Moving from city living in Chicago to the Phoenix area was a big change for me. I was only vaguely familiar with the Central Phoenix and Scottsdale neighborhoods and my fiancé (now wife) and I weren’t sure where exactly we wanted to live. Thankfully, I met Liza Snodgrass. Liza did an excellent job in probing for our likes and dislikes and was very thorough in researching what might best fit me and my family’s needs. Her strong knowledge of the area combined with her patience and persistence helped us find a home in a relatively short period of time.
Throughout the home finding/buying process, Liza’s primary concern was looking out for our best interests and making sure we were happy. Liza was always punctual and willing to do whatever was necessary to make the transition easier for me. Once we found a home that we liked, her knowledge of the market was extremely useful in negotiating the purchase price of our home. Also, Liza has a strong network of contacts, which were helpful in better understanding financing, the home inspection process, and landscaping/construction matters.
If my wife and I were going to buy a home in the Phoenix/Scottsdale area again, we would use Liza Snodgrass. Her integrity, thoughtfulness, knowledge of the market, and network of contacts make her the best at what she does.
When we found that we were moving to Phoenix from the Bay Area, we had absolutely no idea where we would live, where we would send our children to school, where the good restaurants were – we knew nothing! We received Liza’s contact information from a friend of a friend and it took one phone call to know that she was the right agent for us. Our first house-hunting trip with her was a highly-organized whirlwind. She gently steered us into the neighborhood she felt would be the best for us. She recommended schools. She targeted the homes that were in our price range and that suited our style. It became obvious to me that she wanted what was best for our family and wasn’t driven by her commission. We had worked with agents in the past who only wanted their checks and working with Liza was not like that. Over the course of several months, we looked at scores of houses with Liza. Her knowledge of the market and home pricing were invaluable to us during our search. When we finally did buy a house with her help, she was with us through the entire inspection process and closing. My husband, who normally likes to handle transactions like this, was very comfortable entrusting Liza with all the details. We have lived in Phoenix for a couple of years now and Liza contiinues to be available to us whenever we have questions about our house or local property values. We couldn’t have asked for a better agent…or friend in Arizona.
When my husband and I decided to move to Arizona, we had actually never been here. School and work opportunities opened up and we decided to make the move but had no idea where to start. We didn’t know if buying or renting was a better option, since neither of us had owned a house before, and quite frankly the whole idea of it was scary! Luckily we found Santy Partners. Our amazing agent broke everything down for us, answered every single question, addressed all doubt and was always a call or text away. We decided to buy because Santy Partners made it seem so easy! Immediately our agent, Atilio, began sending us listings of homes while we were still in Los Angeles. He also made sure we were pre-approved before even seeing any homes. Since we had never visited Phoenix, he let us know what areas would make more sense based on what we were looking for, price range, distance from school/work, etc. By the time we were able to come on a weekend to check out homes, Atilio had made appointments to see our favorite listings and even some he thought we would like. After seeing several homes, Atilio suggested we take a look at one more he had in mind. Neither my husband nor I had even seen a picture of this house, but when we arrived I had a feeling this would be it! And it was! It took us ONE DAY to find our home thanks to Atilio and Santy Partners. We decided to put an offer, with Atilio guiding us the whole way and answering any questions we had. And viola! We became homeowners! I remember the excitement when we were told our offer was accepted! As first time home owners and having heard some home-buying horror stories we didn’t know the process could be so seamless. Even after moving in to our home Atilio has been checking in on us and answering any first time home owner questions we have. We know who we are going to call when we decide to buy our next home! Thank you so much Santy Partners!
Gayann , you are the best and most trustworthy realtor I’ve ever met. I’m so happy I chose you to handle this. Any other person would have put in that offer last night and wouldn’t have even blinked. Thank you for being my friend and someone I can trust. My Dad and I will use you for all our real estate transactions forever. Thank you
