Nourmand & Associates


The next generation builds on forty years of heritage.

“It takes 20 years to build a reputation and 5 minutes to ruin it ” – Warren Buffett

When Nourmand & Associates opened its doors in 1976, Los Angeles real estate was a personality-driven business. It was a time when hanging your name on the door meant that you’d always do the right thing. In fact, the most successful brokerages boldly carried the names of their prominent owners such as John Douglas, Fred Sands, and Mike Silverman. But over three decades of corporate takeovers, buyouts, and a fiercely competitive market, only one of these companies remains: Nourmand & Associates.

Longevity Is No Accident

At the heart of Nourmand & Associates’ success is family. While most brokerages can hide behind a conglomerate’s brand or a name devised in a marketing agency’s conference room, this isn’t an option for us. At Nourmand & Associates, our name is our brand. And we wouldn’t have it any other way. Since we’ve always privately owned the company, our buyers and sellers have unlimited access to our executive management team.

“All of Nourmand & Associates’ clients know that I’m here to meet their needs. As a result, they reach out to me all the time,” says Michael Nourmand, company president and the founder’s son. Our client-centered approach explains why we’re the trusted advisor to our city’s top business managers and attorneys who represent LA’s highest profile residents. Nourmand & Associates’ local expertise and deep community roots are what separate us from the flood of startups backed by investors of sometimes unknown origin. In addition, we make our decisions locally, not in boardrooms located across the country. The absence of corporate red tape allows us to swiftly adapt to our local market. For example, we designed the new Nourmand & Associates iPad presentation by taking direct input from our clients and agents. But our company’s reach extends globally as well. Our clients benefit from our membership in Leading Real Estate Companies of the World®, which is a worldwide network of 4,600 top offices. As a result, our listings have sold to high net worth international buyers representing countries such as China, Indonesia, Dubai, Belgium, the Netherlands and Iran.

While Other Firms Serve Shareholders, Nourmand & Associates Serves You

“Our company is like a family heirloom,” says Michael Nourmand. “We have clients that span three successive generations.” Nourmand & Associates is built on trust that we’ve earned through decades of exceptional client service. Meanwhile, today’s real estate corporations are obligated to meet their investor’s short-term earnings demands. This investor-centric model often results in a “close the deal at all costs” attitude that neglects the long term needs of clients.

For 40 years, we’ve risen above the relentless competition by maintaining the highest ethical standards and an unparalleled commitment to community. If you’re planning to sell your home, call us today for a confidential meeting, and experience what it means to be part of the Nourmand & Associates family.
