My Favorite Homes: Hacienda de la Paz

I have the remarkable opportunity to see so many fabulous homes that I’m frequently asked, which ones are your favorites? Right up there on my top ten list has to be the remarkable Hacienda de La Paz in Rolling Hills on the Palos Verdes Peninsula. This 7.72 acre estate on prime land with overlooking the…

Make Your Home a Dog Vacay Resort 1

DogVacay Host — The Best Gig in Hollywood (Or Anywhere Else)

Anyone involved in the canine culture knows that it’s often much easier to accommodate and interact with four-legged friends than their two-legged counterparts. Pets show unreserved  gratitude and unconditional love with nary a complaint. Humans not so much. That’s why I wouldn’t dream of opening up my Hollywood home to strangers who found me on a website and…

The Secret's Rhonda Byrne Lists Montecito Estate

It’s no secret that Rhonda Byrne made a bundle off her self-help series based on the book and video called The Secret. Nor is it uncommon knowledge that she spent part of her fortune on a Montecito estate up in Montecito–that’s Oprah Winfrey territory–near Santa Barbara. Byrne bought the gorgeous Mediterranean estate, known as “Prima Luce,” for $18…

Dennis Miller Lists Beach House Exterior

Dennis Miller Asks $22.5 Million For His Beautiful Beach House in Carpinteria

If it were in Malibu, maybe, but we think comedian/talk show host Dennis Miller is shooting a little high by listing his Carpinteria beach house for a whopping $22.5 million. As gorgeous as the home may be, it’s in south Santa Barbara County, not trendy, Oprah-infested Montecito, and it boasts 63 feet of sandy beach…

Home of Kenny G, Pete Sampras Living Room

Former Home of Kenny G, Pete Sampras and Jon Peters for Sale

Some homes just seem to have star appeal. Take this 1.5 acre Beverly Hills estate, for example: not only is it the former home of Kenny G, Pete Sampras and Jon Peters, but Kate Jackson also held the title, and she bought it from famous TV producer/director William Asher (Bewitched, The Patty Duke Show, Gidget). Who knows…

Kim and Kanye's $3 Million Fixer Street View

Why Did Kim Kardashian and Kanye West Buy This $3 Million Shack?

This run down ranch house is hardly a star quality property. As a matter of fact, in any other market, they’d be hard pressed to get $300,000 for it, let alone $3 million. So why did Kim Kardashian and Kanye West buy this $3 million tear down? Location, my dears. It’s all about location. It seems…

Celebrity House Hunters: New Home for New Family

When it comes to mixing work with play, about the only thing I like better than watching House Hunters on HGTV is hanging out with real life house hunters attempting to find their dream home. And since this is Los Angeles, many of the house hunters I’m involved with are of the upscale, celebrity variety. Yes, it’s true, most…

Seattle Celebrates the Holidays on Snowflake Lane

Just got back from Seattle doing an HGTV.com piece on one of the greatest, biggest holiday street shows in the country, Snowflake Lane at the Bellevue Collection in Washington state. For those of you not familiar with the area, Bellevue is to Seattle what Beverly Hills is to Los Angeles. They shut down an entire street every…

Breaking Bad's Bob Odenkirk Lists Exterior 2

Better Call Saul if You Want This Insanely Cool Midcentury Modern

It seems that Breaking Bad’s Bob Odenkirk is popping up in all the right places lately. Not only is the world waiting with bated breath for his smarmy lawyer Saul Goodman spin-off, Better Call Saul on AMC, but he also appeared as a hapless police chief on Fargo, the TV series, and as a level headed…

Most Expensive Home in America Family Room

At $195 Million, It's the Priciest Home in America

When I heard about the recently listed Palazzo di Amore in Beverly Hills, I couldn’t help but wonder if the price might be a publicity stunt. I mean, it would have to be pretty lavish to merit a price tag more than twice the price of that crazy Trousdale Estate that Beyonce and Jay Z are considering, or…
