Desert Paradise Found!!!Way back in the 1970's Gary stopped in Palm Springs on the return leg of a Hawaiian vacation from Boston to visit with college friends who now resided in the beautiful desert valley. Taken by its magnificent climate and leisurely lifestyle, the Greater Palm Springs area became his winter respite for the next several years. Finally, in 1980, Gary took the plunge. Having been in hospitality management, first in finance and later project construction, he decided to further that career where it really made sense - here!
Experience Working For You!After successfully managing four-star resort hotels whle residing in the desert, Gary decided to take his extensive knowledge of the desert and combine it with valuable experiences absorbed from his years in the luxury resort business to provide a full service, quality experience for those who wish to buy or sell their first or second home. "I love the desert and I'd like to share what I've discovered with those who want the very best in resort living".

In the latest statistics, Gary successfully negotiated and closed more than $15,000,000 in 2005 valley sales. His twenty-five years as a desert resident, multi-faceted background combined with his inate customer service attitude and support staff attending to every detail have served countless satisfied clients very well over the years.
