Meet The Team

Elise Otero
Designated Broker/Owner

OTERO REALTY GROUP, INC.1000 W. Apache Trail, Ste. 107, Apache Junction, AZ 85120

My reputation is everything to me. Working hard, achieving goals, and striving to be the best at what I do in all aspects of my life has always been my way. I obtained my real estate license in 1978 while living in Globe, Arizona.

I went to work for a broker that had the last independently owned escrow company in the state. The knowledge I gained from preparing documents for transactions has proven to be a huge and invaluable contribution to my success.

As a Real Estate Broker and Property Manager with 37 years experience, I am passionate about helping people! I am married to an awesome, supportive husband. Between us we have five grown, successful children and five wonderful grandchildren.

We love rock & roll, dancing and, of course, cars. We drive our 1935 Plymouth coupe in parades and regularly sponsor the Apache Junction Chamber of Commerce Annual Car Show.

Lisha Newell
Associate Broker

I believe that people are the business. We are energetic listeners and problem solvers.

My first job in the real estate industry was in the early 90s working for a home builder in Gold Canyon. I was then offered a job with a local title company that I couldn’t refuse. I worked there until the birth of my son and chose to stay home with my family. In 2000 I went to work for Judy Holder Insurance in Apache Junction. In 2005 I decided to get my real estate license and open Otero Realty Group, Inc. with my Mom, Elise Otero.

My husband and I own a Harley Davidson motorcycle and enjoy meeting up with friends and taking road trips to places like Durango, Colorado or Florida.

As an Associate Broker with Otero Realty Group I truly enjoy helping people find the home of their dreams.

Wendi L. Farnsworth
Realtor / Bookkeeper

I am the newest member of the Otero Team. I have a background in Commercial, Residential, & Property Management Real Estate Services. I also have experience with Office Management, Accounting & Administration.

I was first introduced to Real Estate in 2003 working as the office manager for a Commercial Real Estate Broker. He was a great mentor and teacher. I was fascinated and intrigued with the vast knowledge of experience, determination and effort involved with the Real Estate Transactions the  Broker and Agents had to deal with.  I loved it! So there I was, like a sponge absorbing information on all aspects to include investments, sales, leasing & contacts, anything pertaining to the real estate transaction the firm provided to the owners, tenants, and investors. The last 4 years I’ve been working for a full brokerage firm that provided Commercial, Residential and Property Management Services.

I have a passion for Real Estate and I’m very excited to be working with Elise and Lisha at Otero Realty Group. We look forward to providing you with the utmost professional services to fit your Real Estate needs.
