about / James Harris
James Harris was born and raised in London, England, where he started in the real estate industry at the tender age of 17. After 5 years working in a residential office as an investment agent, James said he "saw the light" and decided to move to Los Angeles to broaden his experience - and to see the sun!
Today, his American dream has come true and James has the opportunity to work in a city he loves with an incredibly talented group of people. He and his business partner David Parnes specialize in high-end residential real estate and investment properties in The Hollywood Hills, Beverly Hills, Bel Air, Pacific Palisades, Malibu, Brentwood and The Greater Los Angeles area. James loves working with both buyers and sellers as they go through this pivotal process, one of the most important times of their lives. He loves matching buyers with their dream homes and communities as well as assisting sellers to make this transaction as easy, stress-free and efficient as possible.
James is happily married with a beautiful wife and two daughters. When he is not at work, James and his family love going to the beach and spending quality time together. Additionally, James is involved with the Jewish Federation Community and various other charitable causes.
about / David Parnes
Originally from London, England, David Parnes brings English charm to the City of Angels. Co-founder of a premium real estate service company, Bond Street Partners, Parnes and his partner James Harris grossed over $120 million in sales and another $150 million in escrow in 2013 alone.
After earning his Bachelor of Arts with Honors in Economics and Politics from the University of Manchester, Parnes began working at a hedge fund before moving on to represent a private portfolio of real estate assets in Europe. While taking breaks from the London fog, Parnes spent his summers in Los Angeles and was drawn to the sunshine, beautiful people and vast potential of the city's real estate market. As a result, he made the decision to permanently call L.A. home in 2009.
Today, he specializes in high-end residential real estate and investment properties in Beverly Hills, Bel Air, Brentwood, the Hollywood Hills, Malibu, the Pacific Palisades and the greater Los Angeles region. The partners' "no-nonsense" approach to closing deals, coupled with their extensive network of high-net-worth international and domestic clients, have enabled them to rise to the top in an astoundingly short period of time.
In 2013, the partners sold a listing on L.A.'s famous Melrose Place, home to boutiques of renowned designers Oscar De La Renta, Chloé and Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen's store, The Row. Also that year, Parnes was named one of "Hollywood's Top 25 Real Estate Agents" by The Hollywood Reporter and his most recent and personal project includes building a 4,200 square foot contemporary home in West Hollywood where he plans to live with his girlfriend, Adrian, and their two Basset Hounds, Maxi and Bella.
