1611 Donaldson St. was a meticulously renovated fourplex in prime Echo Park near coffee, dining, and scenic Elysian Park hiking trails. While KST was the listing agent of 1926 Santa Ynez (click here for success story), a 1031 exchange buyer reached out and expressed interest. However, the property was already non-contingent in escrow, and the buyer was running out of options. With an extensive database and track record with Northeast LA owners, we were confident with our ability to source an off-market deal.


2 weeks later, we reached a Seller who had recently completed extensive renovations and wanted to cash out of a challenging market. Ultimately, we closed escrow in 21 days at $2,741,000. 1611 Donaldson St. is the fourth-highest sale for a rent-controlled fourplex in 90026 (Echo Park/Silver Lake). This sale further solidifies our team’s expertise in “creating a market” and our Northeast LA track record. KST had set the record sale price for properties in this category a year prior  – 839 N. Occidental Blvd (click here for case study).

Speaking for myself and everyone involved, you were absolutely the best broker we could have selected to market our portfolio. You found an incredible buyer and were able to guide us through so many challenges, including a global pandemic, and secured us a price beyond our expectations.
