About Our Company

Founded in 2009

Jerry Centner, the Designated Broker and Managing Member of Red Hawk Property Management, is a third generation Arizona Native. After serving five years in the US Army as an investigator and a successful management career with one of the largest International Delivery Companies in the world, based in Australia, he founded or co-founded several local companies which are still extremely successful today. In the early 2000’s Jerry became active in the Phoenix real estate market. He started his formal training with Coldwell Banker and quickly became a top agent in the areas of single family homes sales, and the sale of small multifamily properties. Jerry wanted to learn all that he could about the real estate industry so he spent the next few years gaining additional experience at RE/MAX, Russ Lyon, and Long Realty.

From the beginning of Jerry Centner’s real estate career he wanted to form a professional, transparent real estate company that focused on the needs of the landlord. He dreamed of a company that would be honest with all parties, but that would work for and with, the property owners.

After being a top REO agent for numerous banks, Jerry and Tina Hatch began to plan their own real estate brokerage. The new company, which would later become Red Hawk Property Management, would specialize in the management of single family homes, condo’s, and town homes for the benefit of the Landlord. Our goal would be to always be honest and responsive with the tenants, but our fiduciary responsibility would be to our client, the landlord.

In early 2009 Red Hawk Realty LLC was formed and the doors opened at our Mesa, AZ office. Our goal was and still is, to provide the latest technology, have cost effective and transparent rates, and be an accurate and professional property management company servicing all of Maricopa and Northern Pinal Counties. Red Hawk Realty started with about 10 properties, and is currently successfully managing approximately 400 properties.

Kayla Vess

Kayla Vess

Assistant to the Broker

I am a military spouse of an active duty Army Recruiter. I have a 5 year old daughter and two furry children....both of which are small horses. One is a Mastiff/Shepherd mix and then I have a pure bread German Shepherd. I have always had to have a career that I could take with me wherever the Army made us go. I attended school for interior design/decorating having a passion for the esthetics of a home the question was how do I take this further? So I pursued a career in Real Estate and received my license in Wisconsin. I worked for Berkshire Hathaway and was awarded the customer service of the year award in 2014 and the Diamond award for sales in 2015. My husband came down on orders to move to Arizona creating the urgency for me to obtain my Arizona Real Estate license.

Until I found Jerry and the Red Hawk management team I found myself struggling to manage my own rentals. His diligent screening process and hands on management team have kept my units consistently rented. I thank him and recommend Red Hawk Realty to anyone owning investment property. Keep up the great work!

Steve Snyder

I have written so few letters like this over the years but I felt compelled to write you both. When I first called your office I was surprised that someone actually answered the phone on a Saturday morning. You see I had called several other property management companies and had left messages with not one of them calling me back…

Susan and Matt G.

My partner and I have owned investment property in Arizona since 2004. I’ve worked with three other property management firms, larger, professional firms, and husband and wife teams.
