About Dru Bloomfield

My name is Dru Bloomfield and I’m a Scottsdale Realtor. With both a business and a technology background, plus a true enjoyment of working with people, I have the skills and the experience to make your home buying and selling experience successful and enjoyable.

I got my real estate license in 2003, after investing for several years.  It’s turned out to be a perfect match for me, an entrepreneur at heart.

Before real estate, I spent many years in corporate America, working primarily for AT&T creating new telecommunications-based products and services, and traveling extensively. Had a great time, enjoyed what I did, and gathered several degrees along the way, too.  The time came for me to get off the road, and be closer to home, which ultimately led to me to real estate.

I started my blog, At Home in Scottsdale, several years ago, partially because I like to write.  What I’ve discovered over time is that blogging has made me a much better Realtor.  It’s hard to write about something, if you don’t understand it.  The incorporation of social media has been a natural for me, and you can get to know more about Scottsdale real estate and a bit about me, if you’d like to connect on Twitter, Facebook or LinkedIn.  You ‘ll find my photographs from around town on Flickr, and I have a channel on YouTube.

When it comes to working with clients, I pride myself in being prepared. My clients benefit from my ability to combine a big-picture perspective with an attention to detail that is so critical in real estate transactions. At the same time, I think it’s important for my clients to enjoy the process of real estate. Buying or selling a house is a major decision for most people. I think we all make better choices when we are relaxed and prepared, so my goal is to provide current data, professional guidance, and a comfortable atmosphere to aid in the process.

I specialize in residential homes, mostly resale, but I do keep up on the new home developments in the city.  I also have experience in short sales and bank-owned homes. I primarily focus on the Scottsdale real estate market, but am familiar with and have done business with most of the surrounding cities.

Besides working, I have been an active volunteer in the community, serving on:

I feel involvement in my community and industry make me a better resource for you.

My family moved to Phoenix in 1969, and after high school, I left Arizona, heading to Oregon and Colorado, before returning almost 20 years ago.  As a Realtor, I regularly visit the many cities that make up greater Phoenix, and for me, Scottsdale is a great community to live and work in.  It’s where I chose to raise my family in.  The schools are some of the best. The city services are top-notch.  The parks and preserves are beautiful.  Downtown is fun.  I could go on, but take from me….

It’s a good life….. small-at-home

    Hi Dru,

    I am following you on twitter and thought I would check out your website.

    I really like your blog and the way it is set up to function as your web presence. Has it been effective for you?

    It’s funny, we share all the same real estate designations!

    Well, hope you are selling some homes there, let me know if you have anyone relocating to the North Metro Atlanta area. I would be happy to give you a referral fee.

    Catch you later,

    Lucia

    Hello,
    I am a follower of your blog. I saw this posting on yahoo news today, and I thought you would be interested.

    Greg,

    Thanks for the heads-up on this article. I saw the headline this morning, but did not read until you recommended. I think this is a pessimistic view. What’s your sense?

    Hello,
    Can you also post some data from the Cromford Report on Mesa and Chandler.
    Looks like you have to pay or be in the business to log into the system.
    Also,
    I have heard, right now, that banks are sitting on lots of homes. And waiting till the market heats up to release these homes. Is this true? Have you heard anything about this?
    thanks

    Greg, I will post some info on Mesa and Chandler shortly. As far as bank-owned homes goes, the banks seem to be releasing on a slower, steadier basis. Not so crazy, and not sure that it will be. Keeping supply low will help stabilize prices.

    I wanted to share this with you, in case you did not see it:

    http://finance.yahoo.com/news/

    “In Phoenix values have already collapsed by 54% and could fall another 23.4%.”

    Greg, Thanks for the head’s up. I did check this article out, but cannot figure out where they got their data from. I’ve seen it in print a couple of times, too. I could agree that this may be the case in the upper (over $400K price ranges), but I just don’t see how the under $250K price range can go any lower. When houses are selling for under $50/sf, it’s just crazy, because I don’t think you can rebuild for that price. My hope is that we start to seen some extended pricing sanity. You too?

    Hi Dru, I was surfing the net and came across your blog. I wanted to let you know, before it was made public that Starpointe (Phoenix’s largest condo builder) has hired our firm Intellimarket, to auction off 48 brand new condos at Artesia. If you aren’t familiar with the project, it’s located just north of Indian Bend Road on Scottsdale Blvd. The public announcement will be on Wednesday. I thought you might want to give your clients a head start. We will be paying a 3% coop fee for brokers. The building is open daily from 10am to 6pm with all homes available to be seen. Prices start at $165K.

    Our website will be up starting Wednesday at http://www.AuctionArtesia.com. We would love for you to come by with your clients! Thanks,

    Dan
