Client Testimonials

Jeffrey & Justin

Amazing agents to work with. John & Ryan were with us every step of the way -- and have the experience and connections to make things happen. Their sense of what is right to do and when it is right to do it is precise. More importantly, the whole time we thought (and knew) that they had our best interests in mind. Trust is so important when engaging in a real estate deal, and we trust them implicitly.

This not the first time they have advised and helped us, and it certainly will not be the last. When you meet winners, you stick with them. They are winners… we're sticking.


We were not easy clients, as we were traveling much of the time, did not have a clear idea of what we were looking for, and changed our mind on what our needs were several times throughout the process. Each time Jaclyn Mahar listened patiently, adjusted her course and provided us with houses that reflected the most recent feedback. She continued to keep us informed of available houses, and when we got to the point of negotiating our offers, she listened to us and represented our requests clearly. When we asked for opinions and guidance she offered us her honest opinion, but never pushed her opinion on us if it was not requested.

She was responsive and very easy to work with. She seemed to have a very good working relationship with the seller agents, but I always felt she was working in our best interests. She continued to remain responsive and helpful once the sale was completed, facilitating a walk-through with the sellers, picking up the keys on closing day, and even providing additional funds for the premium home warranty out of her own pocket.

She went well above what was required.

Dawn & Eva

We cannot imagine working with any other agents!! The personalized care and attention to our needs and anxieties that John and Ryan provided was so helpful. They are seasoned professionals and can totally be trusted to support you every step of the way. Everyone we have recommended them to has been super happy!

Meggie Hawthorne, Realtor

"I am a licensed REALTOR® with Keller Williams West Ventura County and recently had the opportunity and pleasure to partner with Jaclyn Mahar on a contingent sale/purchase, involving 3 transactions. Jaclyn is a licensed REALTOR® specializing in the Palm Springs area and did a fantastic job at teaming up with me to ensure all of our clients' timelines, contingencies, and move out/move in dates were in complete alignment. When issues arose, Jaclyn jumped right in with a solution-based approach. Her communication skills are top-notch and her dedication to helping all parties smoothly transition into their new homes makes Jaclyn a wonderful agent. Should I have clients looking to relocate to the Palm Springs area, I will without a doubt recommend Jaclyn to them. Thank you Jaclyn for all of your hard work - let's do it again!"

Erin & Rob

"I truly appreciate that you and Ryan continue to work hard for us. You've both been absolutely professional to work with and Rob and I both appreciate you so much. In our minds, you are the ONLY agents in Palm Springs :)"

Jeffrey T. & Matthew W.

"Wow, thank you all so much. Matthew and I are so lucky to have you guys (Dallas & Ryan) stay with us throughout the process, we felt very taken care of... We had the best team behind us and will not forget your diligence. This home is a literal dream come true for both of us, and we will feel so inspired every time we make memories there.

...Looking forward to our next deal together!"

Tom T. & Eric N.

“Ryan and John knocked it out of the park for us. After months of frustration with other Realtors in finding the right fit, John and Ryan found us paradise within weeks. The professionalism, attention to detail, honest, ethical, knowledgeable approach of them and their entire staff gave these East coasters peace of mind and their California dream. Not only did they find us a home they also situated us to make sizable income from the property when not in use. And it doesn’t stop at the closing. John and Ryan continue to provide “white glove service” always available to answer any questions long after the sale was finalized. Highly recommend them to anyone looking to come grab that desert vibe.”

Debbie A.

"I asked my best friend who she would use if she was looking for a home and she recommended Jaclyn Mahar. House hunting was much different during a global pandemic but Jaclyn was on top of it. She understood what I was looking for immediately and worked with my kind of quick time schedule but she never made it feel like she was rushing me through anything. She really was a complete joy to work with. I will sing her praises to anyone and everyone, she made a difficult task so much easier. If I ever need a realtor in the valley again it will be Jaclyn Mahar."

Eva & Dawn

"So happy with the awesome support and technical expertise you and your team offer!! You guys are the best... so impressed by service! No waiting for anything- proactive all the way. Goes above and beyond, like taking us up with a heavy cabinet for final walk thru... in the snow."

Scott L. & Darren G.

“We had such a great experience working with Ryan and John! We’ve worked with several other Realtors over the years but Ryan and John blew them out of the water. They are so professional and hard working. Because of their reach we had offers over ask on our house in Palm Springs before it even went on the market. They knew exactly who our buyer was and went after them for us in a way no other Realtor has. I sincerely hope we get to work with them again in the future.“

Dave M. & Roy S.

“Ilse Hernandez, we would recommend you to anyone looking to purchase property. We would tell them everything... from going above and beyond, ability to meet our needs, punctuality, always readily available, excellent communication skills and your infectious smile. Ilse you were a pleasure to work with especially during these difficult times, we are very grateful for all you did for us.”

Charlotte H.

"For approximately two years Jaclyn Mahar worked with me to find a home. She was always willing to show me anything I wanted to see, in whatever area, even those houses not conforming to my list of “must-haves” and “nevers”. I felt she always gave me her undivided attention. Together we found the perfect home for me. She was with me through all of the final steps, even through escrow. We became friends, not just agent and client."

Marlene R, Realtor

"A couple of weeks ago I met this agent at my open house. We worked SO hard at making this deal work and holding it together through negotiations and renegotiations. This was a quick 17 day escrow and yes, there were hiccups but we overcame those, together. I always say that my clients always become my friends and I’ll say that is the case here too but I also gained these two kickass agents as friends through this transaction! We, they and I, pulled together and helped our clients (whom also ROCK) through this quickly moving escrow and guided them all the way through the finish line. I swear, if there were clips of behind the scenes with this one...
Thank you, John and Ryan for all of your help!"

Ezra H.

"We have several RE deals to date and John & Ryan delivered everything they've promised to make sure we have a phenomenal world-class experience.
From the minute we started working with John & Ryan, they've exceeded our expectations beyond what we we imagined!
They listed and sold our home while we were out of town and made us feel comfortable and informed throughout the whole process. They also have lots of "outside the box" ideas that help! It is with much satisfaction and relief to have met these wonderful dynamic duo of a team. I don't usually refer RE agents but after this experience, if you have property in California, don't skip a beat to set an appointment to chat with them. They are professional, super fun to work with and most importantly - "they get the job done".
Way to go guys!"

Joey S.

"Ryan, I read something about hugging your agent today so I'm sending you a hug. And thanks for being such a rock / rockstar. If you wanna know how I really feel. I don't like brokers. I don't even like the one we used here. But you have a very tender caring way about you and are honest and make the world a better place. The amount of trust I ascribed to you in a short amount of time was unprecedented for me. Just keep doing what you're doing. I'm proud to know you and I am glad you'll be in my life from now on! It's not just about the buying part. You make me feel like you care about what happens and that you are honest about what is doable. I can see why you have such success…

Richard B.

"Jaclyn Mahar represented my family as a seller. We found her to be most professional and attentive. If we had a question she was immediate in her response. If she didn't know the answer to a question she found it in a flash. We are so lucky to have found a realtor that we can say without question will be representing us for the foreseeable future. You have a real gem in Jaclyn.....we felt VERY well represented and she managed to get more than we hoped for. Our Kudos to you and your team!"

Darren & Jared

"John & Ryan instantly made us feel at home when we arrived. With us not knowing the lay of the land, we entrusted them to guide us in the right direction. Their wealth of knowledge of the local real estate was instrumental in finding us the perfect house. We would definitely use them again."

Bruce & Philip

“Ilse Hernandez handled our rental property in Los Pueblos. From the first time we spoke to her we could sense her professionalism and knowledge of the real estate/ rental market in the Palm Springs area. She has been extremely thorough in finding the perfect tenant for our condo. She has handled every issue in a timely fashion, while maintaining a calm and confident demeanor. We look forward to continuing our relationship with Ilse and highly recommend her to everyone."

Mike & Dan

"We can not thank you and the entire office for all that you have done for us and made this such a positive experience. You all are such pros and really always made us feel like a priority. Thank You So Much! The John & Ryan Team were nothing but AMAZING!!! We Love and Appreciate all your Hard work."

Ed S.

"We just closed on our Palm Springs condo and want to give thanks and high praise to our realtors John & Ryan, Real Estate Group. We live in Hawaii but used to live in Palm Desert nearly 20 years ago and my partner used to work with John in the Hospitality industry. John then moved to become a Realtor and we saw him on HGTV's 'House Hunters.' When we decided that we wanted a second home in Palm Springs we called him and planned our trip. We only had two days to look at homes so time was tight. John had a perfect agenda to look at homes over the course of the two days and by the end of the second day we had strong number one and two choices of places we possibly wanted to make an offer on. Within a day of our return to Hawaii we did make an offer on our number one pick and John did an incredible job throughout the offer and closing process. They were always available to us via email, text or call and always responded immediately to any of our questions which was very important to us given that we were not physically in Palm Springs during much of the process. We cannot say enough great things about John & Ryan and highly recommend them to anyone looking for a home in the Greater Palm Springs area."

Storm J.

"For a lot of logistical reasons in selling our current assets, it has taken a while to get ready to close on a deal in Palm Springs. John & Ryan have been the most patient and supportive you could imagine. They have given so much of their time to show us properties, even when we were not yet ready to make a deal and have then searched out small nuisance size leases, in the interim, with the same professionalism and good humor, as if we were buying a $10,000,000 property. John and Ryan believe in the long term relationship in working with their clients on their client's schedule. They never push or complain. We will be building a number of properties in in the next several years and will totally trust John & Ryan to represent us. I like these guys as people and, something that I rarely could truth that they really want to work out things that benefit our needs instead of their own. I can't recommend them highly enough. They are both great guys as real estate agents and just guys who are so much fun to have a meal with."

Thomas & Kier

"We were in excellent hands with the team. This wasn’t an easy escrow; but through the various challenges they were there to answer all our questions and represented us EQUALLY as well through the process. We look forward to our continued relationship as we debut Canary House in early September."

Michael K.

"We were very satisfied with the communication and level of professionalism our agent provided. Ryan was terrific through the whole long, arduous process (it was a short sale). All things considered, it took a little over an hour for him to find me the right place at the best price. He knew just what I wanted and this is all he showed me. Finding the right home was the easiest part of the process (though I know it can be the most arduous), especially since our communication up until the time we met was through phone and email (since I was 2700 miles away)."

Peggy A.

"I can’t thank you enough for making my son's first quest for purchasing real estate an in depth educational process. Not to mention how you always answer our questions; listen to our concerns; truly care about our needs; and put us back on track with a smile! To me that is what High Quality Customer Service is all about."

Donald Crevier

"You've been an absolute pro! And I don't give that kind of compliment to agents cuz most I've known are a-holes. Great salesmen are nothing without great back up and that makes you a great team!"

Dorothy T., Executive Assistant to Donald Crevier - Crevier Classic Cars

"Ryan, thank you for all your work on this project. You were instrumental in completing this project. Congrats to you on a job well done!"

Mandy & Steve

"Thank you again for your opinion yesterday, your insight was very helpful. Steve and I both respect your perspective so much and think you have a very nice balance between practicality and ambition."

Gib & Lowell


Gib and I first thank you greatly for your understanding during those first days you met us and became our agent. You carted Gib all about Palm Springs while the other ‘Buyer’ was propped up and heavily medicated in a hotel room, with a remote in one hand and my phone in the other. Vagal nerve-based seizures are no fun. We came close to calling off the whole thing, getting a long-range rental PSP-SFO and going home once I was stabilized. NOT! Instead, Gib went looking with the realtor we hadn’t yet met and we’re sure glad he did!...

Gib and I have a lot of history in Palm Springs with loved ones, celebrations and funerals, and we have desert-placed stories that help describe our marriage over 34 years. Just six months ago, Gib and I could barely deal with the present, much less our future; now, we’re practically in Palm Springs!


Travis T.

"I have a feeling that Mr. Cummings is to be in my Real Estate life from now and wayyyyy into the distant future. You are absolutely fantastic at what you do. You totally read my mind and found exactly what I was looking for. Well done, Ryan!"

David L.

“Working with Ryan Cummings and his team at the Brokerage Real Estate Group made my home sale an easy transition. After living at my dream home for almost 10 years, it was time to downsize so I could make my life a little simpler. From the beginning consultation, he shared his expert opinion and guided me on my next steps during the transition along with recommendations. In a matter of 3 days after my home went on the market, I already had two offers on the place. At that point, he immediately found me the perfect new home because he knew exactly what I was looking for in a new place. My goal that I had set has been achieved and could not be happier with the outcome.”

Shawn S.

"I would like to express my pleasure with real estate agents Ryan Cummings and John Moore, who are representing me on my current purchase of a single-family home. Ryan and John have been outstanding agents and have guided me through this process beautifully. They've acted and responded very efficiently in all matters and at lightning speed. They are savvy, personable and have made me very confident in their ability and expertise in getting me into the house of my dreams. I will highly recommend Ryan & John to everyone."

Brendan F.

"Great team working here if you want to buy or rent.. I wouldn’t trust anyone else to help me or friends find the right neighborhood to live!!!"
