Mary Jo Santistevan and her Group, including her spouse Mike, did a fantastic and professional job of selling our home in Ahwatukee. My husband and I interviewed three different realty companies and by far, Mary Jo and her Group came back to us with an impressive selling plan, complete with comps, timelines, strategy, photography, staging and a broker's open house plan. Mary Jo is a professional in all aspects of her job and it truly feels like she works 24/7. She has an attention to detail like no other Realtor we've ever experienced and she knows this market, especially Ahwatukee, because she lives here! I would recommend Mary Jo and The Santistevan Group to anyone wanting to sell their house and know that you are getting honest feedback during the process. Whether you are an out-of-state buyer or an Arizona seller, Mary Jo will provide the best service for your commission dollar.

Patricia [Hohmann] helped us handle our relocation from CA to AZ and we could not have asked for a better experience. It was like dealing with a trusted family friend – she listened to everything we wanted in a home and even picked up on things we didn’t know we wanted. She was mindful of neighborhoods, school districts, and drove us around everywhere, even showing us the best pizza joint in town! Patricia is extremely knowledgeable about the process too, which was helpful as we were definitely not.  We are so happy with the home she found for us and would refer her to anyone.

"Shanna [Roeske] is dedicated, kind, and has such a great work ethic. She is willing to go above and beyond for her clients."
– Josh & Kathleen F.
Ceejay [Cesiel] is phenomenal! I had some very last minute issues with my lender that could have significantly delayed closing. Ceejay supported me the entire time and made me feel like standing up for my values and opinion was more important than her selling me a house. When the seller was slow with communication, she was relentless in helping me get answers and ensured I was well taken care of. She has forever earned my trust.

Mary Jo is an absolute “Rockstar.” Her professionalism and commitment to excellence in customer service are second to none. After reading Mary Jo’s phenomenal reviews I reached out to her from out of state because I was looking for an agent to represent us for the sale of our home in AZ. From the moment I first spoke with Mary Jo, she has been welcoming, knowledgeable, willing to answer questions and highly responsive. I was even more impressed when I met her. She has excellent expertise and offers top-notch service. Each interaction was confirmation that we could trust in her expertise and that we were in great hands that would guide us through the successful sale of our home. Her extended team is also dedicated to delivering exceptional customer service. Look no further as you will always be in the best hands with Mary Jo, a Realtor you can trust and a beautiful person that goes the extra mile for you!

We recently purchased a home in Mesa, Arizona, remotely from St. Charles, Missouri. A real estate agent in Missouri connected us to Mary Jo out in Arizona. The last house we purchased was almost 26 years ago and this time, we were relying completely on an agent 1,400-plus miles away. Needless to say, we were very anxious at first. However, Mary Jo went above and beyond so many times. She did numerous FaceTime walkthroughs with us and provided us with honest opinions and insights. She also helped us get hooked up with all the other necessary people for closing, the title company, flooring, etc. She was on top of every single thing we asked of her and we are so grateful to have been connected to her. The entire process could not have gone any smoother, even if we had been there in person. We are extremely grateful for Mary Jo's professionalism and her super-fast response time every time we reached out to her. She is definitely an A+ Realtor and without any hesitations at all, we would highly recommend her. Our new home in Mesa is great!

My wife and I moved to AZ. from Nebraska and my nephew recommended Mary Jo and Mike Santistevan to us prior to the move. We came months in advance of the move and they showed us several home in locations that would fit our requirements. Unfortunately, we did not purchase a home during our visit, but Mary Jo and Mike learned so much about us that they created a portal for us to see current and all new listings that fit our criteria on a personal level. As we found homes we were interested in they worked as a team to provide us with FaceTime viewing of the home and a immediate follow-up call to discuss any items which may have been a concern for us not having the ability to see it in person. I could go on but to make a long story short, we found the perfect home and are now living a "dream life" in sunny Maricopa, AZ. I would and will highly recommend this team of dedicated, innovative, integrity driven individuals. They truly have all the abilities and skills of a team that others would do well to emulate.

Mary Jo is awesome! There is no better way to describe her and her team. I am convinced she is the best real estate agent in the valley. She is hard working, dedicated and genuine, plus very very knowledgeable. It was my mine and my wife's first time selling/buying a home at the same time. Mary Jo was extremely helpful. She was there to give us advice or guidance when we needed it and was very accommodating. She was available anytime we needed her and she always made sure that we had everything we needed. She made us feel like she really had our best interest at heart and we always knew she was working hard for us. She knew the market, understood all the ends and outs, and always pointed us in the right direction. It is stressful buying and selling a home, but we were able to take comfort in the fact that we had a great agent. I could not recommend Mary Jo enough, she is an amazing real estate agent and a great person. Thank you Mary Jo for helping us find our forever home!

I met Mary Jo while looking for a condo to rent. She was very attentive and thorough as she assisted me in my search. I was able to find a beautiful place which suited my needs perfectly. She was there from start to finish. After 2 years of renting, I decided to buy a home. I called on Mary Jo once again. Mary Jo spent countless hours on the phone and driving about the city to help me find the home of my dreams. I did and couldn't be happier! Our relationship continues as a result and I often refer her to friends and family when they looking for a home. Mary Jo is a busy gal but in my search for a home, I always felt as if I was the only client she was working with. Mary Jo is an expert in her field and I feel lucky that our paths have crossed. There are many real estate agents in this city, but finding the right one can be a challenge. Mary Jo Santisteven is professional and understands the real estate business. I highly recommend her.

Hands down one of the top realtors we have ever worked with! Super fast responses, always flexible with showing schedules/locations all over the valley, and overall a great person to work with! Trust when I say, we where unique clients, specific in what we wanted, and she showed us 15+ listings from Phoenix to the city of Maricopa. Not once did she hesitate to show us the homes we where interested in, sometimes multiple visits to the same listing. Ceejay never stops thinking of what is best for her clients and it really shows that she loves what she does for a career. She follows up every step of the way and is great at communicating the needs of the client to the other party in a transaction. Ceejay helped us close on a home we fell in love with and was there every step of the way. 100% will recommend to anyone looking for a property! Thanks again Ceejay, keep being awesome!

Given that we had just watched Mary Jo successfully sell our neighbor's home, she seemed the easy choice for a realtor to represent us in the sale of our Ahwatukee house. We have not, for one moment, regretted that choice. From our initial contact with Mary Jo to the closing of our sale, she was responsive, professional, warm and determined. Despite the uncertainty of this time in the housing market, Mary Jo's profound knowledge and expertise led us to multiple offers within our first week on the market. She gave us insights, without pressure, into every necessary decision in regards to our sale. I cannot express how reassuring this was as we navigated an international move. Without hesitation, I would offer my highest recommendation of Mary Jo to anyone seeking to buy or sell their home.
– Katie & Matt T.
We cannot say enough about Mary Jo and her husband Mike. We relocated to Chandler, AZ and were somewhat overwhelmed with everything from purchasing the home to small remodels we wanted to do. They were very knowledgeable about the area and even helped keep us away from some properties that would have been a mistake for us. Mary Jo and Mike had awesome contacts who were able to turn our home in to a turn key experience. It was not all rainbows and butterflies though as we had a somewhat unique situation arise with a future neighbor and they were able to rely on her to resolve it. Both Mary Jo and Mike were recommended by friends of ours who had to relocate for work like we did and we are so thankful that they recommended them. We are truly thankful for them and are blessed to know them.

Just by chance we were looking for realtors in the Sun Lakes area in Arizona and called Mary Jo. She was quick to call back and answer any questions we had. Mary Jo made what could have been a very stressful process completely painless. They quickly learned exactly what we were looking for and now we own the house of our dreams. Throughout this process they went above and beyond tackling all the issues and handling the smallest details. I always felt they were on my side and always offered great advice. I couldn't have asked for a better realtor in finding my new home. I would highly recommend her for any of your real estate matters, so look no further!
– Sheryl R.
Mary Jo and her husband Mike were hands down the best Real Estate Agents we have ever had. We didn't know much about the area because we were relocating for work. They researched potential areas to look and took time out of their busy day to show us around for a week. We found an awesome house and we couldn't be happier. They helped make our relocation as painless as possible and walked us through every phase of the home buying process. We have found our Real Estate Agents for our future purchases. We wouldn't dream of hiring any other Agent if we are ever looking for a house in AZ again.
– Anton G.
Mike and Mary Jo were absolutely great. They helped me find our perfect family home. Mike has the patience of a saint and is seriously the kindest, most open-minded, outgoing Realtor - ever. Mary Jo is equally the same, patient, very thorough, knowledgeable, and she works very hard to get you what you want. They do not pressure you and are really there when you need them. I have had my opportunity to meet a handful of Realtors in the valley and none of them come close to this dynamic duo. Thanks so much, Mary Jo and Mike. It was nothing short of a pleasure to work with you.
– Misty A.
What a team! Mary Jo and Mike were so incredibly helpful assisting us to find a wonderful home in the Glendale area. Once we found the home they were so skilled negotiating for their buyer in a seller's market. We were very impressed with the home inspector as well as the subcontractors they had look at the house and provide bids so were knew exactly the bottom line. My husband and I were so impressed and can not say enough to thank them for an outstanding job. There were on "our team" and so invested in finding a home we loved and making it happen. Impressed Buyers.

Mary Jo stood by us for two years as we suffered fits and starts of moving, then not moving, then finally moving after all and when we listed, she walked us through not only the process, but the contractors, services and range of options we needed to consider to give this old house to new owners who would appreciate and repair her. I hope we never have to move again but if we do, our first call will be to Mary Jo. We trust and value her knowledge, expertise, and clearly kind and forgiving manner after working with us for two years.
– Sandy & Jon P.
Mary Jo helped us sell our home last month and our transaction couldn’t have gone smoother without her support. She went above and beyond our expectations. When our moving company went south, Mary Jo offered to help us move and ensured we got everything we needed for our new journey. She treated us like we were her only clients. We couldn’t be more happy with Mary Jo. I highly recommend her; she is hands down the best realtor in the Phoenix area!

If you are in the market to buy or sell your home, I cannot say enough great things about Mike and Mary Jo Santistevan of Team Santistevan at Berkshire Hathaway. This husband and wife team is extremely thorough, detailed, and very knowledgeable of the market. They certainly made a big relocation from the Midwest super simple and easy! Thank you both very much. We were certainly fortunate to find you!
– Tim P.
Mary Jo and Mike were extremely hands on. This was my first time buying a home and working with a team that is responsive was a massive help. I had a ton of questions and they answered them immediately. They made the entire process super easy and fun. They were always available whenever I needed and I appreciated it!
– Alex P.
This is my 10th work relocation and the best home buying experience I've ever had! Mary Jo is super responsive and truly interested in finding the right home for you. Mary Jo knows this market and area inside-out. I would highly recommend Mary Jo and her Group to anyone!
– Greg D.
We have used Mary Jo for two sales and two subsequent purchases. We couldn't be happier with her knowledge and willingness to go the extra mile. She is the last realtor you will ever need.
– Jackie & Stephen M.
