FACES of Orange County 2021

Face of Laguna Beach – John Stanaland

The Face of Laguna Beach

Born and raised in Laguna Beach like the four generations before him, John Stanaland was raised with real estate in his blood. Leading the fifth generation of real estate professionals in his family, John proudly carries on a century-long legacy of extraordinary vision and market insight, with a nuanced understanding of every enclave and amenity within Orange County’s upscale coastal communities.

“I think what makes me unique is my family history and ties to this area,” he explains. “I have a very deep understanding of the town, community and people. It’s an amazing place.”

When it comes to serving his clients, John brings a sense of urgency to every interaction, coupled with his innate honesty and integrity. With record-setting listings and sales totaling several billions of dollars, John’s impressive reputation is well-deserved. But his success is
about more than accolades – it’s about the relationships he’s built along the way.

“Without question my priority is to put each client’s interests first – helping them achieve their real estate goals and finding a home they love is what makes this so rewarding. That’s why I love what I do.”

Of course, living and working in Laguna Beach, John is not all work and no play. When not closing a sale, you’ll find him skydiving, fishing or spiking a volleyball, and spending time with his wife and his dogs. “I own a 3lb Yorkie and a 100lb shepherd. My wife is a veterinarian and had the Shepard when we met – I had the Yorkie!”
