Celebrities took time off from their busy schedules this week to make headlines in the real estate world. They might’ve also joined forces to agree on a unanimous listing price: $15 million.

The home of Glenn Frey, the late Eagles frontman famous for SoCal’s favorite tunes like “Hotel California” and “Desperado,” hit the market this week at $15 million. Located in Marlboro Street in Brentwood, the estate boasts six bedrooms, 11 bathrooms, a home theater, rose gardens, swimming pool and fitness room. David Offer of Berkshire Hathaway has the listing.

Sassy musician couple Tamar Braxton and her producer hubby Vincent Herbert listed their 13,700-square-foot Calabasas estate at $15 million (this seems to be the price point sweet spot) earlier this week amid rumors of a breakup and financial struggles. Seven bedrooms, 11 bathrooms, a swimming pool, lush manicured gardens and even a recording studio complete the gated property. Brothers Marc and Rory Shevin of Berkshire Hathaway Home Services hold that listing. The Braxtons, like another reigning Calabasas family, have a long-running reality tv show “Tamar & Vince.”

Well-known art dealer Margo Leavin listed her Hollywood Hills pad for — you guessed it — $15 million. The home, part of the gated La Brea Terrace neighborhood, spans 8,500 square feet and includes five bedrooms, seven bathrooms, a swimming pool with spa and outdoor kitchen. Leavin, 81, often rubbed shoulders with L.A.’s elite during the height of her eponymous art gallery in 70s and 80s. Brett Lawyer of Hilton & Hyland has the listing.

The former home of Sid Bernstein, the music mogul often credited with the Beatles’ American success, is being shopped off-market for $4.4 million. The home is likely to win the fancy of James Dean fans, considering it was used in the opening credits of “Rebel Without a Cause.” Located on Franklin Avenue in the Hollywood Hills, the two-story home has five bedrooms and four bedrooms across 4,400 square feet of living space. Darian Robin of the Agency has the listing.

The week wouldn’t be complete without an appearance by the popstar-turned-real estate empresario Katy Perry, who cares so much about the Catholic church she tried bidding on a house in Eagle Rock on the behalf of priests. Sadly for her, and the priests, Perry lost that fight amid owners’ fears it would turn into a hell hole (pun intended) for badly-behaved priests. The Bekins estate at 1554 Hill Drive is now back on the market at $5.59 million. Laura Brandt of Partners Trust is seeking a buyer for the 8,900-square-foot residence.
