Marni Jimenez
Grove Realty
About Marni

For Marni Jimenez, real estate isn’t about commissions; it’s about connection. It’s about helping people to come home. Since moving to Riverside County and getting her license in 1990, Marni has become a top producer who consistently ranks in the highest 1% of local agents. Her success can be attributed to multiple factors — most notably, her hard work, honesty, and reliability. But what truly sets Marni apart from her peers is her lifelong commitment to serving others. At an early age, Marni learned what it would take to be successful in real estate: friendliness, hard work, excellent service, problem-solving skills, and personability. She grew up in Orange County, and although her family didn’t have much, they worked hard and made their own way. Her childhood taught her to take nothing for granted, and she feels an immense appreciation for every family that chooses to work with her. Marni approaches real estate like she approaches everything else — with her whole heart. She genuinely cares about her clients and gives them the same service she’d give a close friend or family member. Due to her impeccable reputation, a significant part of her business comes from repeat and referral customers. When you work with Marni, you can be confident that she’s working with your best interests in mind. Her goal is to make your real estate dreams a reality. Outside of real estate, Marni stays equally engaged with her community. She’s a co-founder of the Titus Mentorship Program and is on the Dean’s Leadership Council at Cal Baptist University. She’s also a long-time usher at her church. As a devoted mother of five and grandmother of six, she loves spending time with her family. She follows a healthy lifestyle by eating well and staying active, and enjoys the beach and RV camping with her husband.

What should you look for when interviewing a real estate agent in Los Angeles County?
When you sell a house, your real estate agent becomes your business partner, financial advisor, and emotional support system. It’s crucial to partner with someone you trust, so make sure you’re looking for an agent who can answer all of your questions with confidence during the interview. During this process, you want to get to know the agent’s business and find out how well they know the area. You’re listening for things that signal experience, expertise in your community, and workload. Selling a home takes an enormous amount of work, so you need an agent who’s got a plan for prep, pricing, and marketing and who is ready to roll up their sleeves to get the job done.

How important is it to hire a top real estate agent in Los Angeles County?
Our data shows that the top 5% of listing agents sell homes for as much as (+9%) more than the average real estate agent. A great agent makes a difference when you buy a house, too: We’ve found that the top 5% of buyer's agents on average save their clients 2.5% more on their home purchase. So, whether you’re in the market to find your dream home or sell your house at a great price, the right agent matters.

Read more
When is the right time to hire a real estate agent in Los Angeles County?
The best window to contact an agent to sell your home is anywhere from three to six months in advance of your list date. When you start the search for an agent several months before hitting the market, there’s plenty of time to find the best agent, make key renovations, and market your home effectively, all of which are essential steps in selling your home for a great price. You can also hire an agent based on the best time to sell to take advantage of seasonal and cyclical trends in the market. The right time to hire a real estate agent depends on the temperature of the housing market. For example, the best time to sell is in May. And since it takes around 3 months to close on a home, you should list in February. We recommend that you hire a real estate agent as soon as you're thinking of selling your home. Generally speaking, that's anywhere from 3 to 6 months prior to your desired move date.
