About David

Highly regarded within the Westside brokerage community, David has distinguished himself as a consummate dealmaker and consistently ranked among the top 1% of all agents in the country. He was recently named one of Los Angeles’s top 250 agents in "REAL Trends America’s Best" for his record setting sales volume which is consistently between $50,000,000 to $100,000,000 per year.

For more than 15 years, David has specialized in residential sales and new construction in Pacific Palisades, Brentwood, Santa Monica and Malibu. Born and raised on the Westside of Los Angeles, his profound insight and understanding of L.A.’s prime coastal neighborhoods distinguishes him amongst his peers. He is passionate about helping his clients in every way possible and overcoming difficult challenges whenever they arise. For David, the road to a positive and successful outcome is not always straight and narrow, and he prides himself on his ability to adapt and provide creative solutions at a moment’s notice.

Whether he’s representing an architectural home in Santa Monica or advising on new construction in the Pacific Palisades, David provides his clients with invaluable market insight and unparalleled expertise that results in consistently positive transactions. His unwavering commitment to providing the highest level of service and discretion has earned him the loyalty of a discerning roster of clients, including entrepreneurs, real estate developers, A-list celebrities and professional athletes.

Prior to real estate, David was a successful health and fitness industry entrepreneur and highly sought-after personal trainer. He founded Liquid Architects, a company that designed high-end boutique home gyms, and Critical Mass, an acclaimed gym and personal training brand, both of which were instrumental in transforming L.A.’s fitness scene.

The quintessential California native with a penchant for adrenaline sports, David raced motorcycles for a number of years and today you can find him kart racing on purpose-built competition tracks across Southern California. A lifelong Angeleno, David grew up in Beverly Hills, where he attended Beverly Hills High School, and now lives in Malibu. He’s a grateful husband to his wife, Dawn, and loving father to his daughter, Madison.

"David Kelmenson is an outstanding real estate broker & we recommend him wholeheartedly. He is incredibly knowledgeable about Westside real estate as well as broader trends in the market. He is a superb tactician who, like a chess player, got us absolutely the best outcome we could ever hope to achieve - in fact, a much better outcome than we thought possible. David never relents in his efforts to serve the needs of his clients, even when there is no direct payoff to him. But actions speak louder than words: As a result of David's hard work & outstanding service, we recommended him to friends who have since had David represent them. Both were superlative in their praise of David. Just as important as his professional credentials, though, is the fact that David is a wonderful human being - warm, smart & endowed with a sense of humor. Interacting with him is a true pleasure." - Romain Wacziarg & Magali Delmas | Brentwood

"Thank you very much for following up with us, even after the close of escrow. Your professional & efficient approach, handling, guidance, & follow through during the last 3 months has impressed us over & over again. We have done several real estate transactions during the last 31 years in LA area, & never met an agent as effective & knowledgeable, & at the same time, pleasant to deal with, as you. Wish we had known you 20-30 years ago...! We were also glad to see that our escrow officer was trying so hard to perform as good as she could because she wanted to "match your standards". You will definitely be our #1 real estate source from now on! We already gave your info to a close friend. He was recently visiting us & loved our house. " - Ross & Pam Hashemi | Malibu
