Realtor, Off Market Specialist The Ackerman Team - North&Co Real Estate by Trade
“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 17 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.

"Claire is very professional and knowledgeable in the area of Scottsdale and Arcadia. We have purchased 2 properties from Claire and have loved every minute of our search and process. She is available all the time and can accommodate any schedule! You would be lucky to have Claire help you purchase or sell your home. I personally believe she gave us the edge that we needed to get a good deal."

Claire helped us find our dream home! She is very personable, responsive, and organized. Claire expertly guided us through the whole process and was eager to resolve any concerns we had. She stuck up for us in negotiations and touched base often to keep us informed throughout the home buying process. I would highly recommend Claire!

My experience with Claire was very good. A few of the things that stood out to me were her overall knowledge of the real estate business and her ability to recommend ideas that were outside the box. For example, I was considering a rehab at one point and she connected me with the right kind of loan personnel, as well as the contractors to do the work. This was extremely helpful in my decision making process and made me feel like the decision I ultimately made was the absolute correct one. Both her and her team kept me abreast of the progress and at no point did I feel out of the loop. I highly recommend Claire for your real estate needs.

"Claire and her team go above and beyond! This was our first time buying a home and they made it very simple for us with everything we needed to do laid out clear and concise. Claire was always available to answer all the questions we had and there were many.. and if she wasn’t available she had Keri from her team help us out and she is just as great as Claire! I have recommended her to all of our family and friends because I can trust they will receive the same care and attentiveness we received!"

Claire and team went above and beyond, were patient as we were picky buyers, and made sure that everything went smoothly! We were extremely satisfied with the knowledge, professionalism, and expertise of Claire and her team!

WOW! I truly was represented by a professional of her craft! I had tried to sell my home prior to listing with Claire and her team, but was unsuccessful. I hired Claire and she saved the day. She was able to bring offers well above the listing price. She helped walk me through the whole home sale process all while staying organized and focused on all of the details that matter when selling a home. Thank you Claire for being you! You won my repeat business! "Looks Like Barbie, Sells like Rambo"

Ms. Claire really walks the walk in this industry. Very knowledgeable about her craft as a Realtor. Claire is so connected and has the pre-marketing and off marketing strategy down like a "Pro". Claire's team, systems, and connection allowed her to pre-sell our home. We did a complete remodel added square footage. And with Claire's guidance and leadership we were able to knock this out of the park and sell before construction was done. Saved me money on the deal by keeping finishes simple and preselling. Thank you Claire for working so hard on your "Craft" to help us have a successful closing. By far....hands down best realtor I have ever used in over a hundred flips. Thank you Claire.

We began searching for homes last year while living in Europe. We understand the importance of an experienced, efficient and reliable broker. Therefore, we scoured the internet pages for local agents until we met the one that fit our needs.
We asked my sister, a realtor in the midwest for over 30 years, to make an assessment of our potential choice.
She came back to us, stating, "No problem. Stick with her. You made an excellent choice!"
My sister was correct, as were we. Claire cleared many obstacles for us, never wasted our time, advised us as necessary, and has been a true pleasure with whom to work.
With Claire, we found the perfect house that fit our needs and the entire process was both simple, and enjoyable.

"Claire made the experience of home buying manageable, convenient, and informative. We were first time home buyers and the process was less stressful and chaotic than we anticipated and certainly so compared to others' stories we have heard. Thank you Claire for you love and dedication to what you do."

"I have had 2 real estate transactions with Clair Ackerman. The first one was 10 years ago. Last month I called Clair to sell a property I obtained as successor trustee. Clair did her research and came up with a target price and stragety. After a long discussion and going over all of our options we listed the property. 24 hour later she presented me with 8 offers. Thank to her expertise, we went through each offer and the property sold above asking price. It was only 11 days from listing to closing. AMAZING Clair and her whole staff were great. I highly recommend them."

Claire Ackerman, is simply a consummate professional. Claire handled the sale of my in-laws town home from start to close of escrow. This was not an easy sale, for many reasons. Claire handled each step in the process, with grace, professionalism and dignity that only come from a true pro. She guided, us, and my in-laws through the process. Claire was always present, always on top of the critical timing that exists in all real estate transactions. At the "11th hour", a final negotiation was needed, and she handled that with precision, always protecting us, her clients. Kim and I would give her an A++++ if that is a possible grade. She will not let you down, and is in my opinion the best realtor I have worked with (btw I have been selling and buying properties for many years. Thank you Claire.

"Loved working with Nancy. We were very needy and wanted to get the buying process down quickly. I swear we looked at over 25 houses (most agents won't even take you to that many) but Nancy did. She was so sweet the whole process and definitely became a family friend. Love her!"

We recently purchased our vacation condo in Scottsdale, with Claire as our realtor, while residing in Alaska. From the onset, Claire’s Professionalism, transparency, dedication were extremely visible. The entire process was nothing short of flawless with Claire keeping our best interests at the forefront. There is absolutely nothing that she promised to do that was left undone. The communication and dedication was constant, and there was never a time that we felt out of any loop even though we were miles away. Claire Ackerman and her team sincerely made us feel like we were their most valuable clients from beginning to end. We are now proud homeowners in beautiful Scottsdale thanks to Claire!!!

Claire was dealing with a party that was out of state with little to now knowledge of the area. With lots of expectation of must haves Claire listened and found us a perfect home.
It has been a terrific experience, she worked alongside and impressed my insurance broker.
Again thank you for all your support.

Claire was personally referred to me when I was interviewing agents to sell my home. Claire really stood out because I found her to be extremely professional in her approach, very knowledgeable about the market, super responsive and a determination to do an exceptional job. Claire has a great, positive attitude and, in addition to all this....I really liked her as a person! I knew it would not be an easy deal as I was would be selling my home while living in another country so I had to trust her completely - which I did. Claire handled everything perfectly and she really went above and beyond to make sure the transaction went smoothly. My house sold within a few days of listing. I have no reservations in recommending Claire - she is a trustworthy, honorable and caring professional.

"While no move is without complication, we had an especially messy condo sale in Arizona which we were coordinating from thousands of miles away, including out of state probate court and the disposition of 20 years worth of personal property. Claire was a dream! Not only was she super responsive to our standard realtor requests, she was proactive in finding us a handyman and personally ensured the process was moving along when we weren't able to visit the condo ourselves. She set the price so perfectly we sold within days for a full price cash offer. We couldn't be happier and recommend Claire for all your real estate needs."

We were so lucky to find Claire to help us find a home for our daughter in Chandler and for ourselves in Queen Creek when we moved from California in 2016. So, of course, we called on Claire again when we needed to sell our parent’s home in Gilbert. Claire made selling this home such a seamless process. Claire is very knowledgeable, personable and super responsive. We highly recommend working with Claire whether you are buying or selling your home.

I was very happy to work with Nancy. She is sharp, prompt, knowledgeable and she got all the information I needed. It was pleasure to work with he. She is a hard working lady. I hope and wish, her the best.

This was my second experience using Meg and I wouldn't use anyone else. She made the process extremely easy and clear in what I expected to be a stressful time. Meg is very accommodating, proactive, and will go to any means to help her clients. She explains every potential option and provides great insight when needed. Highly recommend
