OURMission"TO PROVIDE THE BEST POSSIBLE EXPERIENCE FOR ALL THOSE WE TOUCH"
President and Designated Broker
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. Blue Fox Properties is one of less than 50 companies across the country that has earned the coveted Certified Residential Management Company (CRMC®) designation from NARPM®.
Steve is 1 of only 2 people in Southern Arizona to hold the Master Property Manager (MPM®) designation, the highest individual designation from NARPM®. (By the way, the other one is Sylvia, who is also on our team!) In addition, he was 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 residential property management continuing education courses. He is a national speaker, author and instructor.
Steve is one of the hardest working people we all know here at Blue Fox, aside from his obvious passion for the company and the tireless spreadsheets and memos, he truly cares for each and every employee. He values us, our time and our diligence. He celebrates the employees by recognizing our achievements and even our defeats. One of the most important tasks that he is passionate about are the weekly staff meetings that happen without fail, and will continue to happen until the end of time, or until his end of time, whichever comes first.

Dave previously worked with our colleague Debbie at her family's real estate company. During that time, he earned his broker’s license so he could own and operate his own real estate firm. Dave went on to do just that, but he later decided he enjoyed not being the boss more than he enjoyed being the boss. However, he kept in contact with Debbie throughout the years. As part of their ongoing conversations, Debbie told him about the growth Blue Fox was experiencing and she suggested that Dave may want to be a part of that success. After several meetings with Steve, Dave agreed that Blue Fox was the right opportunity for him and he joined our team.
On his downtime, Dave loves spending time with his two daughters, watching sprint car races and playing racquet ball.
On Alicia’s time off, she volunteers at fundraising events such as collecting toys for children during the holidays, autism events, and events for military veterans.

She enjoys spending time with her boyfriend and his Harley, two boys, service animal Mia, four bearded dragons and three leopard geckos.
On her downtime, Leeann enjoys spending time with her family and two dogs. Leeann also enjoys Zumba and reading. She is working on self-growth, improving her property management skills and she is close to earning her CRPM® (Certified Residential Property Manager) Certification. She aspires to earn her Broker’s license in the near future.
Amanda grew up in the Air Force, and enjoyed the experience of living in many different places, meeting so many new people and learning to become adaptable. Tucson has always been home base, so after spending several years in Denver, Colorado, Amanda decided to return home to the Old Pueblo to raise her two sons. Amanda loves to be involved in the community and is passionate about volunteering for the Ronald McDonald House. When she’s not working, she enjoys spending time outdoors, playing volleyball, trying out all of the amazing restaurants and shops that Tucson has to offer, and exercising. But most importantly of all, she enjoys creating new memories with her two boys.
Asking about her past, Michelle told us a few interesting facts about her life. One of her favorite travel experiences was back in high school when she, and a few other students, went on a trip to Europe with their French class. She loved it! They visited France, Italy and Spain for 2 weeks. Italy was her favorite. She hopes to go back one day.
Michelle also has an associates degree in criminal justice. She grew up watching CSI and wanted to become a criminal investigator but found a different passion with immigration. She says one day she wants to help people become legal citizens in the U.S. She is one of the sweetest employees we have. She may be quiet, but don’t let her surprise you with all she can do!
Sarah Martinez assists the business development manager with anything and everything. Sarah most notably does the marketing of the properties for the new clients that Sylvia brings onboard. Before marketing though, she will sometimes retrieve the keys from the owner, secure the property with a codebox, and evaluate the property to make sure it's in tip top shape before the pictures are taken. Once the home is ready, she will photograph the home, inside and out. She also provides a very thorough walk through video for each new property. Aside from marketing properties, she has recently taken on the challenge of creating marketing material to promote Blue Fox and all the great services we offer.
