Dear Friends,

Season's Greetings from Palm Springs!

It's an exciting time of the year with season kicking into high gear. Great local events like the Palm Springs Parade of Lights bring festive holiday cheer, Hollywood glamour will descend up on the Valley as the 28th Annual Palm Springs International Film Festival kicks off as 2017 begins, and architecture lovers only have a few more days before tickets for the 2017 Modernism Week events go on sale.

I hope the holiday season and New Year finds you in good spirits and enjoying time with your family and friends. If I can be of service, please let me know.

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.
