THE PANDEMIC REALLY THREW A WRENCH INTO residential sales in 2020 — especially in the first half of the year. But an analysis of deals from January through July shows which L.A. agents got the most business done despite the panic and lockdowns of the early pandemic.
Chris Cortazzo of Compass secured the top slot with $171 million in volume. Kurt Rappaport of Westside Estate Agency booked the second richest total, racking up nearly $141 million through just six high-dollar deal sides.
Tami Halton Pardee of Halton Pardee & Partners came in third for dollar totals, but she did the most deals of any of the top 10 agents, representing 63 sides in her transactions. The ranking only includes on-market deals, not off-market deals, which occur more frequently for luxury properties.
