Michael Caruso

After more than three decades as a top-producing real estate agent and two decades running his own successful real estate brokerage, Michael Caruso has embarked upon a new chapter in his legacy career as a managing partner and California Broker of Record with The Agency.

Fast approaching $1 Billion in closed real estate sales, Michael has earned a reputation as one of Orange County’s foremost brokers. Working alongside his wife Cristina and son Phillip, Michael specializes in pairing families and individuals with exceptional homes that meet their lifestyle criteria for luxury coastal real estate. An Orange County resident for the past 30 years, Michael draws upon his extensive local knowledge, comprehensive understanding of construction design and talent for tracking the latest design trends to serve as a trusted advocate for a wide-ranging clientele.

Michael began his real estate career in development and property management in Florida. After moving to California in 1976, he joined forces with several coastal real estate firms and quickly ranked among the top 100 agents worldwide for sales and service. He then founded and operated his own independent real estate firm in Orange County for nearly 20 years, with hundreds of millions in personal closed sales. Recognized for his unique, customer-centric approach, Michael has successfully represented buyers and sellers from Santa Monica and the Hollywood Hills to Orange County and San Diego. His unrelenting focus, easygoing nature and penchant for overcoming each challenge that comes his way have always been the foundation of his success.

A Certified Luxury Home Marketing Specialist, Michael has served the real estate industry as President of the Orange County Association of Realtors and is an ardent community volunteer. He devotes his time and resources to local and distant building projects with Habitat for Humanity and is an ambassador for ocean clean up with 4Ocean. When he’s not serving his clients or at the office, he enjoys early morning tennis matches, high intensity boot camp workouts, kayaking, and paddle boarding in the Dana Point and Newport Beach harbors as well as local fishing.
