Second-generation Phoenician Erik Jensen has joined the sales team at The Caniglia Group, which specializes in central Phoenix, Scottsdale and Paradise Valley residential real estate.

A licensed agent since 2004, Jensen, 35, knows a lot about the North Central corridor. He is living in his childhood home with his fiancée and plans to renovate it beginning next year.

Jensen says he is excited to be selling in North Central not only because of his roots here, but also because word is spreading that the area is a great place to live and raise a family.

“People are excited to live on tree-lined streets with neighborhood restaurants,” he says. “There is a sense of community in North Central that you do not find in other parts of the Valley.”

Jensen adds that the fall/winter season is a great time to think about buying, especially in North Central. “The area has already seen several new shops and restaurants open and that is just the tip of the iceberg. Interest rates are still very low and, with the summer heat over, more sellers will put their homes on the market. In addition, older dilapidated homes in the area are being razed and making way for new homes.”
