My Partner in Real Estate and in life is my wife, Anne. We have been married for over 30 years, have worked together for over 26 years and have been a team in Real Estate for over 15 years. We enjoy working together in Real Estate because we both offer areas of expertise and we appreciate that in each other. I am an expert negotiator and problem solver, I enjoy “making things happen”. I excel in assisting a Seller in preparing a home for Listing and working with Buyers throughout the process to prepare them for the move to their new home. This service goes beyond the “Close of Escrow”, I am here for you well after a transaction is completed. Anne knows the Sedona Real Estate market better than anyone I know. Her specialty is transaction management. Anne’s goal is that each client is comfortable throughout the buying or selling process. She works to make sure that any questions or concerns are addressed. She prepares clients for each stage of the process. Our motto is "Connecting Hearts and Homes". We embrace the idea that a Real Estate transaction involves much more than paperwork. It involves working from the heart. We strive to combine the utmost professionalism with kindness & thoughtfulness. We believe that a successful Real Estate transaction requires dedication, common sense, reliability and the ability to make it a fun and enjoyable experience. It is imperative to know the current market, knowing the area (I grew up in Sedona), understanding the nuances of Today’s financing and the importance of good investments. On a personal level we have bought homes, sold homes, bought lots, sold lots, built homes and remodeled homes. We have bought properties for investment, for speculation and properties to call home. We understand what Buyers and Sellers experience during a real estate transaction because we have been there ourselves, many times. Whether Buying or Selling, we do everything possible to make sure that your experience is stress free. We make sure that everything gets done in a timely manner so as to ensure a smooth transaction. We will go the extra mile for you! We look forward to the opportunity to serve you. --Jim French, Russ Lyon | Sotheby’s International Realty.
