Who we are and
what we're all about...

Click here for 10 unique Bloodhound is a team of Metropolitan Phoenix/
Scottsdale real estate professionals working together to rewrite the rules of real estate sales and service. We combine a high-tech sensibility with high-touch sensitivity – an excitement for the modern with a reverence for enduring values. The internet, surely, is the second best tool a Realtor can deploy – and we use the internet better than any of our competitors. But the best tool – always – is integrity, and without integrity there is nothing.

We believe in clear, detailed, complete communication – and who could doubt that after reading this web site! Where other Realtors hope to dazzle you with pretty pictures, we bend over backward to tell you the whole, unvarnished truth about real estate transactions – how they succeed and why they sometimes fail. It can be a comfort, at times, to 'leave it to the experts'. But real estate decisions can have very costly, life-long consequences. If you want to know every detail about your transaction, we're here to share it.

Our passion is to do the best we can do, to find the best house at the best price, to find the best-qualified buyer for your home, to negotiate the best terms, to help our clients reach the best decisions, making the best possible investment. We're not about doing deals, we're about forging relationships. We want for you, as our client, to be so delighted by our efforts that you cannot conceive of working with another Realtor.

Above all, we are about family – yours and ours. And while we might be a small business, there is nothing small – or small-time or small-minded – in the way we do business. We want to be your Realtor for life. We will do everything we can to make that happen.

Who is whom?

Greg Swann, ABR, CBR, CRS, E-Pro, GRI, is a Realtor and the Designated Broker for He is an Accredited Buyer's Representative, a Certified Buyer's Representative, a Certified Residential Specialist, an E-Pro Internet Certified Realtor and a Graduate of the Realtor Institute. He speaks frequently on real estate issues and writes a weekly column for West Valley sections of the Arizona Republic. Greg spent many years in hi-tech print and direct-mail advertising production and web-site development before becoming a Realtor. He is a mumbling Latinist, a stumbling applications programmer and a bumbling poet.

Cathleen Collins, GRI, in addition to being a first-rate Realtor, is our transaction coordinator. She keeps the schedules and verifies the details, making sure that transactions close when and as planned. She holds the Graduate of the Realtor Institute designation and is working toward the Certified Residential Specialist and Accredited Buyer's Representative designations. Cathleen's first career was in financial technology, putting Bloodhound at the technical cutting edge. She devotes most of her spare time and all of her spare money to rescuing unwanted animals – including our Spokesmodel, Odysseus.

Our son Cameron Swann is our programmer. Working primarily in the PHP programming language, his software produces many of the web pages a site like this requires. Cameron is a full-time student, an incipient Saint Mary's Knight.

Odysseus the Spokesmodel is the Bloodhound behind He is the model for our advertising, but also the model for our behavior: Devoted. Dedicated. Determined. He is one of thirteen adopted animals in our home, but he's the only one who pays his own way. Click here for a Glamour Shot of Odysseus the Spokesmodel.

Success Stories...

"I've been an admirer of the talents and ethics of Cathleen Collins for many, many years so when Greg Swann began admiring her talents also, I knew he must be a winner too. He proved me right.
     A few years ago Greg spent hours and hours of quality time with my young son, helping him buy his first house. The education was invaluable. He went way beyond our expectations, referred us to a quality team for financing, helped us with contracting for a cement block wall to bring the home up to the neighborhood standard and generally made us feel great about the house we were buying.
     Neither my son or I would think of going to anyone but Bloodhound Realty for trustworthy, quality, professional service." – Sally S

"Lisa and I wanted to let you know what a great experience we had working with you from start to finish. We still find it hard to believe we landed the house we wanted and in the area we desired given this hot market. Your persistence paid off and it is sincerely appreciated. Also, thank you so much for the great communication and follow through with every question or issue we had no matter how large or small. You consistently went above and beyond to make it easier for us as out of state buyers and we felt engaged in the process but not overwhelmed. A very nice touch was creating the website of photos to allow us to see the house and share the photos with friends and family. We were also extremely impressed with the great and thorough team you assembled. From our loan officer to our inspector we felt like everything was completely taken care of. This allowed us to focus our attention on moving, not the details of the transaction. I believe things could not have been easier on our side and we will highly recommend Bloodhound Realty to our friends and family." – Robert and Lisa P.

"I do not know Greg as a Real Estate Broker. I knew him as the parent of one of my violin students. What qualities did he display during that time? Total commitment and dedication to his son. He always showed up for lessons-on time- picked up his son-on time- got all the music and necessary equipment-right away- and was willing to invest good money to buy his son a decent violin. He was 100% rooting for his son. And what impressed me most was that he never missed a concert, no matter how busy he was. I believe he puts that kind of dedication and commitment towards his clients.
     Greg has tremendous energy and knowledge. When I need a Real Estate Agent he will be the first one I contact." – Edna B

Still with us? Maybe it's time we got married...

We think we produce more value for our clients than the Realtors we compete with. Since you've read this far, it could be you agree. The natural thing to do on the web is to just keep shopping. If you do that, before long you will want to come back here, so , so you don't lose it. (If you clicked that link and nothing happened, you'll have to Add to Favorites manually.) If you are truly motivated to buy, sell, relocate to or invest in a home, you should go ahead and fill out the form to find your ideal new home, get a Comparative Market Analysis of your home's value, or make an appointment to meet in your home or our offices. We would love it if you would tell your friends and neighbors about us. And if all that self-revelation is too much to bear, think about this: You're going to reveal yourself to somebody, eventually. Aren't you better off 'getting married' to the Realtors who have been honest with you straight down the line, from the very first?
