Eric Semke, Architect/New Home Specialist

Eric Semke has over 25 years of experience in home design. What makes his experience more unique is that he had built several custom homes during the first 11 years in business. Most of them were luxury homes, complex in design. The advantage is that he is able to design your home from the perspective of real and practical experience, avoiding costly mistakes that can happen during construction due to a flawed design.  [More Information]

“Trusted for Service, Respected for Results, Leland Moreno-Hilburn is an accomplished Real estate professional. who takes a personal interest in every client and goes far beyond the “industry standard” to deliver the very best possible service result for you”.

I do not believe in cookie-cutter, “one size fits all” real estate solutions.  Instead, I take the time to get to know each individual client, learn their tastes and preferences, and listen when they tell me what they want me to do for them. Whether you’re buying or selling a home, I’ll tailor my approach to best meet your situation.  I constantly study the market and research with the latest trends as well as the tried and true, and then carefully analyze patterns to see which techniques produce the best results.  In addition, I look at which approaches appear to be getting more effective over time and which less so.  Because each area is a little different, I pay close attention to what works in the individual markets I serve. By continually refining my methods to adapt to the changing market, I ensure that I’m providing my clients with the most effective service and the best possible results.

My passion in real estate is building relationships with my clients, I know those relationships are the key to my clients’ success and satisfaction. buying or selling property can be an intimidating and stressful process.  A trustworthy realty professional who considers your input and keeps you advised every step of the way will remove much of the stress. I know that the successful achievement of your real estate objectives will be equally dependent upon your input and my experience.  Rest assured, I do not believe in the all too common practice of agents, making decisions for clients without considering the clients’ wishes. You have my guarantee that I will discuss every option with you and, together, we will make the right decisions. Guiding you through that entire buying or selling process is a responsibility I take very seriously. I will always be available when you need me.

A resident of Prescott Arizona, Leland is passionate about making a difference for the people of the community and provides clients dedicated exceptional and individualized services. In partnership with his wife Rosa, Leland also performs the operations management and logistical planning for Virgo Organize Interiors, full service home staging, interior design and organizing.
