Lisa Westcott-Wadey promotes ethics, professionalism in Valley’s luxury home market
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. – While some expect a summer lull in the Phoenix area real estate industry, Arizona top producing agent Lisa Westcott-Wadey and her team, The W Group with Russ Lyon Sotheby’s International Realty, say May and June are huge closing months for luxury home sales.
“People are looking in the Valley for their second or third home,” says Westcott-Wadey. “A lot of them will purchase during the summer, go back to their summer home, and have any renovations done and furniture ready to go by October when they return.”
Westcott-Wadey says the greater Phoenix area currently is a very balanced market. “We aren’t seeing emotional buyers, and sellers aren’t desperate. We’re not in a downturn either. Buyers are so much more cautious now and sellers aren’t giving anything away. It’s a healthy situation.”
Among Westcott-Wadey’s passions is working with celebrities and models for photo shoot locations in luxury-home settings. She recently promoted an $8.2 million home in the Silverleaf community of Scottsdale with Baywatch actress Gena Lee Nolin. “Lisa helped me find my beautiful Scottsdale home,” says Nolin. “We’ve developed a wonderful friendship and I know I can count on her to find the perfect house and that really special location to showcase.”
Other on-the-go professionals like ESPN Anchor Sage Steele trust Westcott-Wadey to manage their real estate transactions in a professional, efficient and friendly manner. “After years of working with a plethora of real estate agents across the country, I cannot speak highly enough about our experience with Lisa, both as a buyer and a seller,” says Steele. “With three children and an extremely busy work travel schedule, the fact that I have been able to rely on Lisa and her team to handle everything has been priceless. Lisa understands how personal buying and selling a home can be, and I am so thankful to have finally found a Realtor who truly cares about the satisfaction and happiness of me and my entire family!”
Westcott-Wadey has sold more than $360 million in real estate and is in the top 1 percent in Arizona for sales. Almost all of her business is the result of referrals. The luxury residential specialist attributes her extraordinary success to professionalism and ethics, which she promotes as the founding chair of the Professionalism and Ethics Task Force in her work with the Scottsdale Area Association of Realtors.
“I want to make a change in the perception that the public has about real estate agents being unprofessional and unethical. We are representing individuals with one of the biggest investments they will make. It’s so important for Realtors to dress and behave in a manner that says we’re taking their investment very seriously.”
Westcott-Wadey earned her real estate license in 2002. She was born in Montana and raised in the Pacific Northwest. After a week-long visit to New York City as a young woman, she longed for open spaces and sunshine. “My Dad always talked about Arizona. He was a golfer and raised me to have golf in my blood. I began calling nanny agencies in Phoenix for work. It was through that connection that I met the original developer of the Four Seasons. I enjoyed the real estate side of the industry and love people.”
Westcott-Wadey was named the #1 Realtor at Russ Lyon Sotheby’s International Realty for 2014 and the first quarter of 2015. She remains in the top five. Westcott-Wadey also has been recognized as a Top 10 Producer in Homes & Land magazine and a top agent in the Phoenix Business Journal. In addition, she’s a member of Stanford’s Who’s Who, The Institute for Luxury Home Market Million Dollar Guild and Top Agent Network.
“The thing that differentiates Lisa Westcott-Wadey from other agents is a genuine care for the individual needs of each of her clients,” says co-worker Lisa Leopold. “No matter the situation, she approaches clients and other parties to a transaction with a sincere warmth and professionalism.”
Westcott-Wadey also is an active community volunteer. She serves on the advisory board at Scottsdale Honor Health. She participates in the Care Fund, raising money for Arizona families who face financial hardship while caring for a sick or injured child, and supports The First Tee, which provides golf gear for underprivileged children. “Children learn so much more than just how to play golf. They are learning life skills through the game, along with values like integrity and honesty,” she says.
