About Marc Stanley
Work PhilosophyBreaking it all down, real estate is business, financials and emotions. For clients of Better Prescott Homes, you will find that I have an extremely high level of patience and make myself available to you seven days a week. I fully understand that for most individuals, buying a home can be the single-most stressful event in their lives and it is important to me that clients feel comfortable working with us during the sales process.
For those who do not know me, this is not a part-time job. On average, my work week is between 60 and 80 hours and it is the only profession that I am currently focused on. For our clients, this means that you are not only hiring a group of experienced agents when working with Better Prescott Homes, you are working with agents who take their job seriously and are fully engaged in representing you.
ApproachSome might say that I represent the "artistic" side of the Better Prescott Homes group. What does this mean for home sellers? It means that when you list with us, I'll be spending up to 20 hours of work making your home look better than any other listing in all of Yavapai County. For homeowners who permit us to do so, I'll coordinate an on-site photography session which will capture the very best of what your home has to offer and entice potential buyers to visit your home first, before all others.
My photography methods surpass the quality of local professional photographers and employing Better Prescott Homes to list your property ensures that you not only get the very best in listing quality, but that you are represented by agents who have a direct investment in getting your home sold quickly, for the best price possible.

Realtor ©Realtors © are the largest trade association and one of the most powerful lobbying groups in North America, pledged to a code of ethics and standards of practice as adopted in 1913. The association to which I am pledged provides an ethics blueprint of which an agent is held personally responsible to uphold. This designation signifies my commitment to quality, fiduciary principles and fair handling of buyer / seller correspondence.
Certified Negotiations ExpertRepresenting a client requires a deeper understanding of the negotiation process and having a firm understanding of what makes a person motivated to buy or sell real estate. Agents who represent those clients need to know the ins and outs of such emotions and driving forces behind these actions. The CNE designation represents a commitment to leveraging these aspects of high-dollar transactions in ways which will benefit my clients financially. Expediting the sales process while ensuring my client receives the best possible financial outcome is the pinnacle of a CNE-certified agent.

"You did an outstanding job at figuring out how to fit us in for showings around your incredibly busy schedule. And, when you said you would meet us you were always prompt. And, you were great at staying in touch via email and you knew when it was better to call and talk. And, you had instant answers to like 95% of our questions and when you didn't you would in a very timely manner get back to us with the answer. You were friendly and easy to get along with. And, you were very very patient with us. Finally, but not least, you did a great job at guiding us through the whole start to finish process of buying the home."

Ruth & Bob
"Very patient and helpful. Not pushy. We are recommending to neighbors & friends. Like low key attitude and sincerity."
"Outstanding proactive communication was probably the best part of my experience with Marc. Any issue that arose was analyzed and different options were discussed, with a strong recommendation of which (option) was to proceed. Being prepared to recommend letting a purchase go rather than letting a buyer make a mistake is the epitome of professionalism and a testament to his unparalleled dedication to customers as individuals making life-altering decisions, and not just numbers."
