With a $15M Profit, Ellen DeGeneres Is the Ultimate House Flipper

Jul 22 2014 - 12:12pm

Dear Ellen, teach us your flipping ways! News broke that Ellen DeGeneres has made $15 million [1] selling her California compound for $55 million to Napster cofounder Sean Parker. Come again? One of Los Angeles's most famous properties, the Brody House was bought by Ellen and her wife, Portia de Rossi [2], back in January for $40 million, but Parker was so enthralled, he was willing to pay up. Although the pictures don't do it justice, it's no doubt that the 13,500-square-foot home was perfectly renovated and decorated — just like the couple's former California ranch [3]. At first, Ellen had no plans to part with the home, but it was probably no big deal, thanks to the Santa Barbara estate and now an entire floor of a Beverly Hills condo [4] she has to fall back on . . . winning.
