We've been selling homes in Palm Springs for about two decades now at The Paul Kaplan Group.  Some people are buying vacation homes, some are looking for 2nd homes and others are considering moving here full time- regardless, the same questions seem to be on the minds of everyone considering buying a home in Palm Springs-  We'll  address some of the most common questions here:

At The Paul Kaplan Group, we love to spread the word about the many unique sights and traditions of Palm Springs, like Robolights. Started by local resident Kenny Irwin Jr. in 1986 when he was just 12 years old, Robolights is a robot-themed light display at the Irwin family home in the Movie Colony East neighborhood of Palm Springs, not far from Frank Sinatra’s Twin Palms Estate. 

Robolights grew out of Irwin’s affinity and talent for making robots, using found objects and whatever materials he could get his hands on. Irwin, who attended the California College of Arts in Oakland, has continued creating art over the years and grew Robolights to become an annual tradition, save for a few skipped years.

The building, originally designed by renowned architect E. Stewart Williams, underwent renovations led by the firm of Marmol Radziner to transform the former bank into the museum. The international style building
