          Rachael and her team were very thorough, proactive, and responsive with us during our home sale. Their expert advice guided us through some tough decisions, like how to handle the two offers we received. We loved working with them and would highly recommend them to anyone.

        • The Rachael Richards group with HomeSmart did an excellent job selling my home in the Phoenix area. They have the process so laid out and smooth I had no questions and knew things were going along quickly. They also had great communication to me about all the behind the scenes things they were working on. It was a pain free sale of my home with this group!!!

        • My experience has been with Kandi and she has been excellent to work with. She has been responsive to all emails, she contacted me promptly from day one and she held my hand through the entire process which means a lot since this my first home purchase. I would recommend her to anyone. This experience has been very painless and I am very happy with my home purchase.

          - Tanya Burns
        • We worked with Annette Holmes from the Rachael Richards group; she was FANTASTIC! She listened to what we wanted and made sure to find us the perfect home for our family! We did not feel rushed at all in the process even though we were very particular about our home search. We felt supported the entire way through the home buying process! Annette made us feel valued and important...HIGHLY recommend Annette!

          - Tara Dutton
        • I'm sure it seems contrived to just leave 5 stars for everything but in this case, it was well earned. My agent was knowledgeable about the neighborhoods we visited, provided excellent insight, and was essential to the smooth transaction once we found our home. Her responsiveness is next to none; clearly business hours do not apply. We are thoroughly pleased.

          - Michael Schwartz
        • My Agent Annette Holmes was extremely helpful and patient. I was looking for property while living out of state and would fly in on business. Annette made herself availble with very little notice and was very patient as my criteria for a home changed. She also kept an eye out on a house that she thought was perfect for me even after it went into escrow...once the escrow fell throu I was able to come in and purchase my home which I love. Great service from everyone involved at the Rachel Richards Group. If I'm ever in the market again I know who I'll be calling. Highly recommended.

          - Marat Ratmansky
        • My wife and I had a great experience with the Rachel Richards Group, specifically with Kandi! She was awesome, always very helpful and we were able to get in touch with her whenever we had a question. We ended up seeing over 20 homes before we found the one we wanted, and Kandi was so patient with us! We would definitely recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell and will be using them in the future. Thanks Kandi and Rachel Richards Group!

          - Justine Sharp
        • Kandi Andresen was the best!! She was so patient, explained every step of the process, answered every phone call/text, kept us informed about all the details about what was happening, worked closely with loan/title companies for us, and found us THE most perfect house we could have dreamed of (seriously, I love my new house!). I can't stress how important Kandi was during this process, and how much she went above and beyond for us

          - Heather Long
        • This is my first time listing a home with the Rachael Richards team and I can't tell you how knowledgeable everybody has been. I was more than prepared for our first showing with the expertise and guidance from Rachael. I am not exaggerating when I say that this has been ridiculously on stressful. That is the best news when it comes to selling your house and moving. I have sold many many homes in my life and going forward I will only use Rachael Richards.

          - Ingrid Melin
        • We LOVED having Annette as our realtor. She had her hands full as we were living overseas and doing our home search. She and the Rachel Richards team made our experience easy. Even during hiccups they went above and beyond to make sure we got into our new home! We would recommend them to anyone!!

          - Amanda Dumler
        • When my husband and I started thinking about buying our first home, we instinctively started looking on Zillow. I contacted Rachel Ricahards because of all the great reviews she had. She called me back right away and then said she would have one of her associates, Annette Holmes, contact us. Within 10 min she called me. We started the search process, online, about 6 months prior to when we wanted to buy so that way we could see what we could get in our price range and so we could see what things were selling for. Any questions we had she answered right away and her response time was amazing! We always heard back from her within 30 minutes. Once we found the home we'd been looking for, Annette completely outdid herself! She set up every appointment we needed around our schedules, for all the inspections. We didn't have to do a thing but tell her when would be most convenient for us. And she ALWAYS looked out for us to make sure we got the best deal! As first time home buyers we were nervous about the whole home buying process because we had heard so many horror stories, but this was not one of them. Between Annette and our loan officer, they have made this process as smooth and stress free as possible. I couldn't imagine having to work with anyone else and I know once we outgrow our starter home, Annette will be our realtor again! There's no one else I would trust! Thank you Annette Holmes and The Rachel Richards Team for helping my husband and I find our first home! We are forever grateful for all your hard work and look forward to working with you again in the future! - The Snitkers

        • My wife and I began working with Kandi Andresen approximately 9 months ago with the idea of finding the right property to eventually use as a winter "snowbird" home to escape from the not so fun winters of the Northeast. After searching online we came across Kandi and contacted her via email one Sunday. Within 30 minutes we received a call from her and the search began. We subsequently met in Phoenix where she showed us several properties. Although none of them were the right fit, she continued to work with us remotely, showing properties via FaceTime, touring several properties on our behalf, and generally being our eyes in Phoenix for us. We eventually found the right property and she worked us through the process remotely without a hitch. Her attention to our needs, along with her negotiation skills, were without fail. We highly recommend Kandi and the entire Rachael Richards team!

          - P. Jones
        • Working with the Rachel Richards Group has been a great experience. There is a team of very professional individuals. They were extremely responsive even off hours for any question that I had during the process. I would highly recommend using them in the future and would recommend them to anyone that is selling a home. I actually told my neighbor to use them for selling their home just recently. One of the other great things that I did not know was that they coordinated all the repairs needed for my house through contractors they work closely with which alleviated my busy schedule and put me at ease during that process. thanks again for all your help, -Glen R

          - Glen Roberts
        • We started to search for our first home and contacted Kandi via Zillow. She has been fantastic. She was very efficient in searching for houses within our parameters and showed us almost 15-20 houses with a lot of patience before we decided on ours. She guided us with the offer we should make very knowledgeably in our favor without insisting us on something we were not comfortable with. She shared her past experiences with us to make us aware of various possibilities. She never tried to show or pursue us on considering costlier houses than our budget upper limit and we really appreciated that. She showed us some house even more than once! She was very respectful to us. More, she was fun to be around while roaming around to see houses even in the scorching heat. Kandi, thank you so much!

          - Runali Ghosh
        • Working with The Rachael Richards Group to purchase our home was a great experience. Our agent, Kandi Andresen, was absolutely fantastic! Her local knowledge and attention to our requirements were critical components to our long-distance search. She even cleared her calendar to show us homes when we were able to fly in for the weekend. Working with Kandi made the whole process as stress-free as possible. I can't recommend her and The Rachael Richards Group enough.

          - Jeff D'Onofrio
        • I worked with Annette Holmes w/ The Rachael Richards Group. She was very efficient and helped to quickly set up various appointments with vendors to assess the property during the close process. No nonsense, gets the job done, super responsive to all questions and concerns. I typically do not work with buyer's agents as I find them to be unnecessary. When Rachael first assigned me an agent against my preference I was a bit annoyed. Annette was awesome to work with and showed me that there is value in having a buy side agent on your side helping with the close. Thanks Annette!

          - Preston Chang
        • This was my first time buying a house and I met Annette Holmes (part of Rachael Richards group) through zillow to show me my house. She was so helpful, knowledgeable and always available at anytime to talk to and get a hold of. Annette made sure I was comfortable with the process and didn't close the house for me until everything was perfect. She was very detailed and I actually ended up getting the house simply because the owner really liked her and wanted to work with us over other offers he had on the house. I would recommend Annette to any of my friends and family.

          - Nicole Frenchman
        • We are transplants from the Midwest. Kandi Andresen helped us immeasurably from our first contact with her in the Fall of 2014 until our ultimate closing in March of 2015. Her responsiveness in helping us to find a home that we LOVE was so very much appreciated. We would not hesitate to recommend Kandi and Rachel Richards to others looking to buy or sell - and we have!

          - Jim and Julie Croak
        • So my mother decided to sell her home and move in with me... I had never sold a home before or used a real estate agent so I Googled it and Rachael Richards popped up. I figured since she has a bright smile and shares the same name as my daughter I would go with her team. From the moment of first contact to closing, Rachael Richards team of professionals was awesome. They made selling the house a breeze and was there to offer assistance and guidance through many of the things that I just did not want to deal with. Like cleanup, yard work, house work, donating stuff and yard sales. I heard nightmares about selling or buying a house before, I will be utilizing Rachael Richards again for the next home I purchase

          - Rick Yetter
        • Kandi was our realtor. She responded very quick to our questions. She was always available for showings to fit our schedule. (She seem to be always available early in the morning or very late at night, wondered if she ever slept). During the issues we had with closing she kept me calm and kept me updated. After closing we had an issue with our home and contacted her about information on the home warranty. She provided us with that information but, she went the extra step of contacting the seller and having them come back and do the repairs.

          - Mike Thompson
        • [ link omitted ]. When we started to work together I was even more impressed with their solid and cohesive process, I was guided smoothly every step of the way from setting the property up on MLS to the sale of the condo within 10 days. Their performance exceeded my expectations in every categories, we will surely go to this great team when (not if) we need help purchasing or selling properties in Phoenix, AZ. We strongly recommend any property buyer or seller to look for the Rachael Richards team, you will definitely be in good hands.

          - Anhtien Nguyen
        • Out of all of the homes we searched online, and requested to see, Annette Holmes/Rachel Richards Homesmart - was the only one that seemed interested. She called back shortly after submitting our showing request online, and set up a showing of the home for us. She was there for us 24/7 during our many months of looking. AND it was really hot, but she would meet us any time that was convenient for us!! Some of the unoccupied homes had no A/C - and we were melting!! Annette was never in a hurry, showing us the pro's and con's of each property. Once we found "THE ONE" she made the whole buying process smooth and easy. We highly recommend the Rachel Richards Homesmart team - Annette, Rachel and all of them!!

          - Darcy Tice and Terry Gruenstern
        • I found Rachael on Zillow and engaged her services to list my home. You don't just get Rachael, you get her entire team working on your behalf. They have specialists that work on every aspect of the transaction such as initial photography, staging, marketing, negotiation and they keep you informed every step of the way. Our house sold at full asking price with no conditions and we had a backup offer the first day our listing went up. I expected a 3-4 month process but their understanding of the market and how to best position our home to take advantage of the current market conditions expedited the process. I would highly recommend Rachael and her amazing team.

          - Michael Vickers
        • We listed with the Rachel Richards group last month and are thrilled with their level of service so far. Our house is now in escrow thanks to their pristine attention to detail, marketing, and negotiation skills. This was our first time working with a real estate group and it's been awesome because there is always someone available to answer our questions or give us an update. We moved out of state while our house was on the market and after the big storms hit our area, the Rachel Richards group promptly made sure our property was cleaned up and "show ready." They knew how to prepare and market the house in ways I never thought of. We feel very relieved and lucky to have them manage our listing and sell our property.

          - Paula Cook
        • When we met with Rachel about selling our home we decided we didn't need to meet with anyone else. She knew the neighborhood and we felt confident that her team would do a great job and they lived up to our expectations. They were responsive, proactive and gave us good advice when we needed it. About 30 days later we had an offer, closed and couldn't be happier

          - Harley Bonham
        • Had my house sold within approx 5 days!.....Need I say more? The staff, in her office was informative/helpful and their marketing process is truly one of the best in real estate that I have seen. I totally recommend Rachael Richards for any of your real estate needs.

          - Marco Piciacchia
        • I have know and used Rachel for several years. I purchased my first home in Phoenix with Rachel and then did some house flipping where she handled the purchase and the sale. The process was always smooth and hassle free. I recently listed my home for sale. As usual the process was so easy and the follow-up of not just Rachel but her team was amazing. I think the most gratifying has been the constant and quick feedback from her team and from Rachel personally. Rachel is direct and let's you know what to expect. There are no hollow promises to get your business. She knows the market. I can't recommend her enough!

          - Pete Barry
        • I am writing to give my highest recommendation to Jesse Martinez who is with the Rachael Richards Group. We first met Jesse as he helped my daughter buy a home in Ahwatuke. My daughter and my wife and I were extremely impressed with Jesse's professionalism, hard work, and follow-through. So, we had no hesitation about asking Jesse Martinez to help us find a townhome in South Mountain. As you might expect, once again we were extremely impressed. Jesse's friendly, warm, caring personality is a great starting point but it only gets better. His knowledge of the market and helpful suggestions regarding changes we could make to various homes was invaluable. He was patient but helped us realize the importance of making a decision. Jesse arranged for us to meet a contractor at a townhome so we could get an estimate on changes we wanted to make. He talked to the HOA to clear up some concerns we had. The list goes on regarding his help and follow-through. Jesse Martinez is simply the "best." Happily, we found a townhome and a new best friend

          - Tom Tweedy
        • The Rachael Richards group helped my husband and I buy our first home. They took special care of us and walked us through each step of the process. They made our experience one we will never forget! A special thank you to Kristi Escarcega and Kandi Andresen! These ladies are AMAZING!

          - Megan Bourque
        • Selling my home was intimidating. Choosing Rachael Richards and her associates to guide me through the process was such a positive experience. Beginning with signing the initial contract to closing, I was in constant contact with an associate on what was happening. I highly recommend Rachael Richards for your real estate needs. Thank you

          - Boyd
        • The Rachel Richards experience is amazing! They helped us sell my mom's house in 2014 so it was an absolute no brainer to call them when we were ready to buy a house. Annette Holmes is the absolute best. She helped us with everything. She recommended an outstanding mortgage company. She is always professional & made us feel so good about our purchase & the process. She was our best advocate & was always available to answer our questions. I would highly recommend Annette as a buyers agent & the Rachel Richards Group for all of your real estate needs.

          - Candee Ward
        • This was my first home purchase in my life. Annette from Rachel Richards office contacted me immediately when I expressed interest in a property. She helped me find a home in the Ahwatukee Foothills that is beautiful and was in my price range. From start to end Annette Holmes was outstanding. She dealt with my questions patiently and always with confidence and a smile. These folks work hard to get the home that suits your needs and price range. They work fast also, they got me to close successfully in pretty much under a month. I highly recommend this group. Any real estate needs I have in the future no question I will contact Annette and the Rachel Richards group. Thank you guys for your hard work and professionalism.

          - Mike Donovan
        • Just bought a one bed room condo. My Real Estate agent with Rachael Richards was such a huge help to me through the whole process. Took me a long time to find the right place but they were very patient with me. Always very responsive to all my e-mail questions. Want to say thanks so much for all of your help!

          - Mike Rumsey
        • I cannot say enough about the Rachel Richards group. After 8 months of having different realtors and still an unsold home, we were extremely discouraged. When we met with Rachel after hearing nothing but wonderful things, I was impressed within minutes. She was so informative, calming, and gave us hope. After less than 30 days on the market our home that we thought at one point was not even worth selling, was sold. Her advertising , her team, and her pride in her work shows with her results. Thank you Rachel Richards group. You all helped us move on to our next chapter.

          - Charlene Collier
        • Jesse Martinez was awesome, his personality is great and he was very patient. Everyone on their team was very nice and attentive. I'm glad I got the opportunity to work with this company and will be referring anyone I know their way! Kind Regards, K. Wilson.

          - Kenna Wilson
        • I had a great experience with the Rachael Richards Group selling my home and buying another. My home sold in 3 weeks for above asking price, and Annette found me a great new home in my desired neighborhood and helped me coordinate a seamless move. Everyone on the buying and selling side was extremely responsive and easy to contact. I was very pleased with the aggressive marketing of my home and I had constant showings from day 1 on the market. I would not hesitate to recommend this team and will certainly use them again in the future.

          - Jamie Odegard
        • The Best to deal with in Arizona period. Great team!! Great People!! and always very helpful. They also really care about you and do what ever it takes to get your house sold. Would highly recommend! Steve Granitz

          - Steve Granitz
        • I worked with Kandi from the Rachael Richards group and my home buying experience with Kandi was excellent beyond expectations. Kandi accommodated my busy work schedule and found a great home that matched my criteria very efficiently. In addition, Kandi referred me to a great lender and contractors for some post-purchase remodel upgrades.

          - Matt Greving
        • That's what house buying should be,enjoyment and meticulous for details. They guide you thru with a lot of information about the process and advice on how to proceed with no surprise to the end.Thanks to the RACHAEL RICHARDS GROUP I will recommend to friends& family.

          - Jose and Francia Rodriquez
        • I am delighted to tell you that I have used the Rachel Richard's Realty Group twice in a year. They are so professional, they follow through, great with offering their expertise, they make me the priority! I am totally satisfied with their performance and highly recommend them to anyone

          - Nick Dambrosia
        • The Richards group are a team of experts who helped us sell our Arizona house fast. They know the market well and were responsive to our needs and questions always getting back to us quickly, weekends and evenings included. Adriana's direction and negotiations steered us to a fair and quick contract. We are very happy with the experience and would definitely recommend the group to anyone selling or buying.

          - Diane and Mike Fraser
        • Thanks to the help of Annette Holmes I just bought my first condo! She was knowledgeable of the area and was flexible with my work schedule. Overall the process was fairly quick, even though I had to switch loan types in the middle of the process. I felt comfortable throughout the process because I was confident she knew what she was doing (unlike other agents I've worked with).

          - Rheyanne Weaver
        • We were first time home buyers and Kandi helped us through the whole process and made things really simple. She even helped us find a mortgage company which was great as well. I would highly recommend her for any house purchase, whether it's your first time or 100th time. Thanks Kandi!

          - Derek Gerdts
        • Jesse Martinez worked with us and clearly had a lot of patience. We made offers and we had to retract offers due to our situation of location in Chile. Jesse stayed in touch and continued to look for our vacation home until we found just the right home. As I look back the last home was really the best so I am not upset over losing the other homes we were interested in. Since we have purchased homes before in Tucson and Phoenix this townhouse will not be the last one we will purchase and we will contact Jesse once that time arrives.

          - Chris Harrison
        • Great company. Helped me out with everything I needed, especially since the sale was completed and I was not in the local area. They have good knowledge of the area and very resourceful.

          - Vasily Zorin
        • We contacted the Rachael Richards Group to begin the home buying process. Our Realtor Kandi was super awesome and once we found our home, she took care of the rest. This was the BEST home buying experience we've had.

          - Gregg Miller
        • We had a great experience with Rachel Richards Group -- finding the right home for us in a city we had no experience in. They were responsive and helpful every step of the way!

          - Jill Whittier
        • Rachel's exceptional staff went above and beyond what we expected. Her experienced staff was highly responsive to our needs. We would definitely recommend her group to anyone needing real estate services.
