Deanna Johnson

Twenty-one years ago, Deanna began her professional career in the finance industry in Atlanta, Georgia as a mortgage loan originator. Married to an active service member of the US Navy, she and her husband relocated to Naval Submarine Base, Kings Bay, Georgia. Here, she advanced her career working in mortgage loan processing and closings for Navy Federal Credit Union.

In 2005, she accepted a position as an administrative assistant for an international real estate investor. This position afforded her the opportunity to expand her knowledge of real estate acquisitions/mortgage finance with transactions in both the US and abroad.

Three years later, and a return to the civilian sector led her to the Tampa Bay area. She worked for a year as a privately contracted real estate assistant in the Tampa market and then in 2009, she earned her sales associate license. The next four years were spent developing a real estate department for Samuelsen Builders from the ground up. The company specialized in advertising and selling property in the Tampa and Odessa luxury market.

From the Samuelsen project, she achieved status as a multimillion dollar producer in the Tampa and Odessa area. Over the past eight years, she has amassed a network of colleagues, investors and clientele from the U.S. and Europe and now is branching out into South America and Asia.

Deanna is also dedicated to helping provide a healthy atmosphere of educational opportunities through her fundraising efforts for both public and private schools in Georgia and Florida co-sponsored by Walmart Corporation who raised matching funds. She also volunteered for Habitat for Humanity in both states.

She holds a BA in liberal arts from Brunswick College.
