Barbara Habbeshaw

Owner and Designated Broker of AZ Residential Management

With over 15 years’ experience, Barbara is the pinnacle of property management perfection. Property management is more than just a “job” for Barbara---in fact, one of her requirements for employees are that they “must love this line of work” in order for them to qualify to be in the AZ Residential Management team. She is highly devoted to her owners and their investments by maintaining respectful relationships with tenants. She is skilled in every aspect of meticulous organization, she is detail-oriented, and she is always accessible for communication. She strives day and night, every day of the week---including weekends, to ensure that the high standards and amazing services she expects are extended to anyone who joins the AZ Residential Management family.

Her passion for property management is further exemplified by the most current achievement of the company’s Honor Roll Award from the Arizona Department of Real Estate, signifying Barbara’s devotion to providing owners and renters the most honest and trustworthy property management experience possible.

Barbara says, “by putting our owners first, we view property management as a partnership rather than just a professional relationship---and this is our defining quality. We work together to achieve the highest and best returns for each of our owners.”
