Ryan Saghian’s latest real estate venture

His first foray into home rehabbing involved gutting and re-envisioning a 1920’s residence in Beverly Grove. Once on the market, that home received multiple offers and sold within a week. With his latest real estate investment, 8671 Clifton, Saghian has a bold new concept: His goal is to sell the Beverly Hills home, then stay on as the interior designer, working every step of the way with the new owners to create a truly customized dream home.

What happens when consumers stop consuming?

We’re also seeing a generational shift in how people view shopping and buying. Why is this happening? Because the older generations were accumulators and the younger generations, well, not so much. we have a generation of accumulators shedding their belongings and not restocking. And we have younger generations who are less interested in shopping as sport and more worried about the environmental impact of their purchases. Oh, and they have relatively fewer financial resources than some previous generations at the same point in their lives.
