Luxury Orange County real estate brokerage gains marketplace leader.

Engel & Völkers Gestalt Group announced today that Carolynn Santaniello has joined its brokerage, bringing over fourteen years of experience as a top-performing agent and well-regarded coach to its team of global real estate advisors.

Santaniello comes to Engel & Völkers from Seven Gables Real Estate and specializes in luxury residential real estate for buyers and sellers in Orange, Tustin, and the surrounding inland areas of Orange County.

“Carolynn exemplifies the competence, exclusivity, and passion that are the core values of our brand,” said Mark Kelaidis, general manager for Engel & Völkers Newport Beach and a licensed partner for Engel & Völkers Gestalt Group. “She has built an incredible reputation for herself, and we are extremely proud to welcome her to our team. We also look forward to attracting more talent like hers as we expand our presence from Newport Beach and the coast to the diverse inland opportunities that Orange County offers.”

Having completed nearly 200 transactions of mostly single family homes and condominiums, Santaniello is known for her advanced skill set in more complex residential real estate transactions, such as probate, short sales, and investment properties. Her clients praise her for her authenticity and care as she deftly negotiates on their behalf. Past award titles include “Innovation on Behalf of Clients” and “Top Agent.” In addition, her fashion industry background working with brands such as Roxy and Quiksilver, followed by living internationally in various European countries, imbue her marketing with a special eye for aesthetics.

“I wasn’t looking to change brokerages,” said Santaniello, “but after several years selling and mentoring fellow agents, I was ready to shake things up. I saw that Engel & Völkers offers something different and exceptional, and I saw the opportunity to become part of a global brand,” said Santaniello. “It’s really invigorating for me to be part of such a collaborative team with international reach and a fresh approach to marketing. I’m looking forward to sharing the unique E&V culture in Orange, North Tustin, Villa Park, and beyond.”
