Rodeo Realty's Josh Flagg and Ben Bacal among Variety's 'Showbiz Real Estate Elite 2018'

Variety’s annual ‘Showbiz Real Estate Elite 2018’ has been announced! Every year the magazine names some of the entertainment industry’s go-to agents, not just in Hollywood, but also on the East Coast, in Miami and event in Europe, Latin America and Asia.

This year, two Rodeo Realty agents made the elite list: Josh Flagg and Ben Bacal.

“Their clients come from all over the glove,” said Variety. “Not surprisingly, however, these high-flying negotiators mostly work the properties in the Beverly Hills and Bel-Air hot zone.”

As a star of Bravo’s popular show “Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles, ” there’s no doubt that Josh Flagg is one of the entertainment industry’s go-to agents.

His recent Beverly Hills sales range in the $10 million-$16 million range. Some of his current listings mentioned by Variety include 815 N. Whittier Dr. for $11.49 million and 811 Hillcrest for $8.49 million. He also recently closed escrow on $20 million property.

“The market is “very, very strong,” said Josh to Variety. “High-end properties will continue to stay steady. I don’t see a massive increase in prices, but I also don’t see a tremendous potential of property value going down.”

Significant sales mentioned for Ben Bacal: 1006 Lexington Dr. for $26.75 million, 1218 Benedict Canyon for $11.995 million and 1895 Rising Glen Road for $15.95 million. His current listings included 830 Birchwood Dr. at $15.9 million and 6250 Hollywood Blvd. at $9.75 million.

“The high-end market is on fire in L.A,” said Ben to Variety. “Almost everything that has class and style is trading. L.A. isn’t built vertically, there is limited land and some of the most incredible luxury estates are being born here every month. I think L.A. is extremely undervalued.”

Congratulations to both agents for making Variety’s Showbiz Real Estate Elite 2018!

Los Angeles Times mentions three Rodeo Realty agents for selling most expensive homes between March 6 – 19


In the past two weeks, three Rodeo Realty agents sold two of the most expensive homes in the Greater Los Angeles area.

Making real estate news in the Los Angeles Times is Peter Maurice and Tregg Rustad. The two agents sold a $9 million listing that belonged to Frederick Huntsberry, the chief operating officer of Paramount Pictures. According to the newspaper, the buyer was Francesco Aquilini, Canadian billionaire and owner of the Vancouver Canucks hockey franchise.

The agents listed the 4,507-square-foot home in February and closed sale in about a month. According to the LA Times, Huntsberry purchased the home six years ago for $3.84 million—less than half the price it was sold for.

The renovated midcentury home in Beverly Hills is said to have four bedrooms, four bathrooms, terrazzo floors, a dramatic according-style ceiling and walls of floor-to-ceiling glass that look out to a half-moon-shaped swimming pool.

Among the top residential real estate sales is also a Beverly Hills home that was sold for $7.5 million by Josh Flagg. According to the LA Times, the home was destined for the wrecking ball.

Flagg tells the newspaper the amount eclipsed the previous high-water mark for the area by $2 million. He represented both the buyer and the seller in the sale.

West Hollywood Lifestyle hits the road with Josh Flagg

Rodeo Realty’s Josh Flagg is covering the 2016 spring issue of West Hollywood Lifestyle magazine.

Writer Lindzi Scharf met with the star of Bravo’s Million Dollar Listing to discuss real estate. She mentions meeting Flagg outside the Four Seasons Hotel off Doheny, where he currently resides.

“I just can’t seem to stay in a house,” Flagg tells Scharf. “I keep buying houses, and people keep offering me more money for them — right after I buy them.”

The two pull out of the hotel’s driveway in a  Rolls-Royce 1960 Silver Cloud Convertible.

“My grandmother used to drive Rolls-Royces, and I guess that’s what got me into them,” Flagg tells Scharf. “New cars, you buy them, and they go down in value the minute you take them off the lot. An old classic car only goes up — granted, you’ve probably spent more money just maintaining the car over the time, but at the end of the day, these cars are incredible investments.”

Flagg hits the road and starts talking cars — the article states he reportedly owns a fleet of Rolls-Royces.

“I’d rather not say how many, but quite a few,” said Flagg.
