About Us

Welcome to my website serving the greater Phoenix area, including the East Valley cities of Tempe, Ahwatukee, Chandler and other areas in the greater Maricopa County, AZ.

Your Source for Professional Real Estate Services.

As an experienced Realtor® who serves all areas in Maricopa County, AZ such as Ahwatukee, Tempe, and Chandler I help both buyers and sellers meet their real estate objectives. I have extensive knowledge of each of the communities located in the Southeast Valley and will work tirelessly on your behalf to make your next home buying or home selling experience a pleasant and successful one.

When selecting a Realtor® you'll look for someone with knowledge of the community, strong negotiation skills, and a commitment to providing excellent service so let me tell you a little about myself.

I specialize in residential and investment properties in the greater Phoenix area, including the East Valley cities of Tempe, Ahwatukee and Chandler to name a few.  I can be your resource when buying or selling your next home or investment property.

In 2005 after a long (25 years) and successful career in Banking, I changed course going into private business as a Realtor.  That decision was natural, since for over 30 years I have personally bought and sold residential and investment properties, including 1031 exchanges.

As a Realtor® and Associate Broker, I bring my negotiation, lending and communication skills into play when representing clients in their real estate transactions.  My professional and personal experience enables me to provide sound advice to my clients.  I've earned certifications through the Graduate Realtor Institute and the Certified Distressed Property Institute and am also an Associate Broker.

For sellers, it is my commitment to help sell your home or property in your time-frame while helping you attain the highest possible price for your real estate. If you are interested in receiving a free home valuation, I encourage you to fill out my free home valuation form.  I'm a Certified Distressed Property Expert and if you are currently struggling, give me a call and I can review your situation to see if you have an option to foreclosure.

For buyers looking for homes or other real estate opportunities here in Tempe or other surrounding communities in Maricopa County, AZ, I will work with you to find your ideal home. I will provide you with all of the necessary tools for finding the right property. From free access to search all area homes in Tempe and metro-Phoenix; to the ability to fill out My Dream Home Finder Form, everything I can possibly provide will be available to you. In addition, once we've narrowed down what you are looking for, we can begin the home showing process so you can get a closer look at the homes that should be a good fit. I help negotiate the best possible deal for my clients with each and every real estate transaction.

As a long-time resident here in metro-Phoenix and an Arizona native, I’m familiar with what makes the area such a great place to live.  I’m customer driven and enjoy building relationships with my clients that go beyond the buying and selling of homes.  They rely on me to provide quality referrals to other professionals and for any future real estate needs.

Whether you are a buyer or seller, I’ll provide the professional skills and personal attention needed to complete a successful real estate transaction. 

This section is designed to help you understand my commitment to you as a Realtor® servicing the communities of Ahwatukee, Tempe, Chandler and surrounding Maricopa County, AZ areas.  I am a licensed Arizona Realtor® and Associate Broker which means I maintain the highest possible standards as a real estate agent. The Realtor® designation means that I am a member of the National Association of Realtors and act according to a specific code of Arizona Realtor® ethics which guarantees the optimum level of service for your real estate needs when buying or selling a home or condo, in Ahwatukee, Tempe, Chandler or in surrounding Maricopa County, AZ communities. I've earned the Graduate Realty Institute designation, which involves  experience and training in many areas of real estate to better serve and protect clients. When you need a Realtor®, be sure to contact me.

I have the backing of a great team of Real Estate Professionals, including my wife and partner, Kathy Montoya, Dennis Keith, Broker of Metro Realty Professionals and a host of Lenders, Title Companies and Vendors.  When you hire me, you hire a full team and our commitment to provide you with professional and timely service.

We'll provide the professional skills and personal attention needed to complete a sucessful real estate transaction.  I appreciate and thank you for your business.

Kathy Montoya, Realtor, e-Pro

Ernie and I have built our real estate business after working in banking and lending.  I enjoy an active roll in the company by running the office, helping clients and freeing Ernie's time to develop business and work with clients.   I obtained my real estate license in 2005 and this allows me to directly assist clients since Ernie has not yet figured out how to be in two places at once.

We find that by having a strong team, we are better able to provide the service our clients deserve and expect.  We pride ourselves on developing relationships with our clients that go beyond the scope of real estate.
