The perfect blend of British style and American drive, James Harris brings his charisma, intellect, and wit as co-founder of luxury real estate firm, Bond Street Partners. Born and raised in London, England, Harris' entrepreneurial drive started at the tender age of 16. After working as a residential investment agent in the United Kingdom, Harris headed west to Los Angeles to broaden his horizon and to enjoy the California sunshine. Today, Harris is living the American Dream, working in a city he loves with an incredibly talented group of people. He and business partner/childhood friend, David Parnes, specialize in high-end residential real estate and investment properties in Beverly Hills, Bel Air, Brentwood, the Hollywood Hills, Malibu, Pacific Palisades, and the greater Los Angeles region. Recently listed in The Wall Street Journal’s “2015 Real Trends Top 1000 agents in America,” Harris has proven that his exceptional service and attention to each and every one of his clients is the recipe to his success. A firm believer in giving back to the community, Harris is heavily involved in various humanitarian charities. He is happily married to his beautiful wife, Valeria, and has two daughters, Sofia and Chloe. His three girls are the light of his life. He and partner Parnes have sold over $165 million in real estate since 2014 and their sales volume is growing at a formidable pace year over year. Notable sales for 2015 include the famed Hustler store on Sunset Blvd., which they sold for $18.5 million to their client, developer Zach Vella. Other notable listings include the $30 million sale of 438 N. Faring Road, a deal in which they represented both the buyer and the seller, and a property in Beverly Hills sold to NBA player Kris Humphries for $6.2 million. They also represented the buyer on a Hollywood Hills home that belonged to NFL star Reggie Bush.
