Phoenix, Arizona-based Realtor Claire Ackerman has her finger on the pulse of her local market, and has been providing her grateful buyers and sellers with top-of-the-line customer service since 2005. Claire’s deep well of industry knowledge goes hand in hand with her winning, authentic personality to create an exceptional real estate experience for anyone lucky enough to work with her.
Claire, who has been in the real estate industry for seventeen years, found her way to the world of real estate via a former career working in the title and escrow field. Originally from Maryland, she worked for title companies both there and in Atlanta before relocating to Arizona in 2005, where she obtained her real estate license and hit the ground running. Claire’s exceptional work ethic, coupled with her commitment to truly putting her client’s best interests front and center, translated into a career that began to thrive almost immediately and has shown no sign of slowing down. Currently, 65% of her business is based on repeat and referred customers, perhaps one of the surest indicators that she is providing excellent guidance to her buyers and sellers.
As Lead of The Ackerman Team at North & Co. Real Estate by Trade, Claire oversees an equally-dedicated staff of five other agents, all of whom share her client-first business ethos. “We treat our clients as if they’re our family,” says Claire. “We are extremely dedicated to them, making sure they understand the process as they move through the transaction. We treat them more as family than as clients. It’s not a ‘one and done’ situation for us, it’s more about creating a lasting relationship with them. I want my team to take pride in always providing value and being their authentic selves with all clients alike.”
The appreciation Claire shows for her clients is obviously reciprocated in full, as is made evident by the impressive number of glowing testimonials she has received on Zillow.com, on which site she is a Premier Agent with a perfect five-star overall rating. Among the many accolades she has received is this one, which perfectly illustrates the gratitude her clients feel for her: “I was so impressed with Claire from our very first meeting…she is super-professional, highly knowledgeable and proactive regarding every single detail that could possibly come up, a true advocate and helper to make everything work out perfectly for a home purchase. If there were Oscars for real estate agents I am sure Claire would be called onstage! I have worked with other agents in the past, and no one comes close to Claire in expertise and dedication to ensure the best possible purchase experience.”
Claire’s approach to marketing is both thorough and cutting-edge, resulting in quick sales for top dollar. Presenting each listing it its best light is of paramount importance, and she and her team make sure each property is photo-ready before it is viewed by potential buyers. Professional photography is utilized exclusively, and 3D tours are also employed. A robust online and social media presence ensures the home is seen by as many eyes as possible, and individual website are created for each listing. Claire’s background in being an off-market specialist means she is also able to bring value to her sellers by utilizing her network and Coming Soon marketing tactics for their home buying before hitting the MLS. Additionally, she is able to bring her buyers unique “first look” properties available for purchase.
“I love helping people,” says Claire with obvious sincerity, when she is asked what has kept her in the real estate industry for this long. “Whether it’s a first time home buyer or an investor, we listen to what they need. And with our sellers, we try to maximize their profit. I work every day to raise the bar as to what a client should expect from a Realtor.”
When she’s not working, Claire enjoys nothing more than spending time with friends, including her boyfriend, who has recently started a polo club. Traveling is another passion, and in addition to weekend getaways, she also tries to visit an international destination once each year. She is also very active in her community, and gives back through a sponsored partnership with a local high school, and donates to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
Claire’s plans for the future include continuing to coach other agents to achieve success, something she has been doing on a national level. Of course, she also plans on continuing to grow her business while enhancing and refining the already-unparalleled customer service that has become her calling card.
