Steve graduated from New Mexico State University with a bachelor's degree in Mechanical Engineering. After working for Shell Oil Company and the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, he decided he wanted to take on the challenge of building a company from scratch. He began by building his own portfolio of residential rental properties. As he built his rental portfolio, he also wanted to create a property management company that would maximize the interests of the property owner. This is how Blue Fox Properties was born. From the onset, Steve has been dedicated to learning from property managers around the city, state and country.
So upon founding Blue Fox, he immediately discovered the National Association of Residential Property Managers (NARPM®). Through NARPM®, he has captured best practices and applied them to Blue Fox to protect and promote the interests of the clients his company serves. Steve is 1 of only 4 people in Tucson who holds the Residential Management Professional (RMP®) designation from NARPM® and one of only two people in Southern Arizona to hold the Master Property Manager (MPM®) designation, the highest designation from NARPM®. In addition, he has been selected by his peers to serve as the 2017 National President of NARPM®. He is 1 of only 3 Arizona Department of Real Estate certified instructors from Tucson that teaches property management continuing education courses. He is a national speaker, instructor and author.
