My wife and I are very pleased with Joe Szabo and his wonderful team of real estate professionals! Our house in Fountain Hills was listed with another agency from October 2013-March 2014 with very little activity. We relisted with Szabo in March 2014. They did an excellent job in flooding the market with quality marketing information including superior photos. We immediately began having activity and an offer within 30 days of Joe's listing. Joe was responsive to our many questions and stayed with us right through the closing. We would undoubtedly use Joe Szabo and his office again and would recommend them to all of our friends!

Having Joe and Linda as your realtors is like having a realtor in the family... and a really great one at that! They listen carefully to what you're looking for and with their vast knowledge of the marketplace, if it exists, they'll find it and take you to see it. No matter how busy they may be, they always take your calls and schedule a time to meet with you. Whether you've bought many homes before you or are a first-time buyer, Linda & Joe will lead you through the process and answer all your questions. Since I felt that I had I explored all the possibilities, I was able to make a decision without feeling "buyer’s remorse". I would use them again myself and would highly recommend them!
Joe and Linda Szabo are an incredible team. They are extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of real estate and provided meticulous and comprehensive service to us in every facet of the buying and selling processes. Their expertise, unmatched integrity, dedication and personal commitment to us brought a deep sense confidence and trust as they guided us through the sale of two houses and a condo, the renting of two properties, and the purchase of two homes. We particularly appreciated that they made a concerted effort to provide guidance around the strengths and weaknesses of each property in every situation, taking a personal interest in what was best for our family. They are resourceful and well-informed and were conscientious in effectively communicating with all parties. They made themselves available and accessible every and any time we needed them. They are warm, caring, individuals whose professional prowess is built on strong moral values. Both are unassuming and enjoyable to work with which helped alleviate our stress as we navigated through all of our real estate ventures. We enthusiastically and confidently recommend the Szabo Group for any and all of your real estate needs.

Dear Joe & Linda Szabo:
I want to send you a huge thank you for all that you did to support me and my wife Kathy during our recent sale of our home in Scottsdale, AZ! Not only are you professional in your handling of such an important transaction, but you have been terrific to work with. Let’s begin with your approach to Marketing our home. The pictures of the home made it look even better than what we know the home to be with the attention to detail and a top-notch photographer who knows how to put it all together. In addition, you know how to “stage” a home properly, taking out unnecessary clutter and getting it ready to sell.
Secondly, you are knowledgeable not only of the local area, but your experience gives you a great deal of credibility when it comes to establishing a suggested selling price. Not only that, you are willing to take into account the seller’s situation and will work with the seller to come to a fair and reasonable starting point.
Thirdly, the feedback you receive from prospective agents and buyers is taken seriously and you take that into account when making suggestions to the seller as to what can be done to sell the house more expeditiously and at a higher price.
Finally, when it comes to negotiating the sale, you know your business! You have the right balance with getting a fair price and still making the sell. We were in a difficult market and you did everything you could to balance reality with the seller’s needs.
If we had to do it all over again, we would not hesitate to hire both you and Linda to sell our home! In fact, we wish you were able to assist us with buying our home now that we have moved to the Midwest.
All in all, we had a great experience with you and your associates and wish you nothing but the best in the years ahead. And, if we decide we need to move back to where the sun shines 320 days out of the year, we will call you first without hesitation!
Many thanks for a great experience!

Thank you, again, for the tremendous job that you did in finding us our wonderful home. After moving six times in eight years we can say with certainty that you are the most professional, capable and conscientious real estate agents we have ever known. You exceeded our every expectation. Finding our new house in one day (after we had looked for a year with other agents) and then selling our house for full asking price in less than a week can only be described in one word: Wow!! Thank you again.

Thank you so much for your very generous gift. Tony and I saw a beautiful throw at Ladlow’s which now sits on our living room sofa. Every time we see it, we think of both of you. Your many kindnesses and generosity of time were, and are much appreciated. You guys manage to blend perfectly just the right amount of professionalism with friendly warmth. Your ability to pinpoint and translate our needs into the perfect home is a very special gift. We thank you for sharing that gift with us as well. We love, love, love our home. Our most recent visits here have been short and very hectic, but now that things are shaping up we will be in touch and have you both over. If ever you are just in the neighborhood, please feel free to give us a call. We would love you to see what we have done, although we are not quite through. You guys are the best. Special thanks to two very special people.

Garrett and I would like to thank you for making our first home buying experience stress-free. We had complete faith in you both because of the way you looked out for our best interest, your honesty, and your years of experience. We felt very taken care of with you on our side and for that peace of mind we thank you. You have earned not only our business, but our friendship as well. We will call you when the paint and carpet are complete to take a look.

Ted and I wanted to thank you for all your contributions in helping us find our new home in Scottsdale. Our situation was somewhat unique due the fact that with Ted still back in Connecticut, I had to find and decide on the home selection on my own. Luckily, I met up with you at an open house and had your support to help me with the process. You both were tireless, patient and very available for appointments as we looked at numerous homes in the area. I also appreciated you input as to how a particular property measured up as an investment, as well as a suitable home for us to live in.
Once we found the right property, your negotiating skills and representations were outstanding! Not only did we find a most attractive home, but with your help, we also got a great deal. Your follow-up with the home inspection and other details prior to closing was flawless. This required a lot of extra time on your part since our closing was stretched out for several months ahead and the house was vacant. You were always available to answer our questions, and to oversee maintenance and other matters that came up prior to closing.
We both want to thank you for your help. I especially appreciate that with your assistance I came up with a real estate purchase that my husband was happy with when he arrived. If we ever are in the position to seek real estate help in the future, we know who to call-Joe and Linda- “they’ll leave no stone unturned” - realty experts.

I hope you had a good holiday. I wanted to let you know that Toll Brothers would like you to represent us on the sale of the Rosemary Lane house. I was very impressed with your presentation, your knowledge of that submarket, your reputation, your enthusiasm, and the research you did on the market and Toll Brothers in general prior to making your presentation.

During our recent visit to Phoenix, we felt that you had treated us like you were buying your own home and investing your own money. Initially, we had a little difficulty with the list of Realtors recommended by the St. Joseph’s Hospital. We were lucky to choose to work with you, given the additional recommendation of Dr. David Treiman. Although we have not been able to put an offer this time, we will not worry about finding an “ideal” house with your help. Needless to say, when St. Josephs seeks our opinion when someone else needs to buy a home, we will be very confident to recommend you.

I am sending you this email to let you know what a fantastic experience my wife Liz and I had working with Joe and Linda Szabo. They listed, showed, sold and closed our 2 homes in the Scottsdale area within 60 days and really helped us to meet all our deadlines on our new home in Clearwater, Florida. Selling a house (let alone two) is a stressful experience and the Szabos led us through the process effortlessly. They were instrumental in getting us the highest price in our neighborhood for the homes we sold. They are total pros and it shows.
We are VERY pleased with the Szabos and as a result will be recommending your RE/MAX office (and the Szabos!!) to everyone we know. It is this kind of customer service, attention to detail and caring personal attention that makes people feel terrific enough to take time out to write personal letters like this.
You have a real pair of gems in Joe and Linda Szabo. Having bought and sold 5 different homes in the past 10 years, I can without a doubt say that our experience with them was the BEST realty experience we have EVER had.

I just want to thank you both again for all the hard work you did for me in the purchase of my beautiful home. You both are so very well informed and I value your expertise in knowing your market. I could have not have done it without you both! I also wanted to thank you both for the gift certificate you gave me from Ladlow’s. I just purchased a large standing vase and a hand decorated box for the coffee table. The house is finally looking like a home! I’m looking forward to having you both over in the near future to see. I just love living here! So, thanks again!

Sandy, Lexie and I just want to thank you for the beautiful pewter platter and stand. We love it! It will always remind us of how thoughtful and caring you both were during a somewhat “stressful” situation. You took a difficult situation and turned it into a very positive experience. We will always appreciate your time, effort, dedication and friendship. Your professionalism and true interest in your clients’ welfare are unsurpassed. You both are “diamonds” in the real estate profession. You shine above and beyond everyone else. Thank you again.

Gary and I want to thank you for everything you did for us. You went above and beyond in every way to help us get the house we really wanted. It is so rare to find people today with your dedication, caring and professionalism. You truly help people achieve their dreams. We appreciate all your time and hard work. You are both such special caring people. I hope we can remain friends in the future.
