Renata is an unbeatable real estate agent. She exceeds expectations and gets the job done with vigor and a meticulous attitude. As my agent, she got me the exact sales figures I was hoping for--and in this market I know that that is practically impossible. She fought for my needs to the very end and kept me informed of every detail along the way. On top of everything else she has a fantastic personality, is very friendly and lively to be around. I have met many real estate agents, and I think Renata is the very best in Apache Junction, AZ.

Carlie and the Lux Home Group team have been excellent in their diligence to not only sell our old homes, but guide us through a new build process. With the market today, we are sometimes confronted with challenges and even let-downs when it comes to lending . Lux treated these circumstances like  their own and were extremely dedicated in making sure that all angles were addressed and performed nothing less than a miracle. We couldn't be pleased more with our new home and the sales of the others.

We were pleasantly surprised that we had multiple offers within 45 days. Emily recognized our goals to move out of state and marketed the house accordingly. She kept in touch frequently and expedited the close. Would highly recommend Emily Duarte as an agent. We also want to recognize Joni Villalobos who helped us with documentation and showings.

As a seasoned real estate investor, I have had the pleasure (sarcastic) of working with numerous real estate agents throughout the country. Finding Carlie was like hitting the real estate jackpot in the Arizona real estate community. She would comp out properties, submit offers and bring me the creme de la creme for my real estate portfolio. If only there was one of her in every state!!!

Renata was very very knowledgable in selling my house. She spent a great deal of time preparing documents and information ahead of time. She was excellent on giving me updates throughout the entire selling process. My house was only on the market 8 days before it sold. I highly recommend using  Renata Kilby as your realtor.

-Bought a home in 2013 in Queen Valley, Gold Canyon, AZ 85118.

Renata is an incredibly easy person to work with, her calm demeanor and professionalism made an inherently stressful process seem manageable and quite painless. Renata know Phoenix area real estate and made herself available on our schedule to look at homes and work through the deal. My wife and I  have worked with other brokers but immediately clicked with Renata. She worked with me to find the house that best fit my needs and she did an absolutely amazing job. Most importantly, she listens to her clients. I never felt like I was at odds with her. This is especially telling since this was my “out of state home purchase”. She is also excellent at negotiation and showed tenacity when it came to getting the house that I had set my sights on. Overall, I’d strongly recommend Renata to my friends, colleagues, and anyone who is looking to make the move to home ownership. Congrats Renata, well done! -Chris

I worked with Renata for the Purchase of a HUD property in San Tan Valley and she was extremely knowledgable about the local market and the HUD buying process. Even the curveballs that the HUD disposition auction tried to throw at her she navigated quickly and effectively helped me land a great  investment property! Renata did a great job during the Purchase as well as keeping in contact afterward. Over the next few years I had a few questions for her and she was very responsive, even when she knew I was just checking the pulse of the AZ Real Estate market. This was what earned my REPEAT business. Renata managed the sale of the same investment property a few years later, and together we teamed up to price it right and get it sold quickly at a good profit. I will use her again for ANY property transaction and I have recommended her to friends and family. I can't give higher praise than that!

-Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $175K in Deer Valley, Phoenix, AZ.

Renata is a true professional of her craft. When I decided to place my house for sale, we first met up to talk about the price, during this meeting she had researched and found the floor plan, builder information, HOA details, area comps, then placed it all in a presentation package for  prospective buyers. During the sale she keep me notified daily of the viewing activity and when offers were placed on my property, she was in constant contact. She is very up front as she does her research and loves her job. I appreciate the short time I spent with her selling my house and I could not have done it without her. I would highly recommend Renata in any house sale or purchase.

Under Contract with in 2 weeks!

My wife and I had a wonderful experience with Carlie. I was offered a job out of state and we wanted to try and sell our house quickly. We met with Carlie and she was confident we could sell our home within the time frame we were looking for. We had a signed agreement of sale within 2 week of our home being on the market. Carlie helped us every step of the way and didn't miss a single detail. We were even able to relocate before closing and Carlie was able to be there in our place. We sold our home quickly, for more than our asking price. I couldn't be more pleased.

-Brian and Gabrielle Wilde

The most important decision in the selling process is choosing the right realtor. Carlie and her team got The job done! Our house was on the market for 88 days with another realtor with little activity, weak photos, and no communication. Carlie reached out to us when we took it off the Market. Her confidence and the way she talks about selling homes showed us she was eager to sell ours. She told us it was priced right and we just needed the right buyers. . .less than 2 weeks later we were under contract. If you want your house sold then do it right the 1st time because buying and selling is all about timing and we learned that the hard way. I strongly recommend Carlie and her team!

Emily was very patient and knowledgeable during the buying process. I purchased out of state and we looked at dozens of properties online and submitted numerous offers. Her diligence and knowledge added a great deal of comfort to the process and we found the first (of hopefully many) great properties in a tough, competitive market.

Lux Home Group and Lori Kennedy were amazing to work with. Lori was very helpful. Since I was a first time home buyer, she was really great at going through the whole process with me, keeping me updated all along the way, and ensuring I knew what to expect. It was awesome, and there were no  surprises! She came to showings prepared with listings and was very knowledgeable about the whole process.

Renata did an excellent job for me she made sure that I got into the new listing properties as soon as they were on the market, sometimes within hours of being listed. She made recommendations on my offer to help secure the possibility of getting home she explained every detail about the type of  loan the type of home sale (hud, FHA).I felt completely supported and confident in my purchase. Renata did an excellent job of guiding me through the process and helping me understand what my next steps were.

Highly skilled agent, shrewd negotiator a real gem.

-Kristina and Richard Clements

Renata is an amazing Realtor. To say that she has the home buying process down to a science is an understatement. My husband and I were first time home buyers and had NO CLUE how this process worked or what to expect- so needless to say we had a ton of questions for her. She held our hands every  step of the way and it never felt like we were "bothering" her with all of our questions.

She cares about you and about your home buying experience. My only regret during our home buying process was not listening to her advice regarding lenders. We went with a big bank (Chase) because we bank with them- to us it made logical sense. Renata politely pointed out that Chase is not a mortgage company and thus the process may be bumpy. (oh was she right- super long delays on Chase's end- we were very close to changing lenders midway through the process it was so terrible)

If I could go back in time I would have taken her advice and gone to an actual Mortgage company, where all they do all day long is process home loans. My advice to anyone that is lucky enough to have Renata as their Realtor is to LISTEN TO EVERY WORD SHE SAYS LIKE IT IS LAW- She does this for a living and has your best interests at heart. She will not steer you wrong.

Thank you again Renata! Buying a home is one of the most stressful life experiences and to have someone like you to guide us through it was a blessing.

Sincerely Kristina and Richard Clements

Carlie listed our house that had previously been on the market for 8 months and presented an offer to us within 8 days on the market. A day later, she contacted us with news that we now have a great backup offer!! Carlie is positive, confident and extremely knowledgeable about the market!!

January 4, 2016

I had an awesome experience as a first-time home buyer thanks to Carlie. She was super helpful, always returned all our calls promptly and walked us through every step of the way which made it a pleasant experience and less stressful. Even after we bought the house she would still answer our phone calls and any questions we had. You´re the best Carlie!

Renata was terrific in listing and selling our house. She gave us tips on what we should fix and what we didn't need to spend money on, recommendations for service providers and how to get the house ready for showing. She was able to successfully negotiate multiple offers so that we ended up with  more cash than expected. Renata is the BEST!

I had my home listed with another company for 6 months. Not once did they keep me informed or present a buyer. I had decided to let my home go back to the bank when Carlie contacted me.

Super high-energy, smart, savvy, and knowledgeable, Carlie was such a pleasure to work with. As a first time homebuyer, I felt very comfortable asking her questions, and she did a great job walking me through the process. She also gave me sound advice when we hit rough stretches during the process--it really gave me piece of mind. I know, for sure, when I am ready to buy again, I will knocking down Carlie's door again. Thanks so much!

More than Satisfied Clients Buyer 676 W Smoketree St, Apache Junction, AZ 85120 October 28, 2016

-Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $275K in Encanto, Phoenix, AZ.

Emily and her team are hard working, prompt and professional. She also knows a great deal about the selling and buying process. I ended up having a more challenging sale as the buyer was using a VA loan and I live out of state, selling an older home. Despite a quick offer, there were several  hiccups along the way that came from the VA inspection and appraisal process that I would have dealt with myself, but not living in the area prevented it. Emily and Korinna did a great job communicating and were very helpful in coordinating each resolution. Overall they did a great job, although the closing date was extended due to the VA loan issues, which apparently had a bunch of rule changes just before and during the process. The listing went out quickly, and looked fantastic. My only issue was not being given enough information about the closing cost breakdown and the pain of the VA process during offer/counter- offer period. Part of it is hindsight, but they could have done more to inform me about that - I would have been much more firm in negotiating. Other than that, it was a good experience.

We called Renata as we were traveling through Arizona. She had been sending me email updatres of properties for sale. She met us and showed us properties in Solera (San Tan Valley 55+ community). Her knowledge of the noise in homes with yards facing Hunt Hiway kept us from even looking at any of  these properties. She showed us what we could afford and what she thought we would be pleased with. She handled the closing over the phone and computer (from Arizona to Iowa, where we were living). She also sent us video on email to show us the property we had purchased, We could depend on her to make sure everything was done. We were so pleased with everything Renata did for us during the purchase of our home.

She would do her own research if I had questions she didn't have the answers to. All in all a very good experience...  again!

Renata is extremely knowledgeable and relatable. She has the ability to communicate and listen to the buyer/seller in order to help achieve the customers ultimate goal of obtaining or selling their home. Renata helped us to sell our first home in 2006 and she helped us purchase our most recent home  in 2012. Renata has not changed in that period of time! She is very friendly, honest and forthcoming. She was able to maximize the value of the home we sold in 2006 and was able to point us to the home we recently purchased by listening to our needs. I would not use any other realtor

January 4, 2016

-Stacy White

My husband and I became interested in a house I had been watching online and contacted Renata to get more information. Unfortunately the house went off the market. A couple months later, Renata contacted us to inform us the house was back on the market. Thank goodness she remembered us! That  got the ball rolling for what I initially expected to be a long, drawn out and miserable experience. But it wasn't , and this was due in no small part to our realtor. During the whole process, she was available anytime we needed her. She answered all questions and she made sure we knew what was going on and what to expect of the house-purchasing process. What I appreciated most about Renata was that she took the time to go over everything in detail, both in person and via email. Everything was clear with her. Furthermore she made a lot of recommendations (very good ones, too) and kept track of every little thing. She is also networked quite well. She has an impressive list of contacts and she would be able to pull out a name on a whim when necessary. She also managed to get the asking price of the house lowered due to some maintenance that needed to be done on the house. Since purchasing a house wasn't something my husband and I were familiar with, we were lucky we had Renata to guide and get us through the process. At the end, we got the house that we wanted and now looking back on the whole experience, I cannot imagine doing it without her by our side. We highly recommend her!

-Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $125K in Mesa, AZ.

I am a woman of Faith, so when it was time to put my mother-in-laws house on the market, I prayed that God would direct me to the Perfect Realtor for me. I had long time friends with Keller Williams, but they had retired. I knew I wanted to use Keller Williams because of the Faith of their  Founders. So...God led me to the sweetest, kindest woman ever...., Renata Kilby. The first time I spoke to her, I told her I needed the most aggressive agent to sell our mother's home as fast as possible. (we were making the extremely hard decision to place mom in a Long Term Care Facility). Within one week, we signed papers to place the house on the market....the VERY day we placed it on the market, Renata brought 2 investors, one wrote an offer immediately (cash offer, over the listing price). I knew she was gonna be great....but didn't realize HOW FABULOUS! She had been working behind the scenes even before getting it on the market!! What an awesome agent!! By getting the sale so fast, I had only one weekend to have an estate sale and remove EVERYTHING from the home, which was 30 years of living life in that house. It was overwhelming, and Renata was with me through it all. Coming and checking on me. Placing ads on Craigslist and Facebook for me...re-freshing those ads and placing new ones. We had a little hiccup during the escrow process...and Renata worked quickly, professionally, and did not stop until it was corrected. We funded on the 6th day from receiving the offer!!!! She is by far, the most talented, sweetest, compassionate and aggressive agent I have ever worked with. I was a Realtor in the mid 90's....and I worked with many many Realtors....none can't even hold a candle to the brilliant flame of Renata. Keller Williams is blessed to have her. I just love her to pieces. She will always be my "go to" whenever my family, friends or if I just even hear of someone needing a Realtor. God Bless Her!! Our Family loves her! -Sherry

-Lisa Wall

I had more than an exceptional experience with Renata!!!! My interaction started with Renata when she sent me listing for a year and a half, so I could research what I wanted, so when I was ready to buy I knew what was out there. She continued to touch base with me to see if I had any questions  or if I needed any additional support. When I was finally ready to buy it felt like Renata dropped everything to help me look at anything on a whim. She was ALWAYS on time and would respond via, text, email or phone within minutes. I am also in the mortgage business, so therefore, I expected excellence and that was exactly what she delivered. After I found my dream home, I trusted Renata so much with the transaction, I was honored to allow her to sell my departing residence and also referred her to my mother to buy and sell her home. She is one in a million… when you have a million realtors to choose from. Choose wisely you need a realtor like Renata who is fast, extremely friendly and VERY knowledgeable!!!! Have fun hunting for your dream home!!!! Lisa W.

We unhesitatingly recommend Renata and will go to her again for any reality transaction. -Mario
