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. Meital has also been named the #1 Luxury Sales Team for all First Team | Christie’s International for 2019.
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 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 and best prices for my clients,” 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 exceeded expectations and closed the sale at $10.375 Million and donated her commission in its entirety. Currently, Meital also serves on the Board of Trustees for SchoolPower, the Laguna Beach Education Foundation.
Meital holds a Bachelor of Laws LLB and served as an officer in the Air Force.
We just purchased a new home with Meital. We bought our first house in California years ago with her, and knew that she is the only one we would go with to buy a new house. Meital is so knowledgeable about the market, that we bought a house that wasn’t even listed yet. You can always count on Meital to work her hardest for you all hours of the day or night. Meital is an incredible agent—one based on honesty, experience, work ethic, and professionalism. Without a doubt, Meital is definitely the one to call when buying or selling a home.
Meital was one of the best agents we have ever worked with. We have worked with agents around the world and by far Meital and her team were the most professional, dedicated and consistent of anyone we have ever worked with. Her communication was outstanding and she is a fantastic negotiator. We would recommend Meital Taub Luxury Group to anyone buying or selling property.
Meital Taub needs the title of wonder woman! After interviewing other people to sell my house I met with Meital. She was impressive! She knows her market and knows her buyers. She said, "I know some people who might be interested in your home, can I bring them by?" I said, "sure". Those are the people who bought it ! I had a contract in just 5 days. I never thought selling could be so easy. And her staff is great to work with too!
