New Headquarters of Ring Begins to Take Shape in Hawthorne

A year after announcing plans to relocate to Hawthorne, the new headquarters of Amazon subsidiary Ring is taking shape at 12515 Cerise Avenue.

The maker of video doorbells, which Amazon reportedly purchased for $1 billion, will have 250 employees in the 62,000-square-foot facility – a former warehouse.

Architecture firm M-Rad is designing the space, which will include a gland atrium with clearance for 30-foot-tall trees.

The project is being developed by Vella Group, a New York-based real estate firm that is partnering on a Bjarke Ingels-designed tower project planned in the Arts District.

Just east of the Ring facility at the intersection of Crenshaw and El Segundo Boulevards, the Dinerstein Cos. has broken ground on a 230-unit apartment complex.

Ring is one of several Amazon-owned companies in the Los Angeles area. The bulk of the e-commerce giant’s local operations are currently headquartered in Santa Monica, but are gradually relocating east to the expanding Culver Studios campus.

I offer my clients personalized service based on integrity backed up by a track record of success. I bring a great balance of creative and analytical skill sets while applying an intuitive and assertive approach, as each opportunity is unique.”

How did you become so good at what you do?

“Since I was a child growing up in El Segundo, I was naturally drawn to the changing built environment. I was fascinated by new construction and how over the years certain areas transitioned more quickly than others. Once I decided real estate was my calling, I already had a jump-start on the Westside and South Bay markets. By furthering my education with a boots-on-theground approach, I have become an expert in my field.”

Real estate is highly competitive; how do you maintain a code of ethics?

“Disclosure is non-negotiable. Transparency is vital. In this highly competitive, saturated market the temptation to make a deal may give way to compromises by some agents. I am keen on building relationships that support future recommendations and referrals. I am only as credible as my last deal, so my ethical standing is all I have at the end of each day.”

What has been the highlight of your career so far?

“The relationships I have built with so many great people over these past 12 years. Great relationships have forged the trust needed to grow into additional business and investment opportunities. These in turn have resulted in a growing network of valued clients.”

How do you manage volatility in the market?

“Are you buying a home to live in or investing in residential or commercial property? Each class of real estate offers different methods to reach your goal. I provide added value to my clients by helping them define their goals, protect their interests and meeting— if not exceeding—their expectations. Each transaction requires being well-versed in the particulars that drive the deal.”
