Located in the heart of Hancock Park at 156 North Larchmont Boulevard, the innovative space is the vision of Bret Parsons, a top-producing real estate professional, lecturer, and author of noted architecture books. The extraordinarily designed environment, housed in the 1924 Keystone Building, will be home to a team of real estate professionals who embrace marketing a wide array of properties including architecturally significant estates across Greater Wilshire/Hancock Park and beyond.

“I am beyond thrilled to open the first-of-its-kind community- and architecture-centric real estate office in Los Angeles,”  Associate Manager and Executive Director, Architectural Division, Bret Parsons says. “Real estate icon John Aaroe and I originally conceived the concept a few years ago as a way to leverage our architectural knowledge and relationships as well as to create a workplace environment that is less office and more community-minded with a focus on architecture in order to better serve buyers and sellers in the area.”

“I immediately green-lighted this idea when Bret presented to me late last year,” Mark A. McLaughlin says. “Innovation is about filling a void in the marketplace and Bret’s vision for our Hancock Park locale sets a new bar for a real estate office.”
