More about Bill Schonlau

Top Producer - 5 consecutive years

He has been the top agent for 5 consecutive years in the Newport Beach Coast Highway Office of Coldwell Banker and is in the top one percent of all Coldwell Banker agents worldwide.
Locally known as "Mr. Oceanfront," Schonlau has sold 60 Southern California oceanfront properties of which 54 are in Newport Beach, but he also handles clients in such a way that they come back to him for their other real estate needs. As a result of his outstanding customer service, one former oceanfront client used Schonlau for four additional transactions.

As a long time Newport Beach resident, he has owned seven local oceanfront properties and presently lives in one. Schonlau's in-depth local experience has made him an expert on key oceanfront issues, such as boardwalk versus non-boardwalk locations, lot size variations, traffic and noise considerations, city beach use policies, and more. Thus, he is also extremely qualified to educate buyers on the subtle differences and unique features of each neighborhood.
Schonlau also made significant contributions to the community over the years. Among them, he has chaired the City's Parks, Beaches, and Recreation Commission; served as the President of the West Newport Beach Association, founded and served as first President of the Newport Pier Association, and sat on the board of the Central Newport Community Association.
Known for his honesty, integrity, dependability, and "can do" attitude, Schonlau regularly handles repeat business and client referrals. "While I focus on the immediate transaction, I'm also looking far beyond it. My larger goal is to represent my clients for life. The only way to earn that level of confidence is to provide exceptional service, great communication and expert guidance."
