Many real estate agents will say they love this neighborhood, but not many can say they actually live and work in it. Buying a home is the most important emotional and financial asset you will ever have so it makes sense to work with a local real estate expert you trust and who is involved in the local community on a personal and business level every single day. My ultimate goal is to make sure you walk away feeling great about your new purchase and the home buying experience.
I love working with people and feel it is very important to take on a team approach to every one of my transactions. I have established strong and trusted working relationships with other real estate professionals including lenders, title and escrow providers, appraisers, contractors, and inspectors who can assist and educate my clients through the buying process with ease. Contract negotiation, coordination of timelines, and communication between all parties is paramount to a successful close of escrow.

We have relied heavily on the real estate expertise of The Team for almost 4 years now. During this time their advisement and consulting has helped Rafterhouse comfortably navigate the unique waters of the Arcadia real estate market. In our business dealings, we have found them to be knowledgeable, trustworthy, and loyal in their representation of Rafterhouse. The unique thing however is that life isn’t just about real estate sales and consulting. While our business dealings have been important, The Team’s greatest impact on us has been through the kind, caring, and genuine friendship we’ve developed along the way.
I am writing this letter in recognition of Lara Broadrick of the Team, Russ Lyon Sotheby’s. So that you understand the measurement of our appreciation, Lara took the patient time to show us a large number of homes over a year plus timetable. Frankly, as undecided as we were, i would have probably left us on the curb somewhere after the first couple of months. Every time that we would make the 40 mile drive from Desert Mountain to look at homes with Lara, i would always apologize for wasting so much of her time. She would always say, “I will find you the right home! That’s what i do!” We even joked if someone could make a map of all the streets we drove down, it would be crazy. Then, after a year, Lara called about a house that was going on the market soon. It was more than i wanted to spend, but we made the purchase, without a hitch and just love it.Lara, thank you for your time and patience.Kent PhillipsPresident-Oxford/American Archeological SocietyPhoenix, Arizona
