"I am so thankful I have Ed, Jeannette and Lindsey to take care of the Sedona property. Greatly appreciated I assure you. Just do what you need to do to get it closed and let me know, as Lindsey did today, of action I need to take."
— Irvin Ashley"
Ed and Jeanette spent many hours with us over several trips to visit potential houses and surrounding areas. They knew the locales and were able to provide information to help us make an informed decision. Attention, follow through, and after-purchase assistance were excellent. We will certainly recommend them to others we know.
—K Barclay (published Zillow 5/5 Star Review)
I cannot begin to tell you how grateful we are to have met Jeanette Sauer. From our first conversation to the close of our Flagstaff townhouse, the entire process was easier than deciding what to make for dinner…and I'm not exaggerating. We found Jeanette through a referral (Thank you, Todd!), and when I looked at her listings I wasn't sure she would be interested in listing our little place. Boy was I wrong! She didn't skimp on anything, from the professional photographer, marketing materials, and most importantly her excellent service--it was all top notch. She was getting calls on our place before it was officially on the market because of her dedication to us. I could go on and on about the quality of service Jeanette provided, but why don't you just find out for yourself! I promise she will not disappoint! — Lalia9 Zillow 9/4/16
Ed found us a place in one day and made the process so easy for us. In addition he went above and beyond realtor duties to help us with other items. We work with a lot of realtors and Ed and his staff are a 10 on a scale of 1 to 10.
—Linda and Steve
You both make it very easy to want to work hard for you and your clients as a builder, because you’re the kind of people guys like myself pray for, but seldom have the chance to have a relationship with. I couldn’t be more blessed than I am being able to work alongside and for both of you. In the world of real estate, you’re one of a kind, and I cherish our relationship!
I love how we communicate, and work together.
—Jim Lawler, Lawler Construction Sedona & Cottonwood
Ed and Jeanette, you have been so great as well, this was really hard to make the decision to sell. You never lost your cool with us and we appreciate the help in closing this difficult decade of our life. We are so grateful you were both so incredibly professional when our inspection on our home wasn’t perfect and you didn’t lose the buyers! Thank you so much.
I grew up in a real estate investment and management family. I can attest that Ed Pennington has unique qualities that place him far above rest in the field of real estate. He is knowledgeable about construction and market value and he is expert in communication and negotiation. He gets it! He guided us to our dream home 7 years ago which we continue to deeply value and care for with a sense of pride and joy. Ed's background in construction gives him added value for selecting quality built homes. His business background qualifies him to assess current value and investment potential. His knowledge of the market in Sedona and the surrounding community is unparalleled. You can rely on his judgment, integrity and sincerity as we did when he helped us fine our dream home seven years ago.

Working with Ed isn't much like "work"- it's far more like good conversation on a long hike."

Ed Pennington was our buying agent for two property purchases in Sedona - he understood what we were looking for, and identified the challenges. He has tremendous patience and never pressured us. Ed is a very honest, skillful and knowledgeable negotiator and made the process as low stress and enjoyable as possible. He is an excellent communicator for both sides. There were no surprises or disappointments. We got exactly what we were looking for and now have a fabulous mid-century modern historic house on a fantastic Sedona lot. Our buying experiences were as pleasant as we could hope for.
—Steve Eilenberg, MD and Marie Tartar Eilenberg, MD
I can't thank you enough Ed for everything you did for me during the house buying process. It was quite an experience and you always looked out for my best interest. You had my back through bad Sellers dishonest banks. When I finally found the right house, you saw everything through. The bottom line is that you are honest and loyal to your clients and you absolutely earned my respect and trust. You are the best at what you do.
—Robert A. Lane, Ravishing Robert Productions, Crimson Lane Experiences, RRP Films - Los Angeles, CA
Ed is a top notch professional and a consummate gentleman - he went way beyond the call of duty to be helpful when I was his client, and I'm now proud to call him my friend.
—Jason from Japan
Mere words are simply inadequate to express the breadth (excellence across the board) and depth (perfect attention to even the smallest detail) of my profound respect and admiration and continuing gratitude for the professional set of real estate, building, construction and remodeling skills--and the complete trustworthiness of personal qualities as well-- that Ed Pennington brought to what I consider a major project in my life! I want to state up front that it would be my personal privilege and pleasure to provide, to any individual interested in Ed's services, a phone or personal interview in which I could elaborate in detail on and answer any specific questions about the richness of my experience with him.
I was fortunate enough to have been brought into contact with Ed by a clinical psychologist with whom I have entrusted, for well over a decade now, guidance on every conceivable dimension of my life. When this adviser learned of my interest in making a retirement move from Chicago to Sedona, the adviser said he knew a realtor "with whom I could trust my life"! His amazing statement of confidence came directly from the personal experience of my adviser and his wife, over many years, in entrusting with Ed their own dream of purchasing a plot of land and a house in the Red Rocks of Sedona to accommodate an eventual retirement move from the Chicago area to Sedona. Accordingly, I knew that I could put myself in Ed's hands without any reservation or anxiety whatsoever.
I had never in my life been to Sedona. And I had only a couple of days to do my on-location research. Ed arranged all details of my 36-hour visit to Sedona. He was meticulous in addressing every detail of my life as I tried to envision it in Sedona. I produced for Ed an extensive list of desiderata which I assumed no one individual could address! Ed happily proved me wrong! Before we reached the middle of my 36-hour first taste of Sedona, Ed had already taken me to a property that met my impossibly rigorous set of requirements! I knew within my first few hours with Ed that he had miraculously identified a home that made my heart sing. More than that--he had already envisioned a list of remodeling objectives that would result in a property that would far exceed the specifications I had started with. I was so completely impressed with Ed in every way that I was able to get immediately on the airplane back to Chicago-- with instructions to Ed to make an offer on the house, with the understanding that if he was successful in getting me the best possible value for my money, he and I would proceed right away to his remodeling list.
The long and the short of it is that I was able to entrust to Ed's expert judgment every detail of the purchase, and the complete remodeling of the home, without ever returning to Sedona until my actual move-in date! Ed was able to intuit precisely what I would love--as well as to intuit dimensions that I had not yet imagined, but for which I remain so grateful every single day as I enter my second year as happy homeowner.
I look forward to the opportunity to expand in great detail on this necessarily brief testimonial for any individual interested in learning more from me about this superb professional and this extraordinary human being so steeped in integrity and honesty and dedication to exceeding all client expectations.
—Deborah from Chicago, IL
We enjoy working with you and your professionalism. Your clients are always a pleasure to deal with and you make their buying & selling experience a pleasurable one. Everyone is always well informed in your transactions and that is the key to closing them.

I am amazed at the breath & depth of Ed Pennington's sphere of influence in the Sedona real estate market. I just recently sold a property listed by the Ed Pennington and the service and care I was given was over and above what you would normally image that you would receive. Without hesitation I recommend Ed to work with Sellers & Buyers whenever I get the chance.

Dealing with Ed as my agent could not have been better. His knowledge and expertise about the Sedona area is just great. It was a pleasure working with him and his team throughout the entire process of listing and selling my home. Five star rating for sure. Would definitely recommend Ed Pennington.

Ed Pennington has been my realtor for 12 years. I have bought two homes and sold another with his guidance. He and his team are the best! One major advantage of buying with Ed, is his background in residential construction.

Our experience with Ed Pennington was one of the best experiences we've had in the years that my wife and I have bought and sold real estate. Ed has a keen insight into his market which makes the entire process go smoothly. A prime example of how smoothly this process was is that it was only a matter of two months from the time we walked into his house to engage him to represent us until escrow closed on the sale of our house.
Ed and his team were incredibly supportive and helpful to us in all aspects of the sale of our house. My wife and I recommend Ed Pennington wholeheartedly.

I am an architectural designer who has been honored to be on HGTV many years. Selling homes is a way of life for me. For two decades my firm has been beautifully cared for by the most respected and successful realtors in the Paradise Valley, Az. vicinity. When we came up to Sedona to do a major design project we were in the unusual position of having to look for a new real estate group to sell our finished product. Several people including National Bank of Arizona recommended Ed and now I know why they did.
He is a gentleman and an experienced business man in his own right. He is respected and trusted by other luxury realtors here in the Sedona area which as anyone who deals in this field knows, means a great deal.
Ed has lived in Sedona for many years and knows the area intimately. His staff is enormously supportive and likeable. Unusual attention to the needs of the seller and the buyer compliment his business acumen and create a seamless professional atmosphere. I truly appreciate the time invested in selling our real estate and the care that is taken to see that it is done impeccably. I highly recommend him to everyone.

As an owner of a real estate company whose customers are clients of Ed's, I can tell you that Ed's clients close on their transactions and are happy to have had Ed as their Realtor - whether they were the buyer or the seller. Ed brings a diverse and successful career to the relationships he has with his clientele. Ed is as communicative and on top of his transactions as any agent in Northern Arizona and his team of professionals provide exemplary service. Ed knows his market and how to close the deal - equating to happy clientele transaction after transaction.

Ed Pennington represented us in the recent sale of our home in Sedona. We originally chose Ed to represent us because of friends and business associates who highly recommended him to us. We now fully understand why these people held him in such high regard.
During the entire time of our listing and throughout the escrow process, Ed and his professional team, demonstrated excellent knowledge, expertise, professionalism and courtesy in every situation. Our home was a unique property that required an agent who could explain the complexities of our property and instill confidence in the buyer. With Ed's knowledge of residential construction, along with his in-depth knowledge of luxury real estate transactions, he managed the sale of our home with great expertise.
My husband and I have been involved in the real estate business for over 340 years. Ed Pennington rates at the top of our list for his professionalism and expertise. We highly recommend Ed, along with his team, to anyone who is seeking a top-level agent to represent them in the Sedona area.
