About Us


We are Laurie & Greg Hill, Broker/Owners of Desert Gem Real Estate, specializing in Arizona residential real estate, including Adult Communities.  We have been providing our clients with expert services, since 1994.

Our background --- We had been to Arizona many times on vacation and lived in the East Valley, from 1986 – 1990, until Greg’s job took us back to WA State.  In 1994 Laurie started in Real Estate and in 1997 opened  Progressive NW Real Estate in Washington State and at that time Greg got his Real Estate License and we started working together. We also did volunteer work for the Salvation Army.

In 2002 we decided we really missed sunny Arizona.  In 2002 we sold  our Brokerage and made the move back  to Arizona, where our heart was. In December of 2002 we opened our brokerage – Desert Gem Real Estate in Surprise, AZ and have been listing and selling residential real estate ever since.  We live and work in Surprise, located in the NW Phoenix Valley and just love it here.  Best move we ever made!!!


Laurie is the licensed Broker and Greg is a licensed Realtor. We specialize in representing our clients in the purchase and sale of residential properties, in both the Adult Communities and Family neighborhoods.  We cover the entire NW Phoenix Valley.

We truly love this area and pride ourselves on our knowledge of school districts, neighborhood information, and related services, including mortgage, insurance and inspection information.

We love working with first time buyers or sellers, as well as those that have sold and bought real estate for many years.  We always strive to help them reach their goal.

We are dedicated to achieving results and providing exceptional service. If you are in the market to buy or sell a home, we will put our many years of real estate expertise to work for you!
