Take a tour around Monterey Hills with Karen Jones.

“I moved to Monterey Hills more than 25 years ago and it turned into one of the best decisions I’ve ever made, ” says Karen Jones | Residential Specialist.

Not a lot is known about Monterey Hills.  It’s a beautiful hilltop community in between Highland Park & El Sereno just a few miles north of DTLA.

If you were to ask people if they know about Monterey Hills they’ll likely think you’re referring to Monterey Park which is east of Alhambra. Residents of this small community enjoy flying under the radar.

What makes Monterey Hills special?

  • Quiet….there’s no mini-malls or businesses in our area
  • Community-based….helping one another when needed
  • Mostly professional people both active & retired
  • A beautiful park open for picnicking, playing with children or dogs
  • Neighbors walk a lot on the “hill” and try to stay in shape by exercising
  • Pride of ownership
  • An active ASNC Group that works with the city governments
  • A close relationship to law enforcement in order to keep Monterey Hills safe
  • Local grocery stores like Fresco at the bottom of the hill
  • Residents feel safe on the Hill

As a single woman, Karen has always felt safe here. Monterey Hills has a roving Security Patrol service that ensures residents can call for help at any time.  If they come home late at night and want an escort to the door, they are available.

Although Monterey Hills has grown over the years Karen has been there, they still have a “small-town feel”….The homeowners know one another and watch out for one another.  This doesn’t always happen in neighborhoods, but it happens on our “Hill”.

“I wouldn’t want to live anywhere else – we’re close to downtown, Highland Park, Pasadena & Glendale.  We have a golf course and tennis courts close by in the Arroyo Park area.  We have great restaurants and shopping within minutes.  We are surrounded by the beauty of gorgeous trees that bloom each spring with bright purple Jacarandas and Cherry blossom trees,” says Karen Jones | Residential Specialist.

Residents and prospective homebuyers love that Monterey Hills continues to be such a desirable place to live. It’s no secret the owners and renters like being a small, community-based and friendly environment not seen in much bigger, “louder” areas.
