Why I work with Physicians in the Phoenix Metro Area in Arizona

I am married to an Internal Medicine Physician who owns his own practice here in Phoenix, Arizona. We met when he was in medical school so I have been part of the whole journey from medical school graduation, through matching for residency, getting employed after residency,  all through to helping him set up and manage his practice twice. We have experienced relocations, credentialing, board certifications and recertifications, so I undertsand the life of living with medical professionals. 


Due to the long hours during residency, being on call, having to do locum, etc means less availability so I have had to do a lot of research when it comes to not just real estate but other areas of our lives and present him with options, pros and cons, so I understand what it takes to be able to work with doctors. Coming from a science background with a major in Biochemistry,  I also apply analytical, fact based and data driven contributions to every real estate transaction.

Doctors I work with

Medical Students

Excited you matched with a residency program and ready to move to the Phoenix Area to start your journey towards your contribution to medicine. Let’s get you into a home so you can start building equity which you can use to move up after residency. Our loan partners offer physician loans that calculate your debt to income ratio differently for medical students and residents.

Residents & Fellows

Currently in a program as an intern, resident or fellow, then having a place to call home for stability so you can relax post call and an added advantage of not having to renew a lease every year is something to consider. Getting a starter home or condo with the ability to sell, after graduating from your program is possible in the Phoenix area. This is a step towards building equity or using it as an investment .

Employed Physicians

Whether you are new to the Phoenix area after graduating from a program or just got a job offer, we don’t have to wait for you to finish your credentialing before we we move you into a home. I work with partners that offer physician loans that can get you to receive keys to your new home up to 90 days before your start date so you can move in and get settled before you start work.

Self Employed Physicians

Being a self employed or 1099 physician is no easy feat. I partner with loan companies that can get you a mortgage without W2s and waive mortgage insurance with or without a downpayment so you can invest your funds into your practice. Managing a practice and navigating issues like meaningful use, care gaps etc is stressful enough, so focus on your patients while I work for you.

Homes for Doctors in Arizona

A home fit for your lifestyle is paramount. Some residents, fellows, attendings and doctors prefer to be close to the hospital so they can have easy access to the hospitals when on call. Others prefer to stay away so they can enjoy the peace and tranquility of being post call or having a weekend off. There is a neighborhood which is a fit for your lifestyle, irrespective of which hospital in the valley you will be working in. Let’s start a conversation to  find out which neighborhood is right for you.
