No discussion on Orange County’s coastal marketplace would be complete without a mention of Meital Taub, who over the course of her career has become one of the industry’s most sought after luxury real estate experts, impressing clients and peers alike with her proven ability to deliver results. Having personally closed about $100 million year over year in residential real estate sales, Meital is one of the top-producing agents in the area’s highly competitive luxury market. As was recently announced in the Wall Street Journal by Real Trends and Tom Ferry, she’s currently one of the top 200 real estate agents out of 1.4 million in the U.S.—a fact that places her among the top .01% agents nationwide. Having recently facilitated several high-profile transactions—representing the seller of 24 Lagunita Drive, the $15 million listing that was named a winner in HGTV’s 2018 Ultimate House Hunt, along with the buyer of 40 N. La Senda, the historic Laguna residence known as the Lighthouse Estate—she is now among the most recognizable names in luxury real estate nationwide. In fact, Meital’s proven ability to creatively drive organic exposure for her clientele is major point of differentiation, setting her apart from the competition.
“I truly enjoy what I do as a real estate professional, and feel very lucky that I’m able to help people achieve their most important goals,” Meital remarked. “It’s both an honor and a source of daily inspiration.”
A longtime Laguna Beach resident who’s a mother of three children—all of whom attend the city’s public schools—Meital also offers an invaluable firsthand perspective on the lifestyle for which the coastal area is so well known. Just as importantly, with over 20 years of experience dealing with complex contracts, finance and negotiations, not to mention marketing and advertising, she possesses a powerful skill set that affords clients a strategic and methodical approach to their most important objectives. What’s more, as a graduate of law and business school, she brings to the table unparalleled discipline and organization. Yet Meital’s most invaluable defining quality remains her ability to deliver an impeccable caliber of quality service. Since closing her first residential real estate transaction in late 2010, she has earned a well-deserved reputation for creating real estate experiences as smooth and stress-free as they are financially rewarding.
“For each buyer and seller I work with, my foremost objective is to deliver an absolutely stellar caliber of service,” Meital explained. “My clients trust me to provide sound guidance on decisions that entail their most valuable assets, and I don’t take that lightly. Because I work with a hands-on approach and a willingness to go to bat for my clientele, most of my business is based on referrals.”
A pillar in the local real estate community, Meital makes every effort to give back in a meaningful way. When she was chosen to represent the Big Brothers Big Sisters of Orange County in the sale of the grand estate located at 1570 Fayette Place—the largest donation ever received by that chapter—she closed the sale at $10.375 Million and donated her commission in its entirety. Currently, Meital also serves as a director of the Laguna Board of Realtors’ Charitable Assistance Fund.
Meital holds a Bachelor of Laws LLB and served as an officer in the Israeli Air force.
Meital was fantastic to work with. She made the entire process very easy and moved very quickly. I would highly recommend her.
Maryam was instrumental in helping us find a replacement property for our 1031 exchange. This was done almost all remotely since we do not live in the area. We gave her specific parameters to work with and she always gave us the best possible options both on and off-market. She is very detailed oriented, understanding of our situation and gives us the honest truth when it comes to her assessment of the property and with offers. In the end, she helped us land the property we wanted! During escrow, she was very persistent in making sure all documentation was given to us in a timely manner and always looked out for us during inspections. We highly highly recommend Maryam and will be using her again very soon for our primary home.
I had the pleasure of working with Meital Taub for my Laguna Beach home. We found her to be extremely savy and professional. She always responded to all texts and phone calls extremely promptly and has a flair for building rapport with her clients. We will use her again in the future.
