Andrew Jelmert began his real estate career more than 30 years ago, primarily to establish his own personal financial portfolio and for helping his friends who were seeking advice on how and where  to invest their savings. He purchased his first income property 40 years ago from money saved while attending graduate school. He obtained his Bachelor of Science degree from Cooper Union and his MBA degree from the State University of New York at Buffalo, where he taught both undergraduate and graduate courses in management science and finance.  He has been a financial consultant to the University of Southern California School of Medicine, as well as financial institutions and manufacturing operations. For the past eleven years, he has served as treasurer of a large condominium project in Honolulu, Hawaii, during which time the reserves of the association have increased fivefold. Before coming to Deasy/Penner, he was a training director at Coldwell Banker Los Feliz and the recipient of numerous sales awards. His analytical skills and ability to simplify the complex are invaluable tools when communicating with both buyers and sellers.   Andrew may be reached at (323) 497-9688.

Michael Locke began his real estate career in 2002, after successful careers as a high school football coach in suburban Washington, D.C. and in corporate equipment sales for the Ingersoll Rand Company. For more than 30 years, he has been investing in a wide range of real estate holdings with  partner Andrew Jelmert.  In 2002, Michael joined Andrew at Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in Los Feliz, along with Michael’s wife Donna Jean Titus (formerly of Titus Real Estate).  Within the year, Michael and Andrew distinguished themselves as Architectural Specialists by the firm's ARCHITECTURAL DIVISION in recognition of their knowledge and record of accomplishment listing and selling architecturally- significant properties.

After a decade of accomplishment at Coldwell Banker and a two year interlude associated with Keller William Los Feliz Realty, the pair made the switch to Deasy, Penner &  Partners in November 2012.  "In changing firms Deasy/Penner was the only one we took under consideration, according to Michael; their 'architectural and design-centric emphasis dedicated to home as art®" perfectly suits our philosophy and interests."

Michael Locke is deeply involved in the community.  While living in Silver Lake, he served as Vice Chair of the local neighborhood Council (SLNC) and founded the Silver Lake Beautification Committee.  An accomplished photojournalist, he is Publisher and Editor of The Silver Lake News.  He lives with his wife Donna Jean in the historic Durex Model Home ("La Casa Contenta) in Los Feliz with their Chihuahua-mix dog Maggie and their pet caique (parrot), Zach.  They are members of the First Congregational Church of Los Angeles where Michael serves as Trustee and is Chair of the Building and Grounds Committee.  They are also active members of the Los Feliz Improvement Association, where Michael serves as a Director and serves on the History and Communications Committees.  He is a regular contributing writer for the Los Feliz Ledger, the Los Feliz Observer and the Los Angeles City Historical Society Newsletter.  He recently completed the first-ever book on the history of Silver Lake, Silver Lake Chronicles:  Exploring an Urban Oasis in Los Angeles, published by the History Press.
