We have. We did. The couple was TJ and Howard Harris. Smart, personable, funny ”“ all that and more crossed our minds as Francy and I talked with them about our brokerage. We share a lot of common philosophies when it comes to real estate, and life.
And we’re very excited that they’ve joined our growing little family at Thompson’s Realty!
Both Howard and TJ have extensive real estate backgrounds. Originally residents of Chicago the Harris’s moved to Arizona in 1997. Howard had been a licensed Illinois real estate attorney since 1957 specializing in real estate transactional matters and real estate related litigation. Howard has been an Arizona licensed Broker since 2003. The Harris team lived in Sedona for seven years where Howard was responsible for managing the development and sales of a 600 acre home site development in Rimrock.
TJ has been active in real estate for the better part of 15 years as a Realtor in Chicago and in Arizona. She also holds a real estate Brokers license, and has earned the following real estate certifications and designations; ABR, SFR, GREEN, CNE, Resort and Second Home Specialist and is a member of the Luxury Home Council and the AAR’s Master of Real Estate Society.
The Harris Team moved to Fountain Hills in 2003 and together they opened an Assist-2-Sell franchise which they operated for five years. For the past year and a half they have owned and operated Buyer’s 1st Realty. TJ and Howard feel strongly that they offer experience and knowledge that goes beyond having a real estate license.
TJ says, “Both Howard and I love living in Fountain Hills and have been proud to represent many of the home buyers and sellers throughout the Valley that have become our neighbors and/or our friends. We look forward to continuing those relationships and to building new ones!”
They own a “crazy dog” named Harry, have four grown children and are the proud grandparents of five. We are pleased and excited to welcome TJ and Howard to Thompson’s Realty!
