As one of the top Coldwell Banker Global Luxury real estate agents of Huntington Beach, Scot Campbell understands the oceanic allure of Orange County. A haven for undercover millionaires, beach bums and water sports fanatics, this charming coastal community invites its residents to revel in a laid back lifestyle. With over 32 years of real estate brokerage experience and several locally philanthropic endeavors, Campbell offers a unique outlook on the beautiful properties across the OC market.
From vintage estates dating back 115 years to highly customized new homes, Campbell has sold thousands of homes within Huntington Beach and the North Coastal Orange County communities including Sunset Beach, Seal Beach and West Newport Beach.
Campbell is recognized as an industry leader on the OC, commonly tapped by buyers and sellers alike for emerging market trends. Campbell gives a few examples:
- “Baby-Boomers are selling big two-story homes and purchasing single story homes in nice neighborhoods. They often pay cash and transfer their low property taxes using Prop 19.”
- “Retired homeowners with plentiful equity are selling to follow their grown children and grandchildren out of state. Many young people are moving to Texas, Arizona, Tennessee, Idaho, Colorado and Florida.”
- “Investors are exchanging rentals for single family homes that their grown children can rent from them, thereby reducing property management headaches and improving housing conditions for their grandkids.”
- "Equity (profit) rich homeowners and real estate inverstors are turning to Structured Installment Sales to reduce (sometimes nearly eliminating) capital gains taxes."
"Over-the-water sunsets, harbor and golf courses are a very enjoyable part of selling my market,” says Campbell. He additionally appreciates representing homes in the community that feature quality construction, beautiful architecture and unique features like hi-tech gadgets. These luxurious details are in high demand from Campbell’s devoted clientele.
“Residents of my markets tend to be very successful individuals who at the same time like to live a water sport rich lifestyle including surfing, kiteboarding, fishing, boating, bike riding and just general relaxation at the beach,” he emphasizes.
Owning a house “On-the-Sand” is a dream for buyers of all ages and backgrounds, Campbell states. He currently represents a Sunset Beach custom-built, contemporary home on the oceanfront listed at $9.5 million. Sweeping whitewater views are enjoyed from all three levels of this 6 bedroom, 8 bath property.
Campbell emphasizes 16351 S Pacific Ave as an affordable opportunity for those aspiring to live on the oceanfront in Southern California; he notes the average market price of similar homes in different beach communities are much higher. From a lower level ‘beach room’ and spacious deck for outdoor dining to a gourmet kitchen and three-car parking garage (rare to find in beach homes), this modern masterpiece is prime for the utmost leisure and entertainment of multiple families simultaneously.

To stay engaged and active with his clients and the community, each month Campbell produces a custom real estate magazine that includes detailed market trends as well as his active, in escrow and recently sold listings. About 20,000 doors in the best neighborhoods of Huntington Beach regularly receive his publication. “Residents appreciate the market information while buyers and sellers enjoy learning about my recent listing activity,” he explains.
When he’s not representing stunning beachside properties, Campbell and his wife, Heather, are active in several local philanthropic organizations such as the Huntington Harbour Philharmonic (Boat Parade) Waymakers Youth Shelter, McKenna Claire Foundation for pediatric brain cancer research, hosting a “Free Pumpkin Patch at the Beach” benefiting the Huntington Beach Education Foundation, and the Boys & Girls Club.
