We have looked for a winter residence in the Coachella Valley for several years and knew exactly what we wanted; south facing, no cart path near us, no slice zone for golf balls, water on the course in front of us, wide or double fairway, mountain view and in one of the clubs we preferred. We first met Elaine several years ago during our search (discovered her over the internet). She listened to what we were looking for and when we came down to the Valley she met us and showed us quite a number of properties at both ends or our price range but we didn’t find that perfect fit. She gave us an honest assessment of the marketplace and did not push us in any way. We waited.
Elaine kept in touch and during April of this year she called and said she felt the market was right for us now and may have the perfect place based on our wish list. We looked at several possibilities and narrowed our search down UNTIL she showed us the one she thought could be perfect for us. Elaine was right. We have now closed on our wonderful new home at the Citrus Club in La Quinta and are very excited about it.
From the very beginning and all through the process to closing, Elaine’s service to us has been superb. We were picky—she was precise. We wanted to take enough time to make sure we found just the right place—she was patient. We knew what we wanted—she found it.
We sincerely give Elaine Stewart our highest recommendation. She is a pleasure to work with. -

Cory was right on the ball getting me in to my condo. He was very Responsive whenever I had questions. Very knowledgeable in the real-estate market I highly recommend Cory to represent you in your real-estate needs.
For a stressful short sale of your home, Elaine Stewart is the realtor to use. She is familiar with the unique issues that arise with a short sale and is aggressive enough to deal with them as they arise. In my case - as is probably common with most short sale cases - one thing went wrong after another. The banks just DO NOT KNOW what they are doing! Regardless, Elaine convinced to me hang in there and her team continued to deal with the banks. I was ready to walk away from my home. Thanks to Elaine, I stuck with the ridiculous process created by the banks and my home sold and closed escrow by the end of the year. Thanks Elaine! -

Make a list of every positive attribute you want in a real estate agent, and then paste Tracie's picture on top. And if you didn't add patience, sense of humor, and sympathy, please add those to the top of your list. I wish we could clone her and put one of her in every realty in the country. -
I was extremely impressed with Elaine's general knowledge of the various communities surrounded the Palm Springs region, and how quickly she recognized what my priorities were, and their order of importance to me in my decision making process. She really went out of her way to ensure I saw a wide variety of houses, in several communities, in an effort to help me understand the positive and negative influences of each location. There was never any pressure on me to make a buying decision, only a desire on her part, to ensure that the choice I made was based on having as much information as she could supply me.
Elaine's dynamic and friendly personality made me feel welcome, and my comfort/trust level with her was immediate. The selection and buying process was a real pleasure, and once that was completed the support offered by the Re/Max Escrow division, by Errikka and Diane, was outstanding. Being from Canada, and not understanding the local process, I was quite concerned about the final stages of processing the sale such as the home inspection, money transfers, and legal documentation,..it was made very easy and worry free by the Elaine and the Escrow staff.
I can't say enough to express my sincere appreciation to Elaine for finding me the house that met my requirements, at a price I could deal with, in a timeframe of less than one week. And then to have all the worry taken out of the closing and documentation stage by the Escrow division, I would have to call it a perfect buying experience. I would most certainly use her services again, and would recommended her to any members of my family, friends or associates, without hesitation, who may be considering a home purchase in the Palm Springs area. -
