Get to Know Alex Dethier

Alex Dethier entered the real estate profession with a goal in mind; that of finding the absolute best solution for people who are looking for the perfect home or part-time residence. “It is so rewarding to see people step through the door of a home and know that this is the right place for them.”

In addition to his broad knowledge of Palm Springs and the surrounding areas, Alex also brings a global perspective to customers needs. Originally from France, he left Europe for schooling in the United States and grew up in Marin County, CA. He put his technical abilities to work in Silicon Valley at the height of the boom, and then was drawn to real estate.

Alex’ interests and passion for travel have taken him from Africa to New Zealand. “My travels have given me considerable insight into the international real estate community and allow me to understand the nuances of both domestic and international customers and their lifestyle aspirations.”

As an enthusiastic resident of Palm Springs, he believes that, “This region offers an exciting market with a broad spectrum of estates, homes, condos and resort properties.” His base also includes Palm Desert, Indian Wells, Rancho Mirage and the desert areasthat make up the Coachella Valley.

Alex is a consummate professional but also warm, genuine and honest. His integrity is unmatched as is his ability to produce immediate results. He is absolutely one of the very best and I recommend him without any hesitation whatsoever. Alex is a rock star.
Andrew Kassinove
Alex is an outstanding realtor. I recommend him very highly. He is ethical, extremely helpful, and we couldn't have gotten a great home without him.
Gerald Soubeyran
Everything was perfect and smooth from beginning to closing. Alex was available at all times (we live in France and therefore had a BIG time difference with him in Palm Springs!) for any questions we had. He was patient, understood all of our needs precisely, and his extensive knowledge of Palm Springs neighborhoods and condos was invaluable to us. Saved us time and money! All in all, an absolutely perfect experience and we are very happy to recommend Alex to anyone looking for real estate properties in Palm Springs.
Georg and Suzanne
My husband and I have had one of the most pleasant and professional experience with Alex. We could never imagine a realtor with better skills in negotiation and dealing with a complicated x-border purchase. Alex is savvy, articulate, patient, super reliable and ultimately the best person you could ever want to handle this kind of stressful situation. We had an extremely tight timeframe, 2 countries and distance weighing against our purchase. Alex took it all in stride and never dropped the ball. It was a wonderful ride and the outcome exceeded our expectations! BRAVO.

I have bought and sold many properties and Alex was by far the most professional and attentive agent I have ever worked with thus far. He is a perfect choice for anyone who needs guidance throughout the purchase process. I wholeheartedly recommend Alex for any real estate transaction!
Jim Budzinsky
After Alex explained the various neighborhoods to us he worked with us on a pretty exhaustive search for the right home. When that home appeared on the MLS Alex moved quickly to inform us of the opportunity, schedule a viewing and assisted us every step of the way from the offer to the close. We took ownership of the property exactly 33 days from first seeing it. There wasn't the slightest bump in this process - from the paperwork to inspections to leading us to the right mortgage broker. It was an extremely professional and fun experience working with him. I would happily work with him again and recommend him to anyone. In this day, it is quite remarkable to get this type of service!

We were looking to buy our second home in Palm Springs and Alex made it happen! We put in our offer after looking hard. Alex was amazing. During our search Alex went above and beyond what most other realtors possibly wouldn't do. He loves what he does and it shows. Alex did not stop there. Without the help of him and his team, they where able to save the transaction from collapse several times. Without this, we would not be in our home....thanks for getting us into our beautiful home. We love it , and Alex, a true professional and truly on his game. Gene & Kevin

LG-Portland, Oregon-Helped buy a 2nd home My wife and I recently bought a 2nd home in Palm Springs. We were exploring the market and because Alex was so easy to work with, accommodating, knowledgeable, and listened to what we were looking for, we found our home and closed in record time … the entire process flowed smoothly from beginning to end. He has gone above and beyond any realtor that I had ever worked with. He helped make the process an enjoyable experience…..we never lost a minute of sleep or worry. We "almost" want to do it again soon... but we love our new place. I highly recommend Alex for buying or selling a property.
