Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $550K in Tempe, AZ.
Primary point of contact: Annette Holmes

We worked with Annette Holmes from The Rachael Richards Group for about 9 months, signing a lease on a rental home in the middle of the process and ultimately buying a single family home.

Annette's biggest strengths for us were her responsiveness and experience. She was always available and responded quickly which was important as we were forced to close in under 30 days. Her experience as a buyer's agent shone as we had to deal with non-standard contract addendums and atypical demands from the seller (a national bank). When we were forced by our lender to meet their appraiser's demands, we leveraged her large network of contacts in the real estate community (roofers, structural engineers, pool service companies), to get the property up to snuff quickly, no small feat over a Thanksgiving weekend.

Our only criticism is that we wished Annette gave more of an opinion when we were structuring our offers, although we understand that it's a fine line between being heavy-handed and supportive, and also that a bank owner does not negotiate in the same manner as a typical real estate owner. Nevertheless, we highly recommend Annette Holmes to anyone else shopping for a home.

I'm so glad to hear your home buying experience with Annette was positive. Especially given the difficulties that are common bank-owned properties. Her versatility under pressure is just one of the many attributes she brings... and one of the reasons our team is so successful. Thank you for working with Annette and the Rachael Richards Group- we look forward to assisting you again someday.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $200K in Ahwatukee Foothills, Phoenix, AZ.

The best Realtor in the Phoenix area! I live in the Chicago suburbs and I needed to sell my mothers homes in Phoenix. I thought it would be very difficult to sell a home from out of state but Rachael and her team made it easy for me and my family. Her procedures, marketing and communication is second to none. While working and living in Chicago Rachael and her team stepped up there communication with me through phone calls, emails and text. Rachael's marketing power cannot be matched, She was able to get us a cash deal, a closing date that worked with our schedule and a contract above our asking price!! The buyer had a home inspection and Rachael was able to assist us in getting the punch list done with her service contractors. We cannot speak highly enough about Rachael and her team.

I highly recommend hiring Rachael Richards.

I really appreciate your flattering feedback, especially hearing your experience was exceptional. I'm proud of the processes we've developed to make your life simpler and the incredible team we have to provide you with top-notch service. Even though we're one of the top teams in the Phoenix valley, I feel there are always opportunities to learn and improve. And, ultimately, give even better service the next time around. Thank you so much!

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 in Ahwatukee Foothills, Phoenix, AZ.

My family has recently listed our home with Rachael and her group. Thus far we feel that both Rachael and her team have been fantastic. We were planning on interviewing several realtors as our past experience was not positive. Rachael came prepared with a very professional presentation and was well prepared to answer all our questions. Everything was so well done, we quickly made the decision to work with her within 5 minutes after the initial discussion. She was truly interviewing for the job.

We have been impressed with the simplicity of the listing process. The paperwork was all electronic and any questions were quickly answered. Rachael also sent in a staging expert as well as a professional photographer to truly bring out the assets of the home.

It has also been a pleasure working with her team, they are all very responsive and knowledgeable about the listing process. Kristi was very prompt and available for any questions.

We're never too busy for you but I'm sure you'd agree, it does seem like time is more limited every day. Our processes have been streamlined and perfected to make everything smooth and simple for you while giving us more time to focus on getting your home sold. I'm extremely confident in our services but what's truly important is knowing you're pleased with the experience. Our entire team is excited to be working with you and we look forward to bringing you success very soon.
