Having resided in Laguna Beach for more than two decades, Bernadette Whelan possesses a long-standing passion for the area and all it has to offer. Throughout each of her endeavors as a trusted real estate professional, that passion is pervasive – clients depend on Bernadette not only for her time-sculpted knowledge when it comes to the local marketplace, but for her ability to intuit their most important needs and develop strategic plans for bringing them to fruition. Having conceived, created and operated her own children’s clothing boutique – an undertaking that included designing and manufacturing a line of clothing that was distributed to wholesale accounts – she brings to the table a noted proficiency with regard to “big picture” thinking. If the success she’s helped so many clients achieve is any indication, this quality represents one of the most important a real estate agent can possess.
Having partnered with Surterre Properties®, a leading, full-service real estate firm in Southern California, Bernadette complements her diverse set of talents and skills with an unprecedented level of support – support that’s tailored to suit the highly specialized needs of Orange County’s luxury coastal marketplace. In addition to an award-winning in-house advertising studio, Surterre boasts a network comprised of the area’s most accomplished agents, as well as the industry’s latest advances. These and so many other resources and amenities enable Bernadette to focus her efforts on perfecting the level of service that she offers.
A member of the California Association of REALTORS®, Bernadette’s an ongoing supporter of countless local charities in addition to Acres of Love in South Africa.
