Founder & Visionary

Relentless, dynamic, and energetic, Brian North, Founder and Visionary for North&Co., Real Estate by Trade. Based in the heart of Phoenix, Arizona, North&Co. is a vibrant residential real estate firm. The North&Co. vision and scalable design are founded on five core values: innovation, specialization, authenticity, commitment, and teamwork. These five core values drive business decisions and ignite growth in people and production every day.

Over the last decade, the Metro-Phoenix marketplace experienced some of the most vibrant and tumultuous market-shifts in the Country. In that time, Brian became a student of the market and its ever-changing conditions in a pursuit to find better ways to engage with the consumer, secure a clientele-based business, and refine how real estate is transacted. Brian is driven by his own personal pursuit to merge old-school with new-school tactics and reinvent new business models. Phoenix has been a breeding ground for doing just that. From seasonality, lifestyle, and investor trends to bubble explosion, bubble implosion, rebound, and revival…Brian has a ‘knack’ for identifying ways to create new opportunities, in any market condition. His strategies are tested and proven through his sustained success as an investor, an individual agent, a team lead, and a founder of one of the fastest-growing and most productive residential brokerage firms in Arizona.

Brian finds passion and purpose in connecting with people, sharing experiences, and, together, elevating and innovating the traditional world of real estate.
