    Dedicated to Your Complete Satisfaction.  On one end of the spectrum, Deirdre specializes in luxury real estate, country clubs, and hard-to-sell properties.  As a result she has sold some of the most expensive homes in the area.  Yet, regardless of property type or value, she and her team are fully committed to providing every client with a high level of expertise and responsiveness. Deirdre’s motto says it all: “Luxury Real Estate Services in Every Price Range.”

    So, whether you’re an investor, local or overseas client, Deirdre is focused on being aware of your needs and then communicating with quick responses and solutions to every issue.

    Your Wants & Needs Fulfilled.  But Deirdre’s unique magic is being a “real estate matchmaker” who gets to know each client personally so she can pair them up with the community and home that best suit their lifestyles and needs.  With her exceptional local knowledge, Deirdre can suggest everything from the top schools and most challenging golf courses to the most spectacular hiking trails and natural wonders.

    Another thing that makes Deirdre unique is her love of architecture and design.  Accordingly, she has a knack for zeroing in on what makes each home exceptional and understands how that will impact its pricing and how well it will fulfill your needs.  Her affiliation with Compass Real Estate has given her access to industry-leading technology and market insights to enhance and expedite your real estate transaction.

    About Deirdre.  Deirdre is a passionate horsewoman and resides in the equestrian area of Rancho Mirage with her husband, Alan.  They have two children who are full-time college students.  Deirdre is a past board member of the Desert Aids Project in Palm Springs and the ABC Drug and Alcohol Recovery Center in Indio. She and her team have also volunteered time to help feed the hungry at a local Food Bank.

    When Deirdre is not working, she’s likely riding horses, hiking with her dogs, skiing or spending vacation time in Montana …where she actively works to prevent the manmade pollution of rivers and lakes.
