Casey Lesher got into real estate in 2007 and has been helping people find their coastal dream homes in Orange County ever since. He has a passion for real estate and strives to help everyone find the perfect pad. Knowing that everything from location to the finishing in a home is important—and unique—to each buyer, he helps his clients score everything they are looking for in a luxury home. Here are his expert tips for finding the coastal home of your dreams.
1 | Home Is Where the Heart Is Casey Lesher
One thing has always remained the same in the search for real estate anywhere—LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION! Even in Coastal Orange County where some of the best properties in the country are, there are still pockets that are much better than others.
2 | Ditch the Car
Walkability to the hot spots is everything! Prime real estate is always surrounded by the most coveted dining spots, popular shopping centers and entertainment hubs.
3 | The Best of Both Worlds Casey Lesher
Look for wood floors throughout, cool fixtures and finishes–the latest trends are everything to buyers these days! With that being said, it’s best to find a property with aesthetics that are both trendy and timeless.
4 | House Hunter
Hire a professional! An agent who has sold many homes and loves what they do will put you in a win-win situation and likely a situation with immediate equity.
Trust me, you need more than the Zillow app. I’ve seen buyers cost themselves hundreds of thousands of dollars by not having proper representation. I often clean these messes up!
Like a Champ: For Lesher, real estate is in his blood. “Nothing is more exhilarating to me than winning a deal with huge value points and opportunity,” he says.
Dream Big: His ideal dream home would include a 12-car garage, walls of glass with unique views or a classic colonial. “I love architecturally significant properties like a John Woolf or a Donald Wexler, to name just a couple,” he explains.
Wish List: Lesher has had his eye on eight classic homes in the Newport Beach area that he has known for a long time that he lusts over. “One day, one day!” he exclaims.
The Go-To Realtor: There are no other careers for Lesher, even when asked if there were any other careers he might have instead—it’s always been real estate. “I am made for real estate,” he stated.
