Michael Locke

Partner

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. He is editor of “The Silver Lake News “, an online community newspaper and a contributing writer and photojournalist for the “Los Feliz Ledger”, the “Los Feliz Observer” and the “Los Angeles City Historical Society Quarterly Newsletter”. 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 cacique (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 regular contributor to the Los Feliz Observer. He is the author of Silver Lake Chronicles: Exploring an Urban Oasis in Los Angeles and Silver Lake Bohemia: A History, the first-ever history books written about the iconic neighborhood. Michael may be reached at (323) 533-3161 or (323) 644-3338.
