Voit is pleased to announce the addition of Jenette Bennett and Jason Jones, both specializing in retail and focused on the West Valley, who have joined the firm as vice presidents.

“As Voit continues to expand the Phoenix team, we are committed to hiring top tier brokers who will provide the opportunity to create additional solutions for our clients,” according to Tom Johnston, Managing Director for Voit’s Phoenix and Las Vegas offices. “Jenette and Jason make great additions to our team and we’re excited to have them on-board.”

Prior to joining Voit, Bennett served as a commercial real estate investment agent for Don Bennett and Associates and Phoenix West Commercial in the West Valley of Arizona. As a leasing agent and investment analyst, Bennett coordinated all aspects of real estate transactions, from property research and site selection to forecasting internal rates of return on income-producing assets for her clients. In 2005, Bennett was awarded Team Member Rookie of the Year.

“We are thrilled to bring our West Valley Retail team to Voit Real Estate Services, and appreciate the opportunity to be part of an organization with such a history of transaction expertise, extensive broker support and marketing capabilities,” commented to the two new brokers.

Parsons Acquires Scottsdale-based Martz Agency

Valley entrepreneur and philanthropist Bob Parsons today announced the acquisition of Martz Agency by MP Agency, L.L.C., an organization owned by Parsons. The award-winning Scottsdale based marketing and public relations firm, which will be renamed Martz Parsons, will bring creative firepower to Parsons’ growing portfolio of businesses.

Parsons has said that by looking at and structuring their marketing as a revenue generator that makes money rather than an expense item, businesses are able to not only bring attention to their brand but also increase their revenue streams. Parsons’ numerous Valley based entities, including Harley-Davidson of Scottsdale, Go AZ Motorcycles, Spooky Fast Parts & Engineering, YAM Properties, The Bob & Renee Parsons Foundation and Scottsdale National Golf Club, will be using Martz Parsons as their agency of record. The agency will immediately add talent to keep pace with the growth.

Martz Agency, founded by Carrie Martz in 1980, is among the most highly regarded agencies in Arizona. Moving forward, Carrie Martz will assume the title of CEO and the agency will continue to serve its existing clients. Existing and future accounts, including Parsons personal enterprises, will be able to leverage the Agency’s unparalleled talent and newly expanded resources to further develop and empower their brands.

“I am thrilled that someone I consider to be a marketing genius has purchased the Agency,” said Carrie Martz.  “This is a once in a lifetime opportunity for our agency and for our clients. With Bob Parsons behind us, I believe our Agency will become even more value to the clients we serve.”

Bob Parsons, like Carrie Martz, is well-known for his intense focus on providing an excellent customer experience. Moving forward, clients can expect their accounts to be managed with the same level of personalized care that Martz Agency has delivered for the last 33 years.

“It’s no secret that I am passionate about marketing,” said Bob Parsons. “The formula is simple … great brands that deliver an uncontested customer experience thrive. Martz Agency brings years of experience, professionalism and enthusiasm to the table. Together, we should knock it out of the park.”

Martz Agency’s current client roster includes Yurbuds, Arizona Commerce Authority, Toronto based Pacific Links International, Valley of the Sun YMCA, Fennemore Craig, RLC Labs, One Neck, Mirabel, The Reef Residences at Atlantis, Estrella by Newland Communities, and Olympia Group.
