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.
