Many Agents think their most important job is satisfying the customer. I don’t think that’s true. I believe that satisfying the customer is simply the minimum requirement for staying in business. My staff and I work constantly to improve our systems, process and services to go well beyond the standard level of “service” provided by most agents. Simply put, our objectives are to get you the most money in the least time, and with the fewest hassles. We want to provide the best service in the industry. Period. We want to make you so satisfied that you listed your home with us that you will gladly refer us to your friends.

Carrie Ellison – Buyer Specialist
Carrie obtained her real estate license in 2003. Born in New Mexico, her childhood saw many moves as part of her family’s corporate relocations. Albuquerque, Dallas, Oklahoma City, Phoenix, Cincinnati and ultimately back to Phoenix, where she graduated from high school. This gave her a unique empathy with people and the difficulties and joys of moving – whether relocating locally or out of state. Carrie lives in the north valley with her husband, Tim, who is from Pittsburgh. Her daughter, Abby, attends the University of Oklahoma.
