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

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.
