Arnold Goldstein, who passed away at age 90 this week, was a leader in local real estate and art appreciation in Manhattan Beach.
Goldstein was known as one of the "founding fathers" of real estate in the South Bay, having founded Shorewood Realtors in 1969. Along with partner Larry Wolf, Goldstein shepherded the growth of the company into a dominant force in Manhattan Beach and South Bay real estate. Shorewood was the largest independent brokerage in the South Bay until it was sold in 2014. The A-frame Shorewood office building on Manhattan Beach Boulevard was an iconic landmark in town for years.
Along with his wife, Homeira Goldstein, Goldstein was also known as a patron and benefactor of the arts. Their non-profit art educational organization Time4Art has curated multiple shows and educational experiences with mission of enhancing cultural art awareness in South Bay - and has collaborated on more than 30 exhibits at the Manhattan Beach Art Center.
The Goldsteins designed their Hill Section home as a showplace of their extensive art collection, and as a frequent gathering space for art events.
A private memorial service will be held next week.
