Arizona Realty & Retreats


The AZRNR Team


RANCE FLADELAND, REALTOR, RSPS, ABR, PPS, OWNER - AZRNR (ARIZONA REALTY & RETREATS) & ENTREPRENEUR

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

After receiving his real estate license in 2014, Rance quickly made his mark by becoming 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 Honors Achievement 5 consecutive years (2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020), and in 2018 was inducted to the President's Circle For Outstanding Sales Achievement. Rance has worked with the Arizona State Governors Office and State Senate to evaluate current legislation and establish future industry standards, as well as members of the Arizona Supreme Court. He has worked with local and state Realtor associations and is a Premier Member of The International Consortium of Real Estate Agents, The National Association of REALTORS, The International REALTOR Association, The Arizona Association of REALTORS, WeSERV (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 Board positions on the SEVRAR Property Management Committee and worked with the Arizona Short Term Rental Legislation Work Group while currently leading our elite team of designated 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. 

Rance says... "Although I was very young when I began absorbing certain aspects of the real estate industry I quickly developed an understanding of the skills and abilities necessary to put a variety of transactions together from both a buyer and a seller standpoint, so around age 10 I started buying gum and candy in bulk when my parents went to the grocery store, and then I'd take it to school and sell it for a profit. However, as an adult, it's ultimately the relationships that I've been able to build with my clients and the community, along with the many opportunities that I've had to help my clients achieve their goals that provide me with a sense of accomplishment. I don't suppose at 8 or 10 years old I ever realized how important the education my parents were instilling would be later in life."

By working with Rance, you are choosing an agent that truly focuses on the relationships he builds with his clients and we see daily how he exceeds the expectations his clients may have experienced elsewhere. Rance represents you with the knowledge, integrity, the resources, and the capabilities to succeed, he's dedicated to superior service, and while always looking after his clients best interest, is sensitive to his client’ buying, selling and investing needs.


KIMBERLY EWING,  DIRECTOR OF  OPERATIONS, SHORT-TERM RENTAL MANAGEMENT

Kimberly could honestly pass for wonder woman, and her entire crew over at Doolittle Services, LLC 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 her own high-end business at Doolittle Services, LLC. Her experienced, professional 5-STAR housekeepers, landscapers, handymen/handywomen, pool service technicians, carpet cleaners and more, have helped us achieve our 5-STAR status. Clearly a direct reflection of the hard work she puts in each and every day to ensure our vacation rental properties are kept in top-notch condition, and always ready for guest's arrival. Although we're not the only company that uses Doolittle Services works with, they are the only provider exclusively used by AZRNR. The combination of vision and dedication create the perfect environment for business success and Kimberly's exceptional personality combined with industry knowledge sets the stage for our clients ongoing satisfaction!

When Kimberly's not running around with an inspection sheet in one hand, a phone in the other, and a laptop under her arm, she enjoys traveling to new places, exploring new experiences, and creating new adventures. She's currently working towards obtaining her real estate license and wants to continue to focus on sales and professional long term property management. In the meantime check out the other services she currently offers over on the Doolittle Services Website and book your appointments now!


MARLYS FLADELAND, CONSULTANT, INVESTOR, RE ASSISTANT, ACTRESS

Marlys is not only Rance's mom, but she's also an avid real estate investor, designer, technical coordinator, financial consultant & overall business assistant. 

Since the early 1980s, Marlys has been actively involved in Real Estate investing and property management. She's also founded numerous business ventures and a non-profit organization, which has served the company and the community well. Her 40+ years in business have proven to be a significant benefit to both AZRNR and the clients they serve. By providing significant back-office knowledge of website development, channel integration, negotiation strategies, creative financing, bookings, reservations, concierge services, and overall renter satisfaction, Marlys has helped launch Arizona Realty & Retreats to its 5-star status. 

While she's always considered obtaining her real estate license, she discovered self-managing her own numerous investment properties across the country was plenty fulfilling and she's a woman who's become accustomed to wearing many hats both figuratively and literally. By not only being a successful businesswoman, but also an accomplished professional actress who's been featured in numerous roles on both the small and big screens. Many of the roles she's played can be found on her IMDb profile page by clicking on her photo!


Ian Chait, DESIGNATED BROKER, BRANCH MANAGER EQUITY ARIZONA REAL ESTATE

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 with a big heart and magnificent broker. 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"!
