Greenhouse guru Rich Reilly dumps $25 million on an A-list-style Beverly Hills estate

Anyone who has followed Yolanda’s silly little blog for even a short period of time should know that there’s really nothing we crave more than an excuse to briefly dissect the history of a major celebrity-style estate located in a posh pocket of LA. And this next house, originally built in 1934 (though majorly renovated […]

The rumor mill: a $75 million sale in Malibu?

Normally Yolanda doesn’t pay much attention to the noise and other assorted foolishness that trills its way into our ears. We generally prefer facts backed up by research and property records. Today, however, we’ve gotta make an exception. The everyday rumors we hear are ridiculous and ridiculously false, but this one is so outlandish we think it might actually […]

Megan Ellison quietly drops $7 million on the little house next door

When she’s not producing/distributing/marketing critically-acclaimed blockbusters or going on Twitter rants about Donald Trump, you can almost assuredly find 31-year-old billionaire software heiress Megan Ellison in the property gossip columns. In less than ten years, by Yolanda’s tabulations, young Miss Ellison has bought and sold no fewer than a dozen multi-million dollar properties in the good […]

British DJ Mark Ronson un-leaves Los Feliz with a $4.3 million splash

Back in early 2015, acclaimed British music producer/DJ Mark Ronson — a Grammy winner for Amy Winehouse’s Back to Black and Uptown Funk (featuring Bruno Mars) —  wrote a song entitled “Leaving Los Feliz“.

Laurene Powell Jobs pays $16 million for the little Malibu house next door

For any of you stock market followers (or whatever), put on your thinking caps and y’all may recall that exuberantly wealthy Silicon Valley widow Laurene Powell Jobs recently raised eyebrows when it was revealed that she was no longer Disney’s largest single shareholder, as she had been since Steve Jobs’ 2011 death.  Quietly and rather […]

Horror film producer/director Jaume Collet-Serra drops $5 million on Sunset Plaza

While the rest of the world — or at least the rest of the US — has had their attention laser-focused on President Trump’s controversial new healthcare plan, Yolanda’s nosy nose has been stuck in other folks’ real estate beeswax, as per usual. One property that caught our eye recently was a spiffy newly-renovated contemporary […]

Pablo “Pornstache” Schreiber goes off the grid in Topanga

Distanced as it may be from the central hub of LA — well, wherever that is — the mountainous and semi-remote community of Topanga Canyon nonetheless possesses a small but significant dose of celebrity wattage. Yolanda actually thinks that the secluded and difficult-to-access locale (Topanga lies in the rugged hills between Malibu and the San […]
