About Me


Something you should know about me:

I am a lifelong resident of the Coachella Valley for over 40 plus years. One of the very few REALTORS that has seen this area grow and flourish. I grew up in this area where I became a world ranked ATP tennis professional (visit ATPWorldTour.com – on the search bar type in Ossil Macavinta), traveled internationally, and have played, competed, and taught in many of the tennis club resorts in the desert. I have attended the educational system from k-12 in the Palm Springs Unified School District, through the local community college, as well as California State University, San Bernardino on the Palm Desert Campus. I have been an educator for over 20 years; wherein, I work in the best school district as well as the BEST high school considered by the US News and Washington Post as one of the BEST high schools in America – Top 1 percent in the USA. In closing, I am confident that your experience with me will be one that is long-term and beyond the scope of when we close our purchase and/or sale of your chosen property.

Where It All Started:

Ossil Macavinta (pronounced: O-sell Maka-vin-ta) has lived in the Palm Springs area for over 40 plus years. He moved to Palm Springs, California at the age of six from the Philippines. He was educated in the public schools in the desert. He has observed, lived, and experienced the growth in the Palm Springs area from when there was primarily natural desert surroundings to what is seen currently with many golf courses, swimming pools, and a rich culture of heavenly paradise.

Tennis Lifestyle:

In his late teens and early twenties, Ossil competed in tennis tournaments all over Southern California. He was ranked #16 in the Men’s Open and won the California Division II Community College Championship in singles, doubles, and the team won the title in the early eighties. He competed internationally achieving a world ATP ranking reaching 662 in singles and 457 in doubles with wins in the top 200 in singles and top 50 in doubles. He traveled to many places around the world. Domestically, he traveled to Hawaii, Florida, Louisiana, Georgia, North Carolina, and West Virginia, passing through many areas on the East coast. Internationally, he competed in Mexico, Canada, Spain, France, bringing him to places such as Monaco, Italy and Greece. He also, traveled and competed in the Philippines (where he was born), Thailand, Indonesia, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Japan. His love for tennis was cut short at the age of 24, due to the passing of his sweet loving mother. From 24 to 27 years old, he taught at various tennis clubs and resorts in the desert. He has had the privilege of instructing high profile people such as the CEO/Owners of Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts, CEO of StarKist, the owners of Black Angus and many other celebrities.

Education Journey:

After dropping out of college at 19 to pursue a career in tennis, Ossil returned to college to honor his mother’s request by obtaining a college degree. He re-entered at the age of 27 and became a professional student. He obtained his Associate of Arts in Business Administration and Economics; Bachelors in Business Administration with a concentration in Management; Masters in Business with a focus in Organizational Management; and finally, his doctorate in Instructional Technology and Distance Education. He has been an educator for over 18 years inspiring and motivating high schools students to achieve their God-given potential. He was chosen by his peers as Teacher of the Year in 2002 at Palm Desert High School and was awarded the Top 10 Most Inspirational Teacher of almost 80 teachers as most recent as 2012. He continues to make an impact in the community!

In real estate he has made remarkable strides by obtaining his license within 5 months and within less than a year he has obtained his broker’s license, BPOR certification (Broker Price Opinion Resource) allowing him the skills and knowledge to effectively evaluate real estate as a professional. He earned his SRES designation (Senior Real Estate Specialist) giving him the knowledge and expertise to understand the scope and depth of what senior citizens, or Baby Boomers needs when it comes to downsizing to a smaller home, renovating property to meet their needs, and as a Baby Boomer himself, understand their lifestyle choices. Most recently, he has acquired the ePRO certification, giving him the understanding on how to connect with others on social media and proper deployment of Internet and mobile technologies.

Additionally, Dr. Macavinta is awaiting to achieve the following designations as he is a candidate for the Accredited Luxury Home Specialist (ALHS) designation, Certified Residential Specialist (CRS) designation, and Accredited Buyer’s Representative (ABR) designation. All this to be an expert in areas of interest to his current and future clients. I want to be your choice as your real estate broker. Call me today or let's connect on LinkedIn.com.
