Dan Beder was born and raised in Los Angeles, California. His father was a USC math professor and Dan received his Bachelor’s in Psy-chology at UCLA. In 1987, he became a licensed realtor and, in the early 90s, he obtained a provisional appraiser’s license. Appraising homes for the banks gave Dan a strong background for assessing and pinpointing the value of properties.
Dan specializes in properties in and around Beverly Hills, Brentwood, Bel Air and Malibu. He sells homes at all price points, from single bedroom condos to luxury estates, stays on top of the market and truly enjoys working with a wide variety of clients with different needs and wants. Dan also has a history of selling new developments and commercial properties.
Dan has been working with Sotheby’s International Real Estate since 2008. He has represented Sellers and Buyers in landmark sales such as Bob Vila’s La Costa Beach house in Malibu that aired on the famous T.V. show “This Old Home”. He sold the Beverly Hills Pickfair Estate which was owned by Mary Pickfair and was where the “Rat Pack” hung out in the hidden speak easy/bomb shelter. In 2007, he closed the largest sale in the equestrian Brentwood Sullivan Canyon neighborhood. It was a double lot ranch which was the original home of Cliff May. Cliff May built and designed the home, the horse facilities and the guest house. Cliff May sold the house to Robert Wagner who was the owner when Dan made the sale. Dan also represented the Sellers in the record-breaking sale of 944 Airole, Bel Air. It is a four acre, 360-degree view property which is now the home to the newly constructed, most expensive home in America. Asking one half a billion dollars.
Dan has many international clients. He has sold properties in Bel Air, Beverly Hills and Brentwood to his clients from China and Japan. In 2015, he flew to Tokyo to represent his Sellers in the record breaking sale in Rippongi Hills Tokyo. One of the main reasons Dan works with Sotheby’s International Realty is for their international presence.
Dan lives by the ocean with his wife, two kids and their dog and maintains that real estate is his pride and joy second only to his family. Dan truly loves delivering excellent service to his clients whether they are selling or buying their home.
