    Agent: Alanna Foudy

    Four years ago, we decided to move from Salt Lake City (where we had lived for twenty-three years) to the southeast Phoenix valley (a place we had never been before) for the purpose of purchasing our first home. Through the real estate services team of ADP, Elizabeth’s employer, we were referred to Alanna Foudy. We distinctly remember our initial interaction with Alanna during a phone interview. Her enthusiasm was infectious and she exhibited a sincere interest in our motivations and desires. She was also able to temper our fears and insecurities regarding this significant financial transaction and major life change. After speaking with Alanna on the phone for about thirty minutes, we were confident she was the right person to lead our home search. Alanna took the lead from the start, giving us access to her on-line portal so we could begin searching from afar and providing expert advice regarding neighborhoods, school districts, and HOA’s. When we visited the Phoenix area to tour homes, she had organized our “favorite properties list” into an all-day, on-the-ground search (which she conducted) that culminated in a successful initial offer on the final home we saw that day. Alanna also referred us to competent inspection professionals and helped negotiate a significant roof repair with the seller. But where Alanna really earned our respect and gratitude was the detail-oriented approach she took with the voluminous paperwork associated with the sale and our financing. Much of the back-and-forth took place while she was in Phoenix and we were in Salt Lake, but her regular updates, both on the phone and through email, made us feel like we were just down the street from her.  Fast forward four years and we find ourselves looking to upgrade to a larger home. As if no time had lapsed from our latest interactions four years ago, Alanna enthusiastically joined us again, listening to our concerns and showing extraordinary patience with us through a somewhat frustrating first month of searching limited listings. Seemingly always available (she showed us properties in the morning, at night and on the weekends) and never, EVER without a smile and an upbeat personality, she kept us sane during a very stressful time. And, once again, we found a perfect property…counter-offered to an acceptable price and breezed through the inspection and escrow periods. We have never been happier as a couple/parents than we have been during our four years in Gilbert. We wonder why we didn’t make this move earlier in our lives. One thing is certain….we would not have made it here without the tireless efforts of a consummate professional…Alanna Foudy. We have, and will, strongly endorse her services to anyone looking to move to the Phoenix area. More importantly, we value her friendship and hope to maintain a relationship with her as our life in Arizona continues. — Lew and Elizabeth Carleton

    We hired Alanna Foudy to both sell our home, and then buy our new home.  This is the 4th real estate transaction we have made as a couple.  Needless to say, we have never been so impressed with a realtor!  We found a home that we were extremely interested in.  Alanna got us in to see it ahead of several other families.  Because of this, we were able to make an offer and purchase quickly.  She communicated so well with the other realtor, lender, and title company.  This communication made the transaction so much more smooth than anything we have ever experienced.  She has a way of staying on top of the transaction, even ahead of the transaction.  Even when little speed bumps came along, she was already working things out before we even had time to ask about it.  She really knows her stuff! Most of all we have been so impressed with Alanna during the sell of our home.  Even though there was a major slowdown in the market in our area, a government shutdown, and three major holidays, Alanna got our home sold for top dollar!  The marketing that she uses is exceptional!  She does everything from choosing a professional to take pictures of the home, to getting it out there online was just fantastic, to constantly communicating with realtors who show the home.  Lastly, when we had a few hiccups during our closing, again Alanna was constantly ahead of the game.  We feel like she was looking out for us 100% of the time, and we just cannot say enough positive things about Alanna Foudy.  She truly is a class act. — Monica and Warren Coates


    Agent: Sheri Jackson

    Sheri Jackson is an amazing realtor! After meeting with her the first time, I knew that she had the passion and drive to help find the right home for me.  Due to my busy schedule I was not able to visit every property, however Sheri personally reviewed the properties to determine if they would fit my needs. She then selected the best options for me to walk through. I immediately fell in love with the place and I am impressed she was able to find my dream condo in only one meeting.  The best part about the entire process was she made it so simple and easy for me to find a place I now call home.  I would personally recommend her expertise to anyone looking for a home or rental in the future. — Ashley Magitt

    A co-worker of mine had referred me to Sheri Jackson at Arizona Best Realty, because she was very happy with the professional and friendly service she received when she purchased her home. My husband and I were relocating from Chicago to the Phoenix.  Without any knowledge of the area and very limited time we couldn’t have been more pleased with the outcome. Within 48 hours, Sheri helped us narrow down a list of homes she prepared for us, encouraged us not to just settle and within 48 hours we were signing papers to a home that suited all of our needs.  Sheri was very knowledgeable and the made the house hunting experience A LOT OF FUN!!  We would personally recommend Sheri to anyone looking to purchase a home in the future. — Bob and Sue Horman


    Agent: Vicki Kaplan

    Having worked with many realtors over the years, you are the Best!  You know your market, took time early on to listen to our needs, stayed on top of all the details…you were an invaluable resource. — Russ and Karen G.

    Thank you for the fabulous job you did in helping us find and purchase a home in Scottsdale.  I have been involved in the legal and personal end of real estate for more than 35 years, and you are by far the most conscientious, helpful and competent real estate agent I have ever run across.  In short, you’re the best. — Craig and Charlotte H.

    Working with you was a great experience.  Your knowledge, consulting and negotiating skills made the selling process go so smoothly.  I will recommend you to my family, friends and anyone interested in selling or buying a home. — Judy B.

    We are so grateful for your diligence and patience in finding us our new home in Scottsdale. We appreciated your thoughtful approach, asking for feedback after viewing homes to discern our likes and dislikes and how well you listened and never imposed a judgment or your opinion.  We would not hesitate to recommend you as an agent to anyone selling or purchasing a home. We love our home and offer a heartfelt thank you! — Denise and Bob D.

    Steve and I can honestly say we have never dealt with a realtor who was so attentive to our needs during (and after) the purchasing process. Your unique combination of attending to the professional details…while maintaining a personal, caring connection is a true gift.  We truly appreciate all of the many “above and beyond” extras you did on our behalf. — Kathe and Steve P.

    Vicki is a truly dedicated professional.  Her commitment to giving exceptional personal service and her market knowledge were key to a successful and very rewarding experience when we purchased our home.  Getting this home is a dream come true and we could not be happier. — Bill and Tonni M.

    Helping us find the perfect home in Scottsdale was no easy feat considering we had no idea what we were looking for or even what area we were interested in.  You took the time to get to know us and help us narrow down first the area and then the type of home we wanted.  You never missed a beat and we could not be happier with our final choice. — Larry and Kim K.

    It is a pleasure to recommend Vicki.  I have had a business relationship with her for a number of years and can always count on her professionalism, honesty, and integrity.  I recommend her unreservedly. — Chris R.

    We listed our home at the worst time in the housing market.  Vicki guided us through the selling process; always keeping us informed and gave us answers to questions promptly.  We had a great working relationship and trusted her to do the best for us. — Heinz and Dorothea K.

    Thank you for all that you have done for us.  We know that without your patience and guidance, we probably would not have succeeded in getting this home. ” (Short Sale property) — Alex and Karen A.

    We learned very quickly how extremely knowledgeable and well informed Vicki is about the Scottsdale area. She listened to our needs and made our relocation from Houston, Texas to Scottsdale very quick, and easy and comfortable.  We have had a wonderful experience. — Karl and Lisa J.

    We relocated from the east coast to Phoenix and knew little about the area.  We needed someone we felt comfortable with and who could provide us with honest expertise so we could make informed decisions.  With Vicki’s guidance and counsel, we were able to afford a home that exceeded our dreams and within an excellent school district. — Cliff and Toni M.

    You are amazing!  You were able to give me all the important information in a concise and relevant way.  That skill is hard to find in any profession, so I want you to know how much I appreciate you and your help in our home search. — Betty L.


    Agent: David Koon

    David is one of the Best.The deal would have went smoother if I had not picked a bad lender.David still tried to work with the bad lender.And later got me a lender that approved the loan in 2 weeks.I am self employed and difficulty getting other agents and banks to work with me.David is a miracle worker.If you are serious about buying or selling call David Koon.You will not be disappointed. — Thomas Collett

    We could not have been happier with David’s local real estate knowledge, responsiveness and overall positive attitude. If we buy or sell a house in the greater Phoenix area again, David will be our realtor of choice! — Aaron Bean

    As much as I wanted to sell my rental that I remained upside down on I really didn’t think the market had turned enough to not have a loss and for me it was a matter of how much of a loss was I willing to accept. David was pleasant over the phone and suggested putting the home out there and see what happens. On day 2 we had 7 offers, 5 were equal to or above the asking price. Good call. David kept good contact with me and the Title Company and I continued to accept his recommendations. Since I was out of state he knew the area better than I. We closed quickly and effortlessly and with a small profit. I am very pleased. Thank you! — Brian Lanes

    David came recommended from the Anasazi Village where my mom owned a condo. He quickly and efficiently listed and sold the unit with no hassles within 2 weeks. I would use him again if the situation ever arose. — Charles Rader

    I am offering my highest recommendation for David Koon as a real estate representative. He was excellent in every area of my property purchase. David is professional, responsive and is a delight to work with. — Mark McDonald

    I was a News Anchor at Channel 10 for five years and knew the valley pretty well. When it came time for us to move back to Arizona we were lucky enough to be referred to David. He really clued us in to where the real values where in Scottsdale. He listened to what we wanted and never wasted time on properties that did not fit our criteria. Not only is he great before the sale but he also helped us on a few things after the sale as we now live in Pittsburgh. If you are going to buy in the Northeast valley David is your man… We think he was
    critical in helping us find a new home so we can bring business back to the Valley of the Sun. — Bob Bruce


    Agent: Cheryl Menayas

    I have worked with Cheryl several times (buying and selling) and I can confidently give her my highest recommendation. Cheryl is an intelligent, thorough and motivated agent who will work diligently to provide a pleasant and successful real estate transaction.  — R. Chang

    I was lucky enough to find Cheryl almost two years ago, no small feat being an out of town buyer. She has an incredible knowledge of the Phoenix area market, is extremely thorough in working to close the deals and is fearless in researching properties. I have recommended her to my friends and other investors. — R. Alford

    We have conducted many home inspections for Cheryl and her buyers. Cheryl is professional and always goes the extra mile. She is a pleasure to work with! — Tim O’Neall Real Estate Pro

    Cheryl Menayas was instrumental in achieving the ultimate goal….selling our house. The entire short sale process was confusing and the rules changed daily. Cheryl followed up daily between the bank and us. The process took over 7 months and if it wasn’t for Cheryl, the home would not have sold. If you want to get things done, then hire Cheryl Menayas. — The Stone Family

    Being a first time homebuyer is often an exciting life event, but it also can be intimidating and frustrating at times. When my fiancé and I were looking to purchase our first home in January 2009, we met Cheryl Menayas of Arizona Best at an open house. Boy, were we lucky to have stumbled into that home that day! Cheryl became our realtor after realizing instantaneously that she is one of the best out there. She is knowledgeable on the areas around town, listens to what her clients want, makes herself available for questions and contributes hours of her time helping find the perfect home. Her response time is impeccable—either by email or phone, she gets back to you very quickly. We searched for 6 months and were with Cheryl the entire time. She saw us through some disappointing moments but always remained optimistic that the perfect home was out there for us. My fiancé and I often commented to each other how lucky we were to have a realtor so hardworking and kind. Cheryl came prepared to every meeting with information on all the houses we were looking at and sent many helpful resources our way to better assist us with the stresses than can come with being a first time buyer. Her professionalism is greatly admired and respected, as is her expertise on the market and home buying processes. When we finally closed on a house this past July 2009, we were ecstatic to have our own home, but also sad to know we would not be seeing or talking with Cheryl on an almost every day basis as before. She is a wonderful Realtor and highly recommended. — Sara & Casey

    Cheryl was an amazing agent. I was a first time home buyer, who had very little idea how the process worked. I was buying the house from out of town, and so needed her to identify houses we could look at in a day. In the state of the economy at the time, it would have been easy to find a house that generally fit my budget, and location, but she went above and beyond to find me a great house! Not only did she make the house buying process smooth, but she also assisted me in transitioning up to the Phoenix area. If it weren’t for her, I feel like I would have been stuck with a sub-par home or at least a headache from all the paperwork. — Nick V.

    Cheryl, Thank you for your help with my company’s real estate disposition. You were vigilant, professional and courteous in managing the process. — Chris S.

    I recently sold my home thanks to the great job that Arizona Best Real Estate did for me. I worked with two concerned real estate agents, Cheryl Menayas and her partner. They took the time to find out my situation and then did all they could to see that my house sold. I appreciate the time and effort they put in to coming to my home and keeping me updated frequently as the sale progressed. I would highly recommend their company because of their outstanding customer service. — Sue P.

    Thanks Cheryl for all your hard work! — G. Middlemist

    Thank you again for all your work. I will definitely pass your information on to anyone I know who is buying a house in the area. You were a great agent when I was a buyer, you are an even better agent when I was a seller! — N. Vasilius

    My brother and I are exploring investment opportunities in Greater Phoenix area and we are not AZ state residents. We looked up a few Phoenix local Realtors, online and based on the reviews, we contacted Cheryl first. Cheryl, first asked us about what we are looking for and based on that she started sending us listings periodically. Cheryl always gives us her opinion about the properties of interest and their potentials. She is always been quick in getting more information about the property, including contacting seller’s agent, doing a site visit and sharing videos of the property. We also visited Phoenix area to get to know more, and she showed us around and prospective areas of interest. We have not purchased a property yet in Phoenix area yet, as we are more cautious because of the idea of remote investment but our interest in Phoenix area is still high. With Cheryl, we feel like we are in good hands. — Faisal & Omair


    Agent: Chris Nace

    This was my first time selling my house and I really didn’t know what might be in store for me. Chris, put my worries at easy and guided me through the whole process, it was very easy. Chris laid everything out for me and was very knowledgeable, whenever I had a question. I would recommend him to anyone. — Cameron Keegan

    This was my first time selling a house. I was worried about the whole process but then I was introduced to Chris. He took all the pressure off me with his expertise, knowledge of the industry, and his professionalism. Thank you Chris. — Brody Martin


    Agent: Kristi Newman

    The purchase of a new home and the prospect of a major relocation are major sources of stress — especially when doing the entire deal from Pakistan and on-line! Kristi made the entire process seamless and almost enjoyable (well, she was not the mortgage company– but even they were easy to deal with!). I found the property I liked on her company site and was lucky enough to connect quickly with Kristi! She was a veritable font of accurate information, insight, support and effervescent wit! What a pleasure! We made the right choice and loved the property when we eventually saw it in person (3 months after purchase). And the bonus was that my wife and I finally met Kristi in person! What a delight! And she can point you to the best croissants, specialty markets, restaurant of quality and character, in the Phoenix area. She is the best agent,  and overall resource that I have ever met!  You can’t do better than Kristi! — John Shumaker

    Relocating 2300 miles is stressful enough but then attempting to find a home in a competitive market was additionally stressful. However, we found Kristi. Not only is she extremely knowledgeable concerning the housing market,  but she actually listens to the customer!!! Imagine that!!!! Understood what we were looking for and kept to the budget!!!! We established a great level of communication without even speaking many times. Walked into a stinker house and all we had to do was look at each other and away we went and on to the next. No waste of time. I would highly recommend Kristi and know that she will do an outstanding job for you. — Jack Gustin

    My husband and I moved to the Phoenix area in 2011 and started working with Kristi after a glowing recommendation from a friend.  We found her to be dedicated, smart, funny, helpful and not afraid to speak up for the best interests of her clients.  She was open and honest and is a great mix of friend and realtor.  Would we pass on the glowing recommendation to prospective clients?  ABSOLUTELY!! — Jan Gustin

    I have been purchasing homes both for personal and investments for over 25 years.  It is rare to be able to find somebody who is willing to go the extra mile to help you get what you want. Kristi was willing to work with us in our last personal home purchase to find exactly what we wanted.  She worked with the seller’s realtor to negotiate for us and helped us get several concessions on the home.  After closing, she didn’t just go away but helped us with utility transfers, resolution of issues in the house, etc.  It was truly a delightful experience. I have purchased several investment properties since I moved to AZ and I have never worked with a more competent, diligent realtor in my career.  I provided Kristi with my criteria and she identified and filtered the properties according to that criteria.  She then walked through the homes prior to me seeing them to make sure they were something I would be interested in.  She then helped negotiate pricing, provided comps, and assisted me throughout the closing process.   She also helped find renters for me in a couple of the properties. I could go on, but suffice it to say that she has been the most effective, competent, and helpful real estate professional I have ever worked with or worked around. — Rick Harding

    I’ve worked with Kristi 3 times in the last 10 years and she is such a pleasure to do business with! I would recommend her to anyone. She has a lot of experience and an infectious positive attitude. — Josiane Childers

    Kristi is such an awesome realtor that we are in the process of looking out for our second home with Kristi as our realtor. She has such an amiable and enthusiastic nature, that house hunting has always been a fun part for us. She gives so much importance to clients’ concerns and preferences, that Kristi has never pressurized us to make any haste decisions. Kristi always gave frank opinions and made sure that we buy something that fits within our budget and has most of the features that we were looking for. We highly recommend Kristi as a realtor (and now our friend) for anyone who is looking out for getting their dream home with lots of fun during their house hunting process. And by the way, we believe that Kristi’s awesome work always attracts nice & sweet clients like us. 🙂  — Mr & Mrs Shenoy

    Kristi is totally awesome! She helped us find a house and get a contract in THREE DAYS. Her help made moving across the country way less painful. And she let us borrow a little fridge until we got one installed – a real life-saver since we had an infant! If we ever buy again, she is the only realtor we’ll use, and we would recommend her to anyone we liked. — Cort and Jen H

    Kristi Newman was the agent who helped us sell our home and purchase our dream house!  We knew before moving which neighborhood we wanted because of its proximity to the highway and to an excellent school.  The neighborhood is on the North Chandler/South Tempe border, and when homes go up for sale, there is often a bidding war because of the convenient location.  This occurred with our house, and Kristi negotiated skillfully and professionally with the selling agent.  She was able to ensure that we got the house while still remaining in our desired price range.  Her ability to communicate with the other parties was really quite impressive, and it became clear that she had a lot of experience negotiating transactions.  Two years after moving into our new house, we are still grateful to her for guiding us through the process.  We strongly recommend Kristi to help you with any of your real estate needs! — James and Anna Loewen


    Agent: Colleen Olson

    Colleen is a “relocation” expert and was referred by our realtor selling our home in CA. Colleen did not let us down in any category! Extremely professional, knowledgeable and energetic! What an agent!! We were blessed to have her help us. We appreciated the communications with Colleen and her prompt answers!

    We were referred to Colleen by a very good friend who had used Colleen in buying and selling a home. She had beautiful pictures taken of our home.  She was available to answer every question and to calm our nerves when it was needed. She helped us through the entire process and did it with great professionalism.  She was fabulous from the first day we met her until the day of closing (and even after that). — Jon and Suzanne

    Colleen followed up very well.  She sold our house quickly.  It was easy and painless. — Chad

    Colleen’s positive attitude convinced us if we did our part, she would do her part.  Our house sold in 4 days! — Tracey and Ethan

    Colleen made me feel so comfortable leaving her to work with my daughter as I am located out of state.   She eased my nerves and assured me we would find what we wanted. I was confident that she had mine and my daughter’s interest at heart and she made me feel like a friend sharing our interests and similarities with each other.  I feel like I could call her any time with a question or if my daughter needed to touch base, or if I just wanted to have a cup of coffee. — Tammy

    Colleen sold our Mesa home quickly, efficiently and at an excellent price. She worked hard to make sure the home looked terrific (she made some great suggestions about how to show the home to potential buyers). She hired an excellent photographer, utilized her contacts and marketing skills, and got a full price offer in 8 days. Her attitude is a do-whatever-it-takes to service her clients. Above and beyond service and a great realtor.  Highly recommended. — Jeanette

    Colleen came highly recommended by a business associate. She was responsive and invested time and energy with us. We appreciated how quickly she got back to us as issues or questions arose.  We liked how she weaved through the process, establishing the sales price, etc..  She instilled confidence out of the gate! — Bob and Judy

    It was easy to build a rapport with Colleen.  She is very personable and we hope to continue to see her. — Paul and Toni

    We liked Colleen’s professionalism and responsiveness.  She was always on the ball and kept us in the loop at all times.  We chose Colleen because we liked her approach and felt she could get the house sold, which she did in 1 day! — Kristen and TJ

    Colleen worked very hard to get the deal done despite limited time and a challenging market.  I really appreciated her assistance, patience and resolve throughout the process. — Chris

    I chose Colleen because she offered the best combination of professionalism, enthusiasm, marketing and personal service. I had very high expectations and for the most part she exceeded them. — Kimberly

    I would STRONGLY recommend Colleen to anyone that needs a realtor.  She did an outstanding job on the sale of two of my condos.  I live out of town and she took care of every detail including resolving some challenging glitches that developed along the way. – Steve

    Colleen was selected by my new employer’s relocation company.  Colleen had extensive knowledge about the market and the area. Even though she kept busy we always felt we had her undivided attention – even on Christmas day!  It was a wonderful experience working with Colleen. — Marcia and Sal

    Colleen was wonderful to work with.  We have high expectations and she has met them and exceeded them.  We really appreciated that she came to the final signing at the title company.  She always made us feel that our needs were important and we felt that she actually cared.

    Agent: Brian Peitz

    I am writing to inform you about the excellent realtor/relocation services extended to my wife and me earlier this month by Brian Peitz.  Brian provided us with an excellent overview of the real estate market and differences between the various communities within Phoenix.  This was very much appreciated and helpful when contemplating relocating to an unfamiliar area.  Brian is a highly personable, high energy, detail-oriented, customer service focused individual.  He listened, heard, and responded to our evolving requirements (Our housing requirements changed somewhat from when first arrived due to the additional information we gathered from the market overview Brian provided us.).  He answered our questions in an honest and straight-forward manner, which is not always the case with some realtors.  We rate Brian as the best realtor we have dealt with in the 15 homes we have purchased.  When we purchase a home in Phoenix, we will definitely use his services.  — Tom Jadlos


    Agent: Denise Pruitt

    I enjoy working with Denise.  She has been informative and very thorough for my life changing experience.  I needed her to stay on top of things as my job and transfer to Phoenix has taken over my life to some degree.  I thank her for that. — Danyell

    No small part of this deal working out was due to the intense negotiations and juggling of our real estate agent, Denise Pruitt with Arizona Best Real Estate. This is no shameless plug – this woman worked tirelessly. She acted in our best interest at every turn, taking the brunt of the unpleasantness and making it work out. She kept our buyers informed, our loan folks rolling, and Maracay involved to the very end. WE WOULD NOT BE IN THIS HOUSE WITHOUT HER. I think she is owed a bedroom, at least. Maybe a portion of the pool. — Eric & Kathryn

    I have not met Denise Pruitt in person yet, as I will be relocating from NJ and have not scheduled a trip out there yet.  Denise has kept me up to date via email on listings that might meet our requirements, and she has maintained telephone contact.  She has been very helpful in educating me on the area, particularly relating to my questions regarding houses and child services/activities. — Nick & Catherine

    After watching my sister go through buying a house here & seeing how her agent worked, I realize & appreciate even more how great it was to work with both of you.  You really went to bat for us when we needed you. Her agent did not put herself out in the same way that you two did. If it comes up again that someone I know needs to buy or sell, I will definitely recommend you. — Rich & Sue

    Thank you very much for all your help.  We could not have done anything without you.  You have been GREAT! — Jim & Lorna

    Denise was a pleasure to work with!  She was so helpful! — John & Trisha

    Just wanted to thank you for the terrific job you did for us in finding the house of our dreams.  We love it!  Your experience and optimism was greatly appreciated.  We feel you have become a friend during the process.  Please do not hesitate to use us as a great reference.  Good luck in the future and keep in touch.  Lots of love. — Tom & Lil

    We’ve always enjoyed time spent with you.  How nice to find a good Realtor, great house and a dear friend.  We are so excited about our Soleri bell.  Thank you.  One of the first things we do will be find the perfect spot for it.  We really wanted one for the house, but had not gotten there this year.  Now when we look at it and hear it, we will also think of you. — Joe & Carol

    We can’t tell you enough how much we appreciated all your assistance and hard work in getting our deal to close.  Let’s be sure to stay in touch and make plans to get together soon.  Wishing you happiness in everything you choose to do in the years to come. — Mike & Bianca

    Thank you for helping me find my beautiful home.  I knew it was hard work, but it was worth it.  Thanks again for everything and for being such a good friend. — Kristin

    Thank you for all the searching, solid referrals and trusted opinions!  We are very happy with the new house and neighborhood. — Jerry & Betty

    We are so thankful.  You are a special lady.  We can’t thank you enough.  We love the wine and corkscrew (Bruce’s eyes lit up with this new toy!) — Bruce & Darlene


    Agent: Ruth Sells

    Ruth Sells was just a pleasure to work with and the best Realtor we have had the opportunity of meeting in many years of searching. Thanks for all your help with my friends. — Bev Kentner Clausen

    Ruth has done an excellent job of acqainting/educating us with the details of the AZ market. This has been our first experience purchasing an AZ property – and we’re very fortunate to have her assist us. Bless her for her patience with us throughout the process! — Roger




    ‘I would STRONGLY recommend Colleen to anyone that needs a realtor.  She did an outstanding job on the sale of two of my condos.  I live out of town and she took care of every detail including resolving some challenging glitches that developed along the way.’ – Steve (client of Colleen Olson)
