Meet John Corrales

John Corrales started his career 2 decades ago at South Bay Brokers and not only became one of their top producing agents, he was also the first agent hired who was not a broker at the time or did not have 10 years of experience. Then, before having an office in downtown Manhattan Beach became popular, John was asked to open a high-end boutique shop at Northwest Realty where he later re-branded the company, NW Real Estate, and recruited more than 2 dozen agents who are still ensconced there today making dreams and deals come true.

John states, “It makes complete sense when you see the big picture. The town of Manhattan Beach changed when Metlox opened and made being downtown more accessible and attractive. So, why not work there too?” Later, in 2012, John was once again tapped to help the Manhattan Beach office of Coldwell Banker take off, and he made it happen in style by helping bring great agents to the company as well as having record-setting sales in Manhattan Beach, Hermosa Beach and Palos Verdes Estates. He is a graduate of the University of Southern California. John was a past board member at the Roundhouse Aquarium in Manhattan Beach and he currently serves as a board member for the foundation Freedom4U.


"Working with Lauren and John has been a terrific experience. I truly appreciate their efforts in finding the right home for my family and me. Their help was invaluable throughout the entire process-before and after my move. Thank you Lauren and John!"

"Savvy, hands-on representation by people who really know the market and how to get things done. John Corrales and the entire team were a pleasure to work with. The sale negotiations with our buyer were particularly complex, but John maneuvered it through like the professional he is"

- Robert Katzberg

"We hired Lauren and John after interviewing the top agents in the South Bay. They were selected because of their experience, aggressive marketing plan and impressive results. Although not an easy transaction, I would highly recommend Lauren, she's everything that she advertises. She did an excellent job of broadly marketing our property, pushing buyers to get the highest possible price, counseled me on bridging any issues and was very good at communicating. I will definitely be using her on my next transaction."
