Page Turner regularly got her hands dirty renovating homes as host for television shows such as “Fix My Flip,” with the second season aired on HGTV earlier this month. 

But she recently announced a venture far from the hammers and nails of reality TV shows. Turner will helm iKONIC Sports and Entertainment, a business launched by her and the executives of Coldwell Banker Exclusive, a downtown Los Angeles franchise of Coldwell Banker. Its mission is to advise on real estate investments and arrange deals for people in entertainment and professional sports, Turner said. 

“I am at a place in my 20-year career where I wanted to garner all my experience from the real estate and entertainment business under one roof,” she wrote in a prepared statement. 

➤Brokers Jackie Naidoo and Alec Traub recently affiliated with Rodeo Real Estate. 

Traub represented the buyer in a June 2019 deal for a $72.5 million home on Robert Lane in Trousdale Estates enclave of Beverly Hills. It was that year’s priciest deal for a single-family home in Beverly Hills. Due to a non-disclosure agreement, Traub declined to talk more about the deal.

Traub and Naidoo started collaborating when they worked together at Redfin. Traub had been affiliated with Redfin since 2010 and said he was one of the publicly traded agency’s first Los Angeles market agents.

One reason why Traub and Naidoo affiliated with Rodeo was to work at a firm where they could get more personal attention. “We wanted to get back to something where you’re closer to everyone in the company,” Traub said.

Traub and Naidoo blended their first names to create a name for their partnership, Team Jackal. They’ll work from Rodeo’s Sunset Strip office. They’ll focus on a range of listings from condos to estates in markets such as Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Hollywood Hills and other parts of Los Angeles.

➤Three agents affiliated with independent firm Nourmand & Associates in May. 

Melinda Moore is a serial entrepreneur and author of the 2016 book “How to Raise Money: The Ultimate Guide to Crowdfunding.” She also currently serves as an advisor for Aventura Ventures. She’ll focus on residential and investment properties in West Los Angeles. 

Heather Thurman recently worked as an agent in Nashville. In Nourmand’s Hollywood office, she will focus on selling homes in neighborhoods such as Hollywood, Beverly Hills, Brentwood, Studio City and Silverlake.
