Sold a Condo home in 2015 for approximately $400K in Silver Lake, Los Angeles, CA.
They have sold two properties for me in the past six months and have done so expertly and professionally every step of the way. Attentive to all communications but, really, seldom was there anything I needed to contact them about as once I gave them the listing they took care of everything. I give the Beachwood Team my highest recommendation!

Peter and Alastair represented us on the sale of our home, and were entirely professional, helpful and delightful throughout the whole process. Peter kept in very close contact with us and advised us well during our negotiations.
We wish we had another home to sell! Would use them again in a heartbeat.

Peter Lavin and his team are exceptional. Peter was my buying agent on my last two home purchases. He's at the top of his game. He's an amazing negotiator who fights for you as if it's his own home purchase. He's extremely knowledgeable about the real estate industry and market trends. Buying (and selling) a home can be a bit nerve-racking and Peter was always one step ahead of the game to make sure we were on top of every inspection, contingency deadline, etc... He's also just a great guy which makes the whole experience more enjoyable. I highly recommend Peter and his team. He's the only one I will use when buying and selling real estate in Southern California.

Peter and Alistair represented my wife and I as sellers on a rental property in the Hollywood Dell. We consider ourselves lucky to have found and hired them. They are smart, thoughtful, and they hustle. They handled every interaction from listing to close with positive professionalism. After the transaction closed, the neighbor owners were so pleased with the price per square foot Peter and Alistair negotiated that they took me out to lunch.
Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $1.2M in Studio City, Studio City, CA.
Alastair helped us find and close on our first house purchase (2nd to a condo purchase years earlier) in a sellers' market. The seller(s) and their agent were very aware of their position and leveraged it in every which way imaginable. Alastair was calm and supportive where need be and aggressive and furious where appropriate. The purchase experience was longer, more painful and much more involved than any of us expected, but Alastair's high spirits and responsiveness made it manageable. I would highly recommend him to other buyers in the market.
Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $675K in Del Rey, Los Angeles, CA.
I put my house up for sale, and after 1 day on the market, The Beachwood Team secured an offer over asking price on the first day! We closed 30 days after. They were great about communicating and making sure we stay on pace to close on time. Peter and Alastair are seasoned vets at what they do. I would recommend them to anyone who wants a smooth and painless transaction.

I was referred to the Beachwood Team from a very good friend who recently purchased his house with Peter and The Team with great reviews. Meeting with Peter for the first time, he presented me a through market assessment of the house I was selling.
I was very impressed with his detail, and also honesty of figures. Further, I had previously been misled by Coldwell Banker (Sunset) who set my expectations very high, then ended up threatening to sue me for breach of contract (but that's a whole different, shady story!).
Anyway, back to Peter and Beachwood. Peter handled the negotiation of the house I ended up buying in Los Feliz. He had excellent referrals and handled the coordination of inspectors and all those other things I know very little about. He has a ton of experience and knows exactly what to do, how to negotiate, and get the best price.
After closing on the new house, The Team also helped me quickly and painlessly sell my previous house in West Hollywood. Ok, well not so 'painless' as Peter is very meticulous about staging and details to make sure you get the absolute best price, but his knowledge and attention to detail is impeccable.
Peter Lavin helped us buy this house just two years before and, of course, we called him to help us sell. Peter's marketing plan was comprehensive and realistic. As a former realtor and a frequent home buyer/seller, I have high expectations for what a realtor should provide. Peter consistently exceeded all of my expectations. We were in escrow in a matter of days and we closed the sale at well above the asking price!
I have had the pleasure of working with The Beachwood Team for over a year now and could not be more happy with my experience. Peter Lavin has helped me sell two homes and purchase two homes with each transaction being very smooth due to the finesse in which Peter runs his business. I really enjoyed working with Peter because he really listens to all of my concerns and addresses each appropriately. I am not a real estate agent so the process of buying and selling a home is very daunting to me. With the trust of a talented agent like Peter guiding me through the process, I could not feel more supported. Thank you Peter and Alastair, I will absolutely be contacting you guys again when I'm ready to make another purchase.

Despite multiple obstacles and difficult parties, Alastair expertly guided us through the process of buying our first home. At every turn he exhibited patience and professionalism. Most importantly, he took care to explain the complexities of the process in layman's terms so that we could be confident in our decision.
