"My wife Marilyn and I wanted to write you a short note of commendation for Ms. Joan MacPherson.  Without Joan's help and expertise, we would not have ben able to close one of the most difficult and contentious escrows we have ever undertaken."


"...you really showed interest in my parents specific situation and ..you did not view them as just another commission to be earned. ...your extensive knowledge of the neighhorhood and your awarness of current market conditions sold me on the fact that you had a very good grasp on the true value of their home.  Bravo!"


"...it isn't a very elegant statement, but I find myself often saying.."she always did her homework"...the problem is finding a person with similar strengths isn't that easy."

Tom and Mary

“We have had the pleasure of being involved with Joan in two of our past real estate transactions. One, as the listing agent of a home we purchased, and the second, as our listing agent when we sold our home. In both instances, Joan proved to be professional, competent and most importantly, caring for our every need. She is knowledgeable about the market and has a large network of related professionals upon which she can call on to service any problem that may develop during the escrow period.“

Ann and Tony

“Your absolute professionalism is trumped only by your ethical and moral approach to both buyer and seller. WE slept well at night knowing we were in good hands, and that transactions were grounded in the best business practices. When we threw a curve ball concerning overseas travel in the middle of this process you calmly and professionally guided us through the process to keep in touch and provided us with tools to deal with a transaction while not interrupting our long planned travels.”


"Thank you for being the “general contractor” during the final week of closing. Your willingness to “do whatever it takes” to close the deal was a large part of this transaction. The end result is a beautiful home for my parents that met or exceeded all of their expectations. I know they will enjoy their home and the community immensely. I also wanted to thank you for all your efforts on their bell half, your professionalism and the attentions to every small detail. You are truly one in a million. Needless to say, it could not have happened without you. You will always rank “10” in my opinion."

Mary Ann

“My husband and I feel very fortunate to have met Joan. Not only will she always serve as our Realtor in the desert but also a dear friend. We highly recommend Joan to someone who would like to purchase or sell real estate in the desert. She is very knowledgeable in every aspect of this field. Anytime we had any questions or concerns, we knew we could reach her. She truly is an amazing person with a very strong work ethic.”

Frank and Kathy

“I wanted to take the time to share with you how much I appreciate all you have done in successfully marketing our home in Indian Wells. I was reflecting the other night on the number of homes l have sold in my life. What primarily came to mind was just how hard you worked and how effective you were. I have never had a Realtor work as hard as you did…never. Your persistence, the way you “managed” us and our expectations, your responsiveness to both us and your clients and how you worked with other Realtors all made this a marvelous experience.”


“I have experienced multiple real estate transactions in my seventy plus years; happily all my requests and expectations were successfully realized with this recent experience.”

Barbara and Randy

“Your process was detailed, efficient and with the utmost professionalism. We love our new home. Joan, you are at the top of the list for referrals. Thank you so very very much!”

Larry and Lillian

“Words alone cannot fully express our heartfelt gratitude and thanks to Joan for handling the sale of our home. What began as a simple listing, resulted into a rather difficult sale and escrow. Joan was always professional, knowledgeable and helpful in every way, resulting into the successful sale of our home. Truly, Joan is not only an excellent agent, but is now a most valued true friend of ours.”


"Joan is the best. Selling my home ended up a nightmare for everyone. 4 deals cancelled for a house that really had nothing big wrong with it. Joan was a true professional, who always gave me her best. I don't think I would have made it through the last two years without her help and her fantastic staff. Bless all of you. A very happy customer who recommends her to anyone who wants an honest and true professional. And I hope a lifelong friend."

Al and Erika

"It was a big decision. Should we contact a big reality company to list our home for sale or should we check out Joan McPherson, recommended by our daughter Trudy. After checking out both we chose Joan because she knew the market very well and was a good communicator. The market in Palm Desert was slow and we had to wait a few months before closing. Joan was always available with wisdom and help about the details. We would certainly choose her again if we had something to sell. "


"We contacted Joan wanting to find a condo on short notice. Because we were in the middle of a 1031 Exchange we had one week to identify a property that would work for us and that week included a holiday. After talking with us about our needs Joan found properties for us to look at that were just what we wanted. We chose one, made the offer, and closed the deal in about 60 days. We were more than pleased with the service and professionalism displayed by both Joan and her assistant Mary. We highly recommend Joan to any future buyer or seller."


"We were out of town buyers which made the process a little tougher. However, we were referred to Joan by my dad, who had bought his home many years before. He spoke glowingly of her and we would absolutely do the same. Joan made the process stress-free for us. We always felt that we were in the best hands possible. Joan's assistant Mary Ames was also first class. She stepped right in when necessary and always made us feel important. I couldn't recommend Joan and Mary more. They are the dynamic duo of the desert!"
