About Us

Our mission is to consistently exceed a client’s expectations by providing a sophisticated web-based informational resource for both buyers and sellers supported by consultative services from San Clemente real estate agents who value their clients more than their commissions.

We are a real estate company focused on the basics of good business: hard work, exceptional training, continued education, and customer service that always exceeds expectations. San Clemente Coastal Living is a team of highly skilled specialists dedicated to knowledge, exceptional communication, and customer satisfaction. It seems like a pretty basic concept to grasp: in order for a “team-based” concept to be successful, you have to put together an exceptional group of individuals dedicated to a common mission.

Our websites support offices promoting a team concept for the benefit of the client based on specialization and consultative-based customer service. Our San Clemente real estate agents work in tandem, rather than against each other, in order to provide superior customer service to our clients while maintaining a familial atmosphere in the office that encourages collaboration and teamwork.

San Clemente Specialists

Being successful in a real estate transaction now falls into two distinct categories: Specialized Information and Specialized Service. Only a trained professional in a specific community can provide the true range of information that buyers and sellers need in this marketplace. Only a company focused on customer service and client relationships can truly earn a commission.

How does a team member of San Clemente Coastal Living become a specialist? Three things: Education, Training, and Experience. All members of the San Clemente Coastal Living team earn broker designations; whether a managing broker or an executive assistant, we are dedicated to the highest distinction of license that a real estate professional can earn. All members of San Clemente Coastal Living are committed to consistent and organized training and systems so that we can deliver quality services to our clients. Each team member is committed to education in all areas that affect the real estate market: the history of the community, architecture, construction, market trends, current events, and lifestyle. This knowledge and training can only be realized by fully immersing ourselves within the community. Only by experiencing the community and all of its opportunities for long periods of time is a specialist prepared to deliver the level of knowledge expected and required.

Team Concept

We are real estate consultants are primarily concerned with the needs of their clients, not on creating competition amongst themselves and solely focusing on the next closed deal. In order to provide superior customer services to all of our clients without sacrificing personal attention to individuals, San Clemente Coastal Living employs a team-based consultative approach where the managing brokers, real estate consultants, and office staff work in tandem to ensure that our clients are receiving the best possible service. Unlike a typical real estate agency, our consultants are not in competition with each other but work together with the goal of maintaining excellent professional relationships with our clients and prospects. If we have a mission, it is this: The Client Is Always More Important Than The Deal.

Before the Internet era, real estate brokers and agents held all of the “secrets” to the real estate marketplace. Buyers and sellers relied on Realtors to be experts in all communities because the information was only accessible to those within the industry. These days, anyone who owns a computer can pull up information about different communities and current homes for sale. So why does a large segment of Realtors still feel that they hold all of the cards when it comes to community information and customer service in real estate? Imagine if a doctor or lawyer claimed that they were experts in all fields within medicine or the law…would you believe them?

The professional real estate community is currently divided into two ways of thinking: The tried and traditional vs. the new and progressive.

TRADITIONAL:

  • One-stop-shop for every area and every transaction type
  • Buyers and sellers solely rely on Realtors for market information and current opportunities in the marketplace
  • Agents are dependent on national brand-based offices to provide legitimacy to their business services and are forced to be in competition with each other rather than collaborating for the good of the client
  • Realtors practice a sales-based customer service model, and buyers and sellers are entirely dependent on which agent spends the most money for marketing

PROGRESSIVE:

  • Become a true specialist in a particular community or transaction type
  • Specialized websites providing buyers and sellers with the resources to research all of their preferences
  • These community websites support offices that promote a team concept for the benefit of the client based on specialization, collaboration, and consultative-based customer service
  • In today’s challenging marketplace, a real estate consultant is focused on the client’s needs and personal preferences, not closing the deal
