About Us

What We Do

Harcourts International and Harcourts North America invest a tremendous amount of time and resources to support communities and organizations through the Harcourts Foundation. Here in the Coachella Valley, Harcourts Desert Homes actively supports many local charities as a brokerage and through the community work of Scott Palermo & James Sanak. Some of the local charities they support include Eisenhower Medical Center, The Palm Springs Art Museum, DAP Health, The FIND Food Bank, The LGBT Center and the Modern Men: Coachella Valley Men’s Chorus.

Our Purpose: To provide support that helps, grows and enriches our communities

Harcourts Desert Homes and their owners are directly a part of the renaissance and wave of investment in downtown Palm Springs. As business partners launching Harcourts Desert Homes, their efforts renovating the historic Liebling Trust Building into a modern day real estate office were featured by the prestigious Palm Springs Life Magazine. In short, we at Harcourts Desert Homes have great pride and investment in the success of our beautiful Coachella Valley!

Looking forward, not back

While the proud legacy of Harcourts goes way back to 1888, our total focus is firmly on the future. We are constantly asking how we can improve our systems; how we can offer our clients even higher levels of personal and professional service, and how we can train and equip our people to achieve the best possible results for their clients.

It is all about people

Successfully buying and selling real estate is mostly about fulfilling people’s needs, wants and aspirations. That is why Harcourts agents not only receive in-depth professional training (the benchmark for the industry) but are also committed to building meaningful and genuine personal relationships with their clients. The huge volume of referrals and repeat business generated at Harcourts is proof that this works to everyone’s satisfaction.

You cannot beat the system

Because Harcourts has invested in the development of cutting edge systems, property consultants have the full range of marketing, research and technological tools available to them at all times. Working within a tightly-knit and highly-motivated team environment, the business, customer support and online services which they can draw upon are very impressive.

Support the Community

In 2008, our Harcourts team was asked if there was a better way to invest in the communities where we work, live and play, their overwhelming response led to the launch of The Harcourts Foundation in Australia, New Zealand and most recently in the United States of America. This means the Harcourts Foundation gives back to the Greater Palm Springs area community.
