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.

Dan and Shelly S

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.

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.

Brian and Donna

"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

"Stacy is amazing!

She really gets to know you and what you want in a home, and she will find it for you! She was so knowledgeable, and patient with me,for almost 2 years before I found a place to call home! I highly recommend Stacy!!"

Molly Pilcher

"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."

“If you’re looking for a realtor to sell your house and is; very knowledgeable about the Phoenix market, is professional and well organized, is personable, has excellent marketing tools, is dedicated and has a lot of honest integrity, Kevin Stark will get your house sold with excellent results!

If you’re looking to buy or rent a home, Kevin has excellent listening skills (he only shows you quality properties that meet your parameters), is always punctual (always arrives 2­3 minutes before appointment time) and does an excellent job negotiating on your behalf. In either scenario, Kevin does a superlative job of following­up and keeps all the processes of buying and selling real estate flowing smoothly. Working with Kevin really put me at ease. You will be pleased with the services and results Kevin provides to his clients."

Jan Lynch

Kevin really listens.

My daughter found him by calling from a sign she drove by.We ended up putting in offers on about 3 houses and lost out to cash buyers every time. Kevin must have shown us over 20 homes. We were very picky. We wanted a duplex or house/guesthouse scenario so I could live in part and my daughter could live in part. It took about 10 months but Kevin was always looking and always upbeat in order to keep me looking. In the end we ended up with the best of the lot! Great work Kevin!

Marilyn Riggs

Kevin went well above our expectations as a realtor.

He was well versed in all aspects of the real estate process and helped us through each step, even provided us with an outstanding mortgage broker. Kevin has the uncanny quality to make you feel like you're the only client he is working with; which is certainly not the case. He is able to achieve this feeling by quick responses via phone or email, the time he puts forth for questions and house showings, his patience throughout the process, and his outstanding attitude. We are unable to fully put into words our experience with Kevin, but to put it simply we had a great time purchasing our home with him and we love the home we have. I would not hesitate to recommend Kevin as a realtor and would use him again.

JR & Mindy Phillips

My husband and I owe Kevin many thanks.

He helped us through a short sale which included a long and complicated water well situation. He never gave up and went above and beyond to resolve the issue and after many months got us into our dream home. We would highly recommend him as a realtor, especially in short sales. Many realtors would probably have given up but he stayed with us and that is what we will always appreciate. He has become our friend since then and is the first person we refer for any real estate needs. Thanks Kevin.

Marc & Anna Corkins

There are soooo many great things to say about Kevin.

Finding a great realtor can be tough--only a small percentage of the total population is good at what they do. Kevin is one of those few. He is truly a diamond in the rough. He recently sold my in-laws' condo and we were all so impressed with the entire process working with him. He manages to balance his personality & friendliness with professionalism and an element of realism. I HIGHLY recommend using Kevin as your realtor. You will NOT be disappointed. He is different from the rest!!!!--


My wife and I recently hired Kevin Stark as our realtor to sell our home.

Kevin was very professional and thorough. He walked us through all the paperwork and answered all our questions and concerns we had along the way to the sale of our home. Kevin did all this and more as he conveyed his experience through his positive approach to every facet that involved us and our home. I cannot express how impressed we were with Kevin when we realized he actaully was listening to the needs of our family. He made the entire process effortless for us and really made it enjoyable to sell our home. His methodology is genius! His upbeat personality only makes you want to be in a good mood when you are around him. To say we are pleased would be severe understatement, we were truly blessed to have Kevin Stark as our realtor. Our house sold in 2 weeks of being on the market. We cannot ask for anything more and we would recommend Kevin Stark to everyone, as his personal touch made our lives so much easier. Thank you Kevin for all your hard work in accomplishing the goal of selling our home.


Steffani is an amazing agent.

Her knowledge of the east valley and her work ethic are top notch. I would highly recommend her selling or helping you find a new home.

Marty B

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!!!

Dustin Sumner will work hard to bring personal and professional service to find you the right home.

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

Connie B

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!

John Gonzales has been a great resource with my home.

His professionalism, expertise and his relationships in the industry give me peace of mind that I am always getting the highest quality professionals, service, and products for whatever I need as I remodel and update the house. He is very personable and responsive and takes the extra time to introduce me personally before I work with someone. And his reputation in the industry means I get the best treatment possible. John has also helped some of my friends ready their homes for the market and their experiences have been nothing but positive as well.


They are a diverse group that was able to answer any question I had & were able to get back to me very quickly.

Michelle Asterino is such a fantastic real estate agent.

Her professionalism and caring heart makes the home buying process painless and enjoyable. I have worked with many agents over the years and Michelle is by far the very best in the Phoenix area...Thank you Michelle for all you do!!

Jacque O

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

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

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

Manuela M

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! :)

Peter F

I was referred to Joe Pascale by a family member that he helped.

He made the complicated home buying process a total breeze! I'd definitely recommend Joe to all of my friends & family.

The experience & personality of this team will leave you with nothing but satisfaction!
