CENTURY 21 Arizona Foothills began its real estate journey in 1988 as a small, non-branded boutique office with just four agents called Ahwatukee Foothills Realty. Over a year later, we joined the CENTURY 21 family and began growing our company. Currently, CENTURY 21 Arizona Foothills has seven strategically placed branch offices and three satellite offices to serve the entire Greater Phoenix area.
The real estate market is always changing and as a result, our agents regularly attend training sessions and events to further their knowledge and be sure that they are focusing on current conditions that affect today's buyers and sellers. Our goal is to make sure that we satisfy the special needs of all our clients and at the same time make the process and transactions go as smoothly as possible.
"Working with my Century 21 Arizona Foothills agent has been a true pleasure. I relocated to the Phoenix area and quickly determined that the Gilbert area was a great fit for my family after meeting with our agent. Our agent was able to explain the Arizona real estate market to us and help us narrow down our home search based on our criteria. We love our new home in Gilbert and would recommend Century 21 Arizona Foothills to anyone!"
