In case you can't sleep at night without seeing the top 10 most expensive homes purchased by the super wealthy in LA during the first half of 2018 (on the MLS, that is...) take a look below.
These homes are in Holmby Hills, Bel Air, Beverly Hills, Brentwood, Pacific Palisades, Malibu and the Hollywood HIlls. These areas are more diverse than the top sellers of 2017. Brentwood and the Palisades didn't make the cut last year.
Take a look. Which is your favorite? Mine are the two in Malibu and the one in the Hollywood Hills. I have an idea: I could stay in the Hollywood Hills during the week and spend my weekends in Malibu! Now THAT's living!
