Meet George Klenkar

Real estate agent George Klenkar knows that the best way to provide personalized customer care is to let his clients know that they are understood and appreciated as unique individuals. Moving from Ohio to New York and then to California, one of George’s greatest life lessons was learning the value of adapting his approach as needed to successfully assist clients with a wide variety of needs while forging strong relationships along the way.

After graduating from New York City’s prestigious Columbia College, George quickly found his niche in luxury retail. He built a rewarding 27-year career at the famed Cartier jewelry house, where varying positions and projects took him all across the United States, Europe and Asia. His business travels gave him endless opportunities to provide service tailored to clients and colleagues from a wide array of backgrounds.

When George discovered Palm Springs and experienced the incredible beauty of the desert, he soon realized that he could translate his skills of service to the realm of real estate. He thrives on helping people feel understood when dealing with something as personal and important as buying or selling a home, and he finds the connections he makes to be deeply fulfilling. The enthusiastic feedback that he consistently receives from his clients validates his efforts and motivates him to continue to serve at the highest, most personalized level possible.
