David Parnes

Originally from London, England, David Parnes brings English charm to the City of Angels. Co-founder of a premium real estate service company, Bond Street Partners, Parnes and his partner, James Harris, have established themselves as two of the top agents serving the Los Angeles luxury market.

After earning his Bachelor of Arts with Honors in Economics and Politics from the University of Manchester, Parnes began working at a hedge fund before moving on to represent a private portfolio of real estate assets in Europe. While taking breaks from the London fog, Parnes spent his summers in Los Angeles and was drawn to the sunshine, warm and friendly people and vast potential of the city's real estate market. As a result, he made the decision to permanently call L.A. home in 2009. Today, he specializes in high-end residential real estate and investment properties in Beverly Hills, Bel Air, Brentwood, the Hollywood Hills, Malibu, the Pacific Palisades and the greater Los Angeles region.

The partners' "no-nonsense" approach to closing deals, coupled with their extensive network of high-net-worth international and domestic clients, have enabled them to sell approximately $250 million for 2015 & 2016. 2017 was a record-breaking year with over $500 million in sales earning the partners The Agency’s MVP Award in 2017.

Most recently the partners represented the $30 Million sale of 438 N. Faring Road in Holmby Hills and another $30 Million sale at 200 N. Delfern in Holmby Hills, two deals in which they represented both the Buyer and the Seller, two $18 Million development opportunities in Holmby Hills, a $25 Million development opportunity in Bel Air, a newly developed property at 900 Stradella Rd. in Bel Air for $41 Million, which was the highest Bel Air sale recorded in the MLS since December, 2015 and 630 Nimes Road for $56 Million which was the highest recorded sale in Bel Air in the MLS to date in 2018. The partners also represented the third highest sale ever in Malibu for a staggering $69.9 million. David and James represented 3 of the 10 highest sales in Los Angeles in 2017.

Other notable sales by the partners include the sale of a prized property on L.A.'s famous Melrose Place, home to the boutiques of renowned designers such as Oscar De La Renta and Chloé and the famed Hustler store on Sunset Blvd. for $18.5 Million.

Building on this incredible success, this year David and James have expanded their listing inventory to include two spectacular Bel Air listings priced at $44 Million and $38.5 Million plus a newly developed Sunset Strip estate listed for $45 Million. Their current listing portfolio is worth an astonishing $1 Billion and includes some of the City’s most impressive properties. Their exclusive clientele is comprised of countless celebrities, producers, business managers, agents, heads of Fortune 500 companies and numerous high-net worth individuals.

David Parnes has earned many recent accolades including being named in Variety’s Showbiz Real Estate Elite in 2015, 2017 and 2018. The partners were also named on the Wall St. Journal Real Trends list for 2015, 2016 and 2017, were ranked #5 on The Real Deal’s list of top agents for 2017/2018 and were ranked #12 on the Los Angeles Business Journal’s list of Residential Real Estate Agents for 2017.

A recent personal project includes the building and sale of a 4,200 square foot contemporary home in West Hollywood and the purchase of a fixer property in the Bird Streets where he plans to live with his fiancé, Adrian, their two rescue Basset Hounds, Maxi and Bella and Chihuahuas, Apoosh and Freddie. An avid animal lover, David donates regularly to animal charities. David capped off a stellar year with a lavish wedding in the South of France in the summer. He and his wife, Adrian, welcomed their first child, a baby girl named India Rose Parnes in 2018.
