Welcome Home, Marco Colantonio
Bennion Deville Homes proudly welcomes REALTOR® Marco Colantonio to the Palm Springs office, located at 201 North Palm Canyon Drive, Suite 120, along the main artery of the Downtown Palm Springs village. Marco began his real estate career in 2008 and helps his clients purchase and sell properties across the Coachella Valley, serving Palm Springs and the surrounding areas.
The emotional connection we make with our homes captivates Marco and is a key factor in his passion for the industry. Marco cites observing his grandfather burning the loan documents for his family’s home to celebrate paying off his mortgage as a defining moment in his life. “My grandfather, an Italian immigrant, worked hard for 30 years to make the dream of home ownership come true,” Marco says. “The security, memories, and celebration of family, friends, and loved ones at my grandparents’ house have always motivated me to be in real estate. A home is the nucleus of life. Whether it’s handing my clients keys to their new home or hearing that my seller received their funds from escrow, I appreciate the opportunity to make a positive difference in people’s lives.”
An empathetic and compassionate professional, Marco provides a high level of care and attention to each client. “My real estate experience in West Hollywood helped me perfect the art of developing relationships with my clients, my fellow real estate professionals, and with the community. My clients know that to me, it’s all about them. Listening and understanding people’s needs and showing respect for others are essential qualities to creating lasting relationships and happy clients. In turn, customer satisfaction leads to retention and referrals,” Marco adds. He also cites his prowess negotiating on his clients’ behalf as important to creating the most beneficial outcome for his clients. “I aspire to be the best at what I do,” he says.
Prior to entering the real estate industry, Marco enjoyed a prominent career in the restaurant industry. He held many roles, from owning and operating multiple restaurants in New York City to opening high-profile eateries for a celebrity chef across the country. Although he enjoyed his time as a restaurateur, real estate has always been Marco’s first love. “Restaurants were fun and a lot of hard work, and I was able to hone many of the skills I use as a real estate professional today,” he continues.
A native New Yorker, the allure and exoticism of Palm Springs is romantic to Marco. From the first time he visited our desert oasis in 1997 he has been drawn to the Coachella Valley’s natural splendor, magnetic atmosphere, and unique lifestyle. He is also an expert in midcentury architecture and appreciates the iconic aesthetic that is planted throughout the local community. “Palm Springs is the most beautiful, majestic place in Southern California. We get to enjoy an ever-changing landscape that is like seeing a new painting every day. It is easy to devote time to helping others find happiness in a place you love,” Marco gushes. “Palm Springs offers all the amenities of a big city without the bustle, including world-class restaurants and nightlife, opportunities to enjoy live entertainment and culture, and more. Palm Springs has its swagger back and is sparkling brighter than ever, as trendsetters, vacationers, and transplants discover its exuberant modernist aesthetic and experience sun-filled days in paradise. Somewhere between living and dreaming, there’s Palm Springs.”
Marco decided to join Bennion Deville Homes because of his longstanding relationships with several Bennion Deville Homes agents and their positive reviews. “I have many friends who are agents with Bennion Deville Homes, and they all rave about the support, marketing programs, resources, and opportunities to grow their careers. Bennion Deville Homes’ expansion in the real estate market is unparalleled and enticing. I am drawn to talented professionals who are passionate for real estate, respect the business, and operate with style and elegance. Nobody else compares to the level of agent support provided, which allows us to offer bespoke service to our clients,” Marco concludes.
Adds Managing Broker Dean Foster, “We are proud to welcome Marco Colantonio to our office. His passion for the lifestyle of our resort cities, the real estate industry, and serving his clientele with a concierge, full-service approach, will set him up for success with us. I look forward to working with Marco and helping his business thrive.”
