Johnny Steindorff

I have been in a serious love affair with Malibu for the past 20 years...I love the community and lifestyle. I love the people and culture. I love the beaches and mountains. And I love Malibu real estate.

I started in the business in the worst Malibu real estate market in history and used it as a learning challenge that has leveraged me into great success with even the most discerning clientele. 

I look forward to meeting you in person, understanding your situation to develop a plan based around your real estate intentions, followed by execution to successfully manifest your real estate dreams into reality.

Testimonials

Great experience! He trully knew what I was looking for. Very professional but made me feel ike a friend rather then just a client! I will for sure use Johnny again in the near future and recommend him to everyone looking for a place to buy or rent! Thank you! - Adriana

 

 Brant was able to make a deal on the sale of our house that at the outset seemed if not impossible at least unlikely. In the midst of near collapse of the banking system, a crushed real estate market and some extremely difficult neighbor issues, Brant was able to finesse a great deal. He did this through patience, perseverance, and expertise. Doing any deal in Malibu is complex due to the local laws and geology concerns. My experience is that one needs an absolute expert, someone with competency and deep knowledge of all the factors involved. My recommendation would be Brant Didden. The guy is a pro in a field that is filled with amateurs. - David Stewart-

 

Johnny delivers. Plain and simple. I needed to relocate to LA (Brentwood) and had two months to find my ideal rental location. Johnny stepped up and delivered flawlessly. He was kind, always on time and extremely knowledgable about the local area. I found my perfect house and when I plan on moving in the future the first and only person I'll call is Johnny. - Dhru

 

I have sold two home and purchased one vacant lot through Brant Didden. I have 100% confidence in his expertise representing me as both a buyer and a seller. In one selling instance, he was able to get nearly 99+% of the asking price. and this was in a toughening market. In the other, when time was critical, he found a cash buyer and made the deal happen. In all three deals, there were the inevitable problems, but Brant Didden smoothed them out with little of the stress passed on to me. I cannot imagine using another agent in the Malibu/Topanga area. Kelly Callan

 

I highly reccomend Johnny. I am new to the area and was so overwhelmed with everything that came up the google search for an apartment. I didn't know where to begin. A friend referred me to Johnny. I called him up, that same day he sent me several listings via email and the next day we went and saw lots of great places... We found my dream spot! He made all the paperwork stuff I can't stand a breeze. By far the most professional, knowledgeable and prompt agent I have ever dealt with. :) - Lauren

 

My family has bought and sold several pieces of real estate in recent years and by far the best representation we have encountered is Brant Didden. Mr. Didden knows the Malibu area in great detail and understands the issues of obtaining a building permit in the Coastal Zone. He has helped us buy land and recently listed and sold our home at a very good price. Given the present market conditions this is no small feat. His advertising is articulate, accurate and effective. Brant knows the value of design and can accurately describe the style of architecture and type of construction. He can answer many questions regarding geotechnical issues and bureaucratic red tape. He listens to prospective buyers and helps them find just the right property near the location they desire. If not for Mr. Didden’s excellent representation our home would probably still be languishing on the market. Instead the new owners are thrilled to have found that particular home which was a perfect fit for their design sensibility and personal requirements. Brant found the right buyers, put the deal together and made everyone involved comfortable and satisfied. This was one smooth transaction. - Vitus Matare

 

Straightforward and professional, Johnny is great to work with! Even though we have not yet completed a transaction, he has been very patient with us throughout the home searching process. - Tim

 

Brant Didden is an excellent Broker who immediately recognized our needs and only showed us properties that were within the guidelines we gave him. Contrary to many other brokers, he did not waste our time by scheduling showings of inappropriate properties. He is a straight shooter, highly efficient and best described as the Anderson Cooper of Malibu’s broker scene. - Marco Weber

 

If you want to find the best property for the best price while having a great time then Johnny is your man. He has great energy, and makes buying a home an enjoyable process. Johnny sets himself apart from the rest of the agents. He is honest and kind yet still extremely aggressive in the negotiations. I told him what I wanted and he executed, and for that he will be my agent for life.
- Ryan
