Platinum Living Realty Testimonials

Mark has been of invaluable assistance in helping find investment properties not only in the Phoenix area, but around the country.

He is a great team player with an impressive back ground. His in-depth knowledge of both the wholesale and retail aspects of the real estate field enable him to stand head and shoulders above his peers. He is an excellent communicator who has the ability to drill down to the heart of the matter. I freely recommend Mark to anyone who has an issue to deal with real estate, whether it be research, buying, selling or listing.

I've worked with Kasey Pastor Fleming for a couple of years now and she is amazing at what she does!

Not only is she extremely knowledgeable about real estate, Kasey always makes you feel like you are her #1 priority. She will take the time to answer any and all questions, walk you thru the process step by step and in the end you know are in great hands. By working with Kasey, I know it will always be handled with trust, confidence and respect!

Joe Pascale is probably the most top notch realtor I know in the valley.

Not only does he work great with buyers 'He knows all the best practices to use when finding that perfect house for the best price' for his customers, he's the best agent to use when selling a home as well. I find he is a pro when it comes to his knowledge and experience in this type of market, but I really value the fact that he is easy to work with, and I can get ahold of him fast. I actually tell people that I have a 'Friend in the real estate business', because I do! :)

Thank you for the tremendous effort you demonstrated during our recent home purchase.

We were most impressed by your exuberance and perception of the type of house for which we were looking. In other words, we never wasted any time! In the future, I would not hesitate to refer other potential home buyers to you.

Mark and his team at The Van Dyke Group did an excellent job recently selling our Home in Scottsdale, AZ.

From start to finish Mark was extremely professional, responsive and helpful in navigating us through the home selling process. It was very beneficial having the detailed analysis of the market, pre-sale inspection and video presentation of the home for sale to help us present the property well in the market. I would definitely recommend Mark Van Dyke as he and his team took such excellent care of us.

Mike & Shelly - Scottsdale, AZ

I have done a couple of deals with The Van Dyke Group.

Mark is very professional and I would highly recommend Mark's services at The Van Dyke Group!

Dustin has great people skills and will listen to your needs which is important to buying or selling any home.

Connie B

"As many time visitors to Arizona, my wife and I had fallen under the Scottsdale ‘spell’ and were determined that we would eventually own a home here so that in retirement we could escape the cold dark winters at home and embrace the outdoor Scottsdale lifestyle.

It all sounds simple enough but without Stacy to guide and help us through the process I doubt we would have been able to succeed in owning our beautiful Grayhawk home…and becoming true ‘Zonies’. Stacy has a great depth of knowledge & experience of the local real estate market and we were hugely reassured being able to count on that patient and friendly expertise to get the home that we wanted. We would have no hesitation in recommending Stacy as a ‘go to gal’ for anyone looking to purchase a property in this fabulous part of the States."

Paul Bandall

THANK YOU Angie for not only making selling our home super easy, but also providing a top notch buying experience!

I don’t usually write reviews on social media, but after working with Angie and experiencing first-hand her outstanding level of service, professionalism and patience, I wholeheartedly recommend Angie’s realtor services to everyone. Angie is one of the good ones...better yet, she’s truely exceptional.

Anson and Cylie

I can't thank you enough for the great way you handled my questions and the sale of my home.

Rhonda Waldersen is the most effective and genuine realtor I have ever worked with. She was always upbeat and genuinely interested in my views on presenting my home for sale. I've had experiences with realtors previously and she is, by far, the most efficient and easiest to work with. I highly recommend her.

Joan E.

Wanted to let you know we're enjoying our new home.

Thanks for all the work you did for us. You are absolutely the best realtor we've ever had. Every opportunity we have we will refer your name.

Walker B. - DC Ranch, AZ

I worked with agent Stacie Granger and was very impressed with her professionalism.

I was in the market to find a good investment property in the Central Phoenix and Arcadia area. Little did I know this was one of her specialties. Her knowledge of off-market properties in such a competitive area was remarkable. Not only was I able to find a great property but I was able to secure it way under market value. Kudos to her and I will definitely be using her services again! ONE HAPPY INVESTOR!!!

Ava H

Astounding company!

Our realtor, Dave Westbrook, did an amazing job! He was attentive, responsive, and completely professional. His knowledge of the market and professional advise made or experience seamless. He was able to sell our home in under a week for more than we expected. I cannot say enough about the service he provided and how easy he made it to sell our home. I would highly recommend Dave and Urban Luxe Partners in Scottsdale.

Brienne M

We loved working with Michelle Asterino.

She's the absolute best agent. Not only is she professional & knowledgeable she is warm and genuinely cares about her clients.

Shannon K

"After holidaying in Arizona for six successive years, my family and I finally decided to realize the dream of owning a home in Scottsdale.

As a UK citizen, I knew this undertaking would not be small given the 5000 miles that separated us from the house buying process in the USA . I needed an exceptionally trustworthy and knowledgeable agent to help me find the perfect house, in the perfect location. An exceptional individual who, above all else, would look after my emotional and financial interests in acquiring a property. Through sheer good fortune we found Stacy Klein whose commitment, energy and outstanding respect for her client’s needs ensured she found the perfect home in the perfect area within the bounds of my 12 hour visit from the UK. From there on it was just plain sailing. Stacy’s timely and impressive communication kept me well informed throughout the process (despite the 8 hour time difference). She ensured that none of our interests were ever compromised and became a truly formidable agent to have on our side. With a keen eye for solutions, Stacy demonstrated an incredible knack for anticipating potential issues and resolving them with our needs in mind. By the time she called, it was just simply a problem solved! It all meant a good night’s sleep each night. It should have been a daunting experience, but we had a dream agent for a dream house. Thank you Stacy."

I highly recommend Bernadette.

She has helped me with numerous transactions and I have referred friends and family to her. When I describe Bernie to people I let them know that she will not leave a stone unturned and they will not be disappointed. She is a go-getter and will make things happen in a timely manner.

Alice Cornado

Working with Mark Van Dyke and The Van Dyke Group at Platinum Living Realty was a stress-free and highly enjoyable experience.

I worked with other REALTORS in the past that never really listened to my needs. They went out of their way to take all of my requests and researched the whole market for just the right home for me. I Highly recommend Mark Van Dyke and Van Dyke Real Estate. My Home Buying experience was first rate and I will continue to refer all of my friends and family to them! Thanks Mark!

Thomas L. - Cave Creek, AZ

Bernadette has been very helpful and responsive in regards to all aspects of my search for my home in Arizona.

The fast-paced market in this area made it very difficult to find the perfect home quickly. I could not have done it without her! I strongly recommend working with Bernadette to find your perfect home!

Dana McVay

It was a joy to work with Angie!

  She started by helping us, as out-of-State buyers, focus and narrow our search with direct and helpful feedback.  Our scouting trips to Arizona were well organized and efficient.  Once we selected a residence, she diligently attended to all matters from inspections to mortgage and closing documents.  Her local connections and continuous presence were a great comfort to us as distant buyers.  I’d recommend Angie to anyone! ~MARK AND JOYCE

Mark and Joyce

My husband and I moved to Phoenix in 2013, and a friend suggested Angie Walls as our realtor.

Immediately we hit it off; Angie is respectful, patient (we saw about 40 houses!), and has a good sense of humor. My husband and I were only somewhat on the same page of wish list items and where we were willing to compromise, so it was going to be difficult to please us both.   The goal was to buy a home we could live in for 5 years and then find our forever home. Angie was able to take that information and show us only houses that best fitted our needs, style and strategy. I feel we didn’t waste time on seeing any homes that would not have been considered. Angie made sure the house we finally bought would maintain value and possibly make us a profit when we sold.  Well 3 years later Angie listed our house, it sold in a couple of weeks and the value did go up. So it was great advice and a good investment.   Then the house hunting began again. At this point we could not find our forever home so we were in the same scenario of a “temporary” home. Angie came through again; she paid attention to what was important to us. All the homes we saw were equally in the running until she advised on the best purchase strategy. We believe the home we bought is a sound investment and should turn a profit when we sell in a couple of years. Angie is a real delight to work with, very open and honest, and has become a true friend over time.  I would recommend her to anyone who’s looking to work with the best.

Highly likely to recommend Helped me rent a Single Family home in Peoria, AZ.

Pete was very helpful when our rental got foreclosed on and we were evicted. She took the time to explain our rights as tenants as well as helped us find a place on very short notice. She would answer every phone call and text in a timely manner even late after hours. She offered us many options.

"Having Mark handle the sale of my house and getting me into the one I wanted was the best decision I ever made.

Saved me a bundle. He listened and understand what my needs were, which expedited the whole process. Professional, fast and courteous. What more could one want?"

I have known Mark and Grant for several years and they have always lead the field with Integrity, timely response to their customers needs and honesty! I would recommend The Van Dyke Group proudly to all of my family and business networks!

Steve W. - Dallas, TX

Although I have yet to purchase a home with Dave Westbrook's assistance, he has been helpful to many friends.

I have asked his opinion on other matters related to remodeling and referrals. He is always available and if he is not, he returns my calls or emails in a timely fashion. His can do attitude and the FACT that he is "never too busy" speaks volumes in a world where customer service and availability of a "live" contact are almost nonexistent. He is definitely an asset to your business

My experience with Bernadette and her team was outstanding.

For being a first time home buyer my wife and and I were a little unsure on how the purchasing process works. Bernadette educated us and dedicated hours and hours to guarantee we were placed in the house that was fit for us. Bernadette was very communicative and always on time there was never a time we where not up to date on the buying process. I would highly recommend her to represent anybody looking to purchase or sell a home. No doubt the BEST Realtor in AZ
