YOUR MAMAS UPDATE: Sorry for the shoddy linkage children. Your Mama as fixed the link to our previous post on the Bezos property.
YOUR MAMAS NOTES: This morning, in her Hot Properties column in the LA Times Ruth Ryon reports that Jeff Bezos, the Amazon.com founder and CEO, has purchased the Rick and Fabienne Guerin property we discussed back in early February.
Ryon reports that the sale "was one of the highest-priced sales in Beverly Hills in recent years," and Your Mama speculates that it might just be the highest price ever paid for a house in the flats of Bev Hills.
This property backs up to the TomKat compound which the strange and unusual couple had been renting for a rumored $40,000 per month. However, the couple and the various Crooz family members that live with, them will soon be moving out of the Alpine Drive house now that they have recently purchased a a compound of their own.
Have a look-see at our previous post on the formerly Guerin now Bezos property to see how people with serious money live.
Also, Your Mama would like to congratulate the listing agent, the inestimable Miz Joyce Rey, on her gigantic commssion. Lady earned it on this one. You know you did hunny, so go buy yerself something nice to celebrate.
