The population was 47,796 at the 2010 census, up from 46,837 at the 2000 census.

Azusa and Glendora are to the north, the unincorporated community of Charter Oak to the northeast, San Dimas to the east, the unincorporated areas of Ramona and Via Verde, and the city of Pomona to the southeast.
With over 40% of today’s listings being short sales, there are more homeowners now than ever before who need our guidance and assistance. However, short sale transactions do take time and persistence in order to be negotiated effectively. Some agents prefer to negotiate their own short sales with the lender(s), but the fact is that most agents simply do not have the time, let alone the desire to sit on the phone, day after day, waiting for the bank to respond. Most agents prefer to be out in the field earning more business, rather than being tied down in the office with paperwork and phone calls.
