    Business Philosophy

    No, not Brian Jones from the Rolling Stones, but Brian Jones the Realtor (although being a rock legend wouldn't be too bad).

    Time flies when you are having fun. Before I knew it I had spent nearly 20 years building my own company and although my first career in the business world was fulfilling, I found my second career in real estate to be more rewarding. It gives me great pride to have earned the trust of my clients and to be able to help them through the emotional process of buying or selling a home.

    I am active in community projects and events in Laguna Beach and consider myself to be extremely fortunate to live and raise a family here. I have been involved in many community events that donate to local charities. I am also involved in efforts to protect our local wilderness areas.

    My goal is to ensure that every client of mine has the most satisfying experience when buying or selling a home. It will be my honor to be a part of that experience in your life.

    Personal Background

    Brian Jones was the owner of Spectrum Business Centers an office equipment and service company for 18 years. With the advent of big box stores like Staples, he made the decision to move into the mortgage business. Working as a loan officer at Citibank and Bank of America he was able to learn the ins and outs of lending. With this experience the move to real estate was an easy transition. Starting with ZipRealty, then First Team Estates and now Coldwell Banker, Brian has a tremendous understanding of the real estate process.

    Please contact Brian if you have any questions or requests. Regardless of when you choose to sell your home, its wise to work with a real estate professional. In addition to marketing your home, he can be your negotiator, arrange home staging and other property enhancements, and guide you through the complicated home selling and buying process.

    Brian was involved in selling my deceased aunt's home. I live in another state but was designated as Trustee for her estate. Brian made the process simple and easy without ever having a face-to-face meeting. I would highly recommend Brian to anyone looking to sell their real estate.

    Brian gave Brian 5 stars out of 5
    The first buyer that saw the property put in an offer. Our house went under contract 1 day after we put it on the market and at less than 1% under asking price. Brian walked us through every step of the closing process. It couldn't have been a more pleasant experience. Brian's hard work and knowledge of what it takes to sell a home really paid off. He's a true professional and a genuinely nice guy. We were dealing with a family trust and Brian kept everyone informed and updated with the status of the transaction. Our goal was to sell the home quickly at the best price and that is exactly what happened.

    My experience with Brian was top rated! I felt like I had family looking out for me, leading me through the process. Buying a home in Laguna Woods required way more than just an agent. The process was tedious and redundant, Brian never showed any frustration or irritation. He was completely patient and went above and beyond the responsibilities of an agent. He was always available, I felt like I was his only client!
