In today’s hyper-competitive world of ultra-luxurious high-profile residential real estate, one name stands apart from the rest — John McMonigle.
Renowned across the nation and throughout the world for his unparalleled expertise and success, John, along with his celebrated team at Newport Beach-based McMonigle Group, have made history by selling properties totaling more than $7 billion over more than 15 years. John is often called upon by the media as the foremost expert in residential real estate and has appeared on The Oprah Winfrey Show, Access Hollywood, The Insider, HGTV and other major networks, as well as countless print interviews in some of the country’s most respected publications. From 2004 through 2008, The Wall Street Journal named The McMonigle Team the number-one real estate team in the world. Today John shines as a cast member on Bravo TV’s hit series “Real Estate Wars.”
In addition to his profound sales achievements and co-founding of Strada Properties (which he sold to Coldwell Banker in 2003), John is known for his trend-setting marketing strategies, which have set new standards for real estate advertising and sales around the world. He is also recognized as an expert in real estate development, with the nation’s top builders and developers utilizing his expertise, keen business instincts and innate ability to understand and outperform the market to sell their properties.
John invests more in marketing his listings than any other agent—over $1.8 million annually—featuring them on his websites, his own M Magazine, and quarterly advertising supplements in Riviera Magazine, Angeleno and other high-profile publications both locally and nationally.
Genuinely committed to giving back to the community, John is a proud supporter of the Toys for Tots Foundation, CHOC Children’s Hospital and Second Harvest Food Bank of Orange County.
It was a humorously perilous business for both of us. For, before we proceed further, it must be said that the monkey-rope was fast at both ends; fast to Queequeg's broad canvas belt, and fast to my narrow leather one. So that for better or for worse, we two, for the time, were wedded; and should poor Queequeg sink to rise no more.
