UPDATED April 18, 1:23 p.m.: There’s been a lot of chatter about housing prices nearing the edge of a cliff, a bubble about to burst, an impending market crash. But — perhaps unsurprisingly — that’s not how the luxury brokers in Los Angeles see it.
Yes, the market is leveling a bit. Sure, the fourth quarter of 2018 slowed to a crawl. No, sellers can’t automatically receive the astronomical asking prices of a few years ago. But brokers said that’s more a reflection of prices stabilizing and buyers demanding value than it is of an overall market decline.
To get a look at the residential playing field in Los Angeles County, The Real Deal ranked the highest-performing luxury brokers between March 1, 2018, and Feb. 28, 2019. TRD analyzed single-family home sales of $4 million and higher to identify the 20 top-producing agents. Agents were credited with both listing and buying sides, including deals for which they were the co-broker. An agent who represented both parties received full credit for each side. Off-market sales were included when brokers provided evidence of a commission received for the transaction.
