Kathy - Excellent list on what you do for your buyers.  What isn't on your list is how much insight into the area they are going to get when they work with you.  They also don't know how much fun they are going to have with you as they search for the right place in La Quinta!  Two more things that you do that make buying a home a wonderful experience!
