Things to do in Indio, CA - Fantasy Springs Resort & Casino A top venue I recommend to visit while you're in Indio, California is the Rock Yard at Fantasy Springs Resort & Casino. The Rock Yard lets you enjoy live music outdoors every Saturday night under the stars with tribute bands during the summer months. By the way, summer months in the desert actually go from mid March through September. The Rock Yard is one of my favorite venues to go to on a Saturday night in Indio. Every Saturday night offers a different tribute band resembling the likes of AC/DC, Prince, and Bon Jovi. An added bonus to the outdoor festivities is the Rock Yard is absolutely FREE! Grab your friends and sit back and relax or get up and dance a little. Whatever your preference is, you're sure to have a great time....

Just SOLD in Madison Ranch to my very Happy First-Time Buyer! This 5Br/2Ba single-level home in Madison Ranch just closed yesterday for $270,000 and my First-Time buyer is thrilled!  We have been searching since  March (6 months) for the perfect home and made an offer on another in the same neighborhood at the end of May.  Many first-time buyers do not realize that it takes patience and persistence to find the perfect home for them.   My buyer was focused and very specific about her wants and needs.  She had done her homework- she set her budget and stuck to it.  She knew the neighborhood and area she wanted to live in and although she will live there with her boyfriend, she can afford it with or without his help.  She has excellent credit and came to the process prepared with all of he...

Buying a Home in a Competitive Market Indio CA 92203 Buying a home may be one of the most stressful events in a persons life.

Visit Shields Date Garden and see The Romance and Sex-Life of a Date!   Shields Date Garden is a MUST-DO when visiting the Palm Springs area.   Floyd and Bessie Shields started their date farm and business back in 1924 and it has become a thriving business and a famous tourist stop. Floyd created a film to educate visitors about the the date growing process and called it 'The Romance and Sex-Life of a Date'... a pretty racy and eye-catching title for the time. Shields is still in the same location, with the same small theatre featuring a continuous loop. You can purchase numerous types of dates at Shields, many that are grown exclusively at Shields.  You can sample the many varieties and also have them ship your dates home, or to family and friends.   Shields has a cafe behind the origi...

Twelve years in now, and all of us living in the beautiful Palm Springs Valley, can truthfully say that the incredible dream of Golden Voice and the Empire Polo Club has become a huge asset to our Valley.  Golden Voice just signed on for another 17 years with an additional 2 events/season and an increase of numbers at the Festivals.  What's happened here in our Valley? 1.  Indio is now on the International map for people that had never even heard of this sleepy, East Valley City. 2.  Land in Indio, Coachella, Thermal and the East Valley in general is back in demand.  I've put two equestrian properties into escrow the past two weeks.  3.  Polo and the world famous HITS horseshow used to be what people knew Indio for..now it truly lives up to it's tagline "City of Festivals." 4.  Local ho...

Indio California, one of our most easterly city's in the Palm Springs Valley, used to be known strictly for its date Festival and agricultural bounty. Not anymore. The Coachella music Festival has put the city of Indio on the international map. City revenue from the festival has helped ease Indio's deficits, and now with the city approved extension for the festival, the city of Indio is going to become increasingly popular for home and land buyers. The music Festival has changed the face of the entire Coachella Valley, particularly the sleepy Eastern cities of La Quinta, Indio, Coachella and Thermal. Our Eastern Valley still offers acres and acres of beautiful ranchland, date farms, equestrian estates, Miles of trails, and open space. It's a magical part of our Palm Springs Valley. The ...

  Beautiful day for polo yesterday at the Eldorado Polo Club in Indio.  This is just a couple of miles from our home-- and one of my best friends was competing with the ladies team yesterday.  Such a lovely setting for a Saturday afternoon!  Polo and the HiTS horse show are getting to be almost as popular as golf and tennis in the Palm Springs area! #livethedesertlife

Yesterday was the first day of League competition at both the Empire Polo Club and the Eldorado Polo Club..lots of polo with teams and horses testing their fitness and strategies.  Our Polo is such a unique event in our Palm Springs Valley..I hope that our seasonal visitors and snowbirds take the time to come out and experience it for themselves! A few fun facts about coming to the polo games in Indio 1.  Cost?  Ranging on days..from FREE to maybe $5/car..very affordable! 2.  What to wear?  Forget Pretty Woman and dress for comfort.  Jeans and flat shoes so you can go "stomp divots" at half time.  There ARE people that dress up and they are very welcome, but I suggest comfort. 3.  I don't know the game?  No worries here.  The announcers at both clubs are supurb at explaining what is goi...

Polo Fields are HUGE..one of the reasons there are so many other activities held on them.  Soccer games, weddings, LaCross and this weekend only, the International Dog Show! This is a yearly event held at the Empire Polo Fields in Indio, Calif.  They are expecting approx. 10,000 people to attend this year!  Unbelievable.  I have to say it's very organized and there is a ton of parking.  If you are planning on attending, be sure to use the entry off of Monroe Avenue in Indio.  It's all set up for easy access into the club and there is a ton of parking available.  Parking attendants and people that can help you figure out where to go if you are a participant and also if you are just there to watch a few classes.  While you're visiting town, you might want to look at properties for sale.  ...

The industry has gone through some pretty major changes over the past 6 years. Many Realtors have entered and left the business over that time. Interestingly enough, it is the same strong agents who have always performed 90% of the business prior to the shake up in the market that are once again at the forefront. It has always been my priority to follow the golden rule with my fellow colleagues in the real estate industry (customers, agents, escrow, title, and the public). I have discovered a lovely by product of treating other Realtors with kindness, patience, making myself accessible, promptly returning phone calls, and an overall genuineness that not only promotes a positive image in the community it also helps during multiple offer situations (when the agent guides their client as t...

There's a street in Indio that rivals the beauty of the exclusive Clancy Lane in Rancho Mirage.  Avenue 49.  Not alot of people are aware of it, which the residents of this West Indio street like!  The street runs East West connecting the Eastern edge of La Quinta at Jefferson to the Western edge of Indio at Monroe.  It is only 2 lanes, and has a walking path running along it's edge, lined with a white fence.  The landscape is desert friendly, low water and maintenance with Mesquite trees, hedges and desert flowers artfully planted. There are several gated, non-golf course communities along the street.  Montage at Santa Rosa is one of them.  Large homes ranging from approx. 2800 sf to approx. 4800 sf are of Tuscan exteriors.  The lots are large, ranging from approx. 10,000 sf to approx....
