What we have done for ourselves alone dies with us; what we have done for others remains and is immortal.  Albert Pike

My son was a first-time home buyer and we didn’t even know where to start. We were afraid about getting a realtor who wasn’t looking out for our best interests. I decided to ask a friend who can help us to find a home and he recommended Mike Rizzo and I gave him a call. He was on top of it in searching for a home for us.  He looked for exactly what we wanted and found some great results.  Michael has knowledgeable in the specific area where we were looking to purchase. It was really, really pleasant. Within a couple of months, we bought the home that we wanted. He took care of everything, yet kept us informed.  I thank God for placing Michael into our lives! We are actually great friends now and forever. We would have never found our home without him.  Beatrice L. & Pete A.

I cannot say enough good things about Mike Rizzo.  From the moment we met him he has not stopped working on our behalf.  He helped us locate and secure a wonderful home and walked with us every step of the way.  You cannot go wrong with a realtor like Mike.  HE’S FANTASTIC!!!!  Pastor Matt Aviles

Ken and I wanted to thank you for all your help through the process of buying our winter condo.  Buying from long distance, here in Alaska, we had no idea what to do.  We would have been at a loss without all your guidance, and answering every question asked.  When we start looking for an investment property, we will surely be coming to you.  I can’t thank you enough for all that you have done.  You went above and beyond to help us and we want you to know how much we appreciate it.  Thanks again..Sigrid and Ken Bulloch

We are so pleased that you were referred to us. Your professionalism, attitude, and overall pleasant demeanor took so much stress away from us as we searched for what would become our new home in a so very different part of the country. Your knowledge, recommendations and quite frankly your suggestions and outside information regarding setting up new utilities and local help that we might need made it so much easier. Your promptness in responding to questions and extra followup, emails, and telphone calls made all go so very smoothly all the way through the inspections to a successful closing. A most sincere thanks from Richard and me… We won’t hesitate to “pay it forward” and refer your services to one and all! Richard and Patricia

If you need a relator to get the job done right call Mike Rizzo . Rather you need to buy ,or sell, your home call Mike Rizzo. He has not only sold our home for us, he also was our buying agent. Mike has found us a beautiful short sale home, and it closed in a short time. We were really satisfied with Mike’s performance.

I have been associated with Mike for many years. When a difficult situation arose trying to sell my house as a FSBO, I called Mike and he guided my family through the complexities of rapidly falling home prices, lease-purchase transactions, and ultimately the successful sale of my Historic Phoenix Residence. I quickly learned I couldn’t do it myself. Mike is knowledgeable, prompt, accurate, steady, and unflappable. These attributes serve him and his clients well; particularly in the present realty market environment. I would like to thank Mike for the years of service to my family and for the expertise he applied to our situation. Realty truly is his full-time job.

I have known Mike Rizzo for more than five years and he has helped me in the purchase of four investment properties in Phoenix and most recently with the short sale of two properties one located in the Phoenix and another located in Southern Arizona. Mike has always gone above and beyond the call of duty.

Several years ago when I was looking to invest in the Phoenix housing market, Mike helped me find the perfect homes that passed my “cute test” and he spent hours picking me up at the airport, driving me around, showing me properties and helping me every step of the way through the closing process.

Recently due to a change in my financial situation, I once again turned to Mike to help me find a solution. I thought that foreclosure was the only option, however, Mike with his vast knowledge and experience in handling short sales was able to step in, submit all of the necessary paperwork to the bank, effectively deal with the bank negotiator, find purchasers for my two properties and hold my hand through the entire short sale process. Although one of the properties was located in a market outside of the Phoenix area, I could immediately tell that my local realtor who had the listing did not have the expertise that Mike had in the short sale environment. I knew that without Mike’s help the short sale would have never occurred. I begged Mike to get involved and help me which of course he agreed to do. With Mike’s guidance the sale successfully closed and I avoided a foreclosure on my credit report.

In the past fifteen years I have worked with many realtors in many different markets and I can honestly say that Mike’s knowledge and professionalism is a notch above. Recently my mother in North Carolina was trying to buy a property being sold in a short sale and of course I called Mike to ask for his advice which he of course willingly gave. My only complaint if I had to have one is that Mike could not be my “national” realtor and help me in every geographical area that I might need his assistance!

I wanted to take the time to thank you for all the hard and efforts on my behalf. It was a pleasure to meet you and work with a true professional. I truly appreciate your research in finding me the perfect condo in Arizona. You seemed very well prepared for my arrival with several different properties for me to tour.

Working with you has made the search and purchase very easy and simple. Thank you also for assisting me in the closing. I had thought this process would have been much more difficult but you handled all of the aspects of this transaction very efficiently and quickly.

In the future I would like to refer you to my friends and family who are interested in buying or selling real estate.

After almost a year of trying to buy our first home, we happened across Mike and it was the best thing that could have happened. He was very knowledgeable and found us EXACTLY what we were looking for the first time out. He fought for us and got us a better price than we could have hoped for. We moved in 6 weeks later!

Thank you Mike, you are the best!!
