Stacey helped us find our first home when we moved to AZ 14 years ago, and when we were ready to move, we gave her a call.

Selling and buying simultaneously was a bit complicated, but Stacey helped us successfully navigate the process, and our move went smoothly.

With selling our house, she gave good advice on what needed to be done for repairs, staging, and pricing. We got two cash offers within the first couple days on the market, and the buyer didn't request any repairs.

With our new home purchase, Stacey helped us find what we were looking for in our price range and provided good guidance on how much we should offer based on the market. We ended up with a great home that we really like.

Stacey genuinely cares about her clients and has a wealth of experience. She knows the Valley well! If you are looking for a home, selling a home, or doing both, give her a call.

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. Stacey in particular was the Realtor we went through when we first moved to Arizona, so we have actually worked with her twice. Both times, she met us at all our appointments, went to bat for us on whatever we wanted, and put herself in our shoes. Stacey is very experienced and very good at what she does. Should we ever decide to move again, she will be the first person to know. I would highly recommend Stacey and Craig to anyone looking for a Realtor! Thanks to you both!

Director, Digital Immersion

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!

Stacey did an awesome job helping us find and purchase our new home. She is extremely knowledgeable and always responsive. As out of state buyers, we started our journey over 3 years ago. Stacey was patient and stuck with us all the way. When we finally committed to making the leap, Stacey went above and beyond to accommodate us. She spent hours on the phone with us, walking us through the buying process in Arizona, and helping us to determine a plan. She also assisted us by visiting houses and letting us view them via FaceTime before we were able to come out. When we did make a last minute trip, Stacey gave us her full attention and took us to visit a multitude of properties in person. By listening to what we said - and what we didn't say- Stacey formulated a solid understanding of what a house would need to have to become our dream home. When it came time to negotiate, Stacey was an excellent communicator and obviously skilled. We couldn’t be happier with the outcome and will always be grateful to Stacey for helping make our dream a reality. We lucked out when we found Stacey and we would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a top notch, dedicated, exceptional agent.

Quality Manager

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!

Kaylor Shemberger recommends Craig Akers

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!

The Nichols recommends Craig Akers


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.

Arthur and Nancy Engstrom recommend Craig Akers

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!

Tina Vorbeck recommends Stacey Akers

We honestly do not know what we would have done without Stacey’s guidance, experience and support during the process of buying our home. We were from out of state and had a limited opportunity to find and make an offer on a home.

We truly felt like she was watching out for us the entire time. She knows the area so well and she knew what areas provided the amenities we were looking for in a second home. I work as a Realtor in another state so I sat the bar really high and Stacey surpassed all of my expectations.

We fell in love with our condo (and the entire community). That’s when we saw Stacey’s expertise shine through. She fought for us the entire time. We purchased a property that was in the frame stage of construction and she literally carried us through the design center (I'm pretty sure we would still be there trying to pick out finishes if she hadn't been there to help us out). She made sure she was there to represent us during the inspection process since we were out of state. I don’t know what we would have done without her.

She kept in constant contact with us the entire time, even though we were in a different state. She took care of us through any issues that came up during the purchase, protected us the entire time, and she dealt with issues so we didn’t have to. She handled everything and it reduced the stress that we were under.

But the service did not end with the closing of our home. She made sure to check on our house as we were out of state. Once we closed, she provided us with a list of resources in our area that were businesses we could rely on. We have used more than one service she recommended and we have not been disappointed. Stacey is well known in the area and has a fantastic reputation.

Stacey still checks on us. It is rare to find a service level like what we were shown. I would recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in the area. The bar is instantly raised when you work with Stacey. She works tirelessly to ensure that your goal to buy or sell a home is as smooth a process as possible. If we ever sell this house or need to purchase another one, we would definitely utilize Stacey again. We have such gratitude for her helping us to realize our dream of owning a second home in Arizona and we fully realize what a major role she had in making our dream a reality.

do not put my name or photo online or elsewhere. recommends Stacey Akers

Stacey is easy to get along with, makes herself available and is great with other agents. Her ability to get along with a selling agent and her ability to negotiate on my behalf in a timely fashion led to my being able to purchase my house. She was also able to point me in a few directions after the purchase.

I could not be happier with my 1st time home buying experience. From the minute I sat down with Stacey to the minute I got my keys I always felt I had the BEST person by my side. She listened to what I wanted and we found my perfect home with-in the first week of working together. She was always available to answer all my questions and is extremely knowledgeable. I got exactly what I wanted because of her and I am so very grateful!
