"Jessica and the team were tremendous to work with. They made the process of selling our home simple and fluid. I would highly recommend this team to anyone looking for a knowledgeable team that knows the market."
– CHELSEA M.
"I have worked with many real estate brokers and agents on several real estate transact ions over the years and can say with confidence that Arin is the best agent. Arin has the qualities that make her an extremely successful and effective broker. I can’t say enough about her professionalism and knowledge within the industry. She has high integrity and is very conscientious and tenacious, always keeping the client’s best interests in mind. Our real estate sale was extremely complicated due to the advanced ages of my Uncle and Aunt. Her empathy and focus was instrumental in executing the transfer of ownership. One of the qualities I respected the most was her willingness to roll up her sleeves and get the job done."

"When we were relocating to Flagstaff , it was suggested that we contact Kelly Kasprzyk and we were so fortunate to have her as our real estate agent. Kelly is not only energetic and a joy to work with, she worked tirelessly and patiently to help us find the perfect Flagstaff home for our specific needs in this new locale. She not only knows this market and details of all neighborhoods in Flag, she was also extremely helpful during all parts of the process with offering through closure and then our move in. We couldn't be happier with the results."
– PENNY D.
"We had a wonderful experience buying our home with Tad Moore. He is patient and full of knowledge. He guides us through the process and helped us make some very tough negotiations.

I highly recommend Tad to anyone buying a home, he is a fantastic agent!!! He will go the extra mile and then some!"

"Let’s put it this way: I would not buy or sell a home without Marian Armstrong. Best realtor in Flagstaff. She loves and knows Flagstaff like nobody else, she’s ridiculously savvy about helping you find the perfect fit, expertly guiding you through the maze of home buying and selling. That expertise is even more essential now than ever. She takes the time to get to know her clients and goes above and beyond for each and every one of them. If I could give her 6 stars I would!

A great resource in our town."

"Can’t say enough good things about Jessica Garard and the team at Best Flagstaff Homes Realty... As Flagstaff natives, nobody knows the town and the market better. Jessica is professional, down to earth, accessible and so easy to communicate with. She helped us key in on our favorite neighborhoods and then navigate an extremely competitive sellers market. Through her network, we were able to get a first opportunity and capitalize on an amazing house with forest access. Jessica coached us every step of the way from making an offer, getting under contract, navigating inspections and then closing. She had professionals at her fingertips for every need that arose."
– SCOTT A.
"Eric Davis is an *amazing* agent. He walked us around a bunch of properties virtually before we arrived in town, and then helped us get a fantastic home that we love (not an easy task in this insane market). And what's more, he's been there every step of the way to help us find local handymen, remodelers, etc. He knows pretty much everyone in Flagstaff, and he's more than happy to help out. Also, to boot, he's one of the nicest people we've ever met. Can't recommend him and his agency highly enough."

– KRISTINA W.
"Tad was awesome to work with! His knowledge of Flagstaff real estate and insight on the market proved to be invaluable in navigating a very competitive market. He was also extremely helpful and detailed in pointing out features/sharing his perspectives during our video showings which made us feel comfortable when we ultimately made an offer...which was accepted (woot- thanks, Tad!)! We just closed on our house & Tad is going above & beyond expectations by continuing to assist us with some logistical coordination w/local utilities as we are currently out of state. We highly recommend Tad!"

"We bought our first home with Sara at Elite Team, the whole experience was wonderful so naturally we returned to her for the purchase of our second home. She couldn’t have done a better job for us! It all fell together so seamlessly because of Sara’s hard work. She found us a house that checked all our boxes plus some! It’s a home for our family. A sanctuary. We are so thankful for her knowledge and her determination to find us an incredible forever home. Thank you Sara and Elite Team for the dedication you show all your clients and this community!"

Kelly, thank you so much for all you have done for us!"
