You may know Robert Herjavec from ABC’s Shark Tank – or as most of you ask us “do you have info on Robert Shark Tank?” ha! – but the business world knows him as the successful entrepreneur who has gone from rags to riches. Arriving in Canada from Yugoslavia, penniless and without speaking the language, he worked hard and made his own destiny. And he has the house to prove it!
Let’s take a look at his newest home he shares with his wife, Dancing with the Stars alum Kym Johnson.
Robert Herjavec House
Where does Robert Herjavec live? In the Los Angeles area, of course! More specifically, Robert Herjavec’s house is located in the Outpost Estates section of the Hollywood Hills.
If you’re not familiar with this area, it’s mainly known for its Spanish and Mediterranean houses, dating back to the 1920s. However, Robert’s house isn’t that old.
You may not know the name Maxim Cherniavsy, but ladies in Russia sure do. He appeared on the Russian version of the Bachelor and is a real estate property developer. He built the home and sold it to Olympian Shaun White for $6.4 million in 2015. And then in 2017, Robert purchased the home for $6.7 million.
The front of Robert’s home is unique in that it is made up of concrete, wood, and glass, so it looks very contemporary. Robert’s home is about 4,500-square-feet, so while not the most massive of Hollywood mansions, it’s still very spacious inside.
When you enter the front of the home, past the two-door garage, you enter a combination of the living room, dining room, and kitchen, which makes up the majority of the main floor. Of course, floor-to-ceiling windows not only make for spectacular views, but it also lets in an enormous amount of natural light.
One cool feature of the home is its unusual lighting fixtures. Criss-crossed strips of LED lights hang on the ceilings of many of its rooms.
The five-bedroom, five-bathroom house has a unique master suite in that you can only access it by entering the master bathroom. A bit backward, but certainly gives a little more privacy. The master bathroom is also completely open and visible to anyone in the master bedroom. I have a lot of nightmares about me trying to find a bathroom with a door and can’t, so this is my worst nightmare come true, to be honest.
The house also comes with a gorgeous swimming pool and hot tub and lots of space for lounging and relaxing. And the views aren’t too shabby, either.
How did Robert Herjavec make his money?
Robert Herjavec was born in Yugoslavia, but his family left when he was just eight-years-old to escape the communist regime. They arrived in Canada with a mere $20 in their pockets. This is what Robert has been determined to work hard his whole life.
He graduated from the University of Toronto in 1984 with a degree in English Literature and Political Science, an amazing feat for someone who didn’t speak any English 14 years prior.
Though he began his career in the film industry, he left to work in technology. He started with a company that sold computer software. He had no experience but offered to work his first job for nothing for six months. He worked odd jobs in addition to offset his $0-salary. That sounds crazy to most people, but the move paid off. He moved up within the company, eventually becoming the general manager.
He then started his own business with Warren Avis (the founder of Avis Car Rental) called BRAK Systems. It quickly became the largest Internet Security firm in Canada. AT&T eventually bought the company for $30.2 million in 2000. He then became the Vice President of Sales for Ramp Network, which was eventually sold to Nokia for $225 million.
In 2003, he started the Herjavec Group, which provides information security services to companies. It’s said to be worth $150 million.
