Meet Adam Moniz

Adam Moniz specializes in representing buyers and sellers of Carmel and Pebble Beach properties and is routinely ranked among Sotheby's International Realty's top 10 agents on the Monterey Peninsula based on annual rankings. By exclusively focusing efforts on a limited few miles of the vibrant central California coast, he provides exceptional local expertise and delivers exceptional results, routinely in short time periods.

Known for targeted marketing within a powerful network he created from scratch, sellers who list their property with Adam immediately benefit from increased exposure and increased access to qualified buying pools. The results speak for themselves, with a significant percentage of Adam's listings consistently selling for above or near list price, usually within two weeks. On the buyer's side, Adam has developed an especially loyal following with buyers from Silicon Valley and Texas. Those who select Adam as their exclusive buyer's agent also benefit from access to discreetly available properties that are not listed publicly.

Actively involved in community affairs, Adam is among the most visible agents on the Monterey Peninsula, and was even selected by the Monterey County Weekly newspaper for inclusion in its 2010 "Portraits of the Year" (portraits that helped define the character of Monterey County).

A testament to the trust the community has in him, Adam came within just a few percentage points of being elected Mayor of Carmel in 2010, in the closest Mayoral election in recent city history. His campaign was backed by several former Carmel Mayors and several former Carmel City Council members.

A leader in numerous local organizations and non-profits, Adam is a past President of the Board of Directors of the Carl Cherry Center for the Arts in Carmel. He also served as a member of the Executive Committee and Board of Trustees of the Friends of Sunset Foundation, a non-profit that supports and raises funds for Carmel's Sunset Community and Cultural Center (known to locals as the Sunset Center), a popular performing arts venue located on San Carlos Street and Ninth Avenue in Carmel.

Adam first stepped foot in Carmel and Pebble Beach after winning tickets to the U.S. Open in 2000. After developing and refining his skills with White & Case LLP in New York City and Patton Boggs LLP in Washington, DC, he moved to Carmel-by-the-Sea permanently while in his mid-30s. The rest, as they say, is history.

"Adam Moniz has built one of the strongest and most recognizable brands on the Monterey Peninsula," remarked Janet Reilly, Brokerage Manager and Vice President of Sotheby's International Realty. "Combined with Sotheby's International Realty and its global reach, these two powerful brands deliver unparalleled resources and results."

Sotheby's International Realty is a leading luxury real estate firm selling exquisite homes in premier locations since 1976. Formerly The Mitchell Group, Sotheby's International Realty maintains three offices on the Monterey Peninsula. Adam is based out of the brokerage's office on Ocean Avenue in downtown Carmel-by-the-Sea and is one of its top producing agents by dollar volume. In addition to having routinely earned a place in the top 2.5% of all sales associates nationwide in the NRT family of over 40,000 agents, Adam has also closed one of the top 30 sales in the entire Sotheby's International Realty network, earning his first spot on the brokerage's worldwide Significant Sales list in March 2012.

Adam enjoys solving problems and creating opportunities. Leverage his local knowledge, experience, and efficiency to buy or sell your Carmel or Pebble Beach property.
