First of all, I am a family man… I love spending time with my beautiful wife, Jennifer, our two daughters and most recently a son. We have three dogs and I also enjoy cooking and travel. Working on just about anything in the garage, we build various hot rods, muscle cars, motorcycles, rat rods, pickup trucks and even some woodworking. Tuesday nights I still play on a competitive adult football team so I lead a busy, but fun life!
I am raising a family of my own so often share in the same hard decisions you need to make and can therefore relate.
My goal is to become friends after working together and not just be your Realtor. I want to be your Real Estate Resource for life that you can refer to family, friends, co-workers and anyone else you know needing assistance.
I originally obtained my Real Estate license in 2003 and then upgraded to a Broker’s license in 2007. I currently serve as the Treasurer for WeMAR (Western Maricopa County Association of Realtors) and also sit on the Board of Directors for AAR (Arizona Association of Realtors). In the past, I have served as Chairperson for WeMAR’s Young Professionals Network and Chairperson for the ARMLS (Arizona Regional Multiple Listing Service) MLS Committee. I have been the Designated Broker for RE/MAX Preferred Choice since March of 2013 and served as Managing Broker prior to that for a few years.
Proudly I can say I’m a member of the RE/MAX Hall of Fame. In 2013, I won the prestigious “30 Under 30″ National Award from REALTOR Magazine and was also named to the Real Trends America’s Best Real Estate Agents list. Trulia also ranks me in the top 1% nationwide for Realtors based upon sales and client testimonials.
I have a wide variety of experience with buyers and sellers of residential, new construction, land, retail, multi-family, commercial/industrial and investment properties. Having led up to an eight-person team during my Real Estate career, I know how to manage multiple personalities and coordinate tasks. Regardless of team size, client representation has always been priority #1. Providing consistent & prompt communication, accurate market data and promoting our client’s best interest(s) is constantly at the top of the list.
Debunking Myths To Home BuyingFinally ready to make the transition int
"Justin Schlegel was referred to me by my Dad. When I asked my dad how he found Justin, he said "he was walking around the neighborhood handing out business cards. You just don't see that kind of hustle from most Realtors®." My parents were selling their home and were extremely impressed with how Justin handled the process.
Justin has since helped my sister sell her home, and helped find my parents a rental also. So, needless to say, when my wife and I were looking for our first home, he was the natural choice. I really like to research as much as I can before making a decision, especially one this important. I actually interviewed about 3 Realtors® before I met with Justin. They always say "everyone and their mom knows a Realtor®" but the problem is, everyone's mom isn't always a good Realtor®. I really wanted to make a well researched purchase, and do my due diligence before making a decision on what Realtor® we trusted our savings and first home purchase with. When I met with Justin I was blown away by his knowledge of the market and the home buying process. He really knew all of the details, and how to use those "tricks of the trade" in our favor.
I was sure my wife and I were not going to be the easiest couple to find a house for. Like most first time home buyers, we wanted a lot more home than we could reasonably afford, and we were up against a hard deadline. Justin was AMAZING! He was able to help us navigate buying our first home flawlessly. We looked through a ton of homes in our price range and Justin was extremely patient with us. Justin was able to find us a beautiful home that checked all of the boxes, really putting in the extra effort. He has continued to impress all of us in my family. We eagerly and confidently recommend him to all of our friends and family.
