About Our Team

 

Get To Know Us

Baytown Realty has been a fixture in Seal Beach for over 40 years with The Klisanin Team at the helm. Founded in 1980 by Jim Klisanin who was born and raised in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and spent summers working for his father in the construction industry. He attributes his work ethic to the teachings of his father who was a Croatian immigrant and believed in hard work and perseverance. 


Jim happened upon Seal Beach in the mid – 1960’s and bought his first home. Not long after moving to Seal Beach, he began a second career in real estate. Over the 53 years, he has resided in Seal Beach, he has been deeply involved with the community including involvement in the Seal Beach Lion’s Club, coordinating the Seal Beach Christmas Parade, coordinating the PTA Carnival, president of the Chamber of Commerce, coaching little league baseball and softball, donating to city charities/organizations and much more along with investing in real estate. 


Jim’s passion and enthusiasm for the community were passed on to his daughter, Shana. Their combined talents have grown Baytown Realty to be a cornerstone in the Seal Beach real estate market. 


Shana is now head of operations for The Klisanin Team and brings over 30 years of experience in brokerage with extensive experience in real estate finance. Her expertise in negotiation and marketing has created much of the Klisanin team's success. The results speak for themselves. We are looking forward to helping all of our clients achieve their property goals.
