Company Information
The sunny Carmel Valley basks in the Mediterranean climate and stretches 40 miles northwest by southeast from Carmel at Hwy 1 to the Arroyo Seco Road which then leads 16 miles north to Greenfield on Hwy 101. These 40 miles encompass homes, farms, ranches, acreage, shopping centers as well as diverse small business such as cabinet shops, small restaurants, construction companies and software developers. There are homes and estates along the sides of the valley with views of the Ventana Wilderness and the Pacific Ocean as well as homes with Carmel river frontage. The first 12 miles headed southeast from Hwy 1 to the Carmel Valley Village contain most of the Valley’s population of approximately 12,000. Once past the Village you will find more open space, a stronger rural feel and even more beautiful scenery. Weather changes subtly as you head east away from the influence of the ocean. There is less fog and warmer temperatures the farther east you travel into the valley. Normal rainfall is 17-18" per year. We get some frost in the winter, and the leaves do change color here!

The array of choices here will enable you to find your ideal mix of home, land, and neighborhood. The Mid-Valley Shopping Center is located 6 miles from Hwy 1 and contains a Safeway, a pet grooming business, doctors offices as well as a number of restaurants. This being such a great place to live and land being finite, price is the only real constraint, as the home values reflect the desirability of the area. The low end of properties start in the $300,000-$500,000 range and top estate property moves upwards to $7,000,000. Generally, there are a number of very attractive properties on the market selling in the $500,000 to $900,000 range. This area has many of the amenities locals enjoy, such as golf courses, tennis courts, and equestrian centers. The 3500 acre Garland Ranch Park is a favorite place for horse riders to enjoy the day with its miles of trails. Costco, Target, Home Depot, Del Monte Shopping Center Mall and other major shopping venues are conveniently located throughout the Monterey Peninsula and are within a few minutes’ drive of the Carmel Valley.
