        • From start to finish, Mary Jo was a joy to work with: professional, a good listener, and very responsive to my needs and questions via phone, text, and email, as I was selling my home from out of state. She took all the stress out of the process and coordinated so many little details for me, including really reasonably-priced handyman repairs. I was surprised a real estate transaction could really be so painless. Wish I'd found her years ago. Thank you, Mary Jo.

          - Renocreek- Ahwatukee Foothills, Phoenix
        • We have worked with Mary Jo for over a decade. We have bought and sold homes all over the US and Mary Jo is by far the most efficient, knowledgeable, client-focused Real Estate professional with whom we have ever worked. This most recent sale was in the Ahwatukee area of Phoenix. Mary Jo is an expert in the Phoenix market, with deep expertise in Ahwatukee. She worked very closely with us every step of the way from initial pricing and marketing, to keeping us informed throughout the process and even arranging for a convenient closing at the Title Company to accommodate our crazy travel schedules. In addition to Mary Jo's exceptional representation and service, she is backed by a powerhouse team of professionals at Team Santistevan. Mary Jo, thank you for all you have done for us over the years!!

        • We have used Mary Jo on many buying and selling transactions. She just sold our Gilbert rental home, and it was the most easiest process.This would be the third house she has helped with. She was extremely helpful with getting the rental house ready to sell, with helping getting items fixed and the house painted. She had many great referrals and helped set everything up for us.She is wonderful to work with and will answer any questions you have. We will for sure be using her in the future

        • From the very first moment we met Mary Jo, we could tell her knowledge and familiarity with the Chandler area real state market, as well as her passion for selling. She offered a clear, transparent and realistic time line for getting our home ready to go to market as well as the expectations for days on market based on our particular situation.To our surprise, our home sold in just 10 days from going to market and Mary Jo made the whole contract negotiation process a breeze

          - Cabrejas5- Chandler
        • We had the pleasure of working with Mary Jo Santistevan during our Home buying process. This was a stressful time as we were selling a house, buying a house, and a pregnancy due at any time. As with most home buying experiences, we had plenty of situations that popped up that we were not prepared for; thanks to Mary Jo, and her experience, she was able to help handle all situations, as well as provide excellent direction and advise. Mary Jo is extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and you definitely feel like she is always looking out for your best interest. I will be recommending Mary Jo to all friends, family, and colleagues needing a real estate professional.

        • Mary Jo went above and beyond to help us buy our first home in Tempe. She made sure that we knew all the steps in buying a house, and made the process as stress free as possible. You wont find another realtor that treats you like family from start to finish. We will definitely be using Mary Jo for any realty needs in the future

          - Ryan Halligan
        • Mary Jo and Mike did an amazing job and made our move from Chicago to Chandler easy and stress-free! They helped every step of the way to make things went smoothly and without hiccups! We cant recommend them enough!

        • I have worked with many realtors with buying and selling my properties in Arizona, but Mary Jo is by far the best. I will only use her in my future real estate transactions. If I could give more then 5 stars I would.

          - user4010
        • We had moved from NYS to Arizona in late February. My wife and I were looking for a home to purchase in Arizona and began working with Mike and Mary Jo Santistevan. Immediately there was a comfort level that allowed for honest and direct conversation. We looked at numerous homes and finally found our "forever" home in Chandler, Arizona- 3 miles from my wife's sister's home so everything fell into place. Mary Jo was instrumental in negotiating the best contract for us and actually got a few extras added in that we never thought of. I would recommend them and will recommend them to anyone looking for a home. I was dreading this process until Mary Jo and Mike came along. LOL.

          - jtschraff
        • Mary Jo is hands down the best realtor I have ever worked with. She sold my house is Ahwatukee in 2018. She follows through faithfully and helped me find the craftsmen I needed to respond quickly and economically to the home inspection repairs. The marketing brochure was gorgeous and the house sold to the fourth shopper! I am delighted to recommend her unconditionally

          - holmesholustic
        • Mary Jo was most helpful in detailing the suggestions to prepare our house for the very professional photo session. Showstopping touches made the pictures attract interested buyers. We followed every suggestion given and were delighted with the results

          - user4281
        • We hired Mary Jo to sell our home in Ahwatukee and it was the best real estate decision I've ever made. I have bought and sold many homes in the past but this sale was, by far, the best and easiest transition thanks to Mary Jo. I had multiple offers my home within 48 hours... at asking price!!I was relocating out of state and had to move quickly. Mary Jo handled EVERYTHING including help with home inspections, and procuring quality contractors to address issues. Always available and responds quickly to phone calls and texts... day or night.Savvy, professional, knowledgeable...I highly recommend her... she's a real Rock Star in the biz!

          - Martin and Susan D.
        • Mary Jo and husband Mike are the consummate professionals. We were on a work relocation from Canada and they guided us through the process to find our house in Scottsdale. We started working on finding the right house in August 2018. We finally found the perfect house in late November and moved in early December. The short close was well handled by them and the mortgage specialist they recommended. We are well into January 2019 and continue to work with Mary Jo and Mike because they have excellent referrals to trades people. And in return, we have already had the pleasure of sending them referral clients who are looking to purchase a property in Scottsdale.

        • I felt compelled to write this review as I have had such wonderful experiences with Mary Jo. She is extremely knowledgable and never is afraid to steer you in the right direction, whether she is to benefit or not. (Which is so rare in today's times) She will hold your hand through the arduous process when selling or buying a home, and she has always been able to find a solution for me when outrageous things happen during escrow. (i.e. Someone breaks into your home while in escrow... If your home falls out of escrow... Huge repair costs come back from the buyer... etc.) If she is available to work for you, I would definitely not hesitate when looking for a qualified and competent realtor.

        • I solicited the services of Mary Jo based on her ability to get top dollar for a neighboring home. I was beyond pleased with her ability to represent our property. Mary Jo is an example of a true professional. Throughout the process of selling our home she was patient, informative, diligent and easily accessible no matter the time or day.

          - Gregory McDaniels
        • Mary Jo did an amazing job selling our house. I was working with a relocation company and she took care of all of the little details required by the relocation company. She was very honest about aspects of the house that would make it sell quickly and for the best price. She even went the extra step taking care of items like carbon monoxide detectors just to make sure the inspection went smooth. She was great a communicating via calls, texts, and emails which was especially helpful because I had moved across the country. Thank you so much Mary Jo for all of your help

          - Jonathan Abel-Millman
        • Mary Jo and her team were totally professional, smart, detailed, experienced, responsive and helped shepherd our property to the close. A gem and would gladly recommend her for any real estate needs.

          - Gary Marks
        • I highly recommend Mary Jo and her husband Mike for your realty needs in the Ahwatukee area of Phoenix. They take care of you and have great suggestions and resources to sell your home. They had reliable recommended vendors for all of our repairs and updates. I would not think of using anyone else due to our experience with them

          - Craig Anderson
        • Mary Jo and Mike (Team Santistevan) has set the standard for the real estate services. As a tag team, they do not leave any stone unturned. One of the things that Mary Jo did for us was that she took the time to provide us with the contact info needed to keep the house operational before we got our bearings (pool service, gardener, etc.) That gave us a peace of mind that was priceless, and still is! We appreciate Team Santistevan!

          - George and Sylvia
        • When I relocated to PHX Mary jo and I connected weeks before my arrival. She got me the information needed that made my search, when I did arrive, efficient and easy. I was well educated on my selected markets. In the end it was Mary Jo's relationship with the other realtor that got my deal done and navigated a competitive market. Thank you. Also was able to close in three weeks in part to Mary Jo having her act together and keeping all teams on track. A month later Mary Jo continues to support my new home as I make some updates. Highly recommend Mary Jo and Husband Mike as your realtor team.

          - Eric Berry
        • Mary Jo is amazing to work with and is extremely dedicated to ensuring that everything runs smoothly during the buying and selling process. She is the most responsive person, to questions, concerns and request that I've ever worked with! We were originally selling a house with her for relocation and decided to buy another through her as well. She made it all come together like clock work and we could not be any happier! I would Highly recommend her and her team!

          - James and Kim
        • Your search for a real estate professional ends here. Mary Jo met with me as often as I wanted, replied to my texts and emails immediately, and applied her deep experience regarding pricing, timing and negotiating. Also, at critical points in the process, Mary Jo came through in unexpected ways that moved us closer to closing. Overall, Mary Jo made a potentially stressful experience very smooth and transparent. Looking back, I really could not have asked for a better agent than Mary Jo.

          - Paul Weinberger
        • Mary Jo is the BEST! She and her husband are a great team! Very professional and extremely attentive to the seller's needs and concerns. My husband and I were VERY HAPPY with Mary Jo and her team from the beginning of the selling process to the end of the selling process at closing! If you want professionalism with a personal touch...Mary Jo is the agent for you!

          - Zina
        • We sold our home in Ahwatukee with Mary Jo Santistevan. She is the best! Anything you need, she is there to help. Very knowledgeable about the area, comparable homes and getting the right buyer for your home. I would never use anyone else to buy or sell a home. I would recommend her to anyone I know buying or selling a home. What a great experience.

          - Dana
        • Mary Jo is the most wonderful, caring, and effective real estate agent you could hope for! I know that sounds overly effusive, but after 6 months with an ineffectual agent, we found Mary Jo because she had sold a home right on our street in Ahwatukee. She righted the wrongs and promptly sold our home for the price we needed. She came in and helped us stage our home correctly, took beautiful pictures and correctly posted them, and walked us through everything with the most patience. She even helped us with needed repairs! We appreciated her so much that when it came time to purchase a new home, we insisted she be our agent for that too!

          - Alan
        • Mary Jo was a true professional and a rock star! I had interviewed several realtors and decided Mary Jo was the person we wanted to hire to sell our home. I have relocated numerous times in my career and I was so impressed with her knowledge, energy, marketing, honesty and level of communication through the entire process. We have 3 offers within 24 hours of our listing and got a full price offer. Mary Jo is someone that I would HIGHLY recommend!

          - John and Andrea
        • Mary Jo is the most professional, honest, reliable realtor we have ever worked with. She was always responsive to our needs and genuinely cared about our family. She helped us find the home that was perfect for our family and saw the deal through to the end. She is a master of negotiation and made sure every part of the transaction was taken care of from beginning to end. We never had to worry that things weren't getting done or steps were being missed.

          - James and Kim Martin
        • We cannot say enough about Mary Jo and her husband Mike. We relocated to Chandler, AZ and were somewhat overwhelmed with everything from purchasing the home to small remodels we wanted to do. They were very knowledgeable about the are and even helped keep us away from some properties that would have been a mistake for us. Mary Jo and Mike had awesome contacts who were able to turn our home in to a turn key experience. It was not all rainbows and butterflies though as we had a somewhat unique situation arise with a future neighbor and they were able to rely on her to resolve it. Both Mary Jo and Mike were recommended by friends of ours who had to relocate for work like we did and we are so thankful that they recommended them. We are truly thankful for them and are blessed to know them.

          - Freddy and Dominque
        • Mary Jo and her husband Mike were amazing. She is incredibly responsive, highly knowledgeable and will work hard to get you a great deal. As a first-time home buyer, I had a lot of questions. Mary Jo answered everything fully and made the purchase of our home go so smoothly. I highly recommend Mary Jo

          - Cody
        • Mary Jo listed our home. She helped walk us through the process of what needed to be fixed before we listed our home. She helped us navigate people looking at our home. She then helped us work out the sale. She was kind, professional, responsible, and a joy to work with. I would highly recommend her!!!!

          - Kim Sutton
        • Mary Jo is the most professional realtor we have worked with. She is highly skilled in negotiations and closing the deal. I particularly valued her honesty and openness. I highly recommend her to anyone in need of a professional Realtor

          - Steve Gruler
        • My husband and I just purchased a home in Fulton Ranch, Chandler AZ. The entire process from start to finish was seamless and we owe that all to our realtor Mary Jo. Mary Jo's professionalism and responsiveness is second to none. Her experience and knowledge of the market allowed us to get the home of our dreams. We have worked with many realtors in different states and working with Mary Jo was by far the best experience. Thank you for helping us find the home of our dreams and making everything happen for our family Mary Jo

          - John and Jovani
        • Mary Jo is amazing, knowledgeable and an expert at her job! I Would never do real estate business without her!! She has helped me purchase two homes and sell a home. Mary Jo has also assisted me with rental properties as well.

          - Kim
        • Mary Jo is simply the best - responsive, knowledgeable and resourceful. She will manage all aspects of your sale or purchase including the little things that make a BIG difference. Excellent with out of state investors too. Simply the best realtor I know.

          - Scott
        • Mary Jo is the most knowledgeable and professional realtor we have dealt with over the last 30 years. She gave us excellent advice on obtaining the best deal on the sale of our home. We would highly recommend her services

          - Irene
        • Mary Jo was as professional and proactive as they come. She helped us every step of the way, and went above and beyond what I expected to ensure we found the home we were looking for. Not only did we find a great house in which we can be happy for a long time, we avoided some other homes that would have been much less satisfying in retrospect. I could not recommend Mary Jo more highly for a knowledgeable, smooth, and informed home buying experience.

          - Peter Jannen
        • We recently purchased a new home in Ahwatukee with the help of Mary Jo and I cannot say enough about how wonderful our experience was. We decided to purchase in the beginning of 2016, but we were in no hurry, we just wanted to find the perfect home. Mary Jo patiently showed us many homes over the course of 9 months and never ever pressured us to buy. In fact, in a few cases gave us some important information about the home or the area that ended up deterring us from making an offer. We really appreciated her honesty and we knew she was really committed to protecting our interests. In the past 10 years we have purchased 3 homes and worked with different realtors each time and Mary Jo was by far and away better than the others. If you need to buy or sell, rest assured that you will be very well represented by Mary Jo!

          - Sergio and Debbie
        • We met Mary Jo and Mike Santistevan about 5 years ago when we moved to Arizona. They helped us find a good house to rent, after visiting multiple options. They helped us review the lease contract and make sure there were no clauses we should be concerned about. We worked with them again when we bought our first house, in Chandler AZ. Thanks to them agreeing to show us that house during a weekend (after a 8 hours drive from Texas, thanks Mike!) we were able to get a great deal on a great house before other offers. We worked with Mary Jo again to buy a house in Phoenix. She was very patient working with us, showing several houses until we found the one we wanted. We worked with Mary Jo again to sell the Chandler house. She was awesome on this transaction, she truly went above and beyond on many aspects of this sale, from helping stage the house, set up open houses, negotiate offers etc. To sum it up, Mary Jo was very professional during every one of our real state transactions, and her knowledge, experience and willingness to help us get a great deal were key for us. I do recommend her to any friend in the Arizona area looking for a great Realtor.

          - Pedro and Meg
        • Mary Jo is by far the best realtor I have ever worked with! This is the second sale she has handled for me, and I could not be more pleased with how things were handled. She is professional, knowledgeable, and extraordinarily reliable. She goes above and beyond to ensure the deal closes and that all parties walk away happy. She is accessible, friendly, kind, and extremely honest. She partners with her husband Mike, who is also a tremendous asset as a realtor. As a team, they are force. If you have had issues with realtors in the past, give Mary Jo and Mike a try, they will win you over. They did me.

          - Ryan Sullivan
        • Mary Jo is excellent! She knows how to sell houses! My first house sold in one day. Second house sold in three days! Whatever you need done to your house Mary Jo knows who to contact. She listens to her clients and gets the house sold! I will always do real estate with her.

          - Karen Morton

          - Charmainne Espina
        • I had a house in Phoenix Ahwatukee area and planned to sell it when I moved to other state. This is my first time to sell my house. Mary helped me understand the selling process, the listing strategy, and how to prepare the house before listing on market. She is very professional and responsible. I was out of town and Mary took care everything of the house for me throughout the sale process: house maintenance, repair, documentation, and active working with buyer's agent. I am very satisfied with my choice and definitely highly recommend her if you are looking for a agent in Phoenix area!
