But since you clicked on a tab marked “About Us,” here’s a bit more about who we are:
We got married in July 2014, more than 20 years after we first met in high school, and we like to joke that perhaps if we had gotten together earlier in life, each of our paths would have had a few less twists and turns! But alas, the twists and turns are what makes life interesting! We both spent our early years in the Chicago area, but didn’t cross paths then, even though we lived within a few miles of each other. We finally connected in the early 1990s at Horizon High School in Scottsdale, AZ, where we were introduced by a mutual friend. But we never became more than casual friends back then, although we did go on one “date,” a Cotillion dance that Danielle invited Michael to and we attended as friends. Here’s the photo to prove it!
Our “second first date” wasn’t until September 2013 in Nashville, TN, where Michael had been living the past few years.
We had recently reconnected on Facebook and had been talking on the phone. In many ways, it was an old-fashioned courtship with a modern twist. Instead of handwritten letters, we got to know each other long-distance through text messages and video phone conversations. Within a few months, Michael decided to move back home to Arizona, he proposed in March 2014 on a Disney Cruise, and we got married a few months later in Las Sendas, our home neighborhood of Mesa, AZ.
We have three beautiful daughters who keep us on our toes, two from Danielle’s former marriage and one we made together (with God’s help). Family is our most important thing, and when we are not working, we love to spend time with our girls, our parents and our siblings and their families. We like to take advantage of the beautiful Arizona desert and spend as much time as possible outdoors: walking, running, hiking, biking, swimming, boating and playing with the kids. We love to travel to other places as well. And we enjoy giving back: volunteering at church, building houses in Mexico, feeding the homeless and giving out free hugs.
We recently each took a Meyers Briggs personality test and the results showed that we are opposite in every way. Although this poses daily challenges to understanding one another, it means we bring a full 360 perspective to our life and work, a broad range of skill, and an unusual depth to our understanding of Real Estate and our clients. We fill in each other’s gaps to provide a more well-rounded experience and to serve you better.
We understand that buying or selling a home in Arizona can be a huge undertaking, leaving you with many unanswered questions. However, given the right tools, and the right Real Estate team on your side, it can be one of the most exciting and rewarding experiences.
