Between her midwest upbringing, Arizona schooling, and current role representing the Residences at Carbon Beach in Malibu, Leah Kouba’s personable, down-to-earth nature follows her wherever she goes. A self-proclaimed chameleon, Leah is extremely adaptable, sporting a “do whatever it takes” attitude towards her professional life.
Leah’s tenacity was tested early on in her career when she took a sales position for a start-up tequila company. As part of a seven-member team with no official marketing, Leah proved integral in positioning the choice liquor among the best—making it more successful in one year than the leading brands in the industry, as well as the only market within the company to earn any revenue.
Overcoming major barriers to entry to grow her brand demonstrated Leah’s marketing virtuoso and talent in building relationships organically. As someone who displays a proactive personality and impeccable customer relations, Leah was a perfect fit to represent The Agency’s New Developments sector, a division of the company that oversees projects from the ground-up in an all-encompassing capacity.
Before migrating to Los Angeles, Leah studied and practiced interior design in Phoenix, AZ., seeking inspiration from style icon Kelly Wearstler and developing an admiration for mid-century modern design and architecture along the way. While representing Casamigos Tequila, which is owned by George Clooney, Rande Gerber and Michael Meldman of Discovery Land Company, Leah was inspired to enter the real estate side of sales while entertaining clients on Meldman’s beautiful, private golf courses and learning the significant distinction between selling homes and selling a lifestyle.
Leah enjoys her eclectic, beachtown home of Venice where she leads an active, outdoor lifestyle and is happiest when surrounded by friends.
