A Wish Granted: Bobby Karami’s Clients Receive Grant Checks towards New Home

CAR and SRAR continue dedicated efforts towards affordable housing.

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (May 17, 2019)- This past April, Bobby Karami of Rodeo Realty Calabasas helped his most recent buyers secure their dream home. How was this accomplished you might ask?

Through the CAR and SRAR Grant Fund. Karami applied for the grant on behalf of his buyers and both in turn received a check for $2,000 towards their HOA dues.

He went on to share with us that additional details of the overall process. Stating “They offered this grant for my buyers who bought after February and worked with a realtor”.

In the Golden State, the primary sources of home funding include downpayment loans and grants, mortgage credit certificates, sleeping seconds and bond-rate financing, In addition, many local, state and national housing assistance agencies offer programs to help first-time and low-income homebuyers obtain affordable housing.

Federal and state governments, local communities, and non-profit organizations offer homeownership assistance in the form of grants or gifts. These gifts don’t have to be repaid as long as borrowers meet the individual program’s requirements.

Southland Regional Association of Realtors®, in partnership with the California Association of Realtors® Housing Affordability Fund, is providing grants to qualified first-time home buyers up to six month of HOA dues, not to exceed $2000. Applicants must meet certain requirements, including income limitations

In addition to these grants on November, 2002, CALIFORNIA REALTORS® unveiled the Housing Affordability Fund, a non-profit 501(c)(3) dedicated to addressing California’s growing housing affordability crisis. In the midst of skyrocketing housing costs, REALTORS® were bearing witness to more working families getting pushed away from the American dream of homeownership. The Housing Affordability Fund was established to provide more options for first time homebuyers’ entry into homeownership.

With numerous resources for first time homebuyers, finding your dream home is even more seamless with dedicated agents like Bobby Karami.

Josh Flagg receives Ambassador Award

The Bravo star and Rodeo Realty Top Producer receives recognition for his philanthropic work.

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif (May 9, 2019)-Mr. Flagg is at it again. Not with his vloggs (although they are worth the watch as a weekly treat), but as an impressive community member. A born and raised Angeleno, Josh Flagg has always made it a point to give back to his community. It should therefor come as no surprise that earlier in the year he was presented with the Ambassador Award by the Guardians of Los Angeles Jewish Home at their 80th celebration.

The mission of the Guardians is to provide financial support for seniors and needy members of the Jewish community served by the Los Angeles Jewish Home, through residential and community-based programs. The organization was founded in 1938 by a handful of volunteers.

The event, dubbed “1938: A Comedy Night for the Ages,” drew more than 650 attendees and raised over $630,000, said Jessi Cazary, manager of the Guardians.

Josh currently serves on the ‘Guardians’ executive board. Along with his contributions to the ‘Guardians’ Josh also sits on the Board of Governors for Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.

Josh and his husband, Bobby Boyd, also a top-producing Rodeo Realty agent, founded The Josh Flagg and Bobby Boyd Family Foundation to continue support of many different causes especially locally in Los Angeles.

It is through their ongoing philanthropic endeavors and presence as LA residents and top-producing agents that their impact can be seen throughout and even beyond Los Angeles.
In Josh’s own words, “My grandparents and parents instilled in me at a very young age that giving back to the community is the most important thing you can do if you’re privileged enough to do that, not only financially, but privileged as a human being that you would want to help other people with your time.”
About Josh Flagg:
Josh Flagg is one of America’s most successful and sought after luxury real estate agents, having completed more than two billion dollars in residential real estate sales in the past 13 years. As of 2015, Flagg has become the number two volume agent in Los Angeles and the number three agent in sales in California.
His record sales and unrelenting work ethic have Josh currently recognized by The Wall Street Journal as one of the top-ranked agents in California and nationally by sales volume and as a top 25 real estate agent by The Hollywood Reporter. He has been the agent for many of Hollywood’s biggest names including Adam Levine, Steve Aoki, Shonda Rhymes, and Chicago’s Robert Lamm to name a few. In 2012 Josh earned the distinction of being named a Forbes’ 30 under 30.

Josh is the star of Bravo’s hit show Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles now in its tenth Season and he has appeared on the show since its debut season. Josh also regularly appears as a real estate expert on various Fox Business shows, CNBC’s Squawk Box, NBC’s Today Show, E!, CBS The Insider, Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live, ABC’s Good Morning America, as well as in the pages of The Wall Street Journal, Los Angeles Times, Forbes Magazine, and Variety among others.
About The Guardians of Los Angeles Jewish Home:
The mission of The Guardians of the Los Angeles Jewish Home is to provide financial support for elderly and needy members of the Los Angeles Jewish community who are served by the Los Angeles Jewish Home, through residential and community-based programs.

On May 16, 1938 a group of Angelenos gathered to form what is now known as The Guardians of the Los Angeles Jewish Home. We are the largest support group of its kind in the United States and are primarily a volunteer-driven organization.

Rodeo Realty Ranks High on Real Trends The 500 List for 2018

Pulling in top rankings for the year, Rodeo Realty continues to emerge as a top producer in real estate.

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (April 24, 2019)- This week REAL Trends released their highly anticipated “The 500 Residential Real Estate” list for 2018. Rodeo Realty held it’s place in some of the top rankings with the #17 spot for Average Sales Price and the #27 spot in both the Billionaires’ Club and the largest brokerages by volume.

Aptly titled “The 500”, the list is comprised of the leaders in residential real estate across the United States. The accolades are a true accomplishment during what was considered one of the tougher real estate quarters heading into the new year. With a total sales volume of $4,908,093,531 in 2018, Rodeo Realty showcased an impressive year-end average out of thousands of other competing brokerages.

“A record 1,757 firms qualified this year. The results-turned in by the firms on this year’s REAL Trends 500-showed that the nation’s leading realty firms outperformed the market, proving that size and leadership do matter.”

Rodeo Realty has received numerous awards through the years as a leader in residential real estate for Southern California. Being the largest single owned brokerage, company President and CEO Syd Leibovitch takes pride in each accolade received.

The REAL Trends 500, now in its 32nd year, remains the undisputed leader in ranking the performance of residential real estate firms. Due to the requirement of independent verification, the REAL Trends 500 is the trusted source for information about the performance of these firms.

These transactions represent over one-third of all new and resale transactions completed by brokers during the year. The 500-ranked brokers closed nearly 3.3 million home transactions with a value of nearly $1.2 trillion during 2018, up from $1.1 trillion in the calendar year 2017.

The 500 top firms by sides and volume will be published in REAL Trends’ acclaimed magazine. The magazine will also rank the Top Affiliated Firms, the Largest Independents, the Top Movers by Count and Percent, the Billionaires’ Club, the Up-and-Comers (firms that did not qualify for the 500 yet still closed 500 or more sides for the year), and other categories based on their analysis.

This year’s survey represents the most comprehensive collection of data assembled on the leaders of the residential brokerage industry. Numbers are documented by outside accounting firms and/or MLS reports.

“For several years, the REAL Trends 500 has gained market share,” says Steve Murray, president of REAL Trends. “In 2019, the REAL Trends 500 did it again—up 2.7 percent in 2018 against a national existing home sales factor which was down 3 to 4 percent. ”
