LA Connection Property Blog: Candy Spelling tells how she chose her Realtor

Candy Spelling tells how she chose her Realtor

In August 2008 I blogged about Candy Spelling and her $150 Million Mansion ("The Manor") in Holmby Hills, Los Angeles.

Now that Mrs. Spelling has purchased a $47 Million, 16,000 sq ft penthouse in Century City, she is selling the home she lived in with her late husband, Aaron Spelling.

It was interesting to read how she chose a Realtor to list her property ....

Candy Spelling told The Associated Press that "she let her dog Madison, a soft-coated Wheaten Terrier, help pick out the best real estate agent for the task. She had her security bring the dog into the room every time she met one of the candidate agents and watched how the dog reacted. If Madison didn't like them, Spelling crossed them off the list."

Prospective buyers won't have to worry about passing such scrutiny, Spelling joked.

Hmmm, maybe we should carry a dog biscuit in our pocket.....

Bacon cologne would have nailed it.

Aloha Stewart,

I wonder what other decisions are left to the pooch? Bacon, bacon, bacon, bacon I smell bacon!

I knew it would pay off to be a dog person... especially in Holmby Hills!;)  Does this mean that Candy Spelling's high-rise condo in Century City is complete???

Wow, I wonder how she'll choose her home inspector? I'm going out to pick up some of that "bacon cologne" that Claude was talking about, just in case!
