Liz Contreras

    Liz Contreras

    Buddy & I have been working with buyers and sellers in the Phoenix Metro and West Valley for over 15 years. We know the real estate process can be overwhelming at times. Our commitment is to help you navigate through the noise, cut to the bottom line and work together to get you there. We do this with honest and timely communication throughout the process, working to evaluate all possibilities and game plan strategies to continually work towards a solution.

    We're with you every step of the way and clients truly become friends as we go through these transactions. Don't be surprised to get a call from me months and years later just to see how things are going.

    Personally, I love working with our clients from the start of the transaction through the closing (and often beyond.) Born and raised in Arizona, I am able to share my local knowledge about the area and the housing market here. Having graduated from ASU West with a BA in Communication Studies, I have the necessary skills to keep my clients informed and negotiate on their behalf.

    Liz really went above and beyond what we were expecting from a Realtor. She spent a LOT of time with us during our limited visit from out of state, and she "held our hands" and guided the way as we maneuvered through a stressful process of relocating. We are truly grateful to have had her help.

We would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone needing a Realtor. ~ Glen & Carrie Mitchell, Surprise, AZ

    I cannot say enough about Liz she was so professional she actually felt my frustration in my personal life and all I had been through to get to this point in my life. We looked at so many homes and I felt guilty at one point because gas was expensive and she would drive me to all the homes I picked out to see. She replied several times to me, it is no issue this is my job. We had several great conversations, I felt confident and comfortable with Liz and knew she had by best interests in mind.

    After recently getting married, I had to sell my house and I had to sell it quick because my husband and I had two mortgages. From the start, Buddy and Liz were very knowledgeable with the market. They got the listing price right on, told us exactly what needed to be done to the house in order for it to sell quick and assisted in it being move in ready. The house was listed on the Friday after Memorial Day and on Monday received two contracts. I accepted an offer and closed escrow on July 3, 2014. It was unbelievable and they are always there to help you. Very friendly, knowledgeable and experts in this field. Rebecca Cutliffe - Phoenix, AZ
    You have been so wonderful to me and my boys! It is scary to buy a house as a single woman. But you guys made it fun to work through the house hunting process. Thank you for working with me on my timeline as well as within my given budget. The house you found me is perfect. Thank you for helping when I needed answers and months later when I needed more information! I am very happy to have met you, worked with you, and bought my house because of you. Laura Bonner - Buckeye, AZ
    Buddy and Liz Contreras were a great choice when we went to sell our house! They knew where to price it at and within 3 days we had over 15 offers! It was so nice to not have to worry about sitting on the old house very long! Mike and Kate Stewart - Avondale, AZ
    Working with Liz and Buddy was a great experience, they are always very helpful and honest. Buying a house is always going to be a stressful situation but I am glad that they were on our side to help us out! This is the second home that we have bought with them and from the stories that I hear from friends and family I can't imagine working with anyone else. They have the answers and they know what they are doing, and always seem to keep your best interests in mind. They didn't always tell me what I wanted to hear but they told me the truth and were very efficient. This last time I bought with them, I also sold my first home. They checked in and kept me up to date on everything that was happening in the selling process as soon as it happened. I can't thank them enough for all the help they have provided us over the years. Ashley Ryan - Surprise, AZ
    Buddy and Liz made selling our home as painless as possible. They were right on every step of the way throughout the process. They went above and beyond to keep us informed and always provided us with information as soon as they could, keeping us in the loop, which really lowered the anxieties associated with selling a home. Cody and Cynthia Salge - Avondale, AZ
    I would be very happy to give Buddy and Liz Contreras my highest. They know the market extremely well; they're responsive, and yet very patient with their clients, especially since we looked for a very long time for our dream home. They're true professionals in every sense of the word, and put their clients' interests far above their own. My husband and I appreciated their ability to advise us on a short sale since it was our first, as well as advising us on our post home inspection; and putting us in contact with a diligent financing broker. They were there to help and support us in every possible way, and 45 days later we closed our short sale and were in our dream home. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Buddy and Liz Contreras to any person who is looking to buy or sell a home, as well as seek their service in any of my future real estate transactions. Kammie Miller - Litchfield Park, AZ
    Thank You Buddy & Liz for going over and beyond in searching for a home for our family!!!

    I really want to thank Buddy and Liz Contreras for all of their work in helping us buy or new home! Having people you really trust makes the process bearable! We really appreciate you! Joanie Campos - Goodyear, AZ
    Without a doubt, we had a First Class home buying experience dealing with Buddy and Liz Contreras. We just purchased a home in Goodyear Arizona and had the pleasure of dealing with two professional real estate agents. Not being from the area, they really spent extra time with us showing us multiple homes and areas. Once we decided on our home they ensured all the details were covered and saw the transaction through to its completion. They are a great team and their service doesn't end once the deal is done. They are still available for help and consultation. Thank you both for your truly exceptional services. We are very happy. Doug and Val - Goodyear, AZ
    Buddy and Liz are just incredible. They really do their homework when it comes to finding the value of a house you want to sell or the value of a house you are looking to buy. They are always available through the process and work incredibly hard to make sure your transaction is as smooth as possible. If you are going to buy or sell a house you need Buddy and Liz to make the process smooth and easy for you. Rob and Melinda - Goodyear, AZ
    Buddy and Liz made the difficult process of finding and negotiating the purchase of a new home easy and doable. They were helpful every step of the way. I highly recommend this winning team. Steve and Cece - Litchfield Park, AZ
    Buddy and Liz definitely went above and beyond their job. They were quick, efficient, organized, and extremely helpful throughout the entire process. Their personal touch during this entire process made everything feel as if we were working with close friends. 1. Expertise-Their expertise and timeliness made things run quickly and purposefully. 2. Timely communication They have other clients but were still able to respond to my emails and phone calls in a very timely manner. 3. Care This is where I really think they went above and beyond. Their attention to detail and follow-through showed that we were not just another home buyer to them. They took the time to show they cared about how things were going and making sure we understood every step of the process. Without a doubt I will be sharing their information with friends and family. Daisy Oshiro - Surprise, AZ
    Thank you Liz and buddy. You were awesome helping us through the process of buying our house. You were very professional, ready to answers all the questions, giving us advice and assisting us with referrals. Talking to Liz was like talking to friend. Nadia - Sunnyvale, AZ
    The experience & professionalism that Buddy & Liz brought to me was the reason that my house got sold. They stayed in continual contact we me & was able to negotiate a full price offer. Excellent agents that I would highly recommend to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a home. John and Tammy Phelps - Buckeye, AZ
    They were wonderful to work with and kept us updated daily, Liz updated me on my way to work every morning. Buddy and Liz called in the evening because my husband went to school at night and would answer my husband's questions. They were a pure pleasure!!! One of my co-workers said that I made buying a home look so easy and stress free! It was all them, They were great!!!! Thank you Buddy and Liz, I appreciate you and all that you did. Jennie Ruiz - Peoria, AZ
    Buddy and Liz genuinely cared about the unique situation facing my family when I got orders to move to Florida for the Air Force. In a month my home was sold and we got a great deal on the sale. Buddy was able to explain, step by step, how to get our house sold and Liz was available night and day to give me answers and solutions (no pun intended) to any concerns and question my wife and I had. The 2 of them together are wonderful to work with when it comes time to sell a home and I am sure that same level customer service applies to trying to buy a home. I feel like I made friends more than business partners. I highly recommend them to anyone looking for a realtor in the West Valley. Robert Fanton - Florida
