News Tech: There’s gold in the deal for collectible Pokemon cards and Funko Pop figures. Logan Head and Grant LaFontaine are the founders of Los Angeles-based Livestream shopping platform Whatnot. Whatnot is known as a marketplace for collectibles such as Pokemon cards, comics, and sports cards. Whatnot’s valuation reached $3.7 billion this summer, according to TechCrunch. This summer, Head and LaFontaine jointly paid $15 million in cash to purchase a Beverly Hills home formerly owned by a Hong Kong investor, according to Dirt.com.
The home sits on a 1/2 acre lot with mature trees and lawns. According to Dirt.com, the Beverly Hills home just steps away from another property that Head and LaFontaine just sold. On Sept. 9, the Whatnot duo sold his 3,200-square-foot, four-bedroom, five-bathroom home on Grindon Avenue. 2247 sold in Venice for $3.7 million. The cottage-style home was listed by Laurie Woolner of Campbell Wellman Properties. The buyers were Adam Seid and Tami Pardee of Pardee Properties.
Real Deal confirmed that the co-founder of Whatnot has purchased 410 Doheny Rd. Other agents on the list included Bryce Lowe and Aaron Carman, who are affiliated with Compass, and John Giddins of Sotheby’s International Realty. Laurie Hudson of Berkshire Hathaway Home Services California represented the buyer. The 5,500-square-foot home was on the market for about a year before disappearing. It was originally listed at $18 million. The entire home recently underwent a major renovation including new skylights, glass walls and Italian limestone floors. It also has an infinity pool and spa.
