It was an unlikely combination- two worlds apart. The Australian with real outback experiences-then the Yukon and Alaska. A man’s man, his life reads like an adventure novel, his stories are true and riveting! She, a New Yorker-artistic, educated, focused, cosmopolitan. Sounds like a movie script, but this is the real thing …the lives of Lee and Russ Jacobs.

They met in Manhattan Beach, California and their adventures together began. A honeymoon that took them around the world. Exotic places with thrilling lifetime experiences that continues today. Encouraging their enormous circle of friends to join them they charter sailboats in the Greek Isles, bungee jump in New Zealand, dine in the vineyards of Napa and dive on the Great Barrier Reef, Lee and Russ have a passion for life that exists in everything they do.

No matter where they are in the world they profess “ there is no better place to call home than Orange County”. Together they strive to make every day exciting. Simple joys of walking one of their guide dog puppies in training or riding their horses as volunteers in the Cleveland National Forest, they bring their hearts and souls back into the community.

Of course, those who know Lee and Russ will tell you they are a perfect balance. Lee is creative, a big picture person with a “can do” attitude and a strong business background.

Russ has a calm and friendly nature that helped him excel as an independent business owner and mortgage broker. The guy who everybody likes, serene and accommodating.

Those who know Russ respect him and are proud to call him “mate”. It’s no wonder that Lee and Russ have chosen real estate as their profession.
