Reaching over $1 billion in sales over the last eight years, Mary Ann Osborn has secured her position as a leading broker in Century City and Los Angeles.
Through her extensive knowledge of the market and preconstruction projects, she offers her clients a smooth and satisfactory transaction, from beginning to end. Her market knowledge, professionalism, level of integrity, and customer service qualify her as a broker of choice for new luxury condominiums in Century City. Osborn’s interpersonal skills and tactful approach has been validated by the particular demands of servicing an elite clientele.
She has been quoted in Forbes, The Wall Street Journal, the Los Angeles Times, and Westside Today, among others.
She was the director of sales for The Century, a 42-story masterpiece designed by world-renowned Robert A.M. Stern Architects and developed by The Related Companies as their flagship entry into the West Coast.
With the Los Angeles population crossing four million and the ever-increasing traffic, the ideal of a private, gated villa on a hill has lost its unrivaled appeal. Osborn helped deliver Related’s East Coast model of providing turnkey homes with all the conveniences of a five-star hotel as an attractive alternative.
The Century is currently sold out, with buyers including Candy Spelling. She was one of the first buyers, picking up a penthouse before the building was completed for $34.8 million. Other celebrity residents, including Paula Abdul, Elizabeth Berkley, and Cheryl Cole, have followed suit. The stars are among a growing L.A.-based population expecting amenity-heavy and worry-free living. “They are looking for a turnkey home; they want the conveniences,” Osborn told Forbes. “Luxury high-rise is estate living vertically—you’re keeping or enhancing their standard of living with their gated estates.”
Osborn coordinates and collaborates with development, architects, construction staff, designers, attorneys, advertisers, public relations firms, web designers, real estate brokerage community, and the management team. With over 25 years of experience, she lends considerable expertise to the research, analyses, and pricing of potential residential sales acquisitions. She advises from concept to completion, which includes branding, strategic positioning, demographic research, presales, product absorption and release, pricing, floor plans, unit mix, promotional activities, customer outreach and retention, and sales staffing. She is directly responsible for the training, supervision, and management of various property development teams.
