About Lisa

Lisa Thompson, J.D., Realtor®

Clients all over the world know there is no agent who invests more time and attention to detail than Lisa Thompson. With tremendous experience in editing and publishing books, and writing contracts, Lisa specializes in fulfilling every client’s wildest real estate dreams through old-fashioned hard work and customer service.

Lisa received her J.D. degree in 1991 from California Western School of Law, and began her career as an Estate Planning lawyer, advising clients on family and real estate matters.  Fifteen years ago, realizing that “advice" often wasn’t pragmatic enough, she moved into the practical side of real estate, first by helping to stage properties for quicker sales, and later moving into whole-home interior decoration as a hobby and international sales.

Lisa Thompson has sold luxury homes, condos and ranches in the USA and South America, and is ready to use her creative tools, smart resources and excellent strategies to save you money in the sale or purchase of your home.  Lisa is a Certified Military Specialist, a Seniors Specialist, a member of both the California Board of Realtors® and the National Board of Realtors.®  Fluent in Spanish, she has negotiated and closed a number of deals with contracts only in Castellano.

Lisa lives in Laguna Niguel with her husband, Geoffrey, and their Yorkie, Benny, and enjoys gardening, hiking and community service.

An excellent luxury saleswoman gathers knowledge and style from various sources.  From Manhattan and Paris to London and Rome, and from Santiago and Santo Domingo to Grand Cayman and San Jose de Los Cabos, Lisa's travels have taken her to the classy and chic of international hotspots, from metropolitan centers of art, fashion and architecture, to the remote beaches of clean sand and clear water where the soul is nourished.

Before joining First Team, Lisa sold gorgeous properties in Chile.

Her international clients can feel confident that when she manages their property acquisitions in Southern California, she has varied knowledge in international sales and can make their real estate process a smooth and pleasant experience.

"My life is like a beautiful Monet painting.  Up close, it's a variety of colors and flavors that when viewed from a distance make a most impressionistic bouquet.  My journey has taken me from my beginnings in St. Louis, to living in England, Spain, Mexico and ten years in Chile.  I've been blessed to be a lawyer, book editor, missionary, and firefighter, and all of these experiences have prepared me to be the best real estate agent you might like to hire.  There are many laws that affect the sale of real property--I have the ability to read and analyze those laws.  Editing seems to be one of those things that fosters professionalism--the mistakes jump out at me!  Having lived in a foreign country for so long makes me compassionate and understanding.  And my successful completion of the Fire Academy further nurtured my heart towards sacrificial service.  All of these things combine to make me the best choice for your real property needs.  It would be my honor to serve you."
