Would you believe I've had the opportunity to relocate over 26 times including Arizona and Germany? It's true and it's why “home” is my passion! Whether it was as a military dependent or during my career, each location I've had the privilege to call home brings fond memories of new adventures. I consider it my honor to assist you in either finding your new home or assisting in your move to your next adventure! As your Scottsdale Realtor, it is my goal to provide superior service before, during and after your successful transaction.
I'm a graduate of the University of Kansas, (Rock Chalk Jayhawk!). After a career in corporate financial planning I launched my real estate career in Williamsburg, Va. As a full time realtor during the, shall we say "challenging years" of real estate, I made it my mission to provide innovative solutions and insightful real estate advice to deliver an exceptional real estate experience. The icing on the cake? Many of my clients have become lifelong friends!
Uniquely, I bring with me a current and relevant understanding of the challenges in today’s real estate market, with a successful personal home sale and purchase within the last 9 months.
My recent move brings my husband and me back to Arizona, where our children were born. We have a daughter at The Ohio State University and a son working in the golf industry. It is with great enthusiasm that I consider Scottsdale to be an amazing place to call home. I am proud to have affiliated with Russ Lyon | Sotheby’s International Realty, the leader in local and international real estate.
Selling a home? I bring over a decade of real estate experience in the luxury home market. Combined with the global marketing exposure of Russ Lyon | Sotheby’s International Realty, I'll provide you with a superior level of service in your real estate representation. With the highest market share of luxury homes in the valley, we'll successfully utilize local and worldwide resources to get you results. Our proven strategies enable us to position, market and obtain the highest price for your Scottsdale home in the shortest amount of time.
Thinking about purchasing? The vast amount of real estate information available can be quite overwhelming and often outdated and/or inaccurate. Which is exactly why you need an experienced Realtor working for you! To locate your dream home, I'll ask key questions and carefully listen to your specific goals, wish list, budget and lifestyle desired. Because real estate is truly local, I can deliver the inside scoop. My experience and access to local resources provides you an uncompromised level of service.
Real estate transactions have become increasingly complicated and I am committed to securing a strong education foundation. This year's goal is to earn my Graduate, REALTOR Institute (GRI) designation. I am proud to have earned my Senior Real Estate Specialist (SRES) and Short Sales and Foreclosure Resource (SFR) designations.
Whether you're buying or selling, let me go to work for you! Contact me today at (623)262-2830 or Lorraine.Funk@RussLyon.com.
Thank you for your time, I look forward to assisting you, so that you too may…Love Where You Live ~ Scottsdale!
