    About Justin
    Owner/Operator

    First of all, I’m a family man who loves spending time with my beautiful wife, Jennifer, our two daughters and most recently a son! We also have three dogs (Samson, Shelby & Patches). When not helping clients, I love to travel, play football, enjoy cooking and working on just about anything in the garage.

    I am raising a family of my own so often share in the same hard decisions you need to make and therefore can relate. We moved in 2014, selling our former home to then complete the purchase on our current, so I know all the emotions and logistics involved with making that type of transition happen.

    My goal is to become your REALTOR® & Real Estate Resource for life that you can refer to family, friends, co-workers and anyone else you know needing assistance. There are many REALTORS® to choose from, but we’re not all the same… let me show you why I am the right choice for you. Don’t take my word for it though, please read my past client reviews and see what they had to say. Regardless of price range, all of my clients receive the same customer service and I am never too busy for you or your referrals!

    I feel industry involvement and giving back is essential to a well-rounded career so I have held various voluntary leadership positions for the Arizona Association of Realtors® (AAR) and Western Maricopa Association of Realtors® (WeMAR) since 2010. I am currently the Treasurer for WeMAR and sit on the Board of Directors for AAR. These roles have given me an opportunity to see how Real Estate works on a broader level along with making some invaluable relationships, all of which can help me better help you in your transaction.

        Associate Broker, ABR, GRI, Notary

        Arizona Department of Real Estate Broker’s License # BR015521000 RE/MAX Hall of Fame Inductee

        I’ve always had a passion for anything automotive… cars, trucks & motorcycles! Prior to Real Estate, this is what I did. I would work on Corvettes, Panteras and other fast cars. I still have many projects to be finished, but enjoy riding one of my Harleys whenever possible. The other relaxation for me is spending time away from the valley heat in the mountains of Peeples Valley at our hillside retreat, overlooking the Rocky Boy mountains.

        I was born and raised in Phoenix so have seen first-hand all the growth over the past 60+ years. My business experience has grown alongside the valley and I put that knowledge to work for you in promoting your best interests throughout the transaction, whether buying or selling.

        OUR HISTORY

        The year was 1975 and Fred Schlegel just 22-years old. He had been working in the automotive field for quite a few years already when he bought his first home. That experience led him to believe he could provide better service to Buyers and Sellers within a Real Estate transaction. His agent had given him the wrong figure for his monthly payment and that’s a critical piece of information. It was then he knew that truly helping people and guiding them, solely with their best interests in mind, during what is normally the single largest transaction someone makes, was what he needed to do. Fred’s Uncle Carl had been successful in Real Estate over in California so that gave him some reassurances as well.

        A few years down the road, Fred was referred to a woman by the name of Wendi, whom needed to sell her home. Wendi became more than a client and that’s where Justin comes into play; in 1984, Justin was born.

        After a career-ending football injury, which derailed Justin’s collegiate career, Fred suggested he obtain his Real Estate license and they began working together. After all, Justin helped deliver neighborhood flyers from the time he was about 2-years old, frequented Fred’s office regularly and was an unlicensed assistant for a couple summers during high school so he already had a pretty good handle of what to expect.

        Justin obtained his Real Estate license in 2003, when only 19-years old, and then upgraded to a Broker’s license in 2007. Fred also has a Broker’s license. Together, they have helped thousands of families and individuals Buy, Sell & Invest in Real Estate throughout Arizona. Real Estate is their full-time career and something they’re passionate about… helping people through one of the most stressful life events is sincerely rewarding. Seeing the emotions on a first-time home buyer’s face or sensing the relief from a seller whom was in a distressed situation, after closing, is addicting to them.

        When not working with clients, Justin enjoys spending time with his wife, Jennifer, and their three children. He’s still playing football with longtime friends on a competitive adult team, loves to cook, entertain & travel. Fred still holds a passion for cars, trucks & motorcycles as well as visiting his mountainside retreat in Northern Arizona for some relaxation time.

        Both Fred & Justin are members of the RE/MAX Hall of Fame and Justin was recognized by the National Association of REALTORS’ Magazine’s prestigious “30 Under 30” Award for 2013. Justin has also been named to the Arizona Top 100 list for America’s Best Real Estate Agents several years running.

        You have a choice when it comes to whom you work with for your Real Estate needs, but you will not find anyone more committed to being Real, Honest and Professional in all aspects of their business. Team Schlegel strives to create a positive experience every single time, thus making clients feel like family and not just a transaction. They don’t want to be the only REALTORS® you know… but they do want to become the only REALTORS® you’d personally use and refer your family, friends & co-workers to.

        RE/MAX was originally founded in 1973 by Dave & Gail Liniger of Denver, Colorado. The Linigers were displeased with what the Residential Real Estate market had become so they decided to change that. Since then, RE/MAX, has grown into a worldwide brand that is known in more than 90 countries and includes over 100,000 agents. Yet, the original founders still help run the company today and world headquarters are based in Denver. RE/MAX is associated with its Red, White & Blue hot air balloon floating “Above the Crowd”.

        Originally known as RE/MAX Unlimited and located near 43rd Ave & Bell in Glendale, this RE/MAX franchise began its journey in the early 1990’s. That founding ownership remained through the first relocation just a mile to the West and a name change to RE/MAX Preferred Choice. In 2004, Richard Conrad, and his father, Dick, purchased the office and that’s when they met Fred & Justin Schlegel.

        After numerous conversations, the decision was made to create a partnership of four and relocate the office to the new development in Glendale’s Entertainment District, known as Westgate. The doors officially opened in Westgate, December of 2007. The real estate market was coming off a high, but the next couple years would prove difficult for most businesses within the industry. Many shut their doors not long after opening and dreams were lost.

        While challenges were inherent during that time, the office remained viable and due to a dedicated leadership team, is not thriving once again. Fred Schlegel had been the Designated Broker for a period of time and now Justin Schlegel holds that role, which he has since early 2013. Rich, today’s majority owner, and Justin work close together to ensure the REALTORS® of RMPC have the necessary tools and training to succeed, they are focused on providing customer service to each client and maintain balance in their personal & professional lives.

        Don’t take our word for it…

        Team Schlegel has been serving the community since 1975 and this is what some of our clients have to say.
