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
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 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.
Dear Elaine, We would like to thank you so much for helping us find the perfect home in South Palm Desert (Summit). You and your entire staff helped make the process so much easier with your professionalism and understanding. Teri was so efficient and mindful of our many requirements while working with us (and we had many!). We really appreciated all the hard work and patience. - Victoria K
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. - Larry A., Brandon
