About Neal Johnson

We are an active family of 5. Melinda is a realtor and broker and Neal is a real estate appraiser. We own an Orange County based real estate brokerage called Freedom First Properties. Melinda loves hiking in the local hills and mountains and Neal enjoys playing tennis. As a family we love to vacation (who doesn't?) and road trips are one of our favorites! This pic is of us eating local crab @ Kelly's Marina in Nehalem Bay, Or.

Neal Johnson purchased this condo in 2013

Why Neal Johnson chose California Desert

We wanted to pick a home that would be perfect when we retire (someday....) but would serve our family well while the kids were still young and active. We wanted a community that offered many quality amenities (golf, tennis, gym, clubhouse) and found all of them in guard gated Desert Falls Country Club. We didn't want stairs or steps and wanted a view--so we were fairly picky when trying to find the right vacation (and future retirement) home...but we knew it when we saw it...this was 'the' one!

What makes this condo unique

Amenities! Golf, tennis, spa, pool, guard gated, 2 car garage, indoor laundry, wifi...view of golf course and mountains...walk in closets...and then we added high end furniture and furnishings to ensure the luxury vacation feel!

A Perfect Month!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this lovely condo the entire month of January and we couldn’t have asked for a more perfect experience. Everything we wanted or needed was provided in the condo along with wonderful views of snow-capped mountains. Neal, the owner, was very responsive from initial contact to departure. The online photos are a true representation of the apartment – spacious, tastefully furnished and well maintained. Desert Falls is a lovely country club with a well-equipped gym and tennis courts available to guests at no charge. Tennis lessons are available at very reasonable rates. The swimming pool is less than a minute from the condo. The location is central to shopping, sightseeing, hiking and other activities. And just near the patio, there is a very productive lemon tree which was a special daily treat for us. All in all, it was everything we could have wanted. Thank you, Neal!

Our Daughter's Wedding at Desert Falls

  • 5 of 5

The condo unit that served as "base camp" was more than expected!! The size and amenities were perfect for us and our friends and family. The outside patio was the best and got plenty of use!! This along with being right next door to our family who also own/live there the location could not have been better. The unit is very well appointed and maintained. The only suggestion is the tile in the master bath shower could use some updating but other than that, the unit is exceptional!!! The wedding venue was the club house and golf course, which was perfect, great weather and great presentation by Ivan and the staff. We will plan on using the unit again for family gatherings in Palm Desert. Cudo's to Neal for providing the unit and the information we needed!!

Spacious 3br & nicely decorated with helpful owner

  • 5 of 5

This condo was pleasant & spacious & had everything we needed. The master was large & it was nice to have the third bedroom with twin bunk beds. The decorating was nice, we parked in the garage and the owner was very responsive when we had questions. Also good: laundry room, large gym in the clubhouse, 2 nearby pools, security, netflix, views, manicured grounds. Could use work: kitchen cupboards-old but functional. We would definitely stay again.

Great Place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this place during our first family getaway with 2 of our kids. This place is safe, secure and very close to the restaurants. Quite Clean and Well equipped with everything we needed. Owner made it very easy to get in and out in a timely fashion. Kids enjoyed the walk around the lake and golf course. We will stay here again when we come back to Palm springs..

Great week in Palm Desert!

  • 5 of 5

My family of five really enjoyed our week at this home. It is quite large. Plenty of space for everyone to spread out. Pool is a one-minute walk from the back door. The home had everything we needed for the week. The owner was very responsive and proactive. I would definitely stay there again.

Enjoy a meal at the country club and then head out for a round of golf on the 18 hole course (golf extra) or play some tennis if you prefer (included!). Walking distance to grocery story, places to eat and minutes away from shopping--from outlets to HIGH end rodeo drive quality shops (The Shops at El Paseo)..or both! Fantastic location while you stay in this guard gated, well kept community. The home is steps away from one of the community pools and spas...Palm Desert Cert of TOT #13-00038006
