Mike Deasy is deasy/penner&partners’ Chief Executive Officer, co-managing director and its managing broker.
He is a Yale-educated urban planner-turned-realtor who has represented both buyers and sellers of some of the most architecturally significant residential properties in Southern California for the past 30+ years. An industry trailblazer, Mike helped pioneer the specialized market for architectural homes by leveraging his deep respect for art and architecture into a profitable approach to marketing properties.
Prior to DPP, Deasy was the President and Managing Broker of Mossler Deasy & Doe—a residential real estate brokerage firm that pioneered the niche of representing architectural and historic properties in Southern California.
Born and raised in Los Angeles, Mike has long been inspired by the state’s rich and groundbreaking tradition in residential architecture. He currently resides in the Entenza House, designed by Harwell Hamilton Harris, and recently completed the renovation of a Richard Dorman home in the Hollywood Hills. He is also passionate about cultivating the market for the next wave of architectural talents, such as Lorcan O’Herlihy, Steven Ehrlich and Koning Eizenberg.
Almost immediately after founding deasy/penner in 2006, Mike, George and the rest of the team recognized the necessity for a formal multi-unit division – dedicated to the representation of design-centric condominium projects in Los Angeles. Since its inception, deasy/penner MultiUnit has become the definitive resource for developers—successfully representing over a dozen projects and several hundred units.
Mike Deasy is the current Treasurer and a past president of the Beverly Hills Board of Realtors, Director of the California Association of Realtors and was also president of the Combined Los Angeles Multiple Listing Service for four years. During that time, he helped initiate Listing Link, Caravan Express and other critical information systems and publications related to real estate.
