Rancon’s history in the La Cresta/Tenaja area goes way back to the roots of Rancon Real Estate. In the early 1970’s, Dan Stephenson, Rancon Real Estate founder and owner, had the opportunity to list for sale former Governor Ronald Reagan’s 770 acres he owned in this area. Because of Dan’s love of this area, he purchased approximately 5,000 acres from the large land owner at the time, Kaiser Aetna. He subdivided the acreage to create smaller parcels that Rancon Real estate sold to individual owners.
