Warm Weather Real Estate is a full service Mesa, AZ real estate agency, specializing in residential real estate. Founded in 2012, by Bob Marsh, a licensed Arizona real estate broker. At present, Warm Weather Real Estate is a one-man operation.

Marsh pondered a few days about renaming his company, which was formerly named Bob Marsh Real Estate. He wanted to make the company marketable and transferrable as an entity. He read that naming your real estate company with a name other than John Doe Realty. So, in matching the company name to the area served, he chose Warm Weather Real Estate.

About Bob Marsh, Broker, 40 years' experience

Bob Marsh began his real estate career in 1977, in Hutchinson, Kansas. After graduating from the University of Kansas, with a degree in Business Administration, Marsh began working in the grain business, as a merchandising clerk for Bartlett Grain, Kansas City, Missouri. After two years there, his family beckoned him back closer to central Kansas. At the time, the only sure job he could find was working for grocery giant Dillon Foods, currently owned by Kroger, which also owns Fry’s Foods. That job lasted a year – too much friction and competition among the workers.

Bob took a job as a framing carpenter for Custom Homes, a division of Astle Realty, owned by Joe and Marj Astle and later their daughter Judy McCool, now in Hutchinson. As he worked the home building job, he studied for his real estate license. In July, 1977, he became a full time licensed real estate salesman with Astle Realty. In 1980, he became a licensed associate broker with Astle. Bob enjoyed his relationship with the Astle family.

Moving on…onward and upward

In 1982, he became an associate broker with John Oswald Real Estate, operating out of 1128 N. Main, Hutchinson, Kansas. John Oswald specialized in commercial, land and farm real estate. Bob learned valuable experience in all these specialties from Oswald. Bob appreciated his time with John Oswald.

In 1988, Bob opened Bob Marsh Real Estate at 217 W 5th, Hutchinson, Kansas – a building that is no longer there – across south from the 5th and Adams Dillons Food Store.. While on his own, he learned the value of advertising daily in the local Hutchinson News, which no other real estate company in Hutchinson did at that time.

All America Real Estate

In 1991, he moved that office to 111 E 30th, where he and his wife Norma, then a real estate broker also, opened All America Real Estate, which later became the very first RE/MAX office in Hutchinson. They operated this office until selling the building in 1997, to Jim Davis, who now operates from this location as Realty Executives 4 Results

Marsh enjoyed his Hutchinson real estate career. During his time there he was able to grow his real estate business, and personally invest in real estate. Before ending his time there, he acquired 14 rental units – five single family homes, a duplex, a triplex and a four-plex.

Move to Arizona

In 1998, Bob and Norma loaded up a five foot by eight foot trailer and headed west – destination unknown. First stop was Taos, New Mexico, where they had come over the last mountain following a snow plow, October 29, 1998. After visiting friends there, they hit the road again looking for much warmer weather.

Next stop was Santa Fe, October 30, which they determined was too crowded and a little more sophisticated than what they wanted. From there they went to Albuquerque, New Mexico, which turned out to be windier than Kansas – not what they wanted. Then, on to Flagstaff, October 31, where they couldn’t sleep because of the trains blaring down the track all night.

Next stop, Prescott, where Bob had relatives. Again, too cold. After breakfast, November 1, they headed south on Interstate 17. When they came in to the Phoenix Metro area, they actually drove all the way through Phoenix, and realized they were nearly headed for Tucson, when the decided to turn off on Riggs Road.

The Valley of the Sun!

Friends staying the winter at a mobile home park in Apache Junction urged them to visit. So they found the Motel 6 on Idaho Road, and there they spent the night. Next morning, November 2, 1998, they got up and went to the pool for a swim! Wow! It was warm enough to swim in November.

Going back to their room, they picked up the Phoenix Sun Newspaper. In it they found an ad seeking a couple to assist managing an apartment complex in Scottsdale, Arizona. They were hired for the job, which lasted about two months. The job gave them spare time to do odd jobs for different real estate offices in the Scottsdale area.

December 26, 1998, one of those Scottsdale real estate brokers called and asked them if they would be interested in managing a 54 unit apartment complex in Tempe, for a salary and an apartment. There Bob and Norma lived for 6 years. Then the complex was sold to another owner.

Arizona Real Estate Broker

Bob then applied for his real estate broker license. The state gave him credit for the years of property management experience. He then worked for J. Roberts & Co., Zip Realty, S.J. Fowler Real Estate, and Solutions Real Estate, before opening Bob Marsh Real Estate.

In 2014, Bob changed the name of Bob Marsh Real Estate to Warm Weather Real Estate, and here we are – right back where we started.
