These two together are so sweet, kind, professional and efficient. I could text and call anytime and would always get a response. I could see houses as soon as they were listed and always had a chance to get a first offer in. These two are incredibly good at what they do and I am so thankful for their time and assistance in getting the perfect place.

I would never use another realtor in the East Valley and beyond. (We have bought a house with MJ as our realtor and sold a home as well). Simply put MJ is the best!

              • Mary Jo and Mike have helped me sell two homes and buy one other. I highly recommend them. Mary Jo involves herself during the entire process, from negotiating, and valuing, to making phone calls and arrangements with repairmen. Mary Jo responds immediately by text, email and phone.

                - Relocation move to Chandler
              • We were moving to the Phoenix area for two new jobs as physicians. We had a very small window of time to find a house in the very hot housing market. We have a friend who is a real estate agent in another big US city and she referred us to Mike and Mary Jo. We were so fortunate that we were able to work with them, they are a fantastic team! We came to town every other weekend and Mike always made sure to reserve time to show us multiple homes. His kind, calm, and affable personality made him a pleasure to spend time with! Once we bought our home we transitioned to working with Mary Jo who is sharp, fast, fun, and efficient, and made the buying process a breeze. Both are very honest and trustworthy and have unparalleled knowledge of the housing market and the buying process. We have very high standards and give them our highest recommendation. We would not hesitate to use them again in the future

                - New jobs new state-Mesa
              • We recently purchased a home in Mesa, Arizona, remotely (from St. Charles, MO!). A real estate agent in Missouri connected us to Mary Jo out in Arizona. The last house we purchased was almost 26 years ago and this time, we were relying completely on an agent 1400+ miles away. Needless to say, we were very anxious at first. However, Mary Jo went above and beyond so many times. She did numerous Face Time walk throughs with us and provided us with HONEST opinions and insight. She also helped us get hooked up with all the other necessary people for closing--banker, title company, flooring, etc. She was on top of EVERY single thing we asked of her and we are so grateful to have been connected to her. The entire process could not have gone any smoother, even if we had been there in person. We are extremely grateful for Mary Jo's professionalism and her super fast response time every time we reached out to her. She is definitely an A++++ realtor and without any hesitations at all, we would highly recommend her. Our new home in Mesa is GREAT!!

                - New Remote Buyer- Mesa, AZ
              • Mary Jo is awesome! There is no better way to describe her and her team. I am convinced she is the best real estate agent in the valley. She is hard working, dedicated and genuine, plus very very knowledgeable. It was my mine and my wife's first time selling / buying a home at the same time. Mary Jo was extremely helpful. She was there to give us advice or guidance when we needed it and was very accommodating. She was available anytime we needed her and she always made sure that we had everything we needed. She made us feel like she really had our best interest at heart and we always knew she was working hard for us. She knew the market, understood all the ends and outs, and always pointed us in the right direction. It is stressful buying and selling a home, but we were able to take comfort in the fact that we had a great agent. I could not recommend Mary Jo anymore, she is an amazing real estate agent and a great person. Thank you Mary Jo for helping us find our forever home!!!!

              • Both Mary Jo and Mike Santistevan were extremely responsive and helpful with all aspects of buying a house, from responding to messages and arranging showings quickly, to arranging inspections, and getting paperwork done. Their experienced eyes when seeing properties were also very helpful.

                - CV- Phoenix, AZ
              • Mary Jo made us feel like we were her only clients. What I mean by that is every time we had a question (no matter the huge time difference from our past duty station), she always got back to us promptly. She is honest and hardworking and will not stop until she finds the right house for you.

                - ALH- Buckeye, AZ
              • Mary Jo stood by us for 2 years as we suffered fits and starts of moving, then not moving, then finally moving after all that time. And when we listed, she walked us right through not only the process, but the contractors, services, and range of options we needed to consider to give this old house to new owners who would appreciate and repair her.I hope we never have to move again...but if we do, our first call will be to Mary Jo. We trust and value her knowledge, expertise, and clearly kind and forgiving manner after working with us for 2 years

                - Greatful Client- Scottsdale, AZ
              • Absolutely impressed with Mary Jos professionalism, transparency, and responsiveness. As a first time home buyer, she ensured we understood the buying process, and ultimately helped us secure the home we wanted.

                - JH- Gilbert, AZ
              • Mike and Mary Jo were absolutely great. They helped me find our perfect family home. Mike has patience of a saint and is seriously the kindest, most open minded, outgoing realtor ever. Mary Jo is equally the same,, patient, very thorough, knowledgeable and works very hard to get you what you want. They do not pressure you and are really there when you need them. I have had my opportunity to meet a handful of realtors in the valley and none of them come close to this dynamic duo. Thanks so much Mary Jo and Mike... it was nothing short of a pleasure to work with you.Less

                - M.A.- Phoenix, AZ
              • We have used Mary Jo for two sales and two subsequent purchases. We couldn't be more happy with her knowledge and her ability to go the extra mile. She is the last realtor you will ever need.

                - M.S.- Mesa, AZ
              • I have been MAJORLY Critical of RE Agents in the past, asking why they were even needed in today's market? Mary Jo and her husband Mike were stellar, patient, thorough and follow through was beyond expectation.

                - G. Gomez- Phoenix, AZ
              • Mary Jo Santistevan is a true Real Estate Professional. Mary Jo is truly an expert in the Phoenix Real Estate market. She evaluated our home for sale readiness, provided a spot on market analysis and priced our house accordingly. Our home subsequently sold quickly at exactly her predicated market value. Mary Jo was with us for the entire sale process and her expertise was invaluable. It is no wonder Mary Jo and her team are ranked so high within the Berkshire Hathaway sales organization

                - Joe Smith- Gilbert, AZ
              • Mary Jo was by far the best realtor I have ever worked with. If you want someone who works tireless hours completing every task and detail, you want Mary Jo. Listed our house on a Thursday and after her open house on Friday and Saturday, we had multiple offers with eight, (yes, I said 8) offers of full price or higher. She knows and understands the local markets and can help guide the process of both selling and buying a new home. We just can't thank Mary Jo and her team enough for finding the perfect home for us and selling our home.

                - T. Willer- Gilbert, AZ
              • Mary Jo is a consummate professional. She handled our transaction from beginning to end with grace, caring, and timely interventions. We had some difficulty with our condo sale held up because of a claim against the HOA by one of the other owners in our complex, but she was persistent until we sold. I would recommend her without reservation. She is one of the most honest, responsible and professional person I have ever dealt with

                - N. Weiner- Dobson Ranch- Mesa
              • Mary Jo and Mike Santistevan did a great job of navigating the process of buying our home here in AZ. We are from out of state and were unsure of the area. They made great suggestions based on our wants and needs and we are very happy with our home and city selection.

                - Karen- Gilbert, AZ
              • Mary Jo helped us find our getaway home in Scottsdale AZ. She was great to work with, very responsive and guided us through the home buying process. As out of state buyers, she helped us find the perfect neighborhood that met all of our wants and needs.

                - Out of state Buyer- Scottsdale, AZ
              • Great experience with Mary Jo when recently selling our home in Ahwatukee. Mary Jo was very knowledgeable and responsive. Our corporate relocation had us out of the state before final closing and Mary Jo went above and beyond making sure everything was lined up for the buyers. Thank you for helping us get a quick offer/close!

                - JS- Ahwatukee (Phoenix) AZ
              • Mary Jo sold our home in Ahwatukee. We corporately relocated and she was wonderful. The process is more complicated than a standard sale with lots of red tape. Mary Jo was very knowledgeable with all of the in and outs. She also helped us handle some last minute (sort of large) projects being done on our home after we moved out of state. She helped manage the entire process flawlessly. We can not recommend her enough!

                - CS- Ahwatukee (Phoenix, AZ)
              • I simply can't say enough good things about Mary Jo and Mike. We have worked with other real estate agents that simply don't hold a candle to them. I removed was a bit complicated since we were moving across the country and unable to view most of the properties in person. They went above and beyond what we ever would have expected from a real estate agent including helping us find local work after the sale was finalized. There is a reason they are some of the most successful real estate agent in Arizona. They were so fantastic they helped my father with his cross-country move as well and again went far above and beyond

                - DL- Scottsdale, AZ
              • Mary Jo is the best. I have worked with many realtors and, and she is the best I have ever worked with period. I highly recommend her as she is very knowledgeable, responsive, and great to work with.

She is wonderful, knowledgeable, quick to respond, and very professional! Her whole team is! And, she has the best recommendations for service people! I have not been disappointed with any of her recommendations!Looking to Buy or Sell a house...Mary Jo is the person for you!

                - Weinberger- Scottsdale
              • 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.

              • 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.

              • 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.

              • 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.

              • 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.

                - The Chiangs
              • 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.
