Out and About in Ahwatukee

Real estate agent Amy Richardson shares a day in her life around town

Long-time resident and real estate agent Amy Richardson knows and loves the people and places of Ahwatukee. Supporting local businesses and creating connections are important to her. She shares a day with us and shows us some of her favorite local spots.

Richardson has been in real estate for more than five years and has sold numerous homes across Ahwatukee. “It’s a community where anyone can find a place they belong. I feel safe and connected here.”

8:00 a.m. – HUB Fitness

Richardson kicks off her day with a workout. “I love the HUB. Craig, the owner, cares about his clients and treats us like family. He has created an atmosphere that’s inclusive and special.”

9:30 a.m. – Brunch Snob

When Richardson sells a home for a client or matches a buyer to their home, she loves to celebrate with them. “I’m always excited about new local places. Brunch Snob has really good food and drinks, and they go out of their way to make the experience a good one.”

12:00 p.m. – Philanthropy meeting

Richardson is an avid supporter of charitable efforts. She is a member of several local charities and organizations, including 100+ Women Who Care, ICAN and Boys Team Charity, which she participates with her son, Brady. And before her daughter, Kylee, graduated from Desert Vista, they were involved with National Charity League together. Richardson says recognizing how fortunate she is inspires her give back. “Every philanthropic effort we support helps my kids realize that there are people who don’t have the same opportunities that we have. Giving back with my children allows me to teach them to be pillars of the community and to leave the world a better place than they found it.”

2:00 p.m. – In the office

Back in her home office, Richardson is busy with the daily tasks of running her own business, from putting together comparative market analyses and preparing contracts to marketing. But she says the power of connectedness and community values are what fuel her. “Being in connection with people is where I feel the most useful and powerful. I love knowing someone is exactly where they want to be and should be.”

3:15 p.m. – Home showing with the Fortun family

Showing houses to families is a favorite part of Richardson’s job. “Everyone needs to find that place where they feel at home. There’s a satisfaction in helping someone find a home and community they love as much I love my home and community.”


4:00 p.m. – The Cellar: Wine and Tapas

Richardson likes The Cellar: Wine and Tapas for their wine selection, delicious food and homey ambiance. “They’re a small local restaurant, so I often get the same server. It’s perfect for meeting friends and colleagues – it’s just so warm and inviting.”

6:00 p.m. – At home

At the end of the day, Richardson loves to cozy up at her home. “I like to take time to reflect. It’s really important to take time to be grateful; it’s a practice I live by and one I try to teach my kids.”
