For those of you who do not know yet, Bennion Deville Homes separated its ties from Windermere Real Estate franchise and became an independent brokerage. The new website launched in November 2015. See below.
Bob Bennion and Bob Deville, Founders of Bennion Deville Homes,
one of the largest independent residential real estate brokerages in
Southern California, officially launched their new independent brokerage
on Thursday, October 1, 2015. The brokerage’s break for independence
from the franchise model along with the new name and branding reflects
an enhanced focus on Bennion Deville Homes’ ongoing growth strategy.
The 29-office real estate company, including 17 Coachella Valley
locations, debuted the brokerage’s innovative branding in a companywide
meeting to more than 1,000 agents from throughout Southern California
last week. Bennion Deville Homes agents and their clients met the news
with much excitement. The company also announced cutting-edge marketing
and technology tools that will become available on BDHomes.com, the
company’s new website, over the coming months, including map-based
search, enhanced listing features, and more. The agent support programs
will also get a boost, helping Bennion Deville Homes agents continue
their legacy of exceptional client support and results-oriented service.
“Bennion Deville Homes’ philosophy of supporting real estate agents’
individual marketing efforts, coupled with exceeding the expectations of
our buyers and sellers, is the basis for every decision we make,” said
Deville. “Our business model provides a strong, recognizable brand while
offering company support through full-service marketing, technology,
brokerage, and administrative services. This combination has resulted in
record-setting sales figures since our company’s inception in 2001.”
Bennion and Deville stress that all aspects of the Southern
California-based bedrock brokerage will remain the same. “We have been a
self-supported operation for over 14 years. All of our exclusive
marketing and technology programs, market stats and data, and every
location throughout Southern California will remain with us. The same
friendly agents, staff, and Managing Brokers, who have been serving our
clients since 2001, are still here. The only change to the way we do
business is the company name,” Bennion added.
Deville cited the need for flexibility to meet the ever-changing
demands of the marketplace and the sky-rocketing franchisee fees as
reasons for going independent. “We outgrew the franchise model and think
that this move is in the best interest of our agents and their buyers
and sellers, as well as for the future growth of our company,” Deville
“We know the brand we developed will appeal to a wide range of home
buyers and sellers,” said Bennion. “From Millennials to Baby Boomers and
the Greatest Generation, and everyone in between, we know our fresh
look resonates with every major demographic and price point, and perhaps
most importantly, with our agents.”
Bennion and Deville worked under a franchisor based in the Pacific
Northwest for the past 17 years, initially as real estate agents, then
as brokers in Seattle. They subsequently opened their first franchised
real estate office in Southern California in 2001. Since then, the
agent-owned and operated company has posted more than $16.8 billion in
sales in the Coachella Valley, and San Diego and Orange counties.

Windermere Real Estate has just made the 2nd Quarter home sales statistics available for Palm Springs, San Diego and Orange County areas. You can find them on their site under Our Blog/Magazines. The information can be quite useful if you are planning on buying or selling a home.
In general the Coachella Valley is currently a Buyer's Market both in the Luxury Market and the Overall Market. With inventory still up from last year, and prices down in some areas, now is a great time to find a bargain. The report is broken down by city. In Indian Wells for example prices are down 14% from last quarter and down over 30% from last year and La Quinta is down 17% from last quarter and but down only 9.4% from last year. Compare that to Palm Springs whose average sale price rose 10.5% over last quarter and is up 13.7% from last year.
So when one asks how the market is here in the Coachella Valley it is not such a cut-and-dried answer.
The good news for sellers is that all indications point toward an uptick in prices in the fall of 2015 and for buyers now is the best time to buy before interest rates inch up further and home prices rise for the new season.

With temperatures topping 109º this last week we are definitely feeling the summer heat in Coachella Valley. Dramatic thunder, lightning and wind storms make it all the more exciting. Visitors reluctant to come in July and August don't always realize that early mornings and evenings here are gorgeous. The hottest part of the day is between 3:00 and 5:00 p.m. but the temperatures are in the 80s and 90s in the morning and evenings, pleasant enough to golf, walk, hike and do any number of outdoor activities, including house hunting!
This is the time when serious buyers come into town to purchase a home that can be made ready for the upcoming season. I have seen increased activity this year compared to last year and I am seeing more vacationers realizing the great summer deals not only in hotel and golf rates, but in home prices. With interest rates due to increase, now is the perfect time to buy your desert dream home.
