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.
