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.

Zach Harris
Harcourts Prime Propeties
About Zach

Top Agent Zach Harris – of Harcourts Prime Properties – is a dedicated real estate professional who has built a sturdy reputation as a knowledgeable, hardworking agent who always puts his clients’ best interests front and center. Working primarily in California’s scenic, other-worldly-looking desert communities of Joshua Tree, Yucca Valley and 29 Palms, high in the mountains above Palm Springs, I have been helping many buyers and sellers achieve their real estate goals since 2004. Though I may specialize in the aforementioned high-desert communities, I have sold hundreds of homes all over Southern California, aided by my expert and thorough approach to marketing. Professional photography, drone videos and virtual tours ensure that each listing is presented in its best light, and deft utilization of the internet and multiple social media platforms place my clients listings in front of as many potential buyers as possible. I am a listing specialist with marketing techniques to get your property in front the the right Buyer. When I am not working, I love nothing more than spending time with my wife and our 3 children. I love helping others move on to new chapters in life, and to end old ones. I wake up in the mornings energetic, ready to start my day, and giving all glory to God, because I enjoy what I do for a living.

Denise Munoz
Diamond Real Estate Group Inc
About Denise

I offer a lower-than-average commission rate and 40% off your title charges. I have Over 22 years' experience selling real estate. 100% satisfaction or cancel at any time. I have a great team to insure a smooth transaction.... I will always be your direct contact with anything you need! You hired me to do the job not my assistant. I love what I do and work 24/7. My goal is to have you as a client now and as a future client. I know that your success is my success. Selling or buying a home is one of the most important transactions in the lives of many people. As a local professional, I know the neighborhoods, schools, market conditions, zoning regulations and local economy. Things you can do to make your home more presentable. Improve your landscaping. Curb appeal is crucial to a good first impression, so make sure your home’s lawn is immaculate. Mow the lawn, prune the bushes, weed the garden and plant flowers. Clean the outside. A sloppy exterior will make buyers think you’ve slacked off on interior maintenance as well. Be sure to clean the gutters and pressure wash your home’s siding. Make repairs. In a buyer’s market, you want your home to be in the best condition possible. Take care of major defects like broken windows or a leaky roof that could discourage buyers. Make the front door inviting. A fresh coat of paint, especially in a color that contrasts with the home, will make the front door stand out. Replace faded house numbers so buyers can see them from the curb. Buy a new welcome mat. Let buyers know they’re invited into your home. Remove clutter and depersonalize. Buyers want to envision their belongings in your home. Clean up by renting a storage unit for knickknacks, photos, extra furniture and other personal items. Organize closets and drawers. Messy closets give the appearance that your home doesn’t have enough storage space. Make every surface shine. From ceiling fans to floors and everything in between, clean your home until it sparkles. Take color down a notch. You might like your lime-green bedroom, but it may sour buyers. Paint your walls a neutral color that will appeal to a wide range of buyers. Eliminate bad odors. Hide the litter box and spray air neutralizer throughout your home. When showing the home, fill it with inviting smells by putting out fresh flowers and baking a batch of cookies.

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

What does a top real estate agent do?

What should you look for when interviewing a real estate agent in Riverside 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.
Read more
How important is it to hire a top real estate agent in Riverside 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. 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 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.
Read more
What is the average real estate agent commission for agents in Riverside County?
While individual real estate agent commissions do vary, most real estate agents work for 6% of the home price.
