Harcourts Desert Homes Lists Frank Sinatra's Property

Topics: Agent Life, Property 0


Scott Palermo and Jim Sanak of Harcourts Desert Homes, are co-listing a unique property called Villa Maggio, once owned and designed by the great, Frank Sinatra.

The two Harcourts REALTORS® were approached by close real estate friends, to represent this iconic property together and they immediately accepted. The seller wanted top representation in the Palm Springs area and Scott and Jim were the ideal REALTORS® for the job.

“We knew we had to take part in the sale of this property, when a Frank Sinatra song started playing in the restaurant we were sitting in,” mentions Harcourts Desert Homes Managing Broker, Scott Palermo. “It was fate.”

Their excitement towards selling Villa Maggio stems from multiple directions. Not only is the home uniquely located overlooking magical panoramic views of the Coachella Valley, but Sinatra himself had his blueprint on the entire Villa Maggio property. Every inch of the property has Sinatra flare, from palm tree wall paper to built-in secret passage ways. The vast compound consists of a giant main house including two guest houses, three separate suites, a pool house, two saunas, eight fireplaces, tennis and basketball courts, and parking for two dozen vehicles.

“Representing one of the most legendary music performers in the world is incredible, but another level of our excitement is knowing the history left behind inside the home,” explains Palermo.

This seven and a half acre estate epitomizes the true nature of Palm Springs, and it was here that Frank Sinatra put the town on the map. Palm Springs symbolizes a lifestyle of peace and relaxation, which created the perfect atmosphere for Sinatra’s “getaway” destination. He lived there during the golden era of Hollywood, brought other celebrities to the area, and in hand brought major attention to Palm Springs.

Villa Maggio has been listed for over a year and is searching for the right buyer who appreciates the value of its luxury. With Harcourts Desert Homes now involved in the listing, and their recent accreditation in Harcourts Auctions, they plan to have a hand in the success of this property sale. The Harcourts non-distressed auction platform has the potential to be the perfect method of attraction for the house.

Harcourts Auctions offers another method of listing real estate in a new, innovative and personalized fashion. It gives buyers a transparent arena to compete in purchasing the property and gives sellers an opportunity to complete all inspections up front for a clean and easy purchase process.
