Los Angeles Westside native with over a billion dollars sold in residential real estate, David Solomon consistently ranks in the Wall Street Journal's annual list of top 250 agents in the United States. In 2019, his sales topped $170,000,000 ranking him one of the top producing agents at his firm, Douglas Elliman. Having recently joined Douglas Elliman, coming from a position as partner at The Agency, David at the time had set out to join an industry-disrupting brokerage that would redefine the business of real estate. Prior to The Agency's inception in 2011, David had spent nearly a decade at Prudential California Realty, which later became Berkshire Hathaway, and was often ranked in the top 10 in the entire company.
As an early adopter of technology, web, video, social media, and a keen eye for real estate marketing, David exponentially grew his business year-over-year, even when the market was seemingly collapsing in the 2008 downturn. He prides his business in being able to deliver world-class marketing with aggressive, but delicate sales and negotiation skills, white-glove service, and handling every transaction and client with the utmost discretion. A natural born sales person with a true passion for people, his clients often become friends for life. David's clients are comprised of a wide variety of fields from top tech entrepreneurs, celebrities, athletes, entertainment execs, business moguls, foreign investors, and more.
Having grown up in the business and now spending nearly 15 years in it himself, David has seen the ups and downs of different markets. Beyond just selling real estate for clients, he has bought, designed, built, and sold numerous properties, and continues to own and rent out a handful of prime coastal properties. David's biggest passions aside from family, include surfing, traveling, photography, art, design, and architecture. When not working, he can often be found spending time with his family, and his favorite activity is snowboarding with his seven-year-old son Greyson when time permits.

Since the partnership, Anna & David have been exponentially growing their business year-over-year, even when the market was seemingly collapsing in the 2008 downturn. Proven expert buying and selling strategies, negotiations expertise, professionalism and integrity are their hallmarks.

A native Angeleno, Jessica Solomon’s introduction to the Westside’s real estate scene came early and became a family affair. She began accompanying her mother, Anna Solomon, to showings when she was still a child, listening to the client calls (on every iteration of briefcase phone, car phone, mobile phone, cell phone) and seeing all that needed to happen to get the deal done. Later, when her brother David began his career in real estate, she saw the brand he envisioned building and her desire to be a part of that took root.
After studying Business Management Economics and Accounting at UC Santa Cruz, Jessica worked as an accountant before returning to L.A.’s FIDM to study apparel manufacturing, international manufacturing and product development. During her decade in the fashion industry, Jessica designed and operated her own apparel company and went on to consult with major labels, A-list athletes and musicians, helping them develop and expand their brands. Now, Jessica is applying her diverse business acumen and a lifetime of up-close experience with L.A.’s real estate landscape to her role at Douglas Elliman's Brentwood office alongside powerhouses David & Anna Solomon.
Deeply sensitive to the financial commitment clients make when they choose a home, Jessica specializes in guiding first-time buyers through the market and intuitively understands the challenging (and invigorating) aspects of the process. Having travelled the world and lived on both coasts she can quickly identify and help prioritize the desires of clients who are relocating to help them settle on the perfect area and home. In her spare time, Jessica enjoys horseback riding, assisting her fiancé with his films and playing board games while sipping wine at Zinqué in Venice.
