CMA Realty Property Management & Sales was established upon a strong foundation and has a rich history. Known as one of the largest property management companies in the Quad-City area, CMA Realty offers services of property management and sales.
Original founders, Craig and Eva Marshall, met and married in Germany while Craig was serving in the military. Craig, being a U.S. native, embarked on a journey back to the States with his new bride and received his education state-side. He was employed with Motorola for over 25 years in Scottsdale and eventually relocated to the Prescott Valley area while pursuing a new career in real estate. Craig worked for various brokers throughout Yavapai county prior to opening his own brokerage, C Marshall & Associates Realty in 1994. He proceeded to add the property management side of the business in 1995. C Marshall & Associates Realty, aka CMA Realty, was Craig and Eva’s pride and joy through 2008.
Craig and Eva would eventually sell their business to Loni and John Lenahan. Prior to their ownership of C Marshall & Associates, Loni was busy working her way up the ladder in the insurance industry while John was hard at work as a roofer and owner of multiple bicycle shops in sunny California. The couple eventually relocated to the Prescott Valley area where they established family roots. John started working for Crystal Water and eventually made a career switch to the Yavapai County Sheriff’s Department where he served for 10 years. During that time, Loni was a bookkeeper for a local contractor who shared office space with Craig and that’s how they came to meet. Loni later made a career change when she went to work for the Newspaper specializing in advertisement sales for 6 years. She later received an offer from Craig inviting her to work for him directly in 2004. Loni dived into the real estate business and everything she put her hand to prospered. Craig saw the amazing work ethic and drive Loni had to grow the business even further. In 2008, Loni and John purchased the business and became the wonderful new owners of C Marshall & Associates through January of 2020. Loni and John are currently happily retired and setting out on their new chapter in life.
Today, Wade and Lisa Crandell are the proud new owners of what is now known as CMA Realty. The couple met in Prescott in 1994, married in 1996, and built a wonderful life & family together in and around the surrounding areas. Their decision to purchase the company from Loni & John in 2020 has been a dream come true and another part of their story in the making. Wade is a licensed Realtor and Associate Broker for 21+ years and is passionate about all aspects of real estate and being an asset to the community with his knowledge and experience in the ever-so-growing industry. Prior to real estate he worked at FedEX for 14 years with the last 8 of them in management. Wade eventually transitioned his career to real estate and worked at C Marshall & Associates from 2000-2003. He then opened RE/MAX Promised Land Realty in 2003 selling the brokerage in 2006. Lisa is instrumental in many aspects of the business with her undeniable ability to visualize & execute projects. Wade and Lisa are truly an amazing team and their wonderful reputation is greatly appreciated among many.
