Proudest Moment:

Biggest Challenge:
Stopping myself from buying old car parts, classic trailers, or another old car.

Racquet Club Estates, Vista Las Palmas, Old Las Palmas, Deepwell, I also love Rancho Mirage (Thunderbird Heights and Tamarisk), Indian Wells (swooning over the Doty homes along Fairway Drive). Palm Springs has a lot of great condo communities: Canyon View Estates, Ocotillo Lodge, and Park Imperial South.

#1 Place to Dine Out in PS:

Lemon Meringue or Rhubarb (that my mom made) - Hi Mom!

The Paul Kaplan Group is:
Not an office. It's a great place to spend my days. I learn things every day. The days go by quickly because we're having so much fun - most days. At least.


Matthew moved to Palm Springs in 2003 after falling in love with the valley's architecture. He walks-the-walk of a mid-century modern lifestyle with his Alexander home in the Twin Palms neighborhood, his vintage cars, clothes, and furnishings. Nominated as Palm Springs Life's Top Realtor list in 2019.

Matt's favorite thing during Modernism Week is the Vintage Trailer Show. He's shown four classic camping rigs (among them 2 Airstream trailers and a vintage camper van) of his own, and taken top awards for three of them.

From rural Ohio to Tokyo, Matt brings extensive experience of living abroad and travel (53 countries and counting), along with strong educational background (BFA and MA in education) to his experience in real estate.

For Matt design is an integral part of his life- he will help you find your perfect Palm Springs lifestyle and the perfect Palm Springs home.
