As a Master Trainer, I have almost a decade of experience as a personal trainer. I earned my first certification while deployed to Afghanistan during my five year service in the US Army where I served as a Military Police Sergeant. Going into the military, I was overweight and out of shape. During my first year of service, I had a leader who showed me how to use the gym to not only to get in better shape, but to allow it to be a sort of mental and emotional therapy. The feeling of going into the gym and working until all your stress is gone is the best gift to give to yourself. Fitness isn't only for your body; it's for your mind, body and spirit. It's that feeling I love introducing to people and why I am so passionate about spreading my knowledge to others.
I am a financial advisor focusing on providing 401(k), 403(b) and other retirement solutions to businesses, corporations, and nonprofits. Here are some of the services I provide:
•Establishing new 401(k) plans, SEP IRA, and SIMPLE IRA accounts to businesses, corporations, and sole proprietors.
•Reviewing 401(k) plans and offering improved pricing and/or service models to meet your company's needs.
•Group educational meetings and one-on-one meetings to all plan participants or individuals to help them navigate through their retirement plans or individual brokerage accounts.
•For individuals and families, I place a big focus on the financial planning process and ongoing investment portfolio management for health care professionals and business owners.
A bit about myself:
I grew up in Palm Springs, CA and had the pleasure to enjoy a great part of my life in Orange County, California. I am currently based out of Palm Desert, CA but I am registered to do business in Texas as well. I am actively involved in the community, and I am currently sitting in the Board of Directors for the John F, Kennedy Memorial Foundation.
I enjoy my career, and probably a bit too much! However, in my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family and attending community events.
Feel free to connect with me here or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org anytime if you would like to get in touch. You can also feel free to reach my office line at 760-862-6749.
Title Insurance is different from other forms of insurance because it insures against events that occurred before the policy was issued, as opposed to insuring against events in the future, as health, property of life insurance do. Title Insurance protects the interest of the property owners and lenders against legitimate or false title claims by owners or lien holders. Title problems are discovered in more than 1/3 of residential real estate transactions. These defects must be resolved prior to closing escrow. The most common problems are existing liens, unpaid mortgages, and recording errors of names, addresses and legal descriptions.

Marlene is extremely well-rounded and has leveraged this broad range of experience as she became a REALTOR® and ultimately found herself leading her own brokerage firm, Desert Properties Realtors.

Designation:Palm Desert Law Group, APC
Department:Palm Desert Law Group, APC
Pantea formed Palm Desert Law Group, APC specifically to focus on the needs of families with young children as well as small business owners. Prior to starting this firm, she saw too many instances where the all too common “one-size fits all” estate planning failed, leaving families in court and conflict for years. She also saw that there was a huge disconnect between attorneys practicing estate planning and those practicing business law, such that the complex needs of small business owners were never fully met. And she wanted to change that.
Pantea aims to bring back the “old-school” practice of lawyering where she can be a trusted source to guide her clients through the decisions they need to make to protect their families and businesses.
Pantea graduated from Seton Hall University, School of Law and from New York University, College of Arts and Sciences. After graduating from law school, Pantea served as Senior Associate at the Law Office of David Philipson, where she represented high-net-worth families and their businesses, before opening her own practice in the Coachella Valley.
Pantea is a dedicated member of her business community, serving as the Special Events Committee Chair of the Desert Estate Planning Council and an active member of the Women Leaders Forum of the Coachella Valley. During the summer months, she devotes a few weeks of her time serving as a camp counselor for her favorite organization, Camp to Belong, which reunites siblings who have been separated in the foster system for a fun (and often challenging!) week of memory building and family bonding.
Pantea lives in Palm Springs with her husband, her step-daughter, and their fur-baby, Ruby. She is licensed to practice law in California.
