In today’s ultra-competitive real estate market, pocket listings have become all the rage. Earlier this year, The Agency’s Christopher Dyson, in partnership with Mauricio Umansky, James Harris and David Parnes, launched The Pocket Listing Service (ThePLS.com), the first private, national off-market listing forum created exclusively by agents, for agents. ThePLS.com provides a place where agents across the U.S. can consolidate off-market listings in one easy-to-use space and collaborate with fellow members on behalf of their clients. As Curbed recently reported, ThePLS.com has reached close to 2 billion listings and 2,750 members—and counting—a testament to the growing allure of off-market listings.

When London-born agent Gideon Lang-Laddie, a self-proclaimed classic car enthusiast and proud owner of a 1977 Morgan Roadster, asked if we’d like to tag along on a driving tour of L.A.’s prized real estate, we jumped at the opportunity to snag a spot in the passenger’s seat.

Joining Gideon on the joyride was his dear friend Charles Morgan, grandson of the Morgan Motor Company’s founder H.F.S. Morgan. On a sunny fall morning, Gideon and Charles met at The Agency’s Beverly Hills headquarters in their respective rides to caravan to two of our most coveted luxury listings. From the Beverly Hills flats through the neighborhood’s undulating hills—past many an ogling tour bus along the way—the pair arrived at their first stop, 9719 Heather Road.

On the heels of The Agency’s expansion to Calabasas and Sherman Oaks, the Valley agents are blazing a trail over the hill with a slew of new listings and record-breaking sales.

Compound properties, with multiple structures on one site, offer the best of both worlds—a place for family and friends to gather, and the chance for those guests to retreat to the peace and solitude of their own private living quarters. Buyers in Los Angeles are seeking properties that offer innovative ways to live and entertain, often placing more value on acreage over square footage. While in short supply in L.A., compounds afford owners the luxury of space and substance, as well as the chance to customize their lifestyles. 

“The gathering of family and loved ones in a compound setting is a long-lost attribute of an increasingly rare lifestyle, especially here in Los Angeles,” says The Agency’s Craig Knizek, who represents what is perhaps the

From an influx of new shops and restaurants cropping up on Ventura Boulevard to the opening of our own Sherman Oaks office, there’s no denying the Valley is experiencing a renaissance. With record-high prices across L.A., the area is attracting a steady flow of young families, studio execs, and even celebrities drawn to its large lots, small-town charm, and easy access to Hollywood and Downtown L.A.

Debatably the most coveted neighborhood of them all, Studio City is also home to one of The Valley’s—if not L.A.’s—best kept secrets: Fryman Canyon. Surrounded by the hiking trails of Fryman Canyon Park, the lush and secluded neighborhood—home to the likes of Bruno Mars, Miley Cyrus, and George Clooney—offers the privacy and serenity attributed to
