John Corrales grew up in a small farming town outside of Stockton, California. Weekdays were spent at school and playing various sports. Weekends were for taking the farming produce to San Francisco to be sold at the farmer’s markets.
John attended the University of Southern California and graduated in 1992. With its expansive Los Angeles network, USC became training grounds for long lasting friendships and business relationships. The university teaches that you have to show up and to be accountable. And, by being part of the large alumni community, USC takes care of their own, because many of the individuals engage, contribute and have something to offer long after graduation.
Starting out at a real estate company with over 150 agents that boasted the highest sales production per agent in Los Angeles County, it was no small accomplishment to become their #4 Top Producer in the shortest amount of time. Many people say its better to focus on one thing in the business to become successful. He found it more my style to spread out, to knock on doors in many different neighborhoods and to be involved in retail luxury, short sales and REO.
Opening Corrales Luxury and REO office at Northwest Realty in May of 2006 right in the heart of the financial district was paramount. There were only 2 locations that get the most attention and this one was one them. The office is built to be a boutique luxury real estate office where clients and friends can depend on him as their real estate resource. John does a lot of business but doesn’t focus on doing the most, because there must be a balance to keep the personal service aspect and the creativity flowing.
In 2009, John transformed the entire company to NW Real Estate Brokers with the natural, modern and edgy style is known for today. Most recently John and his partner Lauren Forbes have created an Evolution and moved over to Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage. Together they have opened up the first satelite office for the Manhattan Beach branch on Farmer's Market Lane. Come in and see the transformation and meet the new team at 1300 Highland Avenue Suite 104 & 105 in Manhattan Beach.
John is currently ranked #49 in Los Angeles County as of August 2011
