Far West Realty in Prescott AZ - Homes for Sale | Buy Land | Property Management
5 out of 5 stars Dave Hamill at Far West Realty was my property manager on a single family house for several years. As an out-of-state owner, I relied on Dave for everything: tenant selection, lease negotiation, recovery when a former tenant didn't pay the last month's rent, cleaning, maintenance, marketing, managing repair work, etc. Dave and his team were always professional, courteous, competent, and just nice people. I wholeheartedly recommend them!

5 out of 5 stars I have been using Far West to manage my rental in Prescott Valley for approximately 7 years. I live out of the area know that things are being taken care of. I have complete faith in Dave and his team in the oversight of my property. They are thorough and very prompt in any given situation. I love the fact that I know that the house is being taken care of with TLC. You can't put a price on piece of mind and that is exactly how I benefit from using them. I would strongly recommend using Far West for your management needs. You will not be disappointed.
