This person Anayeli Zavala uses her position with the city of Desert Hot Springs to scam investors. I invested in buying a home in Desert Hot Springs along with my girlfriend but I was denied the purchase due to zoning nad permit issues. IT turned out that Anayeli and her boyfriend picked up the property months later for nearly half the price. Ironically after investigations, the property is still zoned and the permit issue was still a problem which would prevent a buyer to purchase it. | The Bickfords and Zavala are tied to unscrupulous dealings which allows them to purchase dozens of properties in the city. It’s not only unfair but probably not legal. | As a matter of curiosity I made a bid that was way over the asking price of a property but I was declined. I later found out that the Bickfords bought the property for a fraction of my bid. I want people to know that this kind of corruption needs to be addressed so that fairness to the public is kept fair and honest. | I will never buy a home in Desert Hot Springs!
