No discussion about Orange County’s coastal real estate 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, with nearly $140 million in 2020, Meital is one of the top-producing agents in the area’s highly competitive luxury market. As was 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 US—a fact that places her among the top .01% of agents nationwide. Meital’s team has also been named the #1 Luxury Sales Team in all of First Team | Christie’s International in 2020 for most sales over $1 million. In 2020, Meital received First Team’s highest honor: The Founders Award and recognition in First Team’s Hall of Fame.
Having recently facilitated several high-profile transactions, including 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, Meital is now among the most recognized figures in luxury real estate nationwide. In fact, her 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 I feel very fortunate that I’m able to help people achieve their most important goals,” Meital remarked. “We serve with purpose, and It’s both an honor and a source of daily inspiration.”
A longtime Laguna Beach resident with children in the city’s public schools, Meital offers an invaluable firsthand perspective on the lifestyle for which the coastal area is so well known. Just as importantly, with more than 20 years of experience dealing with complex contracts, finance and negotiations, not to mention marketing and advertising, she possesses a powerful skill set that provides clients with 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 her clientele.
“For each buyer and seller I work with, my foremost objective is to deliver an absolutely stellar caliber of service and the best financial outcome possible,” 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 (BBBS) 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. Today she is a governing board member of BBBS. Meital is a proud sponsor of the SchoolPower Real Estate Honor Roll and also donates to multiple high school athletic teams.
Meital is very knowledgeable, professional, honest and a fierce advocate. She was also very flexible when we decided to lease for a while. When we re-listed and received offers, she helped us weigh the offers and accept the one that we thought would close. Her team worked with us every step of the way facilitating any issues that came along. We will have here help us in buying a new home. We know that looking out for our best interest is her number one priority.
We are very satisfied with her excellent service. She is very professional, intelligent, and easy to work with. We highly recommended her.
Meital Taub and her team at Taub Properties, hands down is the most impressive group of realtors you could ever ask for! My husband and I, have an extreme eye for quality and attention to detail. We thought we might have a challenge with our condo since there are four flights of stairs with over 100 steps to get to it. However, the view is spectacular to say the least! Nonetheless, we knew the stairs might be a challenge for most buyers. Three of the top Brokers in Laguna Beach were referred to us. We set out to research each of them before meeting them. Family had asked us to meet Meital Taub & Tiffany Frey of Taub Properties. Meital & Tiffany were the first of the three teams, we met with and they were the last! After meeting Meital & seeing Tiffany again, we were impressed with their experience and knowledge of the market. Meital & Tiffany had no fear of listing our condo for $2.5M. The first day on the market, Meital & Tiffany had three private showings and two written offers! The third day we had an additional offer above the other offers. Two of the three were cash offers, one as little as 21 days. Then the work began, as Meital says. Here again, Meital Taub’s group did not disappoint! The amount of resources, the speed, smoothness, effortless ease & efficiency is their middle name! When you take this team of “powerhouses”, from Meital a former fighter pilot (that sold me!), Tiffany Frey an athlete in many ways, escrow to contractors, everything from A to Z, Taub Properties has the most impressive team you could ever ask for! Sheer perfection was our experience! They also represented us with the purchase of our new dream home!!! Just as spectacular and they did not miss a beat! This group is just as compassionate & professional as it could possibly be! We have made new friends and they will always be a part of our lives. Thank you Meital, Tiffany, Ashley, Lisa, Chris and everyone who made our dreams ABSOLUTELY come true!!!
