In 2015, Tara Hotchkis and Dominic Labriola began a partnership as LHspaces and together in 2017 the partners represented Major League Baseball Player, Ichiro Suzuki in the sale of his Downtown Los Angeles Art’s District Penthouse Loft, setting a new price per square foot record in Downtown Los Angeles’ Boomtown. In addition to representing celebrities and high profile individual and corporate clients from DTLA to Malibu, the pair also represents fine estates internationally, having represented a country estate in Kinsale, Ireland and a villa in St. Tropez, France.

Outside of real estate, Tara enjoys travel, hiking, and painting. She is a former NCAA Division I tennis player and holds a bachelor’s degree from the University of California, Irvine.

My favorite architect, property or design influencer: I’m a mid-century art, design and architecture lover. Neutra, Eichler, Eames, Noguchi, Roy Lichtenstein, Mark Rothko, Jasper Johns, Robert Rauschenberg, Jackson Pollock.

On a free day in LA, you’ll find me… either at the Broad Museum, LACMA, the Getty, the Norton Simon, or the Huntington Library & Gardens.

Causes I care about: I’m a member of the Decorative Arts and Design Council at LACMA, an active supporter of P.S. ARTS, which provides funding for the arts programs in Los Angeles Public Schools, Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, an Ambassador for the Los Angeles Public Library Foundation’s Young Literati, serve on the Leadership Council for MOCA (Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art), and am a strong supporter of the Downtown Los Angeles Music Center, Dorothy Chandler Pavilion and The Los Angeles Philharmonic.
