    This is where the prince of pop plays!

    Justin Bieber has settled into two swank Beverly Hills condos after selling his Calabasas mansion to Khloe Kardashian and temporarily relocating to a rental in Atlanta.

    Now back on the West Coast and without a massive mansion to call home, 20-year-old Bieber has taken up residence in two condos in a brand new Beverly Hills condo building. Bieber is currently renting both the penthouse unit and a smaller condo directly underneath it, although the two units do not connect. According to TMZ, he needed the second unit for not only for more space for himself, but also his entourage.

    The Canadian crooner, who has been on a bit of an attempted (but failed) “image reboot” as of late, hasn’t won over any of his new neighbors, who have already complained of excessive noise, late-night partying and marijuana smells that seep into the shared hallways.

    After less than a month, Justin’s new neighbors are fed up. TMZ is also reporting that the condo has hired private security from the hours of 6pm and 8am, all to keep Bieber and his entourage in check and keep the peace around the building. Since Bieber’s just renting, the HOA is sending the bill for the security guards directly to the condo’s owners. Ouch.

    Bieber’s paying $16,000 a month for the penthouse unit and $11,000 a month for the 4th floor unit, for a grand total of $27,000 a month.

    Brand new and never lived in, the penthouse unit has a private rooftop deck and jacuzzi, 3 bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms and top-of-the-line details throughout. The smaller unit has an additional 3 bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms.

    If he keeps up his bad boy ways, no doubt Bieber will be on the move again soon.

      Live Next Door to Apple CEO Tim Cook

      4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, 2,065 square feet, close to downtown



      Here’s something you can’t buy at the Apple Store: the pricey Palo Alto condo right next door to Apple CEO Tim Cook.

      Just listed for $2,849,000, the 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom, 2,065 condo is directly adjacent to the modest abode Tim Cook has lived in since 2010.

      A true testament to how small the world of Silicon Valley is, this for-sale condo is owned by Bill Maris, a venture capitalist and managing partner at Google Ventures, Apple’s largest competitor. Maris founded Google Ventures in 2009, and has gone on to make incredibly successful investments in hot tech companies like Nest, Uber and 23andMe.

      Property records show that Maris paid $1.98 million for the home in late 2010, which is about the time Cook purchased the unit next door. According to Gawker, the two tech titans coexisted for two years, until 2012, when Maris reportedly moved closer to Google’s Mountain View campus, but maintained this home as a rental.

      Located at the end of a private driveway, the Cook-adjacent property is super private, but only steps away from restaurants and shops in bustling downtown Palo Alto. The great room is perfect for entertaining and casual living, and the first floor bedroom could also be used as a den or exercise room. Upstairs, the gorgeous master bedroom suite has large closet.

      Cook has deviated from the lifestyle that many of his fellow tech leaders lead. Cook lives relatively modestly, while folks like Elon Musk, Larry Ellison, Mark Zuckerberg and Marissa Mayer all own multiple high-priced properties.

          If your “Motto” is “buy it,” then you’ll be shelling out $4.2 million for the condo and another $3,361.51 a month for maintenance fees.

          Note: The home is listed for $4.2 million Canadian dollars. If you want to bring your US cash, make sure you have $3.98M for the condo and $3,546.86 for the monthly maintenance.

          Chelsea Clinton and her investment banker husband Marc Mezvinsky are trading up in New York City!  The duo recently purchased a $10+ million condo and are now listing their nearly $5 million pad.

          They bought their new place in a secure building on East 26th Street for $10.5 million in March 2013, which led them to list their former home nearby for $4,475,000.   The moving van didn’t have to go far, as the couple moved just a stone’s throw from their former condo. In fact, both buildings are located in the stunning Flatiron District and have views of Madison Square Park.

          According to The Real Deal, this for-sale condo actually belonged exclusively to Chelsea’s husband, who bought it in 2008 for $4 million. The couple had been living there since their $3 million 2010 nuptials until they finally moved on – and up – to their fabulous new $10M pad!

          According to the listing, the full-service, 3 bedroom home at the Grand Madisonhas a well laid out floor plan that is perfectly suited to entertaining and gracious living.” An open chef’s kitchen has top-of-the-line appliances and the large master bedroom has generous closets and a luxurious marble en-suite bath with double sinks and separate steam shower and soaking tub.

          Since their wedding in 2010, the duo have been busily working and building a life in New York. He’s an investment banker, and she works on behalf of her father’s Clinton Global Initiative and sits on the board of IAC Interactive and the School of American Ballet. She also has a contract with NBC to do pieces that “make a difference.”

            Ellen Degeneres and wife Portia de Rossi are keeping their real estate agent busy this summer. The duo just dropped $26 million on a new mansion in Montecito, and today, the real-estate-loving duo are dumping a penthouse apartment in Beverly Hills for $899,000. One peek at the listing photos suggests the penthouse was a home for a family member or personal staff. While lovely, the condo is decidedly different and less fancy than Ellen and Portia’s usual home decor style.

            The corner penthouse in the Somerset building has views of  mountains and the trees from a spacious, light-filled unit. An entry gallery with wood floors opens to living room/dining area with fireplace. The kitchen comes complete with an eating area and laundry room. The unit’s 2 bedrooms are both large, with en suite bathrooms.

            The building is full service and amenities include: doorman, valet parking, security, gym, pool, spa, sauna and club room. Building dues/HOA will cost you $1,186 a-month.

            Any takers?

              Julianne Hough Sells Nashville Condo, Reportedly Moves Into $3M Mansion Bought By Ex Ryan Seacrest

              After her high-profile split from Ryan Seacrest, Julianne Hough reportedly has a new “Safe Haven“: a $3 million mansion purchased by Ryan as a parting gift when their two year relationship came to an end in March. According to our source, Ryan pulled a move similar to his American Idol costar Simon Cowell, who gave his ex-fiance a high dollar mansion in the wake of their split. Details on Hough’s new home are still under wraps, but the “Dancing With The Stars” dancer and budding movie star reportedly decamped to the new gift mansion shortly after moving out of the $37 million-dollar compound she shared with Ryan for the past year. Their former love nest was purchased from Ellen Degeneres and Portia De Rossi in May 2012 and seemed to signal to the world that Seacrest was finally ready to settle down and build a family life with Hough.

              Reports on their breakup cite his hectic schedule and inability to kick his workaholic ways as the main impetus for their split. He must have loved her in a major way though, since he allegedly spent some serious coin on her new bachelorette pad.

              While Hough was mid break-up and likely closing on her new Los Angeles home, she found the time to list and sell her Nashville condo. Located at 900 20th Avenue in the heart of Nashville, Hough paid $649,000 for the 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom, 1,829 square foot condo in 2009. She relocated primarily to Los Angeles in the past couple years, and likely had the property leased out to a tenant. Property records do show that she managed to dance out of the property and make a pretty penny. She sold the condo on January 7, 2013 for $900,000.

                Tennis ace Serena Williams is serving up her luxurious LA condo to a new buyer. According to property records and The Real Estalker, Williams’ Wilshire Boulevard home is in escrow for $1,850,000. By the looks of the listing photos, Williams used the condo as a West Coast pied-à-terre for a couple years when she spent time in the City of Angels. She purchased the soon-to-be-sold condo in September 2002 for $1,275,000. Four years later — after more success and lucrative endorsement deals — she spent $6,612,000 on massive, seven-bedroom mansion in Bel Air. She and sister Venus also share a champion-worthy Florida mansion.

                Whomever is plunking down the dough to take Serena’s small-ish condo off her hands is buying into the luxury Los Angeles building, The Remington. The 15th floor condo is spacious, with two bedrooms, three-and-a-half bathrooms, and a den/office that comes complete with the most amazing city views. Light and bright, the condo has an open floorplan and a direct access elevator. The gourmet kitchen features high-end appliances. And throughout, you’ll find hardwood floors, balconies, walls of windows. The master suite comes with dual marble baths, limestone floors, and walk-in closets, while The Remington — a full-service building — offers a concierge, valet, pool/spa, gym, rec room, wine storage, and additional storage rooms.

                  Buzz Aldrin, half of the famous American astronaut duo that first walked on the moon, has just listed his Los Angeles condominium for $3.3 million.

                  Listed for the first time ever, Aldrin’s highly-coveted southeast corner unit resides in the La Tour, Wilshire Corridor’s finest full-service condo building. The three-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bathroom property has a large open floor plan with floor-to-ceiling walls of glass, offering unobstructed panoramic views of Century City, Beverly Hills, and Los Angeles. Two secondary bedrooms have been reconfigured into a large den with separate office spaces where items from Aldrin’s astronaut past are on full display. The condo has custom built-ins throughout and two large balconies–perfect for entertaining. If closet ‘space’ is your thing, then take a ‘small step’ into the master bedroom’s huge walk-in closet, complete with two large exterior storage rooms.  Beyond the unit itself, Aldrin’s building, the La Tour, provides 24-hour front desk personnel, valet parking, a fitness center, pool, and recreation room.  Guess that’s why the homeowners association fees for this unit are an out-of-this-world $2,949 per month.

                    Three-time Emmy winning actress Edie Falco has listed her modest 4-bedroom, 3-bath New York duplex for $5.5 million, according to our friend The Real Estalker. According to property records, Falco purchased the home in New York’s famous Tribeca neighborhood in July 2004 for $3.8 million.

                    Famously known for her role as Carmela Soprano on HBO’s award winning series ‘The Sopranos,’ Falco has been most recently saving lives as the star of Showtime’s hit drama ‘Nurse Jackie.’ With those two hit roles under her belt, it’s no surprise that Falco is one of only two actresses to receive a  SAG, Golden Globe AND Emmy Award within the same year.

                    For an actress with that much talent comes an extremely busy schedule. That being said, interior design may have taken the backseat, as this 3,000 square foot condo has quite a demur personality with minimal color and design throughout. This property, however, has great potential and offers amazing views off both its terracces on the first and second story.

                    Hardwood floors run up and down the penthouse and 12-foot ceilings surrounded by various sky-high windows allow for a bright and spacious living area. The living room comes complete with a wood-burning fireplace attached to an exposed brick wall, welcoming a very urban, downtown ambiance. The open kitchen is newly renovated and features stainless steel appliances, as well as an island/bar eating area.

                    Deborah Grubman and David Dubin of the Corcoran Group hold the listing.
