A chance encounter at the Laguna Beach Historical Society led to Chas. Aufhammer opening and closing an escrow in two days on a five-unit apartment property owned by one family for more than 40 years in the Woods Cove area of Laguna Beach. Well-maintained, in original condition, and close to the beach, the property has seven single-car garages. Some tenants have lived in the complex for 15 to 22 years.

With more more than 40,000 agents in 1,200 offices throughout 47 states, we’d say the quest to be among the elite top-producing agents in the Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices network is formidable.

In 2015, 29 of our agents made the top 100 list. These agents have helped position us as a leading brokerage in Southern California, as well as assisted in our goal to exceed 2014’s sales in 2015.
