Meet Tessa

Estates Agent

Tessa Johnson brings 28 years of real estate experience, extensive local knowledge and a fine-tuned designer’s eye to her work at The Agency Malibu. As a real estate agent and interior designer, Tessa offers a rare blend of market expertise and design process as she guides her clients throughout Malibu, the Westside and San Fernando Valley.

Tessa has a knack for putting herself in her clients’ shoes and listening to their needs to find their ideal property. She uses her talents and experience as an interior designer to guide sellers as they prepare their homes for sale. Tessa then walks her clients through every aspect of the transaction, negotiating expertly on their behalf. Much of her clientele
comes from repeat and referral business, while her utmost care and discretion have served high-profile clients, including celebrities, musicians and entertainers.

A consistent top-producing agent, Tessa has earned many accolades and awards throughout her career, including ranking among the Top 10 agents in her office while at Coldwell Banker, as well as being selected as a member of the firm’s President’s Circle and Sterling Society.

Raised in one of the most well-known homes in Montecito, Tessa found a passion and appreciation for Southern California architecture at an early age. Her career experience includes founding her own interior design firm, Las Tejas Designs, as well as sales, marketing and the performing arts—all experiences that contributed to her broad knowledge and unique skill set.
