Gene Hays Gene Hays | REALTOR® | 415-336-3536  |

If you were to ask Gene just what he loves about his home, his reply would be I love the atrium in the center of my home the best. I have always loved the midcentury modern architecture and how open and light a home can feel. Sparse and clean lines have never been a part of my past, as my mom and dad were antique dealers. Mom always had the house packed with tons of antique everything. Five years ago, I fell in love with the floor to ceiling glass and amazing views from many different homes. And then, Lo and Behold… Palm Springs Ca shows up and it was love at first sight. Shortly after, I moved to Palm Springs, and I am doing what I have always wanted to do, and that is to be a Realtor. I have always loved helping people. Now I can help them in finding their dream home. Now I can help my clients through this process with the upmost passion.
