Every year, nohoartsdistrict.com does an article on a business that we feel is a perfect match to the NoHo Arts District. The business must be passionate about the arts, love NoHo and want to do their part in making NoHo the best it can be. The 2015 Award goes to Luanne Prima, owner of Prima Properties Real Estate.
Luanne grew up in Toluca Lake with her musical legend parents, Louis Prima and Keely Smith. Louis Prima was known as the King of Swing riding the musical trends of his time, starting with his New Orleans style jazz band then swing combo in the 1930s, a big band in the 1940s, a Vegas lounge act in the 1950s. Keely, a great jazz and pop vocalist in her own right enjoyed popularity in the 1950s and 1960s singing with the great Frank Sinatra and Tony Bennett.
Luanne loves the arts, especially dance, and is entrenching herself in NoHo’s artistic and playful vibe. She has quickly becoming NoHo’s “Go to Broker” for two reasons.
1. She has taken the time to know every square inch of NoHo and surrounding areas such as Toluca Woods, Valley Village, Toluca Lake, etc. because as Luanne puts it “When a person buys a home, they are buying a lifestyle not just a house.”
2. She loves artists and has created an opportunity for artists to live their dream and pay the rent/mortgage. Luanne is offering artists interested in becoming a real estate agent to work under her broker firm and a chance to pick the hours they work without the fear of losing their job when going on an audition or free to go on tour.
Luanne has been in real estate for more than 20 years and her extensive knowledge goes from the California beach areas to here. She knows the importance of giving good information to her client and making sure the house/neighborhood is a match for the buyer. What I especially like about Luanne is that after the sale of a house, that buyer or seller still has her attention making sure that they are thoroughly orientated to her new neighborhood. She implements “A Client Appreciation Program” for all her clients as she says, “The relationship has just begun after the closing.”
Since it is a great time to buy a home…interest rates are low….and apartment rents are just about the same price as a mortgage, think about becoming a homeowner. If the answer is yes, the first step is to see Luanne, our NoHo “Go to Broker.”
Stay tuned for The “Go To Broker” on the streets series of videos with information about real estate and areas in general.
