The business of real estate is one of making deals.  Making a deal generally implies that there is more than one person involved.  It naturally follows that communication is imperative.  Then why is it that so many agents do not return a phone call, shoot a quick text, or respond to a short email? Here in the Palm Springs Valley where I work, we have some super Star real estate agents, but we also have a large number of part-time agents, and some REALLY part-time agents.  Part-time or full-time, if you are in the real estate industry, it would seem to me that you would want to make deals!  Even if you don't have much to say, a quick word or message keeps the line of communication open.  Sometimes when I am running like mad, I can't return messages immediately.  But I make it a point to...

Palm Springs CA Short Sale Palm Springs, California real estate has seen some drastic swings in prices, conditions and inventory. First, when the Palm Springs housing crashed in 2007, no one could sell a house. Anyone trying to only chased Palm Springs home buyers with dropping prices. Then came all the Palm Springs CA foreclosures. This attracted many cash buyers and investors. As banks realized that flooding the Palm Springs real estate market with foreclosures drove prices down even further, they began holding on to their Palm Springs foreclosed homes. This brought a new wave to the Palm Springs real estate market: Palm Springs CA Short Sales! The Palm Springs CA Short Sale Yes, Palm Springs California has seen the rise and fall of the short sale, and this type of transaction helped ...

I was reading in the New York Times about how young people are really changing the marketing when it comes to wine.  They're drinking a ton of it and are becoming quite finicky about types and tastes!  My area of California, the resort area of the Palm Springs Valley, has responded with some amazing wine cellars at some of our local haunts.  Here are a few examples. Castelli's Ristorante:  Palm Desert, California.  Sommelier, John Coniff, keeps approx. 1,000 bottles of 240 wine brands in the cellar, mostly reds to go with the Italian cuisine.  The Wine Bar in Old Town La Quinta:  Strictly wine, and some light foods.  Wine tastings and wine education is offered, and flights may be purchased with healthy pours!  Le Vallauris, Palm Springs:  Sommelier, Bruce Barrett has been here for 28 y...

Say Good-Bye to Marilyn Monroe in Palm Springs this Weekend 2 years ago FOREVER MARILYN the sculpture by Seward Johnson was trekked across country to be on display in Palm Springs. The 26 foot sculpture weighs 34,000-pounds cost about $40,000 to transport and $60,000 to clean up and re-install in downtown Palm Springs, CA. It took a week to be trucked across the country.  Since her arrival, tourists and locals have been able to enjoy the enormous statue at Palm Canyon and Tahquitz Canyon Way, Palm Springs, CA. All funds to bring her to Palm Springs “Forever Marilyn” were received from private donations.   The statue portrays the infamous scene from the 1955 film "The Seven Year Itch". If you recall this movie, the scene was where a drafty New York subway grate blows up Marilyn’s skirt w...

We were in Palm Springs, in the California desert, over the weekend for wedding. Visiting with our daughter, son-in-law and the grandkids was a big part of the fun. The house we were staying at had gorgeous views of the mountains from the yard and the house. I spied the moon setting over the mountains late Saturday morning and was able to capture a couple of decent photos. It was pretty dramatic in the deep blue sky. So glad I actually was paying atttention instead of being glued to my iPad.
