken tennis court; a pool with waterfall and slide; a championship croquet court; and most notably, a whimsical train station and electric and steam-rideable miniature railroad trains.


The former Beverly Hills residence of longtime Wheel of Fortune co-host Vanna White has entered the market for $47.5 million.

75 Beverly Park LN


“This home has 14,554 square feet of interior living space spread over eight bedrooms, 10 bathrooms, a gym with a mini-spa and a basement made for entertaining,” says listing agent Mauricio Umansky of The Agency. Found in the exclusive guard-gated community of Beverly Park at 75 Beverly Park Lane—on 5-plus acres rife with lush landscaping and towering palm trees—the Tuscan vineyard estate was built in 1997.


Among the other highlights: a wine cellar with all of the wine produced in the property’s private vineyard; a resort-style pool and spa; and a massive motor court boasting a water fountain and a four-car garage.“One highlight to note is the fine details, including vaulted ceilings, arched windows, floor-to-ceiling French doors and a unique set of iron-clad staircases.” 

South Bay Tops $4.1 Billion in Real Estate Sold

$4,116,845,572 Worth of Real Estate Was Sold in South Bay in 2017

The local real estate market has been rocking the past couple of years, and 2017 was no exception. Manhattan Beach continues to lead the charge and closed the year with a new record average sales price of $3,080,193. Manhattan Beach also had two record sales over $20 million, as 1000 The Strand broke the all-time high of $21,000,000. Interesting, of the (11) total closed sales over $10 million in the South Bay, Manhattan had (8) of them! (PVE & Hermosa Beach each had one.) Finally, there were (55) total closed sales over $5 million last year, and (114) at or above the $4 million mark!

Looking back, the ultra-high end slowed a bit towards the middle of 2017, but regained steam to close the year strong. The lack of available inventory was, once again, the big story as buying demand was solid, especially in the under $2 million range. Check out the chart below to see how it looked per city.

Although it is often said that the year ahead will be “interesting,” 2018 might actually be. The outlook for the year is moderate growth in home prices as the economy continues to stay hot – but that could change with the proposed (3) interest rate hikes this year, tax regulation changes, and any stock market correction. And don’t forget the geo-political landscape, which could change at a moments notice.

Beyond what’s happening in the local real estate market, one thing is for sure, it’s sure hard to beat the lifestyle here in the South Bay.

Wishing you all the best in 2018!

Sensational Seaview

A delightful, extensively renovated family retreat with lush grounds and generous views beckons one home in Palos Verdes Estates. Ideally located along Via Arco, this welcoming family compound gleams in the Southern California sunshine. Blissfully perched atop Palos Verdes Estates, its homeowners relish bountiful views of the Queen’s Necklace, Santa Monica Mountains and as far west as the Channel Islands.

Starting with great curb appeal and a meticulously attended lawn, the property’s beautiful landscapes were designed by Rick Dykstra, whose enchanting flowerbeds filled with Magnolia and Camellia trees, roses and azaleas ornament the house and sidewalks. The focal point in the front courtyard is a lovely fountain, which, coupled with dormer windows, crisp-white wood and classic brick exterior, add to the home’s inviting feel. From the curb, the size of 1409 Via Arco appears quaint, but once inside, one immediately sees vast ocean views and glimpses just how expansive the home actually is: a sprawling 6,258 square feet with five bedrooms and seven baths sitting on an almost 30,000-square-foot lot.

An open voluminous foyer with an abundance of light welcomes one to this home. A beautiful Yugoslavian chandelier with a motorized drop radiates rainbows of luminescence throughout the bright space. The amazing sea view, enjoyed from most every room, is instantly visible via the adjacent formal living room, where one can easily move from room to room, through the formal dining room and into the kitchen. These well-illuminated rooms are a credit to French doors and floor-to-ceiling paned windows that all open out onto the large wrap-around balcony.

The abode’s professional-grade kitchen is chockfull of top-of-the-line appliances: two oversized Sub-Zero refrigerators, a Wolf range with a French cooktop, and various other amenities by Viking. The kitchen island is expansive with an eat-in bar and vegetable prep sink. A gorgeous stainless and brass scalloped hood lend a touch of je ne sais quoi to the bright atmosphere. Noteworthy is the amazing craftsmanship in the cabinetry and the detail work that has been carefully repeated throughout the home in its moldings, doorway trim, staircase woodwork and fireplaces, all handcrafted by well-known Enkeboll Design. 

The distinguished yet relaxed family room is quite unique. While the well-lit space captures signature views from over-sized windows, it’s the beautifully handcarved paneled walls and attention to craftsmanship that emphasize its beguiling singularity. With two other living/family rooms in the home, this space could easily translate into a game room with a pool table or a library. In the corner of the room is a generous, full-sized, walk-in wet bar, temperature controlled wine cellar and cold storage room. There is also a guest bathroom here and a private office.

Upstairs, the spacious master suite is tucked away from the balance of the home. A wall of windows wrapping the perimeter offer breathtaking views of the Channel Islands and across the Queen’s Necklace. A recessed ceiling and marble fireplace complement the room’s traditional style. The suite also contains a large tiled master bath, and two separate but brilliantly designed walk-in closets. 

The bottom floor of the home features two adjoining wings, each with two bedrooms. All four of the children’s bedrooms and/or guest bedrooms are generous in size featuring hardwood floors; three with en-suite baths, and two with full baths just steps away, all with unique yet cohesive tilework. Each of these guest rooms enjoy ocean views and large custom designed closets, and the northernmost guest room opens out onto the outdoor patio area by French doors, which makes for easy access to restrooms when entertaining. Also included on this level is an additional family room with a small wet bar area, a space that could be a nice den or homework area for kids.

The home has undergone extensive renovations. In addition to the installation of wide plank hardwood floors, updates to moldings, and the completion of a major exterior overhaul to modernize the home’s overall look, the owners greatly upgraded the kitchen. Along the way were aesthetic updates as well as improvements to enhance the home’s flow (opening up walls and completely renovating and even moving stairwell passages).

Of the extensive overall, “We added the wood to the exterior, the slate roof, stucco, and copper rain gutters and lighting all throughout the exteriors,” says the owner of the incredibly clean and cared for home that looks newly built. Adds Realtor Wendy Sun of Re/Max Estate Properties, “Architecturally, this is a one-of- a-kind home for Palos Verdes Estates. It is rare to find a residence in this neighborhood that is not Mediterranean, or one with such extensive remodeling.”

With their children starting their own families in a nearby city, the home’s current owners are relocating closer to help the growing clan, but share, “This is a great family home, and it has been so loved . . . it deserves a family, and while it is hard for us to leave, we are excited for the right family to love this home as much as we have.”

The crescendo to this stately abode is its tranquil outdoor grounds. The property has expansive entertaining space that can accommodate approximately 400 guests. The backyard includes a large patio area adorned with fountains and waterfalls. The curvilinear lines of meandering patio bricks are trimmed with flowers and shrubbery in a natural flow. A large sparkling swimming pool adjacent to the dining area is crowned with a romantic pergola draped in greenery. Here, a fireplace sets the mood for entertaining guests al fresco. Across from the pool is a full outdoor kitchen with a wood-burning grill and a gas grill, outdoor sink and built-in ice chest. Thriving trumpet flower bushes trim the property line for privacy, and charming seating areas are scattered about with a lovely gazebo anchoring the grounds. “Our home and its grounds are great for entertaining, and many events have been held here from weddings to ladies luncheons,” shares the owner. Long and narrow, the grassy lawn is perfect for children to run and play while, discreetly tucked behind the landscaping, is a fenced in dog run. There also is a sandy play area in the corner for a kids’ playground or swingset.

Situated in the Monte Malaga section of Palos Verdes Estates, the home is an ideal location for commuters: easy to reach the 110 when driving to Downtown L.A. or Long Beach. It is also a prime location as it is between all the different schools for families with school-age children as well as being in close proximity to local shopping, dining, Trump International Golf Course and Terranea.

The charming warmth of this home coupled with its sensational views and beautiful entertaining areas make it a delightful choice for a growing family looking to retreat from fast-paced life to one that is focused on thriving.

Pacific Union International includes three Los Angeles brokerages under branding expansion

Pacific Union International, the eighth-largest real estate broker in the U.S., rebrands three independently owned home sales brokerages in the Los Angeles market, under expansion. The merger, including John Aaroe Group, Gibson International, and Partners Trust, expands with launches in LA with 900+ real estate professionals and executives. Over the past 12 months, Pacific Union has acquired all three luxury real estate brokerages and are now unified under the Pacific Union International brand. The company has announced that Nick Segal, the former CEO and founder of Partners Trust, will lead as President of Pacific Union L.A., overseeing 20 offices across the greater Los Angeles area.

“Pacific Union’s launch in Los Angeles is a truly historic move that unites L.A.’s most esteemed and highest-producing real estate professionals under one name with best-in-class technology, marketing, data, and research,” Segal says. “This dream team of 900 real estate professionals sharing core values and a commitment to teamwork, trust, and innovation will provide the absolute best client experience possible. And we now all proudly share the same company name, Pacific Union International.”

Pacific Union now has more than 1,700 real estate professionals across 51 offices throughout Northern and Southern California, with a projected sales volume of $18 billion for 2018. The brokerage’s Southern California markets include Beverly Hills, Malibu, Downtown, the Westside, Northeast L.A., and the San Fernando and San Gabriel Valleys. Northern California markets include San Francisco, Marin, Contra Costa, Alameda, Napa, and Sonoma counties, Silicon Valley, and the Lake Tahoe region.

Southern California home prices up 8.6%, an all-time high

In a report released by CoreLogic, Southern California home prices have surged 8.6% in November compared to a year earlier. The report reveals that the housing market shows strong job growth, historically low mortgage rates and a shortage of listings driving a combination of both higher prices and a larger demand. As compared to a year earlier, the all-time high underscores a tight housing market with few properties for sale. November sales were essentially flat, just down 0.1% from a year earlier.

The six-county region’s median home price hit $505,000 last month, a nominal record seen in September and before that, in 2007 just before the housing market collapsed.


Record-Breaking Real Estate Deals in Los Angeles 2017

The City of Angels became the city of nine-figure homes in 2017, with the priciest—in the city and the country—being the listing of the mansion from the 1960s TV-series “The Beverly Hillbillies,” which hit the market in August for $350 million, Mansion Global recently reported.

But while Los Angeles has one of the healthiest high-end property markets in the U.S., prices aren’t all astronomical, according to a third-quarter report released in October by Douglas Elliman. The median sales price for luxury single-family homes, defined as the top 10% of the market, was $9.3 million—unchanged from a year ago, and hundreds of overpriced luxury properties dropped from the market in 2017, leaving inventory at about 60% of what it was last year, the report said.

Properties saw big cuts too. Opus, a Beverly Hills spec home that released an unusual promotional video featuring gold-painted women writhing next to a Lamborghini, dropped out of the $100-million-club in September after a $15 million price cut. It was joined by a 31,000-square-foot mansion in Bel Air. The spec house was first listed in July for $100 million, but after being taken off market, was relisted in November for $90 million.

Naturally, though, some big price tags were turned into big deals this year.

In August, music power couple Jay-Z and Beyonce dropped $88 million in an off-market deal for a spec-built compound in Bel Air, according to multiple reports. Designed by architect Paul McLean, the 30,000-square-feet estate is hidden behind iron gates and comprises six buildings with a total of eight bedrooms and eleven bathrooms.

The transaction just topped the off-market sale of the Malibu home of entertainment mogul David Geffen, who in May, parted with his long-time home for $85 million. The property has five different structures, including a main house of more than 10,000 square feet, guest houses, a pool, hot tub, reflection pond and multiple balconies and terraces looking out over the Pacific.

Though the sale is currently the record holder for any property sold in Malibu, it has competition hot on its heels. In December, Mansion Global reported that the Malibu home belonging to Kurt Rappaport, co-founder and CEO of Beverly Hills-based Westside Estate Agency, is set to sell for $120 million, according to a source with knowledge of the off-market deal, though according to reports it’s not a done deal yet.
