Maisonre is a boutique real estate agency created by a handful of agents bringing decades of combined experience in the Los Angeles housing market as well as varied artistic backgrounds connected by a common thread of creative expression. Fluent in market conditions, our precise skills not only find or sell the houses our clients are looking for, but take it one step farther to perfect the home they aim to buy or sell. As a team we employ “out of the box” solutions, creative strategies, and reliable methods to procure the sale and keep it on track in a challenging market. As individuals, we work off each other’s specific backgrounds to bring a holistic design to each and every transaction.
We began as and continue to function as a brokerage firm whose clients wanted us to continue helping them create the ideal home spaces following the purchase of their new homes, as we are art lovers, California natives, and artistic in training and practice. We have since become a home design and retail store that supplies lifestyle and home products as well as concierge and design services to homeowners and our homebuyers.
The store portion features products including refinished mid century and modern furniture, new furniture with an elegant and occasionally rustic aesthetic, original contemporary art (painting, photography, and drawings) as well as humorous works on paper. Also carried are luxury candles, accessories for the home, unique custom lighting, linens, and unusual hardware.
As co-founders, we have more than twenty collective years of experience working at big box corporations including Berkshire-Hathaway, Coldwell Banker, Deasy Penner, and Keller Williams. While the bigger companies were our bedrock, the advent of the World Wide Web has evened the playing field for both small and large companies, as buyers no longer need a well connected agent to find available listings—an internet connection is all it takes to cruise sites like Trulia and Redfin, finding information that once was privileged to in-house coworkers.
These days, small and large companies alike have the same resources for manifesting exposure, whether it is for listing a property or perusing those for sale. With no obvious advantage to sticking with the larger companies, we decided it was time to take creative control. We want to individualize Maisonre as an agency with a clear artistic vision and original strategies that maximize our buying and selling power.
Here, we can offer the skillset of a large company, but with a more intimate and inspired model. Here, we have the freedom to think and create ‘outside the box’ as opposed to the manufactured marketing often found at larger companies. Here, we are a small group of experienced and ambitious professionals with varied backgrounds in creative fields, from design to music to art to writing and education.
If the home you are looking for or selling isn’t “cookie-cutter,” then it makes sense you might choose an agency that isn’t either. Big businesses try to be all things to all people. We want to be specific to each client. Maisonre is our home.
