Adrienne Maloof’s Mansion Sells in a Month


With the housing market heating up, selling a home in a month is becoming more feasible. But selling a mansion in a month, especially one priced at $26 million, is quite the feat — even in Beverly Glen.

“Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Adrienne Maloof’s home hit the market in mid-September, and just about 30 days later, the home has secured a buyer, according Los Angeles real estate brokerage The Agency.

But what’s the secret to the quick sale? Elegant staging? Great photos? A reality-TV star name to give the listing a little bit more buzz? Or simply a strategy that works, says Mauricio Umansky, the listing agent for the property.

“A sale like this is exactly what The Agency excels at,” Umansky said. “There are very few properties on the market like this one, as well as a limited number of buyers capable of purchasing a home like this, and we pride ourselves at being able to connect the two.”

Of course, all the high-end amenities don’t hurt, either.

The Richard Landry-designed manse sits in the gated neighborhood of Beverly Park on 2 acres of “beautifully manicured grounds.” Built in 2000, the home has 8 bedrooms and 11 bathrooms, grand living spaces, as well as a wine cellar, tiered movie theater, tennis court, swimming pool and both pool and guest houses.

Maloof and her estranged husband, Paul Nassif, listed the home because the two are going through a bitter divorce. True to reality television, the she-said-he-did has had plenty of media coverage.
