As an agent who's an expert in this local area, I bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise about buying and selling real estate here. It's not the same everywhere, so you need someone you can trust for up-to-date information. I am eager to serve you. Here are some of the things I can do for you:
Find Your Next Home
You need someone who knows this area inside and out! I can work with you to find the right home at the right price for you, including all the neighborhood amenities that matter - not to mention the essential criteria you have for your ideal home
Sell a Home
When it's time to move, you need someone who will advertise your home, show to prospective buyers, negotiate the purchase contract, arrange financing, oversee the inspections, handle all necessary paperwork and supervise the closing. I can take care of everything you need, from start to close.
Consult on Home Selling Tactics
Oftentimes buyers don't visualize living in your home the way you do. I can make your home attractive to its ideal audience - which can help you get top dollar. Things like staging the home, making repairs or minor improvements, or even simply painting the walls can be the difference between a home resting on the market and one that's sold fast.

"Excellent agent. Adam had our home sold before it ever hit the MLS. He never cut us short, would always listen and responded to every question asked in a professional manner. I highly recommend Adam if you are selling your home."
-James Covey, Client
"I could write a book about everything Adam Alcaraz did for us to sell our Laguna Niguel townhouse. After we decided to sell it, we literally did not even visit the property....he took care of EVERYTHING. He dealt with our (difficult) renters, he took care of repairs, he had new flooring put in, found and coordinate with painters, made sure plants were watered, set up all the inspections, and on and on--and he was pleasant and positive throughout the whole process. Before all this, I had NO idea that a real estate agent could take care of so many things. I don't know if it's common for an agent to do so much, but, as far as I'm concerned, Adam is a saint. I simply can't imagine having a more positive experience with a realtor. If I were grading him, he'd get an A with infinity pluses. Thank you, Adam!"
-Annie Moose, Client
"Adam helped us sell our Townhouse in Laguna Nigel. We got the price we wanted. Adam helped at every stage of the process: helping the current tenants to leave, taking care of spot contractors for updates/repairs/inspections, negotiating with the HOA to take care of some structural issues, and working with the buyer's agent. If you want a full-service, thorough, professional agent, Adam is your man."
-Peter Dingus, Client
"I have signed, and am really happy that the buyers are so enthusiastic about the place. I can't tell you how grateful we are for ALL you have done. You have been fantastic, and have gone so far above and beyond what I would ever have expected from a realtor. From the bottom of my heart....THANK YOU!!! Peter D. & Anne M."
-Peter Dingus, Client
"Adam is the best agent we've ever worked with. He helped us sell our home quickly and was able to get it sold for 20k more than anyone else thought we could. He always has a positive attitude and a sunny outlook, but he's also realistic and down-to-earth. We still reach out to him from time to time to discuss the real estate market and he's always helpful and informative. Thank you Adam!"
-Luke Kinne, Client
"We cannot give enough accolades to Adam Alcaraz. We had several unforeseen and very unusual circumstances to overcome in our real estate transaction. This young man was our constant guide – walking along side us and leading from a position of strength. His demeanor was always calm, quiet and positive. At times, we were even able to enjoy some ‘inside’ humor. We felt there wasn’t anything he would give-in to that would not support us in every way. We encountered many different personalities in our time together and Adam was able to work professionally with each of them. We found him to be a man of incredible integrity and character. Also, very honest. These attributes meant, and stood for, a lot to us and they were displayed over and over in our time together. Not only as a real estate professional, but as a wonderful and caring father, son and grandson. If you are looking for an outstanding real estate agent to represent you, we would not hesitate to recommend Adam."
-Nancy & Ron DeBrincat, Client
"As a first time buyer with a very specific idea of what I didn't like but not an exact specification to what I did want, Adam was able to show me homes that fit exactly my needs just from the ideas that I had conveyed to him. With each property tour he was helpful and gave me all the time I needed to look around at the property. He was very helpful when my picky tastes and conflicting specifications made the search very difficult. In terms of submitting offers, if I was ready to submit an offer he could do it same day or even right there at the property from his iPad, I had great confidence that he would follow through on the property I wanted. When I finally found the perfect property, it was a difficult time in that complex where units were getting snapped up by all cash buyers within a day of being on the market. He talked to the listing agent and explained my situation, my ability and intent to buy and sold me as a buyer to that agent. "
-Oliver Ghalebi, Client
"Thanks so much for a wonderful real estate experience. From finding our Newport peninsula duplex to a swift and successful closing of escrow, you were great! We appreciated the fact that you made things very easy with online document signing, that you were always available, always pleasant, and always in problem-solving mode. You even waited for the appliance repair man! We would wholeheartedly recommend you to anyone looking for superior service with a personal touch. "
-Linda & Kim S., Client
"My husband and I have used the services of the OC Collective for our past two home purchases as well as the sale of one home. The OC collective maximized our valuable time by ensuring that we were shown high potential properties, assisted us with staging our home in addition to integration of technology to track our progress throughout the process. They leveraged resources to anticipate and answer our questions in a timely fashion to minimize the feeling of being overwhelmed. I even was able to sign most of the paperwork electronically on my cell phone while I was out of town traveling on business! If you are looking for a knowledgeable, professional, flexible and enjoyable team, the OC collective will efficiently navigate you through understanding the real estate market, purchase, selling, escrow and moving processes! My husband and I think highly of the OC collective and have recommended them to our friends and co-workers."
-Kelita H.G., Client
" I've had the opportunity to work with Adam more than once and I couldn't recommend him more highly. Whether you are a seasoned investor or a first time home buyer, he will be able to exceed your expectations. He knows more about Orange County than Google! One advantage of working with him, over other Realtors is that he has a long standing proven track record of success that truly ensures your offers are seen. Also, he has a very expansive network which means you get access to the best mortgage brokers, contractors, stagers, etc. I have been part of about 7 real Estate transactions and I can attest that Adam is the best! Carly D."
-Carly Demello, Client
"Thank you does not seem like enough. We had listed our home for sale three times since 2006, prior to hiring you and your team. We were so impressed with your professionalism, insight, and market knowledge, as well as your commitment to selling our home of 11 years. The fact that our home sold after only three days on the market says it all. The stager and photography were first-class and definitely gave our home the advantage it needed to stand out from the three other models on the market in our neighborhood. Trust me, we have seen what some of other listings look like and your presentation of our home was by far the best. You definitely went above and beyond in all aspects of our sale, from start to finish and for that we are grateful. You were always available to answer our questions no matter how big or small, you made us feel like we were your #1 priority and to top it off you handled our lease in Esencia, top-notch service all around, Thank You!"
-Nick K., Client
"Dearest Adam... thank you for the lovely, encouraging words. I can't imagine having gone through the past few months without you. From the beginning of the process trying to save our home to the actual move you never gave up on us...and believe me when I say that I realize I tried your patience and probably every other virtue you possess. You are an amazing man and I can't see anything but wonderful for you in 2016 and forever. You are in my prayers and thank you doesn't nearly express our gratitude for you. Ok I'm winding down now...ha ha! God Bless You!!!"
-Steve & Irene, Client
"If you are looking for a stress free sale of your property, look no further then Adam Alcaraz of Coldwell Banker. We recently sold our rental property in record time with an all cash full asking price offer with a ten day escrow. Could one really ask for anything more? Well, quite honestly it was taken care of under the watchful eyes of Adam. The entire experience was easy and dare I say, enjoyable! His calm manner, polished business style and personal touch put us at ease from the moment we met them. His marketing and technology skills were put into action immediately. Almost everything was done in the comfort of our home. We never felt pressured, always had our concerns addressed and literally flew through the sale. We highly recommend Adam for your excellent professional attitude in all aspects of the sale. We received everything from him we had hoped for and more!"
-Luke M, Client
"We were fairly new to the CA area and did not know a whole lot about the housing market. A friend of ours referred us to Adam and he was a huge help. We spent a few months doing some research and saving our money and Adam was very patient and helpful throughout the process. We never felt rushed or pressured and he was willing to give us his time and expertise. When the right home came along he helped us move into action and secure the first home we offered on! n nThe escrow and closing process proved to be stressful for us and Adam was a great resource to lean on when we had questions or needed help. We would definitely recommend Adam to anyone looking for an agent. He is very kind, professional and has a great deal of knowledge."
-Josh & Alicia Patnode, Client
"Adam Alcaraz represented me when I sold my primary residence. He has have great expertise in the area. He was extremely responsive, communicated well with me, and helped me every step along the way.You can tell that he loves what he does, which is of great benefit to his clients. I felt that he provided excellent online advertisement and other effective marketing tactics, above and beyond what was expected. Note, I have worked with other excellent and trusted residential agents in the past to sell my investment properties, so I have a good benchmark for comparison. Adam was realistic in pricing my home, data driven, honest, truthful, and positive. He encouraged me only to do what was in my own best interest. I would highly recommend him to any family member or friend as an ethical, knowledgeable, efficient, and effective real estate team. I feel that I would trust him to help me in my next real estate transaction as well. Thank you, Adam Alcaraz. "

"Adam Alcaraz handled a very difficult sale for me and did so in an excellent manner. He is extremely knowledgeable in the field of real estate and specializes in the handling of distressed properties."
-Brooke Andersen, Client
"Adam pretty much worked for me around the clock during my coast to coast move. Everything I texted him or asked him about a house he ran with immediately. He often spotted things about a home or an area and would steer me away from some since I didn't know the L.A. area at all. Great agent and cared about me on a personal level."
-Chris Anger, Client
"Adam Alcaraz was our listing agents for our home in Foothill Ranch,CA. Adam came into our home the end of May and suggested the listing price. He was encouraging, and provided all the information needed to arrive at our listing price.He was very knowledgeable and kept us informed on all the reviews and feedback remarks. Our first showing was May 25th and we CLOSED July 07! That is how he works. Proficient, and direct. There was a sticky situation in the end and Adam used his skills, integrity and professional tone to make the closing continue in a smooth fashion. In looking for a listing agent, honesty, integrity and knowledge of the real estate market are the key components to look for. Adam has it all. Adam Alcaraz should be commended for a job well done. Look no further. He is who you want to sell your home !! He is a gentleman and just the top of the list! "
