Leibovitch, Syd — Rodeo Realty Inc.
THE LATEST: Leibovitch founded Rodeo Realty Inc. more than 30 years ago. The Beverly Hills-based company has since grown to include more than 1,200 licensed agents and brokers, and 12 offices in L.A. and Ventura counties. In 2019, Rodeo Realty closed more than 5,000 transactions totaling roughly $5 billion in sales.
BACKGROUND: Leibovitch received his real estate license while still a senior at UCLA; he started during his winter break, selling three homes in his first two weeks. The decision not only led him to withdraw from the UCLA track team to focus on selling real estate but also prompted him to skip law school. In 1986, at the age of 25, he started what became Rodeo Realty. Within one year, the company grew to nearly 100 realtors, some of whom are still there. It remains one of the largest single-owner residential real estate companies in California.
