For nearly two decades, Celeste Gilles has helped to set standards for client service, and results, in coastal Orange County’s luxury real estate market.  Today, she continues her tradition of forging long-lasting relationships with - and ensuring successful transactions for – her valued clients at Villa Real Estate.  Although she works throughout the region, Celeste has particular expertise in representing clients in North Laguna Beach,CA as well as within the Dover Shores/Westcliff enclaves of Newport Beach,CA.

Celeste began her accomplished real estate career in 1996 at Coast Newport Properties, where she worked with industry icon Evan Corkett. In 2001, she and Corkett left to work at another history-making brokerage, Strada Properties. Their fruitful partnership continued for seven years, providing Celeste with an expert background in all aspects of luxury real estate – skills she leverages today on behalf of her valued clients.

In addition to her exceptional real estate sales and marketing acumen, Celeste possesses incomparable market knowledge as a Newport Beach native and as a longtime North Laguna Beach resident.

Beyond her thriving real estate career, Celeste is very involved in her community, volunteering at her children’s school and attending their sporting events. She also enjoys spending time with her husband and two boys at the beach, and hiking trails in and around Laguna Beach every day. She is a graduate of Newport Harbor High School and the University of Southern California.
