Home... on the surface, it is bricks, lumber, glass and tile, but home is so much more... it is movie nights, sleeping in, first steps and Thanksgiving. Finding just the right place to take root is equal parts exciting and challenging requiring equal parts art and science. Realtor, Hillary Gurley has that perfect blend to help you open the door to your new home.
She certainly values the power of home. As the only child of an Air Force fighter pilot father, Hillary moved seven times between the ages of two to 15. While she navigated her way through school cafeterias around the world, her mother frequently reprised the role of an interior designer creating a warm nest, no matter the zip code.
After attending Arizona State University and marrying her college sweetheart, Hillary cultivated a life in Arizona with deep roots. A series of marketing jobs in the home building industry and an insatiable entrepreneurial appetite lead to a career helping people find their own meaning of home.
She works tirelessly seeking out properties, negotiating contracts and sharing resources with her clients. She knows the Arcadia neighborhood like the back of her hand, but that doesn’t preclude her from working in the rest of Metro Phoenix. She is as comfortable finding a family home for someone in McCormick Ranch as she is helping empty-nesters select the perfect private golf club in North Scottsdale or the luxury buyer looking for an estate property in Paradise Valley. Hillary treasures helping first-time buyers make the largest purchase decision of their life as much as she loves the challenge of juggling the move-up buyer who has two coordinated transactions running side by side, often (in the case of relocating buyers) in two different states.
She understands that each home she sells has a story to tell and tailors her messaging to showcase your home in its brightest light by seeking out just the right marketing vehicles. Using market data, she will competitively position your home to reach the greatest audience in the shortest amount of time.
When she isn’t playing property matchmaker, she is a cheerleader, supporting her two boys on the sidelines of lacrosse fields and high school tracks across the Valley of the Sun. One of her goals is to hike the Arizona Trail, passage by passage. The 800-mile trail stretches the length of Arizona, from the border of Mexico to Utah. She has hiked over 125 miles (7 of the 43 passages).
