Our Dedicated professional Team

Philip Henn

Licensed Associate Real Estate Broker

Philip Henn has been a top-producing broker for over 20 years and is firmly planted in the Scottsdale, Cave Creek & Carefree areas working with the Fulton-Rizzo Team at Hunt Distinctive Properties ERA. Philip represents buyers and sellers alike and he has considerable experience selling new developments, along with helping domestic and foreign real estate investors achieve their unique goals. Our office is located at Rancho Manana in Cave Creek. We service all of our clients valley wide yet focus on Carefree, Cave Creek and North Scottsdale. We know the broader picture of these areas and also the desired neighborhoods including Rancho Manana, The Boulders, Tatum Ranch, Dove Valley Ranch, Sentinel Rock, Terravita, Winfield Canyon Ridge and Desert Mountain to name just a few of the subdivisions in our areas of expertise. Philip works closely with Thomas Fulton and MariaElena Rizzo who have over 55 years worth of local real estate experience, not only in buying and selling homes for our customers, but also for selling and buying land, commercial properties and real estate development. The Fulton-Rizzo Team has incredible networking capabilities and we are open seven days a week for all our clients. The Hunt Distinctive Properties tagline is “WE ARE ALWAYS THERE FOR YOU,” and we are! If you are not in town we will arrange to work with our clients via Zoom, Skype or Facetime. An extra benefit for sellers who hire the Fulton-Rizzo Team to sell their property is that our office is located on prime real estate at Rancho Manana where we have people coming from all over the country to visit Ranch Manana and the Tonto Bar & Grill. They are coming in from out of town and easily fall in love with the surrounding area and they stop by our office to see what is available for sale. That’s not only an incredible advantage to our clients who are selling, but it’s so convenient for people who wish to move here. Philip is set apart by his tremendous focus, versatility, and willingness to go the extra mile. Whatever the task, he consistently demonstrates a sterling work ethic, crystal-clear communication, and rigorous follow-up. This high level of service continues to result in an ongoing stream of repeat and referral business. Clients genuinely appreciate his laser focus when it comes to listening to their needs, staying abreast of market fluctuations, and acting tenaciously when the time is right. Philip holds the designations of Certified Negotiation Expert, Luxury Sales Expert, and the Hunt Distinctive Properties designation. In his spare time, he enjoys golf, hiking, biking, cooking, and international travel. Philip and his wife Lauren love the Carefree and Cave Creek communities and happily volunteer for local charities. Philip is an Ambassador for the Carefree & Cave Creek Chamber of Commerce and is also Vice-Chairman for the Carefree Public Safety Advisory Committee.


MariaElena Rizzo

Licensed Realtor

Hailing from the Hudson Valley area of upstate New York, MariaElena has two adult children Gianna and Hunter who live in Arizona as well. They relocated to Carefree in 2005.
The Fulton-Rizzo team has a combined 55 years of experience, not only in buying and selling homes for customers but land as well as property development. The Fulton-Rizzo team represents evenly both buyers and sellers in residential and commercial transactions, everything from condos to million-dollar homes. No matter your budget, you'll get a thorough, professional and accurate representation. It starts when Tom and MariaElena listen really well to all your needs. "We sit down at the table and bring up a map to show the area. We really do interview clients. Sometimes we uncover that what a client thinks he or she wants isn't so when we dig deeper and ask the right questions," Tom explained. Tom and MariaElena work with clients from start to finish. If you are selling your abode, they focus on presentation. Do you need to declutter? Paint? Stage? They do not just marketing, but sophisticated marketing. And they know top-notch photos are key. They often go above and beyond, recently proffering hours of remodeling advice for someone getting ready to list a home for sale. As a perk to draw buyers, they offer a free seller's home warranty. In that, both sellers and buyers find peace of mind. A benefit for sellers who use the Fulton-Rizzo team is that their office is located on "prime real estate." MariaElena offered, "Every day we have people from all over the country coming to the Rancho Manana Golf Course or Tonto Bar & Grill. They're coming in from out of town, they fall in love with the area, and they stop in our office to see what's available for sale. That's not only an incredible advantage to our clients who are selling, but it's so convenient for people who wish to move here." Fun fact about the Fulton-Rizzo team's Hunt Distinctive Properties' office: It's located in the former historic Rancho Manana dude ranch cook's house. It may be rented out for parties, weddings, showers, whatever one's needs. It was plenty of square footage with a bathroom and sweeping patio (with fireplace) to enjoy the Sonoran Desert's incredible views and climate.
