About Our Company

Founded in 2009

Jerry Centner, the Designated Broker and Managing Member of Red Hawk Property Management, is a third generation Arizona Native. After serving five years in the US Army as an investigator and a successful management career with one of the largest International Delivery Companies in the world, based in Australia, he founded or co-founded several local companies which are still extremely successful today. In the early 2000’s, Jerry became active in the Phoenix real estate market. He started his formal training with Coldwell Banker and quickly became a top agent in the areas of single-family homes sales, and the sale of small multifamily properties. Jerry wanted to learn all that he could about the real estate industry, so he spent the next few years gaining additional experience at RE/MAX, Russ Lyon, and Long Realty.

From the beginning of Jerry Centner’s real estate career, he wanted to form a professional, transparent real estate management company that focused on the needs of the landlord. He dreamed of a company that would be honest with all parties, but that would work for and with the property owners.

After being a top REO agent for numerous banks, Jerry Centner and Tina Hatch began to plan their own real estate brokerage. The new company, which would later become Red Hawk Property Management, would specialize in the management of single-family homes, condos, and townhomes for the benefit of the Landlord. Our goal would be to always be honest and responsive to the tenants, but our fiduciary responsibility would be to our client, the landlord.

In early 2009, Red Hawk Realty LLC was formed and the doors opened at our Mesa, AZ office. Our goal was, and still is, to provide the latest technology, have cost-effective and transparent rates, and be an accurate and professional property management company servicing all of Maricopa and Northern Pinal Counties. Red Hawk Realty started with about 10 properties and is currently successfully managing approximately 400 properties.

Until I found Jerry and the Red Hawk management team I found myself struggling to manage my own rentals. His diligent screening process and hands on management team have kept my units consistently rented. I thank him and recommend Red Hawk Realty to anyone owning investment property. Keep up the great work!

Steve Snyder

I have written so few letters like this over the years but I felt compelled to write you both. When I first called your office I was surprised that someone actually answered the phone on a Saturday morning. You see I had called several other property management companies and had left messages with not one of them calling me back…

Susan and Matt G.

My partner and I have owned investment property in Arizona since 2004. I’ve worked with three other property management firms, larger, professional firms, and husband and wife teams. Each firm we have worked with has failed to meet our expectations. Our expectations, simply put, were to manage it as if you owned it, high integrity, honest…

Mark & Michelle

They are the best management company ever. Rented from them for two years and they always responded when we reached out to them.

Bobby and Karen W.

Alex did an excellent job on our move out inspection. Professional and honest. He also was easy to talk with. We did a little damage to two closet doors and were happy to pay for that. He was direct and to the point.

Bill G.

Today is a happy and a sad day. My wife and I are moving back to Texas after living in Gilbert for the past three years. We have enjoyed renting from Red Hawk for the past three years and will miss the interactions that we have had with the office staff. Everyone always seemed to enjoy what they do, and had a smile both on the phone and in person. We will miss you guys.

Hanke and Gwen

First review ever. Great job letting my husband and I travel and enjoy our retirement. We knew that our properties were being well taken care of. We will continue to recommend you to both family and friends.

Ernest and Birdie

I only wish Red Hawk had an office in Texas. You are the standard that I judge others by and no one even comes close to Red Hawk.

Rusty W.

My wife and I have been renting from you for over seven years. We are relocating to Utah for work, but wanted Red Hawk Property Management to know we will miss you. You always treated us with respect and were quick to respond to any issue.
