I know that after writing this monthly article in the North Central News for 18 years, I always give credit to my dad, Herb, who moved to Central Phoenix in 1964 to buy into Kagel's Ladies Store at Park Central Mall and also to my idol, Barney Fife. Next was Herb's Underground, Phoenix's first disco (1970) located at Central/Clarendon and the Jockey Club Nightclub (Phoenix's first private nightclub with a disc jockey) at 22nd Street and Highland Avenue (1976-1985) and also at Central and Camelback (formally Navarre's) from1987-1995. If you ever saw the move “Waiting to Exhale” with Whitney Houston, Angela Bassett and Forrest Whitaker, it was filmed at our Central Club.
My point here is that I feel my dad gave me an edge to sell real estate in Central Phoenix because I have been here now full time since 1978. Dad introduced me to a lot of families and now those little trouble makers just like I was … are now buying homes from me the past 30 years. Many agents who sell in Arcadia, PV and Scottsdale always laughed when I told them I specialized in Central Phoenix and I truly believe I have an edge here because of my area knowledge and believing in this area when many realtors would not go west of 24th Street.
I was honored in September to be ranked the #5 ranked individual realtor (NO TEAM) in Maricopa County by the Phoenix Business Journal for sales volume in 2020 and also ranked this month by Phoenix Magazine as one of the top residential agents in the Valley.
I have sold 95 homes so far in 2021 for all different prices but I am especially proud to say that I have sold 22 luxury homes priced at more than $1 million, including two that sold for over $2 million and one for over $3.5 million. I don't have a team so when you hire me, you get me (I stole that from Jeff Polett!!). Please give me a shot to sell your home or help you or your family purchase a home. I have to go because The Andy Griffith Show is on!!
Please give me a call at 602-761-4646.
Thanks! Bobby Lieb
