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 over $95 million in residential real estate sales during 2018 alone, Meital is now one of the top-producing agents in the area’s highly competitive luxury market. And, having recently facilitated two 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 a 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.
