I’m Gayle Kendrick, the Director of Property Sales for AZwest. I’ve been a full-time professional Realtor since 1997. I am the co-owner of AZwest, which was begun in 2008 out of a strong desire to do real estate the right way; the way I knew it could and should be done. I'm a wife, mom and grandma. I understand the importance and challenges of home ownership.
There's not much I can't handle and very little surprises me. I'm dedicated, optimistic and experienced. I'm organized. I do not miss deadlines. Most importantly, I stay in touch. I’ll never leave you hanging or neglect calling you back. I have years of experience with foreclosures, bank-owned property, REOs, short sales and, of course, traditional sales. My motto is, “Dogged Dedication.”
I was in the US Army www.Army.mil when I met my husband of 38 years. We have four sons, the oldest and youngest are only five years apart. I knew that I couldn't effectively be both a mom and a sergeant, so I chose mom. My husband, Tim, completed his military career. Now I'm a retired wife. (I'm not sure I like the term "retired wife.") Three of our sons have served in the military. In fact, our youngest is currently on active duty. He's married and will be a dad soon.
During Tim’s career, we moved quite often. When we got to our new duty station, we'd have no place to live. It was my job to fix that. I had to hit the ground running. (Staying in a hotel for months at a time is not easily done with four boys, no matter their age.) That’s when my love of real estate began. It was always an exciting time finding the house that we'd turn into a home.
Our family has expanded from just our four sons. We have four wonderful daughters-in-law and eight grandkids, with a little girl due in July. Our eldest son has the distinction of adding the most new members to our family. He has four kids and a new life partner. They are part of a diversified household and are raising his eldest child. His three other children are currently with their Mom, our daughter-in-law.
As I said, nothing much fazes me. Life is an exciting adventure!
