Veronica and Jean Louis Brault Montreal
We found Claudine and Alvin to be very professional and thorough and, most important, very patient. We never felt they were focused on “selling” us anything. Their focus was on responding to our needs and getting us complete information to use to make our decision.
Brian and Judith San Diego
We have worked with many realtors over the years. Claudine and Alvin provided service beyond our expectations and worked tirelessly to find us the right property.
Harold and Beverley Calgary
Claudine was a huge help to us. She new exactly what to do and was very responsive. Claudine had at least a dozen homes for us to view over three days before we were to fly home. We gave her ideas of what we were looking for and she was ready for us.

Alvin is a true professional. We had a difficult sale with several complications. Alvin kept his cool while we all lost ours. Our neighbor came across the street to speak to us about our realtor, saying he was very impressed with him as he worked very hard showing the property with open houses, and he invited the neighbors in for an open house with a nice lunch served, which certainly was unusual for our area.
Chuck Stowel Orange County, California
They are professional and knowledgeable of all aspects of the market and of market transactions. They helped me locate a distressed property, and then they helped me monitor the property resulting in our offer being placed early enough to be considered. Then, they fought with the lender to consider our offer as accept the same. Excellent service and diligence.
Michael Solomon Kansas
We dealt exclusively with Alvin Fuchs for our purchase of a condominium in Palm Springs. The property was a difficult transaction and also of quite low value, but despite the challenges and smaller commission Alvin treated us with great care and professionalism. We are very happy with our purchase and will definitely use Alvin again if we sell or trade up.
Dave and Teresa Kampen Calgary
Alvin helped us to buy a lot and when we are ready he is going to sell our home. He was very helpful and had answers for all of our questions. He was always available to look at properties and when we decided on what property to buy everything went quickly and smoothly. Alvin is very good at preparing your present home to sell. Alvin is a great agent!
Steve and Debbie Bartels Nebraska
Our buying experience with Alvin was most enjoyable. He handles both sides of the transaction and I believe both the sellers and my wife and I as buyers were very pleased. He was very responsive to all of our requests for information and I can honestly say I have never worked with an agent that left me with the feeling that I would like to be their friend! I would highly recommend Alvin to handle any real estate transaction.
Tom and Mary Jo Fruectel Washington
I have worked with Alvin on numerous occasions and he is very knowledgeable, professional and fair with his fees. I have always found him to be punctual, prompt and easy to work with. I highly recommend Alvin for any real estate related services.
Sasha San Diego
Alvin was good in that he did everything a sales person needs to do to help with the sale of a home and all the info needed for the new owner to get everything done in a timely manner. He even gave me ALL the names of the utilities and their phone numbers to contact them and where they are located. He even gave me a list of people to contact to have certain work done to my new resident. He even gave me addresses of where to go to find things that I needed for the new home. He was very helpful and remained in contact with me the whole time my home was in escrow. I would definitely give him a 5 start rating.
Jim Paul Walnut, California
We would like to express how pleased we were with the service received from your office in regards to the property that we purchased in Palm Desert. We had the priviledge to use your company through your agent Claudine Messika.
Claudine Messika was an amazing agent with whom this purchase may not have happened. Her website was informative and easy to use. Our biggest pleasure was having regular, consistent and timely contact with Claudine. We were aware of how in demand Claudine is and never once felt that she was too busy for a question or concern. Her professional manner was inspiring and her knowledge of the area, bylaws and real estate rules was outstanding. Claudine made this international property purchase a smooth and easy transaction.
We have been so pleased with the relationship we built with Claudine and also her partner Alvin, that we would recommend her and your office to anyone.
Thank you for helping us purchase our winter home in your lovely city.
Gregory and Dora-Lee Pope Canada
After spending time on her website, we had a good idea where we might like to look, and we headed to the Desert with Claudine’s phone number in our bag.
We called her on our second day in the desert and informed her of our criteria,and made a plan to meet the following afternoon.
Not only did she show us several homes, (all meeting our criteria ), but she had previewed the homes BEFORE she met with us so she was informed and able to save us precious time.
Claudine was prompt, informative, and businesslike, when she was busy with other clients, her colleague, Alvin Fuchs, answered our questions and brought us our paperwork. We were well attended to by the the two of them.
We found exactly what we were looking for with no frustration or prolonged exhaustive search. She handled the offers to purchase and subsequent counter-offers with finesse and guided us through a successful escrow. (As Canadians, we had little knowledge of the US system and she guided us through each step.)
We HIGHLY recommend Claudine (and Alvin) as an extremely professional realtor, we would use her services over and over again.
Marnee and Graeme Lee British Columbia, Canada
My partner and I have recently purchased a condominium in Palm Springs and we would like to sincerely express our gratitude to both Claudine Messika and Alvin Fuchs. Having had mixed experiences in the past with real estate agents, we have to say that this was the best experience we have had to date. Since we were from out of town, we not only needed help understanding the real estate market but also with the process of buying in California. Claudine and Alvin were extremely sensitive to this which made the whole process much easier. She took the time to show us every single property that we wanted to see and was extremely professional the whole time. She was not only very attentive to our requests but extremely responsive (returned ALL phone calls within the hour), kind, and honest with us throughout the entire process. She let nothing “slip through the cracks” and worked very hard to make sure we were comfortable and happy with our purchase.
Once we had found a property, Alvin really took the time to explain everything from the inspection, paperwork (there was certainly lots of it), repairs and even did the final walk through in our absence. Although there were several bumps along the way, they both did their very best to accommodate us as best as they possibly could. It was very easy to see that they truly had our best interests at heart and they took the time to understand who we were and what we wanted. Claudine and Alvin are clearly very experienced real estate agents who understand the real estate market and know their job well. We would strongly recommend that you use them if you are considering buying a property in the Palm Springs area. We remain very happy with our property and have Alvin and Claudine to thank. for making it happen. Thank you so much and we look forward to seeing them when we come to stay at our new beautiful home in Palm Springs!
Roger R. Ayres M.D., R.PH. Westport, Connecticut
We recently purchased a property in Palm Desert, CA. We initially found Claudine and Alvin through their website and put them in touch with a friend of ours who was visiting within the community in which we had interest. Except for pictures and the word of our friend we started the purchase of the property sight unseen. Although this could have been a very traumatic experience, Claudine and Alvin made the process both simple and easy. We were directed through every stelp and wound up at the close of escrow feeling very comfortable and excited. When we finally came into the area, Alvin met us at the airport and led us to the property where we were pleasantly surprised with our purchased.
Claudine and Alvin, as well as the team of vendors they used for the process , were very professional and responsive. I will recommend them to anyone interested in purchasing property in Palm Springs and the other Desert Cities.
