How does a litter of puppies abandoned on the Navajo reservation end up with a real estate broker in Prescott? Real estate to the rescue!
Wendi Roudybush, Associate Broker with Garden Brook Realty, fosters puppies younger than eight weeks, raising them until they are old enough to be adopted by the animal shelters and rescue groups she works with.
Wendi has fostered more than 250 puppies over the last 10 years, taking anywhere from three to five litters a year, both with and without their mothers. Assisting in this endeavor are three very patient adult dogs, each with their own interesting story. She has also raised two puppies for Guide Dogs for the Blind, one that is a working guide for a young blind woman in California.
Wendi served as a board member for a small but very effective rural animal shelter, and she advocates to promote spay and neuter programs. Just as some people tithe to their church, Wendi gives 10 percent of her real estate commission income to deserving animal welfare organizations.
With a deeply rooted passion for real estate, Wendi has been in the industry since 1991. She was a sales manager for a custom home builder and owned a small mortgage company, offering in-depth knowledge of both new construction and real estate financing. Wendi also wrote a real estate column for The (Prescott) Daily Courier for several years.
As a landlord herself, Wendi understands residential income properties and can help analyze your purchase or sale of a valuable investment. Garden Brook Realty has a property management division, so it can serve you and your income properties if you’d like to have professional management.
