Jim Ardery
President-Elect of the Board, Laguna Beach Properties

I started my real estate career here in Laguna Beach in 1978 and have been a member of the Laguna Board of REALTORS for forty years. It is hard to believe it, but I still love my job and love Laguna Beach. I first started as a young agent with William Powell Real Estate a small but well respected office. With luck and hard work I opened my own office four years later, Pageant Real Estate. I had about twelve agents and grew to buy The Chateau Company and merged the two offices. I sold that company and decided to make my life easy and work for another larger company.

Two years ago I merged back into Laguna Beach Properties with my partner Gary Hawley of which I had been the Broker for ten years, thinking I was going to scale down. That didn't happen and now I am happy to say I am busier than ever. Now it's payback time, I want to give back and help the real estate community that has helped me be successful all these years. I would like to use my forty years of Laguna real estate experience to better our Laguna Board of REALTORS. Please consider me to serve as your director for this coming term.
