Hi! I’m Josie M. McCarthy. Thank you for your interest in exploring Arizona luxury real estate with me.

Arizona real estate made simple

With 15 years of experience in the real estate industry, I have first-hand knowledge of how intimidating buying and selling a home can be. This is why I choose to approach all of my transactions with a “keep it simple” philosophy.

As your realtor in Phoenix, AZ, it is my goal to ensure that you enjoy buying, selling, or investing in Arizona real estate. After all, you deserve a real estate professional who will:

  • Actively listen to your real estate needs, concerns, and feedback;
  • Communicate with you regularly for updates;
  • Coordinate with other professionals and contractors behind the scenes and;
  • Make sure you find your dream home as smoothly as possible.

More about Josie M. McCarthy

Clients often ask me why I have such great insight on what it’s like to relocate to Arizona. It’s simply because I used to be in their shoes.

I spent my childhood and formative years in Montana, hundreds of miles away from the Grand Canyon state. There, I developed my aptitude for business and graduated with a degree on Business Management from The University of Montana.

An interest in real estate became a passion

By that time, I already nursed a healthy dose of interest on the real estate industry. Fresh from university, I enrolled in Missoula’s Connole-Morton Real Estate School in June 2003, after which I successfully passed my Montana Real Estate Licensee Exam. Shortly after, I joined the industry and worked as a Sales Assistant.

Armed with my knowledge in business management and real estate, I packed my bags and journeyed south to Arizona in 2006. After obtaining my Arizona Real Estate license in that same year, I set out to broaden my horizons. And they say the rest is history.

We’d make a great team

I would be delighted to help you find your dream home in Arizona. Aside from Phoenix, Cave Creek, and Desert Hills, I can also show you around the following communities:
