It may have been a short week, post-Labor Day, but there was plenty of home-selling and buying action among the celebrity set, with real estate savvy Ellen DeGeneres and her wife, Portia de Rossi, again leading the way.

DeGeneres and de Rossi sold a 10.5-acre ranch in Santa Barbara to Nickelodeon president Brian Robbins for just shy of $7 million, according to Variety. The duo paid $6.7 million for the property just a year ago, and had originally listed the three-bedroom, three-and-a-half bathroom home for $9 million. The couple are luxury real estate pros, having closed on $152 million in properties in the last two years. [TRD]

Jonah Hill, he of “The Wolf of Wall Street” fame among other films, plunked down $6.8 million for a 3,100-square-foot home in the beachy enclave of Santa Monica. The four-bedroom, four-and-a-half bathroom home features a swimmer’s pool, spa and guesthouse. The seller, singer-songwriter Jesse Jo Stark, made a hefty profit on the home, which she bought five years ago for $4.6 million. [TRD]

Kourtney Kardashian’s baby Daddy is making business moves of his own. Scott Disick listed his two-story home in the gated community of Hidden Hills for $6.9 million, according to the Los Angeles Times Pretty ambitious for the property, which Disick bought in 2018 for a mere $3.2 million. To be fair, he did extensively renovate the five-bedroom, 5,663-square-foot home. The reality TV star maintains other real estate in the celebrity-inhabited enclave. [TRD]

A Spanish-style home overlooking the Silver Lake Reservoir was a perfect fit for Hollywood power couple Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis, according to Variety. Originally designed in 1928 by Frankie Faulkner, one of the city’s first female architects, the 2,833-square foot, four-bedroom home was updated by DISC Interiors in 2016. The actors scooped up the pad for close to $3.5 million within two weeks of the property being listed. [TRD]
