About Us

deasy/penner&partners is a real estate brokerage dedicated to the art of design. Founded by Mike Deasy and George Penner, and together with our growing roster of partners, currently at 100, we bring years of experience and a deep knowledge of the Southern California real estate market to our clients.

Our reach extends from Malibu to Palm Springs and incorporates diverse and stimulating architectural and design styles.

we know design
Southern California has long been a leader in cutting-edge residential design. Over the past 35+ years, our team has been the dominant player in this architectural movement, having represented some of the region's most significant ARCHITECTURAL properties by the likes of: Irving Gill, Richard Neutra, Marston & Van Pelt, Rudolph Schindler, John Lautner, Craig Elwood, Ray Kappe, Raphael Soriano, Buff & Hensman, Gregory Ain and Donald Wexler –as well as contemporary talents: Frank Gehry, Philippe Stark, Lorcan O'Herlihy, Steven Ehrlich, Johnston Marklee, Michael Sant, Patrick Tighe, Koning Eizenberg, Marmol Radziner, Scott Johnson, Stephen Kanner, Predock_Frane and Clive Wilkinson.

In addition, we are honored to represent and help clients source a multitude of different style homes and condominiums. By no means does a house need to be designed by a famous architect to be “Home as art.” More important than “identity,” is the HUMAN CONNECTION that is made between home and ownership. It is the feeling you get when you first walk into a home, where you hang a favorite painting, or spend quiet time that is most special. The common denominator in every instance is that deasy/penner&partners unites design and style with buyers and sellers.
