For 25 years, I, Paul Kaplan, have been a Realtor, slinging keys and showing houses. But my real passion, you ask? Gazing longingly at the vibrant community of Sun City in Palm Desert. Forget selling there, I dreamt of living there..Now, Sun City isn't exactly known for its rainbow flags. It's a gated 55+ community of 10,000 people, more like an adult Disneyland – golf courses, pickleball courts, enough water aerobics to make an Olympian blush. Even in my 40s, I confess, I daydreamed about qualifying for residency one day. My partner, Larry, just rolled his eyes."Paul," he'd say, honey dripping from his voice, "you're more likely to find a disco ball at a bingo night than a gay couple at Sun City."But the allure of an activity-packed retirement was too strong. We both craved hobbies, so...

Palm Springs has long been associated with Hollywood and the entertainment industry. It has been a popular destination and retreat for celebrities and a hub for the film and music industries. One of the reasons for the connection between Palm Springs and Hollywood is that Hollywood actors had a stipulation in their contract with the studios that they must always stay within a 2-hour drive from production. Many Hollywood stars, including Frank Sinatra, Elvis Presley, and Marilyn Monroe, owned homes in the area. Leonardo DiCaprio is one of the most famous actors who recently purchased the former home of Dinah Shore in the Old Las Palmas neighborhood in Palm Springs, a Mid-Century home designed by the famous architect Donald Wexler.The city's relaxed atmosphere and desert landscape still p...

There are so many advantages to living in the Palm Springs area which contribute to its popularity as a super desirable place to live. I fell in love with Palm Springs as a child when my parents would take my sister and I on a yearly vacation to the desert.Palm Springs enjoys a warm and sunny climate throughout the year, making it an ideal location for those who prefer a mild winter and plenty of sunshine. One caveat, there are a few months out of the year where you are better off staying in your air conditioned home, office, or gym.The city enjoys true natural beauty as we are nestled in the Coachella Valley, surrounded by picturesque mountain ranges, including the San Jacinto Mountains. The area offers breathtaking desert landscapes, palm tree-lined streets, and stunning sunsets.Palm ...
