Dear Ted & Ann,

In closing of my house purchase I just wanted to drop you a line in regards to the service I received through your company. I have never had the pleasure of dealing with 2 more qualified and personable individuals than Ann and yourself. My experience was a bit nerve racking to say the least until I contacted Arizona Best Properties and started our relationship together.

From the start to the finish you kept me in the loop and supplied me with every bit of information I needed to make smart and proper decisions, I felt comfortable through out the process of buying property being over 2000 miles away. The houses you suggested fit exactly what I was looking for, the paperwork was prompt, accurate, and you walked me through every step of every document along the way. Your knowledge of the current market was impeccable and you delivered nothing short of exemplary service.

I would have no hesitation in dealing with you in the future and would highly recommend your services to anyone looking at purchasing homes in the Phoenix area. If there is anything I can do to repay the service you provided me please let me do so

You make a wonderful team and I imagine that is why you are so successful in your chosen careers. You treated me like a friend, not a customer and I value that a great deal.

All the Best in the future

Dear Ann and Ted;

We just wanted to say thank you for everything!  You have both been so great to work with every step of the way in helping us find and purchase our new home. 

When we first contacted you over two years ago we were not ready to buy a home but you took the time to show us homes and neighborhoods so we could get a feel for the area.  We had contacted a few other agents via e-mail, but they all told us to “call when you are ready to buy”.  Being from New York we were quite apprehensive about making a decision about where to buy, but you were so very helpful in providing all the information we needed.  You were always available either by phone or e-mail. 

We appreciate all the work you did for us in obtaining financing at such a great rate.  It was pretty rough going for a few weeks but you made it happen! 

Thank you again for all the time you spent with us and we will definitely recommend you to any of our friends and family who might be looking to move to Arizona.

Ann and Ted Stevens,

I would like to thank you both for all of your hard work in getting us in to
our new home. I don’t think that there are many Realtors or people for that
matter that would work as hard as you both did to make someone else’s dream
come true. You now have a client for life and can expect many referrals from
us in the future. Thank you both very much!

Awsome artwork! Thank you so much. We have just the spot for it (as if you didn’t know). We love it, and are excited to show it off to our family coming to visit for the holidays. We have been busy, and haven’t even explored the area yet. Heard there is some nice hiking at camelback mountain we are dying to try. Love it here, and hope you add us to your list of very satisfied clients. Still planning on getting together for a bbq when it warms up again. 80 degrees for Christmas, unbelievable. Thanks again and please write back. We have yet to convince our family to move down, but rest assured that if they do, we will hook them up with the two of you. Hope all is well -Merry Christmas. Kory, Val, and Ashley

Dear Ann and Ted,

Needing to sell our house made us nervous, but you changed that.  You treated us respectfully and patiently explained every step along the way, greatly reducing our stress.  Your caring and friendly attitude made us feel that we were more than just another client.

You told us the truth, not just what we wanted to hear, and you did what you said you would do.  You also said you wouldn’t abandon us during the process and you didn’t.  A foreclosure would have ruined our otherwise good credit and we really don’t know how to thank you for getting us off that hook.

You’re great!!!

Happy holidays to you too!  How lucky I am to have
found you.  We are SO looking forward to our move.

I am writing you regarding the professionalism and dedication of Ted and Ann Stevens.

They were my realtors. My husband and I moved to Arizona in search of beginning a new life together. We are from California and wanted to purchase a home but with bad credit it was absolutely impossible to do so in California. When we moved out here some of our friends got us in touch with Ted and Ann. When we first met them we thought there was no way we would, anytime soon, be getting the keys to our first home. Ted and Ann worked so diligently for this to happen and on February 28th it did.


Ted and Ann are two of the most hard-working, yet friendly, and professional
people I have met. They truly love their job and through their work you can
tell. Everything they said they would do, they did.  I want to let anyone with bad credit and poor payment histories know that through Ted and Ann it is possible to live the American dream of owning your own home. It was an absolute pleasure working with these two wonderful people.
Thank you,

Ted and Ann,

We can’t thank you enough for your guidance, patience and the hard work that went into selling our house.

You were honest from the beginning about the little fix-ups we needed to do to get a fair price in today’s market.

We’ll miss Arizona, but when we come back you’ll be the first ones we call to get us a house.

Best wishes,

Roger and Beth


Dear Stevens,

I came to Arizona just to visit a friend of mine not really thinking about buying a home so quickly.  Even though I was looking into moving to Arizona, I knew in the back of my mind that when the time came it would be so stressful.   I had no idea that I would be in a home of this size.  The Stevens made all of my home buying dreams come true and the process went so smoothly.  This is my first home and it’s a gold mine.  I truly believe that I will be here for a very long time.  Let the Stevens take care of you, they make home buying dreams come true.  Thank you Ted and Ann.



Dear Ted and Ann,

Thank you for finding the home of our dreams! Being first time home buyers, there was a lot of uncertainty and questions. During the entire process you’ve continually proved our trust and faith in your services to be valid. By always being available to answer our questions, you’ve greatly decreased our stress level. Even if we had to leave a message, you’ve never failed to call back within an hour. That alone is truly amazing!

We are very impressed with your resources and how everything fell into place seamlessly. Your hard work behind the scenes allowed us to enjoy the process with minimal worries. We did not expect that. Thank you for the pleasant surprise.

We truly appreciate your expectation for excellence with your business associates. When we asked you to recommend an insurance carrier for our home,we were surprised (again) to find out that their work and customer service matched your level of world class service! We could not be any happier. You are highly recommended to all our friends and family, just as you were recommended to us. Good things should shared and praise should be given when deserved. You’re both deserving.

Dear Ted and Ann,

I just want to take a moment to thank you for your professionalism not only in assisting us in locating and buying our  Arizona property but by assisting us as we found we needed to rent it asap. Your attention to detail and personalized service from first contact to now has been amazing. We have been able to count on you in every facet of our Arizona real estate needs as we have tried to manage our Arizona property from Alaska.Your wealth of knowledge and resources have proven to be invaluable. We can rest assured that you will respond immediately to any problem we may have as you have proven this time and again. Thanks again for being incredibly accessible,dependable and accountable.

Hello Ann,

I’m so sorry about the delayed response, but I did want to write and thank you for all that you did for me.  We had quite the roller-coaster didn’t we??? :-) But all in all I really do appreciate all the hard work you and your husband did for me.  I would’ve given up on the house a long time ago, but through your help and persistance I kept working at it. An now I have a beautiful home that I absoutely love and am so grateful for.  Thank you for your patience and for talking me through and educating me in my first home purchase.

Dear Prospective Home Buyer;

If you are reading this, you probably have already come a long way in one of the most important decisions you can make in regard to your potential home purchase:  the selection of your realtor.  Hopefully, this reference letter will cement the Stevens Group as your representative.

Ted and Ann Stevens welcomed us to the South Valley like long lost friends before we even looked at a single property.  They took the time to get to know us and our objectives, but even more importantly, they took the time to let us get to know them and their values and views on the local real estate market.  This process gave us a high degree of confidence in the properties they selected to show us as well as in their opinions of the properties.

Given that we are a group of four Canadians purchasing their first vacation/investment property, Ted and Ann were faced with a few stops and starts in our buying cycle, but they faced these missteps with humor and understanding.  This allowed us the time and comfort we needed to finally close on a purchase. 

This is the period where we really came to appreciate what Ted and Ann were all about.  They didn’t just act as our representative to complete the sale (never to be heard from again).  They acted as our representative as an absentee owner.  They were there to recommend their pool guy and house cleaners.  They were there to open the house for the carpet cleaners and repairmen.  Together, they enabled us to purchase a house from 1,500 miles away and get it ready for occupancy without having to be onsite and considered that to be part of the service they offered.   

Through the purchase of our house in Queen Creek, we not only gained a wonderful property, we gained wonderful friends.  Ted and Ann will do a good job for you, and will be as involved in the process as you need them to be.  Good luck with your purchase and enjoy your new home.

To whom it may concern


I am from Canada and was purchasing a house via phone conversations and by emails. Choosing Ted & Ann (Prestige Platinum Realty) was one of the better choices that I have ever made. Ted and Ann worked with my wife & myself to find out what we wanted and then only showed us property that fell within these guidelines. Ted tirelessly led us thru the process by long distance. Once our choice was made Ted & Ann inspected the place themselves before we went any further. Once we were told the house & property looked good we put together a suitable offer and Ted worked with us right thru the process until a deal was signed. Thanks to Ted & Ann we had all our ducks in order and once we flew down & inspected the house ourselves we were able to seal the deal. Ted then took time out to help us set up bank accounts at a local bank then set us up with the home insurance company. Buying a house by long distance is a very trying & stressful proposition. Due to all the work and effort Ted & Ann put in to this sale everything went smoothly.



Thank you
