As out of state buyers it was critical that we find an agent that clearly understood what we were looking for in a home and who could deliver meaningful options when we flew-in for property visits. Elaine was extraordinary. Her integrity, attention to detail, preparedness, responsiveness, and insight allowed us to find a home and close within 30 days. Her understanding and ability to manage every stage and process of the purchase made for a very positive experience. We could not have asked for a better agent or individual to help us decide on a home and just as importantly make it happen
“We really did our due diligence before choosing Elaine to help sell our home in Rancho Mirage. We interviewed MANY local realtors before we found Elaine. One of her personal traits that impressed us immediately was the absence of the typical, ‘Trust me, I know this market’ condescension. Elaine was refreshingly respectful, but with a confidence backed by obvious knowledge and a record of good outcomes. From listing to closing, Elaine guided our decisions with courtesy; whenever she had to push back, it was supported by diplomacy and factual reasoning. Her team followed that same lead throughout the process. If I had to summarize Elaine’s technique with a few key ideas, those would be: Preparation, Presence, Communication, Tenacity, and Follow-through…. Read More
I have the highest regard for Elaine’s work. She helped me buy two properties in Palm Springs and sell another. All these transactions went very smoothly and quickly. She has an excellent sense of market conditions and prices properties realistically for buyers and sellers. She also has a sharp eye for potential pitfalls. Buying and selling property can be stressful. Elaine is excellent at the “hand holding” that buyers and sellers sometimes need and helps walk you through the cumbersome process. She’s a gem!
Just wanted to let you know just how much we appreciated your handling of the selling of my mothers home at 43400 Illinois Ave., Palm Desert. From the first day of meeting you, you were so on top of the sales, listings and how short period of time on market that they were sold. My sister, Sharon and I felt very comfortable about you handling the selling of our home and pricing it so well and what we wanted out of the home. Your immediate action you took once the home was on the market and your action to having open homes and receiving 4 offers during the first week, of holding an open house. We can’t thank you enough… Read More
We researched real estate agents when we were making a big change, moving from decades at the beach to a new home in the desert. Elaine Stewart was recommended to us by a respected colleague, and from our first meeting with her, we were completely assured we’d found the perfect person to help us. Elaine has an encyclopedic knowledge of the entire Coachella Valley, which she generously shared in guiding us on our search. She is highly professional, meticulous, and very supportive of her clients. She was always available to answer our questions and concerns promptly, and spent days showing us many wonderful properties until we found the perfect one. She was patient, and never allowed us to feel rushed or… Read More
We enthusiastically recommend Elaine Stewart as the agent to use in the Palm Desert/ La Quinta / Rancho Mirage area. She took us through the whole process extremely competently. She educated us about the area, had excellent knowledge about the different communities, and helped us make the right decision. She went out of her way to help us in any way she could. Best recommendation A++++
Thank you so much for all your time and relentless effort to sell our home, when we were ready to give up. We appreciate all your efforts and honesty. Your one in a million. Thanks and our love, Diane W.
We were moving from CT to CA, & Elaine Stewart sent us some photos of homes for sale. We did not want to buy, until we arrived in CA, We met her on Thursday 6/22/18, and she was only able to show us 4 homes, since 6 homes had just gone into escrow. We saw the fourth home, knew right away it fit our needs, and made an offer on the home. The seller agreed on our offer, and within 3 hours, we were able to meet our new realtor, make an offer, & have it accepted by the seller. Elaine goes the extra mile, to make it happen. She was outstanding in keeping us informed through the whole process… Read More
Recently my husband and I had the pleasure of working with Elaine Stewart in our quest to find the perfect home. We had anticipated our search might take several weeks as our schedule only permitted us to drive to the desert on weekends. However, in our initial phone conversation, I knew that Elaine was the right choice. She asked all the right questions to elicit our criteria. We shared with her what our budget was for a condo, although we didn’t have a feel for what the market was. We also weren’t sure which community best suited our lifestyle. She assured us that she would help us find a home within our budget, in a community we would love,… Read More
First, let me say “Thank You” for taking such good care of us through the home buying process. As you know we met with you about 6 years ago looking to purchase a home in the valley. You were kind enough to spend a weekend with us in 2011 and showing us lots of homes. We decided not to purchase at that point because we really wanted a beach house on the East Coast. Fast forward and 6 years later as we are looking at retirement my husband still had your contact information and we reached out to you. You made an impression on us the first time so we kept your contact information. So in May of 2018 we… Read More
