“Real success is finding your lifework in the work that you LOVE.” – David McCullough

Claire is a multi-degreed business professional that has been in the Real Estate industry for 16 years. Her experience began in title and escrow in Mt. Airy Maryland. Upon starting her career as a realtor in 2005 the Real Estate market took a turn for the worst. Claire and her partner listed and sold an abundance of foreclosure homes and short sales. After the distressed market started to decrease in inventory they were presented with an opportunity to source deals to several hedge funds which then created the niche of becoming an Off Market Specialist, otherwise known to become a source to find properties to purchase by being direct to the seller for either home buyers or the large capital groups. In addition with strategic marketing and partners, she is able to assist sellers in selling their home off market as a “pocket listing”. Claire has always been passionate about assisting both buyer and sellers alike and concentrates on representing them with integrity, dedication, knowledge and is a powerhouse when negotiating the absolute best deals on their behalf. In addition to the passion of helping others, her vision for The Ackerman Team is to grow, collaborate and create a synergy unlike any other to bring the absolute best real estate experience a client could receive. Claire is also committed to educating and helping other professionals scale their teams and provide a culture that attracts dedicated and passionate agents alike while raising the bar in the Real Estate Industry. Their clients become part of the team’s growing family. #helpingonepersonatatime #passionpurposeperservance is their team’s theme for all clients.

Thank you and your Ackerman team for an amazing experience as we placed our Scottsdale home on the market for sale.

We are delighted to have chosen you to guide us through the steps of marketing and selling our beautiful home. Anyone interested in selling or buying a home should contact you for assistance as they make this major decision. Best Wishes on continued success.

"Claire and her team were amazing. My Mom ended up in a care facility and time was of the essence to sell her home as she needed the money for her care. I run two ranches and did not have the time to remodel her home to sell. Claire had it listed and we had offers in a few days. I am so impressed with her and her team. I would highly recommend them."

"Claire was so helpful. I live 3,000 miles away and wanted to purchase property in Scottsdale Arizona.. it was tricky to say the least but Claire made this so incredibly easy. She Answered questions 24/7 for me. Helped me every step of the way. I’m happy to say we bought a place !”

"Claire is the best residential realtor I have worked with. I own both residential and commercial property rentals and I have bought and sold several properties throughout the years working with several different real estate agents. Claire is by far the most knowledgeable and responsive realtor I have worked with and she drives quality results in a very timely manner. After seeing how thorough Claire was when helping me and my significant other sell her Condo earlier this year, I decided I would use Claire for my residential properties moving forward as she delivered significantly better services and results than any realtor I had worked with previously. I then worked with her again just recently to sell one of my rental homes and I was very happy I did. Situations that may be stressful or uncertain with other realtors was quickly taken care of by Claire leaving me with confidence and no stress or uncertainty through the entire process. She has sense helped my brother sell his house as well and she continues to deliver superior results and service consistently in every situation. If you are buying or selling a house, I would HIGHLY recommend Claire Ackerman!"

"Claire was absolutely amazing! She went above and beyond in helping me sell my house as well as in looking for a new home. My house was on the market for less then a day before I received a full ask offer. She walked me through every step and made the process so easy. Claire and her team are very organized and responsive. My experience with her was 10 times better and easier then previous real estate agents/companies I have worked with in the past. I will never use another agent after working with Claire. I highly recommend Claire and her team to anyone looking to sell or buy a new home!"

Claire was very patient with me as it took a long time to find something at the right price and she never gave up. She is a great negotiator and got us great deal. She is so knowledgeable of everything and made things easy for me as I had no idea of what the whole process . She even continued to help after we bought our property with getting the electricity turned on etc. I would highly recommend her to anyone selling or buying a home.

"Claire and her team helped me buy my first house and they all made the process very easy! I felt in the loop the entire time and they always answered any questions that I had. I will be using them again when the time comes and recommend them highly!"

"I was so impressed with Claire from our very first meeting...she is super professional, highly knowledgeable and proactive regarding every single detail that could possibly come up, a true advocate and helper to make everything work out perfectly for a home purchase. If there were Oscars for real estate agents I am sure Claire would be called onstage! I have worked with other agents in the past, no one comes close to Claire in expertise and dedication to ensure the best possible purchase experience. Highly recommended!"

"It goes without saying that the home buying process is crazy. The wrong Realtor can potentially make it crazier. With Claire however, thankfully that was not the case. She took over an hour of her time to introduce herself to me and give a rundown of how she operates. Not once was she distracted by her phone/another client. I felt that went a long way and thats a big reason why i chose her to be my realtor. Another example is when Claire was out of town one weekend, I was scared i would not be getting any type of followup from her. Not only was I wrong, but her colleague(Joe Laney) helped us to find our home while Claire was out of town. If your on the fence about choosing a realtor, I hopes this helps makes the case for Claire Ackerman."

Claire has been a pleasure to work with. I truly wish I had knew about her when I bought my first home. Through all of the bumps we ran into and my level of anxiety rising, she was always there, each minute, to reassure me and take over things to help settle my nerves. If I had to do this process again. I would choose Claire each time. And have already provided her information to friends that are looking for homes. Thank you Claire for everything, it has been a pleasure to work with you throughout this journey and you truly made the process easy and simple, the whole way.

Claire was so great to work with! As a first-time home buyer, I was very clueless and naïve about the entire home buying process. Claire was there with me every step of the way and helped make it easy and fun. I love my new home and have Claire to thank for it! I will be forever grateful for her help.

"Claire found the perfect piece of property, had a network of professional resources surrounding her, and completed our transaction efficiently with no problems. It was a great experience to feel comfortable stepping into a large endeavor such as buying a home. It took us less than 30 days and there was barely any stress involved. It was a pleasure working with Claire, she is a consummate professional. She even dealt with my private financing group which involved a great deal of conference calls and difficult scheduling challenges, all of which she overcame with no issues. 10/10."

"Meg is awesome! She went out of her way to make this buying experience as easy as possible. We live out of state and Meg made accommodations throughout the process. She has great communication and follow through. I would definitely recommend Meg if you are looking to buy or sell your home. You won't be disappointed!"

"Definitely went above and beyond the call of duty. When things got hairy, Meg was there to help in any way she could. Would definitely recommend her. "

"Having Meg working on my behalf was a wonderful experience. Her tireless efforts to find the ideal home for us will forever be appreciated. If you enjoy being treated like you're the only person that matters, being heard, and held in high regard, you should have Meg as your advocate in your unique home buying process. We couldn't be more thrilled with her results!"

Having had some previous knowledge in the mortgage business and understanding RE values, market swings, etc., I was taken back when the wife and I had the opportunity of meeting Claire for our 1st interview. We had already visited with 2 other RE agents and were not yet convinced they were right for us. When Claire came to our home, she had updated information of our neighborhood, market trends, recent sales, values that were moving quickly in our neighborhood, and a booklet of information we could refer to if needed. Her knowledge is a big plus, however, her explanations so we understood were even bigger. We were hooked and ready to go. Claire has all the current knowledge/training and contacts with social media, tracking, lender rates and guidelines, understanding what appraisers look for to maximize your homes value, and daily monitoring systems ensuring the best chances of selling your home quickly and at it's highest value, which she did for us .Best experience ever. We were so pleased with her results on our home, we also decided to utilize her services in selling our rental condo up in Scottsdale, AZ. Same experience, same short time frame, same maximum value. Absolute best customer service. In case you missed it, we highly recommend Claire for all your RE needs.

"WOW, best describes our real estate transaction process with Claire and her team. I contacted Claire regarding listing my home, we spoke briefly and she set an appointment to come see the home. We discussed the work that would be completed prior to listing the home. I assumed I would complete the work and she would then put the home on the market, boy was I wrong. The next day there was a for sale sign with a “Coming Soon” on top in my front yard, the marketing of the home had already begun. I had some handyman things to take care of, Claire had a gentlemen for that, “Thanks Rob!”. I needed an HVAC company, Claire had one of those too. Her resources seemed endless. Now on to the really good stuff. We listed the home and on day 9 had a full price offer. Claire and her team kept us updated throughout the transaction, letting us know when the appraisal, title report, termite reports were ordered. Keeping us up to date on the progress of the buyers loan. Were were able to sign all documents via DocuSign which made paperwork seamless and convenient. I have worked in real estate financing for many years, and I can tell you I have met very few real estate agents that stand up to Claire. If you are looking for a seasoned, knowledgeable, and HONEST real estate agent, there is no need to look further. There is a reason she is recognized as one of the TOP 40 Under 40 real estate agents in the valley! Outstanding work Claire, truly a pleasure!"

If I could give Claire 10 stars I would! I had contacted Claire even before I arrived in Arizona she was always responsive, attentive and helpful in every way. She answers your calls and texts promptly. She has gone above and beyond in my transaction. I can’t say enough good things about Claire and her team. Do not hesitate for a second to have Claire help you find the home of your dreams.

Justin was an awesome agent for us in selling our home. He displayed professionalism in all aspects of the sale. always on top of every little detail! Would most certainly recommend and use him as our agent again whether buying or selling! His assisting agent was awesome as well. Responding to all of our questions and needs. Her handling of the document process was seamless! Thanks again team!

Justin Tiffany is the man! We had bumps and hills and valleys and mountains to overcome on our journey, but NONE of it was Justin's fault. He dealt with it accordingly. He fought for us. He was always on our side. He is hands down the only realtor I will ever use again. Justin was on a journey with us for about 3 months and we finally finalized on 6/13/2018. He never got upset at me and always was willing to take my call and listen to my frustrations. My fiancée and I are super happy we had Justin our side and that he became a friend in the process
