Windermere Homes & Estates welcomes Heidi Gustafson to our Palm Desert branch!

Coachella Valley is one of America’s best kept secrets.  Not that it is really a secret, but it is the ultimate sunshine place with everything you want at your finger tips:  amazing restaurants, entertainment, and lots of art and festivals.   Heidi Gustafson first came to the Coachella Valley 40 years ago on a family vacation.  She still remembers how beautiful the mountains were and how the palm trees towered against the eternal blue sky. She came back to visit her family five years ago and knew this was where she needed to be.

Heidi 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. She also enjoys physical fitness and training in the beautiful Coachella Valley weather.  She also enjoys participating in the many road runs they have in the area as well as bicycle events and the local triathlon.  Let Heidi help you make your sunshine dream home purchase come true!

“Heidi’s enthusiasm is inspiring. We are happy to have her join our Windermere family,” says co-owner Brian Gooding.
