While they are very familiar with Desert Ridge and consider themselves Desert Ridge real estate specialists, they are agents who have worked throughout the Valley. Previous corporate experience has positioned them well for Real Estate. Doug managed Courtyard by Marriott Hotels in the Midwest after graduating from Purdue. After relocating to Arizona he worked for World Travel Inns as Area Manager, then for The Vanguard Group as a financial advisor . Kathy graduated from NIU and her background includes food service, sales and marketing and revenue management with Marriott.
As in their previous careers their goal is to deliver exceptional customer service. The Ingersolls complete ALL the work themselves to ensure all transactions are performed thoroughly, accurately and on time, from listing a home through close of escrow. They have been practicing Real Estate since 2000 and with Realty Executives (an international company) since 2009. Adhering to a motto of "We're not trying to be number one - we want to be the BEST" they focus on personal touch. As a team they have sold more than $73 million dollars of Real Estate! In addition, Doug served as the first resident President of the Aviano HOA and served on the Board for four years working to ensure a stable family and home value environment with a strong management structure in place.
"We chose to live and work in the Desert Ridge area because of the community". They live with their two children who both attend local, top-rated public schools. During the course of their Real Estate activities they have seen many different master planned communities and none have the amenities, reasonable cost structure and convenient location as that of Desert Ridge.
