Andrew BloomCEO | Senior Partner | REALTOR®
Andrew has earned the “Circle of Legends” award, an accomplishment achieved by less than 1% of REALTORS® worldwide. Becoming one of the top agents in the world was never the original plan. Andrew had the most humble beginnings in Los Angeles where at the age of 11 he was removed from his home by California Social Services when his parents could no longer legally care for him. His mother suffered from depression and his father spent time in and out of mental hospitals with multiple diagnoses.This early intervention inspired him to earn his bachelor’s in Social Work at ASU and work in low income housing projects as a client advocate. He learned the importance of protecting his clients as he advocated for better housing conditions. Andrew and his wife Babs have been married for more than 25 years and have raised their 4 children in their family home, which is host to numerous charitable events annually and affectionately known as “Casa de Bloom”. The main event is the annual Super Bowl Party benefiting Phoenix Children's Hospital.
In 2014, on his 20th anniversary in real estate, Andrew earned international fame among global real estate leaders when he became the 312th agent inducted into the esteemed Circle of Legends. Andrew has personally sold over $1.5 billion in residential resale real estate and runs the top real estate team in Arizona.

What would you like potential clients to know about you? "I put myself in their shoes and give them advice as if it were my own personal investment. I strive to earn my clients' trust and business for life. Almost 100% of my business is from past clients hiring me again or referring me to their friends, family or co-workers."
What does it take to be the best in the business? "You need to be available 24/7 and constantly network in order to be an expert in your field. I have sold many off-market listings by my participation in local networking groups."
How do you give back to your community? "We have been sponsoring school and community activities ever since I can remember. Additionally, we donate a portion of every closing to Phoenix Children's Hospital. Our annual Super Bowl Party is another great way to give back and raise awareness for PCH."
Who is your typical client? "I work with a lot of sellers since I have a reputation for doing what it takes to ensure my clients receive the best possible price. I also work with investors, clients who are upsizing or downsizing, first-time home buyers, people relocating and distressed sellers. I specialize in helping buyers purchase bank-owned or short sale properties."
What keeps you interested in real estate? "I'm constantly meeting new clients and am also thrilled when I can work with past clients again. Every day is unique. I get to spend time doing my favorite thing, helping clients in the Phoenix market."

Dina StevensExecutive Assistant | REALTOR®
Shelly MayolTransaction Manager | REALTOR®
I have been assisting clients with the sale and purchase of their properties since 1997, and I am passionate about providing them with unparalleled customer service, smooth transactions and peace of mind.
As the saying goes “the devil is in the details”, it is my responsibility to understand your needs whether you have a home to sell or wanting a home to purchase. I have a unique background in real estate, learning the ropes “behind the scenes”, managing all aspects related to the sale and closings of homes. This includes, ensuring important deadlines are met, and all contingencies be released. This experience has given me knowledge and confidence to pass along to my clients. I will personally guide you through every step of the real estate process.
Originally from California, I moved to Arizona when I was 10 years old and have spent the better half of my “wonder years” here in the Valley of the Sun. When I’m not assisting clients, you can find me spending time with the most important people in my life – my family and friends. I have two beautiful daughters that are currently pursuing their dreams, and the best granddaughter that reminds me of how beautiful life is.
I look forward to helping you achieve one of your dreams.

She started her career in real estate in a supporting role with a new- build luxury high rise in Scottsdale. She quickly saw how exciting and rewarding real estate could be and was licensed right before the market crash and had to navigate her way as a new Realtor in those tough times. She worked in REOs for nearly 4 years, during the economic downturn. She co-managed a team, worked closely with bank asset managers, listed and co-listed several properties & provided transaction management. The REO team typically held anywhere from 80-100 listings at a time and closed 30+ transactions a month. She is experienced in communicating with corporations , investors and individual Buyers & Sellers.
Rachelle then joined a real estate investment firm and gained knowledge of buying & selling apartment buildings, hotels and the workings of diversified investment funds for accredited investors. Around that same time she was also offered the opportunity to be a consultant for corporate relocation transferees, and has continued to do that since 2014. She’s also been working with investors & home Buyers for last few years, focused in multi-family and traditional home sales.
She loves connecting with people on a very human level and helping others to achieve their goals. Her sales approach is one of relationship building, listening, educating and consulting. Her goal is always to be considered a trusted & ethical advisor.

With over 25 years as a sales executive, I have had the privilege of handling several thousand relocation’s for families in all areas of the world. I originally found my passion for relocation and real estate at the young age of 19 and is the only career I’ve ever known. Working with corporations to relocate their talent around the world is my expertise. Working with families to sell and find their dream home as a local real estate agent is my passion and purpose. Together, it’s the perfect combination and go hand in hand. It’s been a natural progression for me to combine the two skill sets and work with clients and sell luxury real estate and relocation service offerings to families in beautiful Arizona.
Expanding my reach from big-picture relocation services to include personal, one-on-one real estate service may seem a little grandiose, however here’s what I’ve learned from being in relocation all of these years: The best experiences are the extraordinary ones. When I say extraordinary, I mean extra ordinary, something that lies outside of the expectations and makes an exceptional positive impression on the minds and hearts of those in the experience. My goals are to 1) find the relocation services you need and/or sell/purchase the home you’ve dreamed of, 2) listen, communicate, hustle, and be consistent everyday 3) create life-long relationships knowing you can always count on me to deliver.
A little personal information about me…. I am a mother of three amazing children and enjoy fitness, hiking, golf, traveling, spending time with my family and growing in my spiritual walk everyday.
