About The Califanos

The Califano name is, without a doubt, a staple in the San Pedro community. Still, it surprises many to learn that the family’s roots go all the way back to the turn of the last century. It makes sense then that local business owners and siblings, Peter, Guy and Julie Califano can’t walk down the street without hearing a warm ‘Hello’ from a familiar face.

Realizing Dreams

“With dreams of a better life, my grandfather journeyed from his home in Ischia, Italy, to the California coast,” says Peter. That bold move opened the door to opportunity and laid the foundation for the Califano legacy of success.

You might say having a dream and the determination to achieve it runs in the Califano family. “From a young age our father, Tony Califano dreamed of owning a business,” explains Guy. In 1955, this dream became a reality when he opened the doors of Califano Realty.



Upholding an Impeccable Reputation

For more than two decades, Peter, Guy and Julie have proudly furthered the family legacy of success by helping countless area residents achieve their real estate dreams. Each is committed to upholding the Califano reputation by doing their part. Julie’s unique ability to see a home’s potential serves as a decisive advantage with buyers, while Guy’s powerful marketing strategies ensure sellers get the optimum price for their home. When you add Peter’s keen insights into local market trends and unsurpassed expertise, it’s clear why they’re the team to trust in San Pedro real estate.


You’d be hard pressed to find one professional, let alone three, who knows the business and the community like Peter, Guy and Julie. Having literally grown up in real estate, there isn’t a challenge they haven’t faced and been able to overcome. In fact, they each vividly recall helping out around the office as youngsters. While those are some of their fondest childhood memories, the lessons in hard work, integrity and dedication proved to be invaluable. These lessons are the backbone of Califano Realty.
