Jaman Properties (sounds like jammin’) is a boutique real estate development company specializing in selecting, purchasing, designing, building, furnishing and marketing for sale, one-of-a-kind residences in select areas of Los Angeles and Malibu.

Jaman principals Janus Cercone (Ja) and Michael Manheim (man) spent decades in show business, producing and writing award-winning movies, television and theatre. Now they produce and write award-winning homes.

In the same way they would approach making a movie, Cercone and Manheim imagine the hero or heroine for whom they’re developing, create a detailed biography of that fictional avatar, then produce a bespoke “set” designed to inspire their protagonist’s journey to be most fully realized.

With rare exception, the real-world buyer has turned out to be eerily similar to the fictional character for whom the house was created.

Cercone and Manheim believe that a Jaman home must offer more than its buyer expects–not just in tangible luxury–but by providing opportunities throughout the home to create new experiences, to reflect, grow and share—food, drink and love. It’s not enough that a Jaman property has style…it must also have soul.

To this end, each Jaman property offers not just the expected luxuries for a home at its price point, but also one-of-a-kind elements designed to heighten the home’s living experience by elevating its narrative.

Past projects have included singular features such as a powder room covered in 25,000 individually applied peacock feathers; a kitchen island made from Fred Astaire’s dance floor; original antique Malibu tile fountains, a sink made from a ½ ton amethyst geode, a dining room painted in crushed pearls, a room painted with a mural of the sea—accompanied by a dedicated soundtrack of waves and gulls and the archivally preserved shower where Ronald Reagan received the news he’d been elected President of the United States.
