The "aggressive pricing" in the area and local market conditions helped sway the seller's decision, Jonathan says. 

The buyer is a private LLC that is very active on the Westside, including in Brentwood and Santa Monica, he says.

Jonathan, along with Investment Real Estate Associates SVP Clark Everitt and SVP William Everitt repped both the buyer and the seller.
