Priceless Advice

Chris and I have known Ernie and Kathy Montoya for several years.  They were recommended to us five years ago when we were looking for a house in the Phoenix market.  They listened to what we were looking for and found us a beautiful old English Tudor style home in a desirable historic district at a good price.  We loved the house and added to its value.  Unfortunately we had to sell it, but our first choice to help was the Montoyas.  They made a great recommendation on the sales price and provided expert guidance throughout the process.  Our home sold within three days on the market for very close to the asking price.  The inspection and closing process was easy and uneventful.  Their advice was priceless.  We highly recommend Ernie and Kathy to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a home in the Phoenix area.  Their knowledge and skill is invaluable.

Listens to Your Wants/Needs

 Ernie listens to the client and asks pertinent questions.  Once he has zeroed in on exactly what the client is looking for, he shows only the homes that fit the bill so he doesn't waste your time or his.  Upon showing the homes he soon learns what you want the home to feel like and what features you are looking for.  Ernie has been in Phoenix for over 25 years and he really knows the different neighborhoods and makes great recommendations.  He knows the market and helps make an educated suggestion for the amount to offer.  Ernie keeps track of all the paperwork and has a notebook for the client about thier purchase.  This notebook has been very valuable once the home is purchased.  He knows efficient mortgage people.

My husband, my mother and myself have all bought homes and sold one home with Ernie.  He did a fabulous job each timeYou will have a great experience with Ernie.

“First, want to thank Ernie for all his hard work selling our home.  Second, I would like to recommend him for all of your Real Estate needs.  Ernie was more than our agent, he has become a close, personal friend.  This is a testament to his personal touch and the time and effort he took to successfully sell our home.  We had tried to sell our home before and we were only able to do so after the second time and Ernie's patience and persistence.  You will be very pleased with his work.”

Future Retirement Property

Top qualities:  Great Results, Personable Expert                                 

“I was lucky enough to have Ernie and Kathy referred to me by a friend when I was starting to look at a future retirement property in the Phoenix area.  I had a very quick chat with Ernie while I was in Phoenix for a charity golf tournament.  I had been considering different spots as a vacation home so asked him what options would be available to me considering my budget and what I was looking for.   He was very knowledgeable with the Phoenix real estate market and assured me that there were condos on the market that would fit within my budget and would also provide the extra things I was looking for such as size, HOA dues, attached garage, nice view, and nearby golf courses. 

Right away, I started getting information on listings that were already available plus any new ones that just hit the market.   What impressed me most about Ernie was the amount of time he devoted to me when I was in town, which was usually 1 weekend a month.  We would both do a lot of research before I arrived so that once I was in town and we started viewing properties, there was a great balance between items that were on my “must-have” list with things that were a “nice to have” while always staying within my budget.  Upfront, Ernie made it clear that he wanted me to be happy with my choice so there was never any pressure from him to make a decision.  If we pulled into a condominium complex that I did not think was the right location, there was no problem saying “no need to look – what’s next on the list?”  Also, it made no difference how much I was willing to spend $50K, $100K, or $1MM, the service provided was top-notch and I was treated as if I was buying a mansion.

When it came time for me to make a decision, I was between 2 different properties and really struggled with the decision as one was nice and well within my budget while the other was great and would be a bit of a stretch.  Ernie called Kathy and she prepared both offers knowing that one of them would be a waste of time, but that made no difference, the decision was in my control and while he provided advice, did not try and sway me in one direction or the other. 

I went with the “great” option and could not have been happier. When it came time to pick up the keys, Ernie and Kathy came by with a nice welcoming gift and also provided so many recommendations on furniture stores, electricians, flooring work, pest control, and a local handyman, none of which have disappointed.  Whenever I am in town, we usually get together to catch up and I continue to recommend him to all of my friends who are thinking about Phoenix real estate.  In fact, I have started to think about upgrading and would not dream of working with anyone except Ernie and Kathy.” 



Dear Ernie and Kathy:
Thank you for helping us sell our home in Scottsdale after our relocation to California.  It was nice to have realtors we could trust with a long distance transaction.  We appreciated your efforts to keep us informed of walk-thru traffic and feedback from potential buyers.  We also appreciated your willingness to work with us on our pricing strategies.  The expertise you shared with us helped us complete a smooth home sale.



We wanted to thank you for all you did for us in our move here from CAlifornia.  While we know that as a Realtor your job is to sell homes, we found your level of service to be "Over The Top".  While relocating is one of the most stressful times in a person's life, your attention to all the details, big and small, made our move here seamless.  The fact that you provided this kind of service during a time when the real estate market was in a "frenzied state" makes it all that much more amazing.  I know after looking at 35 houses you must have thought I was going to be impossible to please, but your system of having me tell you the pros and cons of each house we looked at, led us to buying what we describe to our friends as our "dream house".

We would highly recommend you to anyone contemplating a move either to or from this area.  You are what we would describe as a caring Professional.

Multiple Transactions

 Dear Kathy and Ernie:

This morning I was sitting on my patio overlooking South Mountain and thinking how lucky I am to have you two who found me this lovely house which is also big enough for my daughter Carol and her husband Rick. By the way Heather also flew in from LA to spend the weekend with us. I was also fortunate to have you sell my house in Peoria a few years ago so that I could move closer to my family in the Awatukee area and you found me a house there.
Just thought that you and Kathy should have an "at a boy" for being so conscientious and aware of my needs when I needed you.

Thank you sincerely,

First Home Buying

You and Kathy were amazingly helpful during this entire process of buying my first home; I cannot thank you enough for your help and advice! The home that you helped me find is absolutely stunning and I love it! I will definitely recommend you to anyone I know that is looking to buy or sell their home. You guys are absolutely amazing! Thank you both again for all of the help you gave during this process!



First Time Buyer

Hi Ernie:

I just want to thank you again for the outstanding job you did in helping me not only find a house I had always envisioned myself living in!  I am especially impressed with the way you not only listened to what my likes and dislikes were, but the way you were able to put it all together in only 3 attempts.

Ernie, there's really way to much to mention, your ability to locate the right house, your knowledge of the area and how it would affect my commute to work, the guidance you provided to me as a first time buyer so I wouldn't get caught in the "traps" that so often befall first time buyers, and the way you were there to assist in the final transactions, the appraisal, the inspection and the all important closing.  Even after the sale you were there to lend a hand.  You were never more than a phone call away and the Welcome Basket was a much appreciated touch.  You not only are a great real estate agent, but you became a good friend.  You and your family will always be welcome in my home.

I can't thank you enough...

Al Gonzales
