Villa Real Estate has announced that John Stanaland has joined the Newport Beach-based luxury residential real estate brokerage firm. Stanaland, whose real estate sales total several billions of dollars, will be based in Villa’s Laguna Beach office.

According to Stanaland, he joined Villa due to the tools, technology, culture and marketing support that the firm offers.

A Laguna Beach native, Stanaland is the fifth generation of real estate professionals in his family, which has included agents, developers, attorneys and financiers. His family history in Orange County dates to 1919, when his great-great-grandfather helped people buy and sell real estate. At the time, the county’s population was less than 60,000 and Laguna Beach and Newport Beach had yet to be incorporated.

“We’re proud to have John join Villa Real Estate,” said President Steve High. “He is one of the most successful agents in coastal Orange County, and his deep knowledge, vision and market insight will fit well with Villa’s team of luxury real estate professionals.”

Stanaland attributes his success to providing professional service, the relationships he’s built and a loyal clientele that appreciates his attentiveness, knowledge, negotiation and marketing skills, and an easy-going nature that makes even the most complex transactions more enjoyable.
