What are the Top Agents?

To curate this list of the Valley’s top residential real estate agents, we surveyed 25,000 PHOENIX magazine subscribers for their opinions on agents who helped them buy or sell a home – or both – over the past 20 years. Grading the agents in five different practice areas, from closing skills to design knowledge, the respondents also offered written testimonials on the agents in question, many of which are included below. PHOENIX editors evaluated the surveys, added our own candidates to fully represent the geographic and cultural sweep of the Valley, and created a final list. To help you find the right agent, we’ve included the neighborhoods where the agents respectively tend to specialize, but these are only examples. Most agents will work anywhere in the Valley.

What are the Top Producers?

Teams of two agents $15 - $25 million Over $25 million
