Tracy Tutor Opens up About Selling Her Own "F--kin' Dope" House
"I thought it was going to be my forever house," the Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles broker said of her former abode.
Last year, Tracy Tutor listed her stunning Brentwood mansion for a whopping $24 million. Now, the Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles broker is opening up about her choice to sell the place she called home for more than a decade.
"I've officially decided to sell my house because, candidly, I'm ready for a new chapter," Tracy said on the show's June 23 episode. "My divorce is finalized and Jason and I share custody, so I only have the girls 50 percent of the time. We all need a fresh start, so I'm looking forward to this new adventure and I think the kids are too."
Tracy and her ex-husband, Jason Maltas, purchased the 11,000-square-foot home in 2009 for $13.5 million. "I thought it was going to be my forever house and so did Jason," Tracy said. "That's why we felt good about paying the price that we did."
After putting her personal touch on the home, Tracy felt confident about listing the property at the high price point. "My f--kin' house is dope," she said with a laugh on the episode. "We wanted to put our stamp on every single room in the house, so we put in custom lacquer paint, I changed the stone on the [custom] bar, I did mirrored inset ceilings... [and] all my light fixtures are shipped in from Europe or different show rooms that are vintage lighting stores in New York City."
Even after adding all of the custom details, Tracy revealed she spent "roughly $50,000" to get the home ready to put on the market. "I created a space that works for me, but I have to paint, I have to pull out personal items, bring in stagers. I mean, you name it, I'm going to do it," she said. "Based on the comps, this deserves top dollar, but in order to get that, it needs to be perfect."
According to Variety, the home was sold after less than three months on the market for about $19.7 million. Tracy has wasted no time putting her personal touch on her new home, as displayed by her sitting room that boasts an orange velvet sectional, a huge zebra-patterned ottoman, and an eye-catching piece of wall art.
