The Sevens - Hancock Park

The Sevens is set within a protected park-like locale amid cosmopolitan L.A., adjoining the city’s most famous street address, Wilshire Boulevard, with Rimpau Boulevard.

Thoughtfully sited, the homes are freestanding but organized in a uniform north-south orientation, basking in year-round Southern California sun and warmth of the day’s book ends. The stunning architecture of The Sevens complements the stylistic significance of the surrounding neighborhood, each residence comprised of three different floor plans featuring 3 and 4 bedrooms, a direct two-car garage, and a rooftop terrace boasting panoramic mountain and city vistas. Classic brownstones, synonymous with a bygone era of New York, merge effortlessly with a clean modern aesthetic — an elegantly agreeable architectural crossroads at the front door of Hancock Park. With both traditional and contemporary grace, The Sevens adjoins a historic neighborhood with the inspired future landscape of Los Angeles.

Announcing METIS Los Angeles!

Yes, the rumors are true. We have launched METIS Los Angeles! Thanks to the internet and vast array of transportation options the world becomes increasingly smaller. The number of people commuting between Greater Los Angeles and Greater San Francisco has been steadily increasing year over year. In addition, Silicon Beach has taken an identity all its own. With cornerstone technology anchors such as Google's future campus in Playa Vista, Facebook, Yahoo, Snap Inc, Tiger Text, TrueCar, Dollar Shave Club, and the start up corridor in Santa Monica - the synergy between the Greater San Francisco Bay Area and Silicon Beach is undeniable. 

Leading METIS Los Angeles is Luis Rhee, a veteran of real estate in Los Angeles.  A graduate of USC and residing in the city for the past two decades, he brings the local expertise to METIS that will serve even the most discerning clients beyond expectations.  Prior to real estate, Luis was a Sr. Partner and top producer at a prominent Technology talent firm. One afternoon while surveying the Los Angeles basin from Griffith Observatory, Luis had an epiphany and shifted his focus to real estate.

Outside of real estate, Luis and his family reside in the Los Feliz / Silver Lake neighborhood of Los Angeles. His passions include traveling, food, wine, and surfing. You'll often catch Luis surfing the breaks of Manhattan Beach, checking out the newest restaurants in the city or cheering for this his Trojans at USC football games.

Above all Luis is an exceptional communicator, and project manager. We have worked with Luis for over a year on this project and am confidence in his straight forward and fast paced approach. 

Finally, Los Angeles is a truly fantastic city. It's only rival to diversity, food and cultural acceptance is San Francisco. Every time we visit we have an amazing time and meet incredible people. As Robert Crais once mentioned, "It's 465 square miles of insanity and the best food on the planet."

Web are humbled and excited to be a part of the insanity that is Los Angeles.
