FACES of Orange County 2017

No. 7 Corona Del Mar Real Estate

Casey Lesher of HOM SOTHEBY’S INTERNATIONAL REALTY

In the Newport Beach real estate circuit, Casey Lesher’s ability to regularly close multimillion-dollar transactions with ease is somewhat legendary. As one of Orange County’s top agents at HÔM Sotheby’s International Realty, Lesher takes pride in quickly selling properties that have previously lagged on the market, often setting new pricing records for his sellers. Lesher’s love for his profession began at age 10 when he became intrigued with the beautiful cars parked outside a local real estate office. “It was the late ‘70s and real estate agents drove brand new Cadillacs. I went in there and I started talking to them and began to learn everything about that business,” he recalls. After forays in other professions, Lesher made the leap into real estate in 2007, selling $25 million his first year. In 2016, Lesher was awarded a coveted Five Star Professional designation based on client satisfaction surveys, and has been the number one agent with the most transactions in Corona del Mar since 2015. Clearly at the top of his game, Lesher’s early passions remain unchanged. A classic car collector who owns an ‘86 Jaguar Vanden Plas, a ‘76 Cadillac Eldorado convertible, and an ‘89 560SL—amongst others, he lives and breathes Corona del Mar real estate and knows every property on and off the market. “When I walk in a door, I know how much a house is worth and what it’s going to sell for. It’s just in my blood.”
