The Palm Desert office, located at 44-530 San Pablo Avenue, was the donation hub, with donors filling the lobby with blankets, clothes, toiletries, baby items, pet supplies, walkers, bottled water, and more. In addition, the La Quinta office, located at 47-250 Washington Street, pitched in with a truckload of donations raised by the agents on the east end of the valley.

Lew and Cherie Colón join the Indian Wells Main office of Bennion Deville Homes
Bennion Deville Homes Indian Wells Main welcomes Lew and Cherie Colón.

Bennion Deville Homes proudly welcomes the Colón Group, spearheaded by Lew and Cherie Colón, to the Indian Wells Main office, located at 74-910 Highway 111. This dynamic husband and wife team owns decades of combined real estate experience, having worked within the industry as agents as well as owners of franchise offices. Cherie earned her real estate license in 1999 and holds a Broker’s license, while Lew earned his real estate license in 2004. The Colón Group works with buyers and sellers throughout the Coachella Valley, specializing in the communities of Rancho Mirage, Palm Desert, Indian Wells, and La Quinta. The team also serves clients in Northern California and Walla Walla, Washington.

Over the years, Lew and Cherie have risen to the top because of their unending commitment to their clients. “We have literally stopped the car on the way to the movies and made a U-turn to meet a client somewhere or handle an emergency,” Lew laughs. “We take an authentic approach with our clients, and will do anything to make sure they are happy.” Fully embracing this commitment, Lew, who is fluent in Spanish, heads up the team’s “Concierge Service,” a trusted group of referred providers who can help clients in need of services, pre- or post-transaction.  This incredible hands-on approach builds enduring bonds with their clients and has led to the majority of the team’s business coming from repeat and referral clients.

While Lew runs the concierge side of their business, Cherie tackles negotiations and contracts. “Our goal is to get the highest price possible in the least amount of time, and with the least amount of stress,” she says. “Lew and I want this transaction to be the best real estate experience our client has ever had, and we love the reward of making both the buyer and seller happy at the conclusion of a deal.” Her effective approach to communication and whip-smart business acumen give clients comfort knowing she has their best interests at heart. “Cherie genuinely cares about each and every client,” adds Lew. “She is incredibly patient with clients and upholds a strict code of ethics. Everyone adores her, even our colleagues from other companies.”

The calling card of the Colón Group is the unending commitment by Lew and Cherie to keep clients happy, which has created an enduring legacy for their brand. “Transparency and communication are the keys to doing an upstanding job for your clients. You need to be reliable and play an indispensable part by showing you care and by going above and beyond the call. We both pride ourselves on that pledge, and our clients know that when they work with us, we will do everything it takes to make sure they are satisfied before, during, and after close,” Cherie continues.

Bennion Deville Homes is the perfect home for the Colón Group because of the brokerage’s commitment to ethics and integrity. “We have worked with and known Bob [Bennion] and Bob [Deville] for a long time. They mean what they say and want us to be successful. They treat their agents like we are their clients, so why not join with the best!” Cherie says. Concludes Lew, “It is refreshing to know people with honesty and integrity. When it’s right, it’s right.”

States Managing Broker Charlie White, “Lew and Cherie are incredibly hardworking, dedicated, honest people who have built an impressive business with those elements at its bedrock. We are excited to welcome them to our Indian Wells family and look forward to working together.”

Bennion Deville Homes Welcomes Phoenicia D. Friese

September 2, 2017
Posted by: Bennion Deville News at 9:39 am
REALTOR Phoenicia D. Friese joins the Rancho Mirage office of Bennion Deville Homes
Bennion Deville Homes welcomes REALTOR Phoenicia D. Friese to the Rancho Mirage office.

Bennion Deville Homes proudly welcomes REALTOR® Phoenicia D. Friese to the Rancho Mirage office, located at 71-691 Highway 111. A Southern California native, Phoenicia works throughout San Diego and the Coachella Valley, specializing in the communities of Rancho Mirage, Palm Desert, and Encinitas. In addition to traditional residential transactions, Phoenicia specializes in vacation rentals and also works on commercial sales and leasing.

Prior to entering real estate in 2015 as an assistant to a commercial broker and earning her sales license in 2016, Phoenicia owned and operated her own business. She carries the professional insight and lessons learned from this experience into her role as a REALTOR®, where she applies her knack for negotiations, marketing, and service to help her clients accomplish what they desire. “I learned a lot running my own business,” Phoenicia says. “I am a unique, ambitious person and used those lessons as a stepping stone to get to where I am today. Advancing my abilities to network and cultivate relationships, deliver and execute successful marketing strategies, and negotiate contracts help me best represent my clients through the real estate process.” In addition to her previous success in business, Phoenicia holds an Associate’s Degree in Business Administration, providing a formal education to go with her real-world experience.

Passionate about learning, Phoenicia is constantly combing through the latest market trends and studying statistics, knowledge she passes on to her clients to make the most informed decision possible. “Providing reliable, comparative information to my clients is critical to forming a truly honest relationship and accomplishing our common goal. Being a strong resource builds trust between us and also gives us the knowledge required to get the best deal possible,” Phoenicia continues.

As an outgoing, personable professional, Phoenicia is able to connect with a broad spectrum of people, and enjoys the more personal aspects of residential real estate. “Coming from the commercial side where everyone is focused on an analytical ROI, the residential side is more emotional since purchasing a home is one of the largest investments in a person’s life. Connecting with others about homes and creating that intimate bond has been very refreshing and fulfilling for me personally.” Phoenicia also relishes the opportunity to work on a variety of real estate transactions, which piques her natural curiosity and interest in perpetual learning. “No two transactions are the same, and I enjoy that variety,” adds Phoenicia.

In addition to her passion for learning, Phoenicia loves animals and donates her time and resources to help causes that focus on animal welfare. “I have a personal passion for helping animals and love pets. Animals bring so much joy to our lives, and I want to do my part to ensure animals in need feel the same love they provide us.”

Bennion Deville Homes is the right place for Phoenicia because of the brokerage’s strong network throughout the region and arsenal of agent resources. “Bennion Deville Homes provides me with the tools necessary to keep my business going, and with strong support that allows me to focus on serving my clients. We enjoy the culture and feel of a family-owned business, but with the network and resources of a larger brokerage, which is a huge draw for me,” Phoenicia concludes.

Adds Managing Broker Don Rossignol, “Phoenicia is driven, intelligent, and possesses great business savvy. We are excited to help her advance in her real estate career and welcome her to our growing Rancho Mirage family.”
