2020 Top Residential Real Estate Producers

Real estate agents work hard to stand out in the crowded field. Many claim to be top producers, if not No. 1. As a service to our readers — and the local real estate industry — Palm Springs Life set out to identify the individual agents and teams who really top the charts in the Coachella Valley. To produce this feature, the editors assembled the leadership of the two local real estate associations — California Desert Association of Realtors (CDAR) and Palm Springs Regional Association of Realtors (PSRAR) — which provided MLS data showing sales volume for agents and teams in 2019. The magazine cross-referenced the data with Terradatum’s BrokerMetrics and verified the numbers with each agent’s broker/manager

PROFILE

“Art and architecture are serious passions of mine,” says real estate agent Keith Markovitz. So serious, he and partner Todd Monaghan have made buying and selling unique, interesting architecture their life’s work — from the stunning Ken Kellogg Doolittle residence in Joshua Tree to the Dinah Shore Estate in Palm Springs to the former midcentury modern home of actor Laurence Harvey (a record-breaking $9.5 million transaction, the highest in the history of the Old Las Palmas neighborhood in Palm Springs).

“If it’s architecturally significant, that’s what drives us,” Monaghan says. Markovitz agrees, adding, “A lot of people think all we do is sell $5 million houses, but the reality is we like properties that have some sort of interesting architecture and design. We’re big art and architecture junkies across the board.”

Markovitz, who has worked in real estate his entire career, formed TTK Represents with Monaghan in 2008, and the two have spent the last decade building a team of professionals — Susan Canavan, Chris Menrad, Rick Distel, and Joan Fidalgo — to help expand their business, as well as their passion for architecture, valley-wide.

“It’s important to us to be the masters of the area we’re in,” Monaghan says. But helping people and building relationships, he adds, is equally intrinsic to what they do. “You don’t get to care for yourself at all in this transaction,” Markovitz says. “If you do, it better be dead last because, frankly, the client’s needs are the most paramount part of the entire business to us. You can’t be in this to make a sale.”
