Del Cerro Real Estate
Del Cerro was started in the mid-1950s when religious discrimination in La Jolla was the impetus for the development of a Jewish community in this area. Located in the eastern part of San Diego, Del Cerro neighbors the communities of San Carlos, Allied Gardens, College Area, Grantville Lake Murray and the city of La Mesa. There is also a Navajo Indian community here that takes part in yearly events and festivities.
