Leonard Rabinowitz: Broker, Hilton & Hyland

During his extensive tenure, Leonard Rabinowitz has participated in over $250 million in real estate transactions. Bringing a wealth of regional expertise in both commercial and high‐end residential real estate to Hilton & Hyland, he has built and sold numerous 14,000-square-foot homes in the Beverly Hills, Malibu, and Aspen areas. In addition, Leonard has developed several industrial facilities in Downtown Los Angeles, including the notable purchase, rehabilitation and sale of the May Corp warehouse, achieving a record price per square foot sale.

Leonard’s affinity for real estate began with his first project – the acquisition and rehab of a Fifth Avenue Olympic Tower Condominium. Upon completion, the unit graced the cover of Architectural Digest and became a record sale in the luxury building. With a diverse career background, Leonard brings unrivaled market knowledge, integrity, and passion to Hilton & Hyland. As Co-Founder of the Carole Little® fashion brand, Leonard was able to hone his exceptional negotiating skills which allowed him to earn over $300 million in annual revenue before selling it. Between co‐founding CL Cinema Line Films and acting as  Producer on several films, including the blockbuster “AnacondA,” he also managed to effortlessly build an exceptional roster of contacts, giving him the inestimable skill of working with high-profile clientele and various personalities.

His proudest achievement is having donated and repurposed one of his DTLA buildings and multi‐acre sites into a Charter School for children, Pre‐K through 12. Today, the school serves 1,850 students. Its elementary school was named School of the Year by Time Magazine, and its Wallis Annenberg High School has a graduation rate of over 90%, with a like amount going onto higher education. The Los Angeles Times, in a frontpage story, called this the largest private gift ever to a Charter School. Together with his real estate partner, Jack Friedkin, the duo has managed to raise over $48 million for charity.

What do you love most about Your City?

The changes I see taking place.  Los Angeles has become an internationally desired destination and place to have a home.  The driving forces being the changes are a thriving DTLA, The Arts Scene, our World Class Restaurants and of course the Weather.

Favorite breakfast meal & restaurant?

The Counter at the Beverly Hills Hotel with orange juice squeezed right before your eyes served with pretty much anything your heart desires.  Or in the Alley on Cañon at EuroCafe with the best espresso in the city.

What are you doing at:

6:00 AM –    Swimming laps.  1,000 meters gets the day started.

10:00 AM - In the office.  Checking in with clients, seeing what’s new on the market and sold, collaborating on our listings with business partner Jack Friedkin, arranging for showings, proof reading ads, responding to agent requests.   

12:00 PM - Favorite Power Lunch spot/meal?   

Italian, Italian, Italian.  iL’Pastaio,  Via Alloro and mixing up sometimes with a bit of `Greek Mediterranean at  Avra.

7:00 PM -   Checking and updating social media,  reviewing and responding to issues within the two Boards I am on, reviewing e-mails.    Thereafter, cuddle Netflix time with my wife.  

11:00 PM -   Hopefully, sleeping.

What drink do you need to get through the day and at the end (and how many)?   doppio espresso macchiato.  Once with breakfast and once with lunch.  At the end of the day a glass of Pomerol.  

Most used App/Favorite Instagram Account?

App:  Facebook Workplace    Instagram Account:  HiltonHyland

What should everyone try at least once?

Giving back with your time and money. For me it’s Inner City Education.    

Where do you enjoy getting lost?

I’m a city boy.  I love wandering in New York, London or Paris.
