About Claire



Over the past 18 years, Claire has represented residential real estate clients throughout coastal Orange County, where she has been involved in more than $150 million in closed transactions. A proven buyer’s and seller’s agent, she has built a solid reputation among past satisfied clients for her exceptional advisory services, her strong contractual negotiation skills, as well as her extensive knowledge of the Newport-Mesa real estate market.

After graduating from UC Santa Barbara, Claire began her career in real estate by working for the largest vacation home property-management company in Newport Beach. As the marketing director for the company, she was instrumental in developing their initial online marketing media platforms. In addition, she managed the luxury vacation home leasing department and maintained numerous vacation rental accounts, allowing her to become deeply familiar with many of the homes located throughout the Balboa-Newport area. In 2003, Claire launched into sales and joined a residential real estate firm in Corona del Mar. She mentored under a seasoned top-ranking agent and became part of an award-winning sales team specializing in Corona del Mar and Newport Beach waterfront homes.

In addition to Newport Beach & Corona del Mar, Claire’s specific area of expertise is primarily in the Newport-Mesa area where she resides, with an emphasis on her favorite neighborhoods including Newport Heights, Upper Newport Bay, Eastside and Westside Costa Mesa, and Central Costa Mesa. Further inland, Claire is deeply familiar with and has represented buyers and sellers in Old Towne Orange, Orange Hills, and North Tustin.

Client Testimonials
★★★★★
"Working with Claire to find a temporary home while our home was being rebuilt, could not have been a more pleasant experience. As we insisted on exploring several areas before settling in Newport Coast, Claire showed a great deal of patience and made herself available to our timetable and schedule. Most importantly, she took the time to understand our needs and what was important. We could not have been more pleased with our decision and have recommended her to others. She is professional, knowledgeable and very thorough." - Fred Slocum & Lynn Johnson.

★★★★★
"Claire has been wonderful! Super knowledgable of the homes (and sometimes the history of the home)! She is very well connected with the local community,politics and schools in the area. She knows what is going on especially in Eastside Costa Mesa and Dover Shores area. She showed me different parts of the neighborhoods provided comps, and rental estimates for investment property choices. She helped me make sense of what areas would retain my investment choices and why. Above all she listens to what your needs are and focuses around what properties would be a perfect match. She made time for me at a moments notice when a property fit my criteria. I would not hesitate to recommend her as she is a professional in her field and would definitely work with her again." - Debbie M.
