The Market Always Knows The Price

In good markets and bad, the market always knows the price. It always has, it always will. While the big talk in the local real estate industry continues to talk about “low inventory” and high demand, there are other people out there waiting for the big crash… I wish I had a shiny crystal ball to say exactly what the future holds for us, but I don’t. One thing that […]

Are Homes Selling During the COVID19 Shut Down?

Many people are wondering the same thing. “Are homes selling during the COVID19 chaos?” My answer is yes. In fact, many are still selling very quickly. Three very recent listings of ours show that there is a real need and a demand for housing. List date 4/23 – Under contract in one day (Home in Las Sendas) List date 4/29 – Under contract in two days, offer was day 1. […]

Should Buyer Do A Pre-Closing Walkthrough?

Should a home buyer do a pre-closing walkthrough prior to purchasing a home? We get that question from time to time. My answer is always the same. “Yes. I believe you should do a walkthrough of your home before closing.” We see people say Buyer walkthrough, walk through and Buyer walk thru… No matter how you spell it, the answer is still the same. Just do it. Our current residential […]

Market Watch While Staying HOME During COVID-19

Staying Home. For many of us, it has a different meaning than it did in the past. Never before have we, as a nation, been asked to stay home in the way that we are staying home right now. With uncertainty in the local, state, national and world economies, many people are breaking out their crystal balls to tell us exactly where the real estate market is heading. For some, […]

Read The Kind Words Of Our Clients

  • I found Nick in an entirely unplanned and fortuitous way -- an internet search. As a home seller living in another state, I needed to rely on Nick and his team for support from afar. They did not disappoint! Honest, clear communication, local expertise. The process was smooth and quick. I would  highly recommend him to anyone. Michelle B
  • Lots of support and great patience. We were very satisfied, since we had already moved out of state and Nick and Colleen just kept at it. Arnold Maltz, Tempe
  • Nick is an outstanding realtor, and someone to put your trust in. He and Colleen helped us buy our first home. and they were reliable through the entire process. You won’t find a better team! Dayton S, Maricopa
  • From our first meeting to closing Nick and Coleen were on top of every aspect of the sale of our home. Always looking for potential issues and advising us to maximize profits. Thank you!! Ed Guzek, Sun Lakes
  • Both the buying and selling experience with Nick was very relaxed and at the same time professional. Nick told me what his plan was and then executed the plan in quick order. Very satisfied. Daniel Dobbin, Phoenix
  • Nick and Colleen,
    Just a quick note to let you know I’m back in Richmond, and to thank you for all your hard work through the process.
    The transit from Phoenix to Richmond was speedy if uneventful, besting my prior record by a half-day – not bad for an underpowered U-Haul with the aerodynamics of a brick… I resisted the impulse to take selfies in ‘Toad Suck, Arkansas’ and the ‘Big Skin Bayou’ in Tennessee (sadly, I’m not making these up…). I arrived in town on Wednesday evening, unpacking the vehicle yesterday.
    I’d be remiss if I didn’t thank you both for your exceptional counsel throughout the sale’s process. As you know, while Pat and I have acquired two homes over the years, this was our first crack at actually selling one. Your guidance and support was invaluable. Knowing that you had us covered on the sales-front allowed us to focus on the logistics of moving our household goods cross-country – no small thing in itself. Too, your facilitation of the donations to Goodwill (or as I liked to call it, “Moving Mount Charity”…) was a peerless success – a win for the community (and my lower back).
    In your last voicemail, Nick, you mentioned our “reasonableness”. I would say the same of you, adding “expertise”, “initiative”, and “collaboration”. Quite simply, you could not have made this experience any more pleasant or successful (two terms I wouldn’t necessarily have expected to use when describing a home-sale on the front-end of this process…). Please share our thanks with your entire team for a job well done.
    Did I mention how happy I am that I moved last weekend, versus this Saturday and 117 degrees?!
    Thanks again, and have a great summer.
    Best regards,
    Sean and Patricia
    Glen Allen, Virginia
  • Nick and Lori were the definition of “professional.” They dotted all the “i’s” and crossed all the “t’s.” They were available to us at any time. Their experience in the real estate world was evident. Chuck, Phoenix
  • Nick, Colleen and their entire team are knowledgeable, responsive and effective. They handled everything with my AZ rental property sale – prep, repairs, marketing, negotiations. Everything was effortless and professional. Bob Fink, Tempe
  • As a first time home buyer I was nervous to go through the rigor of home buying, but thankfully the Nick Bastian team made the process easy. They were thorough and gracious throughout the process! Chris Kelly, Phoenix
  • We were referred to Nick and he and his Team did an outstanding job in marketing and selling our Tempe Condo! Thank you so very much. Bryant, Tempe
  • The Nick Bastian Team helped us purchase 4 homes in the last 2 1/2 years. They are professional, knowledgeable, and great to work with! House closings have gone smoothly. I definitely recommend!! Debbe, Tempe
  • My husband and I bought our Tempe town home when our son was an ASU student in 2003. Over the years we enjoyed renting to students, but it got a little too hard being absentee landlords. We got a postcard from Nick Bastian, and I decided to give him a call. Nick made the process of selling easy. He’s very hands on. And when he discovered our tenants had covered the skylights, he even climbed up and removed the covering himself. We are happily no longer landlords, and Nick Bastian was there to help every step of the way. I recommend Nick and his team without reservation. Diana Shaw, Santa Clarita, California
  • Contacted Nick from California and had a great experience working with him and his team. He was very responsive and helpful, even referred lenders, contractors, underwriters. Highly recommend! Kyle T., Tempe
  • I was very glad we were able to have a realtor like Nick. He helped us understand everything going on and walked us through the process of selling our home step-by-step. I really had the feeling that Nick and his team were looking out for our best interest. Always prompt in their communications.  From beginning to end they did an amazing job! Thank you for a very positive experience. Paul K. Tempe, AZ
  • Working with Nick and his team was great. I live in San Diego and owned a second home in Tempe, AZ that I needed to sell. Nick set me up with a great contractor, listed the home, brought offers in over the asking price and wrapped up the deal. I didn’t have to go to AZ once! He gave me a great overview of the market before listing the property and the price he steered me towards was right on the money. I highly recommend Nick and his Team. –Sujantra McKeever, San Diego, CA Sujantra McKeever, Temple
  • Many thanks to you and Colleen for all your work in selling our Tempe house. We were hoping to sell the house in a few months time, for enough money to cover our expenses, and without making too many trips to Arizona to do it. Success on all counts! Thanks so much for your patience with our renters and for scheduling the work that needed to be done.  All of that really kept our stress level low. We’re happy to recommend you to anyone needing a reference. Best to you both, Deb and Tony, San Jose, CA
  • Team NB – You guys are awesome! Thank you so much for all of your help! Jon and Jessica, Chandler AZ
  • Thank you for the great job with our new home. You were always there to answer the call and many times the voice of reason. Your marketing strategies and your office staff were top notch. You also jumped through hoops to find us a rental property during our transition period and worked through a difficult negotiation on the home we finally purchased. It was a tough year, but you stuck by us to the end. We would highly recommend you to anyone selling or purchasing a home. Thanks again for all your efforts. Dalton Kesley, Tempe, AZ
