Finalize the sale

Our team will help you review all closing documents, keep track of any upcoming deadlines, and discuss findings from inspections.  We will help facilitate all the needed steps for you to be confident in a successful closing, transfer of funds and ultimately a huge congrats on your new ownership.

Reviews From Local Homebuyers

Zia Group was invaluable to us when we were selling our house and trying to buy at the same time. Their sage advice and professionalism made our experience terrific. We negotiated (with his help) a great sales price and a great buy price. Zia Group are keepers!!!

Jason & Kirsten Bennett

Zia Group went above and beyond the call of duty. They walked us through the entire process and explaining everything thoroughly, which was very helpful since we are first time homeowners. They had a friendly disposition as is supported by a highly knowledgeable team! I cannot give enough stars to Zia Group, highly recommend them!

Kathy Serrano

We loved the personal service, details, knowledge and overall amazing experience that Zia Group and the team provided us during our home buying experience.

Dave & Mary Wolph

I knew Daniel was a good Real Estate agent but I had no idea how great him and his team actually are. Everyone on the team was extremely helpful and willing to go out of their way to make us happy. We were buying a home for the first time and they dealt with my never ending questions with such patience. It was always about us having a good experience and what is best for us. Along with that, Daniel was able to negotiate a killer deal. The company is a leader in the area for good reason. Very highly recommended.

Matthew Kaddatz

Working with Daniel changed my whole opinion of real estate agents. He went above and beyond at every step, was always on the lookout for deals, and helped us find a great house when other Realtors had told us it would be impossible with our parameters. He never gave up and was always on our side. He never tried to ‘sell’ us on anything, never pushed something that wasn’t right. He gave us honest feedback and advice all the time and stuck with us on a search that lasted over six months. Without Daniel, I think we would have given up and called it quits; with him, we found a great house at a fantastic price. Thanks for everything Daniel!
