With more than a decade of experience in Orange County real estate, Todd Bousman understands the coastal lifestyle - and delivers it to his clients through strategic and knowledgable representation. Bousman develops a deep personal connection with each of his clients, placing their goals and interests first and foremost in every transaction. In addition, his unsurpassed expertise, proven track record and impressive network of contacts has forged one of the region’s top real estate practices - bouHAUS living (a division of Nook Real Estate) with a focus on Dover Shores, Newport Heights, Eastside Costa Mesa, and the Upper Newport Bay submarkets.
Bousman’s prior career as a professional surfer, and then as a marketing and sales executive in the action sports industry, gives him a deep and meaningful understanding of the area, its one-of-a-kind culture and enduring appeal, and the dynamic nuances of its real estate market. As a result, he’s become one of the region’s most trusted real estate advisers, consulting for buyers, sellers, and developers alike on single-family homes and urban lofts from Los Angeles and Long Beach to Orange County.
Bousman is especially known for his passion for unique homes, including many Mid Century-inspired properties, modern homes, and eclectic residences that break the mold of the typical Orange County tract home and beach house. Bousman prides himself on finding properties to suit each and every client, whether it’s uncovering a turn-key architectural gem or leveraging his background in design to transform an ideally located property into a client’s dream home.
Regardless if they are buying or selling, Bousman’s clients can expect his mix of successful advertising, marketing, and sales campaigns — as well as his exceptional negotiation skills — to ensure that the each and every deal gets done, and done well. This SoCal native, who’s lived in OC for the past 40 years, now resides in Eastside Costa Mesa with his wife, Lori.
A bit more about Todd Bousman, in his own words:
Q: Why are you passionate about real estate?
A: I’m a closet design and architecture geek…and I love what a HAUS represents: freedom, independence, individuality, safety, a nest egg
Q: What’s your favorite architectural style for homes and why?
A: I have an eclectic blend of favorites. Mid-Century Post and Beam stands out, but I love clean and simple lines, nothing ornate or over-the-top. I also love stretched-out single-level ranch HAUSes and historic lofts with large volumes of space.
Q: Where do you live now and why do you love it?
A: My wife and I live in Eastside Costa Mesa and we love it for its eclectic mix of individuals and the spaces they live in. Here, you can have larger parcels with space and yet you’re still only a bike ride to the sand.
Q: What is your favorite neighborhood in your area and why?
A: I love Eastside Costa Mesa, as I said. I also love Irvine Terrace in Corona del Mar for its single-level spreads, College Park in Costa Mesa for its Mid Century flavor, and Dover Shores in Newport Beach for its quiet streets and larger parcels. Also, Cliff Haven in Newport is a great little pocket neighborhood with proximity to everything, yet still tucked away.
