SUNSET BEACH, CA – Chuck Buscemi’s laid back attitude matches the easygoing beachside communities of Surfside, Sunset Beach, and Huntington Harbour that he has dutifully served for the last 34 years. A legacy in coastal Orange County and consistently ranked among the top 1% of all First Team Real Estate agents, Chuck and his team Buscemi, Noonan & Associate Realtors, successfully closed a total of $16,109,000 in just four months by representing the sellers of three side-by-side beachfront estates: 16671, 16665, and 16661 S Pacific Avenue in Sunset Beach, as well as the buyers of 17011 Bolero Lane in Huntington Harbour.
All three of the side-by-side beachfront properties have been sold by Buscemi, Noonan & Associate Realtors previously, two of which being the third consecutive sale for the team. Fun-loving, passionate, and equipped with an infectious sense of humor, it’s no surprise that Chuck and his team have carved out such a dedicated and discerning client base within the local area.
Operating a family-owned boutique real estate office along PCH in Sunset Beach, they exclusively offer homeowners the global marketing benefits of First Team / Christie’s International Real Estate in the area, which ensures their clients receive the highest quality service available in the marketplace. One thing is for sure, they certainly live up to their team motto, “We Make Your Waterfront Dreams Come True!”
“I think our clients love working with us time and again because we are very low key and just like to have fun. Our love of these beach communities and the casual lifestyle is how we connect to our buyer base. We all truly enjoy what we do, in fact, buying and fixing up properties began as just a hobby before I decided to start my own real estate business” explains Chuck Buscemi. “I believe we have so much success in the local market because we spend more on advertising than most local agents. We don’t just run ads in the newspapers and local magazines, but we’re also online, on social media, we send mailers out to thousands of homeowners in the area, and we distribute thousands of annual calendars to our marketing area and local businesses every year. The combination of a strong print and online marketing strategy is crucial to our clients’ success.”
16671 S Pacific Avenue closed for $2,975,000 in July, a beautifully upgraded and maintained 3-bedroom, 3-bathroom charming cottage with a Casita above the 3-car garage. In July, the team also represented the buyer of 17011 Bolero Lane in Huntington Harbour which sold for $4,500,000, expertly completing the sale off-market with fellow First Team agent Vikki Morrison.
Next for the team was 16665 S Pacific Avenue, which closed for $5,197,000 in late September. Designed by architect Mark Wheeler, Chuck coordinated the custom rebuild of the property in 2015 for his longtime clients, with no expenses spared on the state-of-the-art design and materials. Completing the team’s impressive set of neighboring sales is 16661 S Pacific Ave, closing for $3,425,000 in early November. The upgraded and maintained 3-bedroom, 2-bathroom beach house includes a separate unit with private entry over the 3-car garage offering another 2 bedrooms, 2 baths, and more ocean views.
“Usually at any given time our team has roughly 10-12 active listings on the market, but we’ve officially sold them all!” Chuck adds with a wry smile. Tight housing inventory is in fact a common hurdle in our Southern California real estate market today, with bidding wars becoming commonplace as a record number of buyers continue to enter the market to capitalize on low-interest rates and compete over limited homes for sale. This seller’s market created by low supply and high demand presents a great opportunity for homeowners to sell for top dollar, quickly despite the ongoing pandemic.
“We have been giving this advice to our clients for a while now if you’re planning to sell your home, do it in the short-term. We’ve been through several market downturns and it’s impossible to know what will happen next, but right now it’s a great time to capture top-dollar,” explains Chuck, who holds the record for the highest-priced sale of a beachfront home in Surfside and Sunset Beach. “I am hopeful for house hunters however that the new tax laws put in place by Proposition 19 will help open up more inventory, allowing homeowners to take advantage of extended tax benefits to finally move on to new opportunities.”
When asked why he’s spent the entirety of his impressive career at First Team, Chuck emphasizes the quality training, marketing, and family-owned values of honesty and care. Steadfast in their commitment to ethical representation and devoted to their lifelong clients, Buscemi, Noonan & Associate Realtors are sure to continue their peaceful domination of these beloved Southern California beachfront communities.
