The Association was formed in 1958 to serve REALTORS® in the Eastern portion of the Coachella Valley. Initially we were known as the Palm Desert – Rancho Mirage – Indian Wells Board of REALTORS®. It has grown to serve over 3,000 REALTORS® and allied industry professionals throughout the entire valley from Palm Springs to Indio. As such, the name was changed to California Desert Association of REALTORS® to better represent the association’s expanded influence.
We offer our members the widest array of products, services, and professional education available. Professional designations like the prestigious Certified Residential Specialist and Accredited Buyer Representative, as well as educational programs, license renewal classes and year-round seminars help Members gain new skills. In addition to these programs, we offer our members a variety of business tools-from research data and top-notch publications to cutting edge technology.
These and other programs are designed to increase the professionalism of Members and give them the tools they need to better serve their clients-the buying and selling public. In addition, the Association serves every real estate specialty with both residential and commercial property websites for Members, along with links for the public to view desert properties for sale or lease.
The California Desert Association of REALTORS® is the “Voice for Real Estate®” in the Coachella Valley from Palm Springs to Indio. For more information about individual classes, individual committees and meeting times, please call 760-346-5637.
