Dear Friends,

Along with the milder temperatures, November always brings the increased activity, anticipation and excitement of the coming holiday season to the Coachella Valley. It also brings an increase in real estate inventory to the market, with more prospective Buyers to consider each listing. 

While the Desert Cities always has an amazing inventory of properties available, the heightened flurry of activity - along with increased numbers of people - makes Autumn a great season for Sellers who are serious about selling, to meet Buyers who are seriously interested in Buying. 

Local statistics show an increase of 33.6% in the number of sales for single family homes, townhomes, and condominiums, closed in the city of Palm Springs, alone, for the month of October 2017 (151), versus the number of closed sales for the same during October 2016 (113). At the same time, the median length of days on market for these units in Palm Springs fell to 46 days, compared to an average length of 48 days, one year ago. The average closing sale price rose from $345,000, in October 2016, to $370,000, in October 2017.

Whether you are looking to buy or sell, I can offer the highest levels in real estate expertise and professionalism. Please contact me, and allow me to help guide you through that process.

The father designed La Plaza, in Palm Springs

Most followers of Palm Springs midcentury modernism will be very familar with E. Stewart Williams - but for fans of period Spanish Revival, local history scholars, and those who study the innovative trends of American culture during the 20th century, it was Harry Williams - who later partnered with his two sons - who created an enduring, and beloved, central downtown landmark.

architecture 101


Mediterranean architecture in North America echoes the haciendas of the Spanish New World with their tile roofs, arches, and plaster made rough to resemble plastered adobe. Ornate homes that combine those design elements are often called Mediterranean (or Neo-Mediterranean) because of the composite features of terraces, courtyards, stucco finishes, porticos, balconies, or any number of traditionally Spanish formal design elements.
