Panetta Proud, Real Estate Professionals
Allison Panetta & Heather Proud joined forces five years ago to create Panetta & Proud -- one of the area's top real estate teams. Together they bring the powerhouse trifecta of unmatched client service, a vibrant network of buyers and sellers and local knowledge of coastal Orange County.
Allison is a highly sought-after real estate professional who has built a reputation for handling each transaction with integrity and diligence ensuring each deal results in the best interest of her clients. She began working in real estate in 2010 at Coldwell Banker in Newport Beach as part of the Tim Carr Group. She was also part of the original group to join Villa Real Estate Professionals.
Before beginning her real estate practice, she spent more than 20 years in the promotional marketing industry in sales and executive management leading a $70 million division. This experience has proven beneficial to her real estate career -- sharpening her sales, contract negotiation, strategic planning and people skills. Add to that skill set her local market knowledge and it's easy to see why Allison has become a dominant force in luxury coastal Orange County real estate.
Arbor Real Estate's commitment to community is one of the things that drew Heather and her to join us in 2018. Allison is passionately involved in community theater, specifically the Attic Community Theater and Orange County Children’s Theater. She also supports CureDuchenne, a Newport Beach organization leading the charge in research, patient care and innovation for improving and extending the lives of children with Duchenne muscular dystrophy. As if all that is not enough to keep her busy she is also a member of the Mariners Elementary PTA.
Allison grew up in a small seacoast town north of Boston called Manchester-by-the-Sea. She moved to Newport Beach in 2006. "Immediately I knew I had found 'home' here in Newport," she says of her adopted hometown. "There is such a feeling of familiarity because it has the same tight-knit, family-focused feel as Manchester."
Heather brings her commitment to stellar client service for both buyers and sellers to Arbor Real Estate. As one of the most highly sought-after agents in coastal Orange County, she has gained a solid reputation for her honesty and professionalism.
In her previous career in TV commercial post-production, she honed the skills of attention to detail and careful listening to client needs. She also learned the valuable skill of keeping her cool during stressful situations -- which has proven helpful in her real estate practice. Heather's clients can attest to her expertise as a real estate professional.
"Heather helped my husband and I buy our first home! Although the home buying process can be tough, she made it go seamlessly for us. She was so generous with her time, very patient, knowledgeable in every step of the way, and most importantly honest. So honest that she even talked us out of a few homes and I thank GOD we listened. Anytime I was nervous or stressed she made me feel better and always listened to me. She's a realtor that not only knows her stuff but actually cares! I couldn't be more happy with our new home and will definitely use her in the future!" - Nat & Mina Beckett, Costa Mesa
Heather lives in Newport with her husband, Scott, who is a firefighter, and their daughter. She serves as a member of the Mariners PTA. In her free time, she enjoys yoga and beach days with her family.
