From Condos to Castles,
I'm Wendy Campbell, an experienced real estate agent affiliated with Power Brokers International, and I'm a full-time resident of the desert. I can assist you whether you are buying or selling property in any desert city including La Quinta, Indian Wells, Palm Desert, Indio, Rancho Mirage, Palm Springs, Bermuda Dunes, Cathedral City, Thousand Palms, and Desert Hot Springs.
The desert is a multi-faceted housing market: resort, second home, and more and more: year-round. During the winter months, this area only competes with Hawaii and south Florida for the most desirable place to be in the United States. Only Fresno, Victorville and Sacramento have a lesser median priced home -- and the desert is a true paradise on earth for eight months of the year-- a home to celebrities, statesmen, industry leaders, and everyone who loves this area.
No matter what type of property you are interested in buying, I can assist you in achieving your real estate goals. I have successfully helped investors, second home buyers, first time buyers, as well as sellers of luxury homes, investment properties, regular home re-sales, as well as short sales and foreclosures, which are a much reduced part of the market these days.
Sellers can count on me to have continuous open houses every weekend until their property sells. I also pitch my listings at both Palm Springs and California Desert Area agents meetings. You will have lots of exposure on the internet on over 50 real estate websites. I prospect for buyers every day from my extensive database of qualified buyers for my listings.
Buyers often contact me for guidance when seeking to buy real estate here in the desert. I network at a variety of events, not only at real estate events but also many art and polo events. I look at the MLS every day and go to see many properties every week to keep up to date on the inventory here in the desert. I also work with a team of proven experts in the real estate business, including escrow and title services, as well as home inspection services and more.
DID YOU KNOW?
The Coachella Valley / Palm Springs has been named the #2 spot for retirees!
CNNMoney.com and Money Magazine has ranked the Palm Springs area No. 2 of the top 25 BEST PLACES to retire in the U.S. It will be featured in the October issue of Money Magazine. Some of the factors include: local amenities, home prices (especially since the drop in prices after the recent housing bust) and the percentage of population over the age of 50. The list includes a look at the perks and the "bang for your buck" that retirees can expect to find here in the Coachella Valley, including the desert cities of not only Palm Springs, but also Indian Wells, La Quinta, Palm Desert, Rancho Mirage, Indio, Bermuda Dunes, Cathedral City and more.
And Everything In Between, You'll Find A Piece of Paradise!

2BD/2BA with south-facing views of greenbelt, mountains and pool:
Offered turn-key furnished for: $179,000 > SOLD for $160,000!
Very cute and has desirable south-facing exposure with wonderful peaceful views of an expansive greenbelt, the pool and mountains in the distance! In a quiet, interior location. Low HOA of $390/mo., covers everything (except for golf and/or tennis, which is available through the clubhouse!)
I represented both the Seller and the Buyers in this transaction and both were thrilled with the outcome!
The Seller told me on numerous occassions that I was a "Godsend" and that she really appreciated my advice with regards to what she needed to do in order to get the condo sold (the tenant had to leave and the place had to be cleaned to be immaculate for showings at any time with no notice, for instance). She also was happy that I recommended excellent services to her and coordinated everything. After only 24 days on the market, the condo was in escrow! The buyers were thrilled with their purchase which they called "The Jewel", and were excitedly picking new paint colors! They showed their appreciation for my help in making the transaction a smooth one with a bottle of Viognier from Robert Hall Vineyards, which is in their hometown of Paso Robles! I just love it when everyone is happy all around! :-)
