Welcome Home Carla Coulson-Prieto!

Bennion Deville Homes welcomes REALTOR® Carla Coulson-Prieto to the Palm Desert San Pablo office, located at 44-530 San Pablo Avenue, Suite 101, along the newly updated main artery through the heart of Palm Desert. Carla earned her real estate sales license in 2014 and works with clients across the desert, specializing in the cities of Palm Desert, Rancho Mirage, La Quinta, and Indian Wells. In addition to her real estate sales license, Carla holds a degree from British Columbia Institute of Technology (BCIT) and completed her real estate courses at the University of British Columbia (UBC) Sauder School of Business.

Growing up Carla was surrounded by the business of real estate. Originally from British Columbia, her family was a prominent player in residential development. “I come from a golf course and residential development family, so I spent years watching the real estate industry with fascination,” Carla says. “I could see what a benefit there is in making the right real estate decisions, and I wanted to be a part of that process with clients. Plus, my personality and strengths fit with the industry. I am resourceful and always up for a challenge.”

Prior to entering the real estate industry full-time, Carla enjoyed a fruitful career in hospitality, holding roles in hotel management and sales management, even completing Hilton’s famously rigorous customer service and business training. “My time in hospitality set me up for a successful real estate career because I developed a strong sales history and learned how to consistently deliver excellent customer service. I combine this background with my love for homes and design, and passion for helping others, to create a unique experience for my clients,” continues Carla.

As a seasoned real estate veteran, Carla understands the root of client satisfaction and how to deliver outstanding outcomes. “I enjoy the combination of helping my clients and seeing the unmatched variety of home styles the desert offers. It is fun to click with others and help them buy a property they truly love. This business goes beyond getting someone into ‘any house.’ You must be patient with clients to make sure that they are completely happy with a potential property purchase. Is this the right fit for this person or family? You have to look out for their best interests, not just take the quickest, easiest path,” Carla adds.

The Coachella Valley has always been special to Carla. She has visited the Southern California desert since she was a child, before becoming a part-time resident as an adult and transitioning to living here full-time. “The weather in the desert is a huge draw. My family enjoys spending time being active outside, exploring the desert via its numerous hiking trails, and playing pickleball. Having made the move from Canada, I am uniquely qualified to understand what it’s like buying or selling a home and making that change. I also know what to look for in a seasonal home, including understanding the needs of someone who wants to be a part-time resident as well as the tax implications that come with the purchase of a foreign property.”

Bennion Deville Homes is the perfect place for Carla to call home because of the company’s robust agent support and prominence throughout the Coachella Valley. “Bennion Deville Homes is prevalent throughout the desert and a professional, well-branded brokerage. The marketing support and ongoing agent education opportunities offered are invaluable to my business. I also liked Tish [Herwig, Managing Broker] and had a good feeling about her,” Carla concludes.

Adds Tish Herwig, “We are pleased to welcome Carla to our Palm Desert San Pablo office. She possesses the qualities to be a true asset for her clients, including her positive attitude, passion for helping others, and a love for real estate. We look forward to supporting Carla and providing her with the tools to help her business flourish.”
