Yes, we’re talking outside of Orange County, and that’s a big deal.

Leading RE encompasses 550 of the foremost local and regional brands in residential real estate with 4,600 offices and 140,000 sales associates in the U.S. and 30 other countries.

So what does this mean for those who are looking to relocate to Orange County? Or even find a vacation home on the beach for their family? It means that Seven Gables is ready to assist you moving in and out of Orange County with the knowledge and experience necessary to help you make the move, no matter where you’re going or coming from.

A few years back, Seven Gables agent Kim Harvey was introduced to a new client from Colorado who was looking for a two-week vacation rental in Newport Beach. Although Kim wasn’t able to find her client the perfect two-week vacation rental because VRBO had a broader array of offerings, when her client came out to Newport, they met up to see a house on Oceanfront on the Newport Peninsula. They walked out of the front door and her client was ready to buy it.

This five million dollar oceanfront home would make for the most perfect vacation home.

They closed on the deal and her client was able to enjoy the home for two years until she decided it was time for a change and asked Kim to relist their vacation home for 5.6 million.

“I called every realtor I knew on the coastline before we put the home back on the market,” said Kim.

The first realtor who showed the home (and remember, this is before the home was even listed on the market) had a client who made a full cash offer and 60 days later, they closed.

What started as a simple client looking for a two-week vacation rental, turned out to be a client who was able to make $700,000 with her two-year investment without ever hitting the market. Now that’s a good story.
