Top Luxury Real Estate Industry Leaders

When Paula Aragone and her family moved from Argentina to Southern California in 2002, she soon launched a new career path in real estate. With a background in law, she was drawn to the opportunity to tap into her passion for contracts, negotiations and design. From that moment on, she forged a plan to become one of Orange County’s top real estate industry leaders. It was her desire to deliver a much higher level of personalized experience to buyers and sellers, along with a dedication to unique marketing strategies and attention to detail, that made Aragone stand out from the pack.

As CEO of Aragone & Associates at First Team Christie’s, and with more than 20 years serving Southern California’s real estate community, Aragone consistently ranks in the top 1 percent of real estate agents year after year. In a constantly evolving industry, Aragone prides herself in being at the forefront of customer service and innovation. She and her team renovate, remodel and furnish properties for their clients to help them sell for the highest possible prices.

Her team of dynamic real estate specialists includes Dawna Kuch, a senior associate with over 17 years of experience who is also a residential, luxury and trust specialist. Kuch has built a reputation for her dedication to her customers and her proven ability to negotiate for her buyers and sellers. Tom Aragone recently joined the team, heading up the Newport Beach Investment and Residential division. Immersed in real estate from a young age, he’s a graduate of Chapman University’s Argyros School of Business & Economics with a double major in finance and economics. For the last five years, he’s advised clients on the disposition and acquisition of investment properties nationwide. Aragone & Associates also boasts a trust and probate division.

“We are dedicated to building strong relationships with our clients and execute the right strategies to best service them,” Aragone says. “That’s why our company continues to grow and expand with a proven track record of success.”
