Windermere Celebrates Its Palm Springs Roots

Windermere Real Estate, roaring into its second decade in the Coachella Valley, takes this opportunity to salute its debut desert location at 850 N. Palm Canyon Drive. Dedicated in November 2001, in the early days of the desert’s burgeoning real estate market, the office was an immediate success. Windermere Coachella Valley co-owners Bob Bennion and Bob Deville, highly successful market leaders with Windermere’s Seattle offices, saw unlimited potential in bringing their personalized brand of the Windermere legacy with its leading edge tools and exceptional customer service to the Valley’s Buyers and Sellers. “It was a little scary,” remembers Bob Deville. “We were making a huge leap of faith putting so much of ourselves into an entirely different geographic market, but we’ve always loved this region of Southern California, and we knew even then that we had a lot to offer.”  Originally the office/showroom of iconic Palm Springs designer Arthur Elrod, the Palm Springs Main office retains its distinctive mid-century style, welcoming clients through its 15’ doors 7 days a week. Visitors are captivated by the floor-to-ceiling mineral oil waterfall, creating a unique focal point and soothing atmosphere.  David Cantwell, the first and current Managing Broker for the office, provides oversight and guidance to 90 Palm Springs Realtors®. Later joining Windermere’s Palm Springs Main office were sister offices Palm Springs South (2465 E. Palm Canyon Suite 605 in the Jensen’s Shopping Center) and Palm Springs Midtown (1255 E. Ramon Road).  Today, Windermere Coachella Valley offers 16 offices providing full real estate services from more than 800 licensed, professional agents. The company’s broad diversity matches the Coachella Valley itself: what every Windermere office and agent offers to their clients, regardless of market category, is an exceptionally satisfying and successful real estate experience.
