Specializing in McCormick Ranch and Greater Central Scottsdale
2023 is Gene Montemore’s 22nd year in Arizona real estate, a successful blend of residential property and vacant land experience. During his career, Gene has closed over 950 transactions focusing on the McCormick Ranch / Central Scottsdale submarket and raw land, infill property, and single-family lots across Maricopa and Pinal Counties.
Gene proudly refers to McCormick Ranch as the greatest neighborhood in Scottsdale with its trademark greenbelts, lakes, and A+ school, making it an uncommonly different place to live, work, and play. With a residential hyper-focus on McCormick Ranch, Gene leads a couple of community-based activities, including a neighborhood social media site that includes over 7,600 registered residents, and served as President of McCormick Ranch Little League for over 5 years. He proudly supports “the 3C’s”: Cochise Elementary, Cocopah Middle, and Chaparral High Schools. This deep community knowledge and involvement have resulted in an ever-increasing market share and several record-breaking sales in McCormick Ranch & the greater Central Scottsdale submarket.
In the land market, areas of specialization include Central Scottsdale, PV, and Arcadia buyer site selection and seller representation, teardown/infill redevelopment opportunities, and County-wide raw land & subdivisions.
By thoroughly understanding the land market, the insight Gene brings to his residential clients is indispensable and cannot be replicated by the average real estate professional.
Gene has reached Arizona Top 10, US Top 100, and Hall Of Fame and Lifetime Achievement Awards at his two previous companies. Launch Real Estate appealed to Gene for its stock of high-producing agents, united branding, and marketplace perception. He currently ranks in the Top 1% of all real estate agents in Maricopa County with Launch Powered By Compass.
Armed with an obsession for thoughtful marketing and a desire to make every transaction a positive experience, Gene brings an experienced, enthusiastic, educational approach to every deal.
Gibbstown, NJ will always be “home.” After attending West Virginia University, Gene relocated to Arizona and has been a Scottsdale resident ever since. He will always bleed WVU Old Gold & Blue, and will never hide his love for Philly sports, culture, and food. If you find him plugged in while cruising the Greenbelt, chances are its Phish or the Grateful Dead. Gene is a longtime resident of McCormick Ranch where he lives with his wife Amanda, an accomplished Interior Designer, and their sons Marco and Luca, who enjoy tennis and baseball, playing piano and saxophone, and horseplay.
