Bearing an undeniable worldly cognizance is Swedish-born Magnus Hellberg, a true hands-on leader and collaborator representing the Los Angeles real estate community for more than a decade and an original partner at Partners Trust, Pacific Union since its inception in 2009. Magnus is best known for his ability to serve his clients, a forte in real estate accomplished by leveraging his attention to detail and communication skills in tune with their specific needs, coupled with extensive knowledge of the Los Angeles real estate landscape. With his caring demeanor and results-driven approach, Magnus goes well beyond merely selling homes; he changes lives.
A steadfast believer that there is no future in the past, Magnus does, however, honor how his prior experience in the high-end hospitality industry helped him to perfect the art of luxury service. His days as a restaurateur in his homeland of Sweden, as well as in the foodie mecca of San Francisco, taught Magnus how to recognize and anticipate the needs of his patrons. Working in the hotel industry on Maui and in Los Angeles for over a decade only deepened that understanding.
The common thread found in Magnus’ professional life, including his stint as an actor, leads back to being an excellent listener. By asking the right questions and gathering as much information as possible, Magnus is able to better negotiate on his real estate clients’ behalf. Not to mention, being a world traveler with a fluency in four languages—English, Danish, Swedish, and Norwegian—further elevates his ability to relate to all walks of life and circumstances.
Magnus is the proud co-chair of the Partners Trust, Pacific Union Charitable Giving Fund and is also involved with Giveback Homes, L.A. Family Housing and Pacific Palisades Rotary Club. An active tennis player and golf enthusiast, Magnus is a member of both Calabasas Country Club and Calabasas Tennis and Swim Center.



Magnus helped us get into our first home. Walked us through process professionally, with a kind smile and utmost patience. He is first and foremost a human being, who happens to be a great real-estate agent, too.

Thanks Magnus... Elina and I really appreciate all of the help and good advice you provided us throughout the process. We also appreciated you bearing with us as our interest in house hunting ebbed and flowed. You can be sure we'd recommend you to anyone we know who's in the market for a new home.

You found me the perfect house which I am forever thankful. Thank you for the joy it has given me.

I wanted to say thank you for really helping to get Calabasas closed.

I could not have gotten this far without you.

On behalf of everyone at the Swedish-American Chamber of Commerce of Greater Los Angeles, I wish to express our gratitude to you for demonstrating your commitment to the Chamber in connection with The Eighteenth Annual Eliason Award Dinner. We are especially grateful by the generosity shown by you, which really helped us fulfill our goals of making a successful Eliason Award Dinner honoring Kent Berg at the Kodak Theatre, Hollywood.

— Annika Sandberg

I wish to thank you for your participation and efforts in the recent Chamber mixer. The event was very enjoyable and I look forward to future mixers. I must tell you that the gift basket that I won in the drawing was the finest basket I have ever seen at any such event. I am still enjoying the coffee and, of course, the vodka. My particularly will make use of the tableware this season. Thanks again, and keep in touch.

Recently during a difficult time I signed a document agreeing to sell a property for a ridiculous price offered by some unscrupulous people. I contacted Magnus Hellberg to ask for advice on how to get out of the contract. Magnus took the time to find out what my options were. He ultimately helped me save the property and a substantial amount of money. I am thankful for the help I received from Magnus and I feel fortunate to have a Realtor like him to assist me in any future transactions.

— Leigh Castle

I just wanted to drop you a line and thank you for the very professional and helpful way in which you handled the purchase of the Lelia Ln. property in Bel-Air for us. You really went out of your way to smooth out the transaction for us and never hesitated to make a special trip for even minor issues such as meeting a locksmith at the house, etc. Thanks again.

— Ira Deyhimy

I highly recommend Magnus as a real estate agent when looking to buy or sell a home. I have had the opportunity to work with Magnus on the purchase and sale of homes in the past year, and my experience has been nothing but the best. Magnus has a very good feel for the market, and I trust in his better judgment. His positive and good-natured personality shines through when dealing with potential clients and other real estate agents. I put all my confidence in Magnus and highly recommend him.

— Tiffany Bartolacci

I was very satisfied with the way Magnus handled all the details, from the offer to the final closing and delivering of the keys. He is willing to go the extra step. His attention to detail and professionalism are to be commended, always prompt in returning my calls and staying on top of any information I requested. It was a pleasure working with him and I will certainly seek him out in the future when I'm ready to buy my next property and/or refer him to friends and associates.

— Thalia Montiel

It is my personal opinion that Magnus Hellberg's reputation in the business community, and his expertise of the real estate process in all its details, not only helped us find the right place but enabled a smooth and successful transaction. It is my pleasure to say that I would greatly recommend Magnus to friends and family as well as business contacts.

Bought a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $775K in Westwood, Los Angeles, CA.

Magnus guided us (first time home buyers) through the complete process and explained each step in detail, so we always felt in good hands. He also made sure we are able to close on time and coordinated very successfully all involved parties (mainly sellers Real Estate Agent, banks, escrow). We definitely recommend Magnus to all our friends.

Bought a home in 2015 in Encino, Los Angeles, CA 91316.

Magnus is a great agent - he allows you to set the pace of the buying process. Moreover, I always felt like he had our interests in mind, rather than just looking for a quick deal and fee. Magnus understands that treating his clients with care and respect pays off far more in the long run.

Beyond his patience, he understands the process, will advise you on whether something you like will fare well if / when you decide to sell in the future, etc.

I've already recommended Magnus to a couple of friends, and should I wish to move in the LA area in the future, I would use him for sure.
