Real Estate Link Love: November 2017

Just listed on the MLS — I designed the garden/patio for this cute Echo Park 2 bedroom/2 bath house on a corner lot, three years ago. It’s a short walk to Mohawk Bend, Bar Bandini, Elf, Crossfit, yoga and all the bars/restaurants on Sunset. If you want more info on the property let me know! It’s not my listing but I’m happy to show it.

Hey Kids!
I’ve been listening to a lot of podcasts lately driving around LA and back and forth to the desert.  If you are interested in investment property you should really listen to Bigger Pockets: Real Estate. It will get you excited about building an investment portfolio. Plus, they have archive of 300+ episodes, so you are sure to find something on pretty much any topic you are interested in right now.

Mortgage rates ticking higher. No doubt will be above 4% throughout 2018, and may even touch 5%.

Join Me on Periscope – Watch My Live Home Tours


Hey Guys — Have you checked out Periscope yet? It’s a new FREE App owned by Twitter that lets you file or watch live streams of video with people all over the world. Once you shoot a video it stays up for 24 hours. So in that way it is a little like Snapchat, but much easier to use. I’m really excited about Periscope — I think it is a great way to share places, homes, gardens, cities, etc with other people. It’s like having your own TV station in your your phone. I put up a live stream of a new listing yesterday and had 238 live views watching it as I walked around the house! My very first live stream. Crazy, right? I’m going to start using it to share home tours and broker’s opens. And to walk you through gardens I’m designing. Another neat thing is that people can comment and ask you questions – so it can be interactive if you want it to be.

Download the App here and follow me @pattyhume.

By the way, I’m easy to find on social media — I’m @pattyhume on Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest, Periscope, etc.

See you on live on Periscope!

Yes – Marvimon is For Sale. Live in a Bat Cave #DTLA

The space formerly known as Marvimon (the swanky event/wedding venue) is on the market as a single family home.  I stopped by today to see the place – I hadn’t been there in a few years. Back in 2011 I worked here for a few months, designing green walls.


Outdoor tub anyone? There are 4 bathrooms & 2 bedroom.


Stunning walled 2,000 SF garden with enormous green walls. The place works remarkably well for a a few people or a party of 150. It’s large but has a cozy feeling so it is not overwhelming if you are just hanging out all weekend by yourself.


Extra high ceilings. 6,929 SF compound.

Another green wall in the foyer. There was a vintage Alfa Romeo parked right next to it, but I didn’t think to get a picture of it.

They are asking $2,495,000. Contact me for a private showing.
I’m very familiar with the space and the garden.

Paul Kellogg & James Hancock of Coldwell Banker have the listing.
