Cody Anne Buchser & Michael Yarnes
The Cody Anne Team | Realty Executives Northern Arizona | Prescott
When Cody Anne and Michael Yarnes were looking for their first house, they called nearly 30 real estate agents. They got one call back. That was in 2006—a boom year, they now realize. But it made them think, “We could do this better.”
Cody Anne started first with “tons and tons” of open houses and regular farming of one subdivision. The results were promising, and Yarnes joined her in the business. Then in 2008, the market distress reached Prescott. “We sat down and said, ‘How are we going to do this?’” reports Cody Anne. They decided to stop spending money on everything else and ramp up their advertising—just when everyone else was cutting back. The decision paid off. Last year, they closed 76 transactions.
Self-diagnosed workaholics, the pair strive to stay on top of the industry. They enjoy exploring new technology, from YouTube videos to QR codes, and sharing that information with their clients. They have expanded their team to include a team leader and a buyer’s agent. And they’re looking for ways to improve their relationship management system so that it functions with minimal effort and without feeling like a system.
In a town like Prescott, the real estate market is more sheltered and the community is tighter than in the major metro areas. The active agents know each other and work together to get deals done. It is that small-town feeling that draws buyers to Prescott. “People love this town,” says Cody Anne. “It’s fun selling real estate here. Every day day we remind ourselves of why we love it so much.”
