Marlene Hassel, Real Estate Professional

A graduate of UC Santa Barbara, Marlene Hassel’s real estate background dates back to 1988. Since then, she has consistently been recognized as one of the highest-performing agents in the coastal Orange County area.

As a Southern California native and Newport Beach homeowner, she has an intimate understanding of local neighborhoods and all price ranges. Working throughout Newport Beach, Corona Del Mar, Laguna Beach, and Costa Mesa, Marlene is especially renowned for her leadership in the Newport Heights and Cliff Haven communities, where she has sold nearly 200 homes and represented hundreds of buyers and sellers within these desirable enclaves.

With a background in marketing and advertising, Marlene is well-equipped to seek out the most advanced methods in effective property exposure. She has a keen ability to identify the full potential of a property, as proven in her success as an investor who has remodeled and built many homes.

Marlene applies decades of in-market knowledge and expertise, and renowned negotiating skills, to ensure that her clients achieve the most positive financial outcomes. These distinct market advantages – coupled with her tireless work ethic and meticulous attention to detail – have earned her an impressive roster of repeat, referral, and multi-generational clients.

In her own words, Marlene says “being a realtor is more than just a profession to me - it’s a passion. If my clients aren’t happy, I’m not happy.”

International Buyers & Marketing

Coastal Orange County homebuyers come from a wide range of local and international communities and are often drawn to our area for its world-class lifestyle, exceptional residential properties, and year-round Mediterranean climate.

Villa Real Estate is seeing the significant impact of international buyers in our market, with a high percentage of these buyers interested in purchasing premier homes in our area’s most exclusive enclaves, including the Pelicans in Newport Coast, Crystal Cove, Shady Canyon, and landmark waterfront and oceanfront properties.

To seize these international buyers for our clients, Villa Real Estate has developed the region’s most far-reaching and strategic international marketing campaigns for its clients’ homes. Beyond placing your home on a website or two and checking the international marketing “box” as many of our competitors do, Villa Real Estate has researched and identified the top 25 foreign markets who are transacting in our region and has partnered with the top luxury residential real estate websites serving those markets.

Through a market-exclusive partnership with the highly selective Who's Who In Luxury Real Estate network and its website, LuxuryRealEstate.com, Villa Real Estate agents are part of an international affiliation of leading luxury real estate professionals spanning more than 85 countries. This partnership provides Villa agents with access to a database of international real estate agents and foreign individuals of high net-worth.
