Managing Broker Cord McQueen has a rich history in Sales and Real Estate. His leadership style founded in genuine service with integrity has served well in running his own restaurants, a newspaper and now Newbury Park's largest real estate brokerage. His mother Erica was also a successful Realtor and for years McQueen worked as a team w/wife Mary in single and multi-unit residential sales earning top sales & service awards w/Gold Star Realty in the San Fernando and Conejo Valleys.
McQueen & Associates was born from referrals by a loyal residential & investor client base originally in West Los Angeles from their Beverly Hills office. Through early “housing bubble” years, the McQueen’s helped many investors buy rental properties and/or “flip” homes in addition to selling “dream homes” all over Los Angeles through Ventura and beyond. The Gold Coast has been a life-time home for the McQueen’s and their three children Caden, Preston (twins, 18) & Lauren (16).
With a degree in Communications from the University of California at Santa Barbara, McQueen has a track record of building successful sales teams w/Ritz Carlton Hotels, Chrysler Automotive and Marcus & Millichap Commercial’s Multi-Residential Division. He holds multiple certifications, is a member of the California & National Association of Realtors and two MLS Boards including the Conejo Simi Moorpark Association of Realtors. McQueen also assists the firm’s relocation director experienced w/clients from Amgen, Intuit, Baxter, PetCo and others.
McQueen’s personable style involves heavy involvement and support in the local community. He volunteers for the Conejo Valley Open Space Assoc., Parks & Recreation and coaches kids on academic (Odyssey of the Mind) and sports teams (basketball & soccer). He also supports a number of local schools and causes including Habitat for Humanity, the Manna Food Bank and Toys for Tots. McQueen also has done community projects with the YMCA, Boys & Girls Clubs of America and a county leadership committee. McQueen & Associates also has a continuing partnership with Easter Seals Southern California to provide housing for people with disabilities and are active with Calvary Community Church.
McQueen’s varied experience in commercial and residential real estate has helped McQueen & Associates become one of the Conejo Valley's most productive residential brokerages. Our Buyer’s Specialists focus on negotiating the best value while protecting clients.

“We have worked hard to preserve area property values in all market conditions,” McQueen said. “We have the highest recent resale comps in a number of local tracts and have a philosophy and marketing plan notably different than most of our competition. That difference means our service regularly exceeds seller expectations resulting in a home that sells for more in less time!”
