I grew up on Chicago, Illinois' North Shore in the Village of Glencoe. I graduated from New Trier East High School in 1970 and then received my BA in Economics from the U of IL at Chicago Circle and lived between Glencoe and Chicago's Gold Coast for over 65 years and then, after the unexpected death of my husband, Frank Kiesel, at the end of March, 2017, I decided to follow our dream of one day living in Palm Springs.
I took and passed my sales persons's license exam on March 26, 2018 and recently I took and passed my broker's license exam on September 4th, 2019. Then. I decided it was time to open my own Gay-owned Boutique Real Estate Company here in Palm Springs, although I have been marketing myself in Beverly Hills and Bel Air, as well. I attend Beverly Hills and Bel Air Broker Open Houses on a regular basis. I recently visited a $59,995,000.00 home located at 1175 N. Hillcrest Drive in Beverly Hills.
I specialize in 4% Listings but with a TWIST! I also include a 3D Matterport Tour with all of my listings plus a Floor Plan with room dimensions plus I am an FAA Licensed Drone Pilot and do all of my own Property Drone Photos and videos. I also personally show all of my own listings. Here is a recent 3D Tour example: http://www.1293Abrigo-3D.com.
When potential buyers have a chance to explore my listings through a "self-guided" tour, they can explore the property without just looking at 2 dimensional photographs. Time and time again buyers will tell me how grateful they were that a property, I represented and sold, had the 3D Tour and Floor Plan.
Here is a link to a Property Video I did for a listing in Los Angeles last year - http://www.687ShafterWayMovie.com
; a movie I did this past summer for a property in Indio: http://www.37661DentonMovie.com
and a current movie for a 5 Acre parcel I have listed in Desert Hot Springs: http://www.72470-19th-movie.com
In the past almost two years I have had several listings and sales and I currently have 18 listings with one closing before the end of the year. When I arrived here at the end of 2017 and was waiting to be scheduled for my sales person license exam, I opened my 3D Tour Business doing 3D Tours for business owners and other real estate agents. At the same time, I began to drive for Uber and Lyft to familiarize myself with the area and still do custom driving trips for clients to LAX, San Pedro, West Hollywood, Malibu, San Diego, etc.
"I love real estate and I love to assist my clients with their purchases and selling objectives. But the best part is when my clients turn into great friends and then they feel comfortable to refer me to their family, friends and co-workers." Happy Holidays! Sincerely, Charl
