About Us

Paul Hoffman - Broker Associate, Realtor®, Hom | Sotheby's International Realty

Paul is a seasoned and well respected Realtor that has consistently ranked as one of Southern California's top producers. He is a Broker Associate, with HOM | Sotheby's International Realty based in Newport Beach, California.  Paul prides himself on having extensive knowledge of the real estate market, innovative marketing and unmatched client dedication.  He is known for his integrity, friendly demeanor and professionalism.  These qualities together with his proven negotiating skills and decades of successful experience have earned him a stream of referrals and repeat clientele.
Paul was raised on the east coast in a beach community of New Jersey.  Having success in track and field growing up, with school records that still remain, he was recruited on a decathletes scholarship to West Virginia University.   After graduating with a bachelors degree in public relations, he entered the advertising/fashion industry based out of New York City and traveled extensively world wide for over a decade as a male model.  Working on assignment he lived in Italy and worked abroad including virtually every country in Europe, all over the African continent, Russia, Cuba, Caribbean Islands, and Central America. He was cast and under contract for six years as the international "Camel Man" for R.J. Reynolds, one of the top male contracts ever negotiated in the business.  These travels to some of the most unique areas of the world enhanced his interest in homes and architecture.
After marrying into a family of real estate brokers and developers, Paul was licensed in 1993 and began buying and selling properties for his own personal investments.  His skilled eye for finding under valued properties quickly launched his career that brought hundreds of buyers and sellers together from all walks of life.  Over 20 years later, having handled over 500 transactions, Paul's areas of expertise encompass all price ranges including multi million dollar luxury estates, entry level homes, condos, investment properties, land and leases.
His advertising background taught him the importance of an effective and distinctive marketing edge.  This gained him the reputation of representing interesting and unique properties and has generated an extensive international client base.  After years of creating his own successful marketing campaign, Paul joined forces with HOM | Sotheby's International Realty based in Newport Beach because of their superb marketing vision.  Due to his strong following in the desert communities, he was instrumental in helping them expand their brand into the Coachella Valley as one of their founding members. 
Paul with the help of his committed sales team, has spent the last 15 years selling two lifestyles that commonly crossover, the Southern California coastline of Orange County to the sunny desert valley from Palm Springs to La Quinta.  He and his family have had homes in the Village of Corona Del Mar and Irvine Terrace as well as desert properties in Indian Wells and Rancho Mirage.  He along with his wife of 20 years are currently raising their two teen age children in Corona Del Mar, his area of emphasis.  They live in the outstanding community of Irvine Terrace where he serves as a board member of the Home Owners Association.  Paul spends his spare time with his family and their many activities as well as being an avid mountain biker and sports enthusiast.
