Integrity. Honesty. Ethics. Communication.
These are the pillars on which Eric Morcus stands.
Without these he is nothing.
His family has been involved with real estate and development since the 1970's in Colorado.
After graduating with a degree in Architectural Engineering from the University of Colorado, which gave him critical thinking and analysis, Eric decided to get a real estate brokers license, which was held for many years, even after the West compelled him to move to San Diego, during the downturn in Colorado's economy.
After moving to San Diego, he quickly found a job in outside sales in one of the hardest sales professions out there-selling copiers door to door. Eric learned determination, grit, negotiations, but most importantly, the skill of listening.
During this time, he earned the California sales license in Real Estate in 1989, and then three years later, decided to have matching bookends and gained the Real Estate Brokers license to match it from Colorado.
Having the knowledge of a real estate broker has provided him with 3-4 times the schooling and training of a sales licensee, to benefit both buyers and sellers of real estate.
Eric has experience in working for two large national mortgage companies which has given him in depth knowledge of the mortgage and qualification process, which further benefits his clients.
With the successful career in outside selling he enjoyed, real estate was always a passionate hobby. Whenever there was an article or news concerning real estate, he quickly devoured the information, and still learns about real estate daily.
After leaving the copier industry after 20 years, having held both sales and sales management positions, his family commitments took him to Palm Springs, CA, to help his family run a series of successful restaurants.
In 2014, he opened his own restaurant, Kaiser Grille Palm Desert, naming it after his father who opened the first Kaiser Grille over 20 years before, just a few blocks away. The people business is what he loves, because he gets a deep satisfaction "serving" people and putting them first.
Eric is focused on helping other people get what they want in life. In this manner he receives what he wants in life.
Awards and Accolades: "Best steakhouse, best seafood, best happy hour, best American cuisine, etc" in Palm Desert on Yelp, Tripadvisor, Desert Sun, Palm Springs Life, etc.
These years of experience in the Coachella valley in the hospitality community has allowed Eric to forge relationships with clients, local governments, city councils, school districts, businesses as well as the many people who call the Greater Palm Springs area home.
His involvement in the community is my way of paying it forward for future generations and to make a difference in the valley.
Eric believes personal relationships are the most important things in life.
It is better to give than receive and he regularly gives back to the community that supported him throughout the years.
Volunteering and community involvement:
Chairman of the Board of the Palm Desert Area of Chamber of Commerce 2019-2020
Board member for Palm Springs Hospitality Association 2008-2021
Convention and Visitors Bureau-Greater Palm Springs
He is involved in Leadership Academy, California Desert Association of Real Estate, 2023 as well as Government Affairs and Sponsorship.
It is with extreme gratitude that he is thankful for what he has and for the opportunities that are before him.
