HEY THERE! MY NAME IS BENJAMIN KAHLE.
I AM AN ARCHITECTURAL REALTOR WITH DEASY/PENNER & PARTNERS AS WELL AS NATIVE ANGELENO WITH A LIFELONG PASSION FOR THE INIMITABLE HISTORIC ARCHITECTURE OF LOS ANGELES.
I started in real estate many years ago when my wife and I began purchasing apartment buildings as investments. 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 only for my own acquisitions, a good friend "forced" me into helping him buy a home in Mar Vista. 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.
