“We live in Boston and we owned an investment condo we bought in 2005 within walking distance to Old Scottsdale shops and restaurants. We were interested in finding a realtor knowledgeable in the local area to help us sell the property. Gene was well informed on the area, local comps/statistics and motivated to move fast on our property which are exactly the qualities we were looking for. We anticipated having to make a trip down to Phoenix to get things moving but Gene handled everything for us from having the place cleaned and painted to being listed. The property was sold within the first week of listing! We could not have wished for a more professional and competent realtor. My wife and I highly recommend him.”

“The marketing package you presented to us was most professional.  As soon as we are ready to sell, you will be hearing from us.”

– J.J., McCormick Ranch Resident

Gene is a phenomenal real estate agent. Professional – he knows his trade, his market, and the people. Responsive – fast return phone calls and emails to us and to  prospective buyers and their agents. Technology Utilization – uses new technology to buy and sell real estate FASTER and BETTER than everyone else. Over the course of six months, Gene helped buy and sell homes for myself and 2 of my coworkers – all with flawless execution and fantastic results.”

– N.M., North Phoenix homeseller


“Gene is a great agent and a great person. Of all of the agents I have worked with over the years buying homes, Gene by far was the best agent. I highly recommend him.”

– J.S., MD., Biltmore Corridor homebuyer

“Gene did a tremendous job helping my parents and I sell our family home that we had resided in for years. He was extremely kind, patient and knowledgeable about the area and the market. He told us precisely what we needed to do to go about selling our home and was always available to us when we needed him. Especially when we had questions about the home, showings, documents, etc., he made himself available for us. I would definitely use Gene again in the future. I do not think you can find many realtors who are as dedicated to their field and as honest as Gene. He will tell you exactly like it is and that is what I appreciated most about him. Honesty, unfortunately is not something you get often nowadays, so it was refreshing. I wholeheartedly recommend Gene for anyone selling a home or purchasing a home. He made the process seamless.”

-M.C., Park Scottsdale homeseller

“Thank you Gene so much for all you have done to sell my home. Since I was moving out of state before putting it up for sale, I knew that I needed someone special who would throw all their support behind the sale. And I knew that would be you. I chose wisely and I would be happy to serve as a reference.”

– D.P., McCormick Ranch Seller

“Honest, efficient, nice, and very tech savvy which made selling my company’s property a joy. I have sold lots of real estate in my life and this experience was as smooth as ever – the best. I definitely recommend Gene.”

– T.T., Downtown Phoenix investor

“We had a couple of properties in Scottsdale and Gene did an great job of getting the property ready. His marketing generated numerous offers and we closed without a hitch both times. I highly recommend Gene for REO sales.”

– D.K., Asset Manager

“We hope you know how much we appreciate everything you’ve done!! Literally every morning and night we both look at each other and one of us says, “We’re in a house!! We live in a house, and we’re not renting it!!” Couldn’t have done it without you!”

– P.J. & A.H., First-time homebuyers

“Thank YOU! You were totally awesome to work with, and I’ll forever refer people to you if ever anyone asks for references. Thanks for all of your support and for being so proactive.”

– N.M., relocation seller

“Thanks for getting this sold at top dollar AND sold so quickly. Excellent job, as always!”

– S.D., Asset Manager

“Gene was extremely helpful with the listing and worked very hard to accommodate all parties. His professional approach is reinforced by his pleasant and honest relationship with all parties. He was referred to me by a friend and I would do the same for anyone.”

– Jim Meadows, Phoenix homeseller

“Gene was a pleasure to work with on a day by day basis during my search for a home. As a first time buyer he was extremely thorough in explaining to me the purchasing process/stages in advance and along the way. While working with Gene it became evident that he truly cares for his client’s personal well being, financial security and future in their home. There were several times that I was in love with a home and ready to make an offer on it. However Gene luckily talked me out of these decisions with his insight of the home location (e.g., neighborhood value, nearby major roadways/noise), potential for future resale value and current market conditions. Now that I’ve found the perfect home I’m happy that he was so honest and straightforward with me on those other homes. Never once did I feel pressured to make a decision at any moment. Another aspect that really helped me when working with him was that he can be very tech savvy. This is important to me as a young professional with a busy career, as sometimes I could not escape the office as quickly as I needed to, especially during the closing process. I was able to electronically sign a large portion of my documents and simply email them back over to him. This made my life significantly easier considering all the other work that goes into purchasing a home. I was referred to Gene by my father and would most certainly recommend him to any further family or friends that are in need of an honest hard working real estate professional. I can promise that you won’t regret using Gene.”

– A.S., South Scottsdale homebuyer

“I’m happy to provide a reference for you. You get my vote!

– T.C., Scottsdale Luxury Home Seller

“Whether we buy, sell, or lease with Gene Montemore we know we’re getting an agent that will get the job done right the first time. He is truly dedicated to helping his clients get a fair deal each time. Putting a home on the market is stressful enough, but with Gene guiding us through the process the outcome is seamless. That is why we keep going back to him as our agent! Gene is the real deal!”

– Brian & Susan Jones, Scottsdale on their repeat business

“…You are one of the best brokers I have ever worked with.”

– A.R., Asset Manager

“Gene is not only an ultimate real estate professional, he also makes a client feel their wants, needs and likes are important to the search. He is very accessible always replying promptly, and does his best to answer all questions and concerns in a thoughtful, informative manner. In addition, if asked, his input is objective and well thought out. House hunting with Gene was a pleasure, as well as locating a great place for my new home.”

– C.R., McCormick Ranch homeseller and homebuyer

“He wanted the name of our best in the Scottsdale area. I could only think of you.”

– G.D., on providing a referral

T.S., a client I’ve “courted” for several years who was impressed by a recent email campaign

“My husband and I were extremely fortunate to have Gene as our realtor. He was very patient, made us feel like we were his top priority and kept us positive during our search when we were losing hope. Gene always had our best interest in mind, including suggesting other options when he thought we could find a better match. He made the entire process very simple and gave us great confidence in buying our first home. He is very professional, personable, honest, responsive, knowledgeable and a great guy. It was a pleasure working with him! I strongly recommend Gene to be your first and only call when looking for your home.”

– N.R-D. & E.D., McCormick Ranch homebuyers

“We had a great experience purchasing our McCormick Ranch home with Gene & Gary! There were very easy to work with; responsive, available, professional, knowledgeable, and friendly. We would recommend them to anyone who is looking to buy, sell or simply have questions regarding the real estate market.”

S.A. & A.A., McCormick Ranch homebuyers

“Thank you Gene for such a pleasant & seamless experience.  I have been so impressed by your professionalism and level of service.”

– T.S., McCormick Ranch homeseller

“I’d like to give a huge shout out to Gene Montemore at Real Living Success Realty who managed to sell our home while tenant-occupied, and close 11 days after the tenants of 2 years moved out. If you need to sell a home in McCormick Ranch or Scottsdale I would highly recommend him. And the fact that we closed on Friday the 13th is even sweeter! Thank you Gene!”

– S.J. & B.J., McCormick Ranch homesellers

“Gene is the best! I first came in contact with him in early 2012 when I was having issues with my rental property in Phoenix. I decided to rent my home when I moved to San Diego in 2011 and being a landlord was not what I anticipated. Gene happily ran comps for me several times throughout the year and instead of pushing me to sell my house at the wrong time, he was very honest about likelihood of a sale at that given point. He would check in with me every 6 months or so (perfect because I knew I had a professional watching out for me but not often enough for me to feel pressured) to see what my current situation was and help me decide the right timing. My time finally came! Less than 3 days listed, Gene brought me an offer and less than 5 days I had a signed contact! I am so thankful for Gene’s wisdom and skills as a real estate agent. My house closed in 36 days from the original listing to the recorded deed. Gene made selling my house a breeze and didn’t get annoyed by all my questions! I unfortunately didn’t get the pleasure to meet Gene in person since I live in San Diego but the whole transaction was done electronically which was great! I would recommend Gene to anyone that is looking for an agent. He is honest, patient, great at negotiating and a pleasure to work with!”

– A.O., Reluctant Landlord

– S.K. & K.K., McCormick Ranch homesellers

“Gene knows the market, helped us figure out a realistic price and got it sold quickly. Thanks to Gene for doing some tough negotiations on our part and getting us the cash we needed out of the sale.”

– J.H., Scottsdale home seller
