Adam’s start in real estate is a natural progression from his experience in the world of entertainment aligned with his passion and commitment to the community. Before his real estate career, Adam was a managing partner representing talent for over 15 years. Being able to draw on a large network of celebrity clientele he created relationships with nightclubs and casinos managing their celebrity events. He would hone a concept then leverage personal relationships to find cost-effective ways to enhance branding and create “relevance in the marketplace.”
This collaborative work ethic comes naturally to Adam, allowing him to exercise his unwavering dedication to community service and urban planning. He became the organizer and Director of “Grass Roots Organization for Urban Progress.” This is his continued passion, a project that involves training, coaching, and motivating community empowerment and mentorships. Engaging with local residents, nonprofits, and governmental agencies to address equity concerns in the face of neighborhood change and gentrification fuels Adam’s interests and provides a breadth of expertise. Not only is he interested in finding the right home for his clients, but is passionate about protecting the community around it for the common good.
You’ll often hear Adam talk about finding the right neighborhood experience for his buyers. “I enjoy taking my clients through the home buying journey and educating them what urban planning and laws will help them with the biggest investment of their life.” After work, Adam is typically harvesting vegetables with his family and neighbors at his local community garden.

Adam is the best real estate agent/mentor/Sherpa & friend. My fiancé & I are complete newbies to home purchasing. But Adam really took us under wing & guided us throughout this stressful process. Because of his expertise & efforts, we just purchased our 1st home with our 1st bid ever!
Adam is very cognizant of the needs & wants of his clients. And when we found the best home within our budget, he helped us strategize to show that we were the best applicants for the home. It’s been a whirlwind month but we could not have been better prepared. Everything panned out exactly as he predicted, from the steps of bidding, escrow, negotiations, & closing.
I highly highly recommend adam & his team (hi Ali!). We love him so much that I’ve already referred my friend to work with him. Thanks again!
I am so grateful that I found Adam and his extraordinary duo, Ali and Diana. The house that Adam found for me was an off-market listing that was perfect, and very unexpected. I have not bought a home in a very long time and the process was at times overwhelming and exhausting. But Adam was my Sherpa guide throughout. His patience, thoughtfulness, responsiveness, and sense of humor got me across the finish line. He was a delight to deal with, always, even when hand-holding was what I most needed. I could not recommend him more highly. Thank you Adam!
I feel fortunate that I came across Adam and his associate Ali about a year ago. I was a first time buyer with an eye towards purchasing an owner/user investment property. Adam had some fantastic lender suggestions right off the bat who really understood what I was after and how to be of the most help. Adam and Ali were extremely patient with me as I went through all the ups and downs that come with a first property purchase. After we identified the property I would eventually close on, Adam seamlessly worked the purchase negotiation and provided excellent inspection vendors that left no stone unturned. I hope to be in a position to use Adam and Ali again in the coming years. They are hardworking, enthusiastic, and knowledgeable about the entire process. Highly recommend to anyone looking to buy in LA.
If you want a hard working, extremely well informed, and strategic advisor as an agent, you need to work with Adam and the team at Pardee. Many real estate agents expect to get your commission for showing you a few open houses which you already found on Zillow. Not Adam. His team finds off-market listings because they are connected with agents and a network of homeowners throughout LA. They work tirelessly, previewing homes for you, to make sure they are a fit to your requirements so you aren't wasting time visiting misaligned properties. And they guide you step-by-step through the entire buying process including working with loan officers, inspectors, and other 3rd parties. One thing that stood out for us was how strategic Adam was in helping us think through and evaluate loan products and mortgage banking options. His help and guidance saved us tens of thousands of dollars. Lastly, Adam's teammates - specifically Diana and Ali - are amazing too. Together, they made the entire homebuying experience smooth and predictable.
My husband and I worked with Adam on a complicated move. We were moving across the country with limited ability to see houses ourselves. Adam insisted we share any house we were remotely interested and worked around our schedules to do as many showings as we wanted. He helped us identify issues with properties we otherwise would not have been aware of. Once we found a home we loved, there was a complicated closing with multiple issues to navigate. Adam and Ali were with us every step of the way. Often within a minute of us messaging him with a question he would call us to discuss. Once we closed on our home he was in touch to help us find trusted vendors for various projects we wanted to complete who have all been as thorough, flexible, and quick to communicate as Adam. I don’t know how we could have survived this stressful process without him and his team and cannot recommend his services highly enough.
I never write reviews, but I was so unbelievably blown away by the help Adam was able to provide for my wife and I during our home buying process that I feel compelled to tell the world how great he is. My wife and I first met Adam at a showing ~2 years ago. We weren't seriously looking at the time, but Adam spent quite a while getting to know both of us and took an interest in us, regardless of our current buying potential. Right away we hit it off because Adam was more genuine and authentic than any other agent we had met, and we met many through various open houses. Over the next two years, Adam kept in touch and continued to provide very thoughtful and useful insight on the local market, trends he was seeing, and listings that fit the bill for what we were looking for. The info that he shared was incredibly useful, and he always came from a place of trying to educate us, and not push us to buy. One day out of the blue, I came across a house on Zillow that looked like what we were looking for. I sent it over to Adam, and the very next day, he met up with my wife and I and we went over for a showing. The place was exactly what we were looking for but we hadn't anticipated buying yet, and hadn't even started getting things together to make an offer. It was also our first house, so we had a lot to learn. That's where Adam really shined. He walked us through the entire process, step by step, so we knew everything we needed to do and everything that we could expect. As first time home buyers, we had a ton of questions and even more concerns, but Adam was always there with a ton of patience and helpful advice. When the time came to submit an offer, Adam provided us with coaching on the best strategy to get the place and I am confident that without his advice, we would have lost it. During escrow, we came to realize that both the seller and their agent, were an absolute nightmare to deal with. Throughout the process, they were malicious, unresponsive, aggressive, and wildly unprofessional. Despite this, Adam was poised, assertive, and protective, shielding us from their behavior. Any other agent would have told us to walk away, but Adam knew how much we wanted the place and he fought for us for ~45 days, providing us with daily updates keep us at ease and to keep things moving forward. When the day came for us to actually close, we were still dealing with problems with the seller and his agent and Adam had surgery scheduled for the same day. Despite this, he was still in touch in the minutes leading up to his surgery and almost immediately again after it was over. The amount of dedication and commitment he had to us was truly touching. We have since moved in and Adam is still in touch, helping to get us lined up with contractors and checking in to ensure we've got everything we need. I am SO HAPPY we chose to work with Adam and so grateful that he made time for us. I cannot overstate enough how amazing he was and how great it was to have his help over the past few months.
Buying your first home is stressful and doing so in a city where you’ve never lived before is a challenge to say the least. We are very glad that we had Adam to help us out with this process. He knows Los Angeles very well and was able to show us the various neighborhoods and help us figure out the right one for us. He also eventually helped us purchase our dream home, in what was a very competitive bidding process. He was there for us every step of the way, including after closing when we needed some help with the house because we were back in NYC. He made this process much easier and less stressful and for that we are grateful and would highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy a house in LA.
Adam provided AMAZING service representing us during our home search and purchase process in Westchester. He was extremely knowledgeable about the area, comps, and the market setting in what became the early stages of the COVID-19 shutdown. Despite the challenges of the Shelter-In-Place order, Adam was extremely proactive and responsive in supporting us through the entire process from home search, to offer/counter negotiations, and all the way through close of escrow and beyond ensuring all aspects of a new home purchase process were completed in a timely and effective manner. This being our first SFH purchase, we couldn't have asked for a better realtor and partner to make us feel cared for and comfortable and we HIGHLY recommend using Adam
Adam and Ali were amazing throughout our home buying experience! When we started working with Adam, we had seen a few houses we liked, but really had no idea what we were doing, and felt in over our heads. Adam was patient and extremely knowledgeable, guiding us every step of the way. He encouraged us to go after a house we loved even though there were already other offers, and was able to work some magic to get our offer accepted!
Throughout escrow, Adam had great recommendations for inspections and helped us feel confident in the house and focus on the issues we should be prioritizing. We were also able to get a great loan through a recommendation from Adam and he saved us a nice chunk of money with some masterful negotiation skills before closing. Even after closing, Adam has remained a text or phone call away, giving us great recommendations and checking in to see how everything's going. I can't recommend Adam and his associate Ali Haigh enough! We would have been completely lost without them.
Purchasing your first home can be an intimidating/overwhelming experience that is hard to know where to begin. So on a whim, I went to an open house and happened to meet Adam. I could not have been happier I did! When it came time to put in an offer, I was obviously nervous, but Adam was so thorough and informative while explaining the process that I really felt comfortable taking the leap. Not only did he make me feel at ease that I was in the driver’s seat, but he worked hard at getting me the best price possible. It was so comforting seeing him go out of his way to negotiate on my behalf, when a lesser agent would have simply tried to convince me to accept a bad deal to move the process along.
I felt at every juncture I was personally important to him, and he was willing to go above and beyond in order to put my interests first. From handling all of the inspections, to continuing the negotiations to the bitter end, he had my back and made me feel like a friend. I could not have been happier with my experience! Even after closing, he has continued to reach out in order help however he can. With Adam, you’re getting a friend not a sales pitch!
We met Adam by chance and he quickly became a trusted realtor and guide as we searched for our first home. Having only been in Los Angeles for a little over a year, we had a lot to learn on the fly when deciding which area and type of home would be right for us. Luckily for us, Adam was dedicated and determined not only to helping us find a home, but giving us the information to allow us to better define what we were looking for in a home.
Adam spent countless hours -- at showings, on the phone, and in meetings over coffee -- educating us on the litany of factors that a homebuyer needs to consider. He showed us neighborhoods all over the city (from Atwater Village to Marina Del Ray) and was genuinely invested in our search. Over the weeks, he made himself available on nights and weekends.
Even since our initial purchase offer, Adam has been instrumental in helping schedule inspections and contractor meetings. His warmth and guidance made what can be a stressful process very memorable and fulfilling. We would highly recommend reaching out to Adam for any and all Los Angeles home searches
We would have been completely lost without Adam. He was so professional, kind, responsive and immediately put us at ease. Thanks to Adam, we found our dream home. We can’t thank him enough and couldn’t recommend him more highly!
My husband and I met Adam out of sheer luck. We responded to a property that we wanted to see on Zillow, and he was the agent who showed it. We wanted to see another property the next day and he called and made it happen. He was amazing from start to finish, down to every detail. Adam is very polished, professional, prompt and knowledgeable and really goes out of his way to make sure his clients are well taken care of.
Adam comes highly recommended for a reason, give him a shot! You'll be glad you did!!
Christine and Rob
Adam was the best agent we could've asked for. Always on it. So helpful. Never had to chase him. He was always providing us with great houses to look at and was quick to find out more for any house we scoped on one of the many mls related sights. He really found us our dream home when we thought for sure we wouldn't be able to find it on the west side. Adam was a masterful negotiator and helped us get the house at the best price possible. He also held our hand so carefully in every step of the way. Even after we bought the house, he continues to help us to make sure the house is being handled in the best way possible. Truly, an amazing agent and I can't recommend him highly enough!
We met quite a few real estate agents in the process of buying our first home - all of them clearly more interested in closing than listening to our needs. Adam is not the traditional estate agent : he makes the entire process feels like you’re doing it with a trusted friend who has immense knowledge about buying homes. He truly listened, and genuinely wanted to know more about us, our family, our story. He prepared us, educated us on what was going to happen before it did, always using real life examples. This is huge because it made us feel confident & safe during the entire process. He was proactive but not intrusive, self-confident but not pushy, providing multiple solutions to each challenge - not imposing, always available when we needed him., before AND after closing. We would give him 6 stars if it was possible and can’t wait to buy another home with him in a few years !
I just bought a condo with Adam as my fearless negotiator. He's smart, savvy, knowledgeable, experienced, easy to work with, honest, patient and makes what could be a stressful process a very easy one. In fact, the first condo he showed me ended up being the one I bought after he patiently showed me many, many others. He was always by my side supporting me and made everything I needed happen. He's all around fabulous! Hire him as your realtor. You won't regret it.
We met Adam almost two years ago when we moved to LA. We were interested in buying a home but at the time we needed to rent. So he found us a beautiful rental in Venice. 1.5 years later we were ready to buy and the whole process was simply amazing. From his personal warm honest approach, plus the attention to every detail, the whole experience was so easy, and enjoyable!!! I highly highly recommend working with him.
I clicked on a Zillow link, received a callback from Adam, and asked could I see a house in the next 45mins to an hour. He made that happen and ever since we were on a magical memorable ride through closure. I would look no further than Adam--he is thorough, honest, knowledgeable, and will go above and beyond for his clients. I can't even call him an agent anymore because he has become a friend, and I'm truly grateful we were paired with him for our buying experience. Adam is the man!
I stared looking for houses with Adam 7 weeks after having a baby. Adam would come pick us up at our house with baby in tow and drive us to each property showing. If there was a property I wanted to see, he arranged for us to see it ASAP. We were living on the west side and wanted to move the east side. In not much time at all, Adam found our perfect home! There were multiple offers and Adam helped us put together the winning offer! Now we own our first home. As first time buyers, Adam helped us through each and every step of the process with such patience, generosity and care. I can’t recommend Adam enough! He is the best realtor and a wonderful person
I was looking for an off-market single family home and Adam worked hard to find me the perfect fit to my investment criteria. He was very patient throughout the process and answered any question that I had. It was a very nuanced deal, and I appreciated the fact that Adam worked hard to ensure that I was protected throughout the deal. Whether casually, or business related, it's always a pleasure to work with Adam!
Adam Seid made buying my home truly a wonderful experience. He is so knowledgeable about the LA area and a true expert of Venice Beach, he is friendly and patient and really on your side. He takes the time to really personalize the experience to make sure you really get what you want and has many local resources to make sure all your needs are met. I have worked with many brokers over the years but Adam really stands out as a true professional, he’s organized and truly present during the entire experience, highly recommend!
Adam is a superb realtor. He is extremely knowledgeable about the Los Angeles market and incredibly patient. What impressed us most about Adam was the level of thoughtfulness he put into the homes he showed us and the personalized service he provided. We were house hunting for several months, and every week Adam would send us an email with new listings for us to consider, along with a paragraph for each listing describing why he thought the listing met our search criteria as well as any additional information he had about the listings. Adam actively solicited our feedback on each listing we saw so he could get a better sense of exactly what we were looking for.
Adam ended up finding us a perfect home and was our rock throughout a stressful bidding war and price negotiations, inspections, escrow and closing. He is straightforward, has a calm demeanor, and was immediately responsive to our many late night texts and frantic emails. In short, he was exactly what we needed as first time home buyers. We would enthusiastically recommend Adam to anyone looking to buy a home.
We had a great experience working with Adam buying our first home. As first-time home buyers we had A LOT of questions and really were starting from square one. Adam was very patient with us and guided us through the whole process. He also made a great recommendation of someone to work with for our loan. At first we really didn't know what we wanted and Adam showed us everything from move-in-ready homes, fixer uppers, town houses, condos, etc. In the end we fell in love with a condo and Adam helped us beat out multiple offers (including an all-cash offer). Overall great experience and we couldn't have been happier!
My fiance and I just purchased our home and Adam was amazing to work with the entire time. He consistently met up with us to show us different properties, was always willing to give us a call and helped answer any questions we might have. As first-time homebuyers, we had a lot of questions and needed all the help we could find. Adam was able to connect us with his contacts to close escrow as fast a possible. I'd recommend using Adam for any type of real estate deal. He is a great person and an amazing person to work with. Thanks once again for all your help Adam!
As first time home buyers, we had a lot of questions. Adam was patient and diligent in answering our questions and getting us the information we needed.
Adam has a casual style and felt “on” constantly, despite his busy schedule. He was quick to check in on us and never more than a text or phone call away at any time during the process. Throughout the process, we probably spent hours on the phone with Adam.
Once the house was in escrow, Adam really shined. He arranged all of the inspections promptly and managed the process seamlessly. When issues arose with the appraisal, Adam negotiated diligently for us to bring the price in line.
There isn’t a realtor alive who Adam can’t charm, a great asset in a competitive market like LA and he works hard for his clients.
First and foremost, Adam is a consummate professional.
Adam understood our needs and always took a very personal interest in helping us.
We had been looking at a specific complex, and it took a year for the perfect unit to come on the market. He had the patience and sticktoitiveness to stay on top of every new listings in that complex, and, because of his diligence, we were able to be the first to view any new properties as they came on the market.
He stayed in contact with us constantly and vowed to find us the perfect unit, and so he did!
He handled the sale details from start to finish like a caring family member. We felt he totally had our best interests at heart and made sure that we were completely happy and satisfied. We are!
On a side note, Adam is a really cute nice guy, straight forward and fun. He is dedicated to his career and enjoys what he does. You are in good hands with Adam.
Nina and Ron Harris
Adam was fantastic! From the get go, he was responsive to our ever changing wishlist and first time buyer jitters. Adam was able to efficiently communicate the pros and cons of various properties across different neighborhoods. Ultimately, Adam helped us close on a duplex in Santa Monica with his ninja-like negotiating. As an experienced agent working with a reputable brokerage, Adam had the contacts to efficiently coordinate the closing process and the patience to walk us through all the closing contingencies. We are ecstatic and would recommend Adam to all!
We knew Adam was a good guy when we arrived to an open house 10 minutes late and he still showed it to us. By the time we walked to the back of the house we knew we wanted to make an offer, and Adam was with us the whole way. Despite the hiccups that are inevitable with any real estate transaction Adam went out of his way to make sure we were satisfied with the outcome. He really protected us as buyers and made sure we were always in the loop.
Even after we closed, he was still checking in on us.
It’s great to have a buyer’s agent who knows what he’s doing, and it’s even better to have one who’s also fun to hang out with. Adam is both.
After over 2.5 years of searching for properties, Adam was instrumental in closing the deal in a house I purchased in Mar Vista, an exceedingly "hot market" area. The moment I met Adam, there was an immediate connection; he was forthcoming, trustworthy and knowledgeable about the real estate market. As I got to know Adam better during my purchase, he exceeded my expectations with his professionalism and immediate attention to my needs. I also never lost trust in him and knew that I was getting honest information throughout which was most important to me. Aside from being an excellent and experienced agent, Adam is a genuinely good guy; he is caring, compassionate and kind. As happy as I am about purchasing my first home, I am grateful for having met Adam in the process and would highly recommend him.
