Gregory Tormo, Realtor®
Curious; passionate; spontaneous when the opportunity arises but organized when I need to be; a good listener.
Handing the keys to the new home of my very first client! We worked so closely together, searching all over town for their perfect Palm Springs home, negotiating the deal, and then progressing through escrow. I couldn’t hide my joy – I must have had the biggest grin on my face when I met them at their new front door. And I get that same feeling every time I give the keys to a new Palm Springs homeowner.
Finding enough time in the day to do all the things I love to do in the desert.
My dog, Harvey, likes to remind me it’s time to eat every day at 5:30 AM!
Catching the sunrise through the palm trees, sipping a latte at Ernest Coffee, introducing out-of-towners to the beauty of mid-century architecture, walking the dogs while the sun sets behind Mt. San Jacinto, three mahi-mahi tacos and a mai tai at Tonga Hut, midnight swim in the pool.
Fotomat Kiosk. How and why someone in authority thought it was a good idea to give a 15-year-old kid complete control over a small retail store is beyond me! But I’m forever grateful because I learned how to run a small business at an early age. From managing inventory to keeping accurate books, these are skills that help in my real estate business today.
Favorite Palm Springs Neighborhood:
Canyon Palms – the hidden neighborhood and best-kept secret in town.
#1 Place to Dine Out in PS:
John Henry’s (Palm Springs) – make a reservation for an outdoor table; La Tablita (Cathedral City) – moderately priced deliciousness; Crossroads Cafe (Joshua Tree) – downhome food and you might run into that musician you saw the night before at Pappy & Harriet’s in Pioneertown.
Style & Soul.
Pie of Choice:
Peach pie from Billy Reed’s! Too bad it’s only available during peach season.
The Paul Kaplan Group is:
My home away from home. They’re the family I wish I grew up with and am grateful to have in my life now.
Greg Tormo has a passion for the fun side of mid-century design - spanning music, fashion, and architecture. Modernist, Polynesian, even Disco-inspired homes can be found in the desert paradise of Palm Springs. Are you looking for that elusive, one-of-a-kind property? Or maybe you already own one and are looking for the right person to help you sell it - someone who understands why your home is unique and needs a different marketing approach to reach the kind of buyer who will not only appreciate it, but will pay the right price for it. New to town? Ask Greg about the different neighborhoods of Palm Springs. There are over 45 different ones, each with its own architectural character. He'll show you a Spanish colonial revival style bungalow where you can share sangria and tapas with your friends, show you an iconic butterfly roof mod masterpiece where you can sip lemonade poolside, or take you to a Polynesian-inspired A-frame perfect for mixing Mai Tais and enjoying views of Mount San Jacinto.
