My clients are people just like you who want an informed, skilled and professional agent who will make the real estate experience a good and lasting one.

While I have a lot of experience selling homes throughout the Coachella Valley, Palm Springs is where I live and where I have the longest association. In fact, my parents introduced me to Palm Springs in 1964 and I've been hooked ever since. If you'd like to know more about our town's history and neighborhoods that make up our famous resort, please read Gary's Neighborhoods Of Palm Springs.

When I started selling real estate in the Coachella Valley in 2004, I had already been in sales for twenty years. I`ve worked for two large companies and several mid-sized firms. While I was with Hallmark Cards from 1987 to 1993, I received their top honor for sales, The R. B. Hall Award. Few Hallmarkers ever receive that award and it was the highlight of my years there. Later I achieved top sales honors at Videojet Technologies, a Chicago based computer hardware manufacturer specializing in advanced printing technologies for the food and manufacturing industries. I was with Videojet for 11 years.

Before all that I had a curiously good time working in the entertainment industry behind the scenes at "The Merv Griffin Show" and "Lifestyles Of The Rich And Famous" (among others). It was a great way to learn about people and most of all, a way to see some of the great houses throughout the world.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $550K in Palm Springs, CA.

Gary met with us on a Monday and we were under contract by Friday (of Thanksgiving week) and closed 4 weeks later. The website he uses is so easy to use and really helped us narrow down and revisit properties we liked. We ended up with a high end, low end and mid -price option. Working through questions with the seller was easy with Gary and his good attitude helped make the process fun.

We are very happy with our home in Palm Springs as well as our choice to use Gary!

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $250K in Palm Springs, CA.

I used Gary's web page as my Palm Springs bible to start then had the pleasure of speaking to him.. Before talking to hime I had spoken with 3 other agents that had dropped the ball. I was moving from Texas and he assisted me with finding my home and making the move to Cali smoothly. I'm so grateful for his hard work, believing in me, listening what I needed and what I was looking for. Now that I live in Palm Springs he also as become one of my dearest friends.  More Less

Showed home in 2012.

I have worked with Gary Lee Smith on a number of properties, and found that he has really good skills at searching the market for the right property, especially since I know what I want. He knows the market and is very willing to work to get the best deal and he knows all the other agents around pretty well, so there can be a good buy-sell deal going on. I'm impressed with him and he stands out.  More Less
