10/05/2015 Natalie is always professional however gives very personal service. She follows up and keeps us informed. Everything runs smooth when you deal with Natalie. - ranchocasitas111 – Natalie Sjaardema
Natalie is reliable and her responsiveness is prompt and completely on point. Her patience and dedication is beyond compare.... One will not be disappointed to have her as their representative. My wife and I have made 3 visits to La Quinta within the last year to look at various homes and communiities in the Indio and La Quinta Areas. We went so far as to put a deposit down at the Trilogy Polo Club but subsequently changed our minds......With Natalie's patience and help we are renting in Indio beginning this December for 3 months to take a more thorough visit before making this large move.... Natalie found the rental for us including accomodations for our dog. She has never exerted any pressure and never seemed motivated by a potential commission. Rather, our happiness and our making the right decision was of paramount interest to her.............She is a credit to her profession. - David and Diane Newman – Natalie Sjaardema
Natalie is amazing! She is very honest and knowledgeable. She helped me and my children find a home and it is exactly what we asked for. She is very patient and keeps you informed with all the information. I never felt alone in this process. I have a new home and a new friend. THANK YOU Natalie!! - Tanya Morales – Natalie Sjaardema
We would highly recommend Natalie for any of your real estate needs. Our experience working with her was such a pleasure. Natalie was very informative and always available to meet our request. Having lived in the desert all of our life we are very satisfied with our experience working with her. We are very grateful to have found her and will continue to use her for future purchases or sells. - Judith Cook – Natalie Sjaardema
Natalie worked with us as if we were her only clients. We came in from out of town for one week. She found us the perfect house within 2 days. She really knows the area and sensed our tastes right away. Our entire transaction was completed from out of state. It was handled smoothly and professionally. After we closed the sale, she kept working with us to get painting, carpeting and cleaning done before we moved. She has contacts for everything you need done. I cannot say enough good things about Natalie. She's the best. Don't go anywhere else! - Sandra Corp – Natalie Sjaardema
Natalie works very hard and has excellent communication with her clients. Dealing with her is hassle free and you can be rest assured that she will handle your transaction in a very professional manner. I just listed my second house with her. If I owned 10 houses they would all be listed with her.....Thanks for doing a great job! - Nick Movsesian – Natalie Sjaardema
Natalie was very professional and went the extra mile to get the home sold. The property was a private intrafamily lender situation and I live in another state. Natalie handled all of our needs as a long distance property owner and fulfilled our goal of selling the home for a competitive price for the present condition of the home. My family and were very pleased with the outcome of the sale and I would highly recommend her realtor services to anyone, especially if you are an absentee owner. - Howard and Rosa Rathbun – Natalie Sjaardema
Without Natalie's help we wouldn't have had such a smooth transaction. We completed most of the paperwork and closing out of state. She certainly is knowledgeable about the market and has up-to-date information, etc. She is very responsive and I would highly recommend her! John and Joan Remick – Natalie Sjaardema
Natalie fights for you! She responds to your calls, emails and texts, she answers your every question, she looks out for your best interests, she helps with every single detail along the process of buying a home! She is also a lot of fun! She takes her job and clients very seriously. Will definitely work with her again in the future! Thanks Natalie! - Lynn Lester – Natalie Sjaardema
Natalie has consistently provided me with the best service I have EVER received in my 30 years of buying investment properties. When I am interested in a property, she responds quickly with comprehensive facts and even videos. I think she has really figured out how to use the Internet when marketing my homes for sale after we fix them up. She does more than any other agent. I live in Canada and trust her to handle my business and protect my assets. I highly recommend her to all my friends, family and business associates. - Libby Owens – Natalie Sjaardema
Natalie is amazing. She has a deep understanding of people and quickly assesses what they are looking for. She goes out of her way to find the right property and will not settle for 2nd best for her client. Her work ethic and integrity are of the highest standard. She responds within a timely manner to all phone calls, e-mails and text. She goes the extra mile. I will continue to praise Natalie as we bought a house through her and we did it remotely at first as we lived 360 miles away. Our re-location to La Quinta would have been very stressful without Natalie's help. When we met she had all the houses ready for us to view. We bought a fabulous house in 2 days and we were able to leave Natalie in full control. She ran the show, keeping everyone informed and on track to a quick and smooth closing. I really cannot recommend or praise Natalie enough. I will NEVER use any other agent to buy or sell property. Emily Kincaide – Natalie Sjaardema
Natalie is very helpful and full of knowledge. She takes her business seriously and it shows. She answered my inquiry in a timely manner. Natalie had results for me within minutes of me requesting information. She always was respectful, cheery and helpful. - Chet and Marla Rosenburg – Natalie Sjaardema
While looking on my own for a winter home in La Quinta, my husband and I accidentally met Natalie at an open house. We immediately clicked. I knew in an instant Natalie was genuine, not your "typical" pushy agent. (sorry if I offended other agents) and we were so comfortable leaving California to let Natalie take care of all the details in our home buying. Natalie worked endlessly to find us the "perfect" winter home in the cove. As you can imagine, buying a home sight unseen could have been extremely stressful, but Natalie made the entire process seamless. She You Tubed our dream home, and kept us up-to-date every step of the way, working above and beyond to keep me stress-free..loved that part. We bought our dream home in La Quinta, while we were living in family and friends thought we were crazy!! But Natalie was so awesome! I can't say enough about our positive experience..having Natalie watch out for us and walk us through the process was the smartest move we made..well, that, and buying a winter home in the La Quinta cove. if your looking for a home..Natalie is your girl - Jeniffer Finch – Natalie Sjaardema
Attention Residents of the Coachella Valley!

She Is hands down a very extraordinary , all around Realtor . Natalie is not just a realtor but also a friend from the moment you meet her. Her kind assertive work ethics are guaranteed. Thank you NATALIE so much for these two lovely home's ! Lynn and I really appreciate all your above and beyond work. Five Stars plus two thumbs up isnt enough to show you our gratitude. - Ramon Blanco – Natalie Sjaardema
Natalie is a great agent! Always returns calls promptly if she doesn't answer. She is very service and detail oriented. She knows her market and can find whatever you are looking for if it exists. I had a good experience with her as my agent. I highly recommend her services. Mitch R. – Mitch Radney
From: Diane Servos Natalie helped us secure a rental,property from Dec 2015 through 2016, including our dog which was difficult. She has shown us potential properties for permanent relocation and she possessed great knowledge of the Indio and La Quinta area. She also showed us several,properties in the palm desert area. She was very responsive and diligent in our search. – Natalie Sjaardema
Patricia and Larry Isaacson said: I highly recommend Natalie Sjaardema, (Aris Properties), for all your real estate purchasing and selling needs. I did not know Natalie prior to the purchase of my home this past March, and in a state swimming with a variety of agents and brokers, it is a challenge to find an excellent and experienced professional whom you can trust completely in representing a buyer or seller, like me, who is new to the La Quinta/Palm Springs/Desert environment. Natalie is an outstanding broker and agent. In representing me as buyer, she dealt with an extremely difficult broker and agent who represented the seller which were extremely unprofessional and lacked ethical character. At all times, she clearly communicated the options to proceed or withdraw an offer. As we wanted this house, we choose to proceed with our offer, even though the seller’s agent made it extremely difficult. Natalie responded to our needs 24/7, and took time and attention, in giving the BEST service throughout our purchase from offer to closing. Our experience working with Natalie, despite the challenges from the selling parties, was one of competence, care, and expertise. When you are choosing an agent, consider, we urge you to consider Natalie – Natalie Sjaardema
Natalie had a Mobile Home listed at Rancho Casitas where you own the land and the HOA is just $155 per month. She walked me through the sale with ease and kept things moving swiftly. We closed in record time and all was conducted professionally and with good explaining. I like her and will recommend her to anyone who asks for a Realtor in the Valley here. – Natalie Sjaardema
Natalie has almost all the listings in the Rancho Casitas Mobile Home Park. She made the whole process of buying my 2 units so smooth and easy. She knows more about the market and the specifics of buying and selling these kinds of properties (mobile units on land which you own) than anyone in town. Not to mention that she is no respecter of total sale amount - she works just as hard on a property for $70k as for $700k. She just a great agent who is very responsive. I would recommend her to anyone, and everyone. – Natalie Sjaardema
Natalie was wonderful to work with! She knew we had a short time frame to find our home due to job relocation, and she handled our search with ease. She was easy to reach when we needed her, answered the phone more frequently than any agent I have ever seen. She is very patient, and creative with her ideas and queries. We can honestly say she went above and beyond for us...she did not stop until she found us the perfect house, and we will be forever grateful. We highly recommend her! Natalie is truly an expert in her field. Thank you again for everything Natalie!! – Natalie Sjaardema
There's a reason why Natalie has been my realtor for over 15 years! She's a true professional at what she does and is always available throughout the entire process. If you're looking for a realtor that makes you feel like family and never leaves you hanging, you'll want Natalie working for you! – Natalie Sjaardema
Natalie showed us homes in PGA West in 2015 and 2016. We finally bought and we LOVE it here! She is very courteous, cheerful and knowledgeable in all areas regarding purchase information, lenders, utility connection fees etc... Extremely helpful, always going above and beyond! I will ALWAYS look to this lady for any needs I may have :) Thank you – Natalie Sjaardema
Natalie was very professional and in my opinion went out of her way on multiple occasions to help resolve problems that arose with the sale and settlement of my Father’s house. She was always courteous and respectful of our time and concerns. She answered questions, offered suggestions and recommended reliable people to handle problems and repairs that needed to be made in order to sell the house. When the first contract was cancelled, through no fault of hers (or ours), she was very diligent in continuing the marketing of the house and finding another legitimate buyer in a very short period of time. I will, and have, recommend her to several people I know that are looking for a home or considering selling their home. Natalie really is THE BEST! – Natalie Sjaardema
I am very pleased with several real estate purchases we made with Natalie Sjaardema! She was amazingly knowledgeable and diligent at moving the transaction from day one to closure. She addressed all of our conditions and questions promptly. I will continue to recommend Natalie as the most outstanding agent in the Coachella Valley! – Natalie Sjaardema
Natalie did an excellent job on the sale of our existing home. She was responsive to all requests and was a pleasure to do business with. Natalie is an excellent guide for negotiations and the buyers gave us top-dollar for our home. She and her staff were excellent in walking us through the sales process from the initial listing to the closing on the property. Use Arris Properties whenever you have any property transactions in La Quinta and beyond. – Natalie Sjaardema
Natalie helped us sell our first home and find our second. She really listened to what we were looking for and found many houses that were exactly what we wanted. In the meantime, she had a buyer for our first home and everything moved flawlessly from selling it to moving into the new house. 6 years later my husband was hired out of state and we had to sell the house quickly. We called Natalie and within the week, the house was on the market. Her marketing and advertising strategy worked flawlessly and the house sold very quickly. I would recommend Natalie and Bob to anyone interested in purchasing or selling real estate. They are true professionals with a positive attitudes and most importantly, they’re so easy to talk to and their communication throughout was excellent. – Natalie Sjaardema
This was a very fast transaction since my daughter and her fiancée had been dealing with Natalie. This was a very easy and pleasant experience. When I needed a question answered quickly I called and even if she was tied up, she got back to me quickly. I would definitely recommend her services to anyone. Maryann – Natalie Sjaardema
We worked with Natalie Sjaardema at Arris Properties to purchase a home in South Palm Desert. She took the time to understand exactly what we were looking for and found a house that exceeded our expectations, and came in at our budget. Her professionalism was refreshing and helped to keep us on track during the entire process. In addition, when the Sellers agent was having difficulty in getting inspections scheduled, and services turned on (we purchased a foreclosure) Natalie stepped in and got the job done. If it wasn't for Nat, we might still be looking for a house. Call her first!! – Natalie Sjaardema
Natalie is one of the best realtors in La Quinta. We tried several realtors before meeting her and after one day of looking at properties with Natalie, we knew something was different. It was easy to see that she had our best interests at heart and was not after just a quick commission. She was extremely generous with her time and shared a wealth of knowledge about the industry, making us informed buyers. It doesn't matter the time of day, she is on her phone working for you. I would highly recommend Natalie if you want someone that listens to what you want, genuinely cares about what you need and works really hard to make it happen for you. We have found a Realtor/Friend for a lifetime. – Natalie Sjaardema
Natalie really knows her stuff! She's a go-getter who is perceptive of what the market is and is great at listening to what you're looking for. I like her persistence and energy also. She also knows a lot about the geographic area, as well as about the real estate market, in general. She offers insights that only her experience in the business would provide. I would highly recommend her for anyone looking into real estate in the Coachella Valley in general. – Natalie Sjaardema
We were very Blessed by finding Natalie. She was wonderful to us from the very start. Very personable, knew her business, and made a very difficult moving process, smooth and easy. She made our buying experience a turn-key operation, from the beginning to the end we had no worries. Anyone who can have Natalie as their agent is in for a great experience. We tell everyone we know about how she helped us find the right house at the right price. We say thanks again Natalie! – Natalie Sjaardema
Natalie is a true go getter! She worked harder for me than I ever expected anyone to do. We spent over nine months together finding what I consider to be the perfect house for me. She was never impatient with my selectiveness and she was more than ready to take a morning, or afternoon, throughout the search period to look at homes either she or I found. Her experience as a Realtor definitely shined once we began the purchase process. She knew all the right people to put me in contact with to be most beneficial to me in relation to cost, expertise and speed. I have recommended Natalie many times to friends and colleagues. If I decide to upgrade, I without a doubt will seek out her help again. – Natalie Sjaardema
Natalie is an excellent Agent who looks out for the well-being of her clients, be they buyers or sellers. she helped us out of a tight jam and went well above and beyond what was expected, even for things where she would not be compensated. I recommend her highly. – Natalie Sjaardema
Now, after almost 2 years, with the help of Natalie, I am going to live my dream, not just in any house, in any area, but in the perfect house, right where I wanted to be - with everything I had hoped for and more!!! I would definitely recommend Natalie Sjaardema. She is 100% on top of what she does and she CARES! Which is why, in giving this rating about Natalie, I am also basing my opinion on Natalie’s commitment, honesty, integrity and, her dedication to her buyers and their needs. Her expertise, knowledge of location, response and negotiation abilities go, as I stated above, far beyond 5 stars. Anyone needing a Buyer’s or Seller’s Agent needs to look no further then Natalie. There is no one else I would recommend. – Natalie Sjaardema
We bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $290K in the La Quinta Cove. October- 2010 started a 2 yr journey to find just the right home and live my dream of "Loving God, helping people and living in La Quinta!! " Thanks to Natalie at Arris Properties that dream has now become a reality! Natalie’s strong dedication to making sure that I was not only satisfied, but happy as well… was refreshing and admirable. She could have sold me just any house but she didn't, she kept on looking with me, to find that perfect home. Thank you so very much and God Bless you Natalie! – Natalie Sjaardema
Natalie was very helpful in guiding me through the process of buying our Indio home. She was very helpful and had good local knowledge and many vendors to help us spruce it up. She arranged for my home inspection, recommended a lender, followed up with my lender, and assisted me greatly with negotiations. Natalie was very professional and extremely responsive when I had a question or concern regarding the process. I highly recommend Ms. Natalie. – Natalie Sjaardema
NATALIE SJAARDEMA stands by her mission to consistently provide quality, innovative and exceptional real estate services. When I first met Ms. Sjaardema through a fellow co-worker who advised me that she was the best realtor in Palm Desert, I got excited and was ready to find my first home. Starting, with a simple phone conversation I knew things were going to be fine (I was terrified leaving an apartment to a home) but she was so comforting, knowledgeable, approachable and very professional through the entire process. Yes! things turned out just fine. I been living in my home now for 5 years and just love it. So, I will recommend her again and again to anyone who is looking for a GREAT Realtor not just ANY Realtor. – Natalie Sjaardema
This Lady knows practically everything there is to know about real estate. Extremely informative, very hard working, and very patient dealing with someone as indecisive as myself lol. Natalie was an absolute pleasure to work with. Highly Recommend. – Natalie Sjaardema
Natalie Sjaardema is a very professional realtor with a great deal of knowledge. My husband and I purchased our first home a couple of months ago and Natalie did an excellent job helping us during the home buying process. I was 24 years old and I really didn’t have a clue about purchasing a home, but Natalie made sure we understood everything before going through with the process. She sat down with us and explained everything, step by step, and she always asked if we understood everything before we continued on to something else. She made sure we were happy customers. We looked at several different model homes until we found the one that fit us. Natalie communicated with us throughout the entire process. She always informed us about everything that was going on with the home. She was very patient with us throughout this process. We could call, text or email her about any questions or concerns with the home and she would always respond in a timely manner. Natalie is really knowledgeable and she knows all about real estate. Once we closed on our home we knew everything there was to know about purchasing a home because of Natalie . I would definitely recommend her to anyone that is trying to purchase a home. She is the BEST! – Natalie Sjaardema
Natalie always has the best interests of her clients in mind. Her follow up is impeccable and you can always be assured that she will be there every step of the way. Her pure professionalism is hard to find these days. Kenneth & Jeanne Fisher...posted by Natalie – Natalie Sjaardema
My first impression of Natalie was of a genuine warmth and a love of people. Her charm is not forced, not intrusive and definitely not fake. She is extremely knowledgeable, but more than that she is savvy and street smart with an old fashioned common sense, which is not common. She genuinely enjoys her job, so she is free with good advice whether she thinks it is to her benefit or not. She has the client's interest at heart. She would not sell you a house that she thinks might give you an unpleasant surprise later down the line. I whole heartedly endorse her as an Agent and I have already started telling any friend who will listen about her. Do yourself a favor and sell or buy your real Estate through Natalie at Arris Properties. Marion Boyd...posted by Natalie – Natalie Sjaardema
Stuart and Patricia Rogers Wrote...."Natalie came to me recommended by others. She was extremely helpful and knowledgeable in helping me secure my current home. After escrow closed, she was continually available with guidance as to how to address problems with my home warranty company. I would highly recommend Natalie and her company to any person." – Natalie Sjaardema
Art P. wrote: " My wife and I were very impressed with Natalie, who quickly found several homes within our price range and was able to schedule visits for the one day when we were in town. Throughout the process of buying the home (which we did from out of state), we relied on her for advice on a number of matters that came up, and she acted not only as a real estate agent but as our advisor. We would recommend her to anyone looking for a home in the La Quinta Area." – Natalie Sjaardema
Natalie did exactly what she promised and sold my house in 27 days at a price I never expected in this current market. Natalie actually rolled up her sleeves and went out of her way to help me clean up my house. In all the years I've moved, I've never had a Realtor work so hard to please me. I would definitely endorse Natalie and if I ever move back to the states will gladly utilize her services again, anywhere in California, not just the Coachella Valley. Endorsed by Allan & Judith Steinburg...posted by Natalie – Natalie Sjaardema
Submitted by Cherish Lindmann: We picked Natalie because she was a nice young lady that reminded us of our own daughter. She was honest with us and took her time explaining the process of selling the house. She helped us get some things fixed in the house by using her own vendors and even coordinated the process. I would recommend Natalie to anyone. – Natalie Sjaardema
Andy Adler submitted: I would highly recommend Natalie Sjaardema to anyone wanting to buy or sell a house in the Coachella Valley. We had our house listed with another Real Estate Company for 9 months, and the agent only showed the house 4 times. We fired our original agent and hired Natalie. She held Open Houses and showed the house 6 times in the first 2 weeks of the sales term. We had an offer 3 weeks later and we closed a month later. Natalie is very professional, knowledgeable and wonderful to work with. – Natalie Sjaardema
Natalie did an excellent job helping us locate a building for our new business. We told her what we were looking for and she found it! It was in the perfect location to open an auto body repair facility with room to expand if we chose to do so down the road. My husband and I had never purchased commercial real estate before but with Bob and Natalie’s expert knowledge, they were able to explain the procedure to us and made the whole experience go very smoothly. Everything from start to finish went through without a hitch. We have now been in business for almost 9 years. We continue to refer Arris Properties to anyone that we know who is either looking for commercial real estate or residential. As a matter of fact, Bob just helped our oldest son find and buy his first home! If you are looking for professional and knowledgeable real estate experts who get the job done, then Arris Properties is your best bet.
