We recently started the exciting, and terrifying, process of looking for and purchasing a vacation home in the Coachella Valley. As Canadian Residents, it was even more anxiety ridden as we were unfamiliar with all of the rules, regulations, extensive paperwork and issues that would go along with purchasing a property in another Country. Despite doing some in depth background work, we were not fully prepared nor did we have the knowledge to complete this process on our own. We were extremely fortunate to have Elaine Stewart as our realtor. Not only did she show us a large variety of properties in our price range, taking several days out of her schedule to do this for us, but she stayed with and assisted us from beginning to end. From initial offer day through to closing, Elaine was there for us as an incredible source of advice and information. We honestly would not have stuck with it, if it was not for her! Elaine has spent countless hours going through the entire process with us, assisting us in completion of paperwork and providing an invaluable source of other information that new home owners/foreign owners would find difficult locating on their own. We have already advised family and friends that we would highly recommend Elaine Stewart if they were to consider purchasing/selling any property in the Valley. - John and Tina D
Elaine helped us with the purchase of a vacation property in Palm Desert. As non-resident buyers, there was a lot we didn't know about buying real estate in the US. When we started looking, Elaine immediately put us at ease with her deep knowledge of the market and her professionalism. She took us to what we wanted to see and also exposed us to other viable options, always with our wish list and budget in mind. We were guided successfully through the escrow process by Elaine's assistant, who tirelessly acted as our eyes, ears and legs as we live a fair distance from Palm Desert. We cannot imagine having made this purchase with any other real estate team. - Tanya K., Calgary, AB Canada
We found Elaine and her staff of Cari and Sergio to be very pleasant, prompt and committed to helping us find exactly what we were looking for in our vacation home. We appreciated that they always responded quickly to all correspondence and provided us with an abundance of information. We would highly recommend Elaine to anyone looking to purchase property. - Brent and Kathy W.

It was a bit of fate and good fortune for us when our realtor needed a short-term notice stand-in for himself on a day we were to tour several homes in the desert cities. Not only did we find our new home that day we came to appreciate just how valuable he would become to us in our negotiations based on CoryÕs diligent research and the subsequent purchase and closing on the home. Cory is a consummate professional. HeÕs extremely knowledgeable organized and efficient. I can easily imagine that with the amount of detail that goes in to buying or selling California real estate not having someone of CoryÕs conscientious and meticulous attention to ongoing matters deals would easily fail and expenses would needlessly rise. HeÕs a get-it-done person: smart productive completely trustworthy and so very nice on top of all that! We mean it when we say that we will never again buy or sell a home without CoryÕs involvement. - Molly Ravenscraft
