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.
I am a realtor myself, but not an expert in Laguna Beach. I was unable to market my home as I lacked the local knowledge and marketing forte. I searched extensively for a Realtor with qualities that met our needs which were; "most outstanding, proficient, knowledgeable, helpful, savvy negotiating and expeditious in communication". Meital Taub met and exceeded all the qualifications I was searching for. After being on the market unsuccessfully for 2 years Meital and her team with their real estate magical expertise sold my home in 4 months and the smoothest escrow I've ever dealt with. Marie Dannelley is very diligent, she was so detailed, conscientious and meticulous in showing our home, she always remembered every minuscule detail of our home and would provide immediate feedback which was very helpful. I hands down recommend Meital Taub Luxury Group for any and all real estate needs.
Jill's expertise, experience, efficiency and expediency in representing us for our home purchase was PHENOMENAL! We had a complex purchase with multiple contingencies that include the seller securing a replacement property, floating escrow date and other conditions that could have adversely affected our purchase, but Jill made sure that the multiple interactions and transactions went through without any flaws. She's got a wonderful sense in negotiations that can only come from her extensive experience. I'm certain that the purchase of our dream home would not have come to fruition. Thank you so much, Jill!
Brandon was always courteous and professional. Promptly contacted us with answers to our questions. He went out of his way to help us find a home to rent. We will definitely be contacting him in the future.
