Listed and sold a home

They went above and beyond our expectations. Their knowledge of market conditions was very accurate and gave us a an above asking price. We would have listed to low and probably sold to low. Our condo sold the same day it went on market with two offers above asking. And in the purchase of a new home they got us a home with multiple offers and in high demand. Most important through the whole process their integrity and concern for our interest was their priority. In addition their humor and personalities made it a very quality experience.

Helped me buy home

We loved working with Al and Jean Batson! They went above and beyond in helping us purchase a place in Scottsdale!! Highly recommend these two for your realtors!!

Even 6 stars wouldn't be high enough. Al and Jean went the extra miles to sell our two condos at above the average market price. The first sold in ONE DAY! Then 2nd needed more help and expertise but that one sold in LESS THAN A WEEK! As out-of-state sellers, we couldn't have asked for better agents working on our behalf. Thank You, Al & Jean!Lynn & Andy

Very knowledgeable. Followed up on all details through closing. Very responsive to questions with appropriate answers. Did not waste our time showing us properties of no interest.A delight to work with.

Helped me buy home

Jean and Al did an outstanding job in helping me secure my first home purchase. They put me in touch with the best in the business from securing a home loan to signing the final paperwork. I had a lot of questions but they were so very patient with me, making sure that I understood what was happening each step of the way. Thank you for making this as painless as possible!

Helped me buy home

Al & Jean Batson are the 2 most professional, experienced team in Real Estate. My husband and I have purchased 2 homes through them and both times we were ready to close early and they proactively negotiated credits and fees to protect us and our investment. We will only use Al & Jean for any real estate transactions. They treated us like family and we have fallen in love with them.

Jean and Al were wonderful from start to finish in the process of selling my condo. They were on top of everything, from knowledge of the market , to the strategy to price and move the property, to managing the details every step of the way! They literally held my hand and helped with everything, even before i hired them they provided me with contacts from their vast network of trustworthy and realiable vendors. Al and Jean answered all my questions, they were always available via phone, text or in person. I am so thankful to have had the opportunity to work with this dyamic duo. I would highly recommend them!

Helped me buy home

My husband and I really enjoyed working with Jean and Al. We really appreciated how they went above and beyond to help us not only find our perfect home, but also worked hard with our time constraints and contingencies, was readily available and responsive, and gave us tips and advise to make our out of state relocation to Arizona a smooth one. We would definitely recommend Al and Jean to our friends and family.

Helped me buy home

Al an Jean far exceeded my expectations as they went above an beyond in helping me with buying a property in AZ. We worked long distance so they provided me with photos and videos of a property I was interested in. Once I decided to purchase the property, the process was incredibly smooth with their professional assistance. Jean and Al communicated clearly and often with me as we moved toward the closing date. They also helped me find professional cleaners and helped arrange dates for work on my new home before I was able to be there. It is obvious that Al and Jean love what they do, but also care for their customers. They are professional, personable, and I highly recommend them for a great buying or selling experience. You will be in excellent hands! Thank you Al and Jean--you're wonderful! BJ

Al and Jean were instrumental in helping me sell two properties in Arizona. They went above and beyond to make sure that these transactions went very smoothly. I was out of state and they handled it all for me. Very very trustworthy. If you’re looking for realtors in Arizona, you need them! They handled both transactions with the utmost professionalism.
