Only a guess, as I'm on the east coast!......The Bradbury Building?

Very logical guess that the historic Bradbury Building was the location, but, unfortunately, that's incorrect.

A) Capitol Records Building

A logical choice, but that's not where his office was located.

Another hint-think "Petroleum"

That would be The Kirkeby Center Building.  I also think it is now called Occidental Petroleum Center.

Bingo- that is where Mr. Egbert's office was..Arnold Kirkeby, who built the Kirkeby Center, also owned a home located in Bel Air named Chartwell. Chartwell is the "mansion" you see in the opening credits of the Beverly Hillbillies television show.
