Adam Sheldon Seid

Buyer's Agent

Adam Sheldon Seid

Adam’s start in real estate is a natural progression from his experience in the world of entertainment aligned with his passion and commitment to the community. Before his real estate career, Adam was a managing partner representing talent for over 15 years. Being able to draw on a large network of celebrity clientele he created relationships with nightclubs and casinos managing their celebrity events. He would hone a concept then leverage personal relationships to find cost-effective ways to enhance branding and create “relevance in the marketplace.”

This collaborative work ethic comes naturally to Adam, allowing him to exercise his unwavering dedication to community service and urban planning. He became the organizer and Director of “Grass Roots Organization for Urban Progress.” This is his continued passion, a project that involves training, coaching, and motivating community empowerment and mentorships. Engaging with local residents, nonprofits, and governmental agencies to address equity concerns in the face of neighborhood change and gentrification fuels Adam’s interests and provides a breadth of expertise. Not only is he interested in finding the right home for his clients, but is passionate about protecting the community around it for the common good.

You’ll often hear Adam talk about finding the right neighborhood experience for his buyers. “I enjoy taking my clients through the home buying journey and educating them what urban planning and laws will help them with the biggest investment of their life.” After work, Adam is typically harvesting vegetables with his family and neighbors at his local community garden.

Adam was the best agent we could've asked for. Always on it. So helpful. Never had to chase him. He was always providing us…with great houses to look at and was quick to find out more for any house we scoped on one of the many mls related sights. He really found us our dream home when we thought for sure we wouldn't be able to find it on the west side. Adam was a masterful negotiator and helped us get the house at the best price possible. He also held our hand so carefully in every step of the way. Even after we bought the house, he continues to help us to make sure the house is being handled in the best way possible. Truly, an amazing agent and I can't recommend him highly enough!

We met quite a few real estate agents in the process of buying our first home - all of them clearly more interested in closing than listening to…our needs. Adam is not the traditional estate agent : he makes the entire process feels like you’re doing it with a trusted friend who has immense knowledge about buying homes. He truly listened, and genuinely wanted to know more about us, our family, our story. He prepared us, educated us on what was going to happen before it did, always using real life examples. This is huge because it made us feel confident & safe during the entire process. He was proactive but not intrusive, self-confident but not pushy, providing multiple solutions to each challenge - not imposing, always available when we needed him., before AND after closing. We would give him 6 stars if it was possible and can’t wait to buy another home with him in a few years !

I just bought a condo with Adam as my fearless negotiator. He's smart, savvy, knowledgeable, experienced, easy to work with, honest, patient and makes what could be a…stressful process a very easy one. In fact, the first condo he showed me ended up being the one I bought after he patiently showed me many, many others. He was always by my side supporting me and made everything I needed happen. He's all around fabulous! Hire him as your realtor. You won't regret it.

We met Adam almost two years ago when we moved to LA. We were interested in buying a home but at the time we needed to rent. So…he found us a beautiful rental in Venice. 1.5 years later we were ready to buy and the whole process was simply amazing. From his personal warm honest approach, plus the attention to every detail, the whole experience was so easy, and enjoyable!!! I highly highly recommend working with him.

I clicked on a Zillow link, received a callback from Adam, and asked could I see a house in the next 45mins to an hour. He made that…happen and ever since we were on a magical memorable ride through closure. I would look no further than Adam--he is thorough, honest, knowledgeable, and will go above and beyond for his clients. I can't even call him an agent anymore because he has become a friend, and I'm truly grateful we were paired with him for our buying experience. Adam is the man!

I stared looking for houses with Adam 7 weeks after having a baby. Adam would come pick us up at our house with baby in tow and drive…us to each property showing. If there was a property I wanted to see, he arranged for us to see it ASAP. We were living on the west side and wanted to move the east side. In not much time at all, Adam found our perfect home! There were multiple offers and Adam helped us put together the winning offer! Now we own our first home. As first time buyers, Adam helped us through each and every step of the process with such patience, generosity and care. I can’t recommend Adam enough! He is the best realtor and a wonderful person

I was looking for an off-market single family home and Adam worked hard to find me the perfect fit to my investment criteria. He was very patient throughout…the process and answered any question that I had. It was a very nuanced deal, and I appreciated the fact that Adam worked hard to ensure that I was protected throughout the deal. Whether casually, or business related, it's always a pleasure to work with Adam!

Adam is a superb realtor. He is extremely knowledgeable about the Los Angeles market and incredibly patient. What impressed us most about Adam was the level…of thoughtfulness he put into the homes he showed us and the personalized service he provided. We were house hunting for several months, and every week Adam would send us an email with new listings for us to consider, along with a paragraph for each listing describing why he thought the listing met our search criteria as well as any additional information he had about the listings. Adam actively solicited our feedback on each listing we saw so he could get a better sense of exactly what we were looking for.

Adam ended up finding us a perfect home and was our rock throughout a stressful bidding war and price negotiations, inspections, escrow and closing. He is straightforward, has a calm demeanor, and was immediately responsive to our many late night texts and frantic emails. In short, he was exactly what we needed as first time home buyers. We would enthusiastically recommend Adam to anyone looking to buy a home.

We had a great experience working with Adam buying our first home. As first-time home buyers we had A LOT of questions and really were starting from…square one. Adam was very patient with us and guided us through the whole process. He also made a great recommendation of someone to work with for our loan. At first we really didn't know what we wanted and Adam showed us everything from move-in-ready homes, fixer uppers, town houses, condos, etc. In the end we fell in love with a condo and Adam helped us beat out multiple offers (including an all-cash offer). Overall great experience and we couldn't have been happier!

My fiance and I just purchased our home and Adam was amazing to work with the entire time. He consistently met up with us to show us different…properties, was always willing to give us a call and helped answer any questions we might have. As first-time homebuyers, we had a lot of questions and needed all the help we could find. Adam was able to connect us with his contacts to close escrow as fast a possible. I'd recommend using Adam for any type of real estate deal. He is a great person and an amazing person to work with. Thanks once again for all your help Adam!

As first time home buyers, we had a lot of questions. Adam was patient and diligent in answering our questions and getting us the information we needed. …

Adam has a casual style and felt “on” constantly, despite his busy schedule. He was quick to check in on us and never more than a text or phone call away at any time during the process. Throughout the process, we probably spent hours on the phone with Adam.

Once the house was in escrow, Adam really shined. He arranged all of the inspections promptly and managed the process seamlessly. When issues arose with the appraisal, Adam negotiated diligently for us to bring the price in line.

There isn’t a realtor alive who Adam can’t charm, a great asset in a competitive market like LA and he works hard for his clients.

First and foremost, Adam is a consummate professional.
Adam understood our needs and always took a very personal interest in helping us.
We had been looking at a…
specific complex, and it took a year for the perfect unit to come on the market. He had the patience and sticktoitiveness to stay on top of every new listings in that complex, and, because of his diligence, we were able to be the first to view any new properties as they came on the market.
He stayed in contact with us constantly and vowed to find us the perfect unit, and so he did!
He handled the sale details from start to finish like a caring family member. We felt he totally had our best interests at heart and made sure that we were completely happy and satisfied. We are!
On a side note, Adam is a really cute nice guy, straight forward and fun. He is dedicated to his career and enjoys what he does. You are in good hands with Adam.
Thank you,
Nina and Ron Harris

Adam was fantastic! From the get go, he was responsive to our ever changing wishlist and first time buyer jitters. Adam was able to efficiently communicate the…pros and cons of various properties across different neighborhoods. Ultimately, Adam helped us close on a duplex in Santa Monica with his ninja-like negotiating. As an experienced agent working with a reputable brokerage, Adam had the contacts to efficiently coordinate the closing process and the patience to walk us through all the closing contingencies. We are ecstatic and would recommend Adam to all!

We knew Adam was a good guy when we arrived to an open house 10 minutes late and he still showed it to us. By the time we…walked to the back of the house we knew we wanted to make an offer, and Adam was with us the whole way. Despite the hiccups that are inevitable with any real estate transaction Adam went out of his way to make sure we were satisfied with the outcome. He really protected us as buyers and made sure we were always in the loop.
Even after we closed, he was still checking in on us.
It’s great to have a buyer’s agent who knows what he’s doing, and it’s even better to have one who’s also fun to hang out with. Adam is both.

After over 2.5 years of searching for properties, Adam was instrumental in closing the deal in a house I purchased in Mar Vista, an exceedingly "hot market" area.… The moment I met Adam, there was an immediate connection; he was forthcoming, trustworthy and knowledgeable about the real estate market. As I got to know Adam better during my purchase, he exceeded my expectations with his professionalism and immediate attention to my needs. I also never lost trust in him and knew that I was getting honest information throughout which was most important to me. Aside from being an excellent and experienced agent, Adam is a genuinely good guy; he is caring, compassionate and kind. As happy as I am about purchasing my first home, I am grateful for having met Adam in the process and would highly recommend him.
