"Doug, know that it has been a privilege to work with someone as detail oriented and caring as you. This is a big purchase for us, as you can imagine. Couple that with the fact that we are a frigid and icy 3000 miles away and you can imagine our concerns.  Well, we both felt assured from the outset that we had someone “on the ground” that was taking care of our details. Thanks so much for all of your help. We look forward to seeing you in our new home in the near future."
Mike Ziskind, Washington, D.C.

I represent Buyers and Sellers from Palm Springs to La Quinta, residential and investment.

As an agent who's an expert in this local area, I bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise about buying and selling real estate here. Licensed as a Real Estate Agent in three States, including Washington, Hawaii and California, I have been living and working full time in the Greater Palm Springs area since 2000.

I am eager to serve you. Here are some of the things I can do for you:

Find Your Next Home
Every community and area is different, so you need someone you can trust for up-to-date information and who has broad, valley-wide knowledge.  I can work with you to find the right home at the right price for you, including all the neighborhood amenities that matter. I am an excellent listener and will always put your search criteria and needs above everything else.

Sell a Home
When it's time to sell your property you need someone who has the experience to effectively advertise your home, show to prospective buyers, negotiate the purchase contract, arrange financing, oversee the inspections, handle all necessary paperwork and supervise the closing. I can help handle all aspects of the transaction make it stress free from start to finish.

Consult on Home Selling Tactics
There are a number of successful home selling tactics that can make the difference when it comes to a quick sale at top dollar. Staging the home, making repairs or minor improvements, or even simply painting the walls can be the difference between a home resting on the market and one that's sold fast.

Income Property Investments
I have helped buyers and sellers with residential income, multifamily, apartments and commercial real estate for over fifteen years.  For Buyers I am very comfortable with and excel at finding the best property, evaluating the financial data, comparing properties and negotiating a sale that brings my clients the best return and results.  For Sellers, I excel at determining market value, assessing property characteristics to enhance income and reduce expenses and negotiate an offer that brings my clients the satisfaction of knowing they sold at the best time and value with the help of a true Realtor Professional.  I also have extensive experience with 1031 Tax Deferred Exchanges. 

You can call me anytime, including weekends, on my cell phone, 760-641-8401, or please feel free to email me at .  I am a phone call or email message away.  I take great pride in providing a nearly instant response.
