David Parnes

Principal

Originally from London, England, David Parnes brings English charm to the City of Angels. Parnes and his partner, James Harris, have established themselves as two of the top agents serving the Los Angeles luxury market.

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, warm and friendly 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 stars on Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles and 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 reach a steady incline in sales year over year, with over $2 Billion in sales since 2017. These staggering sales figures earned the partners The Agency’s MVP Award in 2017, 2018 and 2019 and The Agency’s Chairman Award in 2020.

The partners have broken numerous records. They represented the seller in the $120 million dollar sale of 594 S. Mapleton in Holmby Hills—also known as The Manor— setting the record for the highest sale in Holmby Hills, the 4th highest sale ever in Los Angeles County and the 6th highest sale in U.S. history. The partners also represented the seller in the $72.5 million dollar sale of a home in the Trousdale area of Beverly Hills—marking the highest sale in Beverly Hills history in 2019. They had the highest sale in 2019 in the Beverly Flats for $32.3 million and the highest since 2012 in the Hollywood Hills/Sunset Strip for $35.5 million.

Other notable sales include representing the buyer of a Malibu estate for $69.9 Million, the buyer of 630 Nimes Road—Le Belvedere—for $56 Million and the seller of a newly developed property at 900 Stradella Rd. in Bel Air for $41 Million. For the $34M sale of the Casey Kasem Estate in Holmby Hills, the $30 Million sale of 438 N. Faring Road in Holmby Hills and the $30 Million sale at 200 N. Delfern in Holmby Hills, they represented both the Buyer and the Seller. David and James also facilitated the sale of a prized property on L.A.'s famous Melrose Place, home to the boutiques of renowned designers such as Oscar De La Renta and Chloé, and the famed Hustler store on Sunset Blvd. for $18.5 Million.

Building on this incredible success, David and James have expanded their listing inventory to include a $29 million new construction property in the Sunset Strip area, a brand new Bel Air estate priced at $40 million and several large trophy estates which are currently under construction. Their current listing portfolio is worth an astonishing $1 Billion and includes some of the City’s most impressive properties. Their exclusive clientele is comprised of countless celebrities, producers, business managers, agents, heads of Fortune 500 companies and numerous high-net worth individuals.

David Parnes has earned many recent accolades including being named in Variety’s Showbiz Real Estate Elite in 2015, 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020 & 2021, The Hollywood Reporter’s Top 25 Agents in 2015, 2017, 2018 & 2019.
