"We found ourselves in a small bidding war for the house we loved and Chris expertly guided us through it. He suggested things we could do to improve our offer. Ultimately we were successful. It was a little nerve wracking since we were doing this all long distance. But Chris had paid attention to details and negotiated with the seller’s very well so that the whole transaction went smoothly. He was good natured and patient as the process went forward. It’s important to work with a realtor that gives you that sense of security and confidence that the process is working and there aren’t any surprises. Chris Bale is that realtor."

"We worked with Will Paine on purchasing a condo in Palm Springs. He definitely had his work cut out for him with what we were looking for and he took our very specific wants and needs and helped us find the exact right place we were hoping for. We put in a couple offers that we didn't get, but when we finally did get an accepted offer, we were thrilled. As we were in escrow, we found the unit had a major leak (two leaks actually) and he was really a hero in coordinating the repairs with the listing agent and the HOA. Our closing date also pushed twice due to the repairs and our own financing hitting a snag, but really, Will stuck with us and went the extra mile to make sure everything was on the up and up and that we were going to be all set in this new place. We did not have an easy, breezy escrow period and we could not have done it without him. In addition, the vendors he suggested were also all fantastic. All in all, highly recommend Will and the Paul Kaplan Group!"

"I'm so glad I worked with Will Paine of the Paul Kaplan Group to purchase my first home in Palm Springs. For over a year Will and I were in touch as I got my finances in order. When I was ready to start looking, Will was quick to provide listings for me to consider as I narrowed down my criteria.
When I was ready to visit some properties, Will compiled a comprehensive list within my budget. We looked at probably a dozen properties over two days and Will was patient in spending as much time as we needed and answering all questions. He never rushed or pressured me to move forward on anything if I had any reservations. His knowledge of the area and the architectural history of Palm Springs was super helpful. He always double checked with me when it came to decision time and guided me through the entire process.
I'm fortunate to have been able to work with Will and Paul Kaplan Group to find and purchase my first home."

Mike was the best!"

"Jim Caldwell couldn't have done a better job helping me find the perfect condo. Always on time; always willing to go the extra mile from our first meeting to handing me over my keys everything couldn't have been more smoother. Buying any property requires a lot of details from looking at various property, negotiations with the seller, home inspections and signing all he documents and having a great Realtor really helps make the process a lot smoother. I thank Jim for his tireless efforts. I would highly recommend him."

"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!!!"

"We were very fortunate to have met William Sileo at the first open house we went to. After talking to him for a short time, we felt that we had met the absolute right agent to help us find the house we were looking for.
William 'checked every box' for us when it came to being what we wanted in a real estate agent. There wasn't any question or request that went unanswered. Because of William's advice and coaching, our offer was accepted in a short amount of time and we left town just hours after our offer was made, happy that we had found and secured the house of our dreams.
We couldn't be happier with our entire experience. Not only did we have a great agent, we feel we also made a friend.
William gave us a really good understanding of the diversity of real estate and uniqueness of Palm Springs and gave us great advice and counseling of how to approach the buying process. William also helped us get to know Palm Springs - where to dine, shop, enjoy great cocktails! He also shared history and knowledge of the area.
Paul Kaplan was very generous with his time and met with us and William to help us understand the Palm Springs market and the thoughts and tactics to consider when making an offer on a house.
We couldn't have been more pleased with the entire process; from searching for homes that met our criteria, to making an offer, to the closing. We had all the help we needed along the way - offered to us even before we asked - and before we knew we needed it!"

From the beginning David was very attentive and seemed genuinely interested in helping me find the right property. I can say without question that David was the best realtor I have ever worked with. If I need another realtor in the future it will definitely be him. I highly recommend David!"

"Paul Linger was working with us as a buyer's agent. His product knowledge is very sound. He also has a keen eye when touring homes and is very well versed on building elements. Perhaps most importantly, however, he listened expertly and provided us with viewing opportunities that perfectly matched our interests. Throughout the entire transaction process he was a solid source of wisdom and reassurance. We greatly enjoyed and appreciated working with him.
When asked to rate someone's performance it is easy to be nice and blindly click on "excellent" for each attribute shown but as I went down the list I truly believed that I could have used each one of these terms to describe Paul Linger: Polite. Understanding. Friendly. Patient. Knowledgeable. Helpful. Trustworthy. Professional. Excellent and timely communicator. Accessible. Respectful. Approachable.....all of the above. He truly is a gem."

He never pressured us and operated in the utmost professional manner. Mike’s knowledge of mid century architecture and neighborhoods was a huge asset. Without him we wouldn’t have found and closed on exactly the house we wanted."

"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."

"After our first communication via email with Paul Linger, we felt that he clearly understood our needs and wants. Then after our first day of touring homes in the Coachella valley, it was clear that he was the right agent for us.
Paul was really easy to work with and went out of his way to help us through the process, especially since we were purchasing a home in an area of which we had limited knowledge.
We were very satisfied with our entire experience with Paul as our agent, and have recommended him to friends."

"As I have mentioned William has a very warm and understanding way about him that really puts one at ease during what can be a very trying and tumultuous time.
William was at all times very sweet and very patient in dealing not only with us, but the Sellers Agent, Loan Broker and all the differing entities that went into buying our home.
We honestly don't think we could have accomplished what we did without Williams help. Living out of the County also added an extra burden, that William kindly facilitated and worked out for us.
Thanks William for a job well done :)"

"Working with Steve was a total pleasure. He is incredibly knowledgeable about the Palm Springs/Coachella Valley market. He knows the neighborhoods, the architecture and the scene in general. Steve is an excellent communicator, is very organized and is helpful at every turn. We found a home, viewed it twice, negotiated a price, signed an agreement and had the house inspected -- all in less than a week. That doesn’t happen unless your agent is capable, hardworking and committed to your goals. We recommend Steve with no reservations."

Through my first phone conversation, I had confidence in Keith. I didn't even meet him in person until a week or two later when I travelled to California.
He handled the sale and closing with ease. He was aware that I only had a few days to travel to Palm Springs, pack and move, and close. With help from Keith, everything went like clockwork.
I will use Keith in the future and highly recommend him."

"Chris Bale had maintained a strong relationship with us during the entire ownership period of our vacation home. His thoughtfulness and professionalism the first time around made us contact him again. He did everything in a thorough manner, hosted agents at the home, listened to our needs and executed on a sale within a couple of weeks after the soft opening. I would definitely recommend Chris to other prospective buyers and I would use his services once again, when need be.
Chris Bale did an excellent job with all of the arrangements. For any seller who is a non-resident, I recommend Chris to take care of all the details. In addition, Chris will manage his projects without owner presence, which is wonderful for out of town owners."

"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!"

Because we had to come from out of town it was very important we saw as many properties as possible during each visit. Will was great at organizing and driving us to all the different homes. When looking at homes Will was very knowledgable about the different neighborhoods, the good and the bad. He was also great at helping us look at each home, the things that were interesting and unique as well as the bad.

"Kris went above and beyond the call of duty. I was selling the home from several states away. 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!"

"We have bought and sold many homes over the past years. And we have experienced many agents. Mike Johnson, is far and away the best Realtor we have ever had the pleasure to work with. 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."

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.

"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!"

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!"

Paul Lingerrecommended by Seller view agent's profile
"We interviewed three brokers, including Paul Linger. He was by far and away our first choice from the very beginning. We were selling a home that had been in the family for over 50 years and it was a very emotional time for us. Paul helped ease the burden by understanding the situation and making the process as seamless as possible. He has a fabulous personality and is very warm and kind. He provided great advice as to what we should consider pricing the house and and the reasoning behind it. He recognized the architect who designed the house and the value that mid-century modern added to it. He was always available to answer any questions or help with any concerns we had. He even offered to help us clear out the house (which was a huge undertaking) and n took items to the animal shelter for us! We consider ourselves very lucky to have found him."

"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."

"Diann was professional, knowledgeable, listened attentively to our needs and desires, punctual, and very willing to answer questions. We cannot say enough positive things about our experience working with Diann. She is one very amazing lady and certainly an asset to your organization.
We look forward to our move from Texas to California. And, thanks to Diann, the move so far has been a good experience."

"1st and foremost - Paul Linger "listened" to me and always ensured his understanding of my position on negotiating our offer price. His follow up and "management" of the entire process was amazing - thinking his background as a project manager adds to his efficiency and results. I travel for a living with a very busy work schedule, and Paul calendared my planned travels and ensured deliverables were complete while accommodating my schedule. I can't say enough good things about Paul Linger - this was probably the MOST efficient home purchase I have ever made (and I have made more than a handful). THANK YOU PAUL (and Paul Kaplan Group)!"

"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"

As a client doing research as you ask him a questions he gets back to you immediately and in today's fast paced world that is a big win! If he does not know the answer, then he does the research and gets back to you ASAP.
I could not be happier than the way things turned out."
