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 $125 million to date in 2020, 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 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 for 2019.
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 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. Meital is a proud sponsor of the SchoolPower Real Estate Honor Roll and also donates to multiple high school athletic teams.
There is nothing more reassuring than working with a true professional, and Meital is that. She calmly guided us through some complicated and challenging situations and was able to find the right buyer and negotiate a fair price. Meital is quick to respond, extremely knowledgeable, upfront and honest. We would absolutely recommend working with her!
Jill has been amazing (and fun!) to work with. House hunting, remodeling, renting, listing - it can all be a daunting and frustrating process! But we always felt like we were getting honest answers and sound advice from Jill. She treated us more like a trusted friend than just a client and we will definitely stick with her and the Meital Taub team for all our real estate needs. We originally met Jill when we were looking at a new home she was listing. Since then she has helped us to: assess details of our Laguna Beach remodel to maximize value, select an interior designer, find a perfect rental while we’re under construction. During our time working together she has learned exactly what excites us in a home and is very selective showing us new properties that she thinks we’ll love and keeping us informed about market movements. She strikes a great balance between being attentive/responsive but not being at all pushy or aggressive. I would give Jill and her team the highest recommendation to friends.
Jill was always available when we needed her. She worked diligently to close our sale. We were confident that she got us the best price possible for our house. We highly recommend her!
