Hamblen Team Sponsors Child Crisis Event

by Adam Hamblen

The Hamblen Team at Realty One Group has always been focused on finding ways to give back to the Community.  Most of the community events we give back to are KID centered.  This year, our team sponsored the Child Crisis GALA Benefit Dinner.  If you don't know anything about Child Crisis, they were previously called Crisis Nursery, and their primary focus is to take in babies and toddlers who are removed from their homes for abuse and/or neglect.  There are many ways YOU can give to this organization.  You can donate money, you can volunteer to come down and hold babies, play with toddlers, etc.

Accepting Buyers Seeking Warm Climate

by Adam Hamblen

The idea of this BLOG was sparked after a conversation I had today with a client.  One of the questions I always ask new clients is "What is your motivation to move to Arizona?".  He explained to me that he lives in Watertown, New York and the current temperature was 30 degrees BELOW zero.  I was a little in disbelief so I checked google and it showed -37 degrees.  He said many of his friends over the years have moved to Arizona for the warm climate.  To add insult to his pain, I took a screen shot of my weather app on my phone and emailed him the current forecast for Peoria AZ.  

Today we set up a search for this New York client to buy a home here in Arizona.  

If you or anyone you know is looking to move to Arizona, we would love to help them make the move to a WARM CLIMATE!

Meet the Team Tuesday - Charles Jones

by Adam Hamblen

Meet the Team Tuesday

Featuring Charles Jones

Everyone on the Hamblen Team has a unique and special story on HOW their life directed them to the Hamblen Team. Back in the day, I was a school teacher in the Peoria school district and Charles was one of my junior high students. Throughout his teenage years, I would see him at church youth camps and other events. After high school, Charles attended the University of Arizona to be a high school Spanish teacher. After 6 years of teaching, Charles decided to tap into his entrepreneur spirit and launch his real estate business.  Charles is a bright and super star young man who will be successful in anything he applies himself to.  

Here is a little bit more about him: Charles Jones was born in Northern California, but has spent nearly his entire life in Arizona and considers himself a native of the state. He holds a Bachelor's Degree in Secondary Education in Spanish from The University of Arizona and is currently working on a Master's of Theological Studies from Golden Gate Baptist Theological Seminary. He was a high school Spanish teacher in the Northwest valley for six years and greatly enjoyed it. While teaching beginning and upper-levels of Spanish, he also coached, sponsored clubs, and was involved in numerous charitable events with the community. Charles' passion to help and love people made him an exceptional teacher and member of his school community.

Charles joined the Hamblen Team in 2015 and uses this same passion to help and guide clients through one of the biggest decisions of their life: buying and/or selling their home. He brings energy, enthusiasm, hard work, and integrity to the workplace every day. He is always eager to get to know clients and to help them find the perfect solution to their real estate need. 

Charles was married to his beautiful wife Amanda in November of 2014 and they absolutely love it! In his free time, he enjoys playing basketball, working out, watching sports, traveling, and spending time with his friends and family. He also greatly enjoys spending time with his church family and doing ministry, however that may look.

Meet the Team TUESDAY - Ivonne Bellew

by Adam Hamblen

Meet the Team TUESDAY is an opportunity for me to brag and showcase the super fantastic Realtors I have on my team. We are over half way through my 15 team members and I am presenting them based on seniority. This week I would like to introduce you to Ivonne Bellew.

Ivonne has been on my team since 2014. How I met her was a little interesting. My team and I were in Las Vegas for a company convention and in a large conference room with thousands of other agents. Our team is full of professionals but we tend to have some fun. Ivonne was watching us from a distance and was attracted to the team by the unity and family type atmosphere. After a few months, I hired her on the team.

Ivonne has been a Realtor since 2009 in Phoenix and brings a lot to our team. She is fun loving and very caring about other team members and our clients. She is connected with her church’s children’s ministry and an approved business partner with the Deer Valley Unified School District. She loves to volunteer and give back to the community. Ivonne is married and has 3 children. Se Habla Espanol (she is bilingual in Spanish).

Meet the Team TUESDAY - Andre Ludolph

by Adam Hamblen

Meet the Team Tuesday - ANDRE LUDOLPH

Tuesdays are my day to highlight the super rockstar Realtors that work on my team.  This week I would like to introduce you to Andre Ludolph.  I met Andre through a mutual friend and he was graduating from ASU with a degree in Business Marketing.  The word was he is a "GO GETTER" and entrepreneur minded young man.  After interviewing Andre, I could see the passion and drive in his eyes.  I knew he would take his business serious and become "Andre the Real Estate Giant."  

Here is a little more about Andre: He was born and raised in the Phoenix area and graduated from Arizona State University with a Bachelors of Science in Marketing with Magna Cum Laude honors. In addition, he earned a Minor in Religions as well as an International Business Certificate. Andre has been a member of the Hamblen Team since 2012.  Andre has always had a tremendous interest in real estate, and is fascinated by the process that goes into buying and selling a home. Andre specializes in Marketing/Advertising, especially as it applies to utilizing social media and other online resources to build brand and customer awareness. He plans to use this philosophy in the ever changing real estate market to stay on top of market trends and ultimately help clients fulfill their dreams. Andre has a passion for people and really enjoys exceeding his clients’ expectations.

Andre has learned how to work through problems, meet specific timelines, and be a leader. However, the ability to effectively communicate, listen, and build relationships with people are the skills that he has developed and values the most.  Andre is known by friends and family to have a real down to earth approach to life. In his free time he enjoys staying active and fueling his competitive spirit; regularly playing golf, tennis, and sand volleyball. Some of his other passions include hiking and travelling.  On many weekends you will find him exploring all that Arizona has to offer, going on “Epic” adventures with his church. Andre’s easygoing personality makes him easy to get along with and a pleasure to work with.

Meet the Team TUESDAY - Joey Cassidy

by Adam Hamblen

Joey Cassidy is the featured agent for this second week of Meet the Team Tuesday.

Each Tuesday, I will feature a team member and introduce them to you.

Joey is a special young man in my life. I have known Joey since he was 12 years old and in Jr High at our church. When I met Joey 20 years ago, I never imagined that he would be married to Amy, a girl in the youth group, but be working on my team selling real estate. Watching Joey mature into a fantastic man of God, loving husband, spectacular father, super Realtor, and great friend has been a blessing.

Here is a little more about him: Joey Cassidy is an Arizona native and joined the Hamblen Team in 2010. Joey is a graduate of Arizona State University with a Bachelor’s degree in Global Business and Marketing. He enjoys developing lasting relationships with his clients so he knows how to best serve their needs now and in the future. Joey realizes that the buying or selling a home is often associated with a major time of transition in his client’s lives. In this market many times the transition is due to circumstance and not necessarily by choice.

In either case Joey strives to minimize any fear or confusion by educating and guiding his clients throughout the process so that it goes as smoothly as possible. Joey’s goal is to exceed his clients’ expectations by serving them well and guiding them through their time of transition. Joey is married to his High School sweetheart and they have one daughter and one son. For the last 15 years Joey has served on the worship team at his church. In his spare time, Joey enjoys hiking, golfing, photography, playing music, and spending time with friends and family.
