Julia Kanesawa partners with clients to find “Refined, Elegant and Personalized” real estate investments and properties that align with what’s important to them. As a real estate consultant, Julia likes to ask questions, listen and guide her clients in the process of finding a harmonious home that connects with the heart and builds long-term wealth through the greatest asset there is - real estate.
With over two decades of experience as a residential realtor, Julia now works with clients primarily in the Conejo Valley. Prior to calling the Conejo Valley home, Julia resided and represented buyers and sellers in the Westside of Los Angeles for over 18 years. She has the ability to cross-sell in both areas through the network of Sotheby’s International Realty.
Julia can help identify luxury lifestyle homes from the majestic Santa Monica Mountains to spectacular oceanfront views on the Pacific Ocean. With equestrian farms, ranches and large acre lots, there is an abundance of beautiful homes. Her primary markets surround Los Angeles and Ventura Counties, and include Agoura Hills, Calabasas, Hidden Hills, Hidden Valley, Malibu, Newbury Park, Thousand Oaks, Topanga and Westlake Village.
Using a personalized approach, Julia provides undivided attention. Born in America with Japanese roots, she applies the Japanese Tea Ceremony traditions of “one moment, one encounter” to every meeting. Julia’s clients benefit from her broad experience and dedication as a:
Long-Term Partner - Julia genuinely cares about her client’s decisions and long-term wealth. 95% of Julia’s clients return to make future investments with her guidance.
Real Estate Consultant - During the discovery process, Julia asks many questions about priorities, lifestyle preferences and numbers to find the ideal home and real estate investment. She loves putting these pieces together in an elegant way.
Great Negotiator – As a former CPA for one of the Big 4 firms (KPMG Peat Marwick, Ernst & Young,) Julia partners with her clients to negotiate the right investment at the right time in the right place. She enjoys helping clients navigate the contract details.
Intuitive Realtor – Julia takes great pride in helping evaluate options using both rational decision-making and intuition. Gut instincts and emotional connections are paramount in this process.
Family and Spiritual Foundation – As an American with a Japanese family that goes back 400 years, Julia lives a bilingual, bicultural and spiritual lifestyle. Her daily meditation and yoga practices, family history as landowners, Japanese tea ceremony traditions, and connection with nature are all part of her solid foundation.
Community Engagement – Julia is a member of the California Yacht Club and supports the Conejo Valley School District and several charities (Tuesday Nights.) Her professional memberships include the National Association of Realtors, California Association of Realtors, Conejo Simi Moorpark Association of Realtors, Women’s California Association of Realtors Ventura County, and AICPA.
