Career bio

David was born March 21, 1982 in London, United Kingdom. He studied at the University of Manchester where he also earned his Bachelor Degree in Economics and Politics. After graduation, Parnes scored a job opportunity in hedge fund. That is a dream job for most people but David had other plans than staying in the investment business.

In 2009, Parnes relocated to LA, California and decided to enter real estate market. He joined James Harris and together they formed The Agency. They are both skilled professionals and soon, they started selling large numbers of luxurious properties all around the greater Los Angeles area.

Bravo TV has a reality television show and eventually decided that both rising stars from The Agency are a great fit for it. David and his colleague joined 7th season of Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles in 2014 and they were on the show ever since. Season 12 is about to start in mid 2020 and we can’t wait to watch it.


David is married. He and his beautiful wife Adrian Abnosi had a wedding in a luxurious resort in south France in 2017. Gorgeous blonde gave birth to their first child named India Rose in April 2018. David’s wife is sharing a lot of pictures of their daughter on her Instagram account.

Sources of income, salary

One has to be very confident in ability of making money, when leaving a profitable career at a hedge fund. But Parnes proved all doubters to be wrong. He is doing what he loves and makes sizable income while doing it. His net worth is currently propelled by commissions on his successful house sales.

According to his own profile, Parnes sold for example $160,000,000 mansion in Holmby Hills. Opulent palace is pampering its new owner with 14 bedrooms, five acres of land, and French design. Needless to say, this real estate belongs to the largest ones even in LA’s sought-after “Platinum triangle”.

He also sold $30 million property in famous Melrose Place and bunch of other astonishing mansions. His current listings include also some impressive houses and 10 free acres in prestigious Bel Air. What would you build there, if you had the money?

In addition to his income as a realtor, David also has a deal with Bravo TV but we doubt that money from it make a big difference for his personal finances. Still, it provides him with recognition and fame. This can turn into more rich and famous people actually asking for his services.
