elcome to Prime – Coastal Orange County Edition

Graphic Design Melissa Koziel melissa.koziel@primeluxury.com

As one of the major perks of running Prime Luxury Property magazine, we are privy to a constant influx of information on the health of Coastal Orange County’s luxury real estate market. Judging by our latest market intelligence – featured on page 24 in this issue – the market is currently reaching a new 2016 highpoint, a sentiment also confirmed by the county’s leading agents. “A busy Spring market never really materialized this year – same as last year – but now in early June the market has picked up steam,” said Gloria Jewell at Teles Properties, adding. “I have a great deal of buyer interest, but pricing is important. They are not going to overpay even if there is a lack of inventory.” For more insights from Gloria, make sure to read about her fascinating career and unique take on the luxury market in the Agent Spotlight on page 50. Having embarked on her journey as a real estate professional at the young age of 20 – and at a time when the business was largely dominated by men – Gloria Jewell constantly expanded her professional expertise and skill set to make a name for herself. Now looking back at 35 years of hands-on experience, she ranges as a mainstay in the luxury homes market in Laguna Beach, where she has been residing for 32 years now. Another professional boasting with roots in Coastal Orange County is Michael Caruso, the listing agent behind this issue’s Masterpiece property on page 32. As the Executive Director of The Caruso Real Estate Group at Surterre Properties, Michael has been enjoying the coastal California lifestyle ever since marrying his wife and real estate partner Cristina, 36 years ago. Working in a family team environment with his wife and their son Phillip, a Broker Associate and sales partner, Caruso is proud to present the stunning bluff-front modern home at 37 Monarch Bay Drive in Dana Point – a textbook example in contemporary California living that checks all the latest amenities and trends. For a look into a more classic design on an equally stunning piece of property, look no further than the etstae that graces our cover this month. Built in 1930, it is rare that an oceanfront property

Contributing Editor Dirk Vogel dirk.vogel@primeluxury.com Sales Director Joe Rafael joe.rafael@primeluxury.com Office Administrator Natalie McCartney natalie.mccartney@primeluxury.com

offers an outdoor living space as large as this. With Italian-inspired architecture this historic home is a true find. 8 Rockledge Road in Laguna Beach is listed by Shauna Covington of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices. Speaking of presentation, the right marketing strategy for a luxury home can be the make or break of a successful sale. For the professional approach, we asked local luxury real estate professionals Georgina Jacobson (Coldwell Banker Previews International), Summer Lynne Perry (Surterre Properties), and Suzi Dailey (HÔM Sotheby’s International) about the secrets to building a convincing case for a home, found on page 48. Regardless of strategies and marketing angles, the most important news is that buyer interest is heating up as we enter the 2016 summer season. For the latest in luxury real estate, you’ve come to the right place. Thank you for reading and have a great summer. Sincerely,

Sales and Marketing Coordinator Jordan Schweitzer jordan.schweitzer@primeluxury.com Creative Director Luis Rodriguez

PRIME PROPERTY MASTERPIECE

E

xperience luxury coastal living in the fragrant ocean breeze. Located on a sprawling 20,799 square-foot bluff front lot, the custom modern home at 37 Monarch Bay Drive combines Zen-like calm, grand-scale entertaining, and awe-inspiring ocean views into a compelling lifestyle package. As part of the exclusive Monarch Bay gated community, the singlelevel home comes pre-loaded with access to amenities such as upscale dining, beach butler service, and the scenic Monarch Links Golf Course. Available on the market for the first time in years, the recently upgraded home with its four bedrooms and six baths presents a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to purchase a standout property in one of California’s most exclusive waterfront communities. “We refer to it as ‘Cal-Hawaii’ because of the relaxed beach environment and protected enclave of the Monarch Bay Community. What a magnificent place to begin a day or end a busy day. It really is a reward to live here,” says luxury real estate professional Michael Caruso, Executive Director of the Caruso Real Estate Group at Surterre Properties.

NATURAL BEAUTY MEETS SOPHISTICATED DESIGN

Entering through the tranquil gated front yard, 37 Monarch Bay Drive greets visitors with an air of comfort and beauty. Throughout the home, a bright color palette unfolds consisting of white walls and built-ins, polished stone floors, and carefully appointed contrasts such as the hand-carved wooden ceilings in the Dining Room. Walking into the generous Great Room where floor-to-ceiling French doors frame the deep blue ocean views all the way to Catalina Island, is like walking into a living, breathing painting. “The design of this home blends indoor and outdoor living. I suspect our new owner would have all French Doors and windows open to enjoy the fragrant ocean breezes and hear the waves breaking,“ said Michael Caruso,

who has lived on the California coast ever since marrying his wife and real estate partner Cristina 36 years ago. According to the seasoned real estate expert, 37 Monarch Bay Drive presents the current state of the art in California beachfront living. Originally built in 1992, remodeled in 2001 and refreshed this year, the home’s design is a contemporary Cal-Coastal theme that effortlessly switches gears from hosting grand get-togethers to enjoying private sanctuary. “The thoughtful floor plan has a Bedroom Wing and Entertainment Wing. The beautiful private courtyard and landscaping theme with varied textures provide a ‘Zen-like’ ambiance,” said Caruso, pointing out amenities such as spa baths in the Master bedrooms, woodpaneled walk-in closets, built-in flat-screen televisions, and an Entertainer’s Kitchen decked out with the latest appliances. Come sunset, the action is bound to move outdoors to enjoy the unique scenery. “The views are outstanding and draw you to the yard area. This is the deepest and largest yard on this coastal bluff, by far,” said the listing agent, while adding: “Home owners also have rights to the Monarch Bay Beach Club with dining, bar and beach butler service for chairs and umbrellas. It’s like being on vacation year round!” Rounding out the unique lifestyle offering, 37 Monarch Bay Drive is located in one of the country’s most sought-after ZIP-codes. “Dana Point has a beach town feel with one of the finest boat harbors anywhere, plus several highly regarded golf courses and multiple tennis clubs both public and private are nearby. The city boasts seven miles of coastline, plus numerous parks, excellent hiking and jogging trails, summer concerts and the best Fourth of July fireworks display anywhere,” said Michael Caruso. “Plus, Dana Point just might be the whale watching capital of the world, and the property literally provides front row seats to witness whale migration first-hand.” For a closer look at the property’s unique Cal-Hawaii lifestyle and to schedule a private tour, visit www.37MonarchBayDrive.com.

“37 Monarch Bay Drive and the surrounding community are for people with an appreciation of our wonderful Riviera Coast in south Orange County. The beaches are clean and sandy, the water is clear and beautiful. This is beach living at its best.” - Michael Caruso, Executive Director, The Caruso Real Estate Group at Surterre Properties

Room with a view: In the Living Room, floor-toceiling glass walls and French doors frame the deep blue ocean scenery like a living work of art.

ORANGE COUNTY’S LUXURY REAL ESTATE PROFESSIONALS WEIGH IN ON CURRENT MARKET TRENDS

resentation is key in today’s demanding luxury homes market. But then again, every home is unique in character and amenities, which also calls for a coherent marketing strategy to bring out the best features. For the inside scoop on the most important criteria, we asked local luxury real estate professionals Georgina Jacobson (Coldwell Banker Previews International), Summer Lynne Perry (Surterre Properties), and Suzi Dailey (HÔM Sotheby’s International) this issue’s question:

HOW DO YOU DETERMINE THE CORRECT MARKETING STRATEGY FOR A LUXURY HOME?

GEORGINA JACOBSON

A resident of Newport Beach for over 30 years and a licensed real estate agent for the past 20 years, Georgina Jacobson commands exceptional knowledge of the luxury homes market across Newport Beach, Newport Coast, Corona del Mar, Laguna Beach and Irvine. With a constant eye on current trends, she delivers real wins for buyers and sellers, including a recent $17 million sale on Harbor Island. “The correct way to market a property mainly depends on one factor: location. I start by looking at the neighborhood of the property to determine the right marketing plan. As an example, for a home in Big Canyon I would target people who have an appreciation of the community, starting with Big Canyon Country Club members as well as members of other golf course communities. The age and condition of the property also plays into the equation. For a teardown I target buyers looking to build their dream home, as well as builders and developers. New homes are marketed to owners/users. Speaking of new homes, these are in high demand by international buyers, so for a new custom home in Crystal Cove we would use the worldwide marketing reach of Coldwell Banker Previews International with offices across the globe. Ultimately, the internet is the biggest marketing tool today and every property, no matter the strategy, needs to have amazing photography, video, and aerial shots to convey a feeling of the place. We also make sure to include shots of the surrounding area and amenities, especially for non-local buyers, to present the home as part of a desirable luxury package.”

SUMMER LYNNE PERRY

A Southern California native from Hermosa Beach and a Balboa Peninsula resident, Summer Lynne Perry represents luxury home buyers and sellers as a Broker Associate with Surterre Properties. Drawing on extensive experience in design and homebuilding, Summer is an expert in home values, interior upgrades and the latest trends in coastal Orange County living. “There is really no simple answer to finding the appropriate marketing strategy, because every home offers a unique story. Especially here in Newport Beach, where we have tear-down homes selling for $5 million, sometimes you have to market “the dream” of what a home could become. My team and I are fortunate to have an awardwinning in-house studio in our office here at Surterre Properties and a hands-on Chief Marketing Officer, Paula Wilhelm, that we oftentimes brainstorm with for our clients marketing plans. We also work closely with our videographer, Newport Beach Media, to help capture the lifestyle of the buyer we are looking for through film. Finally, print media is still very much alive and meaningful to our clients and neighbors, so we reach out to our best resource Tim Kruger to help us capture breath-taking pictures that seem to always draw people into our listings ‘to see if what the Internet showed was real!’ It has taken a few years to find the BEST in our business, but we are finally aligned and our marketing proves it.”

SUZI DAILEY

As the founder of the premiere luxury coastal realty group DaileybytheSea, Suzi Dailey specializes in the California coastline from San Clemente, Monarch Beach, and Laguna Beach to Newport Coast and Newport Beach. Drawing on an extensive background in interior design and residential development, the welltraveled agent supports an international client base of buyers and sellers. “Here at DaileybytheSea, we follow a three step process. The first step for a high-value luxury property is to prepare and present the home as professionally and beautifully as possible. For example: Should the home be staged? Is the style up to date? Should furniture be changed for showings, or paint colors lightened? Is the home dark? Secondly, it is critical to build a strong ‘case’ for a home. A luxury home is competing against other homes on the market, so we need to emphasize the unique features and qualities. It is important to identify the home’s key advantages and explain what makes it stand out to potential buyers. In the final step, we proceed with the marketing to feature those points. We target a global clientele and try to convey the character of these magnificent estates through beautiful imagery. Our marketing strategies utilize video, property websites, social media, as well as traditional brochures and magazines to convey the message of the value proposition. As an aside, we have had tremendous success with hosting special events at showcase properties. These include benefits for Juvenile Diabetes, Big Brothers and recently a benefit for multiple sclerosis at a $10 million listing. This type of event creates fantastic exposure for our homeowners, while showcasing a homes’ entertaining capabilities.”

PRIME AGENT SPOTLIGHT A •

GLORIA JEWELL

t the age of 20, Gloria Jewell found her way into the real estate industry. Initially, she thought of selling real estate “only as a means to work my way through college,” she remembers. But then her work ethic kicked in. “I excelled in my craft very quickly and as such I was working seven days a week - no time to finish college,” said Gloria. “Now the dye was cast, I became immersed in my career and co-owned and operated a small boutique real estate company in Fullerton and then opened a Laguna Beach location after I moved here in the 1980s.” Ultimately, real estate turned out to be her dream job. “My business is like a weekly TV series. In each episode, I get to enter into a new relationship, get to know the clients very well, share in both their concerns and joys and ultimately advise them in the purchase or sale of their real estate,” said Gloria Jewell, adding: “It is truly an honor to serve them.” Now drawing on 35 years of experience in the industry, Gloria Jewell has made a name for herself in the luxury home and investment property market in Laguna Beach and surrounding communities. As a top-producing agent at Teles Properties, she boasts an impressive 98% closing rate on her escrows throughout the years. For this Agent Spotlight, Prime caught up with Gloria at the start of a busy summer season to learn about her unique approach to the luxury real estate market. Looking back at your beginnings, what attracted you to the luxury real estate market initially? Having been raised first in a tiny apartment in Long Beach, then in a very modest 1400-square-foot home in Fullerton, I was naturally overwhelmed when I first saw large homes or estates. Going to Los Angeles or back East and seeing the old, grand buildings with their magnificent architecture, led me to an interest in design and architecture. So I naturally gravitated toward luxury real estate as well as land, because I can see the potential of the space. I always had a vision, not necessarily of what is, but what it could become, which helps me in assisting buyers and sellers with their properties. Drawing on over 35 years of experience, what does it take to become a successful agent in this unique field? Perseverance and knowledge! When I began my career 1981, I learned that many of my residential clients also were interested in purchasing investment properties, such as apartments and commercial properties. So I quickly educated myself on investment properties and structuring 1031 tax-deferred exchanges. Being so young and working in an investment real estate market that was pretty much dominated by men, I knew I had to know more than the average commercial broker and work twice as hard to earn seller and buyer confidence. You still offer residential and investment properties. Which region do you specialize in? Laguna Beach and surrounding beach communities for residential properties. For my investment property sales, I have no boundaries. I have sold

54 | primeluxury.com

investment properties in many states other than California throughout the years. You work very closely with your clients, how would you describe your approach? It is a very close relationship that develops, as I care deeply about them and realize that I am advising them and what is to some people one of the largest investments they will make. I take it very seriously. When the escrow closes, I go through sort of a withdrawal - as most have become friends through the process and I miss talking to them everyday! From talking to your clients and personal experience, what are the biggest trends in luxury real estate right now? Open floor plans with voluminous ceilings and sophisticated but comfortable living spaces. Indoor spaces that open up with large pocket doors to allow the interior space to flow as one with the outdoor space. New quality construction or extensive remodeled “smart homes” are selling quickly. In Laguna Beach, oceanfront and magnificent view properties are naturally coveted. On that note, which trends are you noticing in Coastal Orange County in particular? Personally, I am seeing a trend towards smaller living spaces. In the 1990s and early 2000s, everyone seemed to want huge homes. The larger the square footage the better, even though it may have been a terrible design and superfluous square footage. That trend has shifted for high quality, excellent architecture and open, useable square footage with seamless transition to the outdoor space. That appears to be the trend in all in all price categories.

And finally, what is the #1 reason for moving to Coastal Orange County? Lifestyle, beauty, the arts, and philanthropy. In the past, Laguna Beach was a sleepy artist colony. When I first moved here 32 years ago, if you did not get to the few restaurants that were here by 9:00 PM, you did not eat out. Now, Laguna Beach has five-star dining, great music venues, an actual night life that finally evolved here. In addition, Laguna Beach is still a small community of caring individuals. Residents here are very active in the

preservation of wildlife and the environment. It’s a very diverse community that serves a variety of interests.

LOCAL KNOWEDGE

THE ISLANDS OF NEWPORT BEACH

Sometimes it’s easy to forget that Newport Beach has seven - that’s right, seven! - islands that dot its scenic harbor. Some are best seen from the water; others are perfect for strolling. All have interesting histories and all offer a unique way to enjoy “island living” right in the heart of Southern California. Read on to learn more about Newport’s islands…we’ve even given you a bit of history on a little-discussed eighth island!

Balboa Island

Harbor Island

Balboa Island’s charm is world-famous. Comprised of three islands (Balboa, Little Balboa and Collins), Balboa Island celebrates its 100th anniversary this year. Balboa Island’s first lots sold for as little as $25, but - even at that price - the island’s population grew slowly, as there was no gas or electricity in those first years. Today’s Balboa Island homes range from impressive Bayfront mansions to quaint cottages. And, of course, the timeless appeal of the island continues, as residents and visitors alike are drawn to quaint Marine Avenue’s shops and restaurants, a scenic waterfront walk around both islands, and some of the best views of the Christmas Boat Parade.

The most exclusive private island in Newport Beach, Harbor Island is home to some of the region’s most noteworthy captains of industry, including George Argyros and Donald Bren. Developed in the 1920s, Harbor Island lots first sold for as little as $2,500. Now, this enclave of waterfront estates with private docks and beaches is more reminiscent of the Hamptons, with Hamptons pricing to boot.

Bay Island Nestled against the Balboa Peninsula, Bay Island is the only natural island in Newport - and the only one that doesn’t allow cars. Instead, residents and visitors to Bay Island, this ultra-private paradise of 23 homes, over a small bridge that accommodates golf carts. Bay Island was first established as a duck hunting and poker club in 1904. Today, Bay Island is one of the most exclusive addresses in Newport Beach, and - in addition to spectacular homes - features a botanical garden, courtyard garden, tennis court, and several private beaches.

Collins Island Collins Island is typically considered part of Balboa Island, and got its name from real estate investor Williams S. Collins, who - seeing the recreation potential of the area -purchased the land from James McFadden in 1902. Legend has it that actor James Cagney won the island in a poker game in 1938. The Coast Guard used the island during WWII and Cagney sold it in 1948. Today, gated Collins Island is host to a handful of waterfront homes.

Words by Chris Brigandi, Founder of Arbor Real Estate 58 | primeluxury.com

Lido Isle Incorporated as part of Newport Beach in 1906, Lido Isle is a man-made island with approximately 800 homes. Lido Isle was one of the first master-planned communities in California and was designed to resemble a Mediterranean resort. In fact, Lido’s name pays homage to Lido di Venezia near Venice and its street names also reflect the Mediterranean theme. In addition to providing a breathtaking seaside setting for homes, Lido also offers its own tennis courts, yacht club and clubhouse with snack bar and bay beach.

Linda Isle Linda Isle is an exclusive, guard-gated community of 108 homes - all featuring waterfront lots with private docks, making it an ideal enclave for anyone who loves boating. The last of the “islands” to be incorporated into Newport Beach (in 1954), Linda Isle appeals to both full-time and seasonal residents with its central location, as well as its private beach and clubhouse. Many homes on Linda Isle offer incredible views of Newport Harbor’s Main Channel.

Newport Island Located off Balboa Boulevard and 38th Street in West Newport Beach, Newport Island features 109 homes, many with Bayfront locations and docks. But, perhaps best of all, Newport Island is a short walk to the region’s best beaches and surf breaks. I’d have to say that Newport Island is one of Newport Beach’s hidden gems.
