Alvin was very helpful as we searched the palm springs area for a vacation condo, he has a great deal of local knowledge. When we decided to make an offer on a place in Cathedral City he did a great job negotiating the price and guided us through the purchase smoothly. I would recommend Alvin to anyone looking for real estate in the area.
Alvin is a true professional in every sense of the word! After trying to sell my property for over one year with another Realtor, I did some homework and made the switch to Alvin. His response time was amazing. After only a few weeks, our property was in escrow. I would highly recommend Alvin for all your real estate needs!
Alvin is a dedicated professional and puts his client's interests first. His ability to be flexible and not follow a real estate "script" is one of his best attributes.
My wife and I needed this type of assistance as we were new to the Coachella Valley with certain preconceptions. Alvin educated us but at the same time did not try to pressure us into a quick purchase.
On one offer we made, the seller pulled out after 2 weeks after acceptance. Alvin moved quickly to settle that issue and immediately provided us with new market opportunities. We really appreciated his quick response and the hours he put in.
We hit success with the right house and furnishings in Sun City Palm Desert and Alvin and his support team helped get us to closing very efficiently.
Alvin was the right choice for us- professional, dedicated, and, we found a friend.
Alvin was great to work with, he worked with us over email for months, once we had narrowed it down to 5 homes we flew in to PS and met with Alvin, he showed us those 5, and more, we were able to pick one we liked and Alvin guided us through the whole buying process.
We love our new home Thanks you

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $2.875M in Rancho Mirage, CA.
We were very happy with the professional service we received from Claudine. We have been visiting the desert for many years, and when we decided it was time to buy, we were referred to her by another Canadian couple who had purchased a property in Rancho Mirage. Claudine was quick to reply to our calls from Canada & continued to communicate via email while we made the trip to Palm Springs. Once we arrived, she had several properties arranged for us to see and spent the entire week with us to ensure we looked at all possibilities that were in our budget and covered our wish list. The process was exciting and fun because we had so much confidence in Claudine's ability to deal with other realtors, sellers & escrow (a process much different from that in Canada). She continues to follow up & we know she is genuinely interested in making sure we are still happy with our purchase - which of course, we are!
Sold a Condo home in 2012 for approximately $125K in Palm Desert, CA.
I maved to Palm Desert, Ca. from Washington state. Claudine went out of her way, Not only did she help me buy a great condo, she also helped me rent an apartment, showed me various points of interest, helped me to get my car Ca plates, showed me the way to get my smog test! I truley did not expect this type of service from my real estate agent. Claudine is truley one of a kind! I would reccomend her to anyone buying a place here in the Palm Desert area.
Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $175K in Palm Desert, CA.
Claudine provided excellent service and was a pleasure to work with. She quickly was able to size up our needs and wants and found us the perfect condo in a very short time. She correctly advised us on market conditions and was able to negotiate the deal with confidence and persistence. Claudine was especially good to us as Canadians, new to the US/ California market. She was patient and made it easy to understand all of the steps through the negotiations and escrow. She also providing advice on utilities, insurance, taxes and aftermarket services such as a concierge service to look after the property in our absence. Claudine never pressured us but kept us on track and ultimately provided sound reliable service and advice. To this day she is quick to respond to my emails and goes above and beyond to help.
Bought a Condo home in 2012 for approximately $300K in Palm Desert, CA.
We emailed Claudine based on the on-line reviews and You-Tube videos. We were delighted to get a call back from her partner Alvin within hours. We spent the next day with Alvin looking at properties, and met Claudine that afternoon. They quickly got a good sense of our needs, personality, etc., and within a few weeks we were in escrow on our Palm Valley Condo.
We could not be happier. We have done six real estate transactions over the years. This one was by far the most pleasant and trouble-free. We enjoyed working with both Claudine and Alvin and have already mentioned them to others. We will recommend them without reservation to anyone looking for property in this area.
