Kimberly Cartwright recommends Tamara Rizzi

Tammy is an amazing realtor. We were first time home buyers and she explained every step of the process clearly (and didn't mind when she needed to explain it more than once). She went above and beyond to work with our schedules, listened carefully to what we wanted in a home, and was so responsive. Even our kids loved working with her! Tammy helped get us into the perfect house and we will recommend her to everyone!

Jessica Peters recommends Lisa Gifford

Having used her services in both buying and selling a home I can say that Lisa Gifford is a professional realtor in every sense of the word. The dedication to her clients starts from the first conversation had about what our needs were. From finding a potential home, to keeping the transaction on schedule, Lisa is on top of it and there to help with whatever may arise. Having someone so knowledgeable on your side is an asset I would recommend to everyone.

Jacqueline and John M recommend Lisa Gifford

I remember seeing Lisa Gifford’s real estate signs go up in my neighborhood often as “Coming Soon”. It seemed as quickly as those signs went up there was a “Sold” sign to follow in what seemed like record speed. When it was time to sell our house, I called Lisa Gifford.

Lisa showed up at our door well prepared. She had already done a well-planned market analysis and was ready to listen to our needs and expectations. We went with Lisa that very day. When our house was finally on the market, we had multiple offers above list price. Lisa offered invaluable advice on how to review those offers and make the best decision.

Several years later we called on Lisa again to help sell an investment property. Once again, she went above and beyond. This time we were out of state. Lisa was exceptional when it came to managing this transaction–she even staged our home while we were out of town. The house sold over the weekend, once again with multiple offers coming in above list price.

What sets Lisa apart from other realtors we have worked with is her commitment to listening actively to the needs and expectations of her individual clients and then facilitating a clear road map to achieve goals. She does this full-time so it’s not a hobby for her. She stays informed on the markets and conveys information in layman’s terms. Lisa is not only our chosen realtor, she has become a trusted friend to our family. When it comes to real estate needs we highly recommend Lisa Gifford.

Joey Richardson recommends Lisa Gifford

Executive Director

Lisa Gifford, real estate guru extraordinaire, is one of the most knowledgeable, market-savvy, and innovative agents my husband Neil and I have ever worked with. Her ability to actively listen to our home "type" needs and her thoroughness to deliver results are unparalleled. Lisa selectively chose several existing homes for us to consider for the build out- all of which would have been great fits. She found the perfect home where we could turn the downstairs living room, bath & bedroom into a mother-in-law suite which we needed for Neil's mom. The home she found us had the perfect layout, an amazing yard, AND was in a central location for our commute. Not only is it a dream house, but one we've loved, entertained in, created cherished family traditions, and cared for my mother-in-law.

We've worked with Lisa for the last ten years on two home purchases and one sale. The first with the challenge of housing our family of four boys in a school boundary neighborhood. Given the seller's market, her responsiveness to show homes coming onto the market, but ones coming soon onto the market resulted in us finding a home within three weeks. This first home was the perfect cal-de-sac neighborhood to raise our boys. And when we had to sell it, she did so in 1 1/2 weeks for 18% over our asking price.

In summary, her industry knowledge astounds me- whether it's what to negotiate, home warranty options, how to price compared to market value, or referrals for repair services, she is resourceful, competent, and always direct. In today's market, responsiveness, market/area knowledge, support services, and competence to purchase the best value or sell for top dollar- you need a trustworthy agent who will partner with you. Lisa Gifford is warm, makes the process fun, and truly takes serving, and delivering results to the next level.

Delilah B. recommends Lisa Blair


Ms. Lisa is outstanding. My husband and I recent purchased property through Lisa Blair. We have never made a property purchase before and had tons of questions throughout the process. Lisa was very kind and available anytime we had questions/concerns with great timely responses. She was the realtor assigned by seller but advocated for both parties (buyer and seller) to make sure everyone felt taken care of. My husband and I highly recommend Lisa Blair if you are looking for a great and smooth experience while purchasing your first or next home/property. Thank you again, Lisa! We appreciate the positive experience!

Joy Johnston recommends Lisa Blair

I highly recommend Lisa Blair for any of your Real estate needs. She went above and beyond as my agent, getting my property sold. The location of the property is in a remote community, and as I live in a different state, Lisa did ALL of the hiring for the work and inspections required to get my property sold, keeping me up date at every job.
I would have never been able to sell my property without her!
I am truly blessed and grateful to Lisa.

Lida & Kyle Buckner recommend Kaye Hert

What a pleasure it has been working with kaye o find out perfect home. A friend introduced to us Kaye in 2019. We had a three year timeline to make the big move from Issaquah Washington to Scottsdale. During that time Kaye, every time were visited Kaye was teaching us the area and learning our tasted by touring homes. Kaye was so patient and such a good listener. She would pivot as we all learned together the ideal boxes we wanted to check. Finally, a few weeks ago a house hit the market that marked every box and more, and the timing was perfect. Kaye allowed us to trust the process and have faith. She is also an excellant resource as a new home owner to the area, and fantastic person! Thank you Kaye!

Michelle Weber recommends Sarah Wilson

I strongly recommend Sarah Wilson and her exceptional interior design services. From the moment I laid eyes on her own home, I was captivated by her minimal contemporary aesthetic, meticulous attention to detail, and ability to create breathtaking spaces.
When Sarah offered her services, I immediately seized the opportunity to work with her. She provided design concepts for my primary bath remodel, primary bedroom, office, and even revamped the look of my living room fireplace. Her keen eye for unique elements, such as a concrete desk and leather bedside tables, are elements I would never have considered alone. These additions brought a remarkable and dramatic transformation to the spaces.
Sarah's design for my primary bath, in particular, exceeded all my expectations. It captures the essence of a spa-like retreat, and I eagerly anticipate the final results from a contractor.
Working with Sarah was an absolute breeze. She presented her ideas, understood my preferences, and incorporated my feedback into each project. Her ability to listen and adapt ensured that each design was tailored to my needs and desires.
Not only is Sarah a talented and creative designer, but she is also a joy to collaborate with. Her friendly and inspiring personality made every interaction enjoyable. Furthermore, she has a remarkable knack for problem-solving, effortlessly overcoming challenges during the design process.
I wholeheartedly endorse Sarah Wilson for her interior design services. Her unique style, attention to detail, and ability to transform spaces are truly remarkable. Whether you want to revamp a single room or embark on a complete home makeover, Sarah's expertise and delightful demeanor will undoubtedly exceed your expectations.

Tony and Kay Marletto recommend Ariana Arroyo


Ariana Arroyo is highly recommended by us. We were long distance buyers and did not have a lot of time in which to look. We knew exactly what we wanted. She was able in just 2 days to find us something that would work for us. She then went above and beyond during and right after the sale to help us in so many ways as we were not going to be present for closing. She has a vast knowledge of the area, many contacts and made going through the paperwork part of the sale very bearable. Ariana is personable, friendly and makes you feel very comfortable through the process of buying. She continues to help even after the sale. Very impressive.
