"Home is where we spend most of our time, where we raise our families, our sanctuary"
Tressana has the knowledge, experience, and discretion needed to provide you, your family and friends with the advantage you deserve when navigating the process of buying or selling a home.
Originally from Chicago, Tressana has lived in New York, Athens and Rome, exploring the arts, architecture, and people of the world. She studied the performing arts at Washington University St. Louis and CASA (Conservatory and School for the Arts).
Her appreciation for diversity and culture combined with her background in the arts makes Tressana a natural for the Los Angeles real estate industry. Living in Brentwood for over 18 years on the Westside of Los Angeles, she's become an expert in Westside Real Estate from Beverly Hills to Malibu. Whether you are a buyer or seller, she has a genuine passion in helping her clients reach their goals. Her impeccable ability to relate with others, combined with her strong work ethic and razor sharp knowledge of the local market, have contributed to her success.
Tressana is a gem.
She is a rare combination of a gifted and knowledgeable real estate professional, a compulsive hard-worker, and a naturally friendly and attractive personality, who also works with her colleagues and her clients with only the very highest integrity. She has represented me and my family while searching for three separate property purchases. I have relied on her over and over again in the last 5 years to help with all of these property searches, and would not hesitate to use her for our next search. She is extremely trustworthy and a joy to work with. I have a tremendous amount of confidence in her and her abilities to help me in the real estate market. I can easily recommend her to all very highly and without any reservations.

Tressana helped me purchase my first home.
I would have been completely lost without her. She goes above and beyond for her clients and always has their best interests at heart. She is honest, hard-working, and genuine. She was always available when I needed her and responded in a timely manner. She has a lot of knowledge and expertise of the west side and could pinpoint the weaknesses and red flags of a property. Once my offer was accepted, she was even there during some minor inspections that I was unable to go to because I was out of town at the time. I would recommend her to any friend and will definitely be calling on her in the future for any other purchases or sales.

My wife and I met Tressana at a house she was representing and my wife became instant friends with her.
She is the most honest, trustworthy and hard-working person you will ever come across. She has great expertise in real estate and did a masterful job negotiating our current house on our behalf. I was so impressed, I recommended her to my friend who was also appreciative of her help in purchasing his first house in Brentwood. Tressana comes highly recommended and I will call on her for any future home transactions.
-Dr. Kwame D., UCLA ER Physician
Tressana sold my Sherman Oaks home this year.
Not only did she sell my home quickly it was the highest sale in the area for the previous 12 months. She was more than professional, available and explained every detail of what to expect and when at all times. Tressana took pride in selling my home and truly made me feel that she cares deeply for her clients. I would use her again as well recommend her with out any hesitation.
-Tammy H., West Coast Regional for Keihls Since 1851
I have worked with Tressana in real estate transactions since 2005 when were both realtors.
As colleagues, we shared our experiences and knowledge of real estate on a daily basis. I am now retired from real estate. As a consultant in estate and trust administration, I come into contact with attorneys and clients selling property. Because I respect Tressana as a professional of the highest caliber, she is the person I recommend to both buyers and sellers of real estate. What comes to mind immediately is Tressana’s high level of integrity and true sense of caring about her clients’ desires and best interests --- at all times. Her professionalism and knowledge are qualities that make each transaction go smoothly. She is a very strong negotiator. Her expertise in knowing each market and accurately pricing properties is extraordinary. Having a realtor who has a great reputation in the community gives clients an edge in working with other realtors to make deals happen. In my most recent transaction with Tressana, she listed a property for the trustee of an estate I was administering. She guided the trustee (a tax and estate attorney) and me in the remodeling of a home to appeal to buyers, while advising us to make only the improvements which would bring an appreciable return on the investment. Tressana priced the property perfectly in a market that was 40 miles outside her most familiar areas, networked in advance of the listing with other local realtors and sold the property in less than one week at the highest price in the area. I recommend Tressana highly and respect her greatly. Her expertise, judgement, instincts and character are beyond measure.

Tressana helped us in the purchase and sale of a house.
She worked hard and had our interests at heart. She knows her business, and she is ethical and in one matter where we were thinking of purchasing a house, found something that caused us to back out. She is also very personable.
-Neville J., Partner at Johnson & Johnson LLP
Tressana provided my wife and I expert, experienced real estate services for finding and negotiating our home purchase.
She has had a great deal of experience in home sales in West Los Angeles/ Brentwood and Santa Monica, which was crucial in the work she provided us. I can recommend her because of this and her resourcefulness, integrity and the very professional way she conducted her relationship with ourselves. We enjoyed working with her and and look forward to working with her again.
-Christopher W., Christopher Wilkinson Architect
Tressana was extremely pleasant to deal with.
Not only did she know the details of the real estate market in my area, but she was very responsive and always answered my calls immediately or returned them within hours. She has been helpful even after the closing of escrow! I will definitely seek her out for my real estate needs in the future!
-Dr. Neil P., Chief of ER at UCLA Veteran’s Hospital
The owner died in the premises and, as trustee, I had to clean it up and then update the entire premises including repairs required.
Tressana was both able and willing to guide the work requirements, remodel etc. Then, when she listed the Townhome, it was sold in less than a week for all cash, AS IS. A wonderful result at a price higher than market in the area for recent sales.
-Michael A., Playwright, Lyricist, Composer, Retired Tax Attorney
My family had worked with Tressana once before, but this was my first time working with her.
She was always professional, helpful, and went above and beyond to help me get the property I wanted. I had the added wrinkle of being in Africa for the first 2 months of the home search and therefore couldn’t be there to look at the houses myself or always be available a the right time. She worked with other members of my family to look through all of the homes and narrow them down to just the few she knew I would be interested in. She even put all of my forms online so that I could sign them electronically as I couldn’t be there in person. She was a true expert and went above and beyond to find me the property I wanted. Plus, I got a very nice gift after the process was all done!
-Dr. Eli K., Orthopedic Surgery Resident at UCLA Health
Tressana is a great agent.
Unlike other agents I used prior to Tressana she personally showed my condo to prospective buyers rather than just having the buyers agent show it. I would highly recommend her if you are serious about wanting to sell your property. I’m sure she will be just as professional and dedicated if she is representing you as a buyer.
-Bill M., Transportation/Trucking/Railroad Professional
This is the second real estate transaction I have done with Tressana.
She is simply the best. This one was a purchase of a vacation rental property in Palm Springs. Her knowledge of the market was only surpassed by her ability to find the absolute best people in the desert - from inspectors, to property managers, to city officials - she worked hard to make sure each person we interacted with was on top of their game. Tressana treated my purchase as if it was her own. She goes over and above. The sellers agent even commented that one of the reasons our offer was accepted was because of how professionally it was presented. He knew how easy she would be to work with simply from the offer! The purchase was smooth and Tressana was available through every step. I highly recommend!
-Mellissa and Michael G.
Tressana was amazing.
She's so personable yet incredibly professional. Every step of the process of the sale of our home was thoroughly explained and took all the worry out of the process. Everyone she recommended - from painters to stagers were the absolute best of the best. And, while we were sad to sell our first home together, she guided us through every offer and counter offer with empathy and ease. I highly recommend her to everyone!
