We wanted a retirement home in Arizona, but had no idea where. Justin showed us multiple locations from Phoenix suburbs to Tucson. When we decided to build a new home Justin was exceptionally helpful throughout the process - we lived in Nebraska, so Justin went to home inspections and even picked out our granite slabs. Justin sent us pictures of the home in various stages of the building process. Justin met us at our walk thru and attended our closing with us. We can't say enough good things about how Justin made this whole process so enjoyable for us. He was there for us every step of the way. Every phone call, email, text and phone call was responded to very timely and professionally. We will forever be grateful to Justin for helping us select what we think is the perfect retirement home for us.
With Marty I never felt like he pushed me to change my expectations or price range. He was always so fast to respond and really listened to what I wanted and needed in my new home. The best part of having Marty as my realtor is he always had a positive attitude and never gave up on what I wanted even when I sometimes lost hope. Thanks to him I now have a beautiful new home that I wouldn't have ever even imagined I would own.
The following comments are completely unsolicited and are mine alone. My first meeting with Stacia Meeker came about through a referral from friends with whom we were visiting in the Goodyear Estrella area in AZ. At my first meeting with Stacia and looking at some properties in the area, I decided I liked her approach and would use her services as a buyer’s agent. I returned a month later ready to look seriously and buy. At the time I arrived back in Estrella, I had developed an Excel spreadsheet detailing 50+ properties selected from the daily property searches I received from Stacia and Gilbert’s office. Both Stacia and Gilbert invested nearly a full week of their time with me and during that week I was treated with consideration, respect, and was NEVER PUSHED OR PRESSURED to buy anything….. period. We did look at nearly all the 50+ homes on my spreadsheet and by week’s end, aided by some hardball negotiating with a seller on my behalf by Stacia, I had an acceptance offer on the property that I wanted in hand. (Note that I’m currently using both Stacia’s and Gilbert’s extensive contacts in the area to make the place we bought extra special for us. ?) Stacia Meeker is a very outgoing high energy person. She has a great depth of knowledge on the properties in the area, and importantly has the ability to translate this knowledge into accurate and honest assessments of the local properties for sale. She also has great connections (for example she connected me with a mortgage broker who was able to prequalify me quickly and helped to expedite the entire process). She as I mentioned earlier, is not afraid to play hardball and knows exactly when to play that hand. Gilbert Jaramillo, Stacia’s partner at this RE/MAX office, has an encyclopedic knowledge of the regional real estate and worked with us seamlessly as Stacia’s teammate in our buying efforts. Gilbert has an easy going affable nature coupled with an uncanny ability to quietly and effectively evaluate subtleties his clients express while looking at houses. He uses his insights to really help his client find the property that will genuinely appeal to him. A valuable skill, it worked really well for me and my wife. The combination of both Stacia’s and Gilbert’s talents is a huge asset to their company and made our new house happen for my wife and I. Throughout the house buying process, I received exceptional personal service with speedy responses to any and all inquiries from either Stacia or Gilbert by phone, text, or email. Our buying experience brought home to me how nice it is to work with people who care about you and truly want you to be satisfied. Thank you to you both!
I can't wait to meet more of the team!
Justin Schlegel assisted my wife and I in purchasing our first home. I was wrought with stress over the process and he masterfully and perfectly answered all of my questions. He knew exactly what we were and weren’t looking for, sometimes even before we knew. His communications with us were always prompt, professional and informative. I have never seen a professional go the extra mile the way he does. I will regularly be referring anyone I know in the or abour to enter the housing market to give Justin a call. He helped make a stressful transaction a breeze and made our real estate dream a reality.
Neal Brown is a man of his word. He told us in the very beginning that he would not leave us until we find a home. He did just that. He stayed our realtor until we found a home that is great. The Lord Blessed us to find this home. Through Mr. Neal Brown expertise we were able to close before Christmas. I want to clarify something that the survey would not let me. Most of the lenders we found on our own before we engaged Mr. Neal Brown services. So he did not have anything to do with them giving up on us and other things that were not right. I would recommend Mr. Neal Brown and Remax for finding a home.
She knew the phoenix area well. A " no pressure", and we would look at as many houses as it took to "find the one", was Jamie's approach. We thought we would drive Jamie crazy with our questions, and days of showing us available listings. The house we finally made an offer on was perfect. Jamie got it under contract for us immediately at a NICE discount and a long list of repairs that she insisted the seller take care of. Jamie worked extremely well with the other agent and home inspector. Jamie Is all about follow up. She's super knowledgeable about real estate and the contract process. We were lucky to find Jamie, and she has the biggest heart of anybody you'll ever meet. Scott and Linda H.
