Doug Skoro knows all about the powerful allure of California's coastal communities. "I can't think of a better place in the world to live," he says. With a lifelong passion for style, architecture and building, Doug helps his clients realize their dreams-dreams that are not so different from his own. Born and raised in Newport Beach in a family of home builders and designers, Doug attended Corona del Mar High School and graduated from the University of San Diego with a degree in Political Science and Philosophy. After graduation, he spent ten years in the music entertainment business living in Beverly Hills, working with artists, managers, agents and attorneys as a record label exec and music publishing exec. During that time, Doug established strong working relationships with some of the world's most prominent entertainment executives and artists. Turning his attention and creativity to real estate, Doug launched an award-winning career, representing clients in the affluent communities of Los Angeles and Orange County. "I live and own income-producing property on Balboa Island," Doug says. "My clients are my neighbors, my friends and my associates from the music business. They know they can rely on my discretion, my ability to handle unique requests and my knowledge of Newport Beach, Los Angeles and the coastal lifestyle." Doug's fascination with the ocean has turned him into an avid scuba diver. A certified rescue diver and master diver, he has traveled the world, exploring some of the most beautiful and pristine waters on the planet.
