"We hired O'Keith to sell our home this past year. Not only did he sell our home in 9 days, he connected us with a mover that we were thrilled with. He also found us an interim home in 2 days! I would recommend O'Keith for selling or renting your property. He is professional and committed to making the entire experience memorable. I will never forget how this all pulled together. He is a person of high integrity and we had great results. Our neighbor reached out to him, once he saw how fast we sold our home! If you are moving to Phoenix, AZ., I would give O'Keith a call 623-224-7956"
