Best Restaurant near Eisenhower Hospital in Rancho Mirage, CA Several weeks ago we were in Rancho Mirage, just home from a trip to Colorado.  I had utilized my Yelp app while we were on our trip and for fun ... I tried it out in the neighborhood near Eisenhower Hospital in Rancho Mirage.  We were so lucky to discover a fairly new little hidden gem in the Albertson's shopping center called Si Bon!   Their chef/owner was a long-time chef at Thunderbird Country Club in Rancho Mirage- and now has his own French/Belgium restaurant, Si Bon.  They are famous for their creations with belgian waffles ... not sweet, but crisy and savory. We have tried the delicious Caesar Salad with chicken, the Chimay braised angus short-ribs over horseradish mashed potatoes... on top of a waffle, and their incr...

  Throwback Thursday: Frank Sinatra in Palm Springs   Frank Sinatra left his imprint on the Palm Springs area... and I mean more than just Frank Sinatra Drive.  Frank and his pals played golf and played all kinds of things here in the valley.  Oh, to be around at some of those cocktail parties! Ava Gardner may have broke his heart, but Barbara Marx Sinatra, his last wife... made a home for him at Tamarisk Country Club.  You can catch a glimpse of his compoud as you drive by.   Years ago, at Lord Fletcher's on Hwy 111 in Rancho Mirage, they had a very entertaining bartender who would share Frank Sinatra stories with patrons.  He had worked there during the Sinatra days and had also poured drinks at some of those private cocktail parties.  Very cool!

        Sunnylands: Home of the Annenbergs...the rich are very different from you and me. Let me tell you about the very rich. They are different from you and me. They possess and enjoy early, and it does something to them, makes them soft where we are hard, and cynical where we are trustful, in a way that, unless you were born rich, it is very difficult to understand. They think, deep in their hearts, that they are better than we are because we had to discover the compensations and refuges of life for ourselves. Even when they enter deep into our world or sink below us, they still think that they are better than we are. They are different.   Fitzgerald, F. Scott   Sunnylands estate in Rancho Mirage, the A. Quincy Jones designed masterpiece, owned by the late billionaire publisher, phi...

My clients HAD to see this short sale in Rancho Mirage, Calif.  I did my research about the property, list agent, notes against the property, area, recent comps and off we went. Absolutely gorgeous home.  Beautifully built and finished.  Originally sold in 2006 for 1.5 mil.  Listed at $999,000.  I had taken an extensive tour of the development before my clients saw it.  Beautiful, impressive on the outside..but, and this is a big but.  The devleopment is only partially built out.  Started in 2000, grand opening in 2002, and there has been nothing added to the build out since the first phase was completed!  What??? The builder/owner lives here..and doesn't owe money on it.  However, he's the 3rd or 4th owner.  Again..hmmm???  Look past the fluff and the finishes. My buyers love the home,...

Is this a beautiful spot or what? I absolutely love living in the California Palm Springs desert region.  I  live in one of lovely desert communities, Rancho Mirage and wake up every day with a smile on my face. I still cannot believe it.  As a matter of fact, I was so worried about moving to the desert and giving up my San Francisco Bay Area home that I bought a small condo in the Bay Area just in case I wanted to move back.  If you are wondering if I bought the condo at the height of the market, the answer is yes.  But what would you have done?  I did not want to price myself out of the market and never be able to afford another home in the San Francisco Bay Area.  Ah, hindsight is great, isn't it?  Now don't get me wrong, I enjoy each and every visit to the San Francisco Bay Area and...
