Clients Are My Family

If you want to know anything about Silverleaf, the premier north Scottsdale enclave where breathtaking Spanish and Mediterranean-inspired homes start at $1.3 million, just ask Debbie Beardsley. The veteran real estate agent primarily sells properties within the gated community, and she was part of the sales team the developers assembled more than 15 years ago, when Silverleaf was only an idea. She is fiercely proud that what that team envisioned has come to fruition – a unique neighborhood of stunning homes with dramatic desert views and a focus on healthy living.

“We were standing on dirt roads with ruts in the ground, trying to explain to people that there were going to be parks and trees and homes, and it is all here now,” recalls Beardsley, adding that she’s stood on all the lots and been in nearly all the homes in the development. “We kept the promises we made, and Silverleaf looks and feels like we believed it would. It’s a vibrant, active community and I’m blessed to be a part of it”. Originally from Indiana, Beardsley discovered Arizona on family vacations, and quickly became enamored with the Valley. She considers moving to the Grand Canyon State in the 1980’s one of the best things she and her husband, Jeff, have ever done.

The couple, with three grown children and six grandchildren, have had the opportunity to work together several times in the real estate industry and are thrilled that their son, Andrew, is following in their professional footsteps. He has been his mom’s business partner for five years. “He has been instrumental in both the success and growth of my business” Beardsley says. “It is so gratifying to me, and certainly a relief, to have a partner that I trust totally with my clients, residents and members”.

Beardsley’s early career was in teaching, and it was only when her youngest child was in high school that she began looking around “for something to do” and earned her license on a lark. It’s been full-speed ahead ever since. “It didn’t occur to me that it was going to be a full-time career and become my passion;’ says Beardsley, who had $43 million in real estate either sold or pending in the first couple of months of 2016, but I’m blessed with a huge referral base, and my clients are my family. I love the people I work for and with, and I say probably once a month, “This is my second family.”
