Villa Real Estate is proud to announce that John Stanaland has joined the Newport Beach-based luxury residential real estate brokerage firm. Stanaland, whose real estate sales total several billions of dollars, will be based in Villa’s Laguna Beach office.

“I’m excited to join Villa Real Estate,” said Stanaland. “After months of research, and considering the top brokerages in the area including Compass, Coldwell Banker, and First Team/Christie’s, there was absolutely no question that Villa was the right fit due to the tools, technology, culture and marketing support that the firm offers. Villa was the best choice for continuing to effectively serve my clients at the highest level.”

A Laguna Beach native, John is the fifth generation of real estate professionals in his family, which has included agents, developers, attorneys, and financiers. His family history in Orange County dates to 1919, when John’s great-great-grandfather helped people buy and sell real estate. At the time, the county’s population was less than 60,000 and Laguna Beach and Newport Beach had yet to be incorporated.

“We’re proud to have John join Villa Real Estate,” said President Steve High. “He is one of the most successful agents in coastal Orange County, and his deep knowledge, vision and market insight will fit well with Villa’s team of luxury real estate professionals.”
