Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $175K in Encanto, Phoenix, AZ.

Gene and Ron are *by far* the best realtors I have ever worked with (they helped me buy my fifth house). Their passion for historic homes means that they know what to look for in neighborhoods and houses. They are also fantastic listeners, and work ed hard to find just the right home for us.

Thanks for the kind words Mary. Knowing you love the place now that you've been there a while makes my heart glad. I hear the man who bought your last home has added a pool. Give Bill my best.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $125K in Paradise Valley, Phoenix, AZ.

The Urban Team is a pleasure to work with, and are very professional. They are obviously truly "connected" in the Phoenix real estate market, and are highly respected by their peers. Their responses to our many questions were always prompt and accurate. We would certainly ask for their help in the future if we need assistance with Phoenix real-estate.

Bought a home in 2012.

I was truly impressed by Gene and his skills in helping us find a home. He met with us on a weekend and was available after our work hours. This was our first home my partner and I had bought. Our budget was small but Gene was willing to work with us. Every offer we submitted Gene went over every page with us and made sure we understood what each document meant and said. Gene was always willing to go the extra mile. What really stood out was when he showed up to our title signing. He made sure we understood what we were signing and as it turned out the title company had made some horrible mistakes, Gene helped us get the paperwork done correctly immediately. Had he not been there it would have been a mess to do undo. So, to actually have someone that you not only feel is on your side, not just for commission, and is ready to go the extra mile please consider The Urban Team.

Hi G & D... I vividly remember going over the contract with you and how Gil read every line and the brilliant questions each of you would ask. Can't wait to help you find your next home too. Much love to you both... Gene

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $250K in Paradise Valley, Phoenix, AZ.

Contacted The Urban Team when almost ready to list our home to see if there was anything we had missed in getting home ready for showing. Used minimalist staging and no clutter and personal items.

Gene Urban took photos and I was very impressed with the online slide show and also print flyer. Awesome. Had multiple offers from first day's listing and selected an offer.

Used docusign to sign docs from out of town. Very nice and efficient service.

They kept us up to date as to how the inspection and appraisal processes were progressing. Scheduled closing appointment with title company for us as well.

In addition, we purchased this particular home through The Urban Team 9 years ago and were so happy with out experience then, that we wanted them to represent us with this current sale.

I would definitely recommend the Urban Team to potential buyers or sellers

Sold a Single Family home in 2003 for approximately $400K in Desert View, Cave Creek, AZ.

We have worked with Ron & Gene for many years. They are the best, most honest, hard working, down to earth Realtor's I know. Once you work with them once, you know that they are on your side and are always looking out for your best interest.. I would HIGHLY recomend anyone give them a try. You won't be sorry! Unfortunatly.. they did too good of a job, I'm never moving.. I still love my home after almost 10 years. So, now I just refer all my friends and family to them!

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $375K in Central City, Phoenix, AZ.

Gene and Ron were amazing to work with. Their knowledge of historic houses, downtown neighborhoods, and the current market, along with their patience and responsiveness to our own house requirements made us understand just how much help a realtor can give when buying a house. It was an absolute pleasure working with them.

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $450K in Camelback East, Phoenix, AZ.

Gene and Ron helped me buy my first home (June 2012). They were incredibly professional, *highly* knowlegable, very not-pushy, very helpful, and very friendly as well. Three thumbs up and six stars (out of five) - they made buying my first home a very low-stress experience, and I ended up with a house that I am EXTREMELY happy with!

Sold a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $125K in Encanto, Phoenix, AZ.

They were very detailed and thorough. They gave honest opinions about properties to ensure that I was purchasing a reliable home rather than making an easy sale. They were stern when it came to having repairs made by licensed contractors before papers were signed and even went to the property on a regular basis to make sure no shortcuts were beng taken.

Drove past the place a couple days ago but your car wasn't out front. Hope you are doing great. I hear your schedule is crazy. Give our best to your family too. Gene & Ron Urban

Bought a home in 2011.

I purchased in a downtown historic district and Gene Urban as a 'buyer agent' really kept me from overpaying.

If Gene wasn't available, his brother stepped in. Great guys.

I appreciated their expertise.
