What our Client's & Real Estate's Industry Professionals have to say about the DJL Real Estate Consulting Team

"I have known Dudley and Debra Latham for over 20 years in the real estate industry.  Over the years, I have been involved with them in many transactions.  I can testify to their ethical and professional character regarding their clients and fellow real estate agents.  I highly recommend and refer my personal clients to them for the Coachella Valley area, whether it be for buying or selling property. I trust them completely to provide the highest standard of service regarding the client's best interest.  Complete and straightforward consulting is what you will experience along with the true personal care. It is good for the industry, that they have created the DJL TEAM".  Tracy Manzi-McMonigle Group, #1 Sales Team in America, per Wall Street Journal                      

"We have been searching for houses in California for many years and have dealt with many different Realtors.  In January 2009 we started to work with Debra with DJL Consulting.  In a few months we purchased a beautiful home.  Debra is very compassionate, fair and ethical person.  She is extremely professional and helpful in what she does.  We recommend Debra and DJL to anyone who needs a fair and hard working Realtor 'who gets the job done'.  We truly believe in her and her hard work.  She is now considered by us as a best friend and we can't wait to move to the Palm Springs area and see her often. Thank you Debra."  Sourri and Hans Baetjer, New Jersey

"We engaged DJL in February of 2009 to assist with our La Quinta condominium sale.  Dudley and Debra were very responsive and gave us complete and straightforward information on all facets of a potential sale.  After 2 years of no responses from previous listing brokerages, DJL got us a showing and then a second showing within a week of preparing our new listing.  As expected in today's market, an offer was forthcoming but it was not quite to our liking. Dudley and Debra gave us excellent advice and recommended we keep the property and place it on the rental market. This worked superbly, as they quickly acquired a tenant that we are extremely pleased with, for a long-term lease.  Problem solved!  They have handled most of the details surrounding the lease that we would have found it impossible to deal with.  For our new home, they  recommended a property that we had not considered, based on their review of our very specific needs. To say the least, we fell in love with the house and expect to close on it soon!  Dudley and Debra listened carefully and followed through aggressively on everything we asked of them. Their service was thorough, timely and sharp. We wholeheartedly recommend them for any of your real estate needs."  Gwynn and Tim Demakis, Rockport, MA

"Debra and DJL's Team helped my parents, who live back east in NJ, wtih the purchase of a new home.  I met with Debra on behalf of my parents, because  I live in So. California.  I was impressed and appreciative of all the time and care Debra took to relay information to me and to provide extra support in the 'little things'.. such as sending detailed photos from the final walk-through to my parents back in New Jersey, so that they could experience what was happening from a distance.  I truly believe that Debra and DJL view people 'not as clients', but as extended family members and genuinely cares for them."  Tania Baetjer, Los Angles, CA.

"Kim sold us our house in the same way she sold us our horses.. honestly and fairly.  She says she'd rather walk away from a deal than disappoint us, and we believe her.  When we get ready to sell in the future, we'll use Kim."  Dr. Richard and Joann Foxx, Directors of the Medical and Skin Spa at the Hyatt.  Indian Wells, CA. 

"Kim was very on top of it throughout the entire deal.  Being in the mortgage industry myself, I appreciated that.  She kept me in the loop and has handled several of my resales since our first transaction."      Douglas Smaldino,  Tarzana, CA.

"My wife and I were first time buyers.  We didn't worry because Kim kept us so informed, we hardly had to ask.. she just sent e-mails, made phone calls, and organized inspections and everything else.   Kim made it easy for us."  Mark and Rachel Streelman, Indio, CA.
