    Real Estate

Real estate agent Marilyn Spiegel and broker associate Gil Spiegel have a combined experience of nearly 50 years assisting buyers and sellers of residential properties all over Los Angeles. 

Gil, originally from Philadelphia, and Marilyn, a Chicago native, were college sweethearts and both had successful careers before moving to L.A. and joining Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices more than 17 years ago.


Why is real estate such a profitable, stable market in this country?

“We believe investing in real estate can be one of the best ways to accumulate wealth. Real estate is the safest investment you can make because it is secured by the asset itself: the home. It consistently increases in value over time and outperforms other investments. It isn’t as vulnerable to short-term fluctuations as the stock market. Homeowners may deduct both mortgage interest and property tax payments as well as certain other expenses from their federal income tax if they itemize their deductions.”


What are you and your agency known for?

“Berkshire Hathaway and its leader Warren Buffett have a worldwide reputation for financial stability and longevity. And so do we! We are also known by the company we keep; we have made many friends of numerous agents over the years. Having good working relationships with other agents is advantageous when presenting offers. In multiple-offer scenarios, we are often successful in procuring the winning offer because other agents want to work with us.”


What do you love about your job? 

“We love that we have the opportunity to help guide our clients through one of their largest investments. We get great satisfaction knowing that we helped make an impact on our clients’ and their families’ lives. We are appreciative of the many clients we have helped who have become our friends over the years and have recommended us to their friends and families. It’s gratifying to have the next generation of families we have helped reach out to us for their real estate needs.”


What relocation assistance do you offer?

“We put on our tour guide hats and drive our clients around the areas they are interested in seeing. We prepare illustrated buyer tours with lists of local attractions, schools, places of worship, shopping and entertainment venues. We can also do this virtually through Zoom. We refer our clients to our trusted resources such as mortgage brokers, movers, handymen, painters, plumbers, landscapers, electricians, interior designers and other tradespeople.”
