Doesn’t this just FEEL good..inviting?
Feng Shui; What IS it??? Basically, it’s that flow, that ease of motion that you feel the moment you enter a space. I had a client that told me from the get go, that he wouldn’t waste my time looking at homes he didn’t like. And he meant it! He would let me open the front door, lean inside, and we would be “in”, or we would “Forget it Kim!”. He was sensitive to Feng Shui, which literally means “wind” and “water” in Chinese-the basic elements of the Earth.
The Living Desert in South Palm Desert-Green education starts here!
Green is the new, well not so new, buzzword when it comes to buying or remodeling your home. Here in the desert cities, we have a shortage of standing inventory in many sectors. That situation has spurred homeowners to hit the Remodeling Track with gusto. The environment is becoming more and more important to most home buyers, and Locals are extremely aware of our fragile desert ecosystem, creating a huge new understanding of Green, and how important it is. How lucky we are to have educational venues such as South Palm Deserts’ spectacularly popular, Living Desert, where you can experience first hand that delicate balance. When it comes to flooring in your new home, there are a variety of Green choices. For local desert property information, give Kim Kelly a call at 760-285-3578.
Enjoy life in one of our desert cities, golf, sun, polo, hiking…
In 1921, Walter Morgan, a wealthy San Franciscan aristocrat, purchased 1,400 acres in the Coachella Valley, to create a secluded retreat where guests could “take in the sun” and be pampered in seclusion. Not much has changed since then. For instance, the Valley boasts almost 125 golf courses and the La Quinta Resort and Spa retains the charm of the Deserts’ Spanish-style, featuring a 23,000-square-foot spa, all awash in the fragrances of citrus trees and over 700,000 flowers. Kim Kelly, professional Realtor for over 18 years, is qualified to tell you about the luxury destinations of the Valley. Kim can be reached at (760) 285-3578.
5 Acre Equestrian Estate just 1.7 miles from Coachella Music Festival grounds
51600 Jackson St., Indio, CA., $1,649,000 I rarely get a Listing that is as timely as this piece of desert Land.

One is a custom home built in 2008, and the other is an income producing Guest home. The LOCATION is what really makes this property a standout..approx. 1.5 miles from the Coachella Valley Music Festival! Why is that so important?

Stalking a local Desert City Agent in the summer
Summer Sales in the Desert Cities of the Coachella Valley, are much different than many Sellers may think, according to local real estate agent, Kim Kelly. Living in the desert year round and working as a local real estate agent, gives you a unique perspective on Summer Sales here in the desert. There are fewer showings, true, but the season no longer ends after the Coachella Music Festivals leave town. Palm Springs Life has kindly gathered market statistics for the desert cities of Indian Wells, La Quinta, Palm Desert, Palm Springs and Rancho Mirage. These are our largest desert cities, so remember that our summer sales in Cat City, Indio, Coachella and Thermal are not even considered..and there are summer sales in all those cities as well! To schedule your tour of any Desert Cities homes, give Kim Kelly a call at 760-285-3578.
Wide Open Spaces in the desert
Are Chinese Investors headed our way??? It would seem that we are on their radar. Chinese cash is flooding American Real Estate markets. I have many clients from Vancouver, B.C., and have been hearing of the influx of big money into Canada for the past several years. The Coastal cities, San Francisco, and New York and Manhattan of course, have seen their share of mega dollars from the Chinese as well. Texas appears to be a new frontier, according to some because of it’s wide open spaces. Hmmm…is desert land in our Coachella Valley on the Chinese radar, asks Kim Kelly, local Realtor specializing in Land and Equestrian properties in the Coachella Valley.
