Aaron Kirman knows how to close a deal: He’s sold roughly $6 billion worth of real estate over his 25-year career, making him the No. 1 agent in Los Angeles and among the top in the country.
Aaron routinely sells multimillion-dollar properties, including one estate for a whopping $65 million, and on his new CNBC show, “Listing Impossible,” he helps homeowners sell their luxury real estate. He also runs the Aaron Kirman Group (AKG), a real estate team he started in 2017 that’s grown from seven agents at its inception to nearly 70 today.
As a top realtor, Aaron makes seven figures, but not all real estate agents earn a ton of money — and that’s one of the biggest misconceptions of the job. Most bring home less than $50,000 a year, Aaron estimates, while a top producer will make between $200,000 and $500,000. “Then you have the very, very, very top — a select few who make more than a million,” he says, adding: “And then there’s one level up, which is big, mega brokers. I’m pretty lucky to consider myself one of those.”
To experience a sliver of what it’s like to be the top realtor in the City of Angels, I spent a day with Aaron, meeting clients and looking at listings in some of the wealthiest neighborhoods in LA.
