Love this guy. We started the process of exploring our options months before we were going to be able to actually start the loan process, and he completely understood our situation and didn't mind coming in to Maricopa weekend after weekend to show us listings and what to expect when the time came. When it finally came time to pull the trigger we felt empowered and capable to make a smart choice, based on the quick education Sam was able to impart.

Sam was a great help! Was willing to come show us houses whenever needed, worked with the home inspector to find all flaws in the home prior to purchase, and reviewed all of the required paperwork I had to sign. I would highly recommend him.

Sam was amazing through the whole process as our buyer's agent. He knew the area well, gave us information regarding problems with particular locations (water issues, travel time due to train tracks, etc.). He gave us all the information we needed to make an informed decision. He even got us a home for about 10% less than our anticipated purchase price. The seller's agent in our case was exactly the opposite, and took an exceedingly long time to get necessary documents, didn't communicate with the seller (I actually talked to the seller face to face two days after we had submitted an offer and her agent hadn't yet told her). Sam did everything he could to light a fire under the guy to get us closed in 30 days. Thanks to his persistence, we closed it in 28. He worked with us to get all the forms filled out even though we lived an hour away and had to handle a lot of it via email and fax. He was in communication with us daily, had our appointments lined up with the title agency, inspectors, etc. well in advance and at times when we were available to make the drive. He did everything we asked of him and more. If I ever buy or sell a home again, Sam will definitely be the person I call. If everyone in the Real Estate business was as thorough and motivated as Sam, people wouldn't feel so intimidated when they bought a home. Make Sam your agent and let him exceed your expectations!

My husband and I recently purchased our first home and am so happy we chose Sam as our realtor. Buying a home can be very stressful and Sam's honest, professional attitude made the process much easier. He was extremely involved and answered any and all of my questions. He even gave some great recommendations for home inspectors and mortgage brokers. I would recommend Sam to anyone looking to buy or sell a home - his knowledge of the marketplace will give you the advantage and you'll have the piece of mind knowing you made the best deal possible!

Sam was very professional and patient. Sam and I looked at houses all over the valley, from Queen Creek area to the Buckeye area. Sam always made himself available to me and worked around my schedule. I will be giving Sams name to anyone that who is in the market to purchase, or sell a home.

I have used Sam for three real estate transactions, twice buying and once selling. I see Sam not only as my realtor but also as a teammate in the real estate process. I used Sam when I was a first-time home-buyer and he was very thorough in explaining the buying sequence and what must occur throughout the purchase process. He always welcomed my questions and took the time to teach me, not just rush through the process. I feel that Sam honestly has his clients' best interests in mind. He will make sure that as a buyer your interests are maintained and as a seller that you are able to obtain top-dollar for your home. He was very meticulous throughout both the buying and selling transactions, constantly engaging the other party's realtor to ensure that all steps are progressing. To put it simply, Sam is the guy that you want in your corner.

Sam really went the extra mile to ensure that my deal went through. He was always very responsive and easy to contact. He always answered his phone or returned my calls shortly, even after-hours.

As a first time home buyer, Sam was very informative and helpful throughout my search and eventually, a five month short sale process. He was extremely responsive, recognized and searched thoroughly for what I was looking for, and always shared his knowledge and experience which was very useful. I would certainly recommend him to friends/family/anyone looking to buy a house, whether it is their first time in the market or not.

My wife and I just purchased a home in Chandler. We live out of state and had a very compressed schedule for our search. Sam was extremely responsive to our needs and able to accommodate our tight schedule. Sam's up-to-date market knowledge and wealth of experience allowed us to secure the house we wanted in a multiple offer situation. He was available and helpful throughout the process. We highly recommend Sam.

Sam is the best real estate agent my wife and I have ever worked with over many years of buying and selling homes all over the US. Sam represented us as buyers. He was professional, trustworthy, responsive and dedicated to meeting our needs at every step of the way. We bought a house "long distance;" that is, using the internet to narrow our search and then heading to Phoenix for a period of days where we viewed houses on our short list and made a final decision. Sam went out of his way to help us take care of details before, during and after our transaction to make us feel 100% comfortable and confident even when we couldn't be onsite for closing, walk through etc. You won't go wrong in having Sam represent your interests in a real estate sale or purchase. Thanks Sam for everything you did. Bill and Bev N.

Sam spent time with us to really understand what our criteria was for our new home. He asked a lot of questions and also gave us a lot of answers. After he understood what our requirements were he took us to see a number of properties all of which closely met our needs, we chose a house on the first day of looking. Sam is very knowledgeable about the area and also all the home construction styles, he told us what problems to look for in some properties and what the good points were on others. We had a very pleasant time working with Sam and obtained a very positive outcome in a very short period of time. We very much recommend Sam to be your Realtor of choice.

Working with Sam was a pleasure. I am out of state so things were a bit more complicated than usual. I always felt that Sam was looking out for my best interests. I did not have any contacts in Tempe but Sam certainly did. He helped me find a mortgage broker, insurance agent, inspector etc. All of his contacts where great to work with and very professional. The home I purchased was owned by Freddie Mac and I had heard these type of sales could be painful. Sam worked closely with the listing Agent and made the process simple, easy and quick. Sam always responded quickly to any inquiries I had. We kept in contact via email and phone. I would highly recommend Sam to anyone purchasing a home in Phoenix area.

as out of country purchasers, we relied heavily on sam to take care of all the closing duties, and he did not disappoint us. unfortunately the listing agent was not as concerned about the entire deal as sam was. sam ultimately had to put in a lot more time and effort to ensure a smooth takeover. i am almost certain that we would not have been able to close on this home if we did not have a realtor as committed to our needs as sam was. sam purveyed a level of professionalism that is not common (in our experience) in the majority of realtors.

Sam did a fantastic job. I can't think of anything else he could have done to make my buying experience any better. He was consistently available for questions by phone and he ALWAYS returned my calls very expeditiously. He was available to show me any house I wanted to see from Maricopa to San Tan Valley, and from Gold Canyon to as far South as Queen Creek and Hunt Highway. I have no doubt he'd have taken me anywhere I needed to go to see whatever house I was interested in. I highly recommend Sam to anyone.

Though Sam did not actually help with the transaction he was my first Zip realtor. He sent me listings for several months before we were ready to buy so we could see what the market had to offer. When it came time to buy he put us with Deborah Kind because he felt she was more knowledgeable of the area and of the homes on the market.

I couldn't be more pleased with Sam Parlette as my realtor. He was readily available, forthright, experienced, very helpful, and hard working. It was Sam's follow through and professionalism that made the difference in successfully closing the property. Sam made us money by his ability to know what the market conditions were for our area. I was leery, at first, hiring a realtor from off the internet. Now I know it was the best move I could have made. I would use Sam again without any hesitation.

1. I feel that he didn't have our best interest. He originally didn't want to show us the house we ended up buying because it was on a small lot (that is understandable), but I had a feeling I needed to look at this house. At our first showing of the house, he said "it is probably still on the market because they are only offering 2.5% commission, so realitors aren't going to show it"--this made me believe this was the real reason he didn't want us to look at it. In the same breath, he asked if we did buy it that we waive the ZipRebate. 2. He did not find us one single house to look at. I found every single one of them--I feel I might has well have went and got a realitor license. 3. The communication between him and us was non-existent.

I regret Amanda felt compelled to send a negative review. Out of NEARLY 100 CLOSED CLIENTS with Zip, this is the ONLY negative review I've received. I recommended several houses to visit and communicated throughout the entire process, from visits to offer, and transaction management through closing. My other client reviews speak for themselves.... Sam

Sam even joined me at the mortgage closing to make sure that everything was as promised. Sam made what could have been a scary experience most enjoyable. He never pressured me and always worked around my odd work schedule. Thanks Sam! I live my new place.

As a first time home buyer, in a city fairly new to me, I envisioned this project with both excitement and apprehension. It was a humongous decision for me, abruptly brought on due to sudden changes in living situation, and equally frightening and exhilarating. The search for potential new home was such an experience, bringing on many emotions, at times exhausting both physically and mentally. For example, driving many miles with my realtor to find some ridiculously overpriced "hole in the wall" where I wouldn't even consider putting a stray rat!! I am extremely appreciative of having had the privilege, and good fortune, to be assisted in this endeavor by Mr. Sam Parlette, a gentleman at all times, patient, cordial, positive, great sense of humor, unendingly patient and always serviceable. A true professional, I would describe Mr. Parlette as classy, intelligent, educated, a "gift" at times that were occasionally discouraging and frustrating. Through the good and the bad (and the ugly....), he hung in there with me, tolerating my "not always charming" behavior, answering the zillion questions I needed to comprehend, as I anxiously tried to make sense of the "foreign" language, rules, regulations, legal issues that are part of the real estate industry. He made this experience more bearable when I was losing my patience and getting discouraged, and enhanced the good times (there WERE some hilarious moments -:) by sharing them with me in what I believe was a sincere and caring way. I will, without any hesitation, recommend his services, and consequently ZipRealty's, to any one looking to buy/sell any property. Please feel free to share these comments with Mr. Parlette. We are always so quick at expressing our complaints (am as guilty as anyone else) but assume written words are not necessary when we have received exceptionally good service. I am thrilled to be able to convey my thoughts. Having had careers myself in several service industries, financial, hospitality, legal, I recognize excellence when I see it, and thank you for having the perception to employ staff members of superior caliber.
