You get an A+,A+, A+, for your hard work, good taste, and the mechanics of getting around the current HOA policies for people borrowing money to buy a condo. You got the people in to clean up and present the condo in a good light. The photographer was magnificant in showing off the interior. The handling of the golfcart and electronic keyboard was very good. And the open house was a great success with many good offers. We do not know any of the details of the HOA actions in treating the situation with the buyers lenders, but appreciate you getting the acceptance done. All this with a good humor. And I would add working around the problems of the covid situation with various institutions. So include us in with your favorable sellers. Cheers, Case and Elaine Sprenkle

It's been an absolute pleasure working with Dean and Kay Peterson, both of whom have been invaluable in orchestrating the purchase of our property in Rancho Mirage, Ca. They work well together as a team and each has their own unique strengths and skill sets. They oftentimes go above and beyond the call of duty and we have no hesitation in highly recommending them for your next purchase.

By a happy coincidence, some friends of mine who live in Palm Desert happen to be longtime neighbors of Kay and Dean Peterson. When I told my friends that I was interested in purchasing a home in the desert, they immediately recommended that I meet with Kay and Dean. The minute I met them I knew I had found the agents that I wanted to work with. They seemed experienced, knowledgeable and, perhaps most importantly, a pleasure to spend time with. I genuinely enjoyed the days we spent together looking at properties and their website helped keep me apprised of any new additions to the marketplace. Kay is an expert at every aspect of real estate transactions and Dean is not only a skilled agent but also an experienced property manager who was able to answer a lot of questions about the maintenance aspects of the properties I considered. When I finally made an offer on a home, Dean insisted on being there during the inspection to make sure everything was checked thoroughly, which I really appreciated. I had a lot of questions during the escrow and inspection period and they always took my phone calls and patiently answered my questions. Buying a home can be a very stressful and complex process but thanks to Kay and Dean it felt surprisingly easy. I love my new home and will always be grateful to them.

Kay and Dean have been very successful in matching the perfect home for friends who are looking to move to the desert oasis and resort community. Kay's eye for detail and Dean's expertise in repair, maintenance, and property management spots any potential problems before they get in the way of a transaction. This TEAM effort puts you in a perfect position to close on the home of your choice with ease. Reliable and consistent and it just doesn't get any better than that.

For most people, buying a home is an extremely daunting and stressful situation. It started out that way for me. Shortly after beginning my search, I realized that locating a perfect home in a desirable location that would fit my budget wasn't going to be easy. That's where Kay's real estate experience and calming personality comes into play. Meeting Kay was totally random. Driving home from the market one afternoon I saw an open house sign and decided to stop and investigate. Although this home wasn't the right place for me, the realtor showing the home was so welcoming I stayed and spent a long time talking with her. I felt a connection with her right away. That's how Kay makes you feel, welcomed without any pressure attached. She really listens to you so she can understand your concerns and hopes She is genuinely determined to help you find that perfect place. Then, when you do find your home, Kay is a master at guiding you through the real estate maze of documents, deadlines, reports, inspections, etc. Her knowledge of this giant real estate machine is comforting and calming. I always knew she was on top of every aspect, keeping all players involved accountable and always looking out for my best interest. If you are at all considering a move, I highly recommend you contact Kay. You won't be sorry.

I'm convinced that our home sold within the first week on the market because of Kay's expertise in staging. She is honest and sincere and in her words a good shopper. She stayed within our budget and was able to make a silk purse out of a sow's ear primarily with her accessorizing and decluttering but still using what she could with what we had. She is a delight to work with and I would certainly recommend her to prepare a home for sale. Definitely a good investment. Good luck Kay and again many thanks for what you did for us. Hope to see you when we return to the desert. Hi to Dean and we appreciated all he did as well. Casey

As I was transitioning from Northern California to Southern California I met along the way Kay Peterson who had an Open House along Hwy 74. I was hesitant to go in as I was exhausted from looking at homes and just didn't feel well. Boy am I thankful I did! There to greet us was the cheery, happy, very sweet gal Kay! She was so pleasant that you instantly felt a warm connection and that she would do anything to find you the perfect home. As we walked out the door she said if you need anything here's my card and such just give me a ring I would be happy to help. I did and the rest is history. She found me the perfect home. Right location, quiet, everything I wanted to start my new life. I can't express enough that if you are looking for the right one to help guide you along the way of finding the perfect home - she is your gal! Sweet Kay! My Angel!

It is our pleasure to write an extremely positive endorsement for both Marvel "Kay" and Dean Peterson. My husband and I were visiting my sister for the Thanksgiving weekend. We were not even thinking of buying a home here in Palm Desert, but we stopped at an Open House sign and decided to have a look. Dean met us at the door, and from then on, our lives took a turn for the better. Dean was so gracious as he showed us each room of the turn key fully furnished detached condo. Living closer to the Bay Area, we were shocked at the value for the dollar. And furnished! Within a few minutes we asked Dean to be our Buyers' Agent... Could have knocked him over with a feather, as they say. Enter Kay, so friendly and efficient! We met her the next day to talk more about the escrow needs, and begin the process of buying our new second home. We had to return north, but Dean and Kay led us seamlessly through the paperwork, mostly through DocuSign. We even learned to FaceTime when Kay and Dean did our final walk through remotely. The day we arrived back to the desert, Dean and Kay met us at our new home bearing gifts of Champagne and glasses and a lovely gift box. It didn't stop there. They remembered us on Valentine's Day! Then, knowing how much we love movies, Kay called us the day before the Oscars to ask what we thought would win best picture. We are so happy with our purchase, and would highly recommend Kay and Dean to act as your agents. With fond memories and to making two new friends....

We purchased our home with the guidance and help of Kay and Dean Peterson last year. Our journey started by spending the weekend going to numerous Open Houses. Not only were we narrowing down the communities that felt like home, we wanted to find the perfect agent to facilitate our home purchase. We met Kay at the last Open House of the weekend. We chose Kay because she was not concerned with telling us why we should hire her, but instead used the opportunity to be herself and to simply have a conversation with us. After looking at so many Open Houses on our own, we were slightly overwhelmed with the numerous communities in the desert and all of the various amenities that they offered. At the end of our first meeting, Kay told us which community she thought we would like and that was exactly where we ended up purchasing our home. Throughout our transaction Kay was friendly, caring, positive, hard-working, and knowledgeable. Kay always made us her top priority and was more concerned with us finding the perfect home, rather than making a quick sale. We spent time with Dean on our second trip to the desert. We enjoyed the time we spent with Dean and immediately connected with him, as well. Dean is detail oriented, methodical, thorough and a problem solver. He kept us updated throughout our transaction and we never found ourselves uninformed or without options. Dean was proactive and efficient in every detail of our transaction. We are grateful that we happened upon Kay’s Open House and not only found our perfect home, but gained meaningful friendships.

Kay and Dean were introduced to us by some friends who had used them to buy a vacation property in Palm Springs. When we decided that we would like to buy a home in the valley, we went to Kay and Dean and from the very first meeting we were treated so amazingly well! We were trying to buy a home from two states away, and while some realtors would not even give us the time of day, Kay and Dean were superbly helpful from the beginning. They became our "boots on the ground" and were always willing to show us properties when we were in town and even using Facetime when we weren't in town. They were very honest and forthcoming and were always willing to share any concerns they had about a particular property or neighborhood. They really wanted to find the perfect home for us, rather than the first home they could sell us. I cannot fully express my gratitude for working with them. Every aspect of the process was managed so well by them both. They were even responsive and proactive when they were on vacation! And even after the sale, they have been so very gracious in helping us find contractors and other resources to help make the transition as pleasant as possible. I really cannot thank them enough and would unequivocally recommend them to anyone and everyone. Thank you so much!
