Cari & Britt Group
Vista Sotheby's International Realty
About Cari & Britt

#1 Top Producing Team for Vista Sotheby's International Realty for 2020. South Bay-based, top real estate agents Cari Corbalis & Britt Austin have turned the art of home-selling and home-buying into a storied career. Working out of conveniently-located Redondo Beach offices, realtors Cari Corbalis & Britt Austin have made a name for themselves throughout the South Bay by providing people who want to buy or sell a home on the Palos Verdes Peninsula and the coastal cities of Redondo Beach, Manhattan Beach and Hermosa Beach a more sophisticated approach and a more reliable process. You’ll see these plucky and personable two all over the neighborhood, enjoying the area’s best eateries while explaining the finer points of an offer to their sellers or as they escort eager buyers to their soon-to-be favorite new haunts. More results. Less drama, mystery & suspense. Cari’s the Mom, your guardian and protector. Britt’s the business-minded, tech-savvy daughter. But this family adventure in high-end real estate all began back in the 80’s when Cari happened to take a course on real estate law. Interested by the topic and intrigued at the prospect of turning her love of luxury homes into a full-fledged career, Cari soon began out-selling many of the more senior agents. As her desire to command top prices for her sellers grew, she became a licensed home stager, sharing this body of knowledge so clients could increase home value by mastering the aesthetics and the psychology of the sale. Daughter Britt, the multi-tasking, ambitious marketing grad, grew up inspired by her mother’s unique ability to quickly consummate deals and bring joy to her clients’ lives. Nine years ago, fueled by the same desire to provide a smoother, easier client experience, Britt chose to partner up with Cari. Thanks to both nature and nurture, Britt has delivered tens of millions dollars in home sales. Her success is due to a similar passion for providing both sellers and buyers a more refined, more high-end real estate experience. Additionally, she’s a beautiful complement to Cari’s core talents, possessing greater marketing and social media savvy, along with the managerial ability to recruit, lead and supervise a team of strategic partners. By paying closer attention to the needs of clients and the fluctuations in the market, the two soon found the calmer, more enjoyable experience they delivered was something both sellers and buyers not only valued but celebrated. Today, they stand as two of the area’s most well-respected and high-performing real estate agents. Together, they share in a belief that enduring success in the real estate industry will always be more about people than it is about property. Now, if only every mother and daughter got along this famously…

About Lauren

Getting to the heart of issues and finding resolutions is one of Lauren’s trademark styles. Her clients say she is a “jewel”, “tenacious, helpful, smart and creative”, “focused”, “brilliant negotiator, and that the "biggest differentiating factor between Lauren and other brokers is her ability to get things done.” Hard work and a J.D. from Loyola Law School certainly put her in the top 1%. Maybe it’s magic. But, it’s not. What puts Lauren in the top 1% of the top 1% is her consistent hard work, authenticity, and integrity. Although she does extremely high volume, she is accessible to her clients and is normally the one who reaches out first, making her clients feel like they are the top 1% of the top 1%. Lauren is extremely well-versed in the contractual elements of the transactions and has a giant network of support to make things happen where others fall short. Lauren is on the boards of several charities and is committed to making a difference whenever and wherever she can. She has spoken and numerous top producer panels and given motivational speeches to large groups of realtors and to those considering getting into the profession. She loves hot yoga, running, and meditation. Spending time with her two teenagers brings joy and excitement to her life.
