“Award Winning” Property Management and Home Sales
In 1873 Esequial Murrieta visited our area and bought 52,000 acres of oak trees, sycamores and natural hot springs with the intention of moving his sheep operation here. He didn’t relocate but his brother did. In 1873 Juan Murrieta herded 1000,000 sheep into the valley. That’s when our community, rich in culture and major growth potential, started.
Murrieta officially became a city in 1991. By 2005, it grew from 24,000 to 85,000 residents. Today, it is over 110,000 making Murrieta the 5th largest city in Riverside County. It is also one of the safest cities in Southern California and boasts some of Southern California’s “best in class” schools. The future of Southern California is being built here.
Nearby are the districts of French Valley and Winchester, adjoining areas of Murrieta, where wide open spaces and rolling hills combine with lush green grasses and fields. This area, a former farming area for many decades and owned by the Auld family, is to be enjoyed week days and weekends. We have a regional airport, a County court house, the Southwest Justice Center and a beautiful Reservoir called Lake Skinner, grown out of this farm land.
I have lived in this area since 2003 and would not live anywhere else. We are an hour from the snowy slopes of Big Bear Ski Resort and an hour away from the beautiful Pacific beaches that line our coast. In just minutes we can be in wine country, enjoy live music and sample locally grown wines. Due to the valley’s “bowl effect” that holds the cool moisture from the coast and the dry air from the desert simultaneously, the Temecula-Murrieta valley has some of the best weather in Southern California. We have a true feeling of community in our towns, also, and pride ourselves on being progressive, able to embrace the new as we stand up for our values. History is all around us in the stories of the stage coach line that came through here. Original roads can be seen in the restored parts of Temecula & Murrieta where time stands still. There is something for everyone in Murrieta, French Valley, Winchester & Temecula.
