Marketing highlight of the week

Tim Smith, leader of Coldwell Banker’s No. 1 team in Newport Beach, California.

He has the distinction of overseeing the recent sale of the highest-priced piece of property in Newport Harbor at $35.008 million. It was first listed for $44.995 million in Oct. 2018.

The amount was slightly higher than the previous record of $35 million for the home of actor Nicolas Cage, which sold in 2008. The agent for the buyer said that her client is a fan of the house’s architect Robert Sinclair.

Smith marketed the five-bedroom, six-bathroom, waterfront mansion at 1813 E. Bay Ave. with the $50,000 “Teach Me How To Duffy” — that went viral.
