L.esri.Geocoding.geocode().text('380 New York St, Redlands, California, 92373').run(function(err, results, response){
L.esri.Geocoding.geocode().address('380 New York St').city('Redlands').region('California').postal(92373).run(function(err, results, response){
//Using .within()
var southWest = L.latLng(37.712, -108.227),
    northEast = L.latLng(41.774, -102.125),
    bounds = L.latLngBounds(southWest, northEast); // Colorado

L.esri.Geocoding.geocode().text("Denver").within(bounds).run(function(err, response){
//Using .nearby()
var denver = L.latLng(37.712, -108.227);

L.esri.Geocoding.geocode().text("Highlands Ranch").nearby(denver, 20000).run(function(err, response){

Results Object

In the examples above the results object will look like this.

      latlng: L.LatLng,
      text: 'Formatted Address',
      score: 100, // certainty ranking of the match
      properties: {
        // additional info like specific address components (Country Code etc.)
