If real estate agents are distinguished both by their success with clients and by their reputation, then Ernie is in a class all his own. He is a consistent top producer in the fiercely competitive Los Angeles Westside marketplace, and his personal approach has earned him the respect of his clients and peers.

“I am completely and personally involved with all facets of representing my clients and their properties,” Carswell says. “Nothing is left to chance.”

As any great agent will tell you, strategy is a key component of success. However, Carswell takes a different approach.

Strategy is a key component of  my guidance to clients as I study human behavior and particularly body language, not the spoken word as much. People communicate much more through their actions than their words. Many agents hear words and ignore or are unaware of the nonverbal communications constantly in play.”

“People communicate much more through their actions than their words.”

Ernie prides himself on being directly involved with all aspects of a sale or purchase, and with the clients themselves. “I work tirelessly and put forth a lot of effort to make sure my clients’ properties get seen by the right buyers,” he says. “I love what I do and share it willingly with others, other consumers and other agents.”

This hands-on method has paid off — his rate of successful closings is nearly 95 percent.

As someone who represents an impressive roster of clients, including Fortune 500 CEOs, professional entertainers, top studio executives, attorneys, government officials, ambassadors and foreign dignitaries, Carswell is well-versed in luxury. “Luxury isn’t something that is purchased, but perceived. It isn’t available by price tag; it’s summoned by emotion.

The experience of walking into a welcoming estate, slipping into a leather seat in front of a burl wood dashboard, or touching a cashmere blanket — these are the signals of luxury.”

With luxury real estate constantly surpassing expectations and breaking the mold, what should we look forward to in the future? “We should expect more of the same in the high-end residential marketplace, except there will be a broken ceiling for pricing. Gone are the days of pricing limits or even direct comparables. World moguls want to stake their claim to power by commissioning homes that are beyond imagination, both in price and in concept. Witness the first billion dollar house in Mumbai, or the half-billion dollar estate being currently being built in Bel Air.”

Join Ernie Carswell at Luxury Connect on Oct. 22, where he’ll be sharing his expertise and knowledge on the topic of luxury real estate.
