I started dealing with Kurt and Sylvia from my home in Washington State in early Fall of 2020. I interviewed several realtors on the phone to sell my second home in the desert. I went with the Gaffney Team of Desert Sands Reality and knew I selected the right agent. They have become my friends and I have told everyone about my wonderful experience. I asked about the selling time and they said about 1 month. It sold in 3 weeks for more than I was expecting. The process was painless and I would definitely use them again.

Smooth as silk. We closed the sale of our home about 5 weeks after listed! Communication between all team players including escrow was clear and prompt. Sylvia and her crew got it done for us! We most definitely recommend Team Gaffney.

Sylvia and her staff was outstanding from the start of listing our condo to the closing of it. They kept us updated thought out the process. They sold our property in only 3 days. Closed escrow 10 earlier than was expected. If you need a team that works hard, fast and keeps you updated. This team is it. Thank You, David and Gilbert

I would highly recommend Sylvia Gaffney and the Desert Sands Realty team! Sylvia was a pleasure to have as our real estate agent. She offered valuable advice, answered every question that we had so that we could make an informed decision when purchasing our new home and always responded promptly. She deserves the highest praise. I will definitely be referring my family and friends to Sylvia!

Sylvia is very professional and always available. She has many ways of getting your property out to the public. She had numerous open houses along with comments from visitors. Sylvia is a great realtor, I have always suggested her to my friends.

Prior to coming to the Coachella Valley to scout potential retirement homes, my wife Christine and I had never met nor heard of Sylvia Gaffney. Since we were using a Veterans loan, our lender had suggested Sylvia as a local realtor that they worked with successfully in the past. We met Sylvia for coffee and five weeks later we were in our new home in beautiful La Quinta! Sylvia was relentlessly patient, humorous, knowledgeable and above all professional in all our dealings. Home buying can be an emotional and nerve-wracking enterprise, and Sylvia absorbed most of the stress without losing her smile or the goal of getting us in, after first using her negotiating skills to get out first bid accepted, along with closing costs! There is no one one better that I can think of to put your trust in than Sylvia when looking for a Coachella Valley home and a peaceful process in getting one!

Dear Future Customers of the Team Gaffney, We are very thankful for the teamwork of Kurt and Sylvia Gaffney for the sale and purchase of our homes. From our first meeting, Team Gaffney was equipped with details on the processes for selling a home. They presented a binder full of information that prepared us personally for the sale of our home. We felt that the Gaffney’s listened well and answered our questions on the best ways to sell our home. We appreciated that patience. Team Gaffney held multiple open houses for us, they kept us well informed with the volume of people coming through our home and updates from potential buyers whom were interested. We felt communication is a very strong asset for this team. This communication became very important when we had our buyer back out on the last day of our sales agreement. We were in shock but now we found time against us in the closing of our new home. It was disheartening at first but Team Gaffney was on top of the whole process and got our home quickly back on the market the next day and within 2 days, we had 2 new potential buyers. One was a cash buyer which enabled us to remain on schedule with the purchase of our new home. We were relieved and thankful. Sylvia did a great job in caring and protecting our interests throughout the sale. We feel her experience in the real estate world created the sense of peace and confidence we needed to complete all the necessary transactions which got us to our new home. We would recommend Team Gaffney to anyone. They truly care about you as a person or couple. They work very hard to make every situation right to accomplish the goals you might have for your future home. They are a Team that not only talks about Doing something for you, they are a Team that Does it and Does it well! Thankfully, Paul and Kim Henry

She is very active and helpful. She listed the house fast. She is familiar with the community and culture in this area. She is honest and advises the seller about the right price range very compassionate about her work.

Sylvia is an amazing person to work with. She is very professional, caring and proactive for her clients. This is the third home we have sold with her, and every time has been absolutely wonderful. There are no details too small for her to take care of, and you never have to worry about where in the process you're at. She communicates everything very clearly and anticipates possible issues and resolves them.
