Cerreta Realty Group was established in November 2008. This is a full service, woman owned, residential real estate brokerage firm that is owned and operated by the Cerreta Family. The owners include Marlene and Jonathan Cerreta, Aimee Cerreta Mitchell, Kristen Cerreta Serrano, and Mindy Cerreta Hawkins. The Cerreta Family began selling homes as “The Cerreta Team” under the brokerage firm High Profile Realty in 2001. As the business grew, the Cerreta’s decided to start a brokerage firm and have continued to grow every year. At the current time, Cerreta Realty Group is located at 17505 N 79th Avenue in Glendale, Arizona. The very first employee the Cerreta’s hired was Melissa Hubler and she is still with the brokerage today.
Cerreta Realty Group has ten full time office staff members and 18 full time agents. Cerreta’s specializes in REO and HUD residential properties and sells approximately 300-400 homes per year. In 2010, 440 homes were listed and 380 homes were sold. The business is expanding and has recently moved into a larger office to meet the demands of a larger staff.
Growing from a small family business to a large REO firm was accomplished with hard work, dedication to service, honesty and integrity. The Cerreta family is well known in and around the northwest valley in Arizona because of the Cerreta Candy Factory, a tour-able chocolate company owned and operated by James Cerreta, father-in-law to Marlene Cerreta and grandfather to Aimee, Kristen and Mindy. People identified with the family name and found the service to be impeccable, so a referral real estate business was launched. As the housing market changed, the Cerreta family educated themselves and began to solicit REO listings.
At this time Cerreta Realty Group services, markets and sells homes for HUD, Freddie Mac, M&I Bank, Single Source, First Preston and Equity Pointe and Fannie Mae. This business is also driven with hard work, dedication, honesty and integrity, which the Cerreta Group makes a priority.
