James Michener


Patience -- it's a rare quality in today's hurry-up world -- and the cornerstone of my personal touch business approach. Time and attention are gifts that I give freely -- listening while my clients share their dreams and goals, then answering their questions and helping them explore their options without pressure.

Because of my previous positions as an Enrollment Counselor with Grand Canyon University & five years as a Personal Banker with Wells Fargo Bank I feel strongly that I have the experience necessary in assisting people in life changing situations. To ensure a successful experience, I will utilize all my talents and expertise to help guide you through this unfamiliar and sometimes emotional process.

My decision to enter the field of real estate evolved from a unique opportunity shared with me as I observed and learned from my guardian, Steve Collins, as he excelled in his profession. He has taught me that honesty, hard work, and follow through are the simple ingredients to a job well done. My passion for Real Estate grew through my deep love and respect for my home town of Prescott and its surrounding areas. Throughout my childhood, in watching my community grow I now believe I have an opportunity to participate in a positive way in our hometown''s future.

They say do what you love, and you will prosper. I feel I have the best of both worlds, I get to live where I love and practice developing and selling what I love; Prescott. For me it was never wanting to become a sales person of Real Estate because when it comes to the Prescott area it sells itself. I want the opportunity to help people discover what Prescott is, fall in love with our hometown and develop it in to the best small town in the country. In doing so, I will help to develop a stronger sense of community within our area. This will reflect in the decision making of our governing boards, our daily treatment of our towns, forests, and most importantly the health of our community. I would like to thank you for giving me the chance to introduce myself and I hope to one day be of assistance in your Real Estate needs.

David Hall


My wife and I were raised in beautiful Prescott Arizona. As a young adult I ventured out into the western most parts of North America, after living in Oregon, California, Nevada, and backpacking the Hawaiian Islands. As a firm believer in "Everything happens for a reason," I chose not to question the overwhelming amount of love that my wife proposed to me. We have been together ever since and we currently raise our two kind, smart, loving young boys in the same safe and outstanding community in which we were brought up.

Knowing what I know about construction and being so absolutely dedicated to giving back to the community that has given so much to our family. I would become a Realtor in order to not only help my peers that stayed in this community raising their families hoping to accomplish the dream of buying their own home. But pass on my knowledge of the entire county, my passion for its growth and love for its community to anyone moving in to "Everybodys Home Town" To this day we have dedicated ourselves to simply doing the right thing and passing that bit along to our children. We are proud to be members of the Prescott community and are equally as proud to teach others about the place that we call home.

Victoria Duke


I was born and raised in Arizona, I have spent the majority of my life in various areas of Northern Arizona. I have called Chino Valley, Camp Verde, Prescott, Prescott Valley and Dewey-Humboldt home. My Husband and I have chosen to raise our 2 amazing children in the quad-city area. We enjoy living in a community where our kids can run and play outside the majority of the year. Where we can take family fishing trips and hike thumb butte or quartz mountain, or kayak at one of the lakes. The area has so much to offer, from the awesome weather, to the soil for gardening, to the summer swimming lessons and activities on the square.

Prior to Real Estate I spent over 12 years in heavy-civil construction and over 5 years in the service industry. I hope that my unique background, combined with my work ethic, dedication and knowledge of the area, allow me to provide you the best and most personal service you need in this exciting time.
