Nyla Patzner is a Palm Springs native whose family has called the Coachella Valley home for five generations, and she's watched the area grow into one of the world's top destinations. After attending Chapman University and gaining professional experience in San Francisco, her passion for the desert led her back. Today, as an agent with Pacific Sotheby's International Realty, she offers unmatched knowledge of the area's amenities with specialization in luxury properties, golf communities and income-producing properties. Patzner honed her marketing, public relations and business development skills in the highly competitive tourism and luxury travel markets. She also gained invaluable experience in commercial property construction and management and uses this knowledge to guide clients looking to purchase, sell or develop investment properties. She's traveled extensively and understands the nuances of capturing distinguished international buyers through the Pacific Sotheby's network. Patzner is active in several charitable organizations, including serving on the board of the Women Leaders Forum; Big Brothers, Big Sisters; the Young Professional Committee at Sunnylands; and co-chair and supporter of Animal Samaritans. She's also a member of the Leadership Coachella Valley Class of 2014 and of the California Department of Realtors.
