Just a brief note to tell you what a truly rewarding experience we had with the purchase of our second home. Marilyn and her team were so helpful. Marilyn helped us step by step through all the paperwork. She was on top of everything and just a pleasure to work with. We would recommend Ford Properties, especially Marilyn, to anyone interested in purchasing a property.
Ernie & Karen Kabaluk, Menlo Park, CA



The service was outstanding, professional and an enjoyable experience. We continue to receive helpful advice as we settle into the community. Thank you. You will be recommended whenever possible!
Ed & Carol Dean, Kirkland, WA



We found Marilyn to be knowledgeable, efficient, competent, professional, helpful, creative in "making a deal", friendly and innovative. We have recommended her to friends and will use FORD PROPERTIES in the future. Thanks, Marilyn, for your persistence.
Michael & Patricia Brustkern, Seattle, WA



Thank you for the professional service in selling our home. We enjoyed your manner of dealing with a down market and the advice on selling in a competitive market. We appreciated the detailed contact you maintained with us during the time our property was listed and the sale completion. We highly recommend your service!
Curt & Lorraine Holmquist, Hendersonville, NC



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.
Anthony Cosso & Gina Foxx, Martinez, CA



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



Thank you for all your continuing help with our new home. Your professional demeanor and experience in real estate is well noted. You showed us homes in our price range while listening to our "wish" list.
John & Doris Talma Cotuit, MA



We really appreciate all your efforts on our behalf. We've never had an agent that worked so creatively and diligently to close a deal. We would recommend and use your services again.
Randy & Geneil Roberts, Palm Desert, CA



Ford Properties did a great job for me. They were available, accommodating and honest with all our dealings. Thanks for a great job!
Pamela Harwell, Gallatan Gateway, Montana



I want to 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.
Liana Zepeda, Palm Desert, CA



Superb, wonderful, efficient, knowledgeable, easy and fun! Everything the Real Estate purchase should be, yet seldomly is.
Patrick & MaryJane Clancy, Palm Desert, CA



You are great, know your business and make Buying and Selling enjoyable. Thank you so much for helping us. We refer you to all.
Ed & Marilyn Buchman



Thank you for your very professional handling of the sale of our Ironwood property. Your team is very helpful and responsive to our needs. We particularly appreciate your knowledge of the market and the community. Marilyn, you are an "energizer bunny"! You worked hard for us and stayed actively involved with the sales process. Thank you and we will miss you!
Penny & Richard Campanero, Las Vegas, NV



I was very pleased with the service I received from Ford Properties with David Alexander as my Realtor. David was very professional and kept everything proceeding in a timely manner. If the occasion occurs I will recommend Ford Properties and David Alexander! Thanks again for Ford Properties help.
Eugene Diepholz, Palm Desert, California



As a Real Estate Broker myself, I've been in contact with many Agents and Brokers over the years. Marilyn Ford represented me and my Husband on the sale of our Ironwood Condo and I'm happy to say she exhibited the highest professionalism and worked very hard to achieve our goals. She offered wise counsel and I would never hesitate to recommend Marilyn and her Company for Real Estate Representation. Thanks Marilyn!
Pam Carleton



Dear Marilyn-As I told you via phone I appreciate your time and effort in selling my home. I am very pleased you sold it so quickly and I hope the new Owners will enjoy it as much as Gene and I have. Also, thanks to the Rental Dept. Kitty & Maureen. All of you have been so kind. Hello to Bob. He and Gene had good visits.
Ruth Bartow



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



Marilyn, Our experience with you was excellent in every respect! Thank you!
Alan Seidner, Palm Desert, CA



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 as Open House. The Ford Properties staff was there with cheerful help anytime we needed something from them. 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.
Sherm & Carol Manchester, Novato, CA



Many thanks! We had a very good experience buying our new Desert home! Looking forward to being at Ironwood! Barb is great!
The Sharvanians



One of the smoothest, well negotiated, well navigated escrow processes we have experienced. Dave is an individual in whom we place our full confidence and trust. When we list our current property, we will go with Dave again. Very professional and knowledgeable and knows how to deal with people, as well as numbers. Thanks Dave!
Jan & Dan Forbush, Palm Desert, CA



Kitty was absolutely fabulous! Her assistance during the whole process was invaluable. She has a kind & caring way about her that was greatly appreciated. I would highly recommend Kitty and your team in a heartbeat! Thanks again for all that you have done!!
M. Hansen, Rancho Mirage, CA



Working with Dave was a pleasure! We will definitely use his services for any future real estate transactions.
Dave Foley, Palm Desert, CA



Bev Howard was a delight to work with on the sale of 73556 Dalea Lane!
Tom & Leslie Lowman



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 area 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 about properties available, knows Ironwood Country Club well, including property values, was never over anxious trying to sell me something and showed me around the Club. She 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!
Steve Wahlbridge



Beverly Howard did a great job selling our house even with some difficulties with the Tenants. She is great and we will use services again should we buy in Palm Desert.
The Rubin's Palm Desert



We were so lucky to have Marilyn Ford as our Real Estate Broker. Her knowledge of the marketplace, advice on pricing and counsel during the sale of our property, made the entire process a success. Thank you so much for your help especially since the sale occured while we were at a remote location most of the time.
Mr. & Mrs. Feldman, Indian Wells, CA



We would like to thank Barb again! She provided help and services far above and beyond any professional I've ever done business with. So thank you again to Barb!
Bob & Maureen Suga, Sioux Falls, South Dakota



Regarding Mari Conliffe, Buyers Agent: It takes more than average skill to sell a house to someone who has never seen it.
Blair & Pam Barnette



Mari was a pleasure to work with. She did a good job for us in what proved to be a difficult and at times contentious process.
McCallen-Bauer, Palm Desert, CA



Bev again did a wonderful job for us. From showing multiple properties to great follow up even during her vacation, she demonstrated dedication, professionalism and personal care.
