Urban and Suburban Excellence
Master planned by the Irvine Company, Irvine real estate is amongst the most methodical and valuable of California property. With a rich cultural diversity between residents, high performing schools, and rigorous standards for all homes and business, Irvine continues to create value for homeowners and investors.
Irvine was originally a part of the Irvine Ranch, and was built into its current form when development in the 60s and 70s created a burgeoning community. Much of the original homes in Irvine were designed with families in mind, and well known communities like Turtle Rock, University Park, and Walnut began to take shape. Since then, everything from large hillside estates to towering glass walled condominiums have become a part of the landscape. Homeowners in Irvine enjoy every possible floor plan to suit their lifestyle. Many homes in Irvine incorporate a Mediterranean or European style, with many new developments offering fresh housing with custom options. Home values in Irvine have continued to increase over time.
A few popular neighborhoods in Irvine include:
- University Park
- Cypress Village
- Shady Canyon
- Quail Hill
- Turtle Rock

Irvine is an inland portion of Orange County, but has unrivalled access to the coastal cities and canyons on the southern border. Getting to both Laguna Beach and Newport Beach is easy, allowing homeowners to enjoy the benefits of large lots and newer homes while staying in close proximity to all the best vistas of Southern California. Shopping centers like The Spectrum and The District provide contemporary urban centers that encourage people to not just shop but to lounge and enjoy. Several parks and ecological preserves like the Great Park, San Joaquin Marsh & Wildlife Sanctuary, and Quail Hill Open Preserve ensure there’s plenty of views of the surrounding mountains, hilltop panoramas, and native California flora for families and visitors to see.
