Tracie was amazing to work with. My husband had been in contact with her, via email, in regards to the properties we wanted to look at, prior to us meeting with her in her office. She had previewed most of them and their communities. Once she had a feeling for what we were looking for she showed us the perfect place. Tracie took the time needed for the negotiations. Since Palm Desert was new to us. She told us so much about the area and how close everything would be. We both highly recommend her - D & A Conrad
Ted and I are finally settled into the our new Mid Century Modern home and we're loving it! We would like to thank you again for the exceptional job you did in helping us with the purchase of our home. We interviewed several realtors from the Palm Springs area while we were still living across the country and you definitely stood out in terms of your experience and knowledge of the area especially the Mid-Century neighborhoods. We also wanted to say thanks for the three months that provided us with homes to review and that commitment alone speaks volumes to you being a true professional. We are so happy with the home we purchased and could not imagine living anywhere else. We especially appreciate the dedication and hard work you did for us: negotiating the contract securing an inspection doing errands for us while we were still out of state like helping us with the electrical and taking the time to go over all the details before we moved across country. You always maintained the perfect balance of professionalism good humor patience understanding and diplomacy. You have been a true delight to work with on a personal level as well reassuring us and comforting us through the stressful task of buying a house from afar. Based on our experiences with selling and purchasing several homes before this one you have by far been the best real estate agent that we have ever worked with and we would highly recommend you to anyone looking for a real estate agent. Once again thanks for a job well done! - Chuck Honse & Ted Janka
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 met with Elaine the day after an unsuccessful and frustrating bid on a condo in Palm Springs. She listened carefully to what we were looking for, and, as we were leaving for home in two days, Elaine posted all of our criteria on the MLS properties for sale. Over the next two months, the computer emailed us many properties closely fitting our needs and finally one came up which we and Elaine decided to offer on. After some negotiating back and forth, we got an acceptance and we closed the sale in February, 2008. Elaine then picked the escrow agent and to our great relief and pleasure, agreed to act as a "general contractor" for a fair fee to do renovations on our new home away from home. Elaine is a realtor who gives the buyer professionalism personified, enthusiasm and a determination to get it done that all buyers expect but don't often get.We don't give referrals out lightly but were pleased to do so for her to two fellow Canadians. - Lyle & Randi - Nanaimo, B.C
Rita was an absolute pleasure to work with. She listened to what we wanted in a second home in the Palm Desert area and showed us properties that fit our criteria. We found a great second home. Rita is very knowledgeable about the Palm Springs area, very professional and guided us through the paperwork and closing process skillfully. We highly recommend. - Julie from Gig Harbor
