Crosby Doe, "who recognizes the value of preserving architectural history, Doe has made a career of matching buyers who care about houses with integrity to the historic and modernist works of architecture icons." Mark Morrison, LA Magazine

A true architectural connoisseur and rigorous aesthete, Crosby Doe is recognized for his curatorial approach to modern architecture. He has helped such notables as Joel Silver and power couple Mitch Glazer and Kelley Lynch secure their dream architectural homes, and he offers valuable and treasured counsel that continues after the sale: Doe provides homeowners with original drawings, background and books on the property as well as advice on maintaining its architectural integrity. By doing so, he is helping to preserve Southern California's architectural heritage.

As a California native, Doe developed an appreciation for that legacy early on while growing up amongst the Arts & Crafts masterpieces of Pasadena. He began his career in real estate in 1973 and, in a serendipitous turn, a Neutra was the first significant property he sold. The house helped inspire his vision of architectural real estate as a special market, a niche he went on to pioneer along with partner David Mossler.

Called an “uber-agent for architectural homes”, and respected as a historian of the state's most important properties, Doe has represented such iconic homes as:

  • The Reiner-Burchill Residence (Silvertop), John Lautner

  • The Storer House, Frank Lloyd Wright

  • The Navarro House, Lloyd Wright

  • The Carling House, John Lautner

  • The Struckus House, Bruce Goff

  • The Shell House, Wallace Neff

  • The Singleton House, Richard Neutra


as well as other architectural residences created by Ray Kappe, Morphosis Architecture, Rodney Walker, Rudolph Schindler, Buff & Hensman, Cliff May, and many others.
