A LETTER FROM

ADRIENNE BRANDES

REPRESENTING BUYERS AND SELLERS OF LUXURY RESIDENTIAL PROPERTY REQUIRES SO MUCH MORE THAN A REAL ESTATE LICENSE AND CONNECTION TO THE INTERNET. Handling any real estate transaction at any price point requires complex skill. The agents at the top of their game work 24/7, constantly updating information on changing market conditions, maintaining relationships with financial sources, managing advertising and marketing for clients, and perhaps most importantly, serving as a sounding board for every client’s myriad list of concerns. I personally often feel like I am actually a psychologist with a California real estate license. Frankly, I wouldn’t have it any other way. I want to be close to my clients, sharing a bond of trust and building lasting relationships. For this reason, I work alone. No assistant, no team, no associates to handle my business. This is a life practice that works for me, and I’m proud of my success as a result of adhering to my goal. I will work for you, and I will work with you at every turn of the transaction. And that is a promise.

THE PREMIER HOME TOUR OF ORANGE COUNTY The CDM Home Tour is the premier home tour in the Newport Beach/Corona del Mar area. 2,000+ attendees get the opportunity to take a rare glimpse behind the closed, architecturally stunning doors of some of Newport's most beautiful and intriguing homes. The tour features six homes, breakfast at Fashion Island® (Le Pain Quotidien), lunch at Sherman Gardens, with the day concluding at a Bliss Home Design cocktail party. In its 44-year history, this event has raised a significant amount of money for student programs at Corona del Mar Middle and High School. The PTA benefits every student in the classroom and includes funding for a new student resource center on campus, funding for the equipment required to establish a student-run TV station called Trident TV on campus, and also direct teacher grants for items needed in the classroom, such as iPads and musical instruments. When asked how she wanted to set this home tour apart, Kameron Radovanovic, one of the event's co-chairs, said, “I made an effort this year to bring the designers and builders into the homes during the tour to discuss the home features with attendees. Many times I have attended similar home tours and have so many questions about materials.” Barclay Butera and Ray Langhammer were the two designers at 226 Poinsettia. They both worked together on the fun day to answer the patrons' many questions. Together, they were able to create approachable elegance and glamorous interiors inspired by fashion and the coast. They took a classic approach to the design and added a fresh twist to flawlessly integrate traditional, transitional, and contemporary interiors all together. It was a crowd favorite. The Home Tour was chaired by Kameron Radovanovic and Michele Caston. Michele has been chairing the event for the past seven years and has raised over $1.5 million during her time. This year she co-chaired with Radovanovic, who will be taking over the Home Tour next year.

THE EVOLU TION OF

C O R O N A Corona del Mar, a coastal town in Southern California, is known for its effortless charm, boat-filled harbor, and friendly neighbors. But before it became the most sought-after town with unmatched real estate, it was farmland. Over the course of 100 years, this beachfront bluff would go from $100 per lot to prices today — over $20,000,000 for an oceanfront property. If it weren’t for George Hart and his daring mind, Corona del Mar may have never become what it is today. At the turn of the 20th century, George Hart caught a vision for the undeveloped beachfront farmland that could only be reached by boat at high tide from the peninsula or by way of the Back Bay's muddy dirt road. But to Hart, the land seemed like an opportunity to develop a romantic seaside community. In June 1904, Hart purchased more than 700 acres of land for $150 an acre and named the soon-to-be town Corona del Mar — the Crown of the Sea. The Village hasn’t changed much since it was designed in 1904. 2,300 tracts were created at 30 x 120 feet, and by the end of August, they were ready to sell. An advertisement ran in Santa Ana’s Daily Evening Blade offering beach lots at $750 and the rest for $100 — property like that

1900

sells for over $9,000,000 today. Nine lots sold before the end of the year, but when the new year came in 1905, no lots sold; nor in 1906. At the end of 1906, Hart gave 360 acres back, leaving the Village with 347 acres. In the years following, very few lots sold and less than a dozen houses were built. George Hart counted his loss and traded all of Corona del Mar for 5,000 acres in Riverside in 1916. F.D. Cornell & Co. now owned the land and quickly went to work. Cornell built a hotel, redid the pier, and renamed all the streets. Flower street names graced Corona del Mar, starting with Acacia and making their way to Poppy. Those streets still remain the same in our beloved Village today. In 1923, Corona del Mar was brought into the city of Newport Beach. Cityhood was an exciting change for Corona del Mar because it meant city amenities — like running water, electricity, and roads — including the Pacific Coast Highway. By 1926, the Coast Highway ran all the way through Corona del Mar, making it more easily accessible. To top off the 1920s, the Goldenrod Footbridge was built in 1928. The 240-foot-long bridge finally connected the north and east sides of the city, which allowed residents to easily access the beach over the “Pacific Canyon.”

Corona del Mar was brought into the city of Newport Beach. This meant city amenities for the charming Village.

The Great Depression in the early 1930s put real estate on hold. But as the Depression ended in 1936, sales began to rise again — including the notable sale of the corner lot on Pacific Coast Highway and Poppy. Mathilda MacCulloch and her daughter Marguerite bought the lot after a trip to England. She hired an architect and built a home for $10,000. She later opened the home as the Hurley Bell, a retreat for Hollywood celebrities: Howard Hughes, Bette Davis, and Humphrey Bogart were just a few. In 1948, Mathilda died and Marguerite married. The Hurley Bell was leased out to different restaurants over the years, including our local favorite Five Crowns, the oldest original restaurant in Corona del Mar today. As real estate became more popular among the celebrities, a local realtor moved into town — John Sherrod Harris. His first order of business? Marketing and selling a 100-foot waterfront home on Ocean Boulevard. The estate was listed for $11,750; with inflation, that equals a mere $180,000 today. But as we know, those lots now sell for more than $10,000,000. In addition to his prized estate, Harris also offered lots all throughout the Village. Sand lots went for $850. And while people could buy lots, very few could build on them due to the war. But once World War II ended, people flocked to the charming blufftop beach town.

1940

In the late 1940s, veterans settled in, building houses, opening up businesses, and bringing in visitors to enjoy the pristine beaches. A school and post office opened up, along with the nautical-themed Port Theater. The Port Theater is the oldest business in Corona del Mar today. Corona del Mar had everything a little family needed. As the Village became more popular, it began to expand, and by 1960, Shore Cliffs, Bayside, Irvine Terrace, Cameo Shores, and Cameo Highlands had all been developed. And while Corona del Mar continues to develop, it still remains the village on the bluffs. It contains some of the most sought-after real estate in the world. Not only is the land right on the ocean, but the community is one that’s hard to beat. It is filled with history, beauty, and friendly neighbors. There’s nothing quite like the Crown of the Sea.

The Great Depression hit and growth came to a halt.

The post office on Orchid Avenue came to Corona del Mar. The Port Theater on Pacific Coast Highway opened — and remains the oldest business in Corona del Mar today.

1945 After World War II ended, veterans settled in Corona del Mar, building houses, opening up businesses, and attracting visitors.

1936 The corner lot on Poppy and Pacific Coast Highway was sold and built. The home, quaintly known as the Hurley Bell, became a retreat for celebrities.

1948

1952-1960 As the town began to grow, Shore Cliffs, Bayside, Irvine Terrace, Cameo Shores, and Cameo Highlands were developed.

The owner of the Hurley Bell died and the house was leased out to restaurants, eventually becoming a local favorite in 1965: Five Crowns, the oldest original restaurant in Corona del Mar. 15 | www.AdrienneBrandes.com

ask ADRIENNE 1. How do you negotiate the sale of a home? My number one rule of any negotiation is to do it face-to-face. Body language and physical responses give you important clues in understanding everyone involved. Second, whether you are representing the buyer or the seller, it is extremely important to understand your client's motivation for buying or selling a home. I’ve found that a deal is not always about the price; the terms of the deal are just as important. For example, occasionally the sellers don’t have a replacement property to move to once the house has closed. In this case, the buyer that offers to let the seller stay in the home free of charge or at a reduced rate for a couple of months will often get a better price. This can also work the other way around. Lastly, never be afraid to ask for more than what you want. Negotiations always end up settling in the middle — so ask for more to begin with.

2. What are some of the tactics to use in negotiations to make sure both the buyer and seller are happy? Keep focused, keep calm. Be tough, be honest, never let them see you sweat — and never, ever be confrontational. Always give the other side a chance to offer their point of view and listen with an open mind. The negotiation will not commence unless both the buyer and seller are happy. It has to be a win-win situation for both parties. Very often it can be a small token or a kind gesture that will get the other party to move. I’ve seen $8 million deals start to fizzle because of an argument over a piece of furniture.

3. How does negotiating high-end luxury homes differ from negotiating starter homes? When negotiating high-end luxury homes, in most cases, you need to get creative. No deal or personality is ever the same — especially when working with high-networth people. They are used to negotiating deals themselves, remaining calm, and not letting the other side spook them into making an irrational decision. As an agent, I make sure to maintain good relationships with other agents in my area because they will very often be sitting across from me when negotiating a deal. And never, ever, ever be afraid to ask — even if it seems outrageous. You never know.

4. How do you prepare for negotiation? What details do you consider? First off, you better know every single deal point and understand what motivates your client. As a trained therapist and certified negotiator, I know self-confidence is key. Additionally, I always consider the source. Negotiating a deal with an elderly client who may be a recent widow is a completely different ballgame than negotiating with a person that may be a negotiator themselves. Be kind, smile, be positive. And always stay with the issue at hand.

5. How do you deal with disagreements and confrontations in the negotiation process? Always, always, always remain calm. There will be disagreements and there will be confrontations. As I said, residential real estate is a very emotional business. If your demeanor is perceived as unsteady, you lose. Emotions can get in the way of representing your client in the best possible manner.

6. What is most important to you in the negotiation process and why? The most important thing to me in the negotiation process is to represent my client with honesty and integrity and to keep their needs in mind at all times. No deal is worth compromising your reputation.

6. What do you believe is the closing factor in negotiation? Always use time to your advantage. Very often, the other side will try to create conflict by rushing you into a decision. And quite simply, a successful negotiation is when all parties walk away feeling as though they won.

We loved working with her and recommend her to anyone buying or selling a home!” ~ Elena and Jeff Singletary, Attorney at Law | Newport Beach
