Lester Knispel, who manages all of the Kardashians’ finances (minus those of Kris Jenner’s), has listed his sprawling California home for $4.5 million.

The man, who also orchestrates the financial affairs of stars including Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj, purchased the home in 2014 for $3.21 million.

But he’s had a hard time trying trying to sell it these past few years.

Located in Santa Barbara, the property spans more than 8,200 square feet, and is made up of seven bedrooms and eight bathrooms.

It first hit the market in 2017 for $3.59 million, with a pending offer a few months later. But it appears that the deal fell through. The property then opened up to prospective renters for $25,000 per month before being relisted for sale in 2020 with an asking price of $4 million.

It has been on and off the market since.

Although it just hit the market again last week, it looks like Knispel might have better luck this time around, as the home already has a pending offer.

The property spans more than 8,200 square feet.

Knispel has a robust real estate portfolio. He owns a home Calabasas, California, and in the Paradise Valley enclave of Arizona, according to Dirt.

At the height of the COVID-19 pandemic — and reportedly without stepping inside beforehand — he also dropped $1.5 million for a Florida investment property, according to the Wall Street Journal.
