We are Kay & Dean Peterson and we are ‘The Peterson Team’ at our own company…. Marvelous Desert Homes, Inc. We are full time Real Estate Professionals and residents in the beautiful desert community of Monterey Country Club in Palm Desert California. We are licensed and insured and uniquely qualified to watch over your property while you are away. We trust you will find our qualifications and our company, Sun Chasers Property Services, the perfect solution for your 2nd home and/or vacation rental property when you are not here.
I am a semi-retired professional with a long history of career accomplishments, I have a BS in Financial Administration from Michigan State University (and I truly bleed Green & White)….. In addition to a number of other “past lives”, I am a trained Machinist, a trained Home Inspector, and a licensed Realtor in the State of California. Kay and I are the owners of Marvelous Desert Homes, Inc. doing business under the brokerage of HomeSmart Professionals in Palm Desert. I have a “can do” attitude, I am conscientious and I can figure out how to fix most anything, if I can’t fix it I can find the person who can. I have owned and operated a number of businesses over the years. I will keep a sharp eye on your property and communicate to you any potential problems that may come up while your home is under our care. I am available and qualified to oversee any and all of your contractors and advise you on the status of their work.
I am a Real Estate professional and enjoy living the desert lifestyle full time and enjoy the beautiful desert with my husband Dean. I have lived most of my life in Southern California and have owned 3 different rental properties in the Palm Springs and Palm Desert communities over an 11 year period including one at Monterey Country Club before becoming a full time resident. I understand the challenges of leaving my vacation home empty and hoping my neighbors and rental agents would watch over these properties while I was away. Unfortunately, more than once I returned to my home only to be shocked with disasters that could have been avoided. I saw a need for a service that would eliminate that uneasy feeling and confirm that my valuable investment was in good condition and ready for my return.
In addition to being a full time Realtor here in the desert, I hold a certificate from the Interior Design Institute of Newport Beach California, a certification as a Professional Home Stager & Re-Designer from the Home Staging Resource in San Diego and and have worked for 25 years as a professional in the convention industry. How can this help you?…. I have a great eye for design and property value and in addition to helping you buy or sell property in the beautiful Coachella Valley I am also available for additional services to help you beautify your home. I can help you re-fresh your home for your rental clients, I can advise you on furniture placement and work with you to make your home even more attractive.
