Kevin Mitchell is an Estates Agent at Compass and Associate Partner with LHspaces. Hailing from a family involved in real estate – both Kevin’s mother and step-mother practice real estate – Kevin’s exposure to the industry led him into the path of real estate as his own career having spent time around those who he respects and admires. He prides himself on a discerning analytical side which he says he gets from his Father who is a Civil Engineer and very much a humanitarian. Kevin’s family and experience in life have shaped his love of the human connection. Kevin especially loves the negotiation process, he calls it the heart and soul of the buying and selling process. Kevin’s service mindset is an invaluable asset that sets him apart as he negotiates his clients the best deal in regards to their needs.
Kevin is passionate about Los Angeles – a city like no other. Built between desert and water and yet filled with gorgeous mountains and green spaces, Kevin says “the city is an eclectic mix of urban culture with the allure of any and all outdoor activities to enjoy in the sunshine. Not to mention the myriad of stunning architectural styles our homes boast!” Kevin says LA is a place for culture and beauty which extends into the homes of the people.
Given that we live in Southern California, modernist architecture is well known and often celebrated. Kevin personally likes the work of Rudolph Michael Schindler who’s work defined inventiveness including the use of complex three-dimensional forms, warm materials and stark color breaking out of the traditional mold of houses as non-aesthetically pleasing and functionality over form. Kevin particularly likes Schindler’s use of space, climate, light and mood, finding them both visually and functionally attractive.
Kevin volunteers on holidays at places like Gobble Gobble Give, and is active year round with Food on Foot and the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank where he regularly gives his time.
He enjoys spending leisure time in NELA or Hollywood at a rock show with friends or collecting vinyl at one of the many record stores in LA county like Amoeba Records. Kevin calls himself “a bit of a music geek”, follows the stock market closely, has a love of cooking for his friends and regularly supports friends in all of their various endeavors of art and business.
