Paula Aragone, CEO and president at Aragone & Associates at First Team/Christie’s Luxury Portfolio, discovered a love of contracts and negotiations during law school in Argentina. Later, she found the combination of legal contracts—and her inherent talent for interior design and remodeling—fueled her passion for real estate. “I decided to pursue a full-time career using my passion and talents for the benefit of my clientele,” she says.
Now, with almost 20 years serving the real estate community in Southern California (and more than 600 closed transactions), Aragone consistently ranks in the top 1 percent of real estate agents in the area year after year. She says that the best part of her job is having a positive impact on people’s lives. “I love having the ability to convert my client’s real estate ambitions, goals and dreams into reality and help with their legacy, as well as the satisfaction of assisting people during difficult times,” Aragone says.
A large part of Aragone’s business is referral-based, which stands as a testament to her market knowledge, attention to detail, and strong analytical and negotiation skills. “Each of our clients has expressed their appreciation for a higher level of service and a truly extraordinary experience working with us,” she says. “With our connection to our business partner, First Team Real Estate, we will continue to provide an unmatched level of worldwide exposure with our alliance to the biggest brands in luxury real estate.”
She credits her success to building strong relationships with her clients—learning their needs and how to best service them. “It has always been our role at Aragone & Associates to listen, to hear and to understand the uniqueness of each situation and deliver the perfect solution(s) for their situation,” Aragone says. “Simply put, we care; we listen; we devise a plan; and we deliver extraordinary results.”
