Reviews From Local Homebuyers

Zia Group was fantastic to work with! They are kind, confident, had excellent recommendations and ideas. They were very accurate with their predictions, and were very available to us. I would highly recommend them!!

Joe Larson

Zia Group came highly recommended to me by my coworkers and based on my experience I will certainly pass the recommendation on. As a first time homebuyer I had a lot of questions about all aspects of the process and Daniel Zia was my starting point for all of them. Daniel is a great listener and very personable and from our first meeting was very responsive, clear and thorough despite my very stupid questions. My emails and texts were always immediately answered, no matter the time of day. He is very aware of details, and noted many minor things that I would not have noticed during home tours and drafting offers, and yet he does not lose the big picture. I ended up having major troubles with my bank not meeting deadlines and nearly lost the house due to it. Zia Group did not hesitate to talk to the bank and use his and his groups influence to hurry the bank along, without which I would have lost my home and several thousand dollars. Buying a home is a tough process here for anyone. Zia Group did a fantastic job and took a huge load off my shoulders and my mind. I look forward to working with them again and I know they will be a huge asset to anyone in real estate market.

Daniel emailed us home listings on a weekly basis for four years before we purchased our home. Daniel was extremely professional and moved us through our home purchase easing the headaches that come along with the escrow process these days. My wife and I, even though we were both first time home buyers, felt completely comfortable with Daniel and trusted that he was looking out for our best interest. He was dedicated to ensuring we were making a wise investment and educated us on all aspects of the home buying experience At the end of our transaction he even offered us a hand in moving our belongings.

I met Zia Group via Zillow and they were quick to arrange showings of the properties I requested. They also prepared to show us a property that was not on my list and that is actually the property we purchased. We were pleased with their service and guidance.

Jon recently helped our family find the perfect home. He was relentless in seeking options but was very easy going making the process as stress-free as possible. He knows the market well and is cognizant of what is best for his clients. I would happily recommend Jon to any friend or family member when looking for their next home!
