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 Palm 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!

Great location. Clean and spacious

Very nice rehab of kitchen and living area. Well equipped kitchen. Full baths need a makeover. Shower in master very slippery for People in their late 70s. Other than that we enjoyed our stay.

8 day stay

  • 5 of 5

There was a bit of confusion when we first got here because our name got lost at the security gate, but it was straightened up within 20 minutes. The accommodations were lovely and everything we needed was right here. Visitors are asked to only leave 2 loads of laundry but I think the family that stayed prior to us left more than that so when we arrived there was stuff in the washer and dryer, so I finished what needed to be done and when the guy who owns the cleaning business found out he brought us a bottle of wine for our trouble. Very professional all around

The condo was in excellent condition and had everything we needed for our stay.

  • 5 of 5

Neal was great at communicating exactly what we needed to get into the condo and to enjoy our stay. He responded to my emails immediately and answered any questions that I had. The property is in excellent condition and the kitchen was stunning. The pool was easily accessed just out the back door and the fitness centre was equipped with everything you need for a great workout. The property grounds were well maintained and looked after. We had a fabulous time and truly enjoyed our stay and will be back!

Fabulous property with attentive owners!

  • 5 of 5

Although too brief, we had a fantastic time at this desert retreat. The home was well appointed and furnished beautifully. The owners paid attention to all the details and we had everything we could possibly need for our stay. The home has a great store right across from the main gate.

Thank you for a wonderfully relaxing weekend!!!!

Wonderful family weekend even in 115 degree heat!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time. Neal was so easy to get ahold of before, during, and after our stay. The place was up to date and had big rooms and comfortable beds. We came in a major heatwave in June where it was 115 degree temperature and the AC was wonderful. We were more than comfortable sleeping and kept cool throughout our entire day. I was highly impressed by this.

The front bunk bed room had three beds. One twin sized top bed, a double sized bottom bed, and then a twin pull out. Four children could easily fit in this room and there's even more room on the floor for two more kids to sleep in sleeping bags if you really needed. The closets in both the other two bedrooms were huge walk ins and would suffice for a smaller child to sleep in if needed. We had our 2 year old camp out comfortable on the floor on the master closet just to have her closer to us. The back bedroom was tucked away from the master bedroom and front kids room. It was perfect for my sister who stayed with us. A nice, quiet room for her to stay in away from the noise of the family. The appliances and kitchen was all up to date and the place was nicely decorated. Thank you for a wonderful stay.
