Arizona State Lead

Jennifer (JZ) Zandell

Originally from New York, I moved to the Valley of the sun in 1983. I grew up in Arcadia and have raised my children, now 17 & 19, in NE Phoenix. I have been working in the Real Estate Space for most of my career. With 18 years within the Mortgage Space, both wholesale and retail divisions, then transitioning to Title in 2012. This industry has allowed me the freedom to earn a great living, while still finding balance as a Mother, Yoga teacher and allowing time for continued personal growth.

I pride myself on the ability to navigate this industry with knowledge and anticipate the needs of my clients and strategic partners. Our industry is an ever-moving target and the need to be malleable is essential in my opinion. Being agile has allowed me to find continued success in our industry.

My focus is always about “people first”, I truly believe in humanity. Being a guide to finding your “WHY”, passion, motivation, and path within your personal and business life. I believe in partnerships, not just business relationships, finding the holes that may exist within your business and finding outside of the box solutions together, while creating momentum and visibility within your sphere.

Spearheading our Arizona operations for Canyon Title Agency of Arizona, with my counterparts in Title and Escrow, Steve Blank and Ania Lokaj is quite literally a dream come true. We have been on the hunt for a company that truly puts people first, before market share, before revenue and before position. A company that believes in finding the right person and then the right seat. A company that offers global vision, with a grounded plan to reach goals, service clients with the highest level of care, and an Executive team that all work together towards the same vision. Hard to believe I know; it exists, and I am so grateful to be a part of this incredible company.

I look forward to connecting with you and learning how we can support each other and grow together.
