Our house sold after 4 days of going on the market!! Their process was easy and hassle free. From the moment we met with Craig we knew that we had made the right choice.

From advertising awareness, to his weekly updates, and responsiveness of him and his entire staff i couldn’t ask for more. View More Info at Reach150.com

Stacey and Craig we awesome! They sold our house in 24 hours with multiple offers. We previously purchased the house with them and knew they were the only realtor we would work with. They had a very professional high tech strategy to hit the market quickly. I was pleased with the photos taken and the social media approach to selling. I could not be happier!

Kaylor Shemberger recommends Craig Akers

We interviewed Craig and his team from long distance and were impressed with how professional both he and his wife, Stacey were in discussing our listing. We decided to engage them by listing two properties for sale. At this time we are most happy with the results! Our first property sold within two weeks of the listing and everything went extremely smooth. Both Craig and Stacey were very actively involved in preparing the properties for sale and providing good solid guidance on every step of the process. They paid attention to detail and had a very good understanding of the market. We highly recommend Craig and Stacey! View More Info at Reach150.com

The Nichols recommends Craig Akers

Seller

Craig is knowledgeable about the market. We were able to sell our house with a reasonable and competitive price. The online marketing techniques that he applied might be a factor on how quickly we got an offer for the house. Our house was in the market for a very short period of time. He also provided guidance on how to handle a pretty significant appraisal issue and was able to resolve it in a timely manner. He was willing to jump in and helped us with the last minute housekeeping issue that we ran into before closing. One thing that we wished we could have during the contract period was more frequent updates. View More Info at Reach150.com

Arthur and Nancy Engstrom recommends Craig Akers

We bought our current home with Craig's help ten years ago and because of that positive experience we wanted to work with him again when we sold our rental home! The second time around we got Craig and Stacey and what a great team they are! Stacey was exceptionally helpful with the rehab of the home that was going on the market! Because of her time and expertise we were able to maximize our return on investment! Thanks to Craig and Stacey for knowledge and expertise, we recommend and would gladly use them in the future!

Athur S Consoli recommends Craig Akers

Craig did a great job by keeping us informed after each viewing and subsequent conversation with an interested buyer. This enabled us to determine what if any changes we though might be helpful. He also provided valuable insight on our responses to possible changes. Finally, He held the deal together through several offers and counter offers.

Accountant

We found the Akers team at NextHome Valley when we were looking for a second home in Phoenix as we planned to move from Michigan to Phoenix within a few years. We wanted to get a home while the prices were still low. We accomplished that very easily through Stacey Akers, who worked mostly with buyers. When we moved to Phoenix and got new jobs, our house was too far away from where we really wanted to be. It was then we started working with Craig since he works mostly with sellers. Craig put our house on the market in an area where it was notoriously difficult to sell homes. The market was still not quite up to what it is now, so we expected it to take several months (at least) to sell the home. When Craig called within the first month to tell us we had an offer, we couldn’t believe it. He had created such a professional and detailed market plan, plus priced our house just at the right price point that it made our real estate stick out. There were many homes around us that had been for sale for a much longer time and continued to be for sale even after we had completed our sale. When the buyer turned out to be challenging, Craig went the extra mile to keep us and the buyer on track and satisfied. And when I say extra mile, I mean EXTRA mile. There were several times I wanted to give up on the buyer, but Craig worked diligently with the other agent to keep the process moving along. As it turned out, we were able to close on the sale in record time. And by the way, the closing process has been the smoothest we’ve ever experienced with any other agency. We also went back to Stacey to find the perfect house in the area we wanted and now feel this will be our forever home here in the Valley. I couldn’t have asked for a better result and I will always recommend Craig and Stacey Akers – they are the best real estate team I’ve ever come across. View More Info at Reach150.com

Craig came to our home and gave us his proposal and we liked what he had to tell us. His wife Stacey did a wonderful job of designing and offering her vision for us to list and sell our home. Everything went great and our home sold in 24 days. I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone. View More Info at Reach150.com

Craig was great from the start, opening up my online portal and sending me listings and updates daily. As soon as I found properties that I liked he scheduled them immediately. I am very pleased with the services they provided, the entire process was very smooth. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a new home. View More Info at Reach150.com

Brad Townsend recommends Craig Akers

Seller

Our selling experience required us to move first and then list our home. We had our home built that included modifications to the floor plan that worked for us, but actually became objections to the potential buyers that viewed our home. After a short time, it became obvious that we needed to make some changes which included moving a wall and door, and then re-tiling. Of course the exact tile was discontinued, but Craig and Stacey were able to get an exact match in a smaller size. They worked with the contractor and made a very successful modification happen. We also replaced the carpet in the office. Craig and Stacey managed to work with the contractors and make these changes quickly and at very reasonable prices. The home was re-listed and sold very quickly. The amount of work needed to get the house in the best saleable condition was tedious, but Craig and Stacey came through with flying colors. This was all done while we were living on the other side of the country. We were very satisfied and appreciative of the great service we received from Team Akers. View More Info at Reach150.com

RVM recommends Craig Akers

Relocation Buyer

After relocating from the East coast to Phoenix AZ we were in great need of a real estate professional to help us navigate the local market. We initially came in contact with Craig Akers purely by chance as he was the listing broker of a property we decided to view.

After explaining our needs to Craig he quickly set us up with an automated MLS viewing and notification system based on the fundamental home search criteria we provided.

From that point on, and without reservation, we decided that Craig was the broker for us. He was incredibly courteous, professional, and most importantly focused on getting us the home that we wanted, versus just putting us into a property for the sake of getting a close.

He was the consummate professional from the beginning, guiding us through every step of the process, but not in an over-bearing way, but clearly as someone who had a vested interest in making our home search process as friendly and informative as possible.

In doing so, Craig was also sure to nudge us if we needed nudging in order to make sure we didn't miss opportunities as they came to market. Craig exemplified what you would expect and need in a broker; someone who listens to your needs and focuses accordingly, but also someone who will tell you when you are about to make a mistake and gets you back on-track to ensure you meet your real estage goals.

Craig was responsive to all of our requests for home showings. He showed up on-time and always worked to ensure he could accommodate our schedule 7 days a week. In short, I have recommended Craig Akers of NextHome Valleywide (formerly Omni Real Estate Solutions) to my family and friends for all of their real estate needs.

If you are looking for an experienced, honest, and straight forward real estate broker who's primary goal will be to ensure you get the property of your dreams, than please don't hesitate to contact Craig and Stacey Akers - you won't be disappointed. View More Info at Reach150.com

CC recommends Craig Akers

Seller

In a very down market we tried two other agents to help sell out home. They did the minimum one could do and the house did not sell. The Akers took the time to understand the positives and perceived negatives about hour home and then devised a plan of action to overcome the perceived negatives. The house sold quickly. They kept us well informed throughout the process. Guided us well. Gave excellent advice. I was very impressed with their creativity and their effort. They truly went above and beyond anything we had experienced in other home sale experiences. I HIGHLY recommend them. View More Info at Reach150.com

Buyer

My wife and I were getting ready to relocate from VA to Arizona and we contacted Craig & Stacey for assistance. Not only were they professional and very knowledgeable about the markets here - but more importantly they truly LISTENED to what we wanted in a home and quickly responded with a list of very desirable properties within our budget.

With their assist we found our dream home on a Thursday evening, they verified it was definitely what we were looking for on Friday morning. Saturday morning my wife flew out to view this house (as well as other properties in the area & price range). Sunday we put in the bid - as did MANY others. Monday at 2:00 the homeowners closed the bidding.

Thanks to Craig's due diligence and negotiation skills we got the home we wanted. 30 days later - we moved in. They definitely made the entire process of looking for and more importantly finding and purchasing a home an extremely positive experience.

We highly recommend Craig & Stacey for all your Real Estate needs. Why? Very simply - they truly care and will deliver.

Thank you Craig & Stacey! View More Info at Reach150.com

Robert M. recommends Craig Akers

Buyer

I didn't get an opportunity to express this in person during our final walk-through on Monday as we were pre-occupied, so I will take this opportunity to say it here: We crossed paths arbitrarily based on one of the first properties we viewed in Tempe with you as the listing agent. At that point, without recommendation and with some reservations, we decided to keep you as our primary broker as we felt you deserved the opportunity given your time to show us the initial property we inquired about. Fast forward - and after a few trials and tribulations here and there - we have finally closed on a property that we believe our family will grow to enjoy for the next several years [your input was paramount in this decision]. Along the way there were some recommendations we disagreed with, but in the end your guidance and direction was largely on point and we appreciated them throughout the process. You have a somewhat passive East-Coast persona about you that kind of won me over in the end. Make recommendations, listen to feedback, provide constructive criticism, argue when arguing was right, and straight up tell the truth when you heard our rationale on any given property [thow in f-bombs here and there as needed]. Your earned my respect in that regard. In summary, THANK YOU CRAIG - for guiding us along the way and both tolerating and adjusting to our indecision in the process. I don't think we could have been satisfied with any other broker. You have our endorsement 1,000% for any future clients, and you will have an exclusive on our listing, whether its one year or 10 years from now. THANK YOU CRAIG FOR HELPING US FIND A HOME FOR OUR FAMILY. I hope to one day cross paths with you and your wife, either planned or unplanned, so we can share a drink and enjoy each others company.

As you know we had two other realtors list our 6th Street home. Neither of them produced any offers and between the two of them the total number of buyer showings was somewhere less than half of what you produced. I had not previously had a good experience with a realtor despite having used a few different realtors to purchase and sell several homes in the Valley. Thank you. You were professional, effective and efficient. I thoroughly enjoyed working with both of you. You have great energy, enthusiasm and work ethic. Wishing you the very best life has to offer.
