…We let our clients do the talking…
“Discreet, professional, intuitive, honest and with impeccable vision are just a few qualities that Brian Courville and his team possess!
We enlisted Brian Courville , Director of the Architectural Division, and his team, to sell our much loved mid-century post and beam home, “The Rhies Residence”. Under the care of the Modern Living LA team, we not only sold our home (essentially at the first open house), but we had multiple offers hundreds of thousands over the asking price. Most importantly, it was a buyer who appreciated the architectural bones. We couldn’t recommend them more highly.

“The Modern Living LA team was the best real estate team I have ever used!
I am a business manager for several high-net-worth clients and have been involved in many real estate transactions. They made what could have been a difficult process seamless. They were there every step of the way. They went above and beyond in all aspects of the trans- action. I literally didn’t have to think and could just concentrate on what I do best which is to obtain the loans & provide money timely. There was always someone available to help out with anything and everything. We were very well taken care of.”
DEBORAH LOOBER | Business Manager/CPA
“People look at my husband and I cross-eyed when we talk about our history of buying a new house, and selling the “old” every few years.
This means not only packing up our kids and packing a lot of boxes, but dealing with a lot of Realtors. Honestly, we’ve never stuck with one Realtor twice in our 7 moves over 20 years, until now, though we swear we’ll never move again! Brian and his team are so incredibly cool and warm, caring and competent, we’ll never let them go and we’re definitely inviting them over for dinner.”

“I moved to the east coast and had to list my condo after relocating, and it couldn’t have been easier or smoother than working with Modern Living LA!
I had initially listed the condo with an agent I had known for many years, but after three months, we had no offers. The second Modern Living LA got involved, everything turned around. Their advice was spot-on, the were proactive, and they were aggressive in exactly the ways agents should be. We received two offers within four days of listing and closed in 30 days. The Modern Living LA team were all extremely responsive and communicative, the advocated for me, and everything was transparent, timely, thorough and painless. Brian and the Modern Living LA team were absolutely wonderful. If I ever move back to LA, I know who to call.”
SHAYNA KESSEL | Associate Dean of Masters Education
“Brian Courville and the entire Modern Living LA team are amazing!
We had an astounding 37 offers on our house and closed at a price well above and beyond our best expectations. Brian and his team could not have been better in helping us buy our next home in one of the most competitive neighborhoods in LA not to mention the country. His incredible patience, excellent negotiating skills and expertise in escrow issues were invaluable. Buying a house in this market is incredibly stressful and Brian’s kind and down-to-earth manner made the process bearable. We recommend Modern Living LA highly. It was an absolute pleasure to work with them on both transactions. You could not be in better hands.”

“Brian Courville and his team were instrumental in the proper pricing, staging, listing, negotiating and final sale of our home.
They dedicated their time and attention to listen to our needs and made sure we understood and weighed our options through- out the entire process. Their expertise meant listing our home at maximum market value and selling our home in the established time-frame. Additionally, Brian & his team helped us find our new dream home in the competitive Los Angeles housing market. They took their time to make sure we attended as many open houses and private showings needed to make an intelligent choice. They moved quickly and effectively when it came time to put in an offer. They stood by us throughout the entire inspection and financing process until close to make sure we stayed on schedule and felt comfortable and confident we were making the right decisions. We highly recommend Modern Living LA.”

“Brian and his team represented my wife and I in the sale of our Studio City House (where we had lived for 28 years), and in the purchase of a Westwood condominium.
Our house was far from an architectural marvel, but they were able to determine a target buyer, exercised modest staging, and great photography with a view toward Internet splash. We hit the market at the right time with the right price and ended up with the perfect buyer (paying over asking). They were the consummate pros, and could not be more highly recommended.”
BRUCE TEPPER | Attorney
“The MLLA agents were very responsive and hyper attentive, responding to questions and issues in every regard to the selling of the property.
They went above and beyond to ensure we had the easiest and most productive experience, minimizing any complications and helping to resolve any issues that arose.”
EMMA LUDBROOK | Film Producer | Music Management
“We came to Brian Courville and his team with a long and very specific laundry list of must-haves at a nearly impossible price range for a mid-century modern home.
This was at the height of a competitive market, a shortage of inventory and when a bidding war was a normal part of the home buying process. Through their extensive knowledge in the real estate market and appreciation for architecture, they helped us purchase our perfect home in a multiple offer scenario with relative ease. Brian and his team are extremely patient, ever optimistic and a pleasure to work with. Despite the frenzied pace in which their business continues to grow, they were never too busy to respond quickly to every email, phone call and text. All the effort and attention they invested into helping us find our home made us feel as though we were their only client. Long after the purchase of our home, they continue to stay in touch and ask how we are doing, which speaks for their genuine concern for their clients. We cannot leave out the fact that they are also highly regarded by their peers, not surprising, some people just love what they do, and it clearly shows.
PINKY & JOE SHAHEEN
“Brian Courville was amazing during my home buying process!
After looking at over 20 different places in the Hollywood area, I finally settled on the perfect spot thanks to Brian’s patience and knowledge of my lifestyle and needs. As a person that grew up in the real estate business, I’ve been around the process of buying and selling homes my whole life. Brian took me through the process step by step and made it as smooth as possible, when I’m ready to upgrade… I know who to call!”
