What they have to say about Chantel:

We couldn’t have asked for a better Realtor experience. Chantel is an expert in her field, and if there is an opportunity for us to recommend her to someone else, we definitely will. Her expertise and graciousness left a lasting impression. She doesn’t forget you – a rare trait in this fast-paced, use-them-lose-them world we live in.
-Matt & Monica Schwenk

When my husband and I started looking at homes in St. George, we had no idea it would take us two years to find the right one. In the first neighborhood we looked in, we met Chantel, a lovely blonde that was down to earth and very nice. We were mostly looking on our own at that time and weren’t sure if we were going to use a Realtor. Upon our second meeting, we gave Chantel our preferences (the first of many) and started the ball rolling. Over the next year, we had some doubts about moving and stopped looking in St. George and went back to the Las Vegas market. Chantel was professional and wished us luck. It was another 6 months before we looked in St. George again and this time we were focused and knew this was the right decision. We did our best to wear Chantel out with the number of houses we looked at, criteria changes and area changes. Through the whole process, Chantel kept a smile on her face and a wonderful attitude. Finally we found “the house”. Because the home was bank owned, there were many obstacles to finalizing the deal but it was well worth it. Chantel went above and beyond in making sure every i was dotted and t was crossed so we were covered. She was always looking out for our best interests while still keeping peace with the other parties involved. Chantel is both honest and has the greatest of integrity. Through this process, she watched me go from one child to two. She became a great friend. I can safely say that if Chantel can find us a house, she can find you a house. She helped us get our dream home. I know that she can help you too.

I have worked with Chantel on several occasions spanning 10 years. She is a very hard working motivated person who takes her clients interest to the highest level. I enjoy her constant smile and friendly attitiude toward a difficult and challenging field of business.

-Romelle Smith

Chantel Markel went out of her way to meet with us and help us in anyway possible. I would definitely send any referrals to Chantel. She made the experience a good one.
-Gary & Susan Friede

Chantel was friendly, easy to work with and very knowledgeable. Made the selling of our home a positive experience.
-Mark and Beanie Draper

It was a very quick simple purchase. Chantel gave me the property listings according to our desires. Details were sufficient to make a decision remotely on what properties we wished to view in person. Touring the properties was very quick and efficient. She answered all the questions we had and made recommendations we should consider before signing the contract. She also made recommendations of a title company and explained the process of closing including each amendment.
-Brian and Evie Sadler

I’ve worked with Chantel for over 4 years now. I first contacted Chantel when I wanted to buy a HUD townhouse. She was always there when we needed her and everything was very professional. After we moved out of our townhouse, Chantel became our property manager. She has just been wonderful. If I ask her to contact me before any repairs needed to be done, she would. She emails my account information each month. She has just been wonderful to work with. We bought and sold a home in Arizona and the realtors could not even compare with Chantel’s quality of service. I’ll recommend Chantel all day, every day, to anyone.
-Todd Sheeran

Chantel is a true professional. She is thorough, respectful, helpful, and just plain nice.
– Dennis J. Curtis
Long Realty Company
Chantel was willing to (by happenstance) show an open house to us late on a Saturday after a decade of me rebuilding a life for my wife and son and me swearing off homeownership forever from experience. Chantel worked double time for us and is by my standard/opinion the ONLY realtor I would ever consider buying through in Southern Utah, or anywhere else for that matter. We’ve worked with and rented from three Realtor companies over the past five years since relocating to St. George and have experienced one let down after another. That is until we met Chantel, the most patient, professional, personable and compassionate real estate professional I have ever worked with. The hurdles were 100% my fault with regards to circumstance / hurdles, and challenges we had to work through but Chantel made it happen. Chantel made our dreams come true. She is truly the only real estate professional I would ever consider working/buying or selling through for anything I buy sell for life in real estate. Thanks, Chantel! You have no idea how much it meant and your care is much appreciated.

What they have to say about Phil:

Phil recently listed our home for us in St. George. His knowledge of the local real estate market was very clear when we first met and he told us what he thought our home would sell for. As it turned out, he was “right on” with his evaluation and we were able to get what we thought we needed for our home. We were away from St. George during the entire process and it was quite comforting to have him there representing us during this transaction.
-Bert & Claire Kendrick

Phil Johnson was my Realtor on my recent home purchase. He was knowledgable, communicated well (including being very available via phone), friendly, and detail oriented. I appreciated his professionalism during and after the transaction and highly recommend him. Thanks Phil!
-Phil Goold


What they have to say about Mindi:

Mindi helped us sell our home, We feel that we got a fair market price and were treated with respect. She was understanding of our situation and tried extremely hard to find the right buyer. We feel that it was a “Win, Win” situation. I can highly recommend her for your Real Estate needs.
-Phyllis & George Oliver

We have had the BEST experience with Mindi. We were recommended to her through a mutual friend and have been so grateful for her expertise and knowledge. She has been amazing every step of the way. She did a lot of hands on work for us and held our hand throughout the entire process. She was by far the best agent I have ever worked with. I would wholeheartedly recommend Mindi for your buying and selling needs
-Stacey Jensen

Mindi did a wonderful job in selling our home in a tough economy. Mindi was attentive, resourceful, honest, pro-active, and followed up on each and every lead/showing. Her communications were superb! Her hard work is un-matched in this competitive environment.
-Marsha Boex

Mindi is excellent in what she does. She is very personable and friendly and has a great understanding of the Real Estate market here in the St. George area. For buying and selling you couldn’t have anyone better.

What they have to say about Ciera:

We could not of found a better fit to help us find our home than Ciera. I truly believe that the time and attention she paid to us as buyers was priceless. The trust factor and relationship as realtor and buyer was very important to us, Ciera never missed a beat. We have just closed on our new home and are so thankful to Ciera for being a part of the journey. St. George and Markel Realty Group are so blessed to have her as a part of their team.

Rita kept us informed of exactly what was happening as she helped us to sell our home. We always felt she was there for us and she returned our calls quickly. She was able to get us the price we wanted and needed for our home. We both give her 5 stars!
