Ben Bacal began his real estate career at the young age of 24. In his first year as a REALTOR he sold more than $17 million dollars in real estate. Since then, his yearly sales have more than quadrupled making Ben one of very few realtors who have been instrumental in raising the median home sale prices in every neighborhood that he sells in. Ben's successes in Real Estate garnered him the front cover of the LA Times Business Section as well a listing as one of The Wall Street Journal's top 1000 agents nationwide. As well as being responsible for the $20,000,000 record breaking sale of a home in the Beverly Hills Trousdale Estates, which was purchased as a tear down, Ben was also involved in the $75,000,000 sale of the most expensive house sold in Malibu, the sale of Madonna's home in Beverly Hills, which sold for $19,500,000, and the sale of Megan Ellison's (film producer and Oracle heir) compound on Nightingale Drive which totaled over $47,000,000, just to name a few.
A great real estate transaction is centrally built not only upon the experience of how to get the transaction done, but also upon the strength and quality of the relationship between client and REALTOR®. Ben has always broken the existing record price per square foot and continues to break sales records and change the status quo with LA real estate prices because he knows how to sell and articulate the vision of Los Angeles real estate and its incredible value.
Ben is well respected and has developed invaluable working relationships with other professionals in the industry as well as with the hottest taste makers and people of influence. He has become the go-to agent for hard to find trophy properties. Ben's professional associations include the National Association of REALTORS®, the California Association of REALTORS®, the Los Angeles Multiple Listing Service, and the Malibu Board of REALTORS®. Ben was the #1 agent in his former company, Sotheby's International Realty.
Ben invests and works harder than any other agent in town and he has the track record of success to prove it. He is highly connected and likeable and this helps him create mega sales in LA over and over again. Ben and his team are committed to providing clear communication and the utmost loyalty to each client looking to sell or buy a home. When you work with Ben, you can be certain that thoughtful, calculated and realistic efforts will allow for bold decisions to be made, bringing you to a rewarding result.
