Bought a home in 2014 in Cahuilla Hills, Mountain Center, CA 92260.
My wife is a realtor in Vancouver, Canada. When we started looking in Palm Desert last year, we were referred to Barbara Garland-Tate by another Canadian realtor, who had already bought in California. Referrals from experienced realtors often indicate solid expertise, and that was certainly the case here. Barbara was knowledgeable and patient, as we looked at many properties over more than a year. When we found the property we wanted, Barbara's negotiation skills came to the fore, and we were well satisfied with the results. She guided us though the escrow process, which required considerable more negotiation, and even referred us to many good local contacts (pool, yard maintenance, tradespeople for repairs, etc). All in all extremely pleased and will recommend Barbara whenever we get the chance.

Barbara is the most professional and competent realtor we have ever engaged. Without her help, we would never have closed our recent purchase in Indian Wellls. Her knowledge of the market, the process and her dedication to her clients is truly outstanding. We unequivocally recommend Barbara.

Barbara helped my wife and I find a great home in South Palm Desert in 2011.
She was exactly the type of person with whom we like to work. Direct but not pushy, patient, factual and very open discussing both the pros and cons of the various types of homes we considered, gated communities vs. non-gated, specific cities, and many other considerations we debated during our home search.
After placing our offer, we also found her to be extremely professional, efficient and helpful during the negotiation process. Her experience in the industry and local knowledge was a huge asset!

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $175K in Cathedral City, CA.
I was looking to buy a house for under $175,000, which is apparently a very competitive market. We had to go see houses immediately when they came onto the market to have any chance. Barbara emphasized this to me and then practiced what she preached by being available nearly whenever I needed her. Barbara made a difficult process as smooth as possible and was a great advocate on my behalf throughout. Some days I emailed and called her multiple times, and she always made time for me. She was always very responsive to my phone calls and emails and followed up on issues and questions. She was patient, humorous, sweet, and professional. I would highly recommend her.
