Jenell Fontes Nominated For “Top Women In Business” Award

Windermere Real Estate Southern California Premier Director and Realtor® Jenell Fontes has been nominated for the “Palm Springs Life Entrepreneur of the Year” award as a part of Palm Springs Life’s “Top Women In Business” awards, taking place Tuesday, May 5th at the Ritz Carlton in Rancho Mirage.

“I am thrilled and honored to be mentioned with a group of such incredible women,” says Jenell of being nominated for this prestigious award. 

“I am especially proud that five of the nominees for the three awards are members of Women Leaders  Forum. That is a true testament to the caliber of the individuals in WLF and our roots within the local business community.” Jenell has been a member of WLF for 16 years, serving on the Board of Directors for her 8th year this year, currently in the role of Vice President. “Being a part of WLF has helped my growth and development in all facets of my life. I want to make sure that I continue to give back to a group that has done, and continues to do, so much for me professionally and personally,” she adds.

Jenell and her team specialize in second home and investment properties, touting the power of seasonal rentals as a means of the property potentially paying for itself. She also works as a designated Premier Luxury Agent, Investment Property Specialist, REO Director, and Short Sale Specialist, offering a vast array of services for her clients throughout the Coachella Valley. Jenell earned the 2014 Trulia Top Agent Award, putting her in the top 1% of all agents on the site based on sales, listings, and reviews. “I couldn’t do it without my wonderful team of professionals, especially fellow Windermere agent and Administrative Assistant Gaby Valencia. Gaby has grown with me from REOs in Desert Hot Springs to multi-million dollar deals,” continues Jenell.

Jenell also credits Windermere Southern California as a contributing factor to the successful growth of her company and rise to becoming one of the top Realtors® in the Coachella Valley. “Being a part of the Windermere team has given me the resources and guidance to help build my business to the success it is today.  They have done so much by giving me the tools I need to successfully perform for my clients and encourage me to strive for greatness daily,” Jenell concludes. “Choosing real estate for a career gives me the ability to be flexible and balance my personal and professional lives. With harmony between the two, I can be better focused for my clients and still be a great mom to my kids.”

“We are proud of Jenell’s nomination,” says Bob Deville, Co-Owner of Windermere Real Estate Southern California. “In a relatively short amount of time, she has made her mark on the Coachella Valley real estate market and continues to improve every day. I wish her luck on Tuesday – she deserves the recognition for her hard work and dedication to providing excellent service to her clients.”

I Love My Canadians!

In the past couple of years Canadians have made up over 30% of my sales and now my Canadians seem nowhere to be found.Due to the fact that the Canadian Dollar has taken a huge hit in the exchange rate and our home prices have continued to go up, my Canadian clients have had to face a double dose of inflated reality.I found this really great article that explains the disappearance of the Canadian Home buyer.The questions begging to be answered is will the strength of their dollar improve anytime soon as I only see housing getting stronger in the next couple of years.So, even with the escalation in price and deflation of currency I still think the deal are out there and it is still a good time to buy.
“What a price Canadians have paid lately, though.Over the last two years their purchasing power here in the US has declined sharply, and since just last summer it’s flown farther south than a goose, which really should be their national bird (apparently they can’t agree on one).Just look at…

Millennials And The Coachella Valley Real Estate Market

In the next few years at least $16 trillion of ultra-high net worth (UHNW) individual’s wealth will be passed on to the next generation over this period, spawning a new crop of multimillionaires, the Wealth-X and NFP according to the Family Wealth Transfers Report “As self-made UHNW baby boomers start passing on their wealth to their children, the importance of entrepreneurship and hard work will be put to the test,” the report said.

Millennials are looking at walkability scores, energy efficiency, Smart homes and provide a comfortably Chic lifestyle. Millennials want location, location, location, less maintenance and smaller homes with less outdoor space and easy open inter…
