About Me

Smart Moves Start Here!

Your next Palm Springs Real Estate transaction can be lots of fun and very exciting but going into it unprepared could make it scary and costly. Anyone can show you a home or list your property. It takes skill and experience to bring value to you as a buyer or seller. Our commitment to you is just that. Value.  We will save you money as a buyer or get you more as a seller. In dozens of subtle ways each Real Estate transaction is full of opportunities to spend too much money or leave yourself unprotected. Simply put we won't let that happen to our clients.

Get solid advice and an experienced team on your side.  With more than a decade of experience in sales and two decades of investment experience Michael is keenly aware of the steps needed to keep you safe. 

In conjunction with my full time business partner Marcia Francois we have 30 years of experience to bring to the table. Our backgrounds include computers, public relations, commercial leasing and Real Estate Office Management.

Using technology with a personal touch you will quickly be at ease with our teaching approach to finding your perfect Desert property or selling your current property.
