Testimonials

Allison & Gerry F – Winnipeg, Manitoba Canada
We used Holly’s Homes this past year for our monthly March vacation and were very pleased with the seamless way Holly, Dani and their staff handled our transaction from rental agreement through to occupancy of our rental condo in Desert Princess. As Canadian snowbirds arrangements made from far can be somewhat stressful but through every step of the way we found great comfort in the professional way she and her staff handled the transaction. The condo was as expected and the limited issues we had were immediately dealt with to our satisfaction. We enjoyed our stay immensely and would highly recommend using Holly’s Homes in the future.


Floyd and Pat Damon – 16 Year homeowners at Desert Princess

We have known Holly since November of 1999. Holly helped us find a lot on West Laguna Drive. She helped us pick out a model of home that was just right for us. We moved into our home in 2000. We have spent 16 wonderful years from November to May of each year. We recently needed to sell our home. Because of Holly’s continued interest, kindness and attention to detail, we asked Holly to sell our home. She did a very committed job of selling our home quickly. We truly miss Holly and her team (Dani, Pam, Gena and Natalie.) We can recommend Holly and her team without any reservation.
Thank you again Holly!


John and Florence Harrison – Desert Princess Homeowners

We appreciated Holly’s Homes Concierge Services this summer for 2 1/2 months and would recommend you to anyone who has this need. It really takes the stress off while we travel knowing that trained people are watching our investment.

Thank you that you provide such a professional service at Desert Princess Country Club


Cynthia Grissom and Jeff Putnam, MN Homeowners

My husband and I purchased a second home, a mid-century modern gem in Palm Springs and decided we would rent it out as a vacation rental until we officially became “Snowbirds”. I did my due-diligence and interviewed four local companies in the Palm Springs area. I chose Holly Markas of Holly’s Homes due to her professionalism, her savvy insight of the Palm Springs market, her awesome team of Dani and Pam, and most importantly, I knew she had my best interests at heart. I could not be more pleased with our collaboration. Not only is my home in good hands with Holly, Dani and Pam, but it is rented out for the season at my specifications. Hands down, Holly’s Homes is simply the best!

Holly and her sales, rental and concierge services team–Gena, Dani, Pam and others– have helped us through the 2013 sale of our Desert Princess condo, the simultaneous purchase of a new one. Then the renovation and seasonal rental of our new place, and now they also provide fabulous concierge service during the off season when we can’t be there. What more could you ask for? Holly and her team have been great throughout: on the ball, friendly and detail-oriented. If buying, selling or renting at the Desert Princess, Holly truly sets the gold standard. As a 14-year owner at the DP, I can speak from experience! No one else comes close.

Holly sold our one-bedroom condo in ONE day, and negotiated a fantastic deal on a magnificently located two-bedroom, taking care of all the details. She and her team have become like family; they care about us personally, not just as business clients. I’ve recommended Holly to other family members who may soon be moving to the Desert Princess, and can give them the highest recommendation (speaking like a professor). Go Holly, Gena, Dani and Pam!

Dear Holly,

I wanted to take a minute to thank you for the extraordinary brokerage service you provided for me when selling and then buying my new home at the Desert Princess in June of 2007.

It is amazing to me that you pulled off a “miracle” as I was in escrow in one home, but found a home more suited to my needs and desires during the process.  You were able to find a buyer for the home I was in escrow on, sell her home in a day and help me purchase my dream home all in a matter of a few months.

Holly, you offer efficient, reliable service and expert advice.  I have known you since first meeting in 2000 when I purchased my first home at the Desert Princess and I have always appreciated your responsiveness, pleasant attitude and patience during the sale and purchase process.

Thank you for all your exceptional efforts over the years.  I would recommend you to anyone who is in need of a top-notch broker/agent.


Allen Dumont, M.D. – I am a resident of Michigan. Over the last several years I have retained Holly Holmes to be my agent for buying and selling condo’s at Desert Princess.  During that time I have bought three condo’s and sold two of them.  My experience with my first purchase made me a believer in Holly.  I can’t imagine dealing with any other agent.

Holly is professional, honest, friendly and extremely effective without using any hard-sell tactics. Dealing with Holly is effortless, and I was always confident that everything, down to the last detail, would be taken care of.  If you are in the market to do any buying or selling, you would be crazy not to use Holly.
