In 2007, Lon decided to spread his wings and form Orangehill Realty. The focus of this brokerage is to service the eastern Inland Empire region including the cities of Redlands, Yucaipa, Calimesa, San Bernardino, Colton, Highland, Mentone, Beaumont, Banning, Moreno Valley, Riverside, Grand Terrace, Oak Glen, Bloomington, Rialto, Fontana, Perris, and Hemet.
Lon saw the need for a brokerage that could serve as an expert for the eastern Inland Empire, which is one of the most dynamic and fast growing in the country. The region also became one of the top REO foreclosure markets in the United States. This inspired Lon to assemble a group of experienced REO, foreclosure, and short sale agents. This group became known as the "REO Team". This team has grown to become one fo the most recognized REO listing offices in the region. The REO Team currently lists properties for 7 banks and8 asset management firms. Lenders have expressed great respect for Orangehill's REO Team as it continues to grow.
Outside of work, Lon enjoys spending time with his wife and their two daughters. Lon & his wife adopted both girls from China and are strong advocates for adoption. The family enjoys the ranch life in Redlands on their 5 acre property. The current animal count is 2 horses, 12 chickens, 2 ducks, 2 rabbits, 2 dogs and 2 cats.
