Bennion Deville Homes Palm Desert San Pablo Agents & Staff Celebrate Ahu Kocaballi's Recent United States Citizenship
Agents and staff of the Bennion Deville Homes Palm Desert San Pablo office celebrated with REALTOR Ahu Kocaballi, who recently became a United States citizen.

Wednesday, April 19, 2017 was a momentous day for Ahu Kocaballi of Bennion Deville Homes’ Palm Desert San Pablo office. She and her husband officially became United States citizens after moving to the country from Turkey, Ahu in 2007 and her husband several years prior. “The United States is our home already,” Ahu glows. “As a family, we want to keep contributing to our society to the fullest. It is a privilege to officially be a part of this magnificent country.” In all, the process took Ahu and her husband 14 years.

REALTOR Ahu Kocaballi recently became a United States citizen. Her fellow agents, along with the staff at Bennion Deville Homes Palm Desert San Pablo, celebrated with her.
REALTOR Ahu Kocaballi and her fellow agents at the Bennion Deville Homes Palm Desert San Pablo office celebrated her recent citizenship with a delicious cake.

Moving from Istanbul, where she practiced Orthodontics, to the resort town of Palm Desert was a major shift for Ahu. “It was a huge transition for me to move from a big, cosmopolitan city to a small one and start a new life and career. Different culture, different people, different food, and a different field. However, I am very passionate about my real estate career and being a part of the Bennion Deville Homes family.”

“We are so proud and honored to share in this moment with Ahu,” says Managing Broker Tish Herwig. “Our office is a family, so when one of our family members accomplishes a huge feat, we want to celebrate. Becoming a U.S. citizen is a monumental occasion and we couldn’t be happier for Ahu and her family.”

Bennion Deville Homes Welcomes Kevin Stanley to Palm Springs Main

May 20, 2017
Posted by: Bennion Deville News at 7:17 am
REALTOR Kevin Stanley joins the Palm Springs office of Bennion Deville Homes
Bennion Deville Homes welcomes REALTOR Kevin Stanley to the Palm Springs Main office.

Bennion Deville Homes is proud to welcome REALTOR® Kevin Stanley to the Palm Springs Main office, located at 850 North Palm Canyon Drive. Kevin began his real estate career in Chicago in 1993 and moved to the Coachella Valley after visiting the area for years. Kevin joins NDC Homes, spearheaded by REALTOR® Neil Curry, working with buyers and sellers throughout the Greater Palm Springs Area.

As a longtime industry professional, Kevin is well-versed in the nuances of real estate. In addition to residential sales, he has a wealth of experience in property management and commercial office and retail leasing, which he gained on Chicago’s famous “Magnificent Mile” along Michigan Avenue. “Real estate, regardless of the branch you are practicing, is all about communication,” Kevin states. “Being able to clearly set expectations with clients and pinpoint their needs by asking the right questions is critical to success.”

Employing a strong real estate and sales background gives Kevin the perfect lens through which he can best serve his clients. “I enjoy working with clients from all walks of life and connecting with them on a personal level to build a solid rapport and show I genuinely care about them. My style is conversational so my clients are comfortable and know that I see them as more than just a client – I see them as a lifelong friend. In this manner, I can also answer any questions they may have about the process and how I leverage my background to their benefit.”

Coming from commercial real estate and property management sets Kevin apart because he has a complete scope of the real estate picture. His property management background primed him for running a business and keeping an eye on the little details that create the biggest impact. In addition, he has always had a keen interest in architecture and design, especially Mid-Century Modern homes and history, and relishes the opportunity to use that interest in a professional manner. All of this works in his clients’ favor to create an enjoyable, smooth real estate transaction process. “By blending my real estate background with my enjoyment of helping with others and personal interests, I strive to deliver an enjoyable experience and optimal results.”

Beyond his passion for real estate, Kevin loves the Southern California desert lifestyle and the ample opportunity to enjoy the great outdoors and laid back atmosphere. “Hitting the trails for a hike, exploring the mountains and canyons, taking a dip in the pool, and delighting in the fine dining options are all elements of Palm Springs and the surrounding communities that make it such a unique, exceptional place to live. The best part of real estate is sharing that joy and pride of our lifestyle with others and matching them up with the right abode so they may enjoy it as well.” As a direct result, Kevin is highly involved in local events and organizations, spending time volunteering at the Palm Springs Health and Fitness races, Modernism Week, Palm Springs Historical Society, Palm Springs Preservation Foundation, and is a member of the Palm Springs Chamber of Commerce.

Kevin is excited to join Bennion Deville Homes because of the brokerage’s respected, well-known brand and established presence as the Coachella Valley market leader. “Bennion Deville Homes is highly regarded by my friends and industry colleagues, and is the clear-cut market leader for both sales and number of agents. The agent programs and marketing support they provide is simply unmatched, and I am proud to be affiliated with a company that stands for its agents and clients ethically and professionally,” he concludes.

Adds Managing Broker David Cantwell, “Kevin is a welcome addition to our Palm Springs Main office family. His unique background and love of our lifestyle make him the ideal agent to represent clients throughout the Coachella Valley under the Bennion Deville Homes banner.”

Bennion Deville Homes Carlsbad welcomes REALTOR Linda James
REALTOR Linda James joins the Carlsbad office of Bennion Deville Homes.

Bennion Deville Homes proudly welcomes REALTOR® Linda James to the Carlsbad office, located at 300 Carlsbad Village Drive, Suite 217. Linda earned her real estate license in 2015 and enjoys working with clients throughout San Diego County, serving needs from North County San Diego down to the UTC area.

The daughter of a real estate professional, Linda first earned her real estate license in her 20s before moving into the financial sector. This early exposure to the industry, as well as the knowledge and skills gained working in the financial sector, make her an asset to her clients. “I help guide my clients down the right path by answering their questions related to the complete real estate transaction process, purchase or sale, and how it connects with their larger financial picture,” Linda says. “Real estate is a natural fit for me because it’s a segment of what I work on in financial planning and management. I believe in finding the client the right home that not only meets their needs, but also compliments their lifestyle.”

Working in the financial services industry has sharpened her knack for providing exceptional client service. It helps that people are drawn to Linda’s friendly, approachable demeanor. “You have to be able to quickly understand your client – and how you can help them achieve their goals. From there, you gauge the best roadmap, researching and providing the best information possible to allowing the  client to make an informed decision, they are able to weigh the options so they ultimately make the best choice for their situation,” Linda adds.

Linda is addicted to the euphoria of helping others through real estate. “It is so fulfilling to successfully complete a transaction. Beyond my role in guiding clients through that process, I enjoy helping them find answers to any other questions they may have. My goal is to be ‘their person, a one-stop resource. I genuinely care about each client and what’s the best option for them in pursuing their goals. My mission is to help them get there, and complete the process,” she continues.

Spring-boarding off her desire to help others professionally, Linda is passionate about lending a hand to those in need in her community on her personal time. “I enjoy volunteering for worthy causes and have always been involved with organizations I believe in.” Her volunteer time is split between a few different causes, including the Parkinson’s Association, Girl Scouts, Multiple Sclerosis Foundation, and the Junior League of San Diego.

Linda joins Bennion Deville Homes after the brokerage was recommended to her by fellow real estate professional Wendy Matthews. “I enjoy how flexible and friendly everyone is in our office. There is such a welcoming atmosphere, it made it easy to join and latch onto that positive vibe and culture,” Linda concludes.

Adds Managing Broker Joe Wogoman, “Linda’s wealth of experience in real estate and finance, coupled with her ability to naturally connect with others, makes her a welcome addition to our growing Carlsbad family.”

Bennion Deville Homes Welcomes Randy Heyl

February 18, 2017
Posted by: Bennion Deville News at 7:45 am
REALTOR Randy Heyl joins Bennion Deville Homes Rancho Mirage.
Bennion Deville Homes welcomes REALTOR Randy Heyl to the Rancho Mirage office.

Bennion Deville Homes proudly welcomes REALTOR® Randy Heyl to the Rancho Mirage office, located at 71-691 Highway 111. Randy works with buyers and sellers throughout the Coachella Valley, specializing in the communities of Rancho Mirage, Cathedral City, and Palm Springs.

After visiting the Greater Palm Springs Area for 18 years from Los Angeles, the allure of the Southern California desert was too strong to resist. In 2014 Randy made it his home full time home after falling in love with the unique Mid-Century Modern architecture, outdoor lifestyle, and higher standard of living. “I love our community because it offers so much to its residents in terms of quality of life,” Randy says. “The hiking is incredible, it’s a haven for golfers, the spas are exceptional, and shopping is bountiful. There is a calming, relaxing quality that quiets the soul. My goal is to help my clients find the perfect setting so they can have the full desert lifestyle experience, the same reason I made this area my permanent home years ago.”

Prior to earning his real estate license, Randy made his mark in high-end retail management, where for over 25 years he trained and mentored sales staff for some of the most notable brands in the world, including Neiman Marcus, Hugo Boss, John Varvatos, and Ralph Lauren. Over this span, he perfected the craft of delivering client service with class, sophistication, and a little fun along the way. “You have to ask a client the right questions up front to get to the bottom of what it is they truly need. Communication is critical to any situation, but especially in real estate since this is one of the largest purchases anyone will make in their life. I need to make sure that I have the full scope of expectations so I am guiding my client down the proper path and can offer my expertise in the right fashion. My hope is to make the process easy for them while infusing my light, humorous approach to service.”

Bennion Deville Homes is the perfect fit for Randy because of the company’s polished office presence and agent support programs. “Bennion Deville Homes has a professional presentation with its esteemed brand and marketing materials, as well as the design of each office location. In addition, they offer the full support from a well-organized, highly trained staff. This is a company I am proud to work for and represent,” Randy concludes.

Adds Managing Broker Don Rossignol, “Randy’s strong client-service background, passion for the local community and its unique architecture, and familiarity with the lifestyle offered by each neighborhood makes him a nice addition to our Rancho Mirage team. We look forward to working with Randy and wish him a prosperous year.”

Bennion Deville Homes Community Spotlight – David Carden

February 15, 2017
Posted by: Bennion Deville News at 12:24 pm

Names from left to right: Sgt. Mike Villegas; Cpt. Peeters; Chief Bryan Reyes, and David Carden, jr. Founder/Chair of Volunteer Palm Springs
at the roll out of the public safety program P.S. Cares at the Mizell Senior Center.

Bennion Deville Homes Palm Springs Main REALTOR® David Carden of the Carden Maguire Team is deeply rooted in the Palm Springs community. As the founder of Volunteer Palm Springs, a 501(C)(3) non-profit organization, his vision for improving the community and his lifelong endeavor to give back touches the lives of thousands. Volunteer Palm Springs’ latest initiative is to call attention to public safety and to put a stop to a string of roadway accidents involving cars, pedestrians, and bicyclists. As a result, they are selling safety vests for pedestrians, bicyclists, and dogs to help increase visibility and decrease accidents. For these reasons, we shine a bright spotlight on the exceptional work David and Volunteer Palm Springs are doing.

 

Bennion Deville Homes [BDH]: What is it about this cause that is near and dear to you? Why do you want to bring awareness?

David Carden [DC]: I have been doing public/community service since I was 16 years old – I am now 68+ and have never stopped or looked back.  My commitment to any city I have ever called home has been to help make it better and impact other peoples’ lives in a positive way.

I founded Volunteer Palm Springs in 2010 with only 30 people. Since then, our membership has grown to over 1,100+ members and we earned 501(c)3 non-profit status. In addition to finding volunteer opportunities for our members, our organization was looking for a way to create a community-based educational and public awareness program. For three-and-a-half years I volunteered with Citizens on Patrol and saw many accidents involving vehicles, pedestrians, and bicyclists firsthand. It occurred to me I just might find the right combination of community involvement, volunteerism, and a cause to help make our city streets safer – and Voila!  P.S. Cares (Palm Springs – Public Safety).  I designed the heart-shaped logo because we want to make the month of February ‘Public Safety Month’ in Palm Springs. Hopefully these efforts will help further champion the cause.

BDH: What is your role in the roll out of P.S. Cares and the safety vest program? Any updates thus far in the campaign?

DC: I created the outline of the public safety program more than two-and-a-half years ago. We installed a committee who has worked tirelessly in developing a program which included tips for pedestrian, traffic, and bicycle safety in a positive way.  Our goal is to get people to start talking about public safety and, in doing so, we hope to change their behavior to become safer. I feel we all have to take more responsibility for our own public safety and the best way to do it is to start paying closer attention and focus on what you can do to improve: Don’t speed, don’t travel distracted, mind the traffic laws, respect the road, and wear a safety vest at night! I know bad habits are hard to break, which is why we are partnering with the Palm Springs Police Department (PSPD) with this program.  We will be co-hosting upcoming public safety seminars in the coming months.  Our program is about education and awareness, PSPD will handle the enforcement – the perfect marriage.

BDH: Where can people find more information about the program or purchase the vests?

DC: Folks may visit our website – www.volunteerpalmsprings.org – for more information on both Volunteer Palm Springs and our P.S. Cares program. The vests are in stock and available for purchase. Even better, the program is self-sustaining.  For every two adult safety vests we sell ($25 ea.) we are able to donate one to a senior citizen, person in need, or homeless person at NO cost. For every two dog vests we sell, we will be able to donate a vest to the Animal Shelter/Animal Samaritans at NO cost when people adopt/rescue a dog. In addition to our vest program, people can join our ‘Adopt-a-Senior,’ ‘Adopt-a-Dog,’ ‘Adopt-a-Homeless Person’ initiatives – all features on our website.

BDH: Beyond safety vest sales, is there anything else you are doing to raise awareness or funds for the program?

DC: We will be having our First Annual Fundraiser on Sunday, February 19th, for ‘Living the Modern’ Home Tour as part of the Modernism Week festivities.  We expect to host 250 people which will provide the seed funds for purchasing the vests and paving the way for us to begin donations.

BDH: Is there anything else you would like to add about Volunteer Palm Springs or the P.S. Cares program?

DC: Our board is so pleased to be a partner with PSPD.  Public safety is the #1 issue in Palm Springs and we hope our program is well received. As I like to say, ”Remember, there is nothing more valuable than a human life. The life YOU save just might be your own!”

Bennion Deville Homes Encinitas Welcomes Andrea Lynn Duncan

February 11, 2017
Posted by: Bennion Deville News at 6:43 am
REALTOR Andrea Lynn Duncan joins the Bennion Deville Home Encinitas office.
Bennion Deville Homes welcomes REALTOR Andrea Lynn Duncan to the Encinitas office.

Bennion Deville Homes welcomes REALTOR® Andrea Lynn Duncan to the Encinitas office, located at 258 North El Camino Real, Suite C. Andrea earned her real estate license in 2011, and was in the industry for several years prior, giving her a strong foundation of knowledge and know-how to help buyers and sellers throughout Southern California, including Orange, North San Diego, and Riverside counties.

Before earning her real estate sales license, Andrea worked for a real estate investment company where her duties included scouting locations to build new communities and picking finishes for homes. This exposure to the industry resonated with her, and fueled her passion for the business. “Real estate is so much fun,” she says. “Architecture and design are my two favorite aspects of the business, and I love sharing that passion with my clients. The way people feel when they get their keys and the relationship we develop through the process is truly special.”

As a veteran of the industry, Andrea understands how to grow and nourish meaningful client relationships. As a result, the last thing she describes herself as is “salesy” and prides herself on keeping her promises to clients. “You have to be open with your communication and completely up front about expectations to get off on the right foot. I also want to make sure that my clients and I ‘click’ in a real way. That connection is vital to the success of our partnership because real estate is so personal and intimate. We need to have an unbreakable bond of trust between us and be as open as possible.”

In addition to her love of design and her relationship-oriented style, clients enjoy Andrea’s fierce negotiation tactics and deep understanding of the latest market trends. “The key to success is having strong knowledge of the market and understanding how to use it to your advantage. You can leverage information to the benefit of your situation in negotiations, but also need to arm your clients with the most up-to-date, relevant details so they can make an informed decision. You have to stay focused and disciplined when it comes to keeping tabs on the latest information,” she adds.

When she isn’t guiding her clients toward a satisfactory real estate resolution, Andrea volunteers her time for a variety of causes, including fundraisers and food drives for animals and seniors. “It is important to maintain a philanthropic relationship with the community and give back whenever possible. I feel a greater sense of accomplishment and value by helping others, and knowing that my actions are making a positive impact in someone else’s life is a major reward.”

Andrea joins Bennion Deville Homes because of the brokerage’s brand and positioning within the market place. “Brand matters to consumers. Bennion Deville Homes offers an excellent platform, including unique programs such as the LUXE Collection for high end homes, and a fresh approach to the business that stands out from the crowd. I want to provide the best for my sellers, and they give me the tools and training to accomplish that feat. We have the feel of a boutique agency, but enjoy the benefits of a vast regional and international network, which suits my clients and my business perfectly,” Andrea concludes.

Adds Managing Broker Chris Moore, “Andrea’s immense real estate background, compassion for her clients, and hunger to learn make her a huge addition to our team. On behalf of everyone in our Encinitas family, welcome Andrea.”

Bennion Deville Homes Encinitas Welcomes Alison Lechleiter

January 29, 2017
Posted by: Bennion Deville News at 11:19 am
REALTOR Alison Lechleiter joins the Encinitas office of Bennion Deville Homes.
Bennion Deville Homes Encinitas welcomes REALTOR Alison Lechleiter.

Bennion Deville Homes proudly welcomes REALTOR® Alison Lechleiter to the Encinitas office, located at 258 North El Camino Real, Suite C. Alison uses her background as a teacher to educate her clients throughout San Diego County while accomplishing their real estate goals.

Real estate has always been of keen interest to Alison. “HGTV is on 24/7 in my house,” she laughs. “I love everything about homes and enjoy sharing that passion with my clients. From interior design and furniture selection to architecture and landscaping, the thought that goes into a home has always appealed to me and I relish the opportunity to use my love of real estate to improve my clients’ lives.”

Prior to earning her real estate license, Alison taught High School History for twelve years. Her pedagogical background comes in handy when working with clients because she can give them an educational experience while making the grade with their real estate dreams. “You really have to connect with students as a teacher, and the same principle applies to client relationships. Asking the right questions, digging a little deeper, and understanding what people really want and need allow me to produce top-notch results.”

After moving to San Diego in 2004, Alison and her husband, who was born and raised in Encinitas, purchased and renovated a home on their own. That experience and challenge fueled her passion for real estate, and gave her invaluable experience that she shares with her clients. Having lived and worked throughout San Diego County, including Downtown, Golden Hill, La Mesa, Del Mar, and Carlsbad, Alison is also well-versed in the different lifestyles each community affords its residents. “Having the personal experience of fully updating a home and the anecdotal understanding of what it’s like to live in a variety of neighborhoods allows me to better help my clients. Once I know my client’s desired lifestyle, I can guide them in a suitable direction and be confident they will love the outcome.”

Bennion Deville Homes is the perfect choice for Alison because of the company’s warm culture and forward-thinking structure. “You can tell Bennion Deville Homes understands what clients need in today’s market. The office structure is perfect for agents, including the support of a full-time Managing Broker, and the environment is so welcoming. I found a home here,” she concludes.

Adds Managing Broker Chris Moore, “Alison has strong personal experience in real estate and an intense focus on helping her clients accomplish the best solution possible. With a background in education, she can offer clients a unique level of service. We wish her a successful 2017 and beyond, and are excited to welcome her to our growing Encinitas family.”

Bennion Deville Homes Welcomes Rex John

January 21, 2017
Posted by: Bennion Deville News at 8:08 am
REALTOR Rex John has joined the Rancho Mirage office of Bennion Deville Homes
Bennion Deville Homes welcomes REALTOR Rex John to the Rancho Mirage office.

Bennion Deville Homes is proud to welcome REALTOR® Rex John to the Rancho Mirage office, located at 71691 Highway 111. Rex works with buyers and sellers throughout the Coachella Valley, specializing in the Rancho Mirage communities of Magnesia Falls Cove, Sunrise Country Club, and Thunderbird Country Club.

Real estate has always been of keen interest to Rex, whose father was a building contractor and introduced him to construction. This early exposure to properties and how they can transform a person’s life made a large impression on Rex, who took an interest in investing in, remodeling, and renovating tired spaces prior to earning his real estate license. “I have a personal passion for homes, and enjoy leveraging that passion to the benefit of my clients,” Rex says. In addition to his love affair with real estate, Rex enjoys working with people and helping them improve their lifestyle through real estate. “The feeling of helping others find the perfect place for them is the greatest reward and a wonderful feeling.”

Prior to entering the real estate industry professionally, Rex built a longstanding public relations firm on the backbone of hard work and exceptional client service. Those same principles carry him forward as a real estate professional, simply with a twist. “Previously, I was focused on helping my clients develop the best strategies to enhance their images. Today, I am focused on helping my clients find the perfect house and turning it into a home. Although my work may be different in name, my personal ethos is the same: Treat people the way I like to be treated, which includes being truthful and candid.” Rex’s commitment to professionalism and emphasis on open communication and ethics builds a strong bond of trust with his clients.

Drawing from his vast personal real estate experience, Rex intimately understands the pivotal role he plays for his clients in creating a smooth experience, framework that was set by other professionals he worked with as an investor. “As a real estate agent, you need to be efficient and proficient to create an enjoyable transaction for your clients. The agents I worked with personally were an inspiration because I saw firsthand the difference they made in my overall impression of the process. I strive to leave the same lofty mark upon my clients with each transaction and make what can be a complicated endeavor as simple as possible.”

As a compassionate resident of the local community, Rex understands the importance of giving back and has served a variety of causes in a multitude of capacities. “I give back to help others in the community, and I am happy to play the role. We have to make sure that everything is working as it should, so I like to contribute any way I can to help the greater good.”

Rex made the decision to join Bennion Deville Homes because of the brokerage’s size and the caliber of what it means to be a Bennion Deville Homes agent. “I have high standards, so I was determined to work for the best. Bennion Deville Homes has the lion’s share of the market, and for good reason. They only hire and work with the best, and I am honored to join their family of real estate professionals,” Rex concludes.

Adds Managing Broker Don Rossignol, “Rex is an excellent addition to our growing team because of his approachable style and business acumen, including marketing, negotiations, and ethics. I am excited to welcome him on behalf of our family and wish him the best of luck.”
