Northern Arizona Executive and Family Gives Back to Veterans in Need

(Published on - 8/21/2019 4:49:07 PM)

 

Gary Denton-55 and Kathleen Denton-47 may be empty nesters, but they are in no way retired. In fact, their motto, “work hard, play hard” may persuade you to believe they may never actually retire. Gary and Kathleen both graduated from Arizona State University, but they did not meet there. It was not until they were both in their professional careers that their paths crossed. Kathleen has been a Real Estate Agent for the last 20 years. And at the time they met, she was Gary’s Realtor and property manager of some investment property he owned. They married in 2009, have three adult children Alex-30, Jay-28, and Sophia-24 and two grandsons Cooper-3 and Rhett-2 from their son Alex and his wife, Felicia. As a Realtor, Kathleen works for Realty Executives Northern Arizona in Prescott. She specializes in all of Yavapai and Maricopa Counties and would love to be the number one choice for anyone selling or purchasing a home. Gary built and operated a heavy highway construction company and retired after 20 years. But as I said earlier, their motto would lead you to believe they may not truly retire!

Gary and Kathleen founded a nonprofit 501(c)3 in 2015 called the Wheels of Freedom Project, where they provide powered wheelchairs and power scooters free of charge to disabled Veteran & Veteran families that either do not qualify via the VA or private insurance and cannot afford a powered mobility device. Wheels of Freedom Project started after Gary wanted to give back, so he found an older electric wheelchair that was going to be thrown out. Gary fixed it up and contacted the local Veterans Affair (VA) and Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) to look for a candidate. The VA and VFW came through and introduced Gary to a Veteran that did not qualify. They delivered the chair, and it changed the Veteran’s life. After that, Gary and Kathleen created a Facebook page, and people started to contact them about electric wheelchairs sitting in storage or a garage that were not being used. Thus a nonprofit is born! This charitable foundation shows the “work hard” part, although Gary may argue it is actually the “play hard” side. In 2015 Gary and Kathleen moved to Pronghorn Ranch to escape the Phoenix heat and be part of a small town. This allowed them to give back to their community through their charity.

Realty Executives Northern Arizona Agents Rank Among America’s Best

(Published on - 7/26/2019 10:07:27 PM)

 

The Beitzel Team and Suzanne Knighton of Realty Executives Northern Arizona have each ranked among the nation’s elite in the 2019 REAL Trends America’s Best Real Estate Professionals report.

Suzanne Knighton of the Happy Jack branch ranked no. 55 in the “Individuals by Sides” category for the entire state of Arizona while The Beitzel Team based in Prescott ranked no. 103 in the “Teams by Sides” category for Arizona. 

Being featured in the report is an accomplishment in itself, as the list ranks the most productive agents by state and metropolitan area based on closed transactions sides and closed volume. To qualify for inclusion, an individual must have closed at least 50 transaction sides or $20 million in sales volume in 2018. For real estate teams, the minimum in 75 transaction sides or $30 million in closed sales volume. More than 14,000 real estate professionals from every state are featured in the nationwide report.

“Those individual agents and teams who make up the 2019 America’s Best Real Estate Professionals represent less than 1.5 percent of all Realtors® in the country yet account for over 12 percent of the closed transactions and more than 22 percent of all the sales volume closed last year,” says Steve Murray, president of REAL Trends. 

Suzanne Knighton launched her real estate career in 2000 after successfully making a living as a musician for more than three decades. She made tremendous and rapid advancements in real estate by adopting a laser focus on committing to her niche area. “Working in one area and not spreading out has been key. Also, my brokerage is wonderful. They trust me to run my own office and be pretty independent, but they are there when I need them. I've been in real estate for close to two decades, with three of those years affiliated with Realty Executives. I wish I had started with Realty Executives in the first place,” says Knighton.

Husband and wife George and Pamela Beitzel of the The Beitzel Team also credit setting clear, unified targets for their team’s success. “We plan our business strategy each year with a specific production goal in mind. This includes sourcing every closing and working to grow that business source. We review those goals regularly and adjust them according to the market and our work level. Getting a great assistant to help develop systems for every aspect of the business so that we can continually strive to provide better service to our clients and improve our sales skills has been critical. We've learned that a team should never be an ego-driven endeavor. It has to fill a need and not create one,” says Pamela Beitzel.

As hard as they work to be the right team, the Beitzel’s acknowledge the importance of home buyers and sellers choosing the right real estate professional to help them navigate their real estate journeys. “Sellers do better when they listen to their agent. Malcolm Gladwell theorized that real estate agents sell their personal homes for more money than the public because we care more about our personal bottom line than that of our clients. That's not true. We sell for more money because we know what we are doing. Sellers too often get in their own way by refusing to make updates, holding out too long on price and not following the advice of their agent. My advice to both sellers and buyers is to choose a really great agent and then let that agent work for them,” says Pamela Beitzel.

The teams at Realty Executives Northern Arizona and Realty Executives International applaud The Beitzel Team and Suzanne Knighton, and are proud to support the success of these top-tier real estate professionals.

“Congratulations to our hard working Executives. We are honored to champion productive real estate professionals who run their real estate businesses like a business!  We celebrate this distinctive industry recognition and the hard work, dedication and ultimately each successful real estate sale the rankings represent,” said Cynthia Yannitelli.

Northern Arizona Summer Travel Guide

(Published on - 5/10/2019 3:37:25 PM)

 

 

Let’s face it: Arizona summers are no joke. Whether you live in the hottest part of the state or you’re looking for some fun day trips for you and your family, we’ve got the perfect guide for you. Keep reading to find out the best places to travel this summer in Northern Arizona.

 

Watson Lake: Prescott, AZ

If you’re looking to beat the summer heat in Arizona, head up to Watson Lake just four miles from Prescott. From fishing and boating to kayaking, canoeing, and other water sports, you can take advantage of the recreation the bright blue lake has to offer. This area generally has more mild weather year-round, and with the natural vegetation, gorgeous flowers, and almost 400 acres of land, you’re sure to find both serenity and a fun escape from daily life.

 

Red Rock State Park: Sedona, AZ

Sedona is known for the beautiful rock formations that have inspired artwork, architecture, and even films and theme parks. Make the day trip to Red Rock State Park, where you and your family can enjoy both leisurely nature walks and more advanced hiking trails no matter what you prefer. After your day of sightseeing through the red rocks, head over to Tlaquepaque for some dinner at one of the area’s delicious restaurants.

 

Fort Tuthill County Park: Flagstaff, AZ

When it comes to beating the Arizona summer weather, Flagstaff is the place to be. You may have visited this northern Arizona region before. But did you ever adventure through Fort Tuthill County Park? Just three miles south of Flagstaff sheltered by cool-tempered Ponderosa pines, this park offers some fun and adventurous recreation activities all summer long. Take a bike ride through the woods, try your hand at archery, and pack a picnic for lunch. This area has fun (away from the sun!) for the whole family.

 

Old Town Cottonwood: Cottonwood, AZ

Finally, we couldn’t share a Northern Arizona summer travel guide without mentioning Old Town Cottonwood. Just a 1.5 hour drive from Phoenix in the heart of the Verde Valley Wine Country, this hidden gem is full of just as much history as fun and relaxation. Stroll through the old streets, go wine tasting at a local cellar, and take a scenic walk or nature tour of the Verde River. If you’re in mood for a little history, take your family along the Jail Trail, where you can follow the riverbank to Dead Horse Ranch State Park, a must-see on your trip!
