Brokerage Profile
Management Team

Jan and David Pingree were two of the original founding partners of Regency Real Estate in 1994. Regency's founding partners were all very successful, established agents who came together to form a business that would let them be in charge of their own destiny. The winning Regency Real Estate concept was to build an invitation-only brokerage with the most experienced, qualified, and esteemed agents.


As their business continued to grow, Jan and David formed their own Team under the Regency umbrella. Jan and David Pingree and the Pingree Team are very helpful and friendly. Knowledgeable about the Mission Viejo and greater Orange County markets, Jan and David Pingree and the Pingree Team help clients navigate the home buying, selling, and financing process, paying special attention to the needs and circumstances that sets each person apart.

"We have great systems in place to handle every aspect of a home purchase or sale and we have worked hard to make our business run like a finely tuned machine.

"Whether buying, selling or investing, we have the knowledge needed to facilitate the sale or purchase of homes and properties in Orange County. We are sensitive to the fact that one’s home is often the biggest and most important investment they may make in a lifetime, and so we make every effort to see that no detail is overlooked and every aspect of our client’s experience is flawless.
