Throwback Thursday: I've Got My Eyes on You!  The California Desert cities, such as Palm Springs, Palm Desert, La Quinta and Rancho Mirage are about 2 hours from our house in Carlsbad. We've enjoyed many visits - there's lots to do with some great dining. On one particular weekend trip back in July 2017 we went from 75 degrees at the coast to 107 in the desert in just 2 hours. We had dinner our first night on El Paseo (often called the Rodeo Drive of the desert) in Palm Desert, then went for a walk to enjoy the sunset and the storefronts. The Louis Vuitton Store had an amazing window display...those eyes actually moved...which, well, caught our eye. Too bad it was too late to shop at this luxury brand, but much better for the wallet. Pretty eye-catching, no?!

Selling Real Estate During COVID-19Wow is all I can say about March 2020. I'm sure everyone can relate. The month started out as another great month and it appeared 2020 was going to be another fabulous year for our real estate business. In hind site, I guess what people say is true, we are never guaranteed tomorrow... it sure feels like that these days.Lets back track a little bit...On March 19, Governor Newsom and the State Public Health Officer issued Executive Order N-33-20 requiring all Californians to stay home except as needed to maintain continuity of operations in 16 infrastructure sectors. The real estate industry was NOT exempt from this prohibition. I thought to myself, what does this mean for the two new listings I had already been working on for the last couple of weeks?Fo...

Organic Restaurants in Palm Desert, CA If you are looking for local farm to table food in Palm Desert look no further.
