Testimonials for Lisa Aird and Debra Macdonald below.


Lisa Aird

Lisa, I just wanted to drop you a note to express my deep appreciation and gratitude for all your help with the purchase of my new (to me anyway) house this past summer. With your expertise, my entire house hunting and buying experience, start to finish, was the best I can imagine and was, by far, better than anything I have previously experienced dealing with real estate. Your professionalism, patience, helpfulness, knowledge and personality made what is normally a trying and difficult undertaking into a most pleasant and rewarding experience. I really don't know what I would have done without all your help. You went above and beyond for me, every step of the way, and I do greatly appreciate it. As a realtor, anyone buying or selling real estate through you would be in very good hands indeed. I thank you and wish you all the success you so richly deserve.  Michael O.


This is a quick note about Lisa Aird and Skysbright Realty. Lisa represented me on the sale of my home. It's not an easy thing to give up a home you've had for 12 years and especially more difficult if it is your first time as a seller. Lisa was sensitive to the fact that a house is more than a piece of property to make a buck on. I did not feel like a product or even a customer. I felt like I was getting sound advice from a friend based on over a decade of experience in the real estate world who knows the stresses and pressures of selling a home and moving.

Lisa has a personalized touch that can only come through a private business that she runs herself. Because of this she takes pride in what she does and how she treats you as a client. Emails, phone calls and texts are responded to promptly and open communication is encouraged. Never once did I feel like I was on my own or ignored and even my most silly questions were answered in a professional way that was easy for me to understand. Ask Lisa a question and you will get a straight answer. She wont bullshit you or tell you what you want hear in order to keep your business. So count on getting straight talk.

Instead of talking about how much we made I will tell you that Lisa has unique pulse on the northern Arizona real estate need to trust her and let her do what she skilled at. She knows when to wait, when to accept an offer and was able to predict how things would go. Lisa keeps you updated every step of the way!

So if you are on the fence about her services I can assure of her knowledge, her professionalism and personalized attention that you will get as her client.

Lisa at Skysbright Realty has helped me purchase several homes in the last couple years. She is very professional, helpful, available and on top of the deal from contract to closing. Lisa is very responsive to any questions or comments either via email or phone. Her integrity and honesty is refreshing. Do yourself a favor and work with Lisa. She will save you a lot of time and money. Al S.


We had a great experience working with Lisa as our Realtor. We went into the process not quite sure how it was going to work out in selling our house and buying a new house at the same time. It was a complicated process with many steps but we found that Lisa was always on top of every detail throughout the whole process. We felt that we could trust her in making sure that we were very informed every step of the way. She kept in close contact with the loan officer, title officer and the buyer's and seller's agents which made things go very smoothly. Her attention to detail became very valuable when she noticed a mistake in the loan a few days before the closing that would have made for an unfavorable loan for us. She has a great sense of what homes were worth based on her experience and this proved invaluable in the negotiation process. We were able to buy a great home well below its listing price and her service extended beyond the closing date when she helped us out with issues in our new home. If you are looking for a patient, hard-working, knowledgeable Realtor we would definitely recommend Lisa!

Lisa Aird was very professional and very patient. She took time to make sure everything was done right, even when I was not sure what to do. She helped me save a lot of money buying the house. She knows the real estate business very well and was there when I needed her. She handled all the necessary paperwork for me and made sure the house was inspected thoroughly. She will work over time when she needs to. I would definitely recommend her to anyone buying a house.

Thank You,

Andrew M.


My wife and I happened to come across Lisa Aird while looking at a particular home. What a lucky day

for us. From the first day we met Lisa we knew she was the right agent for us. This was the fourth

home that we have purchased and Lisa was by far the best agent we have ever worked with. Anytime

we ever needed something or any questions answered she was ON IT. Lisa was very knowledgeable

about every location in Flagstaff, her professionalism was second to none. We highly recommend

Lisa Aird. and thank her so much for helping not only to find the perfect home for our family but for

also being such a great friend to us. We thank you Lisa so very much. May many blessings come your

way in the future.

Our experience working with Lisa was a very pleasant experience. She listened to what we wanted and tried very hard to show us what we wanted within our price range. She was very knowledgeable and pointed us to very helpful people for financing, inspections, and title work. Every time we requested showings she made herself available. She gave helpful ideas about the homes we looked at, both pros and cons. It was nice to get a different perspective. With her help we finally found the right home, coming in below what we had expected to pay. Lisa is a very caring person and does her best to get you into the right home. We were very pleased with her work and keeping us in the loop every step of the way. You couldn’t ask for a better realtor to help in your quest for a new home.

Dear Lisa,

I want to tell you what a pro I think you were at handling this most difficult home buying experience. We both know we were not in control of the seller or the selling agent, however the way that you convinced them to do certain things such as continuing forward after the extended sale period was instrumental in closing this deal. Your persistence in pursuing my desire to purchase this home was relentless. I am more than grateful that you took the time and effort to explain any details of the process that I was not familiar with and the fact that you were available immediately after any phone call or email to discuss our position was so satisfactory. After all this was said I did not even thank you for selling my previous home in record time and with no pain. I am certainly not a real estate agent, however I was very familiar with the comps in my area and I truly believe you got me more than what market value was and regardless I was so happy to be moving on in such a quick time period. I can not tell you when I will be needing your services again but there will be no one else that I will call before you. I sincerely thank you Lisa for hanging in there with your persistence and professionalism and I wish you the best and look forward to working with you in the future.

Very sincerely,

Harry W.


I am writing to give Lisa Aird my highest recommendation.  Lisa possesses all the attributes necessary in the real estate market, but, if she doesn't have the answer she has the ability to find it quickly and accurately.  She is both very professional and personable and clearly takes pride in doing a good job.  In my particular case, as a buyer, there were many rough spots on the road to closing and in every instance Lisa was a great help. It would be hard to envision someone doing a better job than Lisa or being anything but happy in choosing to work with her. Chuck K.


We have been moving into our new home for approximately 1 month.  Thanks to Lisa, we were able to purchase this home in a timely and very smooth manner.  We met Lisa via the internet, when she responded to a request for more information regarding a listing we saw on another realtors site.  Lisa was very prompt and very professional when she answered our request.  We were coming from 300 miles and were only available on the weekends, and even though Lisa had a prior appointment, she arranged to meet with us after that appointment.  Each and every time we had properties to see,
Lisa would be available to meet us and show us each property.  She made this process painless for us.  Lisa's knowledge, expertise, and integrity showed with every interaction we had.  Even though we had
never met Lisa before, she proved to be honest as she assisted us through the process.  Lisa answered every question, and we felt very sure that she had our best interest at heart as we went through the
process of purchasing our home.  She also has working relationships with other professionals you will need to complete your home buying process. I am very thankful that the other realtor did not answer our request, as I would highly recommend Lisa as your new agent.
Sincerely Mr. & Mrs Matt M.


To whom it may concern, I want to let you know that Lisa Aird is a top notch realtor she help me through the whole process and was there every step of the way ! She sent me lots of updates and lots of different places to look at she really went the extra mile thank you again Lisa!

When purchasing our first home, my wife and I had no idea of how the process worked. Lisa Macdonald (Aird) with Skysbright Realty was extremely helpful and responsive throughout the entire process, even after the sale was final. I was surprised that she followed up with us after we had moved into our new home and asked if we had any questions for her. She was very genuine in making sure we were well taken care of, which we were. Lisa was very knowledgeable and kept us well informed throughout the entire process as well. If we are ever in the market for a new home, we will definitely be contacting Lisa with Skysbright Realty again, and recommend anyone else do the same.

Hi Lisa,

We could not have been happier with you as our realtor!  I felt very comfortable immediately upon meeting you.  My son had taken the lead to find you after not feeling the chemistry with the initial realtor. He was looking for someone who would LISTEN to what his needs and likes and dislikes were, then help him through the process of the financing and inspection.  You were that person!  Your knowledge of the market and process of home buying were obvious. We never felt rushed or that we were asking too many questions. There was an unique situation with the home we purchased necessitating a quick claim deed which you went above and beyond to complete. Once the right house was found, we could not have been happier with how smoothly and quickly the closing happened. You are truly one of the best and talented realtors out there! Thanks very much for all you did for us and we will highly recommend you to others and contact you again should another house be in our future!

Hi Lisa,

We would like to thank you so much for helping us find our summer home in Flagstaff.   You did a great job keeping us focused on our priorities and budget! Your many emails allowed us to check out dozens of properties online and were so helpful in narrowing down exactly what we wanted.  You must have spent a lot of time organizing our day to look at the final contenders, and your extra research on each property's records was so important.  Paul and I really appreciate that you didn't apply hard sell tactics and did not gloss over major flaws or gush over minor attributes, but always sharing valuable information about the home and its neighborhood.  You were also valuable getting us through the purchase process, helping find a good home inspector and trusted title company.  We will definitely recommend you to any of our friends or family looking for properties up in the Flagstaff area.  Thanks again!

Best Wishes,

Paul and Susan C.


We are writing to share our words of appreciation for our Real Estate Agent, Lisa Aird, Owner/Broker of Skysbright Realty. We reside in Tucson, Arizona and wanted to purchase a second home in the Flagstaff area before interest rates rose this year.

We have purchased several properties in the past and this was our best experience yet. Lisa’s efforts exceeded our expectations and had it not been for Lisa’s assistance and constant tending of detail, we would have had to make many trips than we did. Lisa guided us through the entire process, from loan prequalification to searching for homes to making the offer and closing the deal. We credit Lisa with a smooth, stress free home buying experience.

We would and will recommend Lisa as the best real estate agent we have ever known. Lisa has incredible attention to detail, excellent follow through and is extremely kind and personable. Lisa was able to work around some obstacles that came up for us personally and was accessible throughout all dealings.

We were incredibly blessed to have had Lisa as our real estate agent.

I just wanted to send you a quick e-mail to show my appreciation for all that you have done for me in regards to purchasing my new home. You were always professional, informative and very helpful with all of my questions, comments and concerns. You stuck with me through the 3 bids that didn’t work out and you saved me thousands of dollars when we finally found the perfect home. I have already sent a couple of new clients you’re way and I will continue to send them you’re way as they come to me looking for a great agent. I wanted to also thank you for referring an inspector and a financing company. In today’s world we are all so busy and you helped make this long and tiring process much easier. I also appreciated all of the long hours you put in with me looking at houses well after the 5:00pm hour. YOU’RE AWESOME!

Thank you for everything and I hope to work with you again in the near future!

I would not hesitate doing business on a future real estate transaction with Lisa. She is a true professional and her only priority was our complete satisfaction. Throughout our purchase we were advised and given the proper information for us to make the right decisions for the best possible deal. Her response time to calls or emails was almost immediate. She understands the Flagstaff real estate market and kept us informed of listings within our budget. Lisa is well deserving of a five star review. Thank You Lisa Aird!

Robert C.


Thank you Lisa for all you do. I am very pleased with the work you have done for me and my sisters. You have always been very professional, quick to respond, accurate with information you provide, up-front with bad news, and able to find a way around any problem that did arise. I look forward to working with you in the future and highly recommend your services to others. Mary H.

When I contacted Lisa at Skysbright Realty, I had already purchased a home in Montana and was in the process of moving. Since My family had come to Flagstaff in 1905,  I had accumulated a lot of things that I wanted to take with me. When I finally got the house cleaned out enough to do all of the necessary maintenance that had accumulated over the years,  we had come to the end of the season. Actually I was afraid that time may have lapsed for the year and I was going to have to house-sit in AZ for the winter. Lisa came out, took photos,  listed my home and we had an acceptable offer within days. After a small amount of negotiation, she was able to get the whole transaction done quickly and efficiently via internet, and the process was easier than when I purchased the  home in Montana  a year earlier.

Lisa is a true professional in every way and I highly recommend her services to everyone who is looking to buy or sell real estate in northern AZ. She made no promises that she didn't fulfill and kept me informed at every step of the way.

Debra Macdonald

If you are like we were, you are overwhelmed by the home buying process.  We found the most reassuring choice we made was working with a quality realtor.  We met Debra Macdonald while viewing an open house.  We had shied away from choosing a realtor because we were not sure we were ready.  After meeting Deb, we instantly knew we had met our person.  We live in another state currently and her knowledge and experience of the Arizona area, laws and rules was very reassuring.  Her no pressure demeanor was just what we were looking for.  After our first meeting we knew we had just made our first Arizona friend.  Deb is all the things you want in a realtor; punctual, responsive, professional and thorough.  But what we enjoyed the most is her sweet, caring personality.  She really cares about her clients and wants what is best for them.  We highly recommend her.

Brian & Denise H from Yelm, Washington

Great Experience!  Debra has always been available to talk with me and answer my questions about the properties.  I will continue to reach out to Debra for all my real estate needs.  I highly recommend her to anyone looking to work with a Professional Real Estate Agent.

Gary R.

Debra made the process of selling my house much easier.  She is pleasant, willing to go above & beyond paying attention to details.  I highly recommend her.

Tami H.

We had an amazing experience with Debra as our realtor.  Being new to the area, we really had no idea where we wanted to be.  Debra patiently took us to so many houses until we finally found our perfect home in the perfect neighborhood.  She is very knowledgeable and helped guide us through the entire process.  We love her and highly recommend her!

James & Susie

Thanks for all you did helping us achieve the dream of being homeowners.  Thank you for the thoughtful gifts.  That really meant a lot.  They were perfect for the house.

Phil & Elana


I cannot express how satisfied and extremely happy were are for Debra's dedication and promptness that she showed for buying our home.  She stayed on top of things all the way and she was constantly communicating with us.  She was very pleasant and I will recommend her to all of my friends and family!

Kelly L 

Debra is an excellent real estate agent showing us properties within our budget.  Very attentive to detail.  Kept us informed. Great communication.  I will recommend her to anyone that needs a realtor.  I give her 5 stars.

Scott K 


Having you help us find a house was a treat, not only did you take us to homes that fit the aesthetic and price point that we wanted, but also were conscious of how the home would be lived in.  You always took care to be on tie and super responsive, even when we asked questions that we may have previously had answers to.  You were careful to make sure that the home would pass inspection and were very transparent if you did not think it would fit our needs best.  Althought the market is tough for buyers, it's easy to get exhausted and discouraged.  Your positive outlook and incredible resolve helped us to get into "our" homes and made the whole process feel simple.  We that you for your help and of course will look to you for any future searches!  Many thanks and warm wishes. 

Stephanie and Neo

When it came came time to sell my house I wanted to be certain I was going to get the highest amount possible.  After interviewing several of the big brand names that you see on TV I decided to hire Debra.  Not only because she's with a small business but also because she truly knew what needed to be done to prepare my home for the sale and kept me informed throughout the entire process.  Every time an offer came in she notified me and we went over each offer.  Due to her impeccable negotiating skills several buyers sent over second offers that were higher than their first.  I am amazed and so very thankful for the service Debra provided especially because I received $300K over the amount the other companies recommended for the listing price of my home.  I will recommend her to all my friends and family.
