I want to send you a heartfelt thank you for the outstanding, professional and reliable service you provided to me throughout the purchasing process for our house in North Scottsdale. I truly feel compelled to recognize your detailed professional knowledge through every step of the transaction, your attention to critical details and, above all, your high integrity in the representation of my interests as the buyer. You made me feel comfortable and well informed from the negotiation of the purchase contract with the seller through the inspection and closing. I look forward to working with you again on my next real estate need. Thank you!

Recent Client Testimonials: ... Julie G.

We can never quite sum up the extreme pleasure it was to work with Andrew in the professional, efficient, knowledgeable, effortlessly swift and ultimately satisfying experience we had in the purchase of our home. Andrew was uniquely communicative and effective in every step of the purchasing process. We will highly recommend to anyone we know in search of their dream home! Thanks!! John & Julie

Recent Client Testimonials: ... I. Meyer

It was a pleasure working with Andrew during our search for a "home away from Home" in the Scottsdale area! Though it was very hot weather during much of our search, he stuck with us, showing whatever we asked to see. These requests stretched from North Phoenix to East of the 101, from Old Town Scottsdale to Paradise Valley and beyond. When we finally found the perfect spot for us, his ease in assisting us and our Credit Union with the closing, loan and HOA requirements made it a pleasurable process. I highly recommend Andrew to anyone looking for real estate in the area.

Recent Client Testimonials: ... Richard O.

I had a great buying experience using Andrew Birss. He was very organized, timely and worked very hard for me to find the right condo. I would highly recommend him to family, friends others looking for a great broker.

Recent Client Testimonials: ... Joe and Alison K.

Andrew was a true professional in a real estate world full of unprofessionals. He made time to work with our schedule and was on top of all the minor and major details in the process. We would definitely recommend Andrew and would call upon him again when we need real estate help.

Recent Client Testimonials: ... B. Nolan and J. Nolan

My husband and I had the pleasure of working with Andrew Birss this spring in regards to the purchase of a condo in Tempe. The property was a foreclosure, something we were unfamiliar in dealing with, and Andrew provided invaluable service during the entire process. His expertise and thorough handling of all aspects of the purchase helped bring about a successful completion of the transaction. Andrew's patience, above all of his attributes, was the most appreciated by us. He also aided us in securing swift and effective financing with a highly professional mortgage company after an initial disaster we had with Chase Bank.

Our experience with Andrew was highly cordial and professional, and we now consider him a friend. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions regarding Andrew. We would not hesitate to contact Andrew if we require the services of a real estate agent in the future.
