Posted by Amy Plotkin — July 31, 2012
Having called Laguna Beach home for more than two decades, Bernadette possesses a long-standing passion for the area and all it has to offer. Throughout each of her endeavors as a trusted real estate professional, that passion is pervasive — clients depend on her not only for her time-sculpted knowledge when it comes to the local marketplace, but for her ability to intuit their most important needs and develop strategic plans for bringing them to fruition.
Having conceived, created and operated her own children’s clothing boutique, Lucy Max Children’s Boutique — an undertaking that included designing and manufacturing a line of clothing that was distributed to wholesale accounts — she brings to the table a noted proficiency with regard to “big picture” thinking. If the success she’s helped so many clients achieve is any indication, this quality represents one of the most important a real estate agent can possess.
“I love my career as a real estate professional because it fuses my passion for the area with my strengths,” she remarked. “It’s incredibly rewarding to help buyers and sellers persevere to turn their biggest and most important dreams into reality — and my previous career operating my own business gave me invaluable knowledge when it comes to setting long-term goals and achieving them.”
Having partnered with Southern California’s leading luxury real estate firm, Surterre Properties, Bernadette complements her diverse set of talents and skills with an unparalleled level of support — support that’s tailored to suit the highly specialized needs of Orange County’s luxury coastal marketplace. In addition to an award-winning in-house adverting studio, Surterre boasts a network comprised of the area’s most accomplished agents and brokers as well as the industry’s latest technological advances. These and so many other resources and amenities enable Bernadette to focus her efforts on perfecting the level of service that she offers.
“I’m thrilled to be part of Surterre — this is the best real estate organization in Southern California!” she exclaimed. “I’m more than confident I can expose my clients to more opportunity here than I could anywhere else.”
A member of the California Association of REALTORS®, Bernadette’s an ongoing supporter of countless local charities in addition to Acres of Love in South Africa.
