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 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 is the most thorough knowledgeable agent I’ve ever worked with. She’s calm & thoughtful in the face of controversy & we intend to use her to find our next home.
Maryam was wonderful to work with. She was very professional, understood the real estate market very well, and was always available. I highly recommend her and I plan on working with her again in the future.
Very professional and knowledgeable of the local Laguna market. Excellent negotiator and communication skills. Was able to effectively negotiate with seller on hard offer. Would highly recommend.
