There aren't enough kind words that I could even muster up to say about Jonas Funston. Over the past few years, Jonas has worked with me to secure multiple properties and it has changed my life for the better. I am extremely grateful to have met someone that is so in tune with my goals and knows the ins and outs of what I'm looking for. The home-buying experience, as most know, is tiring and cumbersome and frustrating. However, having a pro like Jonas and an amazing crew like all the awesome people at epicPHX is the ultimate recipe for success. I'm counting down the days until I get to work with the crew all over again! Thank you!

If you're looking for someone to help with finding a home in the greater Phoenix area, look no further than Brian and the epicPHX team! He is extremely knowledgable of the area and his expertise to get an offer accepted in an incredibly competitive market is second to none. When I was initially looking into moving to the Phoenix area, I had absolutely no idea about what areas were good, bad, etc. I was initially looking for a rental and stumbled across a short-term rental and Brian was the renting agent. He explained it was a short-term rental and wouldn't work for us, but asked about what I was looking for and provided some great guidance right away. I have a Doberman, which made finding a rental nearly impossible, but Brian connected me with Ashlea on his team. After struggling to find something on my own, Ashlea was able to find a few houses for rent and checked them out on my behalf. She instantly built trust when she went to first house and shared her candid feedback about the condition of the house and its undesirable location. We had almost signed a lease to this house, but she luckily found another place that seemed like a perfect fit for us and helped us secure the rental sight unseen. Of course, the place was exactly as she had described and worked out very well for us. Eventually we did decide we wanted to buy a home out here, so got back in touch with Brian. As first-time homebuyers, my wife and I were nervous about the process and no clue what to do, but Brian was extremely patient in explaining the process and helping us along every step of the way. He took us around to quite a few homes, sharing his candid feedback about each and every one. I also sent over tons of homes that we didn't look at, as he knew they were bad areas or a bad fit for us. We went on a weekend to drive-by a few of these on our own and WOW, was he right! We finally found a house that we loved and he helped us structure a competitive offer that was accepted pretty quickly. The buying process was extremely smooth and Brian guided us through everything. He also provided several recommendations for contractors, handymen, etc for small projects we wanted to do once we bought the house. We can't thank Brian, Ashlea, and the epixPHX team enough for all that they have done for us! If/when we buy another home or investment property in the area, they will be the first call.

If you want to sell your home, then Jonas is your man! He understands the market, the micro market and everything in between. Jonas has a no-nonsense approach and doesn't waste anyone's time. Buyer or Seller. He's respectful, a strong negotiator and gives regular updates. My condo sold after just a couple of days on the market for 20K over asking. Look him up and his recent sales! That's how I found him! 😉 You will not disappointed...I'm thrilled to have worked with him and am now living my dream! Thank you Jonas!

Jonas and his expert team were wonderful to work with. Given the stress of purchasing a home, especially out of state, it was comforting to have Jonas to consult with, day or night, on the fairness of pricing and coming up with an effective bid that placed us in the best position for success. He epitomizes many years of expertise and great customer service. We would trust working with Jonas again on buying a future home, and would wholeheartedly recommend him and his team to friends and family.

Mike was very responsive, knowledgeable of the area (we had a very wide area), reliable, and honest throughout the entire process. I wouldn't buy another home without him, and I will be recommending his services to anyone in need. I also had the fortune of selling a home through Mike. The process was stress free!

Jonas is an absolutely amazing realtor and person! He’s helped us and other family members purchase and sell multiple properties. The last transaction included a purchase the was contingent on the sale of our home. We were not even looking but fell in love with a property that came on the market. He some how pulled it off. Under contract on new property in 4 days (this includes using his team to get us prequalified), and under contract in 4 days on selling current property at well over asking! If you need a realtor, Jonas is it! Don’t hesitate to use him for anything!

It was a pleasure working with Jonas. He listened to our needs and worked with us to find the perfect home. When it was time to make the finishing touches on our new home, Jonas had a list of outstanding contacts. Jonas provided excellent care and service from beginning to end. We would highly recommend him to assist in you in your next home purchase.

I came to Sun City to prepare my father's home for sale and decided to see about buying a vacation property while I was here. Brian only showed me homes that met the criteria I had established when I contacted his office. I only needed half a day of looking and made an offer on the one I liked best. I closed less than one month later and couldn't be happier! Brian has also been very helpful in giving me contractor referrals for the repair of my dad's house. I expect to doing more business with him in the future.

Jonas was AMAZING from beginning to end. Being in the industry we expect excellence from our peers and Jonas checked every box and then some. His communication was outstanding and he went above and beyond, especially because I was purchasing from out of the area. I definitely recommend Jonas and his entire team you will be in great hands!

Brian is by far the best realtor I have worked with. I started looking for homes with another realtor and was given false information that I almost took as truth. I talked to Brian and he gave me real information I could use to make my decision. Had I not found Brian I would’ve bought a different property in an undesirable area that I was second guessing. It’s been 3 months since my purchase and Brian has still been helping me out and giving me great advice. Not only is Brian an amazing real estate agent but he’s a great guy as well. I’ll never buy another Arizona property from anyone but Brian.
