Val Vista Lakes Homes For Sale in Gilbert AZ

Val Vista Lakes in Gilbert AZ is my primary community specialty because we have lived in Val Vista Lakes since 2004, frequent the Clubhouse, and am active in the community.

Therefore, I know a lot about the community, the Val Vista Lakes Clubhouse, its' internal management structure, the lakes, the community real estate market, the sub-communities, and the goals of the community.

I'm also very knowledgable about other  great communities in Gilbert AZ including The Islands, El Dorado Lakes, Power Ranch, Spectrum at Val Vista, Agritopia, and Seville, which a a golf community and the largest planned community development in Gilbert.

There are many qualities and skills that go into being an excellent real estate home sales professional. There is integrity, which is an absloute must; in-depth community, market knowledge, marketing savvy, internet marketing materials and skills; effective negotiation skills and a high-quality professional network, all of which are hallmarks of how I work. 

That said, in my experience as a Gilbert AZ, and Metropolitan Phoenix and East Valley real estate professional, I've also found that providing the very best service is essentially about putting my real estate clients first. This means keeping myself accessible, answering my phone (or returning calls promptly) being a good listener as well as a good communicator, and responding quickly to your needs. 

I had a 28 year career as an international airline pilot for Pan Am where my passengers, who were the company's clients, were my primary concern. It was of paramount importance that my passengers had to reach their destination comfortably and safely. We worked hard to make that happen.

That "client first" philosophy has always been my business approach and it requires me to continually improve my skills and ways of doing business in the Val Vista Lakes and Gilbert AZ real estate business.

In addition, I've found that the latest technologies are enabling me to do everything I've always done, only much more quickly and efficiently. They've also helped me to extend the range of services I provide to my clients. 

I have knowledge and proficiency in handling short sale negotiations for either Buyers or Sellers

Free MLS Searches for Val Vista Lakes Gilbert AZ, Chandler, Mesa, Tempe, Scottsdale and the entire Phoenix Metropolitan area are made available to my clients.
