We’re Realtors; we help our clients buy and sell homes. Our expertise is in architectural properties, which can range from early-California adobe to well-crafted ‘20s and ‘30s design and from mid-century modern architecture to the New Blood design of the current era. While our qualifications lend themselves to our specialty, we’re a full-service firm committed to helping buyers and sellers find value at every price point . Whether a $1,500 lease or a $10,000,000 listing, we are ready to assist our clients with our vast knowledge of the industry and decades of experience, to make the process smooth, professional, and stress-free. We assist our clients in maximizing the potential benefit to be gained from a design-oriented lifestyle – our fundamental goal is to raise awareness of the value of good design. If you inspect our logo you will see “Properties with Design integrity” is a part of it, this is something we focus on. While we will not turn away helping our clients ensuring we find the perfect property for them, no matter what it may be, our website is an exclusive conglomeration of properties that are masterful pieces of art, and of course, have design integrity.
We feature properties our clients currently have listed for sale, along with unique properties listed by other Realtors. When we represent a distinctive property, we typically commission an architectural photographer to capture the work on film and frequently utilize archival images by the masterful practitioners of the time. We understand that our Client’s homes may be of an historical nature or are a work of art designed by prestigious Architects and therefore command premium prices. We incorporate the use of multiple, proven marketing strategies and approach each property in a way that is as unique as the properties themselves that we represent. We do our absolute best to get you, our Client that magic number. We bring our own expertise to describe spatial experiences with the written word. The site also serves as a blog or web-based journal where we record our observations of the real estate market and capture other agents’ listings that have caught our eye for their design merit. We also make our site available to brokers outside the local area, bringing exceptional properties to the attention of a wider design-oriented audience at no additional cost to their clients.
The Gallery is devoted to the non-commercial aspect of what we do: promoting Los Angeles & Austin Architects’ work as the art that it is. In most cases, the work featured here is not for sale, but it is representative of architects and designers we admire. Design professionals find this venue advantageous, as do our real estate clients. For designers, it’s free advertising and opportunity to showcase work for the thousands of visitors to our site. For our clients, the forum is a vehicle for helping select designers for new projects. Frequently in the course of helping our clients buy and sell homes, we recommend local architects, contractors, and subcontractors.
