Success Stories...

"Ever wonder if your REALTOR was on the up and up? That won't happen with Greg Swann and Cathleen Collins of They live transparent lives; just Google their names.
     Ask Greg about how he sells houses quicker than most REALTORs; the man INVENTED customized marketing plans for distinctive Phoenix homes. Ask them how they preview the homes for buyers, post the pics on the internet, and analyze them to death so that you don't make the mistake of buying a home you can't afford.
     I'm biased because they are my friends but I refer Phoenix home buyers to them because they perform at a level that is far superior to their competition." – Brian B

"If it were the beginning of the 20th century, and you wanted to get from here to there, would you give a listen to a guy named Ford trying to sell you a Model T instead of that year's latest, greatest buggy on wheels?
     What Ford did for automobiles, Greg Swann of is doing for real estate. Reinventing the idea. Using the latest technology. And creating a truly new and better, practical and "duh!"-obvious way to get from here to there.
     If you are selling, you'll get a higher price. And a quicker sale. If you are buying, you'll get better property for your money. And you won't spend the first night in your new house awake sick with regret in a cold sweat over what you just did.
     Now there are a few things to know before you visit You'll immediately notice nobody is doing real estate this way. Given the stakes involved, it's only natural to wonder why. So you have to do a little reading. You need to check out Bloodhound's common sense methods against your own experience. And you should pay close attention to the documented and verifiable results Bloodhound gets. Un-fudge-able facts like average days on market. Percentage of asking price attained. Sold-for versus appraisal.
     If you are like most, at some point you just won't care why everyone else in real estate doesn't get it. You'll just want to use all the cards Bloodhound puts in your hand to win every pot in this particular game of real estate poker.
     Of course there is the anxiety of being first and among the vanguard. Traditional brokers will tut-tut you and say "now-now, this is not how real estate works around here." And skeptical neighbors and friends may raise doubts by calling Bloodhound "a little gimmicky." Or "too risky." Or "untested."
     Right, just like that thing Henry invented.
     The fact that the rest of the real estate industry hasn't yet caught on creates an overwhelming asymmetry that so favors's clients--you--that it's actually unfair. It's like that scene in Raiders of the Lost Ark--YOU are the one bringing a gun to a knife fight.
     This advantage will not last. Eventually realtors will get up to speed and move to the Model T. But they haven't yet. And in the meantime, has built something closer to a Lamborghini. Hop in. The road ahead is free and clear." – Richard R

"I've been an admirer of the talents and ethics of Cathleen Collins for many, many years so when Greg Swann began admiring her talents also, I knew he must be a winner too. He proved me right.
     A few years ago Greg spent hours and hours of quality time with my young son, helping him buy his first house. The education was invaluable. He went way beyond our expectations, referred us to a quality team for financing, helped us with contracting for a cement block wall to bring the home up to the neighborhood standard and generally made us feel great about the house we were buying.
     Neither my son or I would think of going to anyone but Bloodhound Realty for trustworthy, quality, professional service." – Sally S
