About L.A. Realty & Design Group
Haya Handel and Gary Barkin specialize in luxury residential real estate and multi-unit investment properties throughout Los Angeles, delivering unparalleled, personalized attention to each client. Their boutique partnership, L.A. Realty & Design Group, is able to deliver a seamless concierge approach that exceeds client expectations and delivers amazing results.
The experienced and knowledgeable duo are also practicing attorneys, each with more than 20 years of experience negotiating deals of all sizes. This ensures that all of their clients’ real estate transactions are negotiated, documented and reviewed at a higher level of service and professionalism than others can offer.
The team has extensive experience renovating both investment properties and personal residences, which enables them to provide meaningful advice about turning a house into a dream home. Whether upgrading for a sale or renovating to attract high rents, they know which improvements offer the most “bang for the buck” and can provide clients with access to a comprehensive list of trusted vendors. From inspectors and architects to plumbers, painters and movers, Gary and Haya can assist.
As listing agents, the team is highly skilled at marketing, using only professional photographers and, if necessary, coordinating and supervising home staging and repairs, so that their clients’ residences are presented in the best light. Their savvy marketing strategies provide maximum exposure through multiple online and print platforms as well as direct mail, which usually result in packed open houses, multiple offers and top-dollar transactions for their clients’ homes.
For buyers, Gary and Haya are long-time Los Angeles residents offering well-informed insights into the varied neighborhoods and communities. This includes extensive knowledge about most Westside public and private schools and first-hand experience as parents of children in both systems. Whether representing a first-time homebuyer or an experienced investor, the duo’s skill, commitment and real estate knowledge create an unbeatable team.
