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!!
I Feel So Lucky to Have Found Town Real Estate…
I feel so lucky to have found Kevin Stern when I was buying a home in the Palm Springs area! We were relocating from far away, and needed someone to help us understand all the ins and outs of the desert market. Kevin really delivered — he has this incredibly vast knowledge of the Coachella Valley, along with a great personality, and a way of making you feel like you’re his only client! He got to know us and what we wanted in a home, then helped us zoom in on our dream place in just a few days of house-hunting. Super organized. Filled with info about the desert. And above all, he seems like he really enjoys his job…it’s a joy spending time with him during the housing search, and when it came for all the mundane documents and closing, he guided us step by step even though we were still living hundreds of miles away…and he ensured a smooth closing and a totally stress-free experience throughout the process. Thank you Kevin!

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.
