Meital Taub handled the sale of our $10.3 million dollar home in Laguna Beach as seller's exclusive representative. Her level of diligence and professionalism was truly exceptional. Having both a law and business degree, she has all the tools necessary to address the complicated issues that inevitably surface in real estate transactions. I would highly recommend her to any seller or buyer looking for representation on coastal property in Orange County.

Peter D

As the CEO of one of the largest mentoring agencies in the nation, Big Brothers Big Sisters OC & IE, I had the incredibly important job of finding a broker to represent a recent very generous estate gift. With a $10+M on a unique piece property in Laguna Beach, I needed a true professional who not only understood how to operate at that price point, but who was a true professional. Meital exceeded expectations in every category. Listing and selling the estate at the highest possible value in the shortest possible time. She is a professional, a philanthropist and a class act. I give her the highest possible recommendation.

Sloan K

This was our first home purchase in California. Initially we weren’t in a hurry but Ashleigh worked patiently behind the scenes gathering info and inventory to present to us. She really listened to our wants and needs. She was available 7 days a week for a consult, a viewing, or just a quick chat to work through some ideas. Once we did find our “home” the fun began! The closing process was VERY complicated but Ashleigh and her team worked miracles with the outside listing agent, contractors and even our bank to make it happen! If we ever decide to move again, I wouldn’t hesitate to call Ashleigh Mann - we highly recommend her!

Andrea Heins

Meital was perfect from the day she listed my house until the day we closed. My house had been on the market for over 365 days without 1 offer. Meital looked at the house and I felt she immediately understood the house and what we needed to do to make the house look it’s best. She has great taste and her suggestions were perfect. She made me feel like I was her only client - she was always available. Her marketing plan was well thought out and she created a huge amount of interest in the house. She staged each showing and within 2 months we had an offer, which was not immediately acceptable. But Meital has amazing negotiating skills and we were able to agree on acceptable terms. That isn’t the end of the story. It turns out we hadn’t closed all of our building permits and now Meital really had to keep this deal together while we took care of our permit issues. She did it all! I can’t say enough about her professionalism and ability to get it done and done right! Meital added so much to a difficult sale. I recommend her without any hesitation- she is head and shoulders above any other realtor I’ve ever worked with. Fantastic in so many ways.

Vallerie V. Magory, Esq.

We were planning on buying a house in Laguna Beach, a significant purchase for us. We narrowed down the list of realtors to a few, there were several with glowing reviews. I found her website and sent her a message early on a Sunday morning. When she called me within five minutes, I knew she was the one for us. Meital is very organized and responsive. She guided us through the process and we always felt she was our advocate. Since she acted as a buyer’s agent for us, her meticulous attention to details and excellent knowledge of the area ensured that we were always on top of things that need to be addressed before closing. Our new home is absolutely lovely but it is also a 40+ year-old property on typically challenging Laguna Beach terrain, so it was extra important that there were no unpleasant surprises. The result was…. We hope this is our last house, but if it’s not, there’s no one else we would consider.

Apple Edwards

Meital spent lots of time educating us on the area and helping us decide where we wanted to buy. She’s incredibly knowledgeable and tireless. She started as our real estate agent and became our good friend in the process. We highly recommend her! She’s the best.

Cameron and Hillary Lester

Cindy Lanphier

I am traditionally not a review writer however I can't speak enough about my experiences with Maryam Samini! She found a buyer to purchase our existing home, she also negotiated the purchase of our New home. Her expertise in the market, her availability weekends and after hours and know how was woven into the transaction! Dealing with the buyer, a seller and the demands of our lender Maryam was so much more than expected or ever experienced in years past. If you're looking for an intelligent skilled Realtor to find, negotiate work in all facets of the transaction, she was impressive! As a business owner living the daily grind I continue to be blown away. We are weeks later and still she is available and willing. Thank you Maryam for all your efforts and expertise!

Donte Andry

Meital and her team were fantastic! During our first meeting with Meital, we knew she was the right agent for us. She was extremely knowledgeable, professional, and up-front / honest with us. She did a great job marketing our property and we sold it after 4 weeks. All along the way, she was available and helped us through the negotiating, inspection and closing process. I would highly recommend her to anyone selling their home. A true professional.

Meital was very patient, supportive and knowledgeable throughout the process of the house hunting. It took a long time to find the right house, and for many months she was patient and helpful introducing various neighborhoods, helping to weigh pros and cons of various locations until the perfect balance was finally found! She is extremely professional, patient, knowledgeable and just a joy to work with.

Luiza Miranyan

Meital was able to do in under 60 days what others could not do in over 600 days. She applied her knowledge, experience and the many resources at her disposal to market our property, receive a serious offer within 3% of our asking price and close the deal ahead of schedule. From the beginning, she took ownership of the process and was confident yet realistic about the prospects. She is a problem solver who seamlessly navigated the unpredictable waters of a closing. Meital took a difficult situation to a successful conclusion in short order with minimal involvement by us. She has our enthusiastic and unqualified recommendation

Blaine Curtis

As a seller who lived in Atlanta, it was critical to have a representative who knew the Laguna market, knew the process, kept in touch and most importantly, was I person I could absolutely trust. Meital met all of these criteria perfectly. She also demonstated that she knew how to negotiate and as a result I felt that she helps us maximize the sale proceeds. In short, she was a professional in everthing she did…

H.W. - Laguna Beach

Meital was absolutely marvelous! The consummate professional she provided us with excellent service every step of the way. From making the decision to list, to setting the price, writing copy for and photography of our home, to showing the home, negotiating the sale, and walking us through all the steps of closing. We couldn't have asked to have a better advocate and professional working for us. We strongly and without reservation recommend her for your home sale or purchase!

Kris and Jim Thornton

Meital, is in a league of her own amongst the OC high-end real estate community. Her intellect, confidence, trustworthiness and professionalism during the purchase of our Laguna Beach dream home provided us with a profound sense of security during what otherwise would have been a very stressful transaction. My wife and I endorse Meital 100%

Rob and Melissa Lane

I am very fortunate to have met Meital. She is very professional, easy to deal with, very honest and truly looks out for the best interest of her clients. I was out of the country on vacation when she called and told me she found the perfect home for me. I have been looking for several months and had no luck especially in this competitive market. Then I met Meital and she found an off market home for me. She emailed the photos, negotiated with the seller and when I got back from vacation, all I had to do was look at the home. It was the perfect home!!! She is definitely a great listener since the home had everything I was looking for and more. I will defintely recommend Meital to my family and friends. I could not have asked for a better realtor. Thank you Meital!!

Dorothy S.

My wife, Lorri, and I worked with Meital Taub during our recent relocation from Virginia to southern California. The relocation benefits offered through my company provided orientation services and realtors through Quest. While Meital was not originally on the list of realtors working with the relocation company, it became apparent to us through referrals that her market knowledge was superior in the areas that we were most interested in. We asked for and received approval to work with Meital which turned out to be a great decision. Meital worked with the relocation company to quickly meet their requirements and the relocation company commented positively on her follow through and service orientation.

While representing us, Meital quickly earned our confidence by consistently demonstrating the following required skills: • Good rapport with other agents – Because Meital is active in the market and has earned a reputation of high integrity, other agents were happy to work with her. This carried over to benefit her clients. For example, other agents were often willing to meet Meital’s requests and provide us with important information. • In-depth market knowledge – Meital provided us with both the qualitative and quantitative market research that informed our decision. It was always evident that Meital was well prepared for our meetings. She conducted extensive research which spanned many areas such as neighborhood positives and concerns, price history and trends, and other pertinent info. The house that we ended up buying was not listed and we only found it through Metial’s current knowledge and connections. She also has a network of quality specialists that we were able to draw upon for added consultation like geologists and other professionals. • Negotiation skills – Meital provided good counsel throughout the negotiation process. She dealt with matters with the appropriate amount of urgency and kept us focused on the most important issues. • Outstanding Service levels – Meital demonstrated excellent availability and she worked with our schedule as our trips from the east coast were limited and needed to be most productive. • Consistent Follow through – Meital continued to help us with issues after the sale was complete. She helped us acclimate to the area and continued to provide excellent counsel as we worked through the move in process. • Integrity – We had the utmost confidence in Meital because she consistently demonstrated her approach to do the right thing for others. I’m happy to recommend Meital Taub because I’m confident in her character and abilities. She made our relocation experience a positive one

J.R. Laguna Beach

We were 8 months pregnant with our second child when our landlord said we needed to move in three months because he was selling the home we were renting. Besides being totally overwhelmed, we had no direction in our housing search; should we rent or buy, go for our dream home or be a fiscally conservative, downsize or expand. This was the state in which we met Meital. She completely dedicated herself to finding our family a home… not just a house. She began by showing us the full range and then was able to hone in on our feedback to narrow the field to “our style,” something we hadn’t even been able to articulate ourselves.

She also did not try a steer us towards what would make her profits bigger, but what really fit for us. For example, she took the rental option seriously and showed a ton of rentals that would have clearly meant a tiny drop in the bucket for her given the amount of daily effort she was putting in for us.

Additionally, as an absolute personal loving gesture, she became buds with our three year old which afforded me the capacity to quickly assess a place and move on to the next. Her warmth made en enormous difference, as one can imagine that schlepping a 3 year old around to 5 viewings a day while 8 months pregnant is hardly anyone’s idea of fun.

We landed our perfect home when Meital called us to tell us that a fantastic home had just come on the market. She was able to get us in immediately, even before the broker’s preview. Before anyone else had a chance to bid, we had already put in an offer and were in negotiations. She knows how to maneuver things to put her clients at an advantage, which is essential in this cutthroat real-estate market that we all have to navigate.

During the escrow process we had our second child and Meital basically made everything happen. She responded to every inquiry immediately and thoughtfully and even kept track of all of the things that my “baby brain” was not able to. She connected us to solid insurance and loan professionals who came through during an intense family moment when we struggled to follow through. Meital was present for all of the inspections which meant a lot to us given our family demands. She made it all happen in the end.

In sum, I admire her professionally and personally. She is incredibly committed, smart, competent, and caring. We truly felt taken care of by her during an incredibly stressful time. Anyone who is lucky enough to have the opportunity to have Meital on their side is setting themselves up success. She is absolutely the only realtor I would ever work with and I recommend her without any reservation.

Maile O’Hara, Ph.D.

Meital is outstanding in her field. She is knowledgeable, thorough, communicative, organized and warm. She aces all of the primary criteria that a real estate agent needs to be successful. She treats the owners like family, and her ability to balance your needs as a homeowner/seller with market fluctuations, all along detailing, via email and phone, changes and opportunities, makes her unparalleled in service and quality.

A Happy Client

My husband and I were blown away at Meital's professionalism, expertise and attention to detail. She handled absolutely everything and remained 'present and available' every single step of the way. Her ability to negotiate and do the best by us was nothing less than 5 gold stars. We highly HIGHLY recommend buying a house with Meital - it was completely effortless.

S.B. Laguna Beach

Meital was a true professional throughout the entire home selling process. She took a very complicated escrow and made it look easy. I cannot recommend her enough.


Meital negotiated an unbelievable price for us on our new home, well below the market. After having worked with us on the sale of our home, she was able to lead us to the best fit for our family in our new neighborhood. Meital is detail oriented and was with us every step of the way on the purchase. She has a terrific understanding of the market and uses the available comp data to clearly develop the best and appropriate offer. We would definitely recommend Meital to help you with both the sale of your home and hoping you to locate and purchase your new home.

Shawn Doll

We could not be happier with our experience with Meital. She is an exceptionally focused, warm and thorough professional who makes you feel like you are her only client. Her knowledge of the market, extensive research and marketing savvy provided us a swift and painless sale of our home in less than 2 months. Meital went beyond our expectations and we would recommend anyone to entrust her with the sale of their home.

Katie S.

We had a great experience with Meital. She is such a tremendous help every single step of the way in our home selling process. - She is responsive. She always picks up her phone and answers her texts and emails. Any time I had any questions she would answer immediately and spend any time needed to explain the details. - She is prompt. This goes for everything: paperwork, calling other agents, getting you the answers you need, viewings, etc. - She is patient, understanding, and knows the business really well. - She is personal and professional just the right amount. One more thing…Her negotiating skills are just amazing. I would highly recommend her to anyone selling their home


Meital hit the ground running in helping me sell my father's home. She was extremely responsive to my needs and had great solutions to every challenge that arose during the selling process. Meital is very knowledgeable about the housing market and her attention to detail is outstanding. The perfect balance of professionalism and warmth, I would highly recommend Meital.


I couldn’t have made a better choice than hiring Meital to represent my family and I during our recent purchase in Laguna Beach. She is experienced and knowledgable in what to look for when purchasing a house. Additionally, Meital is an excellent negotiator and always had my back. She cares about the process and protecting her clients - what more could you ask for when making one of the bigger purchases in life? If I could add another star I would!

Sasha P.

I personally had no appreciation or regard for real estate agents until I met Meital. Meital is super efficient about what she does and frankly was wholly instrumental in enabling my wife and I to get a phenomenonal property. Given her origin, tough but fair negotiation comes natural to her and is delivered excellently. She guided us through the process with transparency and foresight. Meital is a true professional and the only person to really work with for her chosen territories if you want to optimize the outcome.


Working with Meital completely changed our perception of what defines a good agent and how incredibly valuable it is to have a good agent to guide you through every stage of the process. Meital is exceptional in every respect. She is immensely knowledgeable about a wide range of important factors from market trends and investment potential to design and renovation issues to contract and negotiating technicalities. She is amazingly responsive, highly organized, covers all angles and details, and is completely upfront, transparent, and honest. We really appreciated and in fact deeply valued her no-nonsense opinions about neighborhoods, house features, negotiations, renovation ideas and potential, everything. She was also extremely patient with us as we went back and forth on which neighborhood would be best for us, what kind of house we wanted, and how much renovation we could tolerate. She made us feel like we were her only clients, which we were not, and always had plenty of time for us to show houses or just discuss options. It was clear that her main goal was for us to be happy at the end of the day. When we finally found a house we wanted to purchase, she had suggestions and options for people to do inspections, repairs, mortgage, insurance, and the rest. She did not push them on us, but we ended up using all of her suggestions and each of them turned out to be fantastic. For mortgage and insurance, her contacts (she gave several options) had better deals than our own trusted people and we went with hers. Meital also proved to be extremely level-headed and smart when our negotiations and our closing got a little hairy. She was a voice of reason when our emotions started to get the best of us. Through it all she was friendly, supportive, and a pleasure to work with.

G+k H

We found Meital over the internet and asked if she would set up a day of viewings for us for our visit to Laguna. She was fabulous. She set up a perfect day of viewings which combined precise attention to detail, comprehensive local knowledge, and an attentive, naturally charming personality. It is also abundantly clear that Meital would be a fantastic advocate in a property negotiation. You would want Meital on your side. She will fight for you, tooth and nail, to get the deal done, at the right price. We could not recommend her more highly.


Meital is the best agent I ever worked with. She is knowledgeable, attentive to details, efficient and professional. She rented my house in a very short time. I highly recommend her.
