Born and raised in Laguna Beach, Halsey Williams offers unparalleled insights of the area and its communities, lifestyle and history. He’s a “local’s local,” someone who’s walked every beach from Three Arch Bay to Irvine Cove, who’s experienced the Bluebird Canyon landslide and the area’s last four major fires, and who has firsthand knowledge of Laguna in the free spirited 60s and 70s, all of which he draws from to advise his clients about different neighborhoods, housing trends and more.
With a business background that includes 23 years of management (customer service) experience in the telecommunications sector, he has a well-honed ability to oversee even complicated transactions with streamlined, detail-oriented efficiency. That, coupled with his naturally warm personality and passion for helping his clients find the right fit for their needs and goals, even if it takes years, are what have made him rank consistently among Laguna’s top agents.
Dedicated to providing personalized service for his clients, Halsey has a wide network of contacts, colleagues and both repeat and referral clients, and prides himself on out-of-the-box thinking for any transaction he handles. He strives to make the experience of buying or selling fun, exciting and stress-free. And while he specializes in the sale and purchase of Laguna Beach properties, he regularly assists clients throughout coastal Orange County. Away from the office, Halsey is often outdoors playing tennis, he’s been a regular at the Canyon Courts for more than 50 years, and loves golfing and surfing. He lives in Laguna Beach with his wife of 30+ years; his adult son is also a licensed realtor and lives in the area.
Halsey brings his extensive network of contacts, Laguna Beach expertise and belief in the power of teamwork to the Penny & Don Pattillo Team, after many years of working with a top luxury residential real estate brokerage.
