Laurie and Tim, along with several other like-minded real estate professionals, work together as a Team, The Briggs Group, at the Compass real estate brokerage in Palm Desert. Laurie and Tim believe in applying their life values to their work. On every transaction, Laurie and Tim try to put themselves in their clients’ shoes and treat them the way that Laurie and Tim would like to be treated.
Both are originally from Canada. Laurie lived in Victoria, British Columbia for 20 years and later in St. Albert, a suburb of Edmonton in Alberta. Tim grew up in both Vancouver, British Columbia and Edmonton and later attended college in Edmonton and Tulsa, Oklahoma. Both first came to the desert as visitors, but the casual lifestyle, sunshine and fiends lured them here to live as full time residents.
While others say “full service”, Laurie and Tim mean full service. If their clients aren’t from the Greater Palm Springs/Coachella Valley area, Laurie and Tim take the time to educate them about the area, the very different communities and house types here, what they can expect for their money and the condition of the local real estate market. They pride themselves on excellent listening skills and a commitment to the very best customer service. Since many second home buyers and sellers can’t be here, Laurie and Tim become their eyes, ears, arms and legs on the ground; doing things like attending home inspections and finding contractors for pricing on renovations and repairs. Working together, Laurie and Tim can bring the power of two to their work. Sometimes even that isn’t enough to provide the level of service Laurie and Tim want to provide, so they have formed a team of like-minded real estate agents, assistants, transaction coordinators, escrow officers, title officers, lenders and other service providers to help them.
Together, Laurie and Tim have built a real estate practice that reflects their integrity, work ethic and commitment to their clients. Strangers have become clients and many clients have become friends. And clients love it too, with Tim and Laurie being ranked by Palm Springs Life Magazine in the top 30 real estate teams in the Coachella Valley in sales volume in 2019. And that speaks for itself.
“We're here to help” is Laurie and Tim’s motto and it means that they and their team are here to help and guide their clients through buying, selling, leasing or investing in a desert area home, whether it be a primary residence, second or vacation home, or investment property, so that their clients can experience California Desert living at its best. Their goal is to listen to their clients, understand their needs and exceed them along each stage of any transaction.
If you're interested in buying, selling, leasing or investing in a desert home or just interested in learning more about the real estate market in the Greater Palm Springs/Coachella Valley area, please contact Laurie , Tim or any other team member by telephone, text or email.
