About the Skenderian Group

Marcus is dedicated to making your Laguna Beach real estate dreams a reality. As a licensed real estate broker since 2005, Marcus has represented over 325 clients and has established himself as the choice for real estate representation in Laguna Beach.
A Laguna Beach family since 1968, the Skenderians have been personally and professionally vested in Laguna Beach for nearly 50 years. Marcus grew up in the real estate business at the family’s kitchen table. As the son of Morris Skenderian, one of Laguna Beach’s most renowned architects, Marcus developed a deep appreciation for architecture and its relationship to the community, and has an overall understanding of construction and the development process. This experience led Marcus to a career in construction before his career as a real estate broker. Equally important was the influence of his mother Carolyn Skenderian, a wellrespected agent in Laguna Beach for over 35 years. Carolyn taught him the business of real estate and the art of negotiating while emphasizing the importance of putting the needs of clients above everything else.
With so many REALTORS to choose from, Marcus stands alone when it comes to firsthand real estate experience in Laguna Beach. His in-depth knowledge and hands-on experience in architecture, construction, development, and real estate make Marcus much more than a real estate agent. His thorough understanding of the industry, extensive work experience, and resulting relationships and resources are invaluable tools that give Marcus’ clients a distinct advantage.
Along with his wife Tammy, another Laguna Beach native, Marcus continues to live fully ingrained in the community while raising their three children. As a past Vice-President and Director of the Laguna Board of REALTORS®, and as a past President of SchoolPower, Marcus has maintained an unwavering presence in the local community. A recipient of the prestigious LBOR REALTOR of the Year® Award, Marcus is recognized by his peers as one of the most well-respected real estate agents who best represents the organization through giving back to the community while demonstrating an exceptional level of professional service.
