John Babai

Founder & Broker

Ask anyone who knew John Babai while he was growing up in Southern California, and they’ll tell you stories of how he’d sense a need in the market and rush in to fill that need. Long before he was in the top 1.5% of agents state-wide, John was honing his entrepreneurial skillset — first as a young boy serving customers in his parents’ Italian restaurant, and later in high school, while overseeing several successful businesses. Real estate soon followed.

John joined the industry in 2001, even before earning a bachelor’s degree from UC Irvine in management and political science with a specialization in law. It didn’t take long for him to realize that real estate was the most stable path to wealth and that he wanted to help others create it. John’s advice is backed by his real-life experience in many facets of the industry: He’s sold over 1,000 homes and has rehabbed more than 95. He also self-manages a diversified personal portfolio of residential and commercial properties, and serves as president of three HOA boards.

John’s mission is to help his clients make smart real estate decisions that produce short-and long-term benefits. Along with his in-depth knowledge of construction, management, contracts, and laws, John protects his clients and alleviates any issues that may arise during a transaction. He’s a passionate advisor and advocate who works tirelessly in pursuit of his clients’ desired goals, which he aims to exceed.

John is married to his business partner Bahia, and they have three adventurous children who are learning Mandarin and Spanish. As a family, they love to discover cuisine from all corners of the world, and John is as enthusiastic about food as he is about real estate, which is why he balances his indulgences with regular HIIT exercise classes. Additionally, John and his son regularly volunteer at homeless outreach events and monthly Food Share functions that help underserved residents of Orange County.
