Imagine a realtor that has an in-depth knowledge of the past and current local real estate market, has developed a strong network with area business owners and service providers, knows the local culture, and understands the complex process to purchase a property - including the purchase contract, negotiations, property inspection, and escrow. Combine that rare combination of knowledge with a friendly personality and sincere desire to help buyers and sellers not only as clients but, more important, as a friend and you would have the good fortune to meet Jon Bright, an experienced realtor that knows Payson and the surrounding Rim country. During visits to Payson in late 2012, Jon quickly assessed my criteria for moving to a new house and patiently spent several days describing local cultural norms while showing me properties on the market. He took time to describe features of properties that I was not familiar with or may have overlooked. Jon not only shepherded me to a great new home, but helped me though the arduous closing process. On many occasions, his insight and honest advice was invaluable help. I seldom write reviews, but highly recommend Jon for his friendship. knowledge, and integrity if you need help relocating or finding a vacation or investment property in Payson and the surrounding area.

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $150K in Payson, AZ.
He was a friend first and I would listen to him share work experiences and about people he worked for and my husband and I decided that when we would put our homes on the market we would use Jon as our realtor. We had seen his care for people and his integrity. We also go to church with him and know that he stands by what he says and does. He sold our primary home in October of 2012 and now our second home is in escrow so we would definitely recommend Jon highly.
Jon Bright assisted us in finding property around Payson, AZ. He was thorough, had tremendous knowledge about the area, and showed us about 15 houses in 2 days-one of which we bought. He understood our needs and has a lot of knowledge about local people and services. He worked hard to get us the best deal possible and was present during inspections in our absence. The first time we met Jon he was easy to talk with and it seemed like we had known him for a long time. I would highly recommend Jon to anyone to find property in the Payson area. We bought our house in Strawberry 17 miles north of Payson so he covers a wide area.
Bought a Mobile / Manufactured home in 2012 in Payson, AZ.
I met Jon Bright on line while I was still living in another state. I emailed him regarding what type of property I was looking for, the price range, and when I would be in Payson, AZ. He "listened" carefully, and upon my arrival in Payson he had several properties for me to look at. All were in my price range, and most had everything I was looking for. Amazing. I entered escrow and purchased a house of my dreams within 2 months of arriving in Payson. This was mostly because Jon negotiated several obstacles with ease. His pleasant personality, knowledgeable mind and professional attitude assisted the purchasing experience. Above and beyond that Jon is a caring and compassionate person who loves to help people. He immediately became more than my realtor, but my first friend in Payson and remains so. Thank you Jon. I recommend him to everyone who is looking for a qualified, caring realtor without any hesitation!
When it came time to buy a second home, Jon worked with me for over six years and kept in touch regularly. We had a specific target and goal in mind when it came to this second home and he was very patient over the years....and when the parameters were finally met, he immediately got in contact with me. Within two months, we were the proud owner of the second home that matched our needs perfectly! We couldn't be more happy.
Jon also helped us manage the ensuing paper trail perfectly and was overly communicative when it came to our questions concerning the appraisal process, the various inspections, etc. He made it really easy and simple to be a new owner!
I would recommend Jon to anyone. You couldn't ask for a more caring Agent!
