We live in Seattle and were in the Palm Springs area looking for a second home. We were referred to Frank Alvarez, real estate agent, by the Seattle office of Redfin. Frank works for Greater Palm Springs Reality, and in the Fall of 2012 was named Palm Springs realtor of the year. Frank worked with us over a number of months to find a property that fit our needs and price range. He was very patient and well organized, with descriptions, listing, and recommendations. Although Frank was very patient and not pushy at all, when we found a property that we were interested in,he went into high gear to make an offer and convince the seller to sell to us, even though other offers were being made on the same property. We appreciate his knowledge and attention he gave us. I would highly recommend Frank Alvarez.

Frank helped us make an offer on a house before the owners even realized their listing was live on the local MLS! Since Frank has worked with many of the local agents before, he was able to show us the house before anyone else. Incredibly friendly and very responsive at all hours of the day, I would recommend Frank to anyone buying a house.

Frank has helped me both in the buying and selling process and has made all of my transactions smooth and easy. He is highly professional yet very personal at the same time. I would highly recommend him for anyone looking to purchase or sell a home in any of the Desert areas!
Frank was very helpful to us and was always there when we had questions and boy, did we have questions. His patience and knowledge are unparalleled in the Realty realm and we are so fortunate to have found him. Through his guidance we were able to purchase a home in an area that had all the attributes we were searching for including perks we never even thought of. Even after the sale we count Frank as someone we can call on anytime. -George and Gia
Sold a home in 2012 in Carefree Mobile Village, Palm Springs, CA 92262.
Frank is a great realtor...he knows PS well and is on top of every detail. He made my sale as easy and "pain free" as possible. And besides that he's just a genuinely nice guy and a pleasure to work with and someone I am glad to call a friend.
Frank was amazing during our buying experience. He always had time for us...no question was left unanswered. He knows this area well and he helped negotiate a deal on our house that we were comfortable with. I never felt pressured to do something that I didn't want to do. As our agent, we felt he was always looking after our best interest.

Frank is fantastic. He is proactive and anticipates the next step in the process. He is very knowledgable and returns calls immediately. He is highly likeable and knows Palm Springs like the back of his hand. I felt very comfortable through the entire process. I would reccomend him to anyone.
Bought a Single Family home in 2010 for approximately $375K in Cathedral City, CA.
If it wasn't for Frank's optimism I probably wouldn't have gotten through the ordeal. He's probably the most knowledgable agent in Palm Springs since he's experienced in both sales and mortgage brokering. Kudos to Frank. I would recommend him without reservation.
Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $600K in Palm Springs, CA.
Of all the agents that I have worked with over the years, Frank has made the purchasing of a house enjoyable and reduced the stress level when making an important purchase. He is knowledgable of properties in the area of Palm Springs and other desert cities and can zero in for the the buyer is looking for. He spends time explaining the process and in my case purchasing a foreclouser. Phone calls and emails were answered within hours if not immediately. His negotiation skills are excellent when working with the other agent when determining price for the property.
