Scott Smith - Lender with Barrett Financial Group
It is hard to figure out how to choose a Realtor. There are a lot of people that are licensed Realtors and they all want to help.
The key is finding a top flight professional to help you with a purchase or sale that will probably be one of the biggest of your lifetime. They need to be:
A Good communicator
Knowledgeable of the local Real Estate market
Aware of how the house is constructed and what utilities are needed
Strong in negotiating repair requests with a network of people for repairs
I have been in home lending since 2003 and have personally dealt with over a 1,000 Realtors. George is an excellent choice to help you. His experience in Real Estate is excellent. I have worked with George and you would be lucky to have him help guide you through the Real Estate process.

We chose George to represent us in finding and purchasing our first multi-family (MF) rental property in Mesa AZ. As out-of-town buyers, we needed an exceptional realtor with expert local knowledge of the MF rental market, and a consistent attention to our needs for information and communication. In addtion to his excellent local MF knowledge and attentive customer care, George brought much real estate expertise to our project. On several occasions he also collaborated with his broker and colleagues to bring us the best available knowledge and experience. George always paid extra attention to detail and was very effective in his communications on our behalf with the 4-plex seller. Our Mesa 4-plex property purchase was very successful, thanks to George Akers. We highly recommend George. Sincerely, Dan and Linda Sturtz (Washington State).
I appreciate George's honesty and integrity and keeping promises. He did things to help get my house ready to sell that I don't think other realtor's would do.
