Areas of Expertise

Our Coldwell Banker office is located in the heart Big Bear Lake, California and is ideally located to serve and market to all of the other cities in the Big Bear Valley. Centrally located in Southern California, and surrounded by National Forest, the Big Bear Lakearea is only a couple of hours away from all the major Southern California counties.


Big Bear Property ownership offers four seasons of fun. In winter and spring you can enjoy Big Bear Valley’s great snow skiing and boarding at Bear Mountain and Snow Summit ski resorts. In summer and fall there is fishing, boating and water skiing in Big Bear Lake. There is also mountain biking, hiking, golfing, horseback riding, and many other scheduled events. Additionally, you’ll find great shopping, dining, and of course, relaxing…which is big part of what owning Big Bear Real Estate is all about! All in all, Big Bear Lake is a fantastic place to own a home for full time living or vacation use.


The fact is that the real estate market is booming in Big Bear Lake. And the prices of Big Bear homes and land that are currently being marketed by The Tim Wood Group are still very affordable. For investors that have given up on buying real estate “down the hill”, Big Bear Real Estate is still a great investment opportunity. Quality Big Bear Properties can still be found at prices far below those that are found in the majority of Southern California’s real estate markets. As with most markets, you’ll find that our prices will vary depending on what location you want to buy your Big Bear Property in. Big Bear lakefront homes and estates are of course more expensive than a quaint cabin in some of the other areas of Big Bear, but you’ll find all the areas offer their own unique investment opportunities. If you plan to buy a second home in the Big Bear Lake area, then you may even want to consider a home that is suitable for a vacation rental program.


Another unique aspect of the Big Bear Lake market is the availability of raw land. Unlike the real estate market down the hill, you’ll find that vacant land is readily available as an investment option. Whether you’re buying land as an investment itself; buying it for the purpose of building a home on speculation, or building the custom home of your dreams, the Big Bear Real Estate market is ripe with opportunities. The experts at The Tim Wood Group are the area specialists in raw land subdivisions. And having developed a large portion of the Big Bear area, we can help you with every aspect of this process including the names of quality builders in the Big Bear Lake area.


At The Tim Wood Group, our goal is to demonstrate that professionalism truly exists in the real estate industry, and our commitment is to prove this with every Big Bear Real Estate transaction we complete.
