Our Approach

Straight talk.

We provide informed and honest dialogue about the local market, your properties, acquisition candidates, deal process expectations, and overall portfolio strategy.  

In-depth analysis.

We leverage over 20 years of investment experience to produce institutional-quality financial analysis for all property sales, acquisitions, and development opportunities.

The best platform.

The #1 residential brokerage in Los Angeles, California, and the U.S., COMPASS has built a cutting-edge platform of top agents (15,000+) and technology. 

Exceptional execution. 

We sweat the details, anticipate the challenges, consistently communicate, engineer creative solutions, and work to over-deliver on every engagement.

Rendered with kindness. 

We hustle hard and play to win, but always try to keep it fun, friendly, and positive. We believe life is too short to work with unpleasant people.

Single Family Homes

Given the asset values in prime areas, representation of single family homes in Southern California requires unparalleled levels of expertise, speed and efficiency. The Blankenship Group brings our institutional standard to our advisory of homes and condominiums for primary residences, vacation, and rental properties. We combine our execution with a deep passion for and knowledge of living in Los Angeles and the Mountain Communities of the Tejon Pass.


Our residential clients benefit from the full capabilities of Compass’ cutting-edge marketing and transactional platform, as well as unmatched access to elite on and off-market residential properties, many exclusive to our firm.


New Development

We work closely with emerging and experienced developers to catalyze opportunities for the ground-up construction or redevelopment of condominiums, multi-family, and luxury spec homes. 


From site sourcing to the in-depth research and analysis of each opportunity, we approach every project through the eyes of a developer and their capital partners. Our consistent activities provide clients with highly-vetted deal flow that offers realistic budgets, timelines, and resale projections, as well as the ultimate platform to maximize value at exit.

Multi-Family Properties

We specialize in the advisory and representation of multi-family properties across California.  


For sellers, we provide a comprehensive analysis of similar properties in the market and leverage Compass’ industry-leading global marketing platform to find the ideal buyer and achieve top dollar, in both public offerings and off-market transactions. 


For buyers, we provide extensive sourcing and due diligence support, starting with institutional-quality projections of income, cash flow, and ROI. We combine these projections with comparable sales analysis, expert negotiation skills, careful physical inspections, and complete transaction support to help our clients make informed decisions, win competitive deals, and actually enjoy the process.


1031 Exchanges

Your upleg is our obsession. We know that time is of the essence. When we are engaged to find a replacement property, we work tirelessly to identify and close the perfect upleg investment within the required timeframes. 


We search on and off-market and tap our large network of other brokers and property owners - all so we can offer the greatest variety of choices that fit your exchange needs. These upleg options are always presented with our custom analysis and comparison to help you make the right decision for your portfolio. 

What Our Clients Say

"Lauren and Allen go above and beyond to ensure that their client is totally comfortable and satisfied with their real estate decisions. This is because they are transparent and honest about their opinions and recommendations and quick to understand their clients requirements. They have a very  strong work ethic and their response to any request is instantaneous. Allen's strong financial and analytical skills are highly complemented by Lauren's marketing abilities and great people skills making them an outstanding team to work with. I was very happy with the service provided and would not hesitate to recommend them wholeheartedly to anyone in the market for purchasing or selling real estate." - C.T. & G.H. (Multi-family Advisory)

"We cannot recommend Lauren and Allen highly enough! They studiously listened to our priorities, presented us with a thoughtfully curated selection of listings, made themselves constantly available for house visitations and assessments, provided insights and advice on the financial potential for  each property, and responded to any request or question immediately. Most importantly, they negotiated an incredible deal on a dream home for far below list price and guided two first time homebuyers through every step of the process. They made the whole experience not just pleasant but fun, and we ultimately got a great deal as a result of their expertise!" - A.M.J. & F.R. (Single Family Advisory)

Simply AMAZING!! Allen and Lauren were everything you could want as a buyer. They were responsive, thorough, patient, knowledgeable and adept/realistic about negotiation. We had been through several realtors until we found Allen and Lauren and could not have asked for more. We hope to live in our home for a long long time, but when it’s time to look or sell we know exactly who we’re going to! - G.P. & K.C. (Single Family Advisory)
