Sheri Dettman & Associates is a leading full-service real estate group within Keller Williams Luxury Homes International. Recognized as the desert’s leading marketing and sales experts, our strategy is simple: We strive to provide the highest level of service and satisfaction possible to our client base via a small group of real estate, administration, and marketing specialists whose combined and diverse skills and talents is stronger together than individually.
After helping thousands of buyer clients find their desert home, we know that most of our buyer clients are investing in a lifestyle for their family and friends rather than just a home. For our seller clients we proactively invest in a marketing strategy, which will result in bringing a large pool of qualified buyers to each of our Palm Springs area home sellers.
