"John is the go to if you're seeking to purchase a house in Prescott. He has deep knowledge of the area, and was a valuable resource for my wife and I during the process from relocating from Ohio. I was especially impressed with how much he remained in contact with us throughout, with at least weekly update emails. Also John will be very honest with his assessment of a house during a walk-through. This was especially refreshing. He was not there to sell a house, but help you find a home."
- Harry and Tina Wagner - Prescott Valley, AZ
"My husband and I are transplants from California and were looking at "dream properties" for many weeks before getting serious about moving to Arizona. While looking at properties, we researched the area as well as real estate agencies and agents. Bloom Tree was rated very high and Theresa had some of the best reviews of any of the other agents listed. Because of this, I contacted Theresa about looking for a house when we came out to the area a couple of weeks later.
Theresa responded quickly and was pleasant on the phone. We had no idea at the time, however, how truly knowledgeable, caring, and professional Theresa was. From the moment we got to Arizona, Theresa took care of us. She listened to what we wanted, told us everything we needed to know about the area, new builds, what to look for, and everything. She was sweet and listened to what we were looking for. She always wanted us to love the house and didn't push houses on is to make a sale. Theresa made it very clear that our happiness was the top priority, and really made us feel like the sale was secondary to finding us the right place to raise our family.
When we went back to California we had to go through a complicated process to sell our house, and Theresa was right there with us. She checked in on us, kept us updated on the process on her end and never made us feel neglected or forgotten. She really is an amazing agent because she is such a genuine and caring person who wants to do what is best for her clients.
In the end we not only got a house that our family absolutely loves, but we have a new friend. Our experience with Theresa was so impactful that we can't imagine our life here without maintaining a relationship with her. She is a real gem and I would recommend her to anyone looking for property in the area. She will take amazing care of you!"

"John came to our HOME the SAME DAY we called him asking questions about selling it. Within hours he was at our kitchen table, sharing knowledge and explaining our neighborhood. Since we were the Owners but never fully lived there for 16 years... we did not know the value of our home. He was GOOD. We asked him to take the Job and we sold the home shortly after.
Our home went under contract quickly, with a Government loan that was difficult at every corner we turned!!! John kept us informed, in the loop always and let us make all the decisions regarding the requests etc....I would like to say... this US Gov. loan was all for the Buyers NOT for the Sellers and I personally wanted to fold my cards a few times.
With young inexperienced buyers and I might suggest so was their Buyers Agent... All Sales are different, this was a Challenge. We negotiated several times... and gave them plenty along with the home. John stayed calm, informing and in the end... Everyone was Happy. I would Use John Gorden as an Agent again. He was a pleasure to work with... and we SOLD the home for more than we thought it would ever Sell for...!! Thanks JOHN GORDEN... It was Our Pleasure to Have John Gorden as our Agent!!!! Thanks Again"

"Theresa's was dedicated to getting us our dream home and came up with solutions that we could have never thought about on our own! "
- Will R.
"Mary did awesome job selling my home. Certainly got lots of potential buyers to come and view the home. Handled a difficult situation 1 day before closing when I was ready to throw in the towel and put the house back on the market due to a very demanding buyer. Happy with the price I got for my home, I would recommend Mary."
- Karen, Prescott Lakes
"We have been married 45 1/2 yrs and have moved about 20 times, in different states. We have said many times to each other that of all the realtors we have had, and with my husbands health issues adding to the complexity of buying a home, he is the BEST REALTOR we have ever had. IF we were to move again, we'd chose him in a heartbeat. There is nothing that he could improve on. They usually say one should save room for improvement. Well, there's no room for improvement where our interaction with John Gorden is concerned, a truly caring, knowledgeable realtor. We have been fortunate to have him as our realtor. In fact he is selling our home also for us. We recommend him to anyone looking for a Great Realtor."
- Carol Abell
"We feel very blessed to have been able to work with Theresa. Theresa is a very good communicator and knowledgeable in many areas of her work. She worked diligently on our behalf throughout the entire purchase process; we couldn't be happier!"
- Tom and Paula, Prescott
"I would highly recommend Mary Collins to anyone selling their home. Words cannot fully express my appreciation for all that she did for me in the sale of my home. She was given a somewhat challenging task, but never wavered in her perseverance in seeing it to the end. A highly professional and communicative broker who takes the time and has the diligence to assist their client whenever the need arises. A true go-getter in the real estate market! Thanks again, MC!"
- Julie Montgomery
"John represented both parties and did so very professionally, I would recommend him to interested parties."
- Robert Armstrong
""Theresa is a wonderful realtor to work with! As soon as we contacted her to look into a lot we were interested in purchasing, she was on it. She quickly provided all the information we needed to make an informative decision. Any questions or concerns were addressed quickly and she genuinely put our best interest ahead of her own. Theresa is a skilled negotiator, communicator and networks well with others in the industry. We look forward to working with Theresa infuture endeavors and would recommend her highly to others looking to buy or sell in the tri-city area.""

"Mary was superb! She was familiar with the foothills Dewey area and knowledgeable about wells and septics which proved very helpful since we had tons and tons of questions. Mary kept us updated at all times throughout the process but most importantly she was able to keep an amazing, fair and unbiased balance in acting as agent for both sellers and buyers. Bravo Mary!"
- Gabriel & Elvia, Dewey
"Scot and I wanted to THANK YOU for the great job you did with our new home purchase. Not only did you help us find the perfect home for us, but you were there every step of the way. This was especially helpful as we were living out of state when we made the purchase. We will definitely use you again in the future and also will refer everyone we know who needs a great support system to look you up. You are the best Realtor in the area !!"
- Scot & Debra Burns
"I live CA. sold my house 11-1, called Teresa, I had met her on a trip the previous year. Told her I was coming over to Prescott Valley, AZ., to buy a house. She set up a lot houses which I looked at. She was very patient with me. I ended up buying the first house that day. Teresa got me the house at my price. My house in CA closed 1-30-18, and my house AZ closed 1-31-18. All very quick and efficient. Teresa is very good at her job. And very caring person she will do an excellent job for you. "
- Mrs. Vixen
"We believe Mary Collins was very knowledgeable about the area, she took her time to understand our needs, very accommodating to our schedule since we were relocating from out of state. Went out of her way to take care of details due to the long distance move and timing, for instance made accommodations for our truck and boat to be stored for a few days while we waited for escrow to close. Very knowledgeable about real-estate transactions and process. We would recommend Mary Collins to anyone needing a realtor in the Prescott area.
Please feel free to use our name as a reference to Bloom Tree Realty Prescott and Mary Collins"
- Dennis and Susan Liptak, Prescott Valley AZ
"Dennis and I want to thank you for stepping in and handling the sale of our home in The Foothills. We realize that leaving you there to watch, maintain and sell our home was a real task but you got the job done for us in our absents…Thanks Again."
- Alyce & Dennis Brownridge
"What a wonderful experience I’ve had with Theresa deSoto. She will work with you until you find the right house for you. Her expertise will always be on your side for the Best Buy. She is always upbeat and positive. What a wonderful human being."
"Mary Collins came highly recommended by a mutual acquaintance who lives in Prescott. We had originally contacted another local agent who seemed indifferent to our needs, and thankfully, we contacted Mary at the suggestion of someone who vouched for her. She was prompt and spent many hours with us in setting up appointments to view over 20+ properties, some of which we visited twice. Because we had limited time in the area, she was well prepared with listings that we reviewed together after surveying our wish list and needs - even before we started to drive to each property. Her picnic basket was also a nice touch with snacks and beverages in her vehicle to keep us going, and was very cognizant to our thoughts and wishes. In addition to viewing properties, Mary played tour guide as we drove around points of interest in the area which really helped us quickly learn the area and helped us decide where we wanted to land.
In summary, call Mary Collins if you are buying or selling..."
- Chris & Mary, Prescott
"Yasso and myself are so glad we stopped by the Realty Executives office in Prescott Lakes and found you wandering around inside. You immediately came to our rescue and sat us down and talked about lifestyles and budgets. Then we went out and looked at a few homes and put in an offer on the “short sale from hell”. Well, after five months and no response from the bank we went out looking again and at 8 pm one night we found the “perfect home for us” and in 15 days you had us through inspections and CLOSED…Great job."
- Jerald & Yasso Kliegl
"Definitely not a “pushy sales person” and that means a lot to me. My sister and I were exploring downtown Prescott and just stopped in the office to check out property values, etc. My sister bought first and was very happy with Theresa. That was a good recommendation for me. I have bought and sold a number of properties during my life and have never met an agent who went so above and beyond what is expected in insuring that the purchase of my new home in Prescott Valley went smoothly and that any question or concern I had was fully covered and taken care of. A great agent and I would be very comfortable about recommending Theresa to anyone looking for a trustworthy real estate professional."
- Janet, Norfolk, VA
"Telephoned BloomTree Realty and Mary Collins answered the phone. That started a great relationship with a highly competent agent. Mary was involved in every step of the purchase of our new home, and provided outstanding support. We highly recommend her!!!!!!"
- Bob and Barbara Lodolo, Prescott, Arizona
"John, “way to go”, you found that needle in a haystack and came up with the perfect home for our family. Although a bank owned property, you hung in there and made sure we got through inspections and then you handled the negotiations with the bank to get us a fair credit towards the price of the home. Now, your task is to sell our other home in Williamson Valley."
- Bruce & Lynn Hosler
"Buying a home can be stressful, but Theresa made it enjoyable. And I think that’s why everything went so smoothly. I was truly having a good time looking for my new home."
- D. Nelson
"We’d have to say you really earned your monies worth by finding us the right home in Prescott Valley. I think Tom and myself counted 30+ homes you personally showed us in both cities even with a six month space in between. When we came back from North Dakota in January you again listened to our new criteria and immediately found us the best home that suits our life style and budget “as you always say”."
- Tom Smalley & Myra McKee
We want to thank you so very much for helping us on this journey. We started out not knowing very much about being a homeowner and we were completely prepared after we started working with you.
We are now first time homeowners and we are so excited! You have been such a huge help and a good friend.
- The Thoms
"Theresa has been awesome to work with! She is very helpful and kind. We recommend her to anyone."
- T.R. and Stephanie
"After bringing you into our situation at the last minute you were able to find us a large building to lease after the one we were in got sold. You really had a grasp for what we needed and went “Off The Grid” to find it then a month later you negotiated a great deal on a major investment for my family trust. I really appreciate your tenacity and professionalism."
- Dave Mudrick
I chose Mary because she was very responsive to my internet search for homes. She sent me many listings way before any other agent and sometimes, other agents never sent me some of the things Mary did. Even though she is newer to the business, I felt comfortable that she was very responsive, actively working to help me in my search, I could trush her judgement and she had a good support team.
Being from another state, I felt Mary was really there as my representative and trusted her opinions and trusted that I would get the details. Since I didn't really know what I was looking for, Mary had to be a mind reader and she was! She showed me a good variety of properties that she felt I would be interested in and had a lot of patience since I was quite the real estate novice and she was very thorough in explaining how things worked.
- Carolyn Sherman, Prescott Valley
"We never thought we’d be owning our own home again. You know, after my illness and loss of work we went through some hard times. We wanted to find a home we could enjoy and maybe lease it and instead you arrange for financing for us and found a bank owned property we could afford for less money than leasing."
- Bruce & Shelia Schafer
"Other than our purchase being free, we could not ask for anything other than the high caliber of the service we received from Mary Collins."
- Judi and Mike, Prescott Valley
"Theresa was excellent, thorough and professional. Theresa was well prepared for our visit and did her homework. A consummate professional."
- Tom, Rancho Mirage, CA
"John, as a career military man I’ve been relocated seem like all my life but I’ve never had an easier transition than this last one having you as our Realtor. We sat down and told you what we were looking for then you had use jump in your truck and on the first visit to Prescott we found the home that we described in a neighborhood that really suits our lifestyle. We really appreciate your listening to our needs and finding us what we wanted."
- Joe & Cindy Davis
"Theresa was very helpful and understood our needs. Great experience."
- Patrick, Prescott AZ
"John, We’ve built, bought and sold over a dozen homes and we can’t remember having better customer service than you and Realty Executives gave us. In the middle of a down market for sellers you were able to show potential buyers “Value Added Reasons To Buy” our home at the golf course and bring us a better bottom line than we expected. Please feel free to have any clients contacts us for a reference. "
- George & Shirl Sheatz
"Very dedicated, committed and sensitive to her customers needs. Have never met such a great person before- outstanding!!!"
"John, Carol and I would like to express our gratitude and delight. You made our Prescott house search experience positive in many ways, and we are very happy with the result and our future in Arizona on Mandi Court. We will continue to spread the word about Prescott and a good friend who happens to be in the Real Estate business!. Please forward this as appropriate, especially to anyone who is buying or selling a home. We are happy to be a reference for both you and your company."
- Alan & Carol White
"We worked with Theresa to purchase a home in the Prescott area. She is knowledgeable, personable, accommodating and endlessly patient! Theresa worked with us to find something we’d be happy with in our price range. There was no doubt Theresa had our back through the entire process!"
- Robyn W & Susie K
"John, as a first time investor/landlord we are very pleased with your guidance on representing us as buyers of the fourplex on Hardin street. Spending time with each of the tenants and working with our attorney was what made this deal happen. I know you also represented the seller and we thought that awkward at first but you pulled it off to everyone’s satisfaction."
- Kelley Burnell, Cherry Investors
"Theresa was the main reason we were able to buy our dream home. We were in Prescott long enough to look at the houses and to find one that we really liked. Theresa made the rest come true.
We worked with Leann as well during our purchase. Very happy with timely communications, attention to details, can't ask for better service.
Theresa was there for us! She was there during our inspection, brought additional contractors for second opinions and for price quotes on some repairs. Theresa was 100% on our side protecting our interest and communicating everything to us.
The best experience buying a house! Just amazing!"
- Rita & Kevin, moving to Prescott very soon
"Although our search for a new home in Prescott took quite a while, both you and Linda were always there for us when we called and said we were on our way up from Casa Grande. You guys really put out the effort in showing us dozens of homes and were are glad you hung in there because the home on Northridge in Prescott Lakes turned out great for us and the family."
- Jim & Betty Pate
"Theresa was exceptional! She was kind, patient and understanding of our situation and was instrumental in finding the perfect fit for us. Theresa's diligence and attention to detail provided a smooth transition. I highly recommend Theresa deSoto and BloomTree Realty to all considering the purchase of a home. "
- Kim, Dewey AZ
"John is an outstanding agent. This is the fifth property in five years we have either bought or sold via John and " He Is Our Guy" He is the personification of a full service agent and always goes above and beyond."
- Alan & Carol White
"The entire process was handled remotely. They were very accommodating to our situation and represented our best interest in our absence."
- Betti, Idaho
"Searching for the right location to start a new business in Prescott I thought would be a daunting task but you really stepped up and found the right location and price for our needs in a very swift fashion. Our clinic in the valley took us almost six months to start up and with your help we cut that in half. "
- Daryn Krywko, UCR HealthCare
"Theresa was a delight to be around. I will recommend her to everyone."
- DiAnna, Prescott Valley, Az
"You really took control of the recent transaction we did on the 105 S. Cortez building. Acting in a dual representation role with myself and the seller of the building you were able to handle the transaction for us to purchase the building and then flip in within 120 days to the foundation and return us a handsome profit. Great Job. "
- Orin Anderson, Investor
"I enjoyed spending time with Theresa. She's professional and thorough. I expect to stay in touch with her as a friend!"
- Deborah, Prescott Az
"I can’t believe you sold my building on Gurley and saved me from almost losing it to the bank. It was hard for me to keep a positive attitude when creditors are looming around."
- Waitt Gregg
"I was very happy with my home purchase experience. I felt Theresa really wanted to make sure I purchased the perfect home for me. She also looks out for your best interest to ensure you get the best terms possible. It’s was a pleasure to do business with Theresa and I would not hesitate to use her in the future."
- Andrew S. Prescott AZ
"John you really had your work cut out for you selling both our places of business and home in the same year. Gail and I thank you again for the great job you did on both properties."
- Jim & Gail Allison
"She cared and took all the time l needed to find a house. She also made I point to show me around. Thank you."
- JACKIE, Prescott Valley, AZ.
"We were really glad you were up to the challenge of selling our spec home in Vista Del Cerro. Your great approach to marketing this homes really paid off for us. Thanks Again."
- Warren Bagnell, Builder
"Theresa was very kind and was patient with us and really worked to find a house that my wife and I would love. We recommend her to anybody buying and when we sell in the future will look to use her as well :)
Truly blessed to have had the opportunity to meet and work with Theresa!"
- Joseph, Chino Valley
"My husband and I were extremely impressed with John during our recent visit to Prescott. John's knowledge of the communities in Prescott was very valuable. Through him we purchased a home in Cathedral Pines and will relocate there in 2018. John also arranged a rental solution for us on the home until we move to Prescott. Because of his communication skills and knowledge we have already referred John to friends that are looking to join us in Prescott."
- Robin & Mike Allen
"Once we met Theresa deSoto we knew she was the best agent for us.
Theresa was friendly and extremely knowledgeable. She was right on top of everything and answered any questions we had quickly.
She is the “best” and we would highly recommend her to everyone."
- Milt and Carlene, Prescott, AZ
"Theresa is terrific to work with. She is a very kind person with an excellent work ethic. My husband and I went to Prescott over Labor Day weekend to search for property to purchase upon which to build a home when we retire. Theresa spent most of Saturday researching properties for us to view, driving us us to each one, and calling the listing agents when we got lost or had questions . She was very determined to find the properties and get our questions answered. We ended up buying one of the properties she showed us that weekend. We were only in Prescott for Saturday and Sunday of Labor Day weekend, and, had it not been for Theresa's help and expertise, we would not have found our property. My husband and I were very impressed with the amount of time she was willing to spend with us, how helpful she was, and that she drove us to the properties in her own car. I highly recommend Theresa to anyone searching for a home or property to purchase. She will work hard to help you find whatever you are looking for!"
- Dan and Lori Hepler
"John, thanks for helping us sell the spec home we built in Prescott Country Club. Your diligence and hard work paid off for us and the folks that bought the house."
- J.C. Connors, President Rising Star Homes
"Theresa has been awesome to work with! She is very helpful and kind. We recommend her to anyone."
- T.R. and Stephanie Negri
"John Gorden is one of the best! No complaints, only compliments. He represents BloomTree in a fine manner, and I would recommend hime highly.
John in knowledgeable, efficient and responsive. My house sold in one day!"
- Linda Carter, Prescott
"We meet Theresa by chance while looking at property online, we called in to the Prescott office, and they put us through to Theresa. We were immediately impressed by her efforts to figure out what type of property we would be interested in. She followed through and provided us with properties that were in our price range, and she continued to ask for feedback so she could help identify the things we liked. Once we had a list of potential properties, we made arraignments for a visit. When my wife and I met Theresa in person it was more like a nice day with an old friend, than meeting someone for the first time. It was full day and she had taken the time to preview everything, so she was able to let us know ahead about anything that was of particular interest about the different neighborhoods we would be seeing. We were both very impressed with her preparation, great personality and willingness to work for us! I can say, we highly recommend a call to Theresa if you are interested in property in the Prescott area, she will really work to make sure you find what you are looking for, and you will have a great time doing it!"
- Devon and Melisa
"We met John about 4 years prior at an open house (I believe). John was such a nice guy, we kept his card and when it was time to for us to make a trip to purchase we contacted John Gorden and utilized his website to conduct our home searches.
Coming in from Colorado, John gave us his total attention during our week long trip.
He didn't waste time showing us properties that didn't meet our criteria and made sure we had total access to the properties we wanted to see.
It didn't take long until we were in contract with our perfect new home. Having limited time to spend, John wasted no time in getting our home inspection lined up and painting contractors for us to meet. we were so happy to have accomplished so much during our trip. John just took care of everything."
- Joy Jordan, Colorado
"Theresa is the hardest working agent I have seen. Some friends of mine are looking for a home and Theresa has been there for them every step. Even though they are future buyers that are not ready to close right now, she treats them like they are the most important clients she has."
"During my internet search, I had read many positive comments about the realty - and John Gorden. I was so pleased when John contacted me and said he'd be the person I'd be working with - excellent write-ups on him!
This was the easiest home purchase I've ever had - and perhaps the most enjoyable. Not only was John Gorden "everything Prescott and surrounding" but he seemed to be very dialed into what was happening and what would be happening. I felt confident that I was with a "pro."
In all of the above, John excelled! He was truly a pleasure to work with and I was confident in every step that I had someone watching my back.
John Gorden knows his market - and he quickly learns his customer! I'd turn to him in a heartbeat for anything real estate - or just some good honest guidance and feedback on services in the area. Thanks to John, buying my home was fun!"
- Bronna, Prescott Valley
"Wow….what a wonderful job you did in selling our home so quickly in Forest Trails. The timing was great as we were ready to move into our new home. John you convinced us that Open Houses really do work."
- Jack & Myrna Gifford
"She cared and took all the time l needed to find a house. She also made I point to show me around. Thank you T. deSoto"
- Jackie Fox
"This realtor has excellent listening skills. In spite of her own inconvenience, she never wastes my time directing me to homes that are not within the parameters I have indicated. With sometimes little notice, she consistently makes herself available to coincide with my difficult schedule. Attending an on site home viewing in the Prescott area requires me to invest a 4 hour drive, and I rely heavily on her honesty, expertise, and guidance when selecting prospective homes for my consideration. It has been my experience that the BloomTree agency gives their sellers and buyers 100%, and personally that Theresa de Soto in particular without a doubt has always given me 150. I strongly recommend her as your choice of agent whether she will be representing you as a buyer or a seller, and I am confident that you will soon recognize, as I did, she is a professional with an unsurpassed devotion to representing you (as a 1983 song you may recall stated): "she works hard for the money", … because she sure does!"
"Theresa was the absolute best realtor we have ever had. She took care of all details of our purchase without ever having to be asked twice. Her professionalism was evident as she always looked out for our best interest no matter how small the details. She was the best realtor to introduce us to Prescott and sell us our beautiful home. She is also a blast to be with. You couldn't have for a better representative."
- Deborah Davis
