Kevin Stern – Owner/Broker
I always try to understand the issues/challenges and then think out of the box to achieve a win/win for all parties. The goal is to always have happy clients. Always to treat others the way I wish to be treated, fairly, respectfully and creatively. In the end, I’d rather have a referral than a sale.
The bay area/San Jose is where I grew up. I always worked and was easily promoted to higher positions because of my hard work and work ethic. I found my first passion in the Travel Industry. After a 10 plus year career with a Major Fortune 500 company, I decided to go out on my own. I bought a small fledging travel agency and through hard work, many learning experiences, and a little luck, the company grew to a major player in the leisure travel sales arena.
In 2000, I lost my life partner and began to re-evaluate my life. As a result, a year later I sold the business and took some time off traveling around. I had spent several vacations in Palm Springs and decided to try it so I lived in my RV for 6 months experiencing the desert area and deciding if I wanted to make the move. During that time I got my Real Estate License and began my new career. Several years later, I received my Brokers license and opened Town Real Estate. I haven’t looked back and still to this day love living here in the Palm Springs area. It’s hard to believe it’s been over 19 years!
We at Town Real Estate and me in particularly, believe we owe it to our clients to deliver the highest in service levels. Always delivering above and beyond what one expects.
My goal is to have happy clients, and life long friends and referrals. Welcome Home!!
Professional and a Great Guy
Kevin brings a wealth of knowledge of our area and of all real estate transactions. He is professional and a great guy. We told him what we were searching for and he used his resources and found what we needed. Kevin was always available to answer questions of any kind and knows everything about listings, selling and financing. Thanks Kevin for all your hard work.
Kevin is not only an excellent real estate broker, he is also a kind and compassionate person!
When I decided to have Kevin Stern as my real estate broker to buy a home in the Palm Springs area, he seemed like all the other realtors I had over the years. Patiently taking me to all the possible homes that he thought met my criteria for a beautiful home.
What I soon learned was that Kevin was quite different and stood out from the others. This became apparent when I decided to accept an offer of a home. As we were walking out, Kevin said, “Jerry, I don’t think you’re in love with this home.” I realized right then that indeed I had doubts — yes, this home is not for me. And I withdrew my offer. Kevin quickly followed up, “I want to find you a home that you’re in love with.”
And with his patience and persistence, we finally found that home. I learned that Kevin is not merely interested in a quick sale that rewards him with a quick commission. More important to him is his need for his clients to be truly happy in their new home. Oh yes, he has also followed up in helping me with so many issues I couldn’t figure out with the new home, long after his legal obligations had ended. And still does. Kevin is not only an excellent real estate broker, he is also a kind and compassionate person.

Super experienced and knowledgeable…
Kevin is more than a realtor to us, he is now a friend for life. He has a very easy-going demeanor, yet he is highly professional and was on it every step of the way during our process. He’s super experienced and knowledgeable, and extremely helpful when you need him to be. Couldn’t be more pleasant ! I would highly recommend him for your next real estate transaction !
Professional, personal, honest…I wouldn’t consider using anyone else!
Kevin represented me in the sale of my Palm Springs home and also represented us in the purchase of our new home in Rancho Mirage. He is highly knowledgeable, professional, honest, personable and punctual. In our search for a new home, Kevin pointed out several issues of concern that the property inspector missed; for which we are grateful as it caused us to reconsider that purchase. He takes his responsibilities seriously and always goes the extra mile. Kevin is my go-to real estate broker; I wouldn’t consider using anyone else.
Honest, Knowledgeable and Experienced!

My questions were answered promptly. It was very clear to me that my satisfaction was a priority with Kevin. Kevin is extremely honest, knowledgeable, and experienced. Due to those attributes and his hardwork, Kevin made the selling of my home so easy and smooth for me. I’m happy to say that because of Kevin, I received top dollar for my home.

Kevin Stern…Knowledge, Integrity, and Results…a Problem Solver
We recently bought a home in Cathedral City and feel very lucky that we were represented by the quintessential agent that clearly knows his craft, Kevin Stern. His tag line could easily be, “Knowledge, Integrity, and Results!” I recommend him highly. He is very accessible via all forms of media…text, email, video calls, and even that old fashioned telephone. He is very responsive. He is a problem solver too. In our transaction, the sellers were represented by an agent team that was moving from one brokerage to another. That team was very unresponsive. Kevin’s persistence and business acumen were instrumental in making our transaction a success. Trust me, you won’t go wrong with Kevin Stern. BTW, I’m a former agent with many years of experience and so this recommendation comes from a place of experience.
Easy, stress free…kind, caring and respectful…
We would like very much to says how pleased we are with Kevin Stern at Town Real Estate. The process from the beginning to the end was easy, stress free, when some questions or issue came up, Kevin alway said I’ll take care of it! Kevin was kind, caring and respectful. we definitely would refer Kevin Stern to anyone we know that looking for a real estate needs. Thank you Kevin for the great service you had provided.
Very Good Experience! Kevin Made It Very Simple For Me…
I had a very good experience working with Kevin Stern. Kevin was able to find exactly what I was looking for within a very short period of time. Because I live in San Francisco, Kevin did all the documents electronically and I finished the purchase while I was outside the country. I am not very computer savvy, Kevin made it very simple for me.
Few Brokers Work as Hard For Their Clients!
My husband and I were looking to do a 1031 exchange and purchase a single family vacation rental in Palm Springs. We’ve traveled there many times on vacation and have always enjoyed it however we knew little of the various communities. We recommended him to several friends, some of whom bought their own homes in the desert with Kevin’s help and they too were completely satisfied with Kevin and Town Realty. We have bought many homes in our lifetime and can honestly say that few brokers work as hard for their clients as Kevin does. We are looking to buy additional property in the Palm Springs area in the future and will certainly use Kevin for those transactions as well.
