About Us

Based in Newport Beach and serving clients throughout Coastal Orange County, Arbor Real Estate represents a revolution in the luxury real estate market. Here, a select team of high-performance real estate professionals have created a client-centered, digitally-powered brokerage intentionally designed to be small-scale, entrepreneurial, nimble, and - ultimately - better for its clients, agents and the community. 

Chris Brigandi founded Arbor Real Estate as a company with its roots firmly planted in the values of community, collaboration and client service. “While our agents are the best in the business, what truly unites us is that we live, work, raise kids, coach sports teams, support local causes and love our communities with an unwavering passion,”he says.

In 2015, Arbor Real Estate expanded to meet the demand for its groundbreaking approach to real estate in markets beyond Newport Beach, including Corona del Mar, Laguna Beach,  Newport Coast, Eastside Costa Mesa, and Shady Canyon. Joining Brigandi at Arbor Real Estate are Jon Dishon, Nicole Dishon, Ron Millar and Rob Montgomery. In addition, Kristin Barry continues as the firm’s broker of record.

“Arbor Real Estate represents an important divergence from - and improvement to - the way luxury residential real estate is conducted in our region,”said Jon Dishon. “As an intentionally small-scale brokerage with a team composed solely of top-producing, full-time, laser-focused professionals dedicated to collaboration and client satisfaction, Arbor is unique and, we believe, better.”

Arbor Real Estate’s progressive business model translates into significant competitive advantages and market-leading benefits for its clients, including:

Locals with deep connections within the industry/community = access to deals before they hit the market

Entrepreneurial and nimble = adjusting to market conditions and adopting new digital and other advances quickly and efficiently to stay light years ahead of the competition  

Industry’s most advanced digital platform =  fastest to market, most responsive and most accurately data-driven team in the business

Paperless transactions = speed wins, and also positively impacts the environment 

Community programs = Committed to giving back to the communities we call home

“We pride ourselves on doing things differently at Arbor. Not just for the sake of a great advertising headline - but because we truly believe that doing real estate differently is better for our clients and our communities,”says Brigandi. “At Arbor, we are inclusive, not exclusive. We work with clients in all price ranges, we work across all area neighborhoods, and we collaborate with agents from every brokerage. Arbor is not real estate as usual.”
