Windermere Real Estate Southern California is proud to welcome Realtor® Bruce Dahnke to its Palm Desert San Pablo office, located at 44-530 San Pablo Avenue, Suite 101. Bruce earned his real estate license in 2012, and brings over 30 years of personal experience in the industry, which he applies to help buyers and sellers throughout the Coachella Valley make informed real estate decisions. Bruce holds a B.A. from the University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee, holds a Green Designation from National Association of Realtors® (NAR), and is certified as a Resort and Second-Home Property Specialist (RSPS).

Bruce’s path to real estate began early in life, when he helped take care of his family’s investment properties. After getting a taste of real estate, he fell in love, eventually buying and selling or renting his own properties, which included developing a condo-conversion project in the Milwaukee area. “Real estate was a creative outlet for me and an escape from my ‘day job’ in nuclear medicine,” says Bruce. “I really enjoy taking decades old properties and restoring them to their original glory and integrity, but with modern technology and appointments.”

Due to his decades of personal, hands-on experience in real estate, Bruce is well prepared to work with his clients and pass on his insights and vision of real estate as a long-term investment. “I know a good investment when I see one, and enjoy working with my clients to pass on that perspective. It is critical to set aside the emotional aspects and focus on the business side of purchasing a home. My goal at the end of the transaction is to make sure that my clients are happy with the outcome both from an emotional and a fiscal standpoint,” continues Bruce.

Clients appreciate Bruce’s attention to detail, intense preparation, and honesty. “I like to be well-prepared to work with my clients. I find out the history of each property, who the architects were, and the organic styling behind the design. Understanding these points gives me insight, whether it’s to get a home ready for market or help a buyer find the right abode, and allows me to best inform my clients so they can make the right decision.”

Bruce decided to join Windermere Real Estate Southern California because of his history with Managing Broker Dean Foster and several other Windermere colleagues. “In addition to having the chance to work with Dean again, I was drawn to Windermere because it’s the biggest and the best in the Coachella Valley,” concludes Bruce.

“I am excited to welcome Bruce to our family at the Palm Desert San Pablo office,” adds Dean. “His years of personal and professional real estate experience, genuine approach with his clients and peers, and affable personality make him an excellent fit and addition to our team.”
