Satisfied Real Estate Buyers Tell the Story

We spoke with several brokers in the Coachella Valley before deciding to work with Elisa Mederos. Our decision was based on the fact that she had 14 years of proven real estate experience and truly understood what our objectives and criteria were in finding the perfect vacation home. Living in San Francisco, we knew that purchasing a property 500 miles away would present some challenges.

We initially introduced ourselves over the phone, but Elisa took it a step further and followed up with a short video of herself expressing how much she looked forward to meeting us in person and helping us find that perfect property. This might sound insignificant to some, but it was a nice gesture to place the voice with the face and listen her genuine sincerity. During the course of the next week, we communicated 24/7. She shared her expert knowledge of various resort communities that we were interested in, answered all of our questions and even provided us a crash course on Desert Living 101. After careful consideration, we were able to narrow down our list of 30 potential properties to 10. When we finally met Elisa in person, we instantly bonded. She was very amicable, enthusiastic and was prepared to provide us with all the necessary material signifying each property. We wasted no time and immediately set out on our home tour journey. Our trust and confidence in Elisa was repeatedly validated throughout the following weeks. She was on top of every detail which reassured us that she was 100% committed to working on our behalf every step of the way.

It didn’t take long for us to decide on our dream vacation home. Elisa saved us time and money without us having to make unnecessary trips to the desert. She went so far as providing additional video footage of the property, measurements of the various outdoor living spaces and answered additional questions regarding the resort community, HOA and City of Palm Desert. When it finally came down to making an offer, Elisa was our master negotiator and our initial offer was immediately accepted.

Elisa knows a vast network of professionals in the finance, insurance and home inspection industry which helped to ensure a quick close.

Without any hesitation, we would recommend Elisa Mederos as a trustworthy real estate agent. She is 100% committed, very knowledgeable, has the utmost integrity in working on her clients’ behalf and truly a pleasure to work with!

We were referred by a good friend to Elisa when looking for a winter home in Palm Springs. As Canadians, we needed lots of help in understanding the market and the different neighbourhoods. Elisa was wonderful – knowledgeable, patient and personally invested in making sure we purchased the right home for us. We highly recommend Elisa.

When it comes to real estate agents they don’t come any better than Elisa Mederos. Honestly, THEY DO NOT GET ANY BETTER!!!!. When you first meet Elisa you are instant family. When looking for our home in the desert we drove from Los Angeles to meet her and were met with her smiling face and a house-hunting schedule that suited us perfectly. We saw 10 homes the first day, which sounds improbable but totally worked for us and #10 was our gem.

We finished the task with 4 viewings the next day and were able to go back and see our favorites. The search went like clockwork and we enjoyed every moment of it. Elisa had created a perfect home buying situation. She was beyond knowledgeable and helped make the process as enjoyable as possible. Even the escrow, which can be painful, was as gentle on us as could be thanks to Elisa. If we sound like we are gushing a bit much it is because we are and it is truly deserved.

Elise is friendly, honest, efficient and genuinely cares about the welfare of her clients.

She has access and use of comparable properties that gave us the opportunity to make a valid offer on interested properties. Making an offer on properties is one of the most emotional decisions a couple makes in their lives. Elise guides one through these emotional times in a knowledgeable and professional manner that eases ones doubts and fears.


Elisa was so helpful and patient with Alan and I! The first time we viewed homes with her was August 2011. We spent the entire day in the sweltering heat. She maintained a professional and pleasant demeanor all day long! She researched more homes to view that night and we turned around and repeated the previous days experience the following day. Although we were melting in the heat, we laughed and enjoyed Elisa thoroughly. We will forever go back to Elisa for future purchases and will highly recommend her to friends and family. You will not be disappointed if you choose to have Elisa Mederos as your Real Estate Agent!

We have been vacationing in Palm Springs for 25 years and decided that when my husband retired this is where we would want to live. We were out looking at homes and wanted to see one. Elisa was the realtor listed so we called and she was attentive right away. We wanted to purchase a second home for our retirement. She was awesome, she would send us emails of homes to look at and we would come up on the weekends to view them. She was always on top of everything. We found our home in Jan. And she took care of everything for us, so all we had to do was sign papers when we got here. We would highly recommend her to our family and friends.


Elisa is an absolute delight to work with - she represents you with professionalism and respect for all parties concerned. she is savvy and understands the marketplace. she is an 11 on a scale of 1 to 10.


Elisa was patient and worked with us over a three year period during our brief visits to the area. She quickly determined what we thought we were looking for and did not waste time, on properties that were outside our target. I have worked with many agents over the years, and always felt Elisa had our best interests in mind. I would not hesitate to recommend Elisa to anyone.
