The word "Home" conjures up different things to different people, but for me, it became, over time, super-charged with a sense of longing but resignment, having been a multiple homeowner at one stage and walking away from it all to experience what inevitably became a determinedly nomadic existence.

"Home" eventually became a distant thing that belonged to other people, something other folk enjoyed, an experience I once had but was maybe never going to happen again, like a trip to that diving island in Fiji I'd never go to again, even though I loved it, or that place in London I should have kept, but didn't, and at times searching for where "Home" might be. I would throw darts against a map pinned on the wall, wondering if they'd stick onto someplace I never thought about and like magic "Home" would happen again. But it didn't.

My besties who have a place in Palm Desert (a place I felt calm and very creative in) wanted me to stick the dart there and, never really wholly engaging in the idea, eventually I agreed to meet their friend Betsy Justice and, after much discussion, we went on a journey together. A road trip really. I rode shotgun with her as she took me on adventures of the idea of "Home" and what it might look like in the many ways that others see as "Home" and many times I just knew there wasn't enough gas in the world to get me there and just let her drive that car alongside a stubborn critter that just didn't believe you could actually get anywhere anymore.

And then at times I realized it was she who was sitting shotgun beside me and taking in the mysterious WTF of what even I didn't know what it was I was looking for. And eventually it shapeshifted into understanding.

And here's the thing:

The world is populated with people who call themselves "Real Estate Agents" and that's just fine. It's also populated, though in a lesser degree, with people who ride shotgun with your dreams, even though you don't even think your dream lives out there in the world anymore, and that simple strong powerful energy of someone just wanting you to find the thing you want, or don't even know you want, but riding shotgun with you in an adventure to find the place - The Place - that make your heart sing, that makes you feel safe, that makes you feel the world is actually alright - is rare and extremely special.

I'm a Home Owner now. Not a Property Owner. Not a House Owner. I got "Home". I have keys in my hand. They're mine.

Thank you Betsy Justice, for riding shotgun with me or me riding with you, who gives a crap.

We got me there. We got me Home.

We really feel an obligation to give Kayla Cunard with Sheri Dettman & Associates a lot of praise. We need to thank Sheri Dettman for the introduction to Kayla via telecon and then we had the opportunity to meet in person on a quick visit to the Coachella Valley to view homes personally. Kayla was described as one of the agencies’ best buyers’ representatives and she did not fail. We are confident that she represents sellers as well.
Kayla was well organized and presented herself with experience and knowledge of the communities and neighborhoods we had prepared in advance of homes to view. We found Kayla to be an ideal listener in understanding and identifying what we were seeking so she could facilitate and assist us in timesaving research.
During our home search we hit a few dead ends, but that didn’t dissuade our pursuit with Kayla. From our home in the Seattle area, Kayla provided visits, video, and critique of homes we were interested in from internet research. She went the extra mile both figuratively and literally to provide the information and feel of being in each home visited.
After our purchase, Kayla is still available to our every request. She is a great communicator and very responsive in addressing a variety of requests. We highly recommend Kayla for your real estate needs be it buying or selling. We are highly confident that you will not be disappointed. 5 Star Attention and Service!

"We were represented by Betsy Justice. Betsy has represented my wife and I in multiple transactions. She is extremely organized and professional. She ran point on our last transaction which was incredibly helpful. She has a great knowledge of the area and spent a great deal of time locating an ideal property for us. We will continue to use Betsy and would highly recommend her to others."

My husband and I recently purchased a new home in La Quinta where we had the pleasure of working with Kayla Cunard! She was extremely knowledgeable of the market and a fantastic resource to us as we explored the area. I felt Kayla listened to our wants and did a great job of leading us to our dream location. We were able to confidently count on her throughout the entire process which was a huge help being that we were 500 miles away. Without a doubt we would chose to work with Kayla again in the future.

My husband and I recently made the move from the Pacific Northwest to the Coachella Valley.

We were very fortunate to have found Lisa Fein Blodgett of Sheri Dettman and Associates to help us through the transition.

Coming from a completely different climate to a desert setting can be quite daunting when you know very little about a desert living.

Lisa was beyond patient with us. She took the time to get to know us and she listened to our wants and needs.

She took the time to explain the pros and cons of the neighborhoods we were looking in and guided us to areas that would fit our needs and desired lifestyle.

We never felt like we were asking a dumb or silly question. No matter what we threw at her, she did the research and gave us honest and relevant answers.

Lisa was an advocate for us from the first time we met her all the way through the buying process and even took the extra time to answer some questions after the sale was complete.

Between the two of us, my husband and I have bought 6 properties in our lives and we know how important an honest and reliable real estate agent is in this process. Lisa exceeded all of our expectations and we would recommend her to anyone who is looking for real estate professional.

Thank you, Lisa!

Our agent, Lisa Blodgett, was everything a client could ask for in a realtor. She was personable, informed, and enthusiastic about our search for a new home. When we were stonewalled by the mishandled purchase of our home in Vallejo, she was upbeat about the obstacles and patient about the process. She is the most effective professional in the business

 Thank you Sheri and her support staff for helping us find a great deal in Palm Desert. We have purchased several homes in our years and this was smooth sailing from the start. It was very beneficial to be kept informed as it was a probate issue. We felt that Shari literally held our hand through the whole process. Very professional!!
