Mission Viejo City and Mountains in Winter

Award-Winning Master Plan

Mission Viejo has held a place of esteem since its inception in the 1970s, and has seen tremendous growth in population and housing needs in recent years. As home to some of the most sought after public schools in Southern California, homeowners enjoy meticulous planning and high standards in this hillside community.

Originally planned by Donald Bren, the present day chairman of the Irvine Company, Mission Viejo was a master planned community from its beginning, and is one of the largest ever developed. Almost all housing follows a Spanish style architecture, with some outlying neighborhoods that follow more of a 1970s contemporary style. These homes in Mission Viejo are interwoven through the hills, and often offer stunning vistas overlooking the valley and man-made lakes. While there are condominiums and townhouses available, the majority of houses in Mission Viejo are single family residences. Homes closest to Mission Viejo High School are amongst the most heavily sought after. This high-performing school is famous for having turned out strong academics and athletes since its founding. Most people living in Mission Viejo rarely move, making acquiring property in these neighborhoods particularly exclusive.

A few popular neighborhoods in Mission Viejo include:

  • Califia
  • Quail Run
  • Rancho Mission Viejo
  • La Mancha
  • Pacific Hills
  • Reston
  • Las Flores

Mission Viejo homeowners get more than just high performing schools when they move to the area. Mission Viejo is home to The Shops at Mission Viejo, an upper class shopping plaza that features luxury brands and family entertainment. In addition to this are multiple parks, such as the Florence Joyner Olympiad Park, Tijeras Canyon, Pinecrest Park, and the Jeronimo Open Space Park. Multiple golf courses are nestled between the hills, and sequestered hiking trails run alongside the canyons.
