With over a decade and a half of success, Nina Kurtz is one of the most trusted agents in the competitive world of Los Angeles real estate—and it’s not hard to see why. As a lifelong local, Nina has an encyclopedic knowledge of (not to mention an unparalleled passion for) the communities she serves. There’s nothing she loves more than introducing people to the combination of breathtaking natural beauty that the Santa Monica Mountains provide and the unique urban amenities available in the city’s metropolitan hotspots.
Nina first took an interest in real estate while working for agents and attorneys who specialized in contract law. Fascinated by the process, she decided to take the plunge and get her own license, entering the industry as a Realtor in 2008. Nina quickly established herself as an elite agent, ranking in the top 10 at her previous brokerage affiliation in Malibu in 2018. In 2019, Nina made a move to Compass, where she currently works to provide her clients with cutting-edge real estate technology, extensive concierge services, and creative strategies.
Nina has successfully represented and sold some of the most notable architectural estates in and around the Topanga Canyon area (e.g., Harry Gesner, AIA, Charles DuBois, AIA, Bob Bates, AIA, Bill Adams, AIA, etc) and consistently attracts a clientele that appreciates informed environmental design. Along with her eye for design and passion for architecture, her keen negotiation prowess and business savvy make her an invaluable asset and advocate for her clients. Nina’s vast network also proves beneficial, regularly providing access to off-market properties. Equally strong with the financial, logistical, and aesthetic sides of the process, Nina is able to offer her clients a truly holistic approach, focusing on the clients’ needs long-term rather than the immediate goal.
In addition to her diverse skill set, Nina prides herself on bringing compassion, enthusiasm, and positivity to every interaction. She is committed to full transparency with her clients, never sacrificing her integrity or accessibility. Whether she’s showing an artist a beachfront cottage in Malibu or helping a high-powered executive sell their gated estate in Calabasas, you can count on Nina to give each transaction 110%.
Nina has accumulated an impressive list of accolades over the years, including earning the Leading Edge Award year after year and placing in the top 1% of Realtors nationwide at her previous broker affiliation in 2018, and completing over $55 million in sales volume from 2018 to 2021 year-to-date. She represented the highest sale in Topanga Canyon by an individual agent in 2021 so far. Nina’s proudest achievement, however, is having established a reputation for being hardworking and trustworthy, building a clientele based on referrals and repeat clients.
When Nina isn’t working, you can often find her volunteering with organizations that specialize in educating and empowering local youth as well as spending time with her family. Favorite activities include exploring Los Angeles’ sublime culinary scene and getting out into nature.
Nina's wealth of knowledge about the area has provided her with an innate ability in finding homes that marry her clients’ financial and lifestyle goals for over a decade of success in real estate.
