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.
From Sherman Oaks to Bel Air, we got an inside glimpse of ThePLS.com database and rounded up a few of The Agency’s best pocket listings across L.A.—just in time to add to your holiday wish list.
