The AZRNR Team

RANCE FLADELAND, PLLC  REALTOR, RSPS, RDCS, ABR, PPS, C2EX                                         

OWNER: AZRNR - Equity Arizona Real Estate (Arizona Realty & Retreats) 

Rance is no stranger to the real estate and short term property management industry. He's the prodigy of parents who were both successful entrepreneurs involved in real estate investing, property management, business development, and finance. He started his education in Real Estate around age 8 when his parents would attempt to educate him on the important aspects of buying, selling, and investing in appreciable real estate opportunities. 

Rance says... "Although I was very young when I began learning certain aspects of the real estate industry, I was able to develop a true understanding of the skills and abilities necessary to put a variety of transactions together from both a buyer and a seller standpoint. At around age 10, I started buying gum and candy in bulk to take to school and sell for a profit. That was my first personal experience with truly learning how transactions worked, and the importance of honest and transparent dealings with buyers and sellers. However as an adult, it's ultimately the relationships that I've built with my clients, along with the many opportunities I've been blessed with to help them achieve their goals that's provide me with a sense of accomplishment. I don't suppose at 8 or 9 years old I ever realized how important the education my parents were instilling would be later in life, but I'm glad they did. I only hope I can pass that down to my kids as well."

In 2014, after a successful 16 year career in Non-Invasive Cardiology, Rance obtained his real estate license and quickly made his mark in the vacation rental industry. By year one he had became recognized by The National  Association of Realtors as Arizona's Premier Designated Resort & Second Home Property Specialist (RSPS) with a specific focus on Vacation Rental Management and Second Home Sales. He has since been awarded The National BrokerAgent™ Advisor "Certificate of Excellence"  6 consecutive years (2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020, 2021), The Five Star Award in 2020 & 2021, The 'Top 100 Member in Market' Award (2021), The National Association of REALTORS® ABR Designation, the NAR® C2EX Endorsement for his "Commitment to Excellence", and in 2018 Rance was inducted to the President's Circle For Outstanding Sales Achievement.

Rance has worked with the Arizona State Governors Office and Arizona State Senate, as well as members of the Arizona Supreme Court, to evaluate current legislation and helped establish industry standards. He has worked with local and state Realtor Associations and has been a Premier Member of The International Consortium of Real Estate Agents, as well as, a member of The National Association of REALTORS®, The International REALTOR Association, The Arizona Association of REALTORS®, The Southeast & West Valley Regional Association of REALTORS®, and both the Arizona Regional Multiple Listing Service (ARMLS) and the Latin Multiple Listing Service (serving Central & South America). Rance has held a Board positions on the SEVRAR Property Management Committee and worked with the Arizona Short Term Rental Legislation Work Group while currently leading an elite team of Vacation Rental professionals.

Rance's experience is vast, and he has helped buyers, sellers, investors, and renters from all walks of life, and from a multitude of countries worldwide.  We're lucky to see daily how he strives to exceed the expectations his clients may have experienced elsewhere, and the encouragement he provides to inspire us and those he meets. By working with Rance, you are choosing an agent that truly focuses on the relationships he builds with his clients and the determination he has to see them succeed. He represents you with the knowledge, integrity, resources, and the capabilities needed in a top botch agent, and is dedicated to superior service while always sensitive to his client’ buying, selling and investing needs and looking after his clients best interest. 


Kimberly could honestly pass for wonder woman, and her compassion and big heart deserves an honorary round of applause! Not only has she played an integral role as Director of Operations at AZRNR, but she also oversees and manages all vendor and guest services, as well as short term client relations. No doubt her professional approach to 5-STAR service has helped AZRNR achieve our 5-STAR status, a direct reflection of the hard work she puts in each and every day to ensure our managed properties are kept in top-notch condition and always ready for guest's arrival. The combination of vision and dedication create the perfect environment for business success and Kimberly's exceptional personality combined with industry knowledge and attention to detail sets the stage for our clients ongoing satisfaction!

When Kimberly's not field calls and guest inquiries, or running around with an inspection sheet in one hand, a phone in the other, she enjoys traveling, exploring new places, and creating new adventures. Although she has a tenacity for vacation rental management, she also wants to continue to broaden her horizons with sales and long term property management opportunities as well. 


Marlys is not only Rance's mom, but she's also an avid real estate investor, designer, research coordinator, financial consultant & overall real estate business assistant. Not only is she a successful businesswoman, but also an accomplished professional actress! 

Since the early 1980s, Marlys has been actively involved in Real Estate investing and property management across the country. She's also an avid entrepreneur who's founded numerous business ventures along with a Christian based non-profit organization. Her 40+ years in business have proven to be a significant benefit to both AZRNR and the clients we serve. By providing significant back-office & research assistance with sales transactions, data management & channel integration, unique negotiation strategies, creative financing, reservations & booking coordination, concierge services, and overall client/guest satisfaction, Marlys has helped launch Arizona Realty & Retreats to its current position. 

Though she's always considered obtaining her real estate license, she discovered self-managing her own numerous investment properties across the country was plenty fulfilling. She's a woman who's accustomed to wearing many hats, both figuratively and literally. She's been featured in numerous roles on both the small and big screens including; Tim Timmerman: Hope of America (2017),  Alienate (2016), Wayward: The Prodigal Son (2014), Dear Dumb Diary (2013), and Christmas Oranges (2012). These roles, along with many others she's played, can be found on her IMDb profile page by clicking on her photo!


We're pretty sure Ian's been in the real estate business about as long as God's dog, and there's some question about how many cactus he's lifted his leg on along the way, but one thing's for sure, he has built quite a reputation as one of Maricopa County's Premier Real Estate Brokers.

Don't let the long hair fool you, under that mop (which we're happy to say has been trimmed up nicely) is a creative and brilliant mind that keeps us on our toes. He's kind of like a mixture between a 1970's Rock Star and Rainman! Ian's always there to provide his agents with the resources and information we need, and loves to assist buyers and sellers with their real estate transactions as well.

As we look to expand our offices throughout Arizona, we're happy to have a broker with the extensive training needed to help us succeed in the latest real estate strategies. Ian is a great guy and a magnificent broker, with a big heart. Not only does he have a tremendous amount of real estate experience, but life experience as well and he serves his community tremendously by helping guide youth at risk to turn their lives around.

When Ian isn't closing deals on his own, overseeing agent transactions, or basking in the pool tanning his Adonis like body under the Arizona sun, he lives his life by the motto "Some guys play hard to get.. I play hard to want"!
