Sometimes the cobbler needs new shoes and sometimes one of the country’s most successful real estate brokers has trouble off-loading his own home, even if it’s one of the most recognizable houses in reality TV history.
After almost three and a half years on and off the market at a variety of prices that fluctuated between $5.65 million and $6.995 million, Platinum Triangle real estate powerhouse Mauricio Umansky, co-founder and co-owner of The Agency, and “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” OG star Kyle Richards have finally sold their former home in L.A.’s Bel Air neighborhood. The $6.1 million sale price is a good chunk under its final asking price of $6.495 million but, more importantly, it’s exactly twice the $3.05 million the couple paid eleven years ago.
The new owner, we have it on unimpeachable authority, is money manifesting guru Amanda Frances, a 30-something year old entrepreneur and tireless go-getter who promotes herself as a “Self-made multimillionaire. Thought Leader. Best Selling author. Repetitive unrealistic goal achiever. Podcaster. Money Queen.” She also describes herself on other online platforms as a “business mentor,” “spiritual boss lady,” and “world-renowned thought leader on financial empowerment for women” who promotes her ideas and advice (and earns heaps of money) via fee-based online self-empowerment courses (i.e. “Decoding Fame” and “Turning Shit into Gold”), pricey private life coaching sessions, a book called “Rich as F*ck”, a podcast called “And She Rises,” and all sorts of free content across her various social media channels.
Celebrity real estate watchers and Housewives fans know well the saga of Kyle and Mauricio’s Bel Air home, which they leased out in past years, most recently, last year, to fellow “RHOBH” cast member Sutton Stracke, at about $25,000 per month, while she renovated a home she’d recently purchased.
