Having settled on the Palm Springs - Coachella Valley area as the location of our long awaited vacation home, we settled into the daunting task of researching real estate in this distant and foreign market. Knowing the right real estate professional, who would truly listen to our needs and desires, would make the process the least painful, we came across Elaine Stewart. My wife and I quickly felt at ease with her style, professionalism and dedication.
Elaine introduced us to the Coachella Valley and after numerous emails, websites, phone calls and eventually trips to the area, we became familiar and comfortable with the local real estate market. We found the vacation home of our dreams and with Elaine’s assistance, a deal was negotiated. With the deal in place, Elaine continued to assist us in navigating the escrow process.
With the professionalism Elaine showed us thru the real estate purchasing process, we knew we had selected the right person. We would enthusiastically recommend Elaine Stewart to any of our family, friends and acquaintances looking to purchase real estate in the Coachella Valley.
We would be happy to have this note posted to Elaine’s website and would have no obligation if anyone would like to contact us directly regarding our experience.
"We recently started the exciting, and terrifying, process of looking for and purchasing a vacation home in the Coachella Valley. As Canadian Residents, it was even more anxiety ridden as we were unfamiliar with all of the rules, regulations, extensive paperwork and issues that would go along with purchasing a property in another Country.
Despite doing some in depth background work, we were not fully prepared nor did we have the knowledge to complete this process on our own. We were extremely fortunate to have Elaine Stewart as our realtor. Not only did she show us a large variety of properties in our price range, taking several days out of her schedule to do this for us, but she stayed with and assisted us from beginning to end. From initial offer day through to closing, Elaine was there for us as an incredible source of advice and information.
We honestly would not have stuck with it, if it was not for her! Elaine has spent countless hours going through the entire process with us, assisting us in completion of paperwork and providing an invaluable source of other information that new home owners/foreign owners would find difficult locating on their own. We have already advised family and friends that we would highly recommend Elaine Stewart if they were to consider purchasing/selling any property in the Valley.
"As you know we had a GREAT real estate experience with you and would HIGHLY recommend your services to any potential real estate buyer or seller. Your patience, market knowledge and professional service made us, as out of town/country buyers, relaxed and confident with our decision to purchase real estate in the desert. In my view some people sell real estate and some care about the people....Elaine Stewart cared about us, our real estate requirements and we sincerely appreciate all the hard work that she did on our behalf. Five star service from a five star person!"
I had the pleasure during the last two months of dealing with Elaine Stewart, a real estate expert who works throughout the Coachella Valley.
I represented a group of Canadian investors looking to purchase a vacation condominium in Cathedral City, and, like most people who invest in a foreign country, had legitimate concerns about finding the right person for the job.When one purchases property from a long distance away, it is imperative to have someone who is not only extremely knowledgeable, but trustworthy as well.Happily for me, and the investors I represented, we found Elaine Stewart.
Ms. Stewart has not only impressed me with her knowledge and insight regarding the real estate market in California, and in particular the Coachella Valley, but has gone above and beyond the normal scope of her duties to give very helpful advice, and excellent service in assisting us to find the right property, deal with the negotiations for its purchase, and shepherd the escrow process through to its conclusion.In short, she has earned the trust I now repose in her, as well as the gratitude of the investors I represent.
I would, without hesitation, recommend Elaine Stewart to clients, friends, relatives, and anyone who is looking for a consummate professional to deal with a real estate matter in southern California.
I am happy to have this letter posted on Ms. Stewart’s website, as I am pleased to say to any readers of this letter that my experience in dealing with Ms. Stewart was altogether both enjoyable and successful.
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.
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.
"I had the pleasure of working with Elaine Stewart in searching for an investment property in the Coachella Valley. The first thing you notice about Elaine is that she is personable, bright, intelligent, and very attentive to your needs, and the details of the current local/national real estate market. The second, is how smartly and hard she works to get the results you need to attain your goals. I would not hesitate to recommend Elaine to anyone looking for a new home or real estate investment property. She is one of my all-time favorite agents to work with!" October 10, 2007
