My husband and I are from Chicago and three months ago, we decided we wanted to retire in Arizona. We started looking on-line for homes. We asked questions and received emails from 4 different Realtors. Karen Simms was the only Realtor I felt confident with. She answered all our questions with simplicity and honesty. She then called us and talked with us for an hour, giving us all kinds of info and the pros and cons of where we were looking to live. We knew right away she was the Realtor we would use. We only had 4 days to visit Arizona, so the pressure was on her, but she devoted all 4 days to us, many hours a day, and made our search as painless as possible. Not only did she help us find a wonderful home, but she gave us valuable info on all the surroundings. Where to eat, shop and site see. Karen helped us with every last detail there was to know. We Thank her for her hard work and dedication. On a scale from 1 to 10, I give her a 10+. Thank you again Karen for all your hard work and I will definitely refer your services to anyone that is interested in moving to Arizona.

We want to thank you and to let you know how much we appreciate all the hard work you did for us during the extremely difficult transaction we had. It was very emotional for us and we know it was an extremely challenging endeavor but you always stepped up to the plate and kept us informed of all the many details that were involved plus explained them when necessary. Your persistence and integrity were not unnoticed and we completely trusted that you were always working diligently to close our deal as quickly as possible. We will always highly recommend all our friends and family to look to you for your invaluable service. Wishing you the best with many rewards.
