Sometimes a career is a calling, and a profession is a passion. Andrea Ballesteros may understand this better than anyone, as a second generation real estate professional and native of Orange County, whose love for luxury real estate, her community and her clients runs deep. Over 18 years ago Andrea began her career representing clients within the most sought-after communities along the Orange County coast. Living in Laguna Beach allows Andrea to play an active role in the community and share firsthand the coastal lifestyle to buyers around the world.
Today, Andrea and husband J.J. Ballesteros are principals of the Ballesteros Group - known as one of the region’s foremost real estate experts. J.J.’s background of running nationally ranked teams for Wells Fargo Home Mortgage brings a wealth of experience to the team. The group’s unique blend of local knowledge, financial markets expertise, and global insight is a winning combination. “Individual strategies are incorporated that best suit the characteristics of the client’s needs. We are actively seeking out the right investments for our buyers and locating target buyers for our clients’ listings,” says Ballesteros. “Our team then balances this practice by tracking macro developments in the real estate markets nationally and internationally, as the Laguna Beach and Dana Point markets draw buyers from across the country and the world.”
The team’s tenacious and personalized methods consistently keep them ahead of the competition. “I learned early on that, just as you have a financial adviser, you need a professional real estate adviser who is focused on the long-term relationship and building of your real estate portfolio,” Ballesteros says. “We realize that serving our clients, helping them to achieve their goals and putting our relationship with them first is what epitomizes our success! That’s how our clients become clients for life.”
