    Reality TV star and Kardashian step-brother Brody Jenner has just dropped $1,895,000 on a quaint and quiet Malibu hideaway.

    According to property records, Bruce Jenner‘s son closed on the 3 bedrooms, 3 bathroom, 1,517 square foot home on October 11, 2013.

    With his new Malibu digs, Brody is now neighbors with his brother Brandon and his wife Leah, who recently dropped $1.455 million on a rundown Malibu teardown that they will likely rebuild into their dream home. Their dad isn’t that far away either! After secretly splitting from Kardashian Momager and matriarch Kris Jenner earlier this year, Brody’s dad Bruce Jenner also became a Malibu resident when he rented a beachfront Malibu home for $14,500 a month after moving out of the Kardashian compound in Calabasas.

    Brody’s new Malibu home is a rare gem and came onto the market for the very first time this summer. Very private, the 4+ acre home also has a guest house and is set among the oaks and on a running creek. The existing home is an updated rustic cottage with hardwood floors, wood burning fireplaces, ocean view and plenty of usable land to potentially expand the home. In a unique Malibu location, Jenner’s new property has land and plenty of room for horses, but is just seconds to the beach.

      Kourtney Kardashian and her longtime boyfriend Scott Disick are looking to trade up!

      After having two kids together and expressing the desire to have more, the happily unmarried duo are house hunting for bigger digs in Southern California.

      According to TMZ, Kourtney and Scott spent considerable time touring this property in Hidden Hills, CA, just a few short miles away from Kardashian HQ, aka Kris and Bruce Jenner’s house in Calabasas, CA.

      The family of four is currently living in a gorgeous Craftsman-style 4-bedroom, 5-bathroom, 5,100 square foot home in Calabasas.  Perhaps it’s just not enough house for the notoriously over-the-top Kardashians, who love the biggest and best of everything.

      Kourtney and Scott have been spotted looking at this incredible potential upgrade – a 7,500 square feet, 6 bedroom, 8 bathroom “Hampton’s Style” house in a primo section of Hidden Hills.

      On a 1.79 acre lot, the private home’s highlights include a gorgeous gourmet kitchen, a two-story great room, expansive dining room/library with fireplace, a music room that opens to a cozy courtyard with fountain, a romantic master suite with his & her master baths, a steam shower, heated spa tub and heated floors.

      The sprawling grounds have plenty of room for kids Mason and Penelope to play, and include a tennis court, soccer lawn, outdoor living room with gym, full kitchen, outdoor kitchen with wood burning pizza oven and bbq, fireplace, covered patio with heated floors and drop down screens, pool/spa with slide, gazebo, fire-pit and outdoor music system.

      Marc & Rory Shevin of Berkshire Hathaway HomeService are the listing agents waiting for Kourtney and Scott to make an offer.

       

        Luxe Agent: Ben Moss of The Campins Company

        Posted by Cristin  |  September 3, 2013  |  9:46 am  |  Tags: , , , ,

        Luxe Agent Ben Moss

        Miami, FL

        Ben Moss currently beams into our living rooms as the star of the Style Network’s “Hot Listings Miami,” but before he was a TV star, he was a very successful and accomplished real estate agent. With years of experience under his belt, Ben has been selling incredible estates in South Florida and beyond. Let’s go behind the scenes and learn a but more about Ben.

        How did you get your start in real estate?  

        I got into residential real estate brokerage by mistake.  I was a fairly successful office leasing broker by my mid-20’s.  My senior partner and I oversaw a portfolio of institutional office buildings in excess of 2.5 MM square feet in South Florida.  My girlfriend at the time/first wife/ex-wife (and current business partner) had been on the first season of The Apprentice.  I suggested to her that she should start her own real estate brokerage and brand it herself.  I would help her on nights and weekends.  This was 2004 and the residential market was really ramping up.  She got completely swamped and I felt responsible for it, so I had to make a very tough decision and decided to leave commercial real estate and try to help run the new company.  At first I was like a fish out of water.  I didn’t even know how to properly write up a sales contract, but I figured it out and then started to really enjoy the residential brokerage business.

        What sale or career milestone are you most proud of? 

        Before I even thought about a career in real estate, I flipped a house my sophomore year in college.  I had attended a 3-day real estate investment seminar and I went out looking for a deal.  I found it, made it happen and realized that real estate investing was  a very cool thing!  At closing though, the guy I flipped it to had flipped it to the end buyer and made about 15 times as much as I did.  I learned a lot on that first transaction, but still managed to make some money on it.  To seal the deal with the seller I took her to a fancy bar in Miami so we could sit down and sign the contract.  The whole time I  was hoping that the waiter would not ask me for an ID since I was only 18.  That will always be my favorite deal because it was one of the wildest and it was my first.

        What is your dream home location?

        I love Miami and where I live in Miami (which is the city of South Miami) because I can walk to all the amenities like Whole Foods, shops and restaurants. I’m also about 5 minutes away from a great dog park that I try to take my dogs to every day.  However, I’d love to own a house in Boulder, Colorado in the near future.  I love the idea of being able to walk out of my house in Boulder and go for a hike up the Flat Irons.  My goal is to buy a house there by the age of 40.

        What kind of car do you drive? 

        I drive a silver 2012 Audi A7.  I love the car and I’ve had it now for just over 2 years. It’s a great real estate car because I can drive clients around in it, yet it’s sleek and sporty and I think it has a great body.  Having said that I’m really not much of a car enthusiast, so I’m sure I’ll be driving this car for as long as I can.

        iPhone, Android or BlackBerry? 

        iPhone

        What site/app do you check first when you wake up? 

        I’m getting into currency trading, so that’s usually the first thing I do when I turn on my computer.  However, when I first wake up the first thing I do most mornings is meditate, then eat breakfast while tuning in to CNBC’s Squawk Box.

        What was the last book you read? 

        Raw Power! by Stephen Arlin.   I’m a health enthusiast and so I’m trying to adopt more of a raw foods lifestyle, but I have a long ways to go.  I’m usually reading 2-3 books at one time though.

        Name your favorite guilty pleasure

        Craft beer and brownies (not together).  I am lucky enough to live close to my parents, and so we get together every Sunday for dinner.  I usually eat 2-3 of my mom’s brownies every Sunday.  It’ s not a Sunday night dinner without mom’s brownies.

        What’s one thing someone would never guess just by looking at you? 

        Probably that Spanish was my first language.  I grew up in Panama (my dad was US Ambassador) so I didn’t learn English until I was 5.

        If you weren’t selling real estate, what else could you see yourself  doing? 

        I’d definitely be working for myself in some capacity, probably as an entrepreneur.  I have to think it would be something in the fitness or health industry.   Either that, or I would have gone back into commercial office leasing, which is a great career.

        What’s your “claim to fame?” 

        I’m on a reality  show right now on Style network called Hot Listings Miami.

        If you could switch places with anyone in the world, who would it be and why? 

        I’m a huge music buff, and I think being Dave Matthews for a day, a week or a lifetime would be a sweet deal.  He’s a creative genius and has managed to have a pretty successful band for over 20 years now.

          ‘Real Housewives’ Stars Melissa and Joe Gorga Sell New Jersey Mansion for $3.8 Million

          Melissa and Joe Gorga are going to have to find a new place to get “Real.”

          The Real Housewives of New Jersey stars have sold their 6 bedroom, 7 bathroom, 13,500 square foot Montville, New Jersey mansion for the full asking price of $3.8 million.

          US Weekly broke the news that the married duo and their three kids are leaving the town of Montville, NJ and heading back to Franklin Lakes, NJ because it’s closer to Joe’s work. They have purchased a piece of land for an unknown sum and plan to rent another home until the new dream home is complete.

          In last season’s “Real Housewives of New Jersey” reunion, a tearful Melissa admitted that she and Joe were selling their Montville home to prevent their children from having to go to school with the daughters of then arch-enemy, sister-in-law Teresa Guidice. The feuding family members have since made amends, and with the upcoming move to Franklin Lakes, the Gorga family will be even closer to their in-laws.

          When this home hit the market in May 2012 with an asking price of $3.8 million, it wasn’t the Gorga’s first attempt at a sale. In 2010, before they first appeared on the reality show (and shortly after completing construction of the home), they listed it for an optimistic $4,100,000.

            Kristin Cavallari and her new husband Jay Cutler are high rolling renters in Illinois. The duo are renting a 8,200 square foot home in Winnetka, IL, a Chicago suburb close to Jay’s day job as the star quarterback of the Chicago Bears.

            The reality TV starlet, her first-string QB hubby and their adorable baby Camden signed the lease on the beautiful home in January 2013, just two months after the home came onto the rental market with a $10,000 a month price tag.

            The beautiful home sits on an almost 3/4 acre lot in a ritzy Winnetka neighborhood. Inside, a stunning gourmet eat-in kitchen has Carrara marble counters, top-of-the-line appliances and an adjoining room to relax in front of a blazing fireplace. Kristin loves the kitchen so much, she posed in it for a recent issue of People Magazine,

            The rest of the gorgeous rental features a wood paneled library, a beautiful master bedroom suite and a full finished basement – perfect for Camden to play in during those harsh Chicago winters.

            Cutler has just one season remaining on his contract with the Bears, so renting makes sense for the family. Prior to marrying Cavallari, Cutler had been renting a three-bedroom, 2,050-square-foot condo unit on Chicago’s Near North Side for $6,500 a month.

              If you’ve been “Keeping Up With The Kardashians,” you know former Olympian Bruce Jenner has gotten himself a crash pad in Malibu to put some space between himself and his wife, Kardashian “momager” Kris Jenner. Kris and Bruce’s marriage has been rumored to be on the rocks for some time now, and the rumors picked up steam when Bruce went out and leased a Malibu beach home so he could have a place to get some peace and quiet away from Kris and the madness that is the Kardashian/Jenner house in Calabasas.

              “You can go get a man-cave,” Kris told Bruce when the reality TV show cameras were rolling. “You…can go find a little getaway that you can go relax at.”

              “At first I thought getting my own place, that’s absolutely crazy,” Bruce told the cameras, “Now I’m thinking about it, you know, it might not be a bad idea.”

              After a short hunt for the right place, Bruce is now paying $14,500 a month for a four bedroom Broad Beach Bluff home with stairs that drop right down onto the famous sands of Malibu. The home has soaring ceilings and an open floor plan that’s the perfect environment for living and entertaining – or just getting some peace and quiet. Like most Malibu homes, this particular pad has sweeping ocean views and expansive patios for sunbathing and hanging out.

              While it’s supposed to be his private getaway. Bruce doesn’t have the place all to himself, all the time. His whole family spent the 4th of July holiday enjoying the house, and daughters Kylie and Kendall Jenner even learned to surf!

              The home was given some modern updates and a fresh coat of paint before Jenner moved in and the “Keeping Up With The Kardashians,” cameras started rolling.

                    Sometimes 2 isn’t better than 1. After more than 2 full years on the market, Christina Aguilera has finally sold the Beverly Hills mansion she purchased from Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne. Originally listed for $13.5 million, Aguliera never officially reduced the asking price on the home, but according to property records, she eventually ended up selling for $11.5 million – a full $2 million less than the diva wanted for her palace. The deal closed on April 29, 2013, and the buyer’s identity is still unknown.

                    Aguilera has since moved on to another Beverly Hills mansion in the exclusive guard-gated Mulholland Estates community. Her new 11,000-square-foot estate was reportedly purchased from multi-billionaire and global private equity mogul Tom Gores for an even $10 million.

                    Her just-sold home was the stage for Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne’s reality show “The Osbournes” many years ago and is in the heart of Beverly Hills on Doheny Drive. The estate is gated and extremely private and has 6 bedrooms and 9 bathrooms spread out over 10,000 square feet.
