Greater Palm Springs is gradually starting to re-open, and while we're excited to see people dining, shopping and walking our beautiful streets, we hope everyone is staying safe!  The coronavirus hasn't gone anywhere -- and we can do our part by keeping the masks on and keeping our distance where appropriate.

With that said, it's wonderful to see people out and about again, and to see some of the creative ways our stores, restaurants and bars are adapting to these times. Help our LOCAL businesses by dining out or getting "to go" food and by visiting our local retailers!

And if you're considering buying or selling a home, now is a great time and the market has remained vibrant and active...and we're doing virtual and in-person tours to help buyers and sellers get the best possible deals!

_________

BELOW ARE OUR LATEST NEWS AND HAPPENINGS....

Stay well.  Stay Safe.
