AGENT OF THE WEEK Q & A With Jorge Anzaldi

Marketing Executive Turns Rising Real Estate Professional
Q . What brought you to Laguna Beach ? A . Growing up for most of my adolescence in neighboring Irvine , Laguna Beach was always on my radar . Drawn to the beautiful landscape and deep cultural roots to the artistic and LGBTQ + communities , my husband , Jonathan , and I made the move to Laguna Beach in July of 2020 .
Q . What were you doing before real estate ? A . Prior to real estate I had an exciting 12-year marketing career that took me to major cities , including Chicago , New York City , and Los Angeles . With a lot of hard work and many late nights , I quickly climbed the corporate ladder and built award-winning marketing strategies for brands such as J . Crew , Pressed Juicery , and IPSY . Print , digital , event marketing — you name it , I did it . In addition to that , I also spent time building digital strategies for luxury real estate developers in New York
City , including Extell , JDS , and DDG . Looking back at it , working alongside those developers and the sales teams was likely when I first got the “ real estate bug .”
Q . What inspired you to get into real estate ? A . All my life I have been surrounded by real estate with my mom , brother , and sister all being agents . One could say real estate is in my blood ! Once I moved to Laguna , I couldn ’ t shake this feeling that I was ready for a new challenge . After many discussions with colleagues and friends , I finally decided to give in , take a leap of faith , and embark on a new journey as a real estate professional . For me , it ’ s the perfect fit . In a field that continues to evolve , I am able to bring my extensive marketing experience and couple it with my passion for people and relationship building . Because of my background , I am able to stand out and offer something unique to clients .
Q . Favorite part about working in real estate ? A . Providing great customer service . I truly believe that is the heartbeat of this industry . My many years working in the service industry taught me just how important customer service is not only to your business but for your soul . It ’ s all about respect and being a real human that communicates with sincerity , honesty , and kindness . Every client you encounter is unique , and I like to challenge myself to continuously find new ways to go above and beyond expectations and always anticipate their needs . The homes are pretty nice , too !
Q . What motivates you ? A . My mom — she is the hardest working and strongest person I know . She was younger than I am today when she took a big risk and immigrated from Mexico to California with her five
JORGE ANZALDI kids in hopes of giving us a better opportunity at life . She was a single mom raising us all on her own while living in a country where she didn ’ t know the language . Over time she taught herself English , got her real estate license , and raised us all to be successful in our own ways . She is a strong , fiery Latina with a zest for life and I am proud to be her son .
Q . What do you do on your days off ? A . Trick question — there are no days off ! But when I ’ m not doing real estate , I am typically spending time with my French Bulldog , Burrata , and my husband . I am also always reading a book and have an endless queue of movies and shows I want to watch .
