Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $275K in Indio, CA.

We have never never been to Palm Desert and within two weeks we found the perfect house for us in a great community with the help and guidance of Joan Castro. After listening to our wants and needs she was able to give us many listings in our price range and a good review of the different communities. We then were able to narrow down the different pros and cons of the different communities and listings. She was always available for advice and consultation and the negotiations with the former owners of the house went very smoothly. She was most proffesional and caring a definite pro in the real estate field.  More Less

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $1.225M in Palm Desert, CA.

Joan takes care of everything when you work with her, no hassles or added stress. She is extremely detail orientated and a great negotiator (fair and balanced). We enjoyed working with her and are happy with our end selling result.

Bought a Townhouse home in 2014 for approximately $1.375M in Palm Desert, CA.

We would not have bought our home without Joan's tremendous follow-up. She is an excellent listener, fun to work with and a consummate professional. I highly recommend Joan as your Palm Desert realtor, she will truly help you find exactly what you are looking for & do it in gracious way. I highly recommend Joan and I am thankful for her help in finding our new home. I'd give her 5 stars on negotiation skills too, but I am married to the best negotiator around. Together they really made great things happen!  More Less
