Marilyn, thank you for all the effort and hard work you and your Company put into selling my house. I appreciate your many phone calls, e-mails and quick stops at the house letting me know what was going on. Your professionalism, compassion and positive attitude made a very difficult time much easier. I will definitely use Ford Properties in the future!

Kitty did a very good job handling my transaction. She was very good at responding promptly to my concerns. She went "above and beyond" in the handling of the Palm Springs Fire Department smoke detector inspection.

Marilyn acted fast, professional and kept us in the loop at all times. Being out of town Buyers, she kept us informed of the market and was our ear on the ground.

Marilyn, thank you for all your help. Purchasing our new home was an absolute pleasure. No transaction has ever gone so smoothly.
Al Liebnian & Marie Burdick, Chatsworth, CA

 

Marilyn, working with you to find my perfect home away from home in Ironwood was a delightful and fun experience. I have worked with many Agents over the years, but you redefined "professionalism" You always had my best interests front and center throughout the process. You somehow found just what I was looking for and you were able to close the sale in record time...though we had our challenges, you never wavered from our objectives.
Judy Shuttleworth, Surrey BC Canada

 

Marilyn-Our experience with you was excellent in every respect! Thank you!

We completed two transactions with Bev in 2015. The most recent, the sale of our Wolfberry home happened very quickly. Because the market, particularly in HOA 12, appears slow, we considerered this to be a real accomplishment. A lot of that success is attributable to Bev's advice on timing to list and staging. She also matched the Buyers and their desires to the property. With respect to both transactions this year, the process (ie, paperwork) could not have gone more smoothly.

After 15 wonderful years in Ironwood, we decided it was time to go back home full time. Carol and I can recommend Bev Howard without reservation. She helped in every way, from negotiations to inspections. She even gave us her home to rest in, with the dog and cat, while she was showing our home or having an open house. The Ford Properties staff was there with cheerful help anytime we needed something from them. As we said, we will definitely recommend Bev and Ford Properties to anyone interested in a South Palm Desert Property, especially in the lovely area near and in Ironwood.

Good job Dave! I will recommend you!
Mr. Martin, Palm Desert CA

Mr. Mau, Palm Desert, CA

Marilyn, as always, you make everything go smoothly!
Carolyn Strand, Palm Desert, CA

 

Bev went the extra mile for me. After spending many hours over a couple of months, we finally made an offer. But only a week before I was scheduled to be out of my house, the escrow fell through. So Bev stepped up and the search began again. We got lucky and found the perfect place and closed within a few days. And in spite of all my anxiety, Bev never lost her basic good humor.
Sandra Looper-Palm Desert, CA

 

Barbara was highly recommended to me and I was not disappointed. She is knowledgeable in her craft and very helpful in guiding the ship from listing to a successful sale. Her resolve was impressive as she was dedicated to holding regular open house showings. I am pleased that she was my agent and will definitely recommend her to prospective clients. Good luck to you all going forward and many thanks for your service.
Roy Mullins, Palm Desert, CA

 

Dave went above and beyond the call of duty to facilitate the sale and closing of the house. It was a second home with none of us nearby to complete the clean out and final details associated with selling a house. Dave handled all the details! I would highly recommend him.
Anne Leahy, Palm Desert, CA

 

Couldn't be happier with the way Dave handled this transaction along with its complications. Very professional and a really great person as an added bonus!
Janice Mansfield, Palm Desert, CA

 

Our experience was pain free and pleasurable. Bev was of incredible help, understood what we were looking for and didn't waste our time showing us property that didn't fit our criteria. We love Ironwood and Bev.
The Brueckner's, Palm Desert, CA

 

We very much enjoyed working with the staff at Ford Properties. Marilyn was terrific. Very professional and extremely knowledgeable in all areas of the transaction. Selling a house and moving are stressful enough. Marilyn and her staff made this stress free. I would highly recommend them to anyone buying or selling a property.
Gary Wolfe, San Mateo, CA

 

Olivia Gazis was the most attentive, well informed Realtor I have ever worked with in purchasing a home. She is well informed of all properties available, knows Ironwood Country Club well, including it's property values and was never over anxious trying to sell me something. She showed me around the Club and even took me to the end-of-the-year party! She is a gem!
Bergerud, Palm Desert, CA

 

Barbara did a fabulous job!
The Divito's, Palm Desert, CA

 

Thank you very much for helping us every step of the way. I never want to buy a home at the same time I'm selling another! But you were great and exceeded all of our expectations. Looking forward to a long association.
Tom & Leslie Mortimer, Palm Desert, CA

 

Marilyn, You and your team did an exemplary job! I realize that you adapted to my crazy schedule and preference for working with you via e-mail. Amazingly, I never met you! Keep up the good work you do for us Wahlbridges!
