Palm Desert, CA, November 25, 2013 — FirstService Residential, California’s nation’s leading property management company, today announces being selected to provide property management services for Painted Hills at JP Ranch. The community consists of 308 master-planned single-family homes in the foothills of Calimesa, California. The company will assume management responsibilities on December 1, 2013.
“Working with Painted Hills at JP Ranch is an exciting time for FirstService Residential and it highlights the bounce back of home sales in the Calimesa area. We are looking forward to our newly formed partnership with Highpointe Communities,” stated Julie Reese, FirstService Residential Regional Director in Palm Desert. “They selected us to represent JP Ranch because of our local footprint and sophisticated service programs. The decline in the market left this community under bank ownership. It was important to Highpoint that we ensure a smooth transition for the existing residents and build a good sense of community.”
Nestled in the panoramic rolling hills of Calimesa, Painted Hills at JP Ranch offers casually elegant indoor living with rustic outdoor inspiration. Surrounded by horse ranches and rolling meadows, the community is minutes from championship golf, premium brand shopping outlets, award winning restaurants, Vegas-style casinos and world renown medical centers.  The community offers a clubhouse, pool and spa, a tot lot, basketball court, BBQ area, fire pit and picnic areas.
