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.

Matt Whitcomb
Pacific Sotheby's International Realty
About Matt

Matt Whitcomb brings a wealth of experience, market knowledge, and a commitment to superior service that achieves results for his clients. He attributes much of his success to the belief that every client, at every price point, deserves a full-service luxury real estate experience. Matt is a true Southern Gentleman raised on the principles of authenticity, courtesy, and respect for others. After graduating from Virginia Tech in 1999 with a double major in Marketing and Business, Matt packed his car and pioneered West to pursue his dreams. Just two weeks later he was hired as part of Universal Studios Recreation Group's Interactive Marketing team. At Universal, Matt was responsible for coordinating with both internal and external creative agencies to ensure projects remained on brand and on schedule. He also served as the key cross-divisional liaison on multiple synergy teams, co-branded promotions (Jurassic Park 3), and global technology implementation task forces. In 2005, Matt returned to Virginia to help reinvent his family's regional DISH Network business. It was during this time that Matt and his wife purchased their first home. Unfortunately, the representation they received as first-time buyers left them feeling lost and overwhelmed. It was this experience and the ultimate sale of the house that sparked Matt to commit the rest of his professional career to real estate sales. In 2013 Matt returned to California and launched his real estate career to fuse his business, marketing, and construction background with his passion for real estate. Matt prides himself on helping his clients realize their dreams and navigate necessary life changes with integrity and an authentic commitment to their success. He believes every home has a story to tell and develops well-organized and creative marketing strategies that reach a targeted audience to achieve his clients' goals and exceed their expectations. His analytic knowledge of the dynamic Orange County real estate market combined with an understanding of home construction and desire to provide support and guidance through every step of the transaction ensures Matt finds his buyers their perfect home in a neighborhood that matches their lifestyle. By aligning with Pacific Sotheby's International Realty, Matt offers his clients the unrivaled reach and innovate marketing tools provided by the world's most trusted global real estate brand and guided by leadership that understands the local market. Matt lives in South Orange County with his wife and two children and enjoys the area's diverse population, vibrant culture, and the incredible variety of outdoor activities. He is a strong community advocate and volunteers his time with great organizations such as the Tony Hawk Foundation and Cub Scouts.

Eric Tomlinson
Corcoran Global Living
About Eric

Hello and welcome to my biography section. My name is Eric Tomlinson. I specialize in working with home buyers and home sellers wanting to get the very best investment for themselves and their family. Many of my clients are Marine Corps families who are looking for a great investment as well as the perfect place to raise their young families. I know the ins and outs of VA financing very well and can often get my clients their first choice of home as well as negotiating closing costs to be paid on their behalf…even in this competitive market. I work by referral. Over the last 17+ years my clients have become my friends and family. I celebrate your successes, like graduations, new additions to your family, promotions, birthdays, etc. My family has often had Marines who have had family overseas celebrate Thanksgiving with us so they were not alone during the Holiday. I love what I do because I know I am helping people, honestly and effectively. That is evident by the number of people who call us back after having worked with us. I have clients who call back after having purchased with us to then sell their home for top dollar in the time frame they are wanting to move. Knowing my clients and the market is my specialty. I would love to help you as well. Call me and let me know how I can help. Respectfully, Eric Tomlinson

Frequently Asked Questions

What does a top real estate agent do?

Read more
What should you look for when interviewing a real estate agent in Riverside?
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.
Read more
How important is it to hire a top real estate agent in Riverside?
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. We encourage you to connect with a top real estate agent if you’re buying or selling a home in Riverside, CA.
Read more
When is the right time to hire a real estate agent in Riverside?
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 in Riverside 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 in Riverside 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.
