We enthusiastically recommend Elaine Stewart as the agent to use in the Palm Desert/ La Quinta / Rancho Mirage area. She took us through the whole process extremely competently. She educated us about the area, had excellent knowledge about the different communities, and helped us make the right decision. She went out of her way to help us in any way she could.

We were moving from CT to CA, & Elaine Stewart sent us some photos of homes for sale. We did not want to buy, until we arrived in CA, We met her on Thursday 6/22/18, and she was only able to show us 4 homes, since 6 homes had just gone into escrow. We saw the fourth home, knew right away it fit our needs, and made an offer on the home. The seller agreed on our offer, and within 3 hours, we were able to meet our new realtor, make an offer, & have it accepted by the seller. Elaine goes the extra mile, to make it happen. She was outstanding in keeping us informed through the whole process in contract, & with escrow. She kept in contact with us daily, as needed, to explain how everything was coming along. It was a real pleasure to work with her, and would highly recommend her to any person. Thank you Elaine, for helping us find the right home for us! We love our home!

Recently my husband and I had the pleasure of working with Elaine Stewart in our quest to find the perfect home.  We had anticipated our search might take several weeks as our schedule only permitted us to drive to the desert on weekends.
However, in our initial phone conversation, I knew that Elaine was the right choice.  She asked all the right questions to elicit our criteria.   We shared with her what our budget was for a condo, although we didn’t have a feel for what the market was. We also weren’t sure which community best suited our lifestyle.  She assured us that she would help us find a home within our budget, in a community we would love, and a time frame that suited us.  On Day One we looked at condos.  On Day Two,  Elaine suggested we might want to consider buying a house which was certainly possible within our budget.  By this time she knew that we preferred a fenced yard for our small dogs, we enjoyed gardening, and privacy.  By the end of the SECOND DAY we had found the home of our dreams, thanks to Elaine!
 Not only is she extremely knowledgeable  about the real estate market, she also knows the history of the area, the best restaurants, shopping, cultural events, health facilities - all the things a good neighbor would share with a newcomer.  She was our guide throughout the entire process, and she worked expeditiously to keep everything moving forward.  We also discovered she is well-known and  respected among others in her field - we were represented by the best escrow agent, best building inspector, best title company. She even took it upon herself to obtain our documentation from the HOA in order that we might close our escrow early.
It wasn’t until recently that we learned Elaine has been the #1 Top Producing RE/MAX Agent in the entire Coachella Valley for the past eight years, and  recipient of the RE/MAX Lifetime Achievement Award in 2013!  We can attest that all her honors are certainly well-deserved.

The sale of our Indio home in September was the third transaction that Elaine has handled for us over the past 15 years. She is an excellent quarterback in coordinating all of the parties involved in a house purchase or sale. We have always relied on her long and successful experience as a top realtor in the Coachella Valley and we have been rewarded by our trust in her.

Elaine Stewart did a wonderful job handling the sale of our vacation home in La Quinta.  As a second home and living out of the area Elaine made the process seamless.  She handled everything detail during the process with out my presence.  During the resale process she help meet everyone involved in getting the home ready to market.  Her communication was great with updates often during the sale process.  We ended up getting a great price in a relatively short period of time.  I highly recommend Elaine to handle the sale of your home…or any other real estate needs.

The first thing you notice about Elaine is that she is personable, bright, intelligent, and very attentive to your needs, and the details of the current local/national real estate market. The second, is how smartly and hard she works to get the results you need to attain your goals.

“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.”


“Thank you for all your help as our Real Estate Agent, and also as our new friend. You made a difficult transaction run very smooth. We were all trying to close escrow in a very short period of time, and, when things got tense and the deal seemed impossible, you kept us very calm and were glad you did, as we really like our villa.”
