Simeon and Dana PROPHET grew up
in the San Gabriel Valley. They met in Junior
high school and were casual acquaintances through high school with many mutual
friends. They reconnected later in life
at one of their high school reunions and have been together ever since. The timing was perfect; in that they each
were divorced and had already raised their children. Dana has two daughters, Beth Whaley of
Temecula and Kelly Dietz of Tahoe City, both of whom graduated from Big Bear
High. Simeon has two daughters, Lisa and
Gina, and one son, Steven, all from Southern California.
While Dana was a previous resident of Big Bear Valley,
beginning in the early 1970’s, the Prophets history with the community, dates
back over twenty-five years when Dana invited Simeon to go Snow Skiing and
introduce him to the mountain-life. Dana
and Simeon moved to Big Bear Lake as full-time residents in the 1990’s. Simeon continued a successful career in the
clothing industry, manufacturing coats and jackets throughout Southern
California. Dana began immersing herself
in the real estate business of the Valley, where she quickly became a
successful top producing real estate agent.
Simeon soon joined Dana in the real estate business, when his lifelong
family business of manufacturing was no longer a viable option in this country;
everything went off-shore so Simeon closed down his operations here in the
After investing in a couple of different local businesses,
Simeon decided to commit himself to the new family business of real estate. Now, after fifteen years, the Prophets enjoy
working together as a team ,in the valley’s real estate world, They are the
proud owners of the Re/Max franchise here in Big Bear Valley, with three offices
one recently acquired the Coldwell Banker building, across the Big Bear Boulevard
from CVS Pharmacy. Re/Max has more than
fifty realtors working under the Prophets leadership.
Today, Simeon, a long-time Rotarian and Dana, who has been a
frequent volunteer with various community groups, are huge supporters of
numerous local charities and causes through-out the Big Bear Valley. They are also avid hikers, golfers and
skiers; so they have first-hand experience in truly enjoying the outdoor activities
that Big Bear Valley has to offer.
Prophets’ true joy is in giving back and assisting others in achieving
their goals and dreams.
