“I needed a career where my work mattered. The word ‘home’ is powerful. It conjures unique images and emotions in all of us. Matching people with the homes of their dreams that stir those magnificent images and feelings has been and continues to be a work of love for me every day.”
Cionne McCarthy is a consummate real estate professional, leader and humanitarian who has excelled within her community, her personal life and her industry.
Her achievements are too numerous to list. They represent a pattern of excellence over a 40-years-and-counting career capsulated most recently by her achievements in 2020, in the face of a global pandemic. McCarthy’s sales resulted in her reaching 16th out of all individual agents in Arizona and a hall of fame level placement among the “Russ Lyon’s Elite.” But 2020’s success is nothing new for McCarthy; with more than $1 billion in real estate sales, her perpetual career honors include being in the top 1% of all agents, “Top Producer” at Russ Lyon Sotheby’s International Realty for the past 39 years, listing in the “Who’s Who in Luxury Real Estate,” and “Realtor of the Year” by Broker Agent Magazine.
McCarthy was one of the original founders of the Luxury Home Tour, which not only was one of the first networking opportunities that sought to bring together top luxury agents from different real estate firms for the first time, but also one of a small number of tours that give thousands of dollars every year to multiple, thoughtfully selected charities. McCarthy has served in virtually every leadership role since its founding, including president, CEO and a continuing board member.
Paralleling her long, successful career are her community achievements. McCarthy is always willing to do the hands-on work; no job is too small or too challenging for this lady. McCarthy has been a dedicated American Heart Association Heart Ball volunteer for 13 years, having served as a chair and co-chair of numerous committees. She has also been a volunteer for Fresh Start Women’s Foundation; the Sojourner Center, whose efforts are to help victims overcome the impact of domestic violence; and the Child Crisis Nursery.
McCarthy has a compelling personal story worthy of the great American dream. She is in every sense a truly self-made woman. Her origins as a Nebraska ranch girl include competing in rodeo events such as barrel racing and pole-bending. She worked her way through college, graduating from Arizona State University with a degree in psychology. After college, she built her remarkable career in the highly competitive, cyclical Real Estate industry, where there is no recurring revenue or safety net — certainly not a career for the faint of heart. Along the way, her competitive spirit continued as an amateur polo player, and throughout her career she has demonstrated great resilience, enthusiasm, humor, compassion and high energy in everything she does. She is loved by a multitude of great friends and family who fuel the passion that she demonstrates every day.
