Ninkey Dalton

Director Estates Division

Get to Know Me

A skilled luxury real estate professional with an unparalleled command of the L.A. market, Ninkey Dalton ranks among the top 2% of real estate agents in Southern California. Known for her personalized, hands-on service and a keen eye for design, coupled with well-honed negotiating and marketing skills, Ninkey offers clients a nuanced understanding of the real estate market backed by 20 years of industry experience.

Specializing in luxury estates in Pacific Palisades, Brentwood, Santa Monica, and the Hollywood Hills, Ninkey understands that each buyer and seller has their own particular needs, points of view, and parameters in which to work, and takes a tailored approach to each client relationship. From former colleagues in the entertainment industry to buyers seeking the perfect fit for their families, Ninkey is able to distill her clients’ wants and needs into tangible results. She has proudly ranked on Wall Street Journal/Real Trends’ Top 1000 for the past two consecutive years, with over $180 million in real estate transactions.

For years, Ninkey created the settings for fictional characters in film and television as a successful Hollywood production designer and now matches real-life homebuyers with perfectly suited properties across Los Angeles. Her design acumen and understanding of the importance of “flow” in a house have been invaluable to her clients, allowing her to see possibilities behind a property that extends well beyond what meets the eye. Charged with managing crews, controlling multi-million-dollar budgets, and designing everything from props to mansions, Ninkey is well-accustomed to handling financial complexities, collaborating with a diverse mix of parties, and juggling details and deadlines. She still draws on her powerful portfolio of business skills and Hollywood relationships to handle intricate transactions with skill, assurance, and absolute discretion.
A resident of Pacific Palisades for over 32 years, Ninkey knows the L.A. market inside and out, however, her expertise extends well beyond Southern California, with an international client base that spans North America, Europe, and Asia. Her global network of affiliates and connections has allowed her to connect far-flung buyers and sellers, while her background in international transactions enables her to engage foreign buyers who are looking to break into the Southern California market.

In addition to real estate, Ninkey is passionate about philanthropy and supports Giveback Homes and Window Between Worlds, an organization that helps empower abused men, women, and children through art. An avid tennis player, when she’s not traversing the city in search of the perfect property for a client or using her detective skills to uncover off-market opportunities, Ninkey enjoys playing tennis at The Riviera Tennis Club, exploring the great outdoors, and taking her Weimaraner, Julep, to the beach.
Working with Ninkey was easy and pleasant and I look forward to doing many more transactions together.

Ninkey was very professional and knowledgeable throughout the whole process. She took care of all of the paperwork and made the purchase seem less. Highly recommend Ninkey for the sale or purchase of a property.

Ninkey is a highly professional Realtor®. With very short notice, she found me a beautiful, private, and secure property in LA. Ninkey also found me a wonderful property for a month in Long Island, NY in the difficult month of August. She is completely trustworthy and I would recommend her to anyone.

— Heather M.

Ninkey's insight and dedication truly helped me stage and sell my Beverly Hills condo for the best price possible. She was on top of the deal from beginning to end, day and night. If you're looking for a hardworking, experienced agent with the know-how to make your place more appealing to buyers, Ninkey is the one!

— Efrat M.

We could not have been happier with Ninkey as our real estate agent. When we realized that we were still a year away from buying a home, she suggested we rent until we had the money to purchase our first home. We are thrilled with our beautiful first home and we look forward to working with Ninkey on our next purchase.

— Scott R.

Ninkey is a consummate professional and did a fantastic job of helping us sell our family home of 41 years. She understands the market and market psychology and is truly a trustworthy and authentic person. We had a terrific outcome and felt completely supported every step of the way. She is (perhaps too!) hardworking and made the process almost pain-free for us. I cannot recommend her more highly!
