Creaky elbows and rusty shoulder joints make it difficult for The Big Kahuna Ron McElroy to surf, let alone get through the line-up. Wave after wave pound Ron’s face, but a slight onset of dementia keeps him going. Meanwhile, Juniorboy, sitting on the beach, can’t keep the jokes flowing fast enough, “look braddah, he’s still wearing dah bus up kine rubbah slippas!”

Ron previously established himself as a proficient Commercial Real Estate Broker specializing in office properties throughout the greater John Wayne market from 1983 through 1992. During this period Ron represented landlords like The Irvine Company, Prudential Realty, and Koll Company as well as companies like Exxon, AST Research and Mobil Oil. After a short stint trading oil futures and firearms with Syrian confidants, Ron launched REMC-Real Estate Management Corporation. Over the next fifteen years Ron’s standard for Class A buildings and premier office environments, anchored with uncompromised service, set the industry bar to a new level. Ron successfully sold the fourteen sites encompassing over 1,000 companies to Synergy Workplaces, a Broadway Partners subsidiary based out of New York.

Retired on the beaches of Hawaii and Mexico left Ron “plagued with thoughts of not doing enough,” he says in his book entitled Wrong Side of the Tracks ($12.95 for the book or $2.99 for the Kindle Edition, both on “Street smart and restless,” like most University of California, Santa Barbara graduates, Ron jumped back into the game and established ROC—where he finds joy, yet again, in working 14-hour days and having his employees call him Puanani, or Beautiful Flower.

Operations Manager



Courtney Guthridge grew up in Orange County with her three brothers and parents. She attended Mater Dei High School and left California to attend Southern Methodist University in Dallas. There she studied abroad in Spain and received her bachelors in psychology.

Her biggest passion is traveling. She believes that what you learn while traveling can not be taught. Ms.Guthridge worked as a server in college so that she could spend her summers on backpacking trips. After graduating from SMU she moved to South Korea to teach English for a year. When she finished teaching she, of course, took her earnings and went on a ½ yearlong backpacking trip around South East Asia. Courtney is now back in the United States and enjoys exercising, music, beach, going to the movies, and watching sports, especially the 49ers.

Community Developer



Justin Miller, aka “Mills”, is an Orange County product raised ding dong ditching, stomping the yard, walking the dogs, skating, surfing, and playing soccer. He attended and cruised through Dana Hills High School and chose to further his education with a major in Soccer and a minor in Kinesiology at Westmont College. After a brief stint of playing pro ball with minor league team, LA Blues, he chose to leave the institution that the sport brought. Utilizing his Mexican background, he ventured to Mexico and taught english where he became a true Mexican samurai.

Coming back to civilization was strange and an array of jobs came and went along with odd living situations. Living above a washer/dryer in Denver for six months, living on a boat in Marina Del Rey, half a year living in a construction site in Chinatown of Hawaii, and now back to comfortable OC. Calloused is a good adjective for Mills, one which he will need entering into the world of sales with ROC.
