100 percent of our business is California real estate. Lucas Real Estate is a unique full-service residential real estate brokerage and residential real estate law firm, offering both real estate brokerage services and real estate legal services, including expert tax advice, under one roof.
The Lucases assists individuals, investors and trustees in all forms of real estate transactions – buying, selling, management, foreign investment, discrete and confidential transactions, dispute resolution, and so much more – with emphasis in residential real estate in Newport Beach (specializing in Newport Heights, Newport Coast, Corona Del Mar, the Newport Peninsula and Peninsula Point), Costa Mesa (specializing in Eastside Costa Mesa and Mesa del Mar) and surrounding Southern California communities.
Lucas Real Estate is especially adept with investment properties and trust and estate administration, where our attorney and CPA backgrounds are especially useful and assuring.
Likewise, for discrete and confidential transactions (including confidentiality agreements, LLCs and third-party LLC management to legally distance true ownership away from public records), Lucas Real Estate is second to none in assisting high profile clientele and foreign investment with residential real estate.

Virtually all services can be conducted in-person, via video conference or teleconference; we use the latest technology to ensure our business and your goals move seamlessly in this challenging time.
For traditional on-market residential real estate sales, the Lucases work with Villa Real Estate – the area’s leading luxury residential brokerage – to combine their own objective acumen and outside the box capabilities with Villa Real Estate’s unparalleled market exposure, servicing, insight, marketing professionals and opportunities.
