‘Real Housewives’ Star Kyle Richards Sells Bel-Air Mansion for $6.1M

Kyle Richards, of “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,” and her husband, Mauricio Umansky, founder of the real estate brokerage firm The Agency, have finally sold their Bel-Air home.

The elegant estate sold for $6.1 million.

Over the years since they’ve vacated the premises, their residence has been available for sale and for rent. Last year, Richards’ fellow cast member Sutton Stracke leased the place at a “friends and family discount” of $20,000 a month, while Stracke’s own home was under construction.

The couple initially placed the property on the market in 2017, for just under $7 million.

In 2018, they dropped the price to $6,229,000, and then dropped it again to $5,995,000.

After spending a couple of years as a luxury rental, the home returned to the market in July 2021—this time with a price hike, to $6.75 million. The posh pad had last been on the market for $6.5 million, before selling at the beginning of 2022.

The listing was held by Umansky, along with his listing agent daughters, The Agency’s Farrah Brittany and Alexia Umansky, who had both lived in the family home.

“A bittersweet goodbye to the home I have countless memories in,” Alexia Umansky said in a statement. “A home that shaped so much of who I am today. It was an honor to pass it along to the next owners, who I know will love every moment here.”

The buyer is the financial guru and author Amanda Frances. Steve Frankel with Coldwell Banker Realty represented the buyer.

Bel-Air abode

We approve of the investment. Located on a tree-lined cul-de-sac in upper Bel-Air, the expansive estate features seven bedrooms and 8.5 bathrooms, on 6,229 square feet.

The listing boasted that it is “exquisitely reimagined by Faye Resnick Design,” and the layout is set up for entertaining.

Highlights of the grand interiors include a living room with marble fireplace, exposed beams, and hardwood floors, and a formal dining room. The chef’s kitchen, with marble counters and a large island, flows out through French doors to the backyard and pool.

Other amenities include a pub, home theater, gym, office, and master bedroom with a balcony, marble bathroom, and walk-in closets. 

The grounds of almost a half-acre are no less impressive, boasting a pool and spa, dining and lounge terraces, a grassy lawn, a lighted sports court, and putting green.

‘Real Housewife’ of Encino?

The couple has moved on to Encino, CA, where they picked up the Smokey Robinson estate in 2017. The home where the legendary musician lived from 1988 to 2002 sold for $8,253,000.

Remodeled by a developer long after Smokey had left the building, the 10,600-square-foot compound includes seven bedrooms, a home theater, a separate guesthouse, and pool.

The reality TV star is the last remaining original cast member on the show, whose Season 12 is in production.
