The OC Register’s annual Best of OC poll gives locals the opportunity to praise and recognize the top restaurants, services, and experiences Orange County has to offer. According to the 2020 results, for the 11th consecutive year, First Team Real Estate has been recognized by thousands of voters as the “Best Real Estate Company”, for outstanding agent customer service and proven market results.
“As the number one Independent Brokerage in Southern California1, we pride ourselves on being big enough to have the resources, and small enough to care,” explains Cameron Merage, First Team Real Estate founder and CEO. “It is a testament to the hard work of each and every one of our sales associates, managers, and support staff that the residents of Orange County recognize our commitment to serving every buyer and seller with the absolute highest quality of service. We’re humbled to have the trust of so many local families, and will continue to put forth the dedication and hard work that has earned us this honor.”
Thriving on innovation and creative problem-solving since its founding in 1976, First Team Real Estate remains ahead of the competition helping more buyers and sellers achieve their real estate goals throughout the first three months of quarantine than any other brokerage2. August 2020 also set the record for the highest closed units and sales volume in 15 years3 for the brokerage with a total closed sale volume of $735,422,878 and 1,019 units sold. Adapting to the changing market amid COVID-19, First Team and its agents continue to set the standard for quality property marketing, including 3D tours, virtual staging, and more, with superior tools to help buyers and sellers succeed in any market.
“The sharing culture among our 2,000+ real estate professionals helps us match active house hunters with their dream home and ensure a swift transaction for our expansive client base,” states Merage. “We started our business in Orange County and it’s an honor to continue helping local homeowners reach their real estate and financial goals with our tech-forward, consumer-focused business model that has become our signature.”
