5-23- 16, Tom and PatFrom the moment we met them, they put any concerns to rest. They have a very easy going nature in dealing with each aspect of the process, but don’t let that fool you as they are aggressive in getting things done and are extremely experienced in their field. Our home was sold in 3 weeks and even though we had a very tight timeline for closing, everything went according to plan. I would and have recommended them to friends and family. This experience with Al and Sandy was great. They are professional and outgoing and always kept our priorities first. I always felt as though they were working for us and it showed in all our interactions. Thanks Al and Sandy!
5-3- 2016, Bob and DebbieWe had the privilege of working with Al La Peter and Sandy Kantor for two months after a disappointing 6 month experience with another Realtor. I was immediately impressed with their professionalism, and their artistic ability to present our home in terms that would catch the right buyer’s eye. They were business-like in their dealings with us but took time to encourage us that our home would sell to the right buyer. The marketing materials they developed for our home were beautiful and within a short time, we had a buyer. Walking us through the selling/negotiation process was masterfully done. Both us as sellers and the buyer were satisfied that we had a well thought out proposal for carrying the purchase forward. Hooray for our agents Al and Sandy!
2-10- 16, Monte and BarbaraI was in need of a broker to sell my parent’s home. After careful consideration of several Brokers I decided to go with Al and Sandy for several reasons but the primary reason was their tenacity to earn my business was superb. They worked hard to earn my business and I knew that would translate to them working hard to sell the home. Their marketing package was fabulous, their advice was solid, they aggressively marketed the home through several media outlets and held numerous open houses. You could not go wrong with them. I would strongly recommend them.
1-20- 16 Matt Al was recommended to us and we were extremely satisfied. He was thorough, listened well, and went above and beyond in narrowing down a group of homes for us to consider. We have dealt with numerous realtors over the years and I can honestly say Al is among the very best. He was always reachable and returned calls/emails promptly. I knew I was in good hands every step of the way. Larry and Lorraine S.
Al and Sandy made the hard job of relocating seem easy. They were able to help us locate a great home, worked with us on pricing, arranged all the inspections and guided us through the closing process while we were 900 miles away. We had a deadline and, with Al’s help, we made it. I think everyone should have Al as a team member when purchasing a home. Start to closing: 19 days….amazing! Kwai and Larry R.
Al & Sandy are very good people to work with if you are selling your home or buying. They give you 100% all of the time. The time and effort they put into the sale of my house, finding me another smaller home, and getting all of the closing details for simultaneous closings on both properties is incredible. If you want realtors who are totally immersed in their work, then you’ll be fortunate if you can work with these two! Darcy T.
As a transplant to the area I needed someone who could guide me through the details of a new community. Al had ideas and suggestions that I would have never considered. I appreciate Al’s efforts at getting me the perfect home. He and Sandy knew the market and were great in getting everything done efficiently and effectively even though we were not yet living in Tucson. Jane C.
My husband and I had our home on the market for three months. There were few showings and practically no interest. After selecting Al LaPeter and Sandy Kantor as our new listing agents, they walked us through our home and made multiple suggestions in regard to how best to prepare our home to sell. Our former agent had made no suggestions about home preparation. After we made the majority of the suggested changes, including staging the home, Al held an open house during the first weekend of the listing and sold the house. Total time from signing with Al & Sandy to the sale was only four days.
Sandy and Al are full of energy, enthusiasm, and optimism. Al handled most of the negotiations and closing details; he is immensely knowledgeable, and working with him is and was a joy. Al is an excellent negotiator and secured for us what we consider to be a very equitable price for our home. I recommend Sandy and Al without reservation. Kim M., Ph.D.
Al was extremely helpful, going out of his way to make things work. He worked around our schedule and provided guidance and direction when need. He organized our search and made it convenient and fun. He gave us suggestions that we found very useful and we are very satisfied. He worked late, sending us emails at late times and had emails waiting for us with listings when we woke up in the morning! Very professional, friendly and helpful. Jenny F.
Unlike other realtors, Al e-mailed us exactly the type of houses we were looking for. His entire team, including his recommended mortgage team, were excellent professionals. He got back to us and answered all questions in a few minutes. The buying and closing process went smoothly. Even after purchase his team has been very helpful and assisted us in getting acquainted with the local environment. In my 50 years of buying and selling homes, he is the best realtor I have had the pleasure of dealing with. Joel and Nancy U.
To say it simply, the Al and Sandy team is the best! We had our house on the market with another realtor for eight months and finally decided to make a change. After interviewing prospective realtors, we chose Al and Sandy for their excellent presentation. We definitely made the right choice. Al and Sandy held an open house every Saturday and Sunday during the listing. They kept us constantly informed regarding any showings, open house activity, views online from different web sites, etc. Since we had already moved, they gave us great advice on tweaking our house presentation. Because of their expertise, our house sold in six weeks. Although at our age we may not move again, if we do, our realtors will be the Al and Sandy team. Claudia and Walt B.
Al and Sandy are fantastic. Sandy did a fabulous job at staging and marketing our home. Al was very responsive and offered great advice during the entire sale process. They are the best in town- we highly recommend them to anyone selling their home. Suella M.
The very best real estate team in all of Tucson and surrounding communities! Al and Sandy were absolutely outstanding in their commitment to selling our house in the quickest time possible. Their continuous motivation and informative nature kept us aware of how well our house was doing at all times within the Tucson market. Their expertise within the real estate venue is invaluable to anyone who wants a “top-notch” team on their side when selling their home becomes paramount. Go with an all around “winner” with Team Al and Sandy. Chris W.
Al was the consummate professional. He found many homes in our price range to view and evaluate. He was never pushy or opinionated– he gave us time to decide and when asked, he would give us his opinion of the home, setting, neighborhood, etc. As we are new to the desert, his advice on how a home situated for sunrise and sunset was invaluable. We enjoyed his easy-going manner and local knowledge of the markets as well as “whom to call” for whatever issue. Al and Sandy are a “solid”, honest, hardworking team that I want on my side whether I am buying or selling a home. Give them a call! Tom P. and Anne Marie S. Al LaPeter and Sandy Kantor were very helpful in selling our home. We had tried two other realtors prior to hiring Al and Sandy, but had no results during an entire year. They made some suggestions to enhance the look of our home and within two months we had a buyer. Al and Sandy are very knowledgeable in handling real estate and will provide all their resources to help you find exactly the home you want or the buyer you need for your home. Jane R.
Al is a very knowledgeable and professional real estate agent. He knows the local market and acts with the utmost integrity to assure that his clients will receive the best buy for their money. He follows the daily listings and remains informed as to any changes that may occur. He has many years of experience in the field and uses his knowledge in expert negotiating and overseeing the processes needed to procure a fair and competent sale. Sandy was very helpful in the marketing of our property, which had been listed previously with another agent who did not get the job done. They are a great team and we would recommend them without hesitation, and they are fun people! Rick R.
I have known Sandy for many years and she has always been an intelligent, balanced resource for real estate knowledge. I have also known Al through the Sun Valley real estate community, where he was always respected as a wise realtor and broker. Because of Al’s many years in the real-estate business there is probably nothing he does not know or hasn’t experienced. As a former developer he is sensitive to value. In considering a possible move to the Tucson area, I asked Sandy and Al to show me homes in Oro Valley. I had total confidence that I was in good hands. Their enthusiasm for Tucson is infectious. Al has a great sense of humor and is a pleasure to be with; Sandy’s charm and wit make her a pleasure to be around while her intelligence and professional background contribute to her competency as a Realtor and advisor on real estate matters. Chris H.
We have known Al and Sandy for a long time. They are people of high integrity and work hard for their clients. When we decided we wanted an escape from shoveling snow in Woodstock, NY, we contacted them. We are very pleased with their efforts to locate the right place for us. We have received listings from them in the early morning, late at night and often just barely listed. They are really on top of the market. When we are ready to make an offer, I am sure that they will give us good advice in negotiating the best possible terms and make the purchasing process seamless. We would highly recommend them for any and all real estate transactions. Pamela and Colin F.
Al and Sandy and their entire team are highly skilled and professional. We are extremely pleased with their collective knowledge, process capabilities, support staff and responsiveness throughout the entire listing, negotiation and closing cycles. Over the many years we have bought/sold homes, we feel this was one of the most efficient, effective and communicative experiences we have ever seen. Take the time to meet Al and Sandy…. it will be a valuable investment of your time. Jim and Kathy L.
It was a pleasure to work with Al and Sandy. They were very knowledgeable, compassionate and understanding. Al & Sandy brought a terrific combination of experience and marketing to our unique house and helped us sell to a family who was a perfect fit for the property. They listened to our concerns and made the experience as pain-free as possible while greatly helping us along the way. We have now hired them to sell another horse property that we own, and are once again finding their help and support to be invaluable. Heath E. and Kristine K.
We had our home on the market with another agent for six months, during which time we had almost no showings and certainly no results. Al and Sandy have been amazing, and we have kicked ourselves for not having found them earlier! Bottom line, our home was sold in under two months…but equally significant is the level of expertise and caring that both AL and Sandy have shown for us, our needs and our beloved Tucson home. They and their administrator Anne McDermott were consummate professionals throughout our transaction, going far beyond any service we have ever received from any other Realtors. Montague McC.
Al and Sandy, we are so grateful for your super competence. The process you directed in selling our home was masterful. It is such a joy to see true professionals at work. We also appreciate the skill of your office staff. Ann McDermott was very skilled and patient with us as she walked us through some of the necessary procedures for carrying out a real estate sale. The people of Tucson are so fortunate to have you two here and contributing to their economy in a positive way. We hope to stay in touch with you after all of this drama is over. In the meantime, you have made us very happy and we are grateful. Barbara McC.
