Stefanie Swartz comes from three generations of Arizonans and was born in Jacksonville, North Carolina, where her parents were both stationed as United States Marines. Shortly after, she was brought back to Phoenix where she was raised and has lived for the majority of her life. Stefanie has spent time in virtually every corner of the valley through the years but now calls the Scottsdale/North Phoenix area home. She began her finance career with Charles Schwab, where she was able to further develop her problem-solving and communication skills. Her career with finance ended at American Express after she and Bryce chose to pursue their dream career in real estate. Stefanie is an avid reader (any suggestions?), loves trying new foods and drinks, and has a deep compassion for animals.
