Elaine Stewart knows her stuff.  She helped us buy the house we wanted, and dealt with a myriad of issues in the negotiation process.  Elaine was quick to understand exactly what we wanted, and stayed within both our desires and price range.  Her knowledge of the desert communities helped us steer clear of some, and understand that others were not within our reach. While we know Elaine must have been busy, she took our many calls, or returned them very quickly. Always professional without being stuffy, Elaine is truly a pleasure to work with.  When we win the lottery (oh, we need to buy tickets??), we will ask Elaine to find us a home in one of those other areas. In the meantime, we highly recommend Elaine Stewart to everyone!

It is not often that one can find a top realtor who is prepared to work hard with buyers who are in the early stages of a search for their dream home in the Desert. Elaine went out of her way to provide us with market information and came up with a list of homes in a number of different locations in the valley that she thought might fit our broad criteria.   

 

She displayed unlimited time and patience showing us several homes with pleasure. Her assistance led to us purchasing a home that fit our specifications perfectly.

 

Her perseverance did not stop there. She worked hard to negotiate a very good price for the home that we fell in love with. Throughout the process, Elaine and her extremely hardworking, efficient and competent team were there to help answer questions and provide us with guidance on purchasing in the Desert. We would have no hesitation in recommending Elaine to assist anyone with their property transactions in the Desert. She is a realtor who is knowledgeable, hard working, trustworthy and an absolute pleasure to work with.

For a stressful short sale of your home, Elaine Stewart is the realtor to use.  She is familiar with the unique issues that arise with a short sale and is aggressive enough to deal with them as they arise.  In my case - as is probably common with most short sale cases - one thing went wrong after another.  The banks just DO NOT KNOW what they are doing!  Regardless, Elaine convinced to me hang in there and her team continued to deal with the banks.  I was ready to walk away from my home.  Thanks to Elaine, I stuck with the ridiculous process created by the banks and my home sold and closed escrow by the end of the year.  Thanks Elaine!

We found Elaine and her staff of Cari and Sergio to be very pleasant, prompt and committed to helping us find exactly what we were looking for in our vacation home.  We appreciated that they always responded quickly to all correspondence and provided us with an abundance of information.    We would highly recommend Elaine to anyone looking to purchase property.

Occasionally in life, you just get lucky.  That is how we feel about meeting Elaine Stewart in 2009 after she helped some friends acquire a property in the Coachella Valley.  Elaine spent time with us in 2009 and again in 2010 during our intermittent visits to the area at a time when we were interested but undecided about making a purchase.   Elaine remained in contact, providing us updates on the market by email, with no certainty that we would actually decide to buy.  That speaks to the genuinely helpful way in which Elaine works with her clients. At no time in this process did we feel any pressure from Elaine. In fact, we felt just the opposite -- that she would not be happy unless we were happy.  She was very patient with us, she understood that this was new for us and she was the consummate professional throughout the decision making period.

So, in early 2011, when we decided it was time to make a purchase, we let Elaine know that and the rest , as they say, is history.  Elaine immediately helped us refine our search parameters, provided much advance information electronically to help us identify target properties and met us promptly upon our arrival in the Palm Springs area -- with an extensive list of properties scheduled for our viewing.  She knew just what we wanted and didn't waste our time on properties that did not meet our criteria.  At the same time, when we did some research and asked questions about other areas or communities or properties, Elaine was able to readily address these questions. Frankly, she simply knows the real estate market in the Coachella Valley.  Elaine listened to us and proceeded accordingly. She gave us personal attention and tailored the viewing schedule to our wishes.  We allowed five days to look at properties and were able to relax and enjoy the sun for the last two days!!  And - we have never felt for one moment that we missed anything or could have done better.

Over the years, we have purchased a number of residences and have dealt with quite a few realtors.  Elaine brought something extra to the process that we have not previously encountered -- an intangible quality we can only label as her unique brand of personal professionalism.  Suffice it to say that Elaine was prepared, knowledgeable, attentive and thorough and made what can be a stressful process into quite an enjoyable one.  She helped us find exactly the right place for us (which included revisiting a few places a few times).  She provided invaluable advice on the offer process for the local market conditions. She knew what to ask for and what to offer -- which were substantially different than we were used to in the housing market in our home jurisdiction.  But her help didn't stop there.  She and her capable colleague, Cari, guided us through the entire escrow process which we undertook remotely, so we really valued the local assistance.  We were quite impressed with the accessibility of Elaine and / or Cari.  When we had a question, we got an answer and never had to wait more than minutes for a reply.  Even now that escrow has just closed, Elaine remains in contact and we look forward to seeing her when we next return to the Coachella Valley.


We would like to personally thank Elaine for helping us in our search for a home at Shadow Hills;  From beginning
to end we found Elaine to be friendly, personable, knowledgeable  and skilled;  always available to us by phone
or e-mail;  never too busy to get back to us quickly to answer our simplest  questions or concerns. 

We quickly came to realize that we could fully trust her and rely on her for any and all aspects  in the purchase of a home for us. She is an excellent communicator, a skilled negotiator, and was always a step ahead in anticipating our needs in the home we wished to purchase.  We, being out of state, she gave willingly of her time and effort to see that
all aspects of the sale went as planned.  

We have used Realtors before, and in comparison, we found Elaine to be the very best.  We would gladly, & without reserve, recommend her to any person we know that is looking for a property to purchase, knowing that she would give to them the same excellent service that we received.

"Elaine Stewart at Remax were a pleasure to work with from the beginning to the end. We got the best of everything from negotiating, to her knowledge of the market, and really knowing the community.

She found our dream home! Anyone looking for an agent should contact Elaine. We give here the highest recommendation. P.S. The staff at Remax is great too!

We had a terrific experience working with Elaine Stewart.  We came down in November to begin the process of finding a second home.  We had quite a broad criteria in mind and after just 1 day of looking with Elaine  - we narrowed down the area and community we wanted to be in.  We didn't find what we were looking for on that trip but once we were home, Elaine continued to send us listings and in January - we found the perfect place. 

Elaine's knowledge of the market helped us make the right offer that was accepted and we got exactly what we wanted.  Being from Canada, we weren't entirely familiar with the closing process in the US and we needed it to be completed in about 3 weeks.   Elaine and her staff were incredibly fast and efficient in helping us meet the deadline.  We would definitely recommend Elaine Stewart to anybody looking for real estate in the desert -she has a wealth of knowledge about the area and she is tireless and patient in the quest to find you the perfect place.

Dear Elaine,

We would like to thank you so much for helping us find the perfect home in South Palm Desert (Summit).
You and your entire staff helped make the process so much easier with your professionalism and understanding.

Teri was so efficient and mindful of our many requirements while working with us (and we had many!). We really appreciated all the hard work and patience.

I was extremely impressed with Elaine's general knowledge of the various communities surrounded the Palm Springs region, and how quickly she recognized what my priorities were, and their order of importance to me in my decision making process. She really went out of her way to ensure I saw a wide variety of houses, in several communities, in an effort to help me understand the positive and negative influences of each location. There was never any pressure on me to make a buying decision, only a desire on her part, to ensure that the choice I made was based on having as much information as she could supply me.

Elaine's dynamic and friendly personality made me feel welcome, and my comfort/trust level with her was immediate. The selection and buying process was a real pleasure, and once that was completed the support offered by the Re/Max Escrow division, by Errikka and Diane, was outstanding. Being from Canada, and not understanding the local process, I was quite concerned about the final stages of processing the sale such as the home inspection, money transfers, and legal documentation,..it was made very easy and worry free by the Elaine and the Escrow staff.

 

I can't say enough to express my sincere appreciation to Elaine for finding me the house that met my requirements, at a price I could deal with, in a timeframe of less than one week. And then to have all the worry taken out of the closing and documentation stage by the Escrow division, I would have to call it a perfect buying experience. I would most certainly use her services again, and would recommended her to any members of my family, friends or associates, without hesitation,  who may be considering a home purchase in the Palm Springs area.

We recently enjoyed the services of Elaine Stewart and her Remax team, and wish to add this entirely unsolicited testimonial.
 
Elaine is warm, personable, and highly knowledgeable about real estate in the desert cities.  We spent hours with her in a search for an attractive and affordable winter home, and saw a number of possible places.  We can report that the hours spent on scrutinizing MLS listings from afar were only partly helpful; the time we spent with
Elaine was the key.   She was especially helpful as we prepared our offer, and in the period of back-and-forth negotiation with the previous owner.
 
New owners will face a variety of issues and puzzles before and just after they take possession.  This may be particularly true of those, like us, from Canada.  Elaine was a great source of information about painters, tilers, cleaners, condo insurance, and many other services.  It seems to us that she knows everyone from Indio to North Palm Springs and, without exception, her recommendations proved accurate and most satisfactory to us.
 
We can recommend Elaine Stewart without reservation.

Having settled on the Palm Springs - Coachella Valley area as the location of our long awaited vacation home, we settled into the daunting task of researching real estate in this distant and foreign market.  Knowing the right real estate professional, who would truly listen to our needs and desires, would make the process the least painful, we came across Elaine Stewart.  My wife and I quickly felt at ease with her style, professionalism and dedication.

Elaine introduced us to the Coachella Valley and after numerous emails, websites, phone calls and eventually trips to the area, we became familiar and comfortable with the local real estate market.  We found the vacation home of our dreams and with Elaine's assistance, a deal was negotiated.  With the deal in place, Elaine continued to assist us in navigating the escrow process.

With the professionalism Elaine showed us thru the real estate purchasing process, we knew we had selected the right person.  We would enthusiastically recommend Elaine Stewart to any of our family, friends and acquaintances looking to purchase real estate in the Coachella Valley.

We would be happy to have this note posted to Elaine's website and would have no obligation if anyone would like to contact us directly regarding our experience.

Thanks again Elaine, it's been a pleasure!

I had the opportunity of working with Elaine Stewart of Re/Max at the beginning of 2009 on the sale of our Palm Springs condo. Working with her was both pleasant and easy. The condo sold within just a few weeks - a remarkable result under the current economic conditions. Elaine and her organization made all of the voluminous paper work required by the State of California fast and simple. Apart from her professional qualities Elaine is also a very nice person, and we can whole heartedly recommend her services.

"We recently started the exciting, and terrifying, process of looking for and purchasing a vacation home in the Coachella Valley. As Canadian Residents, it was even more anxiety ridden as we were unfamiliar with all of the rules, regulations, extensive paperwork and issues that would go along with purchasing a property in another Country.

 Despite doing some in depth background work, we were not fully prepared nor did we have the knowledge to complete this process on our own. We were extremely fortunate to have Elaine Stewart as our realtor.  Not only did she show us a large variety of properties in our price range, taking several days out of her schedule to do this for us, but she stayed with and assisted us from beginning to end.  From initial offer day through to closing, Elaine was there for us as an incredible source of advice and information.

We honestly would not have stuck with it, if it was not for her!  Elaine has spent countless hours going through the entire process with us, assisting us in completion of paperwork and providing an invaluable source of other information that new home owners/foreign owners would find difficult locating on their own.  We have already advised family and friends that we would highly recommend Elaine Stewart if they were to consider purchasing/selling any property in the Valley.

Elaine was very helpful to us for our home purchase in the desert.  She knew the inventory of properties very well and was able to adjust when  our needs changed.  She was always very quick to respond to our calls  and emails. We are very happy with our purchase, because of Elaine.

As you know we had a GREAT real estate experience with you and would HIGHLY recommend your services to any potential real estate buyer or seller. Your patience, market knowledge and professional service made us, as out of town/country buyers, relaxed and confident with our decision to purchase real estate in the desert.  In my view some people sell real estate and some care about the people....Elaine Stewart cared about us, our real estate requirements and we sincerely appreciate all the hard work that she did on our behalf. Five star service from a five star person!"

To Whom It May Concern

  RE:     ELAINE STEWART - REMAX REAL ESTATE CONSULTANTS                   


I had the pleasure during the last two months of dealing with Elaine Stewart, a real estate expert who works throughout the Coachella Valley.

I represented a group of Canadian investors looking to purchase a vacation condominium in Cathedral City, and, like most people who invest in a foreign country, had legitimate concerns about finding the right person for the job.  When one purchases property from a long distance away, it is imperative to have someone who is not only extremely knowledgeable, but trustworthy as well.  Happily for me, and the investors I represented, we found Elaine Stewart.

Ms. Stewart has not only impressed me with her knowledge and insight regarding the real estate market in California, and in particular the Coachella Valley, but has gone above and beyond the normal scope of her duties to give very helpful advice, and excellent service in assisting us to find the right property, deal with the negotiations for its purchase, and shepherd the escrow process through to its conclusion.  In short, she has earned the trust I now repose in her, as well as the gratitude of the investors I represent.

I would, without hesitation, recommend Elaine Stewart to clients, friends, relatives, and anyone who is looking for a consummate professional to deal with a real estate matter in southern California. 

I am happy to have this letter posted on Ms. Stewart's website, as I am pleased to say to any readers of this letter that my experience in dealing with Ms. Stewart was altogether both enjoyable and successful.

Yours truly,

We met with Elaine the day after an unsuccessful and frustrating bid on a condo in Palm Springs. She listened carefully to what we were looking for, and, as we were leaving for home in two days, Elaine posted all of our criteria on the MLS properties for sale.

Over the next two months, the computer emailed us many properties closely fitting our needs and finally one came up which we and Elaine decided to offer on. After some negotiating back and forth, we got an acceptance and we closed the sale in February, 2008.

Elaine then picked the escrow agent and to our great relief and pleasure, agreed to act as a "general contractor" for a fair fee to do renovations on our new home away from home.
Elaine is a realtor who gives the buyer professionalism personified, enthusiasm and a determination to get it done that all buyers expect but don't often get.We don't give referrals out lightly but were pleased to do so for her to two fellow Canadians.

I wanted to take this time to let you know how wonderful your Palm Springs/Riverside agent, Elaine Stewart , has been to me over the past two months.  Her knowledge, perseverance and positive attitude has helped me recently land a great secondary home in Palm Springs at Catalina Grove.   Her quick wit and pleasant charm helped me remain calm and rest assured that all would be okay.  Elaine was always available 24/7 to answer the many questions I had and still continues to do so. 

Thanks for letting me share this with you. 

All the best,
