We were referred to Elaine by a friend who had recently purchased a home in La Quinta. From our first email last January, to actually meeting Elaine in April, through to purchasing our dream vacation home in August, we found Elaine to be a pleasure to work with. Elaine was professional, dedicated, knowledgeable and most importantly she was committed to helping us find what we were looking for. Once we found it, Elaine ensured that the whole process went smoothly.
Working with Elaine was an absolute pleasure and we would highly recommend her to anyone looking to purchase in the Palm Desert area. -

Cory was right on the ball getting me in to my condo. He was very Responsive whenever I had questions. Very knowledgeable in the real-estate market I highly recommend Cory to represent you in your real-estate needs.
Occasionally in life, you just get lucky. That is how we feel about meeting Elaine Stewart in 2009 after she helped some friends acquire a property in the Coachella Valley. Elaine spent time with us in 2009 and again in 2010 during our intermittent visits to the area at a time when we were interested but undecided about making a purchase. Elaine remained in contact, providing us updates on the market by email, with no certainty that we would actually decide to buy. That speaks to the genuinely helpful way in which Elaine works with her clients. At no time in this process did we feel any pressure from Elaine. In fact, we felt just the opposite -- that she would not be happy unless we were happy. She was very patient with us, she understood that this was new for us and she was the consummate professional throughout the decision making period.
So, in early 2011, when we decided it was time to make a purchase, we let Elaine know that and the rest , as they say, is history. Elaine immediately helped us refine our search parameters, provided much advance information electronically to help us identify target properties and met us promptly upon our arrival in the Palm Springs area -- with an extensive list of properties scheduled for our viewing. She knew just what we wanted and didn't waste our time on properties that did not meet our criteria. At the same time, when we did some research and asked questions about other areas or communities or properties, Elaine was able to readily address these questions. Frankly, she simply knows the real estate market in the Coachella Valley. Elaine listened to us and proceeded accordingly. She gave us personal attention and tailored the viewing schedule to our wishes. We allowed five days to look at properties and were able to relax and enjoy the sun for the last two days!! And - we have never felt for one moment that we missed anything or could have done better. -

I contacted Cory to sell my condo in Palm Springs because I was getting ready to move back to NYC. I was packing and setting myself for the move when suddenly I had to leave Palm Springs and head back to NYC. Cory was there to take care of my unfinished business. I had gain enough Trust in Cory that I felt confident that I left things in good hands. I told Cory to donate some of the furniture I left behind. Instead Cory managed to sell some of it to the buyer of the condo. I found Cory to be very trustworthy professional and dependable. He kept me informed on what was going on and what I needed to do to close on the sale of the condo. The closing went very smoothly. I was very fortunate to have Cory as my real estate agent. -
For a stressful short sale of your home, Elaine Stewart is the realtor to use. She is familiar with the unique issues that arise with a short sale and is aggressive enough to deal with them as they arise. In my case - as is probably common with most short sale cases - one thing went wrong after another. The banks just DO NOT KNOW what they are doing! Regardless, Elaine convinced to me hang in there and her team continued to deal with the banks. I was ready to walk away from my home. Thanks to Elaine, I stuck with the ridiculous process created by the banks and my home sold and closed escrow by the end of the year. Thanks Elaine! -
