Wanted to write you a quick note on our relationship with Cory Alan in finding our recent home. We just relocated from San Jose CA to Indian Wells. My family is a total of five with my wife and I and three small children (all under 6). Overall a very significant process/move.
My wife came into contact with Cory from one of the online listing sites. She submitted an inquiry online to get some help. Note prior to moving we have been coming down here for 10 years. All visits though have been exclusively in the PS area. We were not familiar with the areaÕs we were considering and needed help.
From day one Cory has been phenomenal. He responded to SarahÕs online request came within 5 min and included custom listings within 1 hr. From there he never put us aside for one minute. By far the most responsive real estate agent I have ever come across. He was very thorough in every visit home intel and area insight. In short the best real estate agent I have ever worked with.
I hope he is considered one of your top agents. If not for home sales then at least in customer experience. If heÕs not a top grossing agent I can only guess it's due to his relatively short time situated in the area and is still building up a client base. Hopefully he is handed a referrals on a regular basis. He represents your business at the highest level. He will definitely receive referrals from us.
In closing I hope this feedback is appreciated. I myself run a company (Digital Marketing) and see the highest value in employeeÕs who have instinct traits like Cory. I also almost never write any referrals or feedback related to good customer experiences. CoryÕs success with us is really what got me to sit down and pen this out. You have my approval to share this as you see fit.
I welcome any feedback or questions you might have.
I'm delighted to have an opportunity to speak highly of and to recommend Elaine Stewart. She recently acted as my agent in a complex transaction which was characterized by her magnanimity while she also genuinely recognized the positive to some circumstances we encountered. Elaine's intelligence, boundless energy and desire to validate all parties' concerns is a characteristic matched only by her sense of humor and 'can do' spirit.
I believe myself to be well qualified to call an impartial review of Elaine's performance due to my own managerial career in a highly demanding and public career. I present with an MBA with undergraduate studies in liberal arts and so I'm always aware of communication skills and especially in the business environment. She utilized usage of paraphrasing, to engage me in verbalizing the very thing we were doing all in the effort to ensure my comprehension of the process.
Elaine brings that certain intangible to business without which makes real estate deals unnecessarily complicated and difficult to understand. I will never forget her warmth and her acumen… she is amazing. Elaine will always be held in my highest esteem and gratitude. -
We recently enjoyed the services of Elaine Stewart and her Remax team, and wish to add this entirely unsolicited testimonial.
Elaine is warm, personable, and highly knowledgeable about real estate in the desert cities. We spent hours with her in a search for an attractive and affordable winter home, and saw a number of possible places. We can report that the hours spent on scrutinizing MLS listings from afar were only partly helpful; the time we spent with Elaine was the key. She was especially helpful as we prepared our offer, and in the period of back-and-forth negotiation with the previous owner.
New owners will face a variety of issues and puzzles before and just after they take possession. This may be particularly true of those, like us, from Canada. Elaine was a great source of information about painters, tilers, cleaners, condo insurance, and many other services. It seems to us that she knows everyone from Indio to North Palm Springs and, without exception, her recommendations proved accurate and most satisfactory to us.
We can recommend Elaine Stewart without reservation -

I wanted to take this time to let you know how wonderful your Palm Springs/Riverside agent, Elaine Stewart , has been to me over the past two months. Her knowledge, perseverance and positive attitude has helped me recently land a great secondary home in Palm Springs at Catalina Grove. Her quick wit and pleasant charm helped me remain calm and rest assured that all would be okay. Elaine was always available 24/7 to answer the many questions I had and still continues to do so.
Thanks for letting me share this with you. -

As a 1st-time home buyer in the US Anja and I both were totally unprepared for the rigors of searching viewing and deciding on a house and Cory really understood our wants and needs as a family. He not only heard what we were looking for he LISTENED! As our search narrowed Cory truly picked up on what we as a family wanted and guided us right to our dream house! But more than just finding us a home Cory continued and stayed right with us really going all out as we were shuffling thru the myriad of documents faxes emails and the like from various agencies. We really couldn't have done better with any other agent--I've talked to my office associates about Cory's actions and they also tell me we were lucky to get him. Cory Alan is more than a real estate agent he's a wonderful man who we still keep in touch with as our family settles into our new life in our new home.
Thanks so much Cory! -
