Emily Johnson began her real estate career in 2003 when she invested in her first duplex in the then emerging Silver Lake area. She fell in love with designing and renovating character homes and has renovated over 10 other properties, from a historic Craftsman in Angelino Heights to a mid-century modern in Mar Vista. In 2010 she became a realtor with Sotheby’s International Realty - Los Feliz Brokerage. Since then, she has been helping others build wealth and achieve their goals in the Los Angeles real estate market.
Every sale is different, every home is unique, and Emily is there every step of the way. As a listing agent, she prides herself on listening deeply and acknowledging clients' needs and desires, while also managing expectations based on an ever-changing market. Her staging, eye for design and competitive marketing strategy consistently garners praise, press, and top dollar for her clients’ homes.
When advising buyers, she is conscious of the fact that making a purchase is a huge investment, both financial and emotional. Emily is client-focused: advising, coaching, teaching, empowering, and protecting- regardless of the price-point, and has a 93% offer acceptance rate. Clients who are ready to take the leap into homeownership are well served by Emily’s expertise and advocacy.
The daughter of a ship captain, an environmentalist, a therapist, and a sociology professor, Emily grew up between many homes in both historic Newport, RI and Connecticut. After graduating from NYU, she lived in New York City until 2000 when she moved to Los Angeles. Emily sells real estate all over Los Angeles, including Los Feliz, Silver Lake, Echo Park, Hancock Park, Larchmont, Mid-City, Historic West Adams and Jefferson Park, Culver City, and Mar Vista.
Emily is a homeowner, landlord, investor, certified ADU specialist, designer, desert property owner, and mother to two boys, two rabbits, and one very barky dog.
