Realtor Buys Back Offices After Four Years



Cliff Potts

After selling Rim Country’s Prudential offices in 2006, broker Cliff Potts has purchased the offices back.

In early September, Potts took over ownership of two Prudential Arizona Properties offices.

Potts explained new owners took over the Phoenix and Rim Country branches months back and decided they no longer wanted to manage the Payson offices.

“It was a strategic move on their part,” he said. “They wanted to focus on the Phoenix/ Metro area and we are 90 miles away from their headquarters, so it seemed to make sense to them that they would sell it back to me.”

Potts has been a designated broker with Prudential Arizona Realty since 1993 and a realtor in Payson since 1981. He has won numerous professional and community awards including being named Payson Roundup’s Man of the Year in 2007.

Prudential Arizona Realty has two offices covering Payson, Pine and Strawberry in Northern Gila County, as well as the Happy Jack and Forest Lakes Area in Coconino County.

The company has more than 20 realtors who are longtime residents and well experienced in Rim Country real estate to assist in all aspects of the real estate business, Potts said.

“Prudential Arizona Realty is an excellent company that operates on a foundation of integrity and the core values of honesty, ethics and putting the client first, and will continue to build on the Prudential brand that has served the Rim Country so well for 17 years,” Potts said.

“We are very fortunate to have dedicated and productive associates that provide their real estate knowledge and respected reputation in the community. Combined with our technology, marketing and training expertise, we are in a prime position to grow our Rim Country presence by providing the highest level of service to our clients.”

Prudential Arizona Realty’s Rim Country presence succeeds Prudential Arizona Properties.

“I am glad to have had the opportunity to purchase the Payson and Pine offices to establish a locally owned presence in the Rim Country. At the same time, we are able to have the support of the metro Phoenix offices of Prudential Arizona Properties,” Potts said.

Prudential Arizona Properties remains the largest Prudential affiliate in Arizona.

Prudential Arizona Realty is a full service brokerage company offering residential, commercial relocation and builder services.
