We have been coming to the Palm Springs area for several years and have been interested in purchasing property when the opportunity presented itself. Being from out of state we knew no one who could guide us or give us good recommendations about areas prices values to say nothing of the process of buying a home. My wife did a lot of the initial leg work and became knowledgeable of the area market and we went to open houses and continued to look for a property that would meet our needs and at the same time be a good value. At that time we were fortunate to meet Cory Alan who has been an absolute Godsend for us. Being from the Midwest we had one way we were used to when it came to buying a home and then having it financed. We quickly learned that doing things in California was a whole lot different. Without CoryÕs help we would have never been able to finally purchase the home we have been looking for these past several years. First of all CoryÕs demeanor is one of calm professionalism and his reassuring manner has made it a lot easier for me to see this process through to completion. He is very knowledgeable of the overall market and works with clients to find the home that is right for them. He never tries to interject his bias into the process and is tireless in his effort to be sure his customers are happy with their purchase. More than that Cory knows the process of procurement from start to finish. He makes sure that every aspect of the process is transparent and deals with his clients up front and makes sure you are aware of every aspect of the home you are buying the good and the potential bad. Finally once you commit to the purchase he works tirelessly with everybody involved in the process to bring the closing process to completions as soon as possible and to his clientÕs satisfaction. I can say definitively without Cory and his tenacity we would never have been able to successfully complete our purchase. We owe everything to his willingness to see this process through for us. He is not only a great Realtor but in the process has become a great friend. My wife and I would highly recommend Cory to anyone who not only wants to buy or sell their home but who wants to actually enjoy the process. We hope to be in this area for many years and without question will use Cory for our next transaction. - Dan H. Evans
I had the pleasure during the last two months of dealing with Elaine Stewart, a real estate expert who works throughout the Coachella Valley. I represented a group of Canadian investors looking to purchase a vacation condominium in Cathedral City, and, like most people who invest in a foreign country, had legitimate concerns about finding the right person for the job. When one purchases property from a long distance away, it is imperative to have someone who is not only extremely knowledgeable, but trustworthy as well. Happily for me, and the investors I represented, we found Elaine Stewart. Ms. Stewart has not only impressed me with her knowledge and insight regarding the real estate market in California, and in particular the Coachella Valley, but has gone above and beyond the normal scope of her duties to give very helpful advice, and excellent service in assisting us to find the right property, deal with the negotiations for its purchase, and shepherd the escrow process through to its conclusion. In short, she has earned the trust I now repose in her, as well as the gratitude of the investors I represent. I would, without hesitation, recommend Elaine Stewart to clients, friends, relatives, and anyone who is looking for a consummate professional to deal with a real estate matter in southern California. I am happy to have this letter posted on Ms. Stewart's website, as I am pleased to say to any readers of this letter that my experience in dealing with Ms. Stewart was altogether both enjoyable and successful. - Delwen Stander
We recently enjoyed the services of Elaine Stewart and her Remax team, and wish to add this entirely unsolicited testimonial. Elaine is warm, personable, and highly knowledgeable about real estate in the desert cities. We spent hours with her in a search for an attractive and affordable winter home, and saw a number of possible places. We can report that the hours spent on scrutinizing MLS listings from afar were only partly helpful; the time we spent with Elaine was the key. She was especially helpful as we prepared our offer, and in the period of back-and-forth negotiation with the previous owner. New owners will face a variety of issues and puzzles before and just after they take possession. This may be particularly true of those, like us, from Canada. Elaine was a great source of information about painters, tilers, cleaners, condo insurance, and many other services. It seems to us that she knows everyone from Indio to North Palm Springs and, without exception, her recommendations proved accurate and most satisfactory to us. We can recommend Elaine Stewart without reservation - Allan and Clara Robbins, Victoria, BC
Elaine was very helpful to us for our home purchase in the desert. She knew the inventory of properties very well and was able to adjust when our needs changed. She was always very quick to respond to our calls and emails. We are very happy with our purchase, because of Elaine. - Doug & Cheryl G.
We were referred to Elaine by a friend who had recently purchased a home in La Quinta. From our first email last January, to actually meeting Elaine in April, through to purchasing our dream vacation home in August, we found Elaine to be a pleasure to work with. Elaine was professional, dedicated, knowledgeable and most importantly she was committed to helping us find what we were looking for. Once we found it, Elaine ensured that the whole process went smoothly. Working with Elaine was an absolute pleasure and we would highly recommend her to anyone looking to purchase in the Palm Desert area. - Rod and Debbie - Victoria, B.C
