2017 has been a year of extraordinary growth for First Team Real Estate, the independent real estate brokerage that’s facilitated several of Southern California’s most noteworthy luxury residential transactions this year–the latest of which closed in Yorba Linda earlier this month for $6.095 million, marking the highest sale in the community’s history, per MLS records. Leveraging their own knowledge and experience as renowned luxury real estate experts, along with the unparalleled resources and support to which they have access as agents with First Team, Edward Englehart and Leslie Cole represented the buyer of 22750 Hidden Hills Road, a massive estate sprawling out over 3.1 acres of coveted land, exceeding all expectations in the process.
“Helping clients buy and sell luxury real estate is an art–one that requires a seasoned ability to deliver a true lifestyle experience that’s on par with the clients’ needs and expectations,” remarked Cameron Merage, Founder and CEO of First Team Real Estate. “Investing in our sales associates has been a core part of our company’s philosophy since day one, but in 2017, we have placed a heightened focus on empowering our agents to successfully help clientele navigate the local luxury markets. Record-high transactions like this one are the ultimate testament to the value in our approach.”
According to Q3 data released by market reporting agency Trendgraphix, First Team Real Estate has closed 935 transactions of greater than $1 million across Southern California in 2017, during the nine months ended September 30–a 34% increase year-over-year. In the same time frame, sales volume for luxury transactions grew by 40%.
“Results like these secure First Team Real Estate’s position as the leading independent real estate brokerage in Southern California–and they’re proof positive that more consumers trust our associates to achieve their dreams of luxury home ownership,” stated Michael Mahon, President of First Team Real Estate.
In addition to an unrivaled array of resources and tools designed to help agents deliver the highest possible caliber of service throughout every phase of the real estate transaction, First Team Real Estate is the only brokerage in Orange County to boast strategic partnerships with some of the world’s most prominent luxury real estate brands, including Christie’s International Real Estate and Luxury Portfolio. Through these affiliations, First Team promises its luxury clientele a substantially greater opportunity for success.
