“Tell me an address, and I’ll tell you who owns it. I have my finger on top of everything that’s going on,” says Westside Estate Agency co-founder Kurt Rappaport of his deep knowledge of L.A.’s wealthiest neighborhoods. The son of an entertainment lawyer, Rappaport repped both sides in the third-biggest residential sale in California in August 2020, when Jeffrey Katzenberg sold his Trousdale estate to WhatsApp co-founder Jan Koum for $125 million. “It was the best property in Trousdale and had the best views of L.A.,” he says.
“It had every fundamental. We sold it within the first day pretty much.” A torrid pace of big sales through the rest of the past year included repping Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi in a $47 million Beverly Hills sale; David Geffen in the sale of 1 acre of land for $33.75 million in Beverly Hills; and selling Koum a house in Malibu for $87 million.
Current mega-listings include the Paul Allen estate ($55.5 million) and Ryan Seacrest’s Beverly Hills residence ($74.5 million, originally listed at $85 million). With inventory tight, off-market deals — which Rappaport reels in by “having relationships and knowing what’s out there” — are “a large part of my business. A lot of clients like acquiring something that hasn’t been offered to anyone else. Sometimes if you give somebody the first bite at something great, then you are adding real value and you are a dealmaker, not a real estate agent.”
These realtors are the new force to reckon with in the real estate industry. They are the reason why this industry is evolving at such a great pace. If you are also looking to step into the real estate market for residential or investment purposes, then don't forget to give one of these experts a call.
