Kari Hughes


I truly love Arizona! It’s my home as a 3rd generation Arizona
native. I look forward to exploring with you this place to call
home in a way that connects specifically to your needs.

Scottsdale, Gilbert, Ahwatukee and the Greater Phoenix area
are just a few of the absolute best places to live, for so many
reasons; hiking, golf, and live entertainment. The beautiful
lakes and a quick drive to Prescott or Payson bring that small
hometown feel and cooler weather.

I am a certified Senior Real Estate Specialist-SRES. I had such
a wonderful experience with my Grandmother Leona and
Grandpa John on the farm canning, camping and creating
memories I cherish. I am forever grateful. Now, I am honored
to serve seniors and their adult children by listening intently,
caring deeply, and guiding everyone step by step in this new
season of life. I make the transition experience remarkable and

For 18years I truly enjoyed working in a non-profit
organization. Since 2011 a Real Estate Professional helping
families with all their real estate needs! I am happiest spending
time with my grandchildren Kylie and Jaxon, fun get-a-ways,
camping and off-roading earning badges to decorate my Jeep
and walks with my two dogs…Hudson and Teddy.

With relevancy and trustworthiness, I provide a great
experience. You, too, will truly come to love Arizona!

Sierra Blemaster


A childhood spent around spec homes in the valley’s luxury golf course communities and later flipping homes across Scottsdale, Chandler and Phoenix, Sierra became very comfortable with several different avenues of real estate. Real Estate investing and homebuilding go back four generations in her family, so it’s not surprising that she decided to build her career around helping investors and families buy and sell homes.

“I love watching the transformation of a house into a home and the excitement of each party involved. Whether it be a multi-million dollar third home, or a family buying their first home. Every detail, every deal is important”.

Sierra studied neuroscience at Baylor University and Psychological Sciences at the University of Arizona before returning to Scottsdale where she obtained her license and started on her career in real estate.

Prior to college, Sierra graduated from the internationally prestigious Culver Academies, where she had been the captain of their regarded varsity Sailing team. Sierra’s coach, who trains olympic sailors and yacht club teams when he’s not coaching at the Culver, hand picked Sierra to head up the Capri ‘22 fleet at the Academies’ summer program, which she did for two seasons.

The skills for sailing and real estate actually have a lot in common. Any sailor will tell you that sailing is very captivating; In racing you must always be observing, proactive to changing conditions and ready to adapt to sudden shifts. The same is true of real estate.

You’ll immediately recognize her calm, thoughtful, and strategic demeanor, that will allow you to rest easy knowing Sierra has all the details covered. Whether it’s your first home, or your 50th investment project, Sierra will work to make your entire transaction smooth sailing.
