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!!
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.
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.
I Would Not Hesitate to Recommend…
Kevin and his team were Johnny on the Spot with every aspect of my property purchase. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone for their property needs in Palm Springs.
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.
A Level of Personal Service You Won’t Find in a Giant Real Estate Firm…
Kevin is an exceptional realtor and a great guy…very kind and helpful…and extremely knowledgeable about the greater palm springs area. I can’t recommend him highly enough. He brings a level of personal service you won’t find in a giant real estate firm. It was like having a friend who could assist you through the maze of a real estate transaction. He guided us with patience, and brought a deep understanding of the desert communities and a ton of knowledge about all the things that make the area unique: fee vs leased land, HOA fees, pool and utility costs, helpful info on local lenders, and a bunch of little tips that made the overall experience much more informed. There was no hard sell or rush to make a decision — instead, he worked to focus in on what we really wanted — then he honed in on properties that fit the bill. He made those hours of house-hunting a joy and wonderful learning experience.
