Seeing the Garner Valley area just outside Idyllwild, Ca. for the first time is a breathtaking experience. Following the Pines to Palms highway 74, one is struck by the magnificent beauty and serenity of this place. Quite a far cry from the Orange County / Los Angeles lifestyle. Yet it is only about 45 minutes from the Rancho Mirage and Palm Springs area. Such a find!
Mountain Center and the Garner Valley was where the first episode of Bonanza was filmed! Who can forget the four famous actors riding toward the camera in the opening scene? The famous Ponderosa ranch!
It just so happens that the movie "Wild", starring Reese Witherspoon, showcased the Pacific Crest Trail. The Pacific Crest Trail passes right through the Garner Valley and the homeowners can either hike, or ride their horses on it. How far can they go? Well the Pacific Crest Trail stretches from Canada to Mexico!
So where is this magnificent place you ask? Well think of a perfect triangle! It is exactly 95 miles from Orange County California, which is exactly 95 miles to San Diego, which is exactly 95 miles to Mountain Center. Mountain Center is in the San Jacinto Mountains at an elevation of approximately 4500' hovering above the Palm Springs area which means Mountain Center has four seasons. A beautiful Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter!
Almost all of the Garner Valley Estates are Equestrian related and are plus or minus five acres. The horse trails are well taken care of. A strong sense of community exists between all homeowners. The fire department with a full paramedic staff exists literally blocks away. Cal Trans operations which keep the beautiful Pines to Palms highway in tip top shape is also literally blocks away. Especially during the winter months with snow removal.
Mountain Center and the Garner Valley Ranch Estates has it all.
Erica made big promises and delivered even bigger! She is more than a listing agent, she is a highly proactive Marketer with an artists's sense for how to sell homes most effectively. We talked to three top realtors for our neighborhood. In a nutshell, Erica's strategic view of how to market a house to get top dollar in the shortest possible time simply made sense. Erica said she could sell our house within two week for top dollar. With a very compelling and well-articulated marketing plan, the choice was easy. We put 100% of our faith in Erica and followed her lead in doing all the things she said were necessary to maximize our sale price. To say we were well-rewarded is an understatement. We listed on the MLS on a Thursday, received numerous offers during our open house that weekend, and were in escrow by Monday...just four days after listing on the MLS. We received multiple offers above our list price and ultimately sold for a price 12% higher than the maximum price other agents said was possible. The detailed preparation, unparalleled photography, and artistic staging by such a keen eye made all the difference. If she accepts your listing, I promise you will not be disappointed!

To anyone who is looking for a great real estate agent, this is the women who knows her business inside and out. She will help you find the right house and not try to sell you a house. If you are trying to sell your house, she is great at staging homes, and sells homes for top dollar quickly. I’ve had numerous homes with Eric in selling and purchasing.
Erica is a great realtor. She helps you get your house ready to sell and sells it fast! She has a very good eye for what your home should look like for her clients. She sold our home in three hours at an open house. I would recommend erica to sell your house she is great.
I would like to respond to the recently posted negative reviews here. I know this particular property because I helped Erica get this property ready for sale. Erica was very concerned about keeping the homeowners costs to a minimum. When we felt the original coffee table was too large for the room, she did not hesitate to run home and bring in some of her own lovely pieces to better showcase the living space. Erica herself spent more than 4 hours picking up, rearranging, decorating… then that has always been my experience with Erica. Concern for people is paramount. She displays empathy and kindness to all, and most of all goes above and beyond the norm, to ensure successful sale and satisfied clients. Her properties typically sell quickly and for over market value. She was among the top Prudential agents for 2014. I can without any doubt highly recommend Erica Jeong.
Erica Jeong is a professional Realtor of the highest caliber. I would not trust my next real estate transaction to anyone else. I have attended some of her innovative open houses and I am always impressed with how she stages a home to enhance its value and appeal. She has top people available that can help with financing as well as perform outstanding renovations to truly make a purchase or a sale as easy as possible. She is dedicated to satisfaction at every level. That is why she is one of the top people in the business. Erica has my highest recommendation.
Erica Jeong is the best realtor I have worked with in 25 years. She is very intelligent and professional realtor. She sold my house in 10 days when the market is very slow. She is very hard working and sweet person. I love you Erica !!
