CATHY GREEN, MANAGING BROKER

Understanding her client’s motivations and lifestyle, deepening relationships, and contract negotiation is one of Penny’s strengths. After her many years of life’s experiences, while always aspiring to discover more, Penny has learned to anticipate issues – no small thing given the complexity of real estate transactions.

 It’s also important to me to execute every process promptly and accurately, always underpinning tasks with empathy for your particular situation.  Buying, selling, relocating, downsizing, moving, financial and family decisions – changing one’s address can be stressful.  Penny finds the most successful outcomes happen by offering the best of what she knows while ‘walking in your shoes.

The foundation is there to support them in the events that they organize to help organizations in their local communities.

Cionne McCarthy – Russ Lyon Realty & Russ Lyon Sotheby’s International Realty agent | Women’s Council of Realtors Award Winner 2021 

How long have you been a real estate agent? How long have you been with Russ Lyon Realty/ Russ Lyon Sotheby’s International Realty? As of September this year, I celebrated a 41-year career in real estate and 40 of those years with Russ Lyon Realty. 

Why did you get into real estate? After I graduated college, a mentor suggested that real estate would be a career where my work mattered. The word “home” is powerful for me. It conjures beautiful images and emotions in all of us. Matching people with the homes of their dreams has always been a passion for me! 

Do you remember why you joined Russ Lyon Realty? I joined Russ Lyon Realty because it was the iconic luxury brokerage in Arizona – and still is. 

Why have you stayed over the years? Simply put, loyalty and family. The Lyon family has always been good to me. I was hired by Dennis Lyon and had the pleasure of working alongside Jim Lyon when he started in residential real estate. Everyone in the company made it feel like a family. Every meeting, event, and piece of advertising were centered around the culture of the company, which raised the expectation and level of professionalism in the industry – a culture of family and high values. 

What keeps you here? Ultimately, I always fall back on the high standards that Russ Lyon Realty started/provided and the Sotheby’s International Realty name that this company has built upon. Russ Lyon Realty/Russ Lyon Sotheby’s International Realty is built on integrity, values, and culture. The marketing and global reach are a bonus; it is the people and the other agents in this company that has brought this company to such a caliber.  

For those who have never heard of Russ Lyon Sotheby’s International Realty, what is something they should know? I can’t imagine anyone not hearing about Russ Lyon. There is no other brokerage house in Arizona that has the history, depth of experience, or commitment to the highest level of service. 

Can you describe Russ Lyon Realty/Russ Lyon Sotheby’s International Realty in one sentence? A trusted legacy.

What changes have you seen over the years? Lots. Lots of changes – in the industry and within the company. As the business of Real Estate has grown, it has become an intricate industry where the level of professionalism that real estate agents must have has increased. As this career keeps evolving, agents and companies must evolve to keep up with and exceed the changes happening.

Russ Lyon has always been at the forefront of it all by elevating its business and needs to fit the market around it. This includes but is not limited to exceptional support and continued education to execute changes. 

When I started in the business, the contract was one page. The listing agreement was one page. A lot has changed since then, and Russ Lyon has always adapted. Through all of the years, changes, a growing city, and industry/professional growth, it became imperative that to serve our clients correctly we had to stay on top of the market standards, industry trends, and our service. Russ Lyon and now Sotheby’s have always worked from the base of “our clients are what we are working for,” and we are committed to setting the industry standard and exceeding expectations to provide the highest quality of service. 

Of course, in addition to creating the highest level of professionalism originating in 1947, Russ Lyon, with all of its’ connections, values, and commitment to luxury service, regardless of price point, then adding the Sotheby’s International Realty name has solidly placed us at the top in both national and international markets. This was an absolute win for our clientele. This excellent company partnership brings professional standards and a marketing package that reaches the world for our clients with accurate White Glove Service. 

Anything else you would like to add? Yes, if I may, I just want to say something about Deems Dickinson. Deems has been a part of the Russ Lyon family since before I was an agent. He was wonderful as an agent and is an excellent Designated Broker. Deems is the type of person that is calm, collected, committed, honorable, genuine, approachable, wise, and knowledgeable. He is a true example of what Russ Lyon Realty and Russ Lyon Sotheby’s International Realty is about. He provides exceptional leadership, not only to our clients but to all of the agents. He is a fantastic human being in every sense of the word.

 Q & A with Polo Champion – Nic Roldan 

Fueled by talent, charisma, and passion, Nic Roldan is the leading American polo player with an impressive 8-goal handicap rating. He is the youngest polo player in the world to win the prestigious U.S. Open Polo title at 15 and has captained Team USA, winning victoriously on all five continents at every level; Nic attracts worldwide acclaim. His commitment to increasing awareness and participation in the sport he loves with a broader audience of players and new spectators reflects his passionate dedication to Polo. 

Nic will return and headline the Bentley Scottsdale Polo Championships on November 5th at West World of Scottsdale. 

Nic Roldan is a licensed REALTOR®; see NicRoldan.com with Equestrian Sotheby’s International Realty in Wellington, Florida. He also develops, flips, and constructs properties, having personally created eight properties. 

Russ Lyon Sotheby’s International Realty had the opportunity to sit down with this America Polo Star to get his take on playing polo in the desert and how his journey began. 

Tell us how you were first introduced to the sport of polo. 

It runs in the family; I’m a 4th generation polo player. 

Is polo your first love, or is there another sport you love equally? 

I love sports, and that competitive spirit gets translated into all areas. Off the polo field, I’m an avid golfer. When I was a kid, I played junior golf and got into the Junior Olympics with roller hockey. 

For those who have never played polo, what makes the sport so fascinating to watch and play? 

The athleticism of the horses and athletes is a perfect mix of beauty and power, the symbiosis between man and horse. The adrenaline. 

Do you have any goals you hope to still achieve in the sport? 

Yes, always! To win another U.S. Open Polo Championships and to play in Argentina again at the game’s highest level. Likewise, I’m passionate about continuing to grow the sport of polo and highlighting the horses in it. 

What are you looking forward to when coming to the Bentley Scottsdale Polo Championships on November 5th? 

The energy, the fans, the support, and the infectious excitement that the event generates. 

You have played all over the world, including Scottsdale, several times. How does the Valley of the Sun and Scottsdale, in particular, compare to some of the other polo destinations you regularly play? 

For the most part, Polo is played in warm climates, and during that time, Scottsdale’s climate is perfect. It’s a showcase event truly bringing polo to a whole new and fresh demographic, and the vibe is fantastic. 

Any advice for those looking to get into Polo? 

Don’t stress about the rules too much, as often that inhibits you from enjoying the game’s fluidity. The most critical factor for anyone getting into the sport is the actual riding, that is, the belt and braces of our sport; if you can master riding, you are 70% there.

75 Years Serving Arizona

The Lyon family was at the forefront of transforming the Valley into what it is today through development and real estate, dating back to World War II when Russ Lyon moved here, got his real estate license, and started Russ Lyon Realty in 1947.

Russ’ son Dennis took over the real estate practice in 1968 as the company’s president, continuing to dominate the luxury market, primarily in Scottsdale and Paradise Valley, and growing the company to about 350 agents. 

Dennis’ son Jim bought the company from his father in 2008 and merged it with Sotheby’s International Realty in 2014. 

As of 2022, Russ Lyon Sotheby’s International Realty now has 13 offices, 900+ agents, and services locations like Tubac, Flagstaff & everywhere in between. 

Read more about how Russ Lyon Sotheby’s International Realty has been serving Arizona since 1947 below. 


2022 is a banner year for Russ Lyon Sotheby’s International Realty. 75 years ago, in 1947, Russ Lyon founded the Russ Lyon Realty Company. 

During these 75 years, Russ Lyon Sotheby’s International Realty has grown into a 7 billion dollar, full-service luxury real estate brokerage with more than 900 full-time real estate advisors and 13 offices across Arizona from Tubac and Tucson to Scottsdale, Carefree, Gilbert, Peoria, and Fountain Hills to Prescott, Sedona, and Flagstaff. 

If you’ve been around Phoenix long enough, you remember when a huge, well-landscaped billboard at 24th and Camelback had a lion on it advertising Russ Lyon Realty, which was the premier home sales agency in the Valley. The Lyon family is really royalty in the Arizona real estate world.

Grady Gammage Jr., a long-time Valley land-use attorney and partner at Gammage & Burnham in Phoenix.

The brokerage continues strategic growth by investing in its people through innovation, exceptional service, and leadership, providing maximum returns to all its agents and clients. 

I am very proud of Russ Lyon Sotheby’s International Realty for reaching our diamond milestone, as we continue to represent buyers and sellers locally and internationally always giving our clients the white-glove services they deserve and have come to expect. Our real estate advisors across Arizona are our core business, they work tirelessly to provide the best service possible while upholding the standards and ethics that make Russ Lyon Sotheby’s International Realty Arizona’s real estate leader.

Jim Lyon, chairman

The story of Russ Lyon Sotheby’s International Realty began in 1947 when Russ Lyon Sr. founded Russ Lyon Realty with just three employees. 

Lyon had been an accomplished saxophone player in New York City and, in the 1930s, formed Russ Lyon and his orchestra during the significant band era. He decided to relocate his family, wife Janis, and sons Rusty and Dennis to Hollywood, CA, to further his music career in the mid-1940s. While crossing Arizona, Rusty came down with Valley Fever. So, they wintered in the small farm town of Mesa so Rusty could recover.

One winter was enough to convince Russ that he’d found Heaven in The Valley of the Sun, Arizona. He changed the family’s plans, deciding to remain in Arizona permanently. 

There being no music industry to speak of in The Valley, Russ decided in 1947 to start a real estate company and named it Russ Lyon Realty.

The family moved to an adobe home on Cattletrack Drive in Scottsdale, where actual cattle drives were a common occurrence. This home still stands and is known as the Stable Galleria. 

Russ built the company into a luxury powerhouse in Paradise Valley, Scottsdale, and Phoenix by always treating clients fairly, with dignity, respect, and professionalism. To this day, a business ethic is a cornerstone of Russ Lyon Sotheby’s International Realty.

Russ’s son, Dennis, entered the family real estate business as a young man and eventually took the reins in the 1970s. Dennis built upon the solid foundation his father had created, and Russ Lyon Realty Company grew and prospered for several decades. Russ’s other son, Rusty, went into commercial real estate and founded Westcor, a company that revolutionized the American shopping mall concept and built some of the most successful malls in the United States, including Scottsdale Fashion Square.

In the 1990s, Dennis’ son, Jim Lyon, joined the company and quickly climbed the ranks from agent to management. In 2004, Jim partnered with long-time friend and successful Russ Lyon Realty agent Todd Gillenwater and opened franchise offices in Sedona, Prescott, and Flagstaff. In 2008, Jim and Todd purchased Russ Lyon Realty from Dennis, which they merged with another local brokerage to create Russ Lyon Sotheby’s International Realty, Arizona’s dominant luxury real estate firm. 

In 2012, Jim and Todd invited top-producing agent and friend Tom Locati to join the company as partners. 

In 2014, the Russ Lyon Foundation was formed and was recently recognized in the Top 3 mid-sized companies for corporate philanthropy and volunteerism. Together, Jim Lyon, Todd Gillenwater, and Tom Locati have continued the traditions and ethics that Russ Lyon Sr. started 75 years ago, and Russ Lyon Sotheby’s International Realty continues to lead the industry by example. 

In 2021, the company closed over 7,000 successful transactions, totaling more than 7 billion dollars in Arizona real estate.
