The Coldwell Banker Town & Country office in Covina is in the heart of historic Citrus Valley, that part of the San Gabriel Valley where late 19th and early 20th Century ranchers grew the oranges and lemons for which the area was famous. Covina services the San Fernando and San Gabriel Valleys, San Bernardino and Riverside Counties as well as Central and West Los Angeles.
Covina, California, traces its roots back to 1882 when Joseph Swift Phillips founded the town, and it was officially incorporated in 1901. The name 'Covina' comes from the Spanish word 'cove' and the Latin word 'vina', translating to 'cove of vines,' indicating the rich agricultural history of the region. Covina was primarily an orange and grapefruit producer for many years, known as the smallest city in the country with its own streetcar, connecting it with other Los Angeles areas. Over time, Covina grew from a sleepy farming community into a thriving suburban locale with a diverse population, while managing to maintain elements of its unique historical charm.
