As a Canadian (born in Southern Alberta and raised in Edmonton and Vancouver), I understand first hand that if you're a U.S. client from outside of California, a Canadian or other foreign client, the buying, leasing or selling experience may be quite different from what you're used to.

In terms of education and work experience, I attended Queens University in Kingston, Ontario, the University of Alberta in Edmonton (Chemical Engineering and Law degrees) and the University of Tulsa (Law degree).  After school, I worked for roughly 20 years as a lawyer, with such companies as Walt Disney Studios, RIM, Unocal, Kimberly Clark and Amoco, negotiating and documenting deals involving technology, content, and other forms of intellectual property.  I strive to introduce best practices from these positions into my real estate practice

Presently, I work alongside my wife Laurie in HK Lane Real Estate's Palm Desert office.  We're here to help is our motto and it means that we're here to help and guide you through buying, leasing or selling your desert area home....whether it be a full time residence, vacation home, or investment property.  Our goal is to understand your needs and exceed them along each stage of your transaction.

If you're interested in buying, leasing or selling a home, or just interested in learning more about the real estate market in the greater Palm Springs/ Coachella Valley area, please visit our website or contact us.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $600K in Rancho Mirage, CA.

My wife and I found Tim Briggs to be very knowledgeable in the properties available for viewing. He was very patient with us as he walked us through the purchase process. We have purchased a property through Tim Briggs and he was able to help us with several referrals of contractors for painting and handyman service. We have been very satisfied and would highly recommend him.  More Less

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $500K in La Quinta, CA.

Tim quickly showed us that he had all of the skills you would want in someone representing your interests in a real estate purchase. So, what we would like to stress in this review are strengths that we felt were over and above what is standard.

1) We were from out of state and had just listed our home so we were not in a position to make an immediate offer. That did not stop Tim from working with us and spending hour upon hour showing us property.

2) He quickly came to know us and what we would and would not like to see, even as our priorities changed from time to time (or as he may have felt, daily).

3) Tim was especially strong at making offers that were very positive for his clients, but that were also within the realm of being acceptable for starting negotiations with the seller.

4) Once we had an accepted offer and we were not in the area, Tim worked with contractors and others in assessing the inspection issues. He got bids for repairs, met with contractors, and in every way assisted us by doing tasks we were not in a position to easily do. He even noticed a couple of plants in the back yard were not getting enough water and fixed a couple of sprinklers for us.

Tim was both an advocate and a calm head keeping us all on track and moving forward.

Bought a Condo home in 2013 for approximately $475K in Indian Wells, CA.

Tim Briggs & his wife Laurie helped my wife and I find a seasonal home in the Palm Springs area in 2013. As a team and individually we were very impressed with not only their knowledge, but also their integrity. Tim and Laurie spent a lot of time with us touring the local market (which we were not familiar with). There was no pressure to make a decision and their focus was clearly on educating us and meeting our needs. We have bought and sold quite a few properties over the years and this was by far the best experience we've ever had. When it came time to write the offer and deal with the paper work, Tim's professional training was evident and he once again impressed us with his ability and attention to detail. Tim managed all sorts of detail and provided valuable advice for us as absentee purchasers. I would highly recommend Tim (& Laurie) to anyone looking for a high quality realtor in the PSP area.
