Get to know Paula Knauft

I've lived on The OC Riviera for almost 20 years and following a long and successful career as a sales marketing executive for several global manufacturers in the home furnishings industry, I became a Realtor in 2002. Since my first year I've consistently earned recognition as a Top Producing agent for Orange County real estate transactions for both buyers and sellers. I understand that real estate is a serious business requiring large financial transactions and recognize the importance of my role as a Realtor within the transaction by embracing the highest standards of honesty and ethical behavior. My experience as vice president of sales & marketing for a distinguished European furniture company provides me with insight into the needs of home buyers. I follow current market analysis and changing trends and bring this expertise to support my clients' negotiations. I am deeply committed to meeting the needs of the homeowner and potential buyer and guiding clients towards achieving their dreams.

I volunteer as a docent at the Mission San Juan Capistrano where I am also a member of the Women's Guild Board. I'm originally from Cincinnati, Ohio.
