Craig and Stacey of NextHome did a wonderful job for us when we sold our home and found a new one. They met with us to explain the process, advised us on showing the home, and were with us every step of the way from listing to close. Our home sold in only a few days thanks to them. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a Realtor! Thanks, Craig and Stacey!

Craig and Stacey are awesome. They came well prepared for our first conversation showing they had done their research and were invested in our specific home sale.

They helped us prepare for the listing and kept us informed as the process moved forward.

In the end, we received an offer above asking price the same day as our first open house. Highly recommend!

Our house sold after 4 days of going on the market!! Their process was easy and hassle free. From the moment we met with Craig we knew that we had made the right choice. They coordinated all of the work that needed to be done on my house for sale while I got to sit back and enjoy my newely built home. From advertising awareness, to his weekly updates, and responsiveness of him and his entire staff i couldn’t ask for more.

Stacey and Craig we awesome! They sold our house in 24 hours with multiple offers. We previously purchased the house with them and knew they were the only realtor we would work with. They had a very professional high tech strategy to hit the market quickly. I was pleased with the photos taken and the social media approach to selling. I could not be happier!

We interviewed Craig and his team from long distance and were impressed with how professional both he and his wife, Stacey were in discussing our listing. We decided to engage them by listing two properties for sale. At this time we are most happy with the results! Our first property sold within two weeks of the listing and everything went extremely smooth. Both Craig and Stacey were very actively involved in preparing the properties for sale and providing good solid guidance on every step of the process. They paid attention to detail and had a very good understanding of the market. We highly recommend Craig and Stacey!

Craig is knowledgeable about the market. We were able to sell our house with a reasonable and competitive price. The online marketing techniques that he applied might be a factor on how quickly we got an offer for the house. Our house was in the market for a very short period of time. He also provided guidance on how to handle a pretty significant appraisal issue and was able to resolve it in a timely manner. He was willing to jump in and helped us with the last minute housekeeping issue that we ran into before closing. One thing that we wished we could have during the contract period was more frequent updates.

Craig and Stacey were the perfect fit for us. They worked with our crazy schedules and tight timeline. They have a very up to date system for selling and buying houses with seamless transactions. Craig and Stacey were very much there for us during the many stressors of buying and selling at the same time!!!

We bought our current home with Craig's help ten years ago and because of that positive experience we wanted to work with him again when we sold our rental home! The second time around we got Craig and Stacey and what a great team they are! Stacey was exceptionally helpful with the rehab of the home that was going on the market! Because of her time and expertise we were able to maximize our return on investment! Thanks to Craig and Stacey for knowledge and expertise, we recommend and would gladly use them in the future!

Craig made the listing and selling of our house as seamless as possible. He communicated with us every step of the way. We were able to get an offer on our house which allowed us to buy our dream home. Thank you Craig!!

Craig did a great job by keeping us informed after each viewing and subsequent conversation with an interested buyer. This enabled us to determine what if any changes we though might be helpful. He also provided valuable insight on our responses to possible changes. Finally, He held the deal together through several offers and counter offers.

We found the Akers team at NextHome Valley when we were looking for a second home in Phoenix as we planned to move from Michigan to Phoenix within a few years. We wanted to get a home while the prices were still low. We accomplished that very easily through Stacey Akers, who worked mostly with buyers. When we moved to Phoenix and got new jobs, our house was too far away from where we really wanted to be. It was then we started working with Craig since he works mostly with sellers. Craig put our house on the market in an area where it was notoriously difficult to sell homes. The market was still not quite up to what it is now, so we expected it to take several months (at least) to sell the home. When Craig called within the first month to tell us we had an offer, we couldn’t believe it. He had created such a professional and detailed market plan, plus priced our house just at the right price point that it made our real estate stick out. There were many homes around us that had been for sale for a much longer time and continued to be for sale even after we had completed our sale. When the buyer turned out to be challenging, Craig went the extra mile to keep us and the buyer on track and satisfied. And when I say extra mile, I mean EXTRA mile. There were several times I wanted to give up on the buyer, but Craig worked diligently with the other agent to keep the process moving along. As it turned out, we were able to close on the sale in record time. And by the way, the closing process has been the smoothest we’ve ever experienced with any other agency. We also went back to Stacey to find the perfect house in the area we wanted and now feel this will be our forever home here in the Valley. I couldn’t have asked for a better result and I will always recommend Craig and Stacey Akers – they are the best real estate team I’ve ever come across.

Craig came to our home and gave us his proposal and we liked what he had to tell us. His wife Stacey did a wonderful job of designing and offering her vision for us to list and sell our home. Everything went great and our home sold in 24 days. I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone.

Craig was great from the start, opening up my online portal and sending me listings and updates daily. As soon as I found properties that I liked he scheduled them immediately. I am very pleased with the services they provided, the entire process was very smooth. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a new home.

Our selling experience required us to move first and then list our home. We had our home built that included modifications to the floor plan that worked for us, but actually became objections to the potential buyers that viewed our home. After a short time, it became obvious that we needed to make some changes which included moving a wall and door, and then re-tiling. Of course the exact tile was discontinued, but Craig and Stacey were able to get an exact match in a smaller size. They worked with the contractor and made a very successful modification happen. We also replaced the carpet in the office. Craig and Stacey managed to work with the contractors and make these changes quickly and at very reasonable prices. The home was re-listed and sold very quickly. The amount of work needed to get the house in the best saleable condition was tedious, but Craig and Stacey came through with flying colors. This was all done while we were living on the other side of the country. We were very satisfied and appreciative of the great service we received from Team Akers.

Most important they listen. We found both Stacey & Craigs knowledge of the areas we were interested in, for our new location, very impressive. The sale of our home had challenges that they helped us through with ease. We are grateful for their advise and kindness.

Short Sale
Craig and Stacey helped us complete a short sell our house in 2012. They were knowledgeable about the process and kept us informed about what to expect and what the next step in the process was. We appreciated all the time they put into making sure the deal went through.

Craig and Stacey are very energetic and on top of their game. We live many states away from AZ, but didn't have any problem getting several houses bought and sold in a very timely and professional way. Good people!!

Seller and Buyer
Craig and Stacey are great. We have purchased two homes with them and have referred them numerous times. I can't imagine buying or selling a home without their help. I really can't praise them enough.

Relocation Buyer
After relocating from the East coast to Phoenix AZ we were in great need of a real estate professional to help us navigate the local market. We initially came in contact with Craig Akers purely by chance as he was the listing broker of a property we decided to view.

After explaining our needs to Craig he quickly set us up with an automated MLS viewing and notification system based on the fundamental home search criteria we provided.

From that point on, and without reservation, we decided that Craig was the broker for us. He was incredibly courteous, professional, and most importantly focused on getting us the home that we wanted, versus just putting us into a property for the sake of getting a close.

He was the consummate professional from the beginning, guiding us through every step of the process, but not in an over-bearing way, but clearly as someone who had a vested interest in making our home search process as friendly and informative as possible.

In doing so, Craig was also sure to nudge us if we needed nudging in order to make sure we didn't miss opportunities as they came to market. Craig exemplified what you would expect and need in a broker; someone who listens to your needs and focuses accordingly, but also someone who will tell you when you are about to make a mistake and gets you back on-track to ensure you meet your real estage goals.

Craig was responsive to all of our requests for home showings. He showed up on-time and always worked to ensure he could accommodate our schedule 7 days a week. In short, I have recommended Craig Akers of NextHome Valleywide (formerly Omni Real Estate Solutions) to my family and friends for all of their real estate needs.

If you are looking for an experienced, honest, and straight forward real estate broker who's primary goal will be to ensure you get the property of your dreams, than please don't hesitate to contact Craig and Stacey Akers - you won't be disappointed.

Craig was easy to work with and just when we were losing hope due to the market he came through just as promised. He walked us through the negotiations and what to counter with. Our transaction all in all was a pretty smooth one.

I genuinely enjoyed working with Craig and Stacey they made my experience easy and efficient with my home purchase. Craig spent hours on my behalf dialing in my specific needs and wants in a home. I would certainly recommend and use Craig and Stacey again when I am looking for A personal residence or investment.
