One of Orange County’s premier agents Ariana Gaffoglio and her team have joined OFFICIAL, leading the firm’s foray into Orange County, California. Gaffoglio and her team, with a career sales volume of more than $1 billion, are the latest addition to OFFICIAL, a next generation real estate brokerage growing through expansion together with only the most seasoned real estate professionals.
Gaffoglio most recently launched and spearheaded the Eklund | Gomes Team of Douglas Elliman’s Orange County and Las Vegas presence and has brokered some of the region’s most significant transactions, including the sale of 4130 Calle Isabella, a San Clemente property known as Casa San Mateo, for $33.9M. She was also involved in the sale of a Dana Point property in Strand Beach that set a local record at $23.55M.
“I’m proud of everything I accomplished with Eklund | Gomes after successfully building the team’s presence in Orange County and Las Vegas. It is clear that success in our industry will be achieved by the talent one is surrounded by and I feel fortunate to have been recognized by OFFICIAL and to be joining them on this journey to build the most connected luxury real estate brand in the world,” said Gaffoglio.
“My clients are some of the savviest business people in the world. They expect the highest level of service in every facet of their lives and I am confident that OFFICIAL’s private office approach to managing client’s global portfolios is what is in the best interest of my business.”
Joined by her team which comprises veterans Zac Dweck and Kimberly Karney, Gaffoglio will focus on growing OFFICIAL in Orange County with plans to expand into Nevada before year’s end.
“Ariana is the ultimate exemplification of our vision to build a firm comprising only the best real estate professionals in the world,” said Nicole Oge, Co-Founder and Chief Growth Officer of OFFICIAL. “The value of a brokerage brand should not be measured by the number of agents and offices, it should be measured by the quality of each individual carrying the company’s business card. One day very soon, to state you are an OFFICIAL agent will immediately convey to a client that you are operating at a higher level,” Oge went on to say.
Gaffoglio is a life-long resident of Orange County, specializing in the luxury coastal market. Licensed in California, Texas, and Nevada, her specialty translates from condos to oceanfront properties and large estates, whether in Orange County, state-wide or across the nation. She plays an active role in her community as a mentor for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Orange County, and on the board of LeadOC, a charity that offers financial support to local non-profit organizations focused on children and military families.
OFFICIAL is continuing its quick expansion in the California luxury market after the announcement in January 2023 that top LA agent Tyrone McKillen and his Plus Real Estate Group joined OFFICIAL, bringing experience of over 16 years and record sales of over $1.5 billion. OFFICIAL now operates in Manhattan, the Hamptons, and South Florida, as well as Los Angeles and Orange County with plans for continued national and international expansion this year.
Founded by industry veterans Nicole Oge, Richard Jordan, and Andrew Wachtfogel alongside nationally recognized agents Oren and Tal Alexander, OFFICIAL is the first performance-driven real estate brand and advisory comprised exclusively of a curated selection of real estate professionals working within the pinnacle segment of the market. The firm’s operating model is unique in that, unlike traditional brokerage firms, each team has demonstrated extraordinary success in their local market and is among the 1% of agents operating in the region.
Gaffoglio will bring nearly $200 million of both resales and new development properties to OFFICIAL, spanning locations from Irvine to Newport Beach to Los Angeles.
