I'm honored you're here.
After parting ways with the PAR, I went on to successfully oversee the management and sales efforts of three realty offices belonging to a nationally prominent franchise.
Soon thereafter, I opened a boutique brokerage of my own in the heart of Ahwatukee and subsequently launched the Bentley Real Estate Group in 1999. The sterling reputation and sizable market share I would ultimately achieve (while continuing to sell as a Realtor) remains for me a source of tremendous pride.
In 2008, I purchased a Coldwell Banker franchise and converted Bentley Real Estate to Coldwell Banker Bentley.
Having spent decades mastering the ins and out of this business, and having sold thousands of homes during that time, I am a uniquely capable seller advocate, an expert negotiator, and a knowledgeable resource. Furthermore, my team utilizes an aggressive, comprehensive, and savvy strategy in marketing new listings and maintains close contact with the sellers throughout this process. I have long held that my clients deserve transparency of that sort.
Whether you are looking to list your home or simply have questions about the larger real estate market, feel welcome to contact me directly by telephone or e-mail. I am happy to be of help and service in any way I'm able.
In the late 1990s, I launched my real estate career with the Phoenix Association of Realtors (PAR). The PAR existed to both resolve disputes and address ethics complaints.
Working in this capacity allowed me to closely observe the financial and emotional harm visited upon hard working people due to rank negligence within the profession. Witnessing this aspect of the industry firsthand compelled me to shape my own business around the principles of integrity, transparency, and diligence. For that much I am grateful.
My approach to real estate sales and marketing is both simple and complex. Simply, we at all times operate with the utmost integrity and professionalism, remembering that our practice is client-centered and client-driven. Our clients and the needs of our clients always come first.
The effective marketing and closing of real estate is complex. Your listing receives industry-leading marketing, advertising and other allied professionals, all of whom work together to develop a strategic and tactical marketing plan customized to each client and each property. These marketing plans include an aggressive mix of print advertising, quality photography, professional text writing, virtual tours and full-color brochures, as well as sophisticated Internet marketing—including exposure to our exclusive database of nearly 4,000.
At every juncture of this multi-faceted process—from signed listing agreement to close of escrow- our clients receive streamlined, qualitative and up-to-the-minute feedback and updates as to the marketing and sales status of their property. There is no better testimony than when our clients choose to return, time and again.
More than 72% of our business comes from the friends and clients with whom we've already helped buy or sell their homes. Such loyalty means we enjoy the unique distinction of having worked with multiple generations of families. I have personally sold over 2,000 homes for my clients and will continue to provide the utmost in professional real estate services.
We are truly honored by the numerous awards, accolades and recognition bestowed upon us… but that is not what motivates us. Our goal is your complete and continued satisfaction from our first interaction, in perpetuity. We pride ourselves on providing you an impeccable, stress-free experience by earning your confidence… at every step.
Successfully mitigating the inherently complex transactions of buying or selling your home, although important, is only a very small portion of my commitment to you. Correctly choosing who will represent your interests is critical.
I welcome you to explore the resources that I have to guide you through your next real estate transaction.
