"Buying a home in Palm Springs was both scary and exciting for us. Living in England meant many challenges including remote viewings and we had to put a lot of trust into John to help us make decisions. His local knowledge is outstanding and was particularly valuable to us as oversees buyers. John was incredible from our first meeting, instantly putting us at ease and offering a lot of reassurance, he really took time to get to know us as a family and understand our needs thoroughly. Despite the 8 hour time difference between us, john was highly responsive to messages and emails and never made us feel bad for asking silly questions (of which there were many). It really was a great experience and after a few short months, we now have our dream home in the desert, and a wonderful friend in John."

"John made this difficult process much easier and pleasurable for me. He was extremely patient and kind during the process. Again he went above and beyond expectations. I would absolutely recommend and refer John as a realtor. I truly appreciate all his hard work and dedication. I knew he had my best interests in mind 100% of the time."

"I have had interactions with the Paul Kaplan office (on Palm Canyon), talked to several different of their gents at different times over the years, and was always impressed with the professionalism and enthusiasm they had for their jobs.
I have bought/sold about 4 pieces of property (2 in LA). These two men were the best agents of all these transactions.
All the above occurred throughout the transaction and continues in assisting me.
He worked as a team with Gary Johns. The comments/evaluation include both of these men.
Mike Johnson was especially keyed into informing me of day-to-day operations. I always felt he was working FOR me to be successful in this sale."
Kathryn Bogie, Palm Springs (Buyer) Wed, 04 May 2022 09:23:56 +1000
"Working with Niko Esposito was the best real estate experience either of us has ever had. We were looking for someone who really understood our needs and would listen to us carefully. We needed someone who had a very visual sense and who values the unique and special details of each property with an eye to Mid Century Modern Architecture. We were also hoping to find a realtor who was fun and positive to take some of the pain out of real estate shopping. Niko Esposito was all of the above! Her warmth and charisma were clearly a motivating factor in our beating out ten other bids. She even gave us some serious support well after the sale in the form of gathering data and information to present in the process of obtaining a refinance. She has looked at other properties we own and provided us advice about how to optimize value. She is obviously in the business of building relationships, not just closing sales. We have and will continue to recommend her to everyone!"

"We have worked with several other agents before in the buying and selling of houses and, by far, Sara Swanson was the best. Her approach to conducting business, her willingness and ability to respond to our needs and to any questions that arose during the process was stellar. She was able to read our reactions to properties well and save us time by offering options that suited our needs. Her ability to frame our offer, make the paperwork process easy, and work smoothly with all individuals involved in the closing process were on point and extremely appreciated. Her ability to see the spaces inside the home and offer visions for possible uses when asked was very beneficial. I will, whole heartedly, refer anyone I know to Sara when buying or selling a home."

"Given the suddenness with which I proceeded with the purchase of a property in an area I was not familiar with and far away from home and during the heat of the pandemic, Lisa was quick to act and guide me through a successful purchase of a summer home with professionalism and savvy."
J Marchyn, Palm Springs (Buyer) Wed, 23 Mar 2022 09:39:22 +1000
"Lisa Ferretti was, hands-down, the most strategic, professional, trustworthy, and thoughtful agent I have ever worked with. Lisa was always thinking 3 steps ahead, and helped to keep us focused on what mattered.
Lisa's ability to understand our goals and objectives was key. She understood we weren't just looking to just "buy a house," and was thoughtful about what opportunities she brought to us.
Lisa's knowledge of the local market - and, more importantly, her local network - made this transaction a success. It was quite evident Lisa's reputation of a top-notch, well-connected agent allowed us to have a seamless transaction across many moving parts (financing, escrow, etc.).
I will definitely use Lisa again, and have already recommend others to her."

"Lisa was recommended by friends of my sister, and I could tell the referral was going to work out a few minutes into meeting Lisa. She immediately could tell what my personality was and that really helped with our communication and in determining what was our best strategy in getting a place in Palm Springs. I appreciated her knowledge of the area and of the inventory available. But she really shone after the offer was made and accepted with the subsequent negotiations and making sure everything went through with everyone being happy. She gave me a lot of recommendations regarding services and restaurants plus referrals for professional help--all the stuff you need when you get a new place! She made landing in Palm Springs easy and pleasant. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anybody looking for a home in the area."

"My brother was diagnosed, after an auto accident, with an early probable Lewy's Dementia. He had to sell his last beloved little home. He had never wanted to sell it. He had always wanted to get it,and had showered endless love on it. When he decided that, given he had no support system in the area, he should move to Assisted Living it was with heartbreak he had to sell his home. It was by accident that we saw Lisa's card posted and called her. While others came to criticize and suggest this and that Lisa's first words were of the beauty and peace of the place. She aimed higher than we imagined it could be sold for. She put her own heart into decorating things when my brother had moved out. She clearly loved the place and she sold it almost at once. She helped my brother enormously in the organizing of his papers. She gave him a confidence that he so needed. He assured him his place would go into good hands, and neighbors assure us it did.
My brother has since died. I will never be able to express my appreciation of Lisa for all she did for him, for sharing with us that it meant more to her than just "selling a place" to help my brother. She was a joy to work with."

"Lisa Ferretti has a lot of intuition, patience, knowledge and most importantly enthusiasm to help walk first time home purchasers like us through this process. We really appreciate her taking the time to get to know us. With her vast experience of home and landscape design she was able to paint a picture of how we could create our dream home & property from this purchase. Everything she had suggested came true and I’m so happy to say we have a wonderful, perfect home that we are extremely proud of. What’s worth mentioning about Lisa is during this current hot market which makes it terribly difficult for people to find and secure a home to purchase she has great skills of staying positive and excited which we certainly needed. She held our hands through the process of buying our first home with much compassion. She delivered excellence for us even with our home being considered on the financially lower side of homes in our neighborhood, this just shows how she treats everyone equally with much respect and kindness. Thank you Lisa!"
Craig R, Palm Springs (Buyer) Tue, 15 Mar 2022 07:27:56 +1000
"Lisa is the perfect person to trust your home with, especially if like me, you’re buying/selling mobile homes. Her knowledge of mobile home renovation, marketing, and sales are top notch.
I selected Lisa to sell my home after I saw what a great job she did in listing a neighbor’s property. I was beyond happy with the offer she brought me and have/will continue to work with Lisa anytime I’m buying or selling in the Palm Springs area.
Lisa is a pleasure to work with-her dedication and knowledge, in my opinion, are unmatched."

"On the recommendation of a friend, I used Brad and Matt when I bought the property five years ago. When it came time to sell, I didn't hesitate to call them to handle the sale. I wasn't sure exactly when I wanted to start the process. They were very patient, never applying any pressure and always available to answer questions. Once the decision was made to move forward, they came in and took care of everything, making it a very easy process. The sale was quick and trouble free. If I ever buy in the area again, I will definitely call Brad and Matt."

He was always readily available, day or night, to answer questions and ensure the transaction went smoothly.

"We are transplants from Silicon Valley, we asked our good friend Barb Nagy to recommend a realtor to help us find our forever home in the Palm Springs area. Before this we had scoured real estate everyday online for the better part of a year. We decided to buy a condo first, so we could come down and take our time looking for a home. Mike helped us with that purchase first, looking at many many condos Mike had prepared for us, we found a great condo and thanks to Mike, the condo transaction went very smooth!
Mike is very knowledgeable, definitly intuitive, and patient!! After moving into the condo, we must have looked at 100+ homes with Mike before we found the "one" in Palm Springs. Mike absolutely knows his shit, pardon the French. Mike was wonderful to work with, and we will certainly steer anyone we know looking for real estate to Mike Johnson and the Paul Kaplan Group! Thank you so much Mike!!!"

"My husband and I are from Canada and knew that we needed to work with someone who has excellent communication skills, since the deal would likely be long-distance. We came to the Palm Springs area one weekend and visited a variety of open houses with the intent of meeting a few agents face to face. After meeting 5-6 local agents from various brokers, Mike was the obvious choice as he was personable, kind and incredibly knowledgeable about the area and what to look for/avoid. He was welcoming from the moment we came through the door and listened to what we were looking for.
A month later, Mike contacted us about a dream condo coming on the market and he worked with us in a timely manner to ensure the deal went through. Throughout the process, he went above and beyond to make our move a success.
We are now settled and incredibly happy, thanks to Mike. We highly recommend him! Thank you, Mike."

"We were paired with Stephanie Howard by chance when we were searching for out first Palm Springs home 2 years ago. We loved our experience with her so much when buying that property, we chose her again to buy our second desert home this year.
Stephanie is simply the best at what she does. She is tireless in her pursuit to find us the right home. She is particularly patient with extremely picky people (us!)
Stephanie is always on the ball. She keeps track of every detail and always has the answer I need whenever a question arises.
Every experience I've had with Stephanie Howard has been great!
I've bought and sold homes in other cities and I know how difficult it can be to deal with other buyers and sellers, not to mention navigating the legal complexities required for closing. Not every realtor and agent knows how to do it all, and few of them do it well.
Stephanie knows how to do it all, and she not only does it well, she excels at it.
She makes buying property easy and enjoyable!"

There were issues that needed to be addressed (minor cleaning and landscaping, errant roofing tiles, wind damage, minor electrical needs) and Kris worked with me to find service people to address the needs so that we could get the house sold. She was always pleasant and often calming, when need be. She understood the particularities of my situation and did everything she could to help make the process manageable and to put me at ease. I wish I would be so lucky to find a broker of Kris's caliber every time I bought or sold a home. Kris, I can't thank you enough!"

Mike is beyond knowledgeable about the market. And an expert at navigating the entire process. He was simply a joy to work with. We will use him again, and again."

"Niko was great to work with - we were purchasing from out of state and had lots of questions -she responded immediately with all information we needed to move forward.
We wouldn't hesitate to work with Niko again in the future and would refer her to anyone needing a great agent in the SoCal area.
Thank you Niko!!"

"Clay Baham, was critical to our home selling in Palm Springs and we're so happy we chose Clay over other brokers we interviewed. I'm also a licensed active agent in Los Angeles and had been taking note of strong candidates, knowing we would be selling. After interviewing several other brokers, we knew Clay was the perfect fit for us because of his very specific knowledge of architects and their highly coveted homes. Clay showed up ready, knowledgeable and on-time!
Clay was clear, concise and highly motivated to sell our home. We felt he believed in our home and its' value. After working through a few scenarios leading to offers; I could tell Clay was not only knowledgeable, he was a very highly skilled agent proving time and again, his reach and professionalism was widely and well recieved by Buyers and their agents including lenders which, I had the opportunity to overhear Clay qualify a Buyer of ours and their financials.
This was more than comforting because I felt Clay was a natural extension of myself by rep representing me the way I would have which, is often times hard to find in another agent with a different firm.
Clay negotiated our sale with a finesse, charm and a hawk like manner. Never once did I have to call him to address a concern or potential problem. Clay the consumate professional was always ahead of the deal and always very straightforward and timely, offering solutions and probabilities rather than problems and no resolutions.
I would highly reccomend Clay for numerous reasons. Mainly for his vast knowledge, experience and ability to manage very high expectations with tight time frames. And, doing so with a smile and positive mannerism.
I appreciate Clay and his dedication, not only to our sale but to the craft of selling luxury homes and really giving it his all. Even after closing, Clay has stayed in contact with us, which is nice to know he still appreciates us and our business. Usually, agents forget your name once you close.

"I would recommend Kris because she is extremely professional, friendly and patient. She took time to guide us every step of the way. She was not critical when we screwed up. ( yes funny story attached to that). Her local knowledge is extensive. We hope to stay in touch even though we are no longer in Palm Springs."

"Being out of country and purchasing a home in the Desert could have been tricky but Diann made everything run smoothly and and stress free. Her patience with us was unending and her professionalism abounds. Her understanding of our needs was unbelievable! She had great knowledge of all the neighbourhoods we had selected to look at homes in and gave us backgrounds on all areas. We ended up purchasing a home, ironically in Diann’s own neighbourhood, and look forward to a long lasting relationship with our new neighbor!"

"Gary quickly understood what I wanted and focused my search. From our first meeting, I knew I’d eventually buy from him.
He’s a total pro.
There was competition for this property but the transaction couldn’t have gone smoother."

"Clay Baham excelled in keeping me informed and in managing all aspects of the sale. Being from out of state I never personally met him but everything was handled beautifully.
Advice to stage the home,and suggested person to do the staging, turned out perfectly.
Clay delivered with an excellent full price offer within one week of listing the property.
I couldn’t be happier with the service and results I received in listing with Clay.
He handled everything including negotiating and managing all work and marketing aspects of the sale.
Clay is a very professional and effective real estate agent. Nice guy too!"

"I am very impressed by The Paul Kaplan Group's presence in the PS community.
Mike Johnson makes buying and selling real estate an enjoyable experience. His knowledge of the area as well as his local business connections helped us sell our home in a matter of days.
Mike's personality and knowledge makes the process of selling real estate as painless as possible. He is the ultimate professional!
I often recommend The Paul Kaplan Group to people I know looking for property in the valley because of their professionalism and everyone I have had an interaction with have been extremely friendly and helpful."

"Diann was a pleasure to deal with. Very professional and always upbeat. As we are not resident in Palm Springs we had to rely heavily on Diann for local knowledge and "on the ground" assistance in dealing with minor issues that came up during the transaction. She was extremely helpful and never lost her sense of humour. Over all Diann made what could have been a stressfull experience quite stress-free."

"Dear Kris Rain
Over the years, Ted and I have purchased and sold a few houses as we lived, worked and played across United States. Some of the home buying experiences have been good, one experience was bad. None have been exceptional until we meet you. Mostly, the quality of the experience of selling a home has been largely influenced by the quality of the Real Estate agent that provided assistance. You Kris have always gone above and beyond any of the other 9 or 10 agents we have used over the last 20 years.
As a result of your assistance in our recent sale of our homes in Palm Springs and Idyllwild, California we would have to say it was actually the most FUN and you were the best agent we have ever worked with! We really appreciated the way in which you responded to the few times we had bad news from our buyer....who at times was a piece of work.
We would like to “Thank You” for the knowledgeable and friendly manner in which you handled everything in both these transactions. Also, by sharing your own knowledge and experiences, you helped us to feel comfortable and at ease in our deliberations and decisions regarding the properties that we were selling!
You can be assured that we will be offering your name to everyone we know looking for the assistance of a exceptional (and FUN) Real Estate agent. You are a ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Agent!!
Chuck Honse & Ted Janka"

"Mike understood that we were learning the market but didn't plan to actually buy until 2018. Even in that situation, Mike was attentive, accessible and interested in me as a client.
When the right house came along and we decided to purchase now rather than wait, Mike rolled up his sleeves and went right to work. All of his recommendations for the Mortgage and all sales related services including inspections, repairs, short term rental agency and other contacts, were top notch. I trusted Mike to manage the sale since we live in Seattle and needed to complete the purchase remotely. My trust paid off in the excellent results and the ease of completing the purchase."

"Our experience with Peter Roa has been amazing! My husband and I are self-employed and live out of the country. We have high standards when it comes to our own customer service and our time is extremely precious so we expect the same in a Real estate Agent. Peter went out of his way to accommodate our busy schedule at the same time making sure our needs were being met and fully understood with regards to the sale of our condo. We trust his knowledge & expertise as he has proven time and again to be a competent Real estate Agent who is always available via telephone of text."

"When I first spoke with Niko, I wasn't sure whether or not if I wanted to rent or buy. She provided me with the information I needed to make that decision. Niko never in any way pressured me to do anything that was not in my own best interest. I soon learned I could count on her to provide unbiased information. Whenever I expressed interest in one thing or another she provided the information in a timely manner. When viewing property, doing paper work etc. I felt as though I were working with a friend. Niko is an extremely pleasant person to work with. Anyone finding themselves in the position of needing real estate should call her first."

"My wife and I were impressed by Diann's willingness to work with us, given that we were in the exploration phase of searching for a retirement home, which is 12-18 months on the horizon.
Diann's knowledge and years of experience provided my wife and I confidence that our interests were paramount throughout the entire search and escrow process.
I was very impressed with Diann's responsiveness to my early morning and late evening inquires. In each case, she returned my calls and replied to my e-mails within a very short period of time.
Diann, was our sole contact throughout the entire home buying experience.
My wife and I were very happy working with Diann throughout the entire sales experience and would recommend Diann to friends and family."

Alice Reimannrecommended by Seller view agent's profile
"Alice went above and beyond what was expected. She really hustled and made me feel like I was her only client.
She was very responsive and caring. When I had a question, she would quickly provide me with an answer. Throughout the sales process I felt like her number one priority.
Alice's exceptional personality and drive was matched by her professionalism. She knows the market and prepared and priced my property accordingly. She gave me what proved to be sound advice on what improvements I needed to make to get the best price.
Alice wanted me to be successful and I felt that personal responsibility through to close. I highly recommend her services."

"Stephanie had a lot of good ideas she made me step outside the box and look at property I didn't think I would look at which I liked a lot. she knew her neighborhoods extremely well and she seem to know exactly where to start on making offers. I like to units equally the same so we made an offer on both to see you came back first it was the smoothest easiest real estate transaction I have ever had . Looking forward to doing business with her again ."

Jen Hughes, Iowa (Seller) Wed, 02 Aug 2017 23:08:09 +1000
"Thumbs up in every regard. We were wary about hiring an agent over the phone without the chance to meet first. But it couldn't have worked out better. Alice was low-key, friendly, helpful, and happy to accommodate our schedule. She figured out what we were looking for and tracked it down.
Buying a house is complicated and stressful. We had a tight schedule--we flew out to Palm Springs ready to buy and with about a week to spend looking. Alice saved us lots of looking by visiting properties in the weeks ahead of our trip and evaluating them for us. My wife and Alice were quickly on the same page. By the time we got to Palm Springs Alice had helped us narrow our choices down. We saw the place we wanted on the very first day--because she'd helped us target the right places for us. Nice work!
Alice is as nice as they come. We'd use her again without a moment's hesitation and recommend her to anyone."

Alice is top-notch in every way!"

Dan kept everything on track with his attention to detail, responsiveness, and great communication. We were able to close in thirty days. He was very knowledgeable, and provided great insight and guidance. It was a truly a pleasure working with him."
Janet Homberg, Las Vegas (Buyer) Sat, 08 Jul 2017 05:34:06 +1000
"Mike is a well informed experienced agent. He understands the Palm Springs local market extremely well but also the surrounding valley cities. Although he is part of an agency that specializes in mid-century modern homes he is able to get a broad sense of a buyer's needs and guide them accordingly. Having been both a buyer and seller he is well equipped to navigate all components of the process and make it happen. He is very focused on individual needs and aims to create a win-win situation."
