The Michael Caruso Real Estate Group is family owned and was established  in 1994 by Michael Caruso. We have specialized in and grown along with the many distinguished communities in Orange County. For years we have enjoyed powerful local recognition as "Orange County Real Estate Services”, "Ocean Ranch Realty” and “High Rise Home Sales” all of which remain a viable component and now blend into The Michael Caruso Real Estate Group.  Our new trademark doesn't change the "home town" approach we've brought to the Orange County Real Estate business environment.

Careful planning has placed our newly constructed state of the art Headquarter Office in Irvine, which enables us to serve a much broader area, as we have now grown to unprecedented success among Independent Real Estate Firms. Blending 3 companies into The Michael Caruso Real Estate Group creates multi level marketing power for our Listings. Our mission in combining the strength of our Full Service approach with the latest in Real Estate Technology, is to provide a customer centric Real Estate experience for clients! Our extensive knowledge of Orange County home values, school rankings, entertainment & recreation facilities, dining, shopping and transportation are valuable to the information stream we provide our clients. We are a company of dedicated people...and it is because of these people you can feel confident that all of your Real Estate requirements will be foremost, and handled in a trustworthy, professional and efficient manner. We look forward to serving you!
