Shirley Thompson started her career in real estate in 1992 as a fourth generation Realtor. Fortunate to work for a company that trained and motivated their team, she was able to achieve her real estate goals early in her career. During this time she sold many new homes and found that she loved the idea of helping to shape entire neighborhoods by the homes that were built.
Shirley decided that working for a National Homebuilder was the next logical step in her career. From 1997 to 2010 she worked for Beazer Homes. During this time she sold hundreds of homes across the Phoenix Metro Area. In 2005, Shirley was given the opportunity to manage the sales team. Her success was measured on profit and sales for the company plus the ability to support and encourage her team. Knowing that a well trained, motivated team ultimately would increase sales; this was her focus.
One of her lifelong desires had always been to start a real estate company. Shirley was committed to growing a company that supported a sales team regardless of the market conditions. She visualized a company that had well trained agents, who knew the importance of working hard to get the job done. She wanted a company of like minded agents who put their clients first.
With her mother, Nancy Swain and her husband Jimmie Thompson, they combined their years of real estate experience and dedication to create Road To Home Realty. With Shirley as the Designated Broker, they have created a company of well trained, experienced agents that understand the importance of working hard to make their client’s dreams a reality.
