My name is Chris Mangiapane. Don’t worry if you mess up the pronunciation–everyone does. In Italian, “mangia” means “eat” and “pane” means “bread,” so I’m okay with you calling me Chris EatBread.

Also in Italian, “vivi bene” means “live well.” It’s something my dad used to say–“vivi bene, ama molto, ridi spesso” (live well, love much, laugh often)–and it’s become somewhat of a life philosophy. I live in south Orange County because it’s a great place to practice that philosophy.

This is my wife, Kim, and I with our "first born," Vinny.

I grew up in Laguna Niguel and Dana Point, and saw no reason to stray far from those roots. My wife and I now live in Capo Beach with our cats and dogs. As I’ve fallen more in love with the area, I’ve grown interested in spreading that love to other people. That’s what brought me to real estate.

I know buying or selling a home can be exciting, emotional, challenging, and stressful. My goal as your agent is to make each and every real estate transaction a positive and enjoyable experience. What makes me different from every other realtor? Well, I have only 1 client at a time. No exceptions. I want to be sure I’m available for your phone calls and your emails. I want to dedicate my time and effort to giving your home purchase or sale all the attention it needs.

In my spare time, I’m a soccer coach in our local AYSO league and I’ve volunteered at the local animal shelter. I’m also an avid hiker so when I’m not in the office, you can find me on the trails of our local mountain ranges (here and here are favorites).
