 I grew up in Southern California, Anaheim and Yorba Linda area. In 2005 I obtained my Contractors license allowing me to do upgrades & repairs of residential and commercial properties. Since moving to Arizona in 2015 I have worked with a few independent Real Estate investors managing and maintaining their properties.


To allow myself to expand my knowledge and abilities to be better service to my clients, I obtained my Real Estate license in June of 2019. I have now joined the Team at “Innovative Property Solutions” and Susan Schiveley, allowing me and my clients a full service Real Estate experience.


My enthusiasm for helping others along with the dedication to details and the “Common Good” help me connect with my clients and provide the best service possible.

Ronald Dowdy
AZ / CA Agent and
In House Attorney



Hi there, my name is Dennette Burris. I grew up in Southern California in a small town. Our family used to travel on vacation trips to the Colorado River in Arizona. This is where I fell in love with the area. The climate. The river. The beauty of the desert. I have been coming to Bullhead City for nearly 30 years. 

I started my real estate career in California in the late 80's. I began working for an escrow company to further my knowledge of processes in the paperwork part of the business. I then went to work in real estate and continued my education with real estate. I enjoyed working with buyers to find them what they were looking for whether it was a home or vacant land. 

Sonja has worked with reputable real estate agencies since 2008, including MGR Real Estate and is currently with Innovative Property Solutions, licensed ® in California and Arizona.  Her business is built on: Dedication, Communication, Determination and Trust.

She has been specializing in  residential properties and brings an abundance of energy, dedication and great negotiating skills to her clients for over 8 years. Jennifer and her husband have both lived in the Corona/Norco area over 40 years. Jennifer loves to spend time with her family, go camping and desert riding.

have been doing real estate for the past 11 years. I have represented buyers and sellers. A part of that time, I also worked directly with Fannie Mae and sold more than 200 REO's. Prior to working as a Real Estate Agent, I worked on the mortgage side for 7 years doing residential home loans.  I feel I can better help my clients as I have worked on both sides of the transaction and know the steps to close a transaction successfully and problem solve any issues that may arise.

My family is number one in my life.  I am married and have 3 wonderful children.  Being in real estate has given me the freedom to be the hands on mom that I want to be while being able to successfully serve my client's needs.  I love helping first time home buyers and families find the home of their dreams and then turn it into reality.
