We Know Real Estate,

So Get to Know Us


Arrowpoint Realty, Inc was established in 1985, in Phoenix, Arizona by W. Michael Novotny,  to market a subdivision in the new master-planned community of Arrowhead Ranch, in Glendale, Arizona.

After six months, Michael bought out his original partner and moved the company to Scottsdale, adding a focus on residential leasing and property management services, along with real estate re-sales.

In 2002 Arrowpoint relocated to McCormick Ranch where we would stay until our most recent move in August  2017, to  new offices at the Scottsdale Air Park at 7900 E Greenway Rd, Suite 209 Scottsdale, AZ 85260, just east of the Scottsdale Quarter and Kierland Shopping areas.

Marie Roberts

Associate Broker, MCNE

I am a Real Estate Broker, high performing, results oriented, with more than 20 years of experience in the Valley and the Prescott area. 

I am an expert dedicated to giving clients "First Class" professional service and honest advice, enabling them to make sound financial decisions in the sale and purchase of Real Estate.


For years, the model of a real estate brokerage was the agent and the employing brokerage working on some type of commission split formula. It was here in Phoenix, Arizona in 1965 that Realty Executives is credited with first pioneering the 100% commission concept where the agent would pay a monthly fee, and in turn, keep 100% of any commissions earned. However, the obligation of a substantial monthly fee discouraged many agents, so enter the hybrid firms with a low monthly fee and something less than 100% commission split.

We want to develop a new model, one where we can merge our three decades of property management experience with the 100% and near-100% sales commission concept.  We are not just looking for new agents to join, we are looking for agents who are interested in actually helping develop this concept.  Let's put our heads together!
