"I live out of state and I depended on Laurie and Greg during the purchasing process. A few issues arose and Laurie and Greg handled them efficiently and successfully, all the while keeping me informed via email. What could have been a very stressful time for me was a lot less stressful due to the efforts of Laurie and Greg. Escrow even closed a week early.
Thanks Laurie and Greg"

Greg and Laurie Hill were absolutely excellent real estate
agents! They went above and beyond assisting us with an out of state sale, by
constantly monitoring the property and assisting us in getting some remodel work
done to help to facilitate the sale. I felt completely confident putting my
trust in them to act on my behalf and make good recommendations. We sold our
property quickly and were very satisfied with their service. They were very
professional and they communicated with us frequently throughout the process,
keeping us informed of progress and feedback along the way. I would highly
recommend them to anybody buying or selling property in the Sun City - Phoenix

very knowledgeable about the market and helped us focus our search. We would
definitely use them again for future transactions."
Greg are very knowledgeable and make a great team. They always were ready to
help and responded quickly to every question I had. When we went out looking at
several homes, there was a logical order and home information printed for me to
have each time. They kept on top of every aspect of the sale communicating with
the appraiser, lender, selling agent etc. My home purchase was easy and fun."
"Friendly, helpful, knowledgeable,"
Sincerely, Monica Harty
Greg were on top of everything from the list of homes we wanted to see to

team when buying their house."
Abe & Rosemary Rudnick
"Laurie was absolutely wonderful and helped us every step of the way. They probably thought we weren't real serious buyers, but we were, Laurie was willing to show us the one we were interested in three times, and followed through with our offer on her way to a cruise without complaining. She is a real doll."
"All went smoothly ..thank you both"
Sincerely, Kevin Cooley

Sincerely, Vince & Jolynn Geglia
"Laurie and Greg were most helpful and professional with our home purchase in Sun City Grand. They are owners in the community and were able to answer every question and concern. We were on a time crunch and they worked together as a team to help us find our house in the limited time we had to spend in Phoenix. We are out of state purchasers and they volunteered to do our final walk through and hold our keys until we are able to come into town again.
They are a great team and went above and beyond to care for our every need. We were very happy with the professionalism and knowledge they have in the real estate business."
Delore & Rich Shwartz
"Laurie & Greg were very knowledgeable of the area and after looking at several homes I can honestly say they knew what we were looking for better than we did. They found us the perfect home and were enjoyable companions throughout the search. We ended up practically neighbors and look forward seeing them in the hood. This is the second home we have purchased with their help and would recommend them to anyone looking for their perfect home."
Gary & Susan McDonald
We moved from Florida to Arizona early last fall to get away from the humidity, hurricane threats, and exorbitant insurance rates. We knew the Phoenix area was our choice having visited it August of 2011. We retained Desert Gem Real Estate to guide us through home hunting having heard of the Sun City developments similar to the one on Ruskin Florida. They seemed to know the area "like the back of their hands". Being retired, we preferred adult communities and they showed us Sun City Grand in Surprise, AZ. We Were hooked. So many choices until they showed us the home we now have. As it needed some updating we jumped at the price. The mortgage process, vastly different than in Florida, was simplified with their expertise. Calls always returned if not caught immediately. They were cheerful and answered all our questions accurately and concisely. They come highly recommended by me.
"Laurie and Greg were very helpful with every aspect of the process, and helped close simply and quickly, answering all questions along the way."
I began searching for a Sun City home on the www.desertgemre.com website months before I came to Arizona from Oregon to house hunt in person. The Hill's allowed me to access full details of house listings to see if the room sizes would accommodate my pool table. I made a contingent offer on a Sun City West home based upon the completion of my Oregon home sale. The Oregon home buyer backed out so my first Arizona home could not be completed. That did not discourage Laurie and Greg. They continued to work 100% to find me the best home available. I was able to sell my Oregon home pretty quickly the second time. I found a recently reduced price Sun City West listing that looked promising. Laurie and Greg went with my friends to look at it, and all were impressed. I bought the house sight unseen based upon the listing and the recommendations of my friends and Laurie and Greg. I am now completely moved in. The house is fantastic and just what I wanted. I trusted Laurie and Greg completely and they did not let me down. They were honest and clear in their communications and could have not been more responsive. It was a pleasure dealing with them. They are the best realtors I have ever worked with and this was my sixth home purchase. I used a federal VA loan which can be a real test of the patience of the buyer and their realtors. Laurie and Greg put in a ton of time and effort to get the job done. They have been to the home after the sale was done to see the results of some of my improvements. I could not be more pleased and impressed.
wonderful, she has been sending me listings for over 2 yrs, I let her know when
I was flying out. Next day we went house hunting, by day 3 we found our dream
home. Highly recommend, drove us around and took us everywhere."
"Very much so. Both Laurie and Greg were very helpful in assisting us to in our search for a new home in Arizona. Kept us informed of new listings we might be interested in and went the extra mile."
From viewing homes to the final closing, Laurie and Greg Hill were professional and stayed on top of everything, so, I could get the house I wanted closed. I had an issue with my lender, and with Laurie and Greg Hill's help, I was able to get a another lender that would work with me. They were very friendly and professional in all respects of the transaction. I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND using them
"Laurie & Greg are so efficient and kept me up to date and they are very nice and easy to ask questions to. I would highly recommend them."
I am 85 years old and have bought and sold many homes over the years. Greg and Laurie have been the best agents to work with, that I have ever dealt with. Being single, I was looking for the right condo to live in. They found me the perfect adult community condo, with many amenities that fit my life style completely. I cannot recommend them highly enough………..they are great!!!!!
Laurie and Greg were great to work with during our search for a Sun City property. They showed us many properties in our price range until we found a property that fit our needs. They were very professional through the entire process of our purchase, and I would highly recommend their services to anyone wishing to buy a home.
Laurie and Greg are a delight to work with. I am a home inspector and it is always a pleasure to work with them. As a home inspector I work with many realtors. Laurie and Greg are among the top on my list. They are responsive and always available when needed, which can make a world of difference when inspecting a home. And, their clients love them because they are so supportive.
" We saved over $3,000 when we Sold our previous home, using Greg & Laurie. Thanks to them, with our Savings, we were able to put that towards our New Home and New Furniture! We highly recommend them to everyone, whenever we get the opportunity."
Marti & Barb
Laurie and Greg were and are very helpful in us finding a home in Sun City they gave us MLS listings every day so we could see what was available in Sun City and Sun City West and they drove us around to look at houses and helped out with all the information we needed through closing.
We will distribute the business cards and keep telling people about the Excellent quality of work, both of you produce.
Thank you very much
Hanh & Carl
If anyone wants to purchase a home in Arizona I recommend Laurie and Greg Hill from Desert Gem Real Estate because they did an awesome job helping us select the home we wanted. They kept us in the loop by communicating clearly and explaining in details any questions we asked. Laurie and Greg even took the time to suggest places for us to eat and visit. They are fabulous realtors.
Connie & Don Weaver
I originally was introduced to Laurie and Greg Hill over the internet after doing some searches for properties in the Sun City/Sun City West area back in December of 2012. Laurie emailed me and asked if she could be of any assistance in my searches. There were several Real Estate folks who contacted me for the same reasons, but all of the them were very pushy and kept calling to try and get my business. Not Laurie and Greg. I explained my situation to them and they were very respectful of my timeframes and conditions. I asked them if they were willing to work with me even though I might not be purchasing for 6-8 months. They were very willing to work within my timeframes and budget with no pressure. They responded to my questions and requests immediately and all the information they provided me was very accurate and helpful. Once I had chosen a property, they expedited the process perfectly without missing a beat. They were always available and were always willing to go the extra mile. I would, without question, recommend them to anyone I know who needs a friendly, professional and knowledgeable real estate team. Thanks Laurie and Greg for a job well done.
"Great job, very responsive. They like me, were frustrated with the Seller's agent.
Additionally, they went beyond expectations in providing me scanning & email service."
Sincerely, Bill Hall
"With our growing family, we were so cramped in our rental. Plus, this was the second time, our rental was sold out from under us. We were told we had 30 days to move. Laurie and Greg were able to get us pre-approved with their lender, and find us our Dream Home. Laurie and Greg not only took the stress out of the situation, they had our new home closed before we had to be out of our rental, Plus, they saved us a $1,000 on our closing costs."
Chuck, Billie Jo & Family
My husband and I were very impressed with Laurie & Greg's integrity and moral professionalism, in the way they handled the listing and selling of our home.
Greg & Laurie did an excellent job listing and handling the sale of my home, including following it through to closing. I needed help in all aspects of selling my home, especially since I lived out of the area. I'd recommend them in a heart beat.
Laurie & Greg, after listing my home, really worked hard to get it sold for me. In fact, they worked above and beyond. They more than earned their 2% listing commission on our home.
When I listed my home with Greg & Laurie, the market was slow and my financial position was very limited. I didn't think I could afford to list and sell my home. However, Greg & Laurie worked out a plan to list my home and get it sold
"I'm impressed with your follow-up and communication. Tom Albertson, the buyer's agent and I were talking and it has been a pleasure working with you. Thank you for helping us make this transaction as smooth as it has been. If ever you are in need of a lender, it would be my pleasure to work with you again!"
Robin Gentry - Eagle Mortgage
Laurie & Greg did not stop at just listing or selling a home. After the sale, they are still there working hard for their clients. When they are asked for help from Escrow, they're right there doing whatever is needed to get the sale closed for their clients. They actually work harder than a lot of agents that get full commission.
