Tracie is a very professional agent. She knows everything about the area and showed buyers what Portola had to offer, plus she knew the surrounding areas and what the comps were. She is dedicated, persistent, honest and kind. She really worked hard for me and I trust her because she was truthful and has integrity. I would highly recommend Tracie to both and buyer and also a seller. She has your best interest always. -
We met with Elaine the day after an unsuccessful and frustrating bid on a condo in Palm Springs. She listened carefully to what we were looking for, and, as we were leaving for home in two days, Elaine posted all of our criteria on the MLS properties for sale.
Over the next two months, the computer emailed us many properties closely fitting our needs and finally one came up which we and Elaine decided to offer on. After some negotiating back and forth, we got an acceptance and we closed the sale in February, 2008.
Elaine then picked the escrow agent and to our great relief and pleasure, agreed to act as a "general contractor" for a fair fee to do renovations on our new home away from home.
Elaine is a realtor who gives the buyer professionalism personified, enthusiasm and a determination to get it done that all buyers expect but don't often get.We don't give referrals out lightly but were pleased to do so for her to two fellow Canadians. -

Tracie was amazing to work with. My husband had been in contact with her, via email, in regards to the properties we wanted to look at, prior to us meeting with her in her office. She had previewed most of them and their communities. Once she had a feeling for what we were looking for she showed us the perfect place. Tracie took the time needed for the negotiations. Since Palm Desert was new to us. She told us so much about the area and how close everything would be. We both highly recommend her -

Elaine Stewart at Remax was a pleasure to work with from the beginning to the end. We got the best of everything from negotiating, to her knowledge of the market, and really knowing the community.
She found our dream home! Anyone looking for an agent should contact Elaine. We give here the highest recommendation. P.S. The staff at Remax is great too! -

I was extremely impressed with Elaine's general knowledge of the various communities surrounded the Palm Springs region, and how quickly she recognized what my priorities were, and their order of importance to me in my decision making process. She really went out of her way to ensure I saw a wide variety of houses, in several communities, in an effort to help me understand the positive and negative influences of each location. There was never any pressure on me to make a buying decision, only a desire on her part, to ensure that the choice I made was based on having as much information as she could supply me.
Elaine's dynamic and friendly personality made me feel welcome, and my comfort/trust level with her was immediate. The selection and buying process was a real pleasure, and once that was completed the support offered by the Re/Max Escrow division, by Errikka and Diane, was outstanding. Being from Canada, and not understanding the local process, I was quite concerned about the final stages of processing the sale such as the home inspection, money transfers, and legal documentation,..it was made very easy and worry free by the Elaine and the Escrow staff.
I can't say enough to express my sincere appreciation to Elaine for finding me the house that met my requirements, at a price I could deal with, in a timeframe of less than one week. And then to have all the worry taken out of the closing and documentation stage by the Escrow division, I would have to call it a perfect buying experience. I would most certainly use her services again, and would recommended her to any members of my family, friends or associates, without hesitation, who may be considering a home purchase in the Palm Springs area. -
