TEAM PETERSON REALTY JOINS FORCES WITH WINDEREMERE HOMES & ESTATES Homes & Estates is proud to welcome Team Peterson to their office on El Paseo. Team Peterson Realty started over a decade ago as a husband and wife team and since have grown to have 5 team members; Dave Peterson, Angela Peterson, Heidi Gustafson, Jim and Bonnie Rowan. Dave Peterson began his real estate career in 1997 in So. Lake Tahoe, California. First, opting to go into it part time, and then finding that he enjoyed the people contact and the challenge of finding the right home for the right client. In 2003 he retired as a Fire Captain for the City of South Lake Tahoe Fire Department. This challenging profession taught him the value of life. The service side of the profession taught him the importance of treating each and every person I meet with respect and dignity.

In 2003 Dave and Angela moved to Coachella Valley and fell in love with the area. Dave and Angela have always worked as a “team.”  Being married for over 40 years gives them the unique ability to combine their strengths and to anticipate needs before they come up. In 2007 they became Team Peterson with a true passion to provide the type of experience for a buyer or seller that they would want, and strive each day to match their clients’ needs with the best the Coachella Valley has to offer.

“We are extremely excited to have Team Peterson join our team. Their knowledge, passion and love for helping people truly set them apart,” says Laura Clark, Director of Sales.

Heidi Gustafson has been involved in the real estate business since 1980.  She has been involved in all aspects including real estate finance and mortgage servicing. Since she loves the Coachella Valley so much and she finds it exciting to show the area to potential buyers so that they can make this place their home too–even if it is only a part-time winter home.

Jim & Bonnie Rowan are another power-house real estate couple who enjoy helping clients and friends buy and sell their houses. They specialize in Tri-Palm Estates and Country Club which is conveniently located just minutes off the I-10 freeway.  This community has over 1800 homes, both manufactured and site built, and contains a section for families, as well as, a thriving and dynamic 55+ section for active adults. This community is situated on two different golf courses with panoramic views of both the San Gorgonio Mountain Range and the San Jacinto Mountain Range.
