It’s a Match: Lori Loughlin Sells Bel Air Estate to Tinder Co-Founder

Just over five months after Lori Loughlin and her fashion designer husband Mossimo Giannulli relisted their luxurious Bel Air mansion for $28.65 million, which first wanted $35 million in 2017, the couple has at last found a match. Tinder co-founder Justin Mateen swiped right on the property, scooping it up at a serious discount. The tech entrepreneur paid a still staggering $18.75 million for the luxurious circa-1929 estate, according to Business Insider.

Loughlin and Giannulli’s flight from the affluent area comes as they await sentencing after pleading guilty to conspiring to get their daughters into the University of Southern California. The buyer has also made headlines in the past for dishonorable reasons, resigning from Tinder in 2014 after a sexual harassment allegation was made against him and a lawsuit followed.

Despite the drama that may have unfolded on the property during the recent college admissions scandal, the estate sitting on the Bel-Air Country Club golf course delivers all the serenity one would expect from a Mediterranean home. The mansion has white walls, Terracotta shingles, and stunning outdoor spaces. The interiors are fresh and contemporary, with 6 bedrooms and 9 bathrooms within 9,000 square feet.

Celebrity agents brokered this high-profile deal. Listing Impossible‘s Arvin Haddad of The Agency held the listing while Rodeo Realty’s Josh Flagg of Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles represented Mateen.
