Medina Hospitality, Owner
As an Arizona native growing up in Phoenix, Sara majored in business and real estate at ASU. During her time there, she met her future husband Nick Medina.
After graduation, Sara pursued a career in title and escrow; then later finance. The couple has two kids, Jarod and Avery. Their son is attending ASU and their daughter will be attending Washington State University.
The couple has been investing in residential and commercial real estate since 2005. In 2007 they started Medina Enterprises and then Medina Hospitality in 2018. They currently manage a real estate portfolio that includes hospitality and commercial properties.
“When we purchased The Motor Lodge in January 2021, it was a new and exciting challenge for us,” Sara says. “Since then we have also brought on the Grand Highland Hotel and The Prescott Pines Inn.”
Having a great team in place allows the businesses to constantly be improving the guest experience and creating new and exciting experiences, she says.
“My next challenge is to start the Yavapai College wine program in the fall and dive deeper into the world of wine and see where that may lead!”
