Guest Interview:

Michelle Goode
Owner/Agent @Northern Nevada Real Estate Group – eXp Realty
I am passionate about helping clients reach their real estate goals. I have lived in Reno for over 28 years; it is a spectacular place to live. I am so thrilled to be a part of this growing community. Helping families and businesses find their perfect property.

David Stafford
Broker/Owner @360 Ventures Real Estate
I have been the president and qualifying broker of my own real estate company for over 16 years. Before that I spent 6 years in the US Navy, and 7 years as staff at Sandia National Laboratories. I hold a master’s degree in business (MBA) from the University of New Mexico and I have vast business experience, including very strong negotiation and risk management skills based on my experience writing multi-million dollar contracts on behalf of the US Dept of Energy. I grew up here in Albuquerque and I actively invest in real estate here (I buy/hold many rentals and I buy/remod/sell about 8-12 houses/flips per year)

Eddy Ortiz
Real Estate Agent @Summit Sotheby’s International Realty
With two decades of executive level business experience and almost $30m in real estate sold over the last 2+ years, I have been able to add value and ease to the complex process of real estate purchases. No matter the price point, be it land at under $50k or a home into the millions, my clients will get the same level of experience each time. Although I was born and raised in the Caribbean, my family settled in the Northeast. After graduating from college in upstate New York, my wife and I lived all over the country. However, once we came to Utah, we found that there was no place like it. After living 14 years in this state (over 6 of them in Southern Utah), we found that there is no other place like it with its breathtaking landscapes, abundance of outdoor adventures, and an incredible sense of community. Now we are happy to pass on our amazing adventures, which makes this place magical, to our daughter and twin boys.
