MWA W ELCOME
n some interesting but not entirely obvious ways, we are not only in the real estate business, but the moving business, as well, by securing dream homes and record-breaking home sales for our clients as they change addresses. And while M|W|A has not moved far geographically, we have made a serious power move—starting a new season with a new partnership with global real estate brokerage COMPASS, whose progressive aspirations and ability is not only formidable, it is a mirror of the ambitions, energies and client-centric sensibilities of our team. Expect the combination of innovation, technology, and support that results from this partnership to forge new horizons for both our business and relationships. An alliance like this one only allows us to better serve our clients, which is the backbone of what we do and believe. From this move our team—and by proxy, our clients—anticipate having an immediate impact on the market, increasing our dominance in coastal Orange County. We live in an extraordinary region, in extraordinary times, and another season presents new beginnings. Look for new listings in our Address Book, including the gorgeous home on the cover of this issue, 11 Needle Grass in Shady Canyon, and our Final View, 41 Tide Watch in Crystal Cove. In between these pages, peruse Art & Culture for the work of designer Shinichiro Ogata; Design for discovery in Mexico City, Wanderlust for a pearl in Japan, and Philanthropy for a look at the do-good, give-back Decorative Arts Society. Your move!
All the best,
