As a team who are experts in this local area, we bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise about buying and selling real estate here. It's not the same everywhere, so you need someone you can trust for up-to-date information. We are eager to serve you. Here are some of the things we can do for you:
Find Your Next Home
You need someone who knows this area inside and out! We can work with you to find the right home at the right price for you, including all the neighborhood amenities that matter - not to mention the essential criteria you have for your ideal home
Sell a Home
When it's time to move, you need someone who will advertise your home, show to prospective buyers, negotiate the purchase contract, arrange financing, oversee the inspections, handle all necessary paperwork and supervise the closing. We can take care of everything you need, from start to close.
Consult on Home Selling Tactics
Oftentimes buyers don't visualize living in your home the way you do. We can make your home attractive to its ideal audience - which can help you get top dollar. Things like staging the home, making repairs or minor improvements, or even simply painting the walls can be the difference between a home resting on the market and one that's sold fast.

We recently had to do a short sale on our home of eight years due to personal issues and the bad economy. We were at the end of our rope. A friend recommended Lynette Clemens so we sat down and talked with her. She told us we could trust her and with tears in our eyes we did!!!! She is an "Angel" to us!!! She became our friend also. She went above and beyond to sell our home. Lynette, Salli, and their team sold our home in four month's because we trusted them with everything. We have recommended them to several people because we believe in the AZValueBuilders team. So if you are wondering if you should do this or not, give them a call to learn what options you have. You are in good hands with this group..... Thanks for everything!
It is with great appreciation that I am writing to give our highest recommendation to Lynette and her team at Keller Williams. I originally approached Lynette with a bit of a challenging situation. We needed to sell my aging mother’s home. Mom lived in Scottsdale and I live in the Pacific Northwest. Lynette listened well and helped make the sale happen.
Lynette and her team were able to handle anything that came up. She made sure to keep me in the loop, so I was able to help mom understand what to expect. Mom became a friend of Lynette’s. My mother was treated with the love, respect, and compassion of a relative, not a client. Lynette was able to support my needs long distance and my mom’s locally. She had an amazing amount of patience as she supported the sale of the house.
While the local housing market continued to change, Lynette was well informed in her approach to the sale of the home. She was highly organized and I was always able to count on her: if she said she would do something, I knew it would get done. I remained impressed throughout the process. I told Lynette I knew she had our back, and she did, at all times. If you are looking for an agent who is smart, informed and able to clearly communicate, you have found your team.
With many thanks and much respect,
I would like to thank Lynette Clemens for all of her hard work in finding my family a home in Queen Creek. She worked so hard for us. She did not stop until she found the perfect house for my family.. She even worked when she was sick. She worked on the weekends. She worked nonstop until she found our home. I want to say she is the greatest, hard working Realtor I have ever met. I would recommend her to any of my friends and family.

Don’t trust the sale of your home to just any real estate agent. This down market requires an organized team of experienced agents with the specialized knowledge and negotiation skills that Lynette and her team possess. Faced with the unpleasant prospect of losing our home to foreclosure, we contacted Lynette who expertly negotiated a successful short sale. Less than two weeks after signing the listing contract, she found a buyer and began negotiations with the bank. She kept in close communication with us and based on her experience was able to set our expectations during the process. Even though the bank only required one offer, Lynette encouraged us to continue showing our home so that she could take back up offers. She told us that often times in a short sale, the second buyer completes the process because an impatient first buyer can easily back out during the negotiation process with the bank. About a week later, the first buyer backed out. Within two weeks, she had a new buyer and a new back up offer. When the new buyer expressed reservations about proceeding under terms of the obligatory “AS IS” short sale addendum, she assured their agent that we would complete a seller’s disclosure and that we would provide all of the builder’s warranty information. Lynette wrote a letter thwarting a last minute bank attempt to significantly increase our closing costs. In the short sale process she earned the respect of the bank negotiator and the buyer’s agent. Yes, she was right; the second buyer completed the purchase of our home. We are deeply grateful for all that she accomplished. Thanks for everything.
Of all the decisions we made during our move to relocate to Illinois, the best one by far was using Salli as our selling agent. Having worked with Salli in another field, I already knew that she would handle the sale of our home with integrity and professionalism. Our first meeting confirmed it--Salli went through our house top to bottom, listened to our needs and concerns and gave us several tips on staging our home. She was very realistic with us about the downturn in the market, warning that although we wanted to relocate quickly, we should prepare ourselves for the possibility of a long stretch of waiting,,, it could be months before we closed. Well, thanks to Salli's integrity, expertise and solid advice, we ended up accepting our 4th offer in the first 9 days we were on the market! Big thanks to Salli for counseling us not to take some of the earlier offers (my husband was nervous, worried that each offer would be the last) but instead wait for the right one. The rest of the process was smooth sailing. Salli handled everything, including bringing the contract to me on closing day while I was home sick in bed! If there was a way that we could have packed up Salli and taken her with us to Illinois, we would have done it. I still have family and friends in the Valley, and have recommended Salli to all of them. We know who we're calling if we decide to move back to AZ as snowbirds!
Purchasing a home is a very stressful and difficult decision, especially when there are so many homes to choose from. Salli Holden's professionalism and knowledge helped me while I was viewing over a dozen homes in a short period of time. Her time, as all of ours, is valuable but I never felt rushed or impatience from her. The purchase of my home back in August of 2008 seemed very simple with her help. She accompanied me to the closing, which was very overwhelming with all the documents required but having her there made it seem easier. I would recommend Salli over and over (as a hairdresser, I already have)as a Realtor to anyone wanting to purchase a house.
I had the pleasure of working with Lynette this year to buy my first house. I was very picky about what I wanted and how much I was willing to pay for it. Lynette was able to pick up on that and she helped me to find the perfect property. As a first time home buyer, I had lots of questions about how the whole process worked. Lynette was very patient with me and explained every step along the way. Because I decided to buy a bank owned property, the process was a little more complicated, but Lynette made sure that everything went smoothly. I really feel like Lynette went above and beyond for me and I would highly recommend her to anyone who is looking to buy a house. Not only did I get the house of my dreams for less than I was planning to pay, but it was a pleasant experience too. Thanks Lynette!

When Lynette first asked us to write a few words on our experience we had with her as our realtor, We thought "Great, this will be easy! Well, now that we have to actually do it, It's another story! How do you explain to others the ease and Peace of mind that came with this whole process? We have never hired anyone to do any work for us, we usually do it all. We thought that buying or selling our own home would be easy. After biting the bullet and going thru this whole process with Lynette as our realtor, we realized how seriously wrong we could have been! Lynette was and is, so informed and up to date with today's areas and market. We definitely realize that without Lynette we never would have gotten the fullest (and exceeded) value for our home, or be in the dream home that we are now in. Her personality is very professional and we value the new friendship that has since developed.
Lynette is truly a joy to work with. Her warmth and sincere professionalism go a long way in today's business world. Lynette really cares for her clients and it shows in her actions - she does what she says she will do! She goes the extra mile, does that bit more and measures her success by your happiness. And one more thing that I love Lynette is she has the ability to make everyone feel special in a genuine way!!

Salli, Thank you for all the effort, time and hard work. The team work you have there is just great. Thanks again.
James and Jeanette Bray
Kudos to the Keller Williams Legacy Team, that is, Lynette Clemens, Sally Holden, and Rosanne Cromer. Handling our short sale was, for your team, a great deal of hard work but for us, the client, it couldn't have gone smoother. Your 100% success rate must give you good contacts with powerful people in the lending industry. Your diligence in providing all parties with full docs must be a big help in your negotiating. The news media has it right when they refer to you as the " REAL ESTATE EXPERTS ".
It was a very hard decision for me when I decided to put my home up for a "short sale". I had no idea what steps I would need to take, or who to turn to for help. A good friend of mine recommended Salli, and I am very glad! Salli was friendly and professional. With this emotional time, I needed both! She was very knowledgeable, and had my house listed the same day. She dealt with my mortgage company, and kept me well informed. I plan on using Salli to help me purchase my next home. Thanks, Salli!

Lynette assisted our family with the purchase of our very first home. She was our liaison to the builder and was very thorough during each step of the process. She made it easy for us to focus on the fun and excitement of purchasing our home while she handled all the details for us. When it came time for us to sell that home, Lynette was again our realtor of choice. She explained the process to us, was very efficient and professional, and we were able to sell our home for a substantial profit. I would recommend Lynette to anyone looking to purchase or sell a home or land. You won't be disappointed!
Lynette is an Agent that always shows that her clients come first. As long as I have known her the client’s wants and needs are her first priority. Her honesty and integrity show through in everything she does. This is the reason she is an outstanding Agent.

We had been looking throughout the East Valley for a home for several months, and were getting frustrated that the houses were just not what we were looking for. We had already worked with two realtors, and had two deals fall through and were feeling very discouraged. Then we met Lynette Clemens... she immediately struck us as someone who was in the real estate business not necessarily for the money, but in order to connect with people, and truly help them find a home. When we started looking with her, we discovered that the market was changing, and that we needed to re-evaluate our values and goals for house-buying. She was honest, up-front, and very knowledgeable about the market and how it was changing and was excellent at advising and steering us in a direction that made us feel comfortable with our decisions. The information she gave us, along with her personal experience allowed us to make the right move. She worked for us like we were her only clients, and made us feel like we were her #1 priority. Her attention to detail, professionalism, and hard work made a huge impact on us, not to mention her sunny personality! Lynette is not just a fantastic realtor, she is also a wonderful person, and someone we now consider our personal friend.

We were having so much trouble trying to find a house but then we were introduced to a real estate agent by the name of Lynette Clemens. Lynette listened to our previous troubles and really seemed concerned. She was very responsive to our needs and listened carefully to what we were trying to find. She showed us a house in Peoria that fit our needs perfectly and she was very professional with the transactions all the way from start to finish. We, Terry and Sandy Brezina, highly recommend Lynette Clemens to be your real estate agent. Lynette was always there for us when we were buying our house. Her knowledge and experience in the real estate industry is outstanding. We have never seen such a hard worker who gets the job done for you thoroughly and correctly. She will go the extra mile for you too. If you are looking for a real estate agent, please give Lynette Clemens a call. You will have a wonderful experience with her. We are so thankful to have met her. She is a wonderful person.
Lynette Clemens is the Realtor of choice...even with other Realtors! Because I was so impressed by her professionalism and service to me while selling my home, I chose to join her at Keller Williams Legacy One when I later decided to become a Realtor myself! Her superior knowledge and exceptional dedication to her clients makes her an experienced, reliable real estate professional that I highly recommend.

"Lynette never knew the impact that she would have on our lives, both from a business standpoint and personal standpoint, when she was asked to be our realtor on both the sale of our home and purchase of our new land. When our daughter had to have an extremely expensive life saving procedure, she stepped forward with everything she had to find a buyer for our home and spearhead a massive fundraising campaign. Her recommendations and advice helped us close with a buyer for a higher amount of CASH that we ever expected. We instantly developed a trust in her and it paid off in the end. Lynette is honest and ethical, and it made a huge difference to us. If you're looking for a realtor who will take the extra step to get it done, Lynette is the realtor for you. She will always be recommended by us to friends and acquaintances as the first realtor of choice in the future."

I was able to finally accomplish a life's dream in buying my first home this past November. I didn't know where to start in my venture. When screening potential Realtor's, I was beginning to feel like prey and the vulture's just would not stop circling. I was then referred to the light at the end of my tunnel, Lynette Clemens. She had already been the joy to a couple of people I work with, with the purchase of their new homes. They assured me that I would not be disappointed. Well, I am here to tell you that they were right. Working with Lynette made my first experience of home buying, everything I thought it should be. There was no pressure, no commitments, no empty promises, and no stone left unturned. She took MY wants, and MY affordability, showed me my options, and I decided what to choose. There was never any time constraints, inaccessibility to her, no unreturned phone call, or unanswered questions. She took as much time as necessary with me, stayed within my parameters, was so patient, caring and kind through the whole process. She was everything my friends had promised her to be and more. Because of that, my children and I are now very proud to be in a home of our own. I urge you to explore the possibilities of Lynette Clemens as your Light House Keeper and let her turn on YOUR light at the end of your tunnel. Sincerely.
Josh and Jill Becker
Thanks for all your hard work Lynette. In these "tough times" it definitely takes a little extra effort to get a house sold. Without having a dedicated agent like yourself I'm sure our house would STILL be on the market. Thanks Again

We knew that the housing market in Phoenix in April 2009 was the perfect time to buy our home for retirement even though we were 7 - 10 years away from retirement. We live in Washington state and it was our first trip to Phoenix. We planned to make an offer on a house by the end of our week-long trip. Lynette spent nearly every day with us and showed us homes throughout the entire Phoenix area. By the end of the week, we'd made an offer on a home that was perfect for us. With Lynette's help, all of the closing/inspection/appraisal details were taken care of long distance. We couldn't have done it without her.
"It is with pleasure that we share our experience of working with Rosanne Cromer in buying our home. We have purchased a few houses in our lives and Rosanne helped with two purchases. Her skills are superior, such as her ability in identifying the right criteria for our search. Some people just ask "How big" or "How many bedrooms are you looking for?", but Rosanne took the time to get to know us and asked us how we live and what we want out of the property. Then set to work to find the right fit. She was patient and put forth several offers for us. When we found "the house, she was with us every step of the way. She advised us on the process, recommended a very detailed house inspector, advised us with post-inspection items, and kept track of all the details. No surprises, no misunderstandings, which in turn produced no mistakes. Her honest advice, patience, tenacity and knowledge of the market make it a real delight to work with Rosanne. I hope you take advantage of the oppor"

"We cannot speak highly enough of Rosanne Cromer. If you are looking for a knowledgeable real estate agent, you've found her!! Just some quick background..my husband and I were working with another agency and it was just a nightmare! Everything that could go wrong did. We missed houses because they were not in our "custom" portal listing, we lost deals because our agent was inexperienced and did not negotiate well on our behalf. After months of heartbreak and disappointment, we had pretty much just given up. Luckily, a good friend referred us to Rosanne and that ALL changed. Not only was she knowledgeable, experienced, and dedicated...she was invested. Rosanne really went the extra mile at every turn. Within a 72 hour time frame, Rosanne showed us our dream home, made the offer, and negotiated the deal successfully! My husband and I cannot thank Rosanne enough for her tireless efforts. We finally own our dream home!!!!"
