Team Azzi you're an amazing team... Thank you for staying on top of everything and keeping the process smooth and professional.

Union Bank

Jordan and Tony were my agents for a 1031 exchange… (Jordan) went above and beyond his duties to make sure we closed… My exchange property is out of state and he guided me through everything since this was all new to me. It was the easiest real estate transaction I’ve ever had. Even now after
