Bobby Lieb’s name is synonymous with North Central Phoenix real estate. He has been the top-selling realtor in North Central Phoenix since 2001, having served the market since 1993. He has also ranked as HomeSmart’s #1 Top Performing Realtor every year since he joined them in 2011. This includes his sales not only in North Central Phoenix, but also in the Biltmore, Arcadia, Scottsdale, and Paradise Valley areas. Along with traditional listings, Bobby is experienced in dealing with high-profile clients and court-ordered and bank-owned sales.
Bobby’s sales philosophy is simple: be honest, be focused, know your client, and know the community. Having lived and worked in Central Phoenix since 1978, he has seen the area grow and change, and he has developed a network that proves essential in providing his clients with exceptional service. And while North Central Phoenix and the Biltmore area are his niche market, Bobby is not exclusive and has represented buyers and sellers across the Valley.
Not one to shy away from a challenge, when the pandemic hit in 2020 Bobby quickly worked to implement safety protocols and made the necessary changes in the sales process for his clients. In doing so, Bobby had his most successful year ever with over $93 million in sales for the year.
His tenure and knowledge positions Bobby as a local expert in the real estate industry and he is frequently interviewed about the local and national real estate markets. In addition to providing interviews to many local television and news outlets, he also has a monthly column in the North Central News newspaper.
This expertise has also made Bobby a go-to for some of the most notable high-profile home sales in the Biltmore, Arcadia, Paradise Valley, and North Central Phoenix area.
In 1996, Bobby represented a notable US Senator and his wife in the sale of their 11,000-square-foot personal residence located in North Central Phoenix, closing for $3.2 million. He later represented the new owners in their short sale in 2010, selling it a second time for $1.8 million. In 2015, Bobby sold the estate for the third time for $2 million.
Some of Bobby’s other local celebrity clients have included:
- Rickey Henderson, all-time leading base stealer and baseball Hall of Famer
- Reggie Sanders, Arizona Diamondbacks outfielder
- Rodney Rogers, Phoenix Suns Player
- Eric Hill, Arizona Cardinals linebacker
- Mike Comrie, NHL player
- Paul Johnson, former Phoenix Mayor
- Phil Gordon, former Phoenix Mayor
- David Gonzales, US Marshall
Over the years and through the changing economy, Bobby has also become familiar with nontraditional sales to best serve his clients. Because challenging times arise for people at various points in their lives, Bobby makes himself available as a Special Real Estate Commissioner to the bankruptcy and family superior courts. Serving in this capacity, he works with the Valley’s top lawyers on behalf of their clients to list and sell homes and facilitates resolving the legal issues associated with these assets. During his career, Bobby has been involved with more than 325 court-ordered home sales.
He is also well versed in representing sellers through the short-sale process and working with banks in REO/Bank Owned Sales. While the process can be arduous and complicated for a buyer or seller, Bobby’s familiarity with its nuances makes him an invaluable resource.
Bobby’s drive to succeed and be the best in the industry keeps him continuously working to stay on top of the latest information, trends, and technologies that can help best serve his clients. He prides himself on his availability, always answering his phone and checking his emails. If you are interested in buying or selling your home and want to work with the valley’s top realtor, reach out to Bobby today.
As a seller, I expected my agent to be an advocate for me and put me first. He did not offer to counter any offers that were made and strongly made a case for the buyer. I felt he was more interested in closing the sale of the home than working to get the best price for me, however he did get a great price for the buyer, who he represented when the house was later sold. For the above reasons, I would not recommend him to my friends or family, regardless if they were buying or selling a home.He does have a wonderful assistant who is very smart, responsive and enjoyable to work with.
Helped me buy and sell homes
Bobby helped me but my first house and has now helped me upgrade to my new home. Both situations, Bobby was able to put me in an advantaged position against other buyers due to his unmatched knowledge of the North Central Phoenix market and upcoming home offerings. He also was able to accurately price and sell our home within 3 days. I would recommend Bobby to anyone looking to purchase or sell a home.
I don’t have enough positive things to say about Bobby Lieb that would do him justice. He is the most professional, attention-to-detail, real estate agent I have EVER dealt with. He does what he says he’s going to do. Having coming out of a bad experience with a heavily advertised realtor firm in the Phoenix area (essentially wasting a month of my time), I was very skeptical, but Bobby proved them all wrong. I didn’t have a stream of people viewing my house. He vetted out the Buyer and was able to negotiate in a way that was fair to all involved. Some people have a knack for this without being pushy, and Bobby definitely has that skillset. Not only does he possess extreme business acumen, but his team and staff behind him do as well. I was fortunate too, as Bobby said, to also have an excellent agent on the Buyer’s side as well so that made the sale almost effortless on my part. He has restored my faith in real estate agents! If you have any doubt, I suggest you give him a call--he answers all his calls himself! You just might be the next one singing his praise!
Working with MaryAnn and Bobby Lieb was a pleasure. They were extremely responsive, and knowledgeable and took excellent care of my family. I would absolutely use them again and recommend them to anyone.

Bobby is a true gem in the valley. He was proactive with every aspect of the process, from listing to closing. The small team he has assembled makes it even easier and convenient...not sure I ever left a message or did not get a timely response, without going through receptionists or assistants. I enjoyed the process and felt well looked after. Thank you Bobbi and Kathy!
