“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.”


“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. “


“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 was 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! “


“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!”


“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.”


“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. “


“Elaine helped us with the purchase of a vacation property in Palm Desert. As non-resident buyers, there was a lot we didn’t know about buying real estate in the US. When we started looking, Elaine immediately put us at ease with her deep knowledge of the market and her professionalism. She took us to what we wanted to see and also exposed us to other viable options, always with our wish list and budget in mind. We were guided successfully through the escrow process by Elaine’s assistant, who tirelessly acted as our eyes, ears and legs as we live a fair distance from Palm Desert. We cannot imagine having made this purchase with any other real estate team. “


“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.”
