I believe that in the end, it’s all about the people we surround ourselves with. While our team may seem small, these are some of the best people in the business you’ll ever meet. They are not only experts at what they do, but are genuinely a great bunch, and I am proud to call them my team members and my friends.
Bob Hertzog-Owner/Designated Broker-Listing Specialist
In light of the recent downturn in the land market, I created Summit Home Consultants in 2007. Since that time, I’ve been involved in closing countless “traditional” and short sale transactions. My main focus is that of a listing agent, helping our clients through this very challenging real estate market that we are faced with today.
In recent months, several media outlets have turned to us for insight on the current real estate market, particularly short sales.
I am a native of Phoenix, specifically North Phoenix and Scottsdale. graduating from Sunnyslope High School in 1987, and Arizona State University with a B.S. in Business Management in 1991.
As a third-generation Real Estate Broker, I’ve witnessed the ups and downs of the market during my lifetime, and have very close relationships with some of the top Real Estate Attorneys, Mortgage Brokers, and Title Companies in the Valley.
I’ve been married to my awesome wife of 19 years, Kim. We have two children; Kaitlyn is 17 and attends Chaparral High School. Hailey is 9 and attends Cherokee Elementary.
I enjoy spending time with my beautiful family, playing golf, camping, blogging, and helping our team of experts to be the best they can be.

Mark Rayment-Buyer Specialist
Dragan initially discovered his passion for real estate six years ago while working as a landscape designer for Poco Verde Landscape. For more than three years he assisted homeowners transform their house into a home by creating designs that fit not only the home, but the homeowners as well. The ability to work with diverse clients and an aptitude to meet their needs eventually landed Dragan the position as the sole landscape designer for D.R Horton. When new home builds were decreasing due to economic pressure, Dragan decided to transition into real estate, already having experience with homebuyers. The change has been a rewarding one, and Dragan enjoys the challenge, and fulfillment of matching each of his clients with their perfect house, and helping once again make a house into a home.
