Haverkate Real Estate Services for Sellers 

Why list with us ?
Knowledge, Passion and Experience with Modernism

Owners of an architectural home in the Palm Springs area will want to meet with the Haverkate Real Estate Team to discuss a unique business plan for the marketing and sale of modern and contemporary properties. The Haverkate Team accesses the widest audience of prospective modern home buyers and delivers targeted solutions to individuals who are most likely to this kind of home. In short, the Team provides all the services of traditional real estate professionals, and then goes significantly further. 

Better Nation-Wide and International Internet Exposure

Ralph Haverkate is a mid-century modern aficionado, a business man, an artist and an internet specialist.  His websites appear on the first page of the internet search engines - so your home will be there too!  These sites, , and, are leading sources of architectural properties for sale in the desert. Because they are so visible on the World Wide Web, your listing is accessible to an incredibly vast audience. Ralph can work in several languages and is one of the 3,000 members of The International Real Estate Federation (FIABCI) international network of cooperating real estate agents.  His global reach is a distinct advantage to home sellers in our global economy.

Better Specific Data - More Accurate Pricing

Wayne Longman is a graduate electrical engineer, also internet-savvy, who worked years in national and international regulatory and standards forums.  He turns his analytical skills into understanding and presenting a unique and clear picture of the past, existing and emerging area, and local real estate market conditions.  As a result, sellers will know as precisely as possible the outcomes of different pricing strategies.  He counts among his past clients many non-nationals and several real estate industry executives.

Better Local Exposure

Both Wayne and Ralph are Broker-Associates with Tarbell, Realtors, the oldest and largest privately owned real estate brokerage in Southern California.  Along with ensuring clients of a stable, long term company to deal with, this enables the advantage of Tarbell's Preferred Property program that invests thousands of dollars on "old media" advertisements on a property.

The Team does state of the art marketing. With their own professional photo and videographer, they create custom websites for each property that are easily found on the web. These are also sent to the more than 3000 international Brokers, which are part of Ralph's FIABCI connection.  Paid spot advertising will feature listings on mainstream internet sites such as, Zillow and Trulia. A listing is also announced by e-mail to a database of hundreds of interested registrants on the specialized websites. 

More Buyers

The high Google ranking of the Haverkate websites means they are easily found by casual searchers. The website offers buyers an advanced property search feature so they can immediately see all of the mid-century modern or high-end desert contemporary listings in the entire area. This website features your listing in a separate section and will display it as house of the month on an alternating basis.

Net More Money

The Haverkate Team has worked with a multitude of sellers and buyers of architecturally significant homes.  Our philosophy is that significant architecture carries unique value and requires and deserves specialized attention beyond standard real estate channels. Niche marketing will net more money from your home than selling it as just another property.

Staying in Escrow

The Team has an optional list of services for sellers well beyond the norm leading up to the sale.  At the time of sale, they will ensure an appraiser is given the right comparables, and the seller is updated on recent sales activity. 

Latest Technology

The Team uses the latest technology to optionally sign sale documents on a computer screen, which is excellent for distant or travelling buyers and sellers. 
Residential real estate has changed - it's becoming an Internet driven business, where buyers diligently research and are acutely aware of the market. This requires your property to stand out from the crowd.  It still remains a people business, requiring a professional and consistent demeanor. The Haverkate Real Estate Team excels by combining technology with strong communication and a well developed business acumen. If you are the seller of an architecturally significant home, you should meet them.

Architectural real estate is our business and we have a business plan that will work for you.
