LA aaroe
Anyone who’s represented homes in Hollywood (raising my hand) owes a debt of gratitude to C.E. Toberman. In the early 1900s, he rode the earliest crest of the boom, selling subdivisions and opening an office at the empty corner of Hollywood and Highland. He had to build the building first. They called him Mr. Hollywood, but over his long career, his developer’s eye fell all over the area. In fact, we’ve just listed a beautiful 1937 English Cottage by Toberman in Studio City. In this issue, you’ll meet the man who envisioned Hollywood … and made it happen.
John Aaroe
The father of Hollywood … and his Studio City gem

It was no wonder they called renowned banker and developer C.E. Toberman "Mr. Hollywood." After all, he built Grauman's Chinese, the El Capitan, the Egyptian, the Hollywood Bowl, the Roosevelt Hotel – in fact, nearly all the major buildings still around today from Hollywood’s Golden Age.
As early as 1911, when the first million dollars’ worth of new homes were going up in Hollywood, Toberman had already found success acquiring failed residential sub-divisions and reviving them, showing his homes in a new Cadillac touring car. He predicted Hollywood Boulevard would soon be an entertainment center and sold vacant land there, advertising, “Hollywood is at the threshold of the new era of development.” more »
