About Rich Baxter

Rich Baxter has been in Scottsdale since 1974 and is a third-generation Realtor. He received his Bachelor of Science degree summa cum laude from Arizona State University and his Master of Arts degree from the University of Arizona. He learned the fundamentals of the real estate business around the dinner table , with both parents selling real estate since the 1970’s. After opening and managing several Hilton Hampton Inn and Residence Inn by Marriott hotels in the 1980s, Rich joined Realty Executives in 1990 and began selling real estate in Scottsdale and neighboring communities.

With nearly three decades of success in the business, Rich can offer useful insight into every aspect of home sales. Rich sold Barry Goldwater’s estate, and was selected by Don Hovde–the former president of the National Association of Realtors–to successfully market his Scottsdale home. Rich regularly receives awards from Realty Executives based on sales production and has been recognized by IMS (an independent organization) as one of the top 3% of real estate professionals in the valley of the Sun. Rich specializes in Scottsdale and the neighboring communities of Paradise Valley, Arcadia, Biltmore, Fountain Hills, Cave Creek, and Carefree, Arizona.

Meet Julie Baxter
Julie is an Arizona native having been born in Phoenix and raised in Paradise Valley. After graduating from the University of Arizona, Julie began selling valley real estate in what were the tough times of the mid-1980s. "I feel like my career really benefited from starting off selling in a 14% interest rate environment. Having cut my teeth in those days, I really feel like there isn’t anything I can’t handle."

Rich’s Lucky Day
In early 1998, Rich bumped into an old friend from Scottsdale Saguaro High School. Standing in an AJ’s checkout line was Julie Gordon with her father, who lived but two doors down from Rich. The following week, Rich & Julie were dating and two years later, they were married. Rich & Julie now work closely together in the sales effort.

Rich & Julie reside with their two rescue Maltese dogs, Lulu and Lola. In their spare time, Rich & Julie enjoy bike riding, dining, and spending time with nearby family and friends. Its easy to do, as Rich & Julie’s mothers both live in the same neighborhood and often join the Baxters for evening dog walks.
