Pellegrini & DeGeorge

The Question: When does No. 1 plus No. 1 still equal No. 1?

The Answer: When two No. 1 real estate agents team up to create a powerhouse partnership — which is just what Susan Pellegrini and Karen DeGeorge have done.

The Scoop: DeGeorge has been a licensed agent with Coldwell Banker for 16 years and has been consistently ranked as No. 1 in Coldwell Banker’s Fountain Hills office. Pellegrini, who has been licensed for 33 years, has been with the Fountain Hills office of Russ Lyon Sotheby’s International Realty (RLSIR) since 2009, and has been ranked as the No. 1 agent in Fountain Hills in 2015, 2016 and 2017. She also ranked in the top one percent of agents at RLSIR (which has 900+ agents) in both 2015 and 2016. Prior to joining RLSIR, Pellegrini was the designated broker with Windermere Real Estate in Fountain Hills, which later changed affiliations to become a GMAC franchise. These two top-notch real estate pros have long wanted to work together, with DeGeorge recently leaving Coldwell Banker to join Pellegrini at RLSIR. Joining them as a business partner is Pellegrini’s son, Tony Pellegrini, who has been a licensed agent for approximately ten years. The team will be marketing as 85268.com, which is also their website.

Quote from Susan Pellegrini: “Karen and I have wanted to work together for years. It all has finally worked out and we look forward to providing our clients with the first-class service they’ve always received from each of us individually. As a very tight professional team with a wealth of relevant experience, our collective ability to find, market and sell properties has been exponentially enhanced.”

Quote from Karen DeGeorge: “I have always admired and respected Susan for her work ethic. We finally put our desires of forming a team and working together into action by joining forces and becoming The Pellegrini & DeGeorge Group. It’s exciting to work with the best partner in the business as well as the world’s top agency because we have access to an abundance of services and information.”
