Hollywood’s top 35 luxury real estate agents, revealed

It takes a highly qualified real estate agent to perform at the level that some of the world’s wealthiest celebrities demand. On top of the big personalities and high expectations to deliver, agents in Hollywood today have a lot to deal with. There’s the high interest rates that are dissuading sellers from moving; the Hollywood writers’ strike, which only recently ended after months and impacted a huge swath of potential buyers; and the ULA or “mansion” tax enacted this spring, which put a serious curb on transactions over $5 million. “We had a 13-year run of a robust market and are experiencing a necessary cycle change,” Rayni Williams of The Beverly Hills Estates told The Hollywood Reporter regarding the 36 percent decline in luxury transactions in the second quarter of 2023. Yet even with those obstacles, agents have continued to broker remarkable deals, like Kurt Rappaport of Westside Estate Agency’s deft handling of both sides of Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s $200 million purchase of an estate in Malibu in May. “At the end of the day,” Josh Altman of Douglas Elliman said, “a trophy is a trophy, and if people want it, they are going to buy it.” What follows is The Hollywood Reporter’s list of the top 35 real estate agents serving Hollywood’s celebrities today.

The 35 Go-To L.A. Real Estate Brokers for Beyoncé, J. Lo and Other Hollywood Heavyweights

“We had a 13-year run of a robust market and are experiencing a necessary cycle change,” says Rayni Williams of The Beverly Hills Estates, reflecting on the 36 percent drop in luxury home sales that hit L.A. in the second quarter. Meanwhile, the median price of a home in Los Angeles hovered at $963,000, down 1 percent from the previous year. The decline can be attributed to a combination of high interest rates, the dual strikes that hit Hollywood and the new ULA mansion tax, in which home sellers in the city of Los Angeles must pay at least a 4 percent transfer on any sales above $5 million. “Sellers are hesitant to sell given these barriers,” says AKG’s Aaron Kirman. Despite the challenges, L.A.’s agents (chosen based on total sales volume, Hollywood clients and media visibility) continued to smash records, led by the most expensive sale in California history — Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s $200 million purchase of an estate in Malibu in which Westside Estate Agency’s Kurt Rappaport repped both sides of the deal. “At the end of the day,” says Douglas Elliman’s Josh Altman, “a trophy is a trophy, and if people want it, they are going to buy it.” (Client names are found via public records.)

Alex Pall of The Chainsmokers buys Mischa Barton’s former home in Beverly Hills for $8.8 million

Alex Pall, best known as half of the American electronic DJ and production pair The Chainsmokers, has acquired a new property. The EDM pop artist who works closely with musical partner Drew Taggart is responsible for chart-topping hits including #Selfie, Closer, and Roses. Now he has added another gem to his impressive real estate portfolio: an Italian-inspired villa in one of Hollywood’s most exclusive neighborhoods, and one of the world's best homes. The California home, known as the Bowmont Estate, was formerly owned by the British actress Mischa Barton who starred in the cult classic The O.C. and held roles in beloved films like Notting Hill. Pall’s new estate was originally listed by Aaron Kirman Group | Christie's International Real Estate, a brokerage firm famous for its focus on luxury and exclusive properties. Robb Report Real Estate has shared photos, and the Bowmont estate certainly fits this bill. The home is simultaneously rustic Mediterranean and glamorous, featuring beautifully stained dark wood exposed beams on white matte walls and ceilings. Intricate wrought iron details (including railings, chandeliers, and doorways) add a touch of antique flair. Bowmont estate’s flooring alternates between high-quality hardwood floors and Italian-style terra cotta tile. Large windows throughout the house fill the home with natural light which is enhanced by the romantic greenery in the home’s California-style garden. The Chainsmoker’s new home is equipped with four bedrooms and nine bathrooms. This Beverly Hills estate also includes two guest houses, each of which has its own bedroom. The primary bedroom suite is stunning and no detail has been spared. It includes a romantic fireplace, a cozy balcony, and two closets for the DJ to store all of his clothes. His new primary bathroom is another selling feature, with two steam showers and a large soaking tub. A covered loggia in the backyard offers the perfect place to entertain among climbing vines and vibrant bougainvillea. https:https://www.homesandgardens.com/celebrity-style/mischa-bartons-former-home-in-beverly-hills

Mischa Barton’s Former Beverly Hills Estate Sells to The Chainsmokers’ Alex Pall for $8.8 Million

After spending a little more than two months on the market for just under $10 million, this posh Italian-inspired villa high above Beverly Hills has officially traded hands for $8.8 million. Records show the discount-minded buyer is musician Alex Pall, who is probably best known as one-half of the Grammy-winning DJ duo The Chainsmokers. Last sold in summer 2021 for just under $9.2 million, the three-building compound is probably best known as the one-time residence of British-born actress Mischa Barton, who paid $6.4 million for the place back in 2005 when she was starring as Marissa Cooper on Fox’s hit TV show The O.C. She went on to list the lavish abode for $8.7 million some five years later, after falling behind on her mortgage payments, before finally managing to unload it in 2016 for a smidge over $7 million to an entity linked to Agoura Hills-based investment firm Strategic Acquisitions Inc. Tucked away behind walls and gates, on a 1.2-acre parcel sited in the Beverly Hills Post Office area, the property was completed in 2003. Known as the Bowmont estate, the stucco and terra-cotta-roof structure includes a main house and two guesthouses—for a total of six bedrooms and nine baths in over 10,000 square feet of living space packed with glitzy amenities like a game room, wine cellar, gym and movie theater. The main house is introduced via a double-height foyer displaying a curving wrought-iron staircase, which flows to formal living and dining rooms, an office space, and a gourmet kitchen decked out with a marble-topped eat-in island, top-tier stainless appliances and a breakfast nook. Upstairs, a sumptuous master retreat is accessible via double doors, and comes complete with a fireplace, balcony, dual closets, and a bath sporting a soaking tub and pair of steam showers. Not to be overlooked are the picturesque grounds, which are laced with greenery and bougainvillea, and spotlighted by a lap pool and covered loggia. There’s also a detached garage for three vehicles, plus a motorcourt equipped with a handy car turntable. In addition to his new Beverly Hills home, Pall also maintains several houses throughout the Los Angeles area, including a 1930s bungalow in the Hollywood Hills that he bought in 2013 for $2.7 million and then remodeled. As for Barton, she’s currently set to guest star in an Amazon Freevee reboot of the Australian drama Neighbours. The listing was held by Aaron Kirman, Cindy Ambuehl and Daniel Milstein of AKG | Christie’s International Real Estate; James Harris and David Parnes of The Agency repped Pall. https://robbreport.com/shelter/celebrity-homes/alex-pall-mischa-barton-house-beverly-hills-1234880978/
