BENJAMIN KAHLE.

Architectural Realtor with Deasy / Penner & Partners.

Newly Appointed Commissioner to The Los Angeles County Historical Records and Landmarks Commission

I started in real estate many years ago, while working full time in the advertising industry. After being mentored by several seasoned flippers, real estate brokers and investors, I obtained my real estate license in early 2014. While I initially intended to use my license purely for my own long term acquisitions, a good friend eventually "forced" me into helping him buy an investment property. I fell in love with the process and dove in with both feet. The rest is history...

I am proud to be able to bring a humble wealth of experience to clients interested in historic, modern and architectural properties. My wife, Son and I currently reside in the renowned historic Doumakes House, the first historic landmark (Landmark #1), and the first home to be awarded Mills Act in all of Unincorporated Los Angeles County. In 2013, I co-founded View Park Conservancy, a non-profit organization which led a three year initiative to have the View Park neighborhood of Los Angeles listed on the National Register of Historic Places, which was passed in July of 2016. Comprised of nearly 1800 homes, View Park neighborhood is the largest National Register historic district in the Country based on African American history, and the largest in California in terms of total property owners. I was fortunate enough to have been awarded a 2017 LA Conservancy Preservation Award for excellence in Los Angeles historic preservation.

Over the past 4 years I have been an advisor to several neighborhoods and HOA’s working towards historic designation for their neighborhoods. I have also become an advisor and resource for clients and homeowners interested in historical remodels or restorations. My clients become lifetime friends and are generally cut from the same cloth; Humble yet savvy individuals who are passionate about architecture and want to maximize their situation in the best way possible for their families.

In 2018 I was appointed as a Commissioner to The Los Angeles County Historical Records and Landmarks Commission.
