Last year, powerhouse realtor-turned-reality TV star Tracy Tutor — the first female cast member on Bravo’s “Million Dollar Listing: Los Angeles” — hit the proverbial jackpot, selling her Brentwood marital home in an all-cash, nearly $20 million deal to a young couple from Silicon Valley. Now the famously frank agent has taken her winnings and downsized, in a manner of speaking, shelling out about $8.2 million for an estate in the searingly expensive Beverly Hills Flats neighborhood.
Tutor, who’s also the elder daughter of construction kingpin Ron Tutor, now lays claim to a 1920s house with more than 5,200 square feet of interior space. The Spanish Colonial Revival has already been extensively renovated, with a showcase-worthy array of ebony hardwood floors and creamy white walls — ideal for an art collection — though chances are Tutor will put her own decorative spin on the place, perhaps drawing inspiration from the boldly vivid color scheme and maximalist designs seen in her previous home.
The property last sold for $8.45 million in 2019, meaning the sellers — Microsoft “lottery winner” Chris Peters and his longtime wife June — took a $250,000 loss on the transfer to Tutor, before taxes, closing costs, and two years of upkeep. They’re clearly not hurting in the financial department, however; the couple recently paid $4.2 million for a former home of Marlon Brando perched above the Sunset Strip, and last year they sold their celeb-pedigreed Bel Air estate for $16.4 million.
And this particular Beverly Hills deal was kept all in the “Million Dollar Listing” family. Josh Flagg of Rodeo Realty held the listing; Tutor, who’s with Douglas Elliman, naturally repped herself in the purchase.
