Property Manager | Inspector | Real Estate Agent
My wife Ashley and I have 2 beautiful children Alex (7) and Evelyn (4), we have lived in Clarkdale for 7 years and love the Verde Valley! I am originally from the San Francisco Bay Area, I moved to Sedona in 2017 and lived in Sedona and the Village of Oak Creek for 8 years. I went to the Fire Academy in Prescott and worked as a Sworn Officer with Yavapai County Sheriff's Department; Public Service was a large part of my life here in the Verde Valley. I have had the distinct pleasure of working in the Verde Valley Wine industry for well over a decade, often serving and promoting everything that makes this valley unique and desirable. My Real Estate career came out of this passion for discovering unique territory (A sense of place). Scouting new land and helping people relocate to rural Arizona became a new passion. I worked with New Gate homes, Berkshire Hathaway, and finally found my home here at Foothills Property Management. Aligning with others who share my passions and intent is my focus now, providing both homes and short-term rentals for everyone on their own path of discovery, finding their way to our little piece of Southwest living!
Repairs & Maintenance | Associate Broker
Originally a California girl, then on to travel many countries. Once settled back home, I got my appraisal license and worked at that for several years while married. Then on to working as an average secretary to several mortgage and banking companies, up the ladder over time, ending up as US Bank's Executive Assistant to their 1st VP at their main headquarters. Deciding downtown Los Angeles was not the place to be, Sedona happened and I fell into property management. I recently got my real estate brokers license to learn as much as I could, knowledge is always key. I have owned a couple of houses in my past, nice ones and not so nice ones, and now I'm a tenant. I believe I understand this business more than most, and the importance of honest sincere customer service. I am excited to say my choice here is a happy one!
Tawnia S. Funk
I began my real estate career in 1985 as a new licensee managing 20 properties in the Cottonwood/Camp Verde area. In 1988 I obtained my brokers license. My husband Brad joined me, and over the years we grew to over 500 unfurnished and furnished homes in the Verde Valley and Sedona area. In 1997 we purchased the business from the owner we were working with and formed Foothills Property Management. Brad and I will be celebrating 28 years in our business and marriage. Both of our daughters are licensed real estate agents and have been a vital part of our company’s growth. We are a dedicated and committed family owned company.
One of the strongest reasons we have retained so many properties/owners over the years is because we treat each home as if it were our own. We are also real estate investors, with first hand knowledge of what it takes to be a good landlord.
Our longstanding staff is also to be recognized for our success; we appreciate all their loyalty and dedication both to you and us. They are the greatest team that anyone could ask for.
