Adrienne Tourtelot Gives Kitchen Reno Advice to Mansion Global

Rodeo Realty’s Adrienne Tourtelot speaks about renovating your kitchen before it hit the market to Mansion Global.

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (August 16, 2019)-Earlier this month, Adrienne Tourtelot chatted with Mansion Global about useful advice homeowners thinking to sell should know. When it comes to renovating their kitchen pre-sale, there are a number of factors that come into play. This is why the editors at Mansion Global sought out top agents like Adrienne for this informative feature.

Adrienne along with a select few other agents shared their thoughts on the do or don’t of kitchen remodeling. What was a stand out statement they could all agree on is that remodeling offers the highest recoup but should not be a major overhaul.

“Kitchens and baths offer the highest recouping value, at least in the luxury space out here in Los Angeles,” Adrienne said. Stating that often times sellers will opt for a full redo that buyers often end up redoing themselves. The way to avoid this is a focus on space rather than style. “Buyers are looking for things like open concept, so removing a non-load bearing wall from the kitchen and dining space can offer huge value and low cost.”

The full article provided a range of advice and ideas for those looking to conquer the kitchen renovation feat. It is clear when it comes to selling your home, taking advice from experts like Adrienne offers the largest return. Much like a thoughtfully redone kitchen.

About Josh Flagg
Josh Flagg likes setting records. Within the first four years of his career, Josh participated in four record sales, three of which are in our own city of Beverly Hills.
Josh recently participated in the highest sale in the history of Brentwood Park. He also participated in the highest priced sales on Foothill Road, Monovale Drive and Roxbury Drive.
Josh is also one of the stars of Bravo TVs Million Dollar Listing, returning for its seventh season this year.
He pampers his clients… said one local Realtor, In a way I have never seen before and I’ve been in the business for 25 years. I’ve seen Josh send chauffeured cars to his clients’ homes and send his clients up in helicopters to view properties. The best thing I have seen Josh do, though, was wrap an entire house in a big red bow before delivering the keys to the new owners. He is very creative, and that is why he is so successful. In Josh’s mind, there are no limitations.
Flagg does do more than sell real estate though. He also is a world traveler, having been to more than 50 countries. If you ever want to know where to stay in a particular city, just ask him.
He will not only give you a few choices, but he will tell you which particular rooms to request!
My funniest experience so far was when I fell into the pool of a client’s house in the middle of a showing, clothes, jewelry and all! Well I couldn’t let that slow me down, so I put on the owners robe, threw on some slippers and continued the showing. The buyers sent me a pair of swim-trunks when we closed escrow.
