Ron Arnold
Keller Williams Brea/Fullerton
About Ron

We are in one of the craziest markets I have ever seen! With such limited inventory, houses are getting bid up to crazy prices. This is why it is more important than ever to have an advocate in your corner who truly wants what is your best interest. I am a native of Los Angeles County, and have lived in Orange County for over 30 years. For 18 of those years I ran a Christian Bookstore chain and LOVED what I did. Through a personal experience purchasing a home for my family in 96’ I developed a STRONG distaste for Realtors. When I walked into my home, I remember telling my agent that “after all the ugly and backroom dealings I had seen in his industry, the last profession I would ever work in was Real Estate ". But the Lord had other plans for me. 23 years later, I have been a Realtor full-time since 2002, and have served over 900 families buying or selling homes since then. I lead a fabulous team of 6 other Realtors and two additional operations staff. My team and I are different – we are dedicated to protecting our clients, respecting them, honoring them, and even loving them. We get great joy from treating people well in an industry that still does not do a great job of that. If you are looking for someone who will represent you with experience, skill, and most of all integrity; you will not be disappointed in selecting me and my team as your representative. My teams list to sales price ratio is 105%, with an average $62,000 more money for our seller's.

What should you look for when interviewing a real estate agent in Brea?
When you sell a house, your real estate agent becomes your business partner, financial advisor, and emotional support system. It’s crucial to partner with someone you trust, so make sure you’re looking for an agent who can answer all of your questions with confidence during the interview. During this process, you want to get to know the agent’s business and find out how well they know the area. You’re listening for things that signal experience, expertise in your community, and workload.
