Ben Swanson
Keller Williams Integrity First
About Ben

My Real Estate journey started in 1999 when I bought my first condo in Mesa. The agent used was very unprofessional and not very organized. On closing day, I went to sign final docs and the title company said; "You need $1000 in your account for “reserves” ". Not only did I not know what that was (at 19 years old), but didn’t have the money. Luckily, I was able to borrow it from a friend and close. I made a vow when I got my license to NEVER let that happen to a client, EVER! Market Expertise, extreme communication and negotiating EVERY TIME! From the seasoned investor that says, “STOP UPDATING ME, I know you are on your game” to the 1st time home seller/buyer that says, “ thanks for calling me for the 4th time today, I just don’t get it” the Swanson Team is here every step of the way to make it EASY, EDUCATIONAL and FUN, on a Silver Platter!

The Riddle Group Kodi and Bill Riddle
The Riddle Group at eXp Realty
About The Riddle Group

Kodi is a licensed real estate associate broker in Arizona and is currently Co-Owner for The Riddle Group Brokered by eXp Realty in Cave Creek. After earning her degree from Arizona State University in 1994, Kodi went on to become an LPGA Golf Professional. Before college, she had never played the game and she became a member with the LPGA in less than 3 years. In a male dominated industry, Kodi’s tireless energy, determination and passion to succeed quickly propelled her to achieve her goals. Using these traits, in 1999, Kodi began what has become a successful real estate career. Very early on it was obvious to her that the only way to truly protect her clients was to work full-time in this industry. After just 6 months in real estate, she left the golf industry behind to become a full-time real estate agent. As soon as possible, she earned her broker’s license as well as her e-pro designation. With 11 years of experience and education, she has become an expert in her field. Kodi, her husband and two kids now live, work & play in the Cave Creek area. They have lived there since 1999 and truly adore Cave Creek and the surrounding area.

With over 17 years of experience selling homes, my Team and I bring a knowledge of the housing market that is unmatched. As listing and buyer specialist's, we apply aggressive marketing and sales skills to get your property “SOLD” for the highest price in the shortest period of time. Remember, the National Association of Realtors says the average real estate agent in the country sells 6-10 homes PER YEAR! My team and I sold 195 homes in 2019 and our goal is to help 250 clients in 2020! I don’t mention this to impress you but to impress upon you that I MUST be doing something different to get those results! My most proud accomplishment as an agent is that over 60% of my business comes from client referrals and repeat customers. The rest is generated from pro-actively prospecting daily for Buyers and Sellers and being out in the field talking to new people. I am committed to making you a client for life!

What should you look for when interviewing a real estate agent in Scottsdale?
When you sell a house, your real estate agent becomes your business partner, financial advisor, and emotional support system. It’s crucial to partner with someone you trust, so make sure you’re looking for an agent who can answer all of your questions with confidence during the interview. During this process, you want to get to know the agent’s business and find out how well they know the area. You’re listening for things that signal experience, expertise in your community, and workload. Selling a home takes an enormous amount of work, so you need an agent who’s got a plan for prep, pricing, and marketing and who is ready to roll up their sleeves to get the job done.
Read more

A great agent makes a difference when you buy a house, too: We’ve found that the top 5% of buyer's agents on average save their clients 2.5% more on their home purchase. So, whether you’re in the market to find your dream home or sell your house at a great price, the right agent matters.

Read more
When is the right time to hire a real estate agent in Scottsdale?
The best window to contact an agent to sell your home is anywhere from three to six months in advance of your list date. When you start the search for an agent several months before hitting the market, there’s plenty of time to find the best agent, make key renovations, and market your home effectively, all of which are essential steps in selling your home for a great price. You can also hire an agent based on the best time to sell in Scottsdale to take advantage of seasonal and cyclical trends in the market. The right time to hire a real estate agent depends on the temperature of the housing market. For example, the best time to sell in Scottsdale is in May. And since it takes around 3 months to close on a home, you should list in February. We recommend that you hire a real estate agent as soon as you're thinking of selling your home. Generally speaking, that's anywhere from 3 to 6 months prior to your desired move date.
