Information For Palm Springs Area Homebuyers

Most of Sheri's buyer clients are investing in a lifestyle for their family and friends rather than just a Palm Springs area home. This is about much more than real estate, it’s about finding just the right Palm Springs area property for your lifestyle and then negotiating the best price and terms possible!

Sheri offers you her exclusive online tools and information which enable you to start your search and to learn more about our Palm Springs resort lifestyle communities immediately and without obligation.

How Working With Sheri Can Benefit You!

If you're here looking at and then negotiating buying your desert home, remember that the Seller will have a real estate agent working directly for them. You should also have an experienced Palm Springs area Realtor like Sheri and her team working for you, guiding you and looking out for your best interests. And the best part is that hiring Sheri and her team as a buyer, it is basically at no cost to you. In most circumstances our service fee is paid by the Seller from the proceeds of the sale.

Not Your Average Realtor's, Not Average Results!

While the average Realtor succeeds in helping an average of only 12 people each year to buy or sell a home, Sheri and her small team of specialists completed over 100 Palm Springs area sales transactions during a recent 12 month period. This means that they visit hundreds of properties in dozens of Palm Springs area communities on a regular basis which can benefit you.

Staying On Top Of The Palm Springs Area Real Estate Market

“In my opinion, it’s hard to stay on top of the Palm Springs area real estate market if you only complete about one transaction per month,” Sheri said. “You wouldn't be as familiar with as many communities and properties and you certainly don’t have much experience negotiating transactions on behalf of your clients.”

“I welcome the opportunity to serve your real estate needs. If not me, you’ll want to choose an agent that is busy, successful and experienced. Personally I choose my tax adviser, doctor and dentist the same way! Please don’t hesitate to contact me when the time is right – even if you just have a real estate question.”
