Robert Downing Named to Palm Springs Life 40 Under Forty

Robert Downing, Associate Broker and principal of Robert & Tracy Real Estate Group affiliated with the Rancho Mirage office of Bennion Deville Homes, was recently appointed to the esteemed Palm Springs Life 40 Under Forty list. Voted upon every four years, 40 Under Forty is a who’s who of the Coachella Valley’s up-and-coming leaders and is comprised of candidates in a variety of fields and industries, with nominees sourced from the local community. The full feature on Robert by Palm Springs Life is available on their website.

Robert & Tracy Real Estate group is one of the top-producing agent teams at Bennion Deville Homes, and throughout the Coachella Valley. Robert Downing and Tracy Boomer have made a name for their business through distinctive client service and a dedication to results. As the saying goes, when you do a good job, people will notice. “It is a huge honor to be named among such a great group of individuals,” states Robert. “Personally, it means so much to have people near and dear to me nominate and vote for me to be part of this impressive group. From friends and family to colleagues and clients, it is really touching to hear how much of a positive impact I am having on our local industry and in the lives of others.”

In addition to his immense dedication to building up Robert & Tracy Real Estate Group with his partner Tracy, Robert is intimately involved in giving back to the local community. Robert and Tracy spend a lot of time supporting local businesses and organizations, including Animal Samaritans, where Robert has been part of the Men of the Desert Fashion Show and Charity Luncheon, and the Desert A.I.D.S. Project, among numerous others. “It is important to support our community and we give back as much as we possibly can. Whether that’s attending a business grand opening, donating to fundraisers, or attending black tie dinners, we want to do our part to leave a positive impression on the organizations that make our community such an amazing place to live.”

Earlier this year Robert & Tracy Real Estate Group expanded its team, and Robert remains bullish on the prospects for the future of the Coachella Valley real estate market. “Tracy and I have always thought the Coachella Valley offered the best value in California, and because of this the valley will continue to grow. When you look at conditions in other markets around Southern California, you see the opportunity that presents itself for our market. We have a solid inventory of homes available at affordable prices, and the quality of living is top-class.”

Robert and Tracy moved to the Southern California desert from the Bay Area in 2009 after visiting the local area for many years. With deep roots in the community professionally and personally, they are here for the long haul. “We saw an opportunity to have a better work-life balance and recognized right away that the residents who live here did so with a passion for the relaxed lifestyle and surrounding natural beauty. Instinctively we knew we could successfully build our brand here and market the valley as a top destination to live in California. We are so lucky to do what we love in a place we love,” Robert concludes.

Adds Bob Deville, Co-Owner of Bennion Deville Homes, “We are proud of Robert for earning this well-deserved honor. He and Tracy have built a strong business and golden reputation for being genuinely good people who work hard for their clients and deliver results. Congratulations Robert, we look forward to continuing our partnership with Robert & Tracy Real Estate Group and helping you fulfill a bright future.”
