The Neighborly is a site dedicated to the People, Places, and Spaces of Phoenix. We are a group of Realtors that believes real estate is more than the transaction of buying and selling but about relationship building, community and sharing in a love of all things home.

Our Process


We take pride in what we do and know that each
client and home is unique; we tailor our marketing,
outreach and services for each purchase or sale.


We have lived, worked, and made connections in our
community to benefit our clients and their transition
to a new home.


Joining one of the most highly respected brands in the world, Sotheby’s International, we are able to utilize a vast network of agents and industry leading technology to benefit our clients.

What I have learned is that everyone has a unique story to tell, and the journey of finding home is one of the most important chapters- one that I am so honored to be a part of.”
