Meet the Team

Judy
Ritter

dirt 12 scaled

Adventure seeker Judy has been there done that. She is mom, grandma, sister and the voice of reason for innumerable souls. She is the quiet counterpoint  to the out-front voice behind the DRRE team. Because of Judy, Dirt Road Real Estate was on the audit honor roll the very first time the company went thru a Real Estate audit. A remarkable feat given the volume the company does. Judy has millions of miles on her bike and her hiking shoes so if you catch her after 9am, she’s had her workout in for the day already!

One of the founders of Dirt Road Real Estate, Judy comes to the table with expertise in many different areas of life. She’s been a Doctor, Chiropractor, Librarian, Construction manager, Realtor and Broker. She can speak to the passion of so many varieties of interest, from farming and ranching to air strips, dark sky and gyro pads.

Judy is in the office and available for your guidance at the very beginning and through the end of your adventure to find the right home or piece of land.

Elise Harron

Mom, daughter, mother, wife, cowgirl, electrician’s helper, construction manager, development manager, rookie vet tech,  my most beloved position MeeMaw, and of course Realtor! One of the founders of Dirt Road Real Estate, I wear many hats!

I did not set out to “become” a rural land specialist… I realized that I AM a Rural Land Specialist, and then I BECAME a Realtor and eventually a Broker! So I already understand the costs and hurdles of changing a rural piece of land into a homestead, a farm or an escape property. AND I think everyone should live like I do – so I’m the right person to talk to about rural property adventures.

I prefer to work East of Kingman, West of Ashfork and North of WIkieup – BUT for some I’ll go to the fringes of the DRRE preferred areas.

Leanne is a 2017 escapee from Indiana, Kingman Golden Valley Association of Realtors (KGVAR) 2018 Rookie of the year and  2021 President of KGVAR, Leanne also sits on the Sheriffs’ Advisory Council.   Leanne quickly learned the areas of Golden Valley, Kingman in town, Kingman north, Dolan Springs, Chloride, White Hills and Yucca. Leanne is your expert in these areas, but a professional in everything she does.  Leanne currently holds the following specialty certificates:  GRI (Graduate Realtor Institute), rCRMS (Certified Risk Management Specialist), Pricing Strategy Advisor (PSA),and MRP (Military Relocation Professional).

Living in Golden Valley with her husband and two dogs on two acres, Leanne truly loves the peacefulness of Golden Valley as well as the overall friendliness within Mohave County.  She enjoys reading, writing and counted cross stitch.

Ralph
O 'Donnal

Farmer, Contractor, Well Driller, Solar Contractor, Husband, Father and now Realtor – Ralph wears a LOT of hats.  Ralph joined the Dirt Road Team to tend to the needs of those interested in the Wikieup area of Arizona but he is an invaluable guy to have involved any part of your off-grid experience.

Ralph has a very difficult schedule so when you get to spend time with him it is very valuable.  You are sure to learn about any number of different things from Dark Sky to Solar to Well Recovery. Ralph and his family have lived offgrid for more than two decades – he is a walking library of solar, wind and farming information.

Ralph is lucky to have Janay process his real estate documents for him allowing him to have a crazy busy schedule and still get matters attended to in a timely and professional manner.

All this while being part of a great company with interesting people who work well together to get the job done right. As a new licensee and I want to learn from a team that strives to be the best!

I love the wild open spaces of the northern Arizona desert and I want to grow my real estate experience in our rural communities.

I’ve lived in many communities, both rural and urban, and different states. When our kids were younger, we started looking for a place for our family to ‘play’ that wasn’t so full of people as the congested parks and camping areas that were available to us. In 2013, we bought 45 acres in the rural mountains of Mohave County to hike, shoot, and camp on—truly one of the definitions of ‘quiet enjoyment’ of our property (okay, mostly quiet…). That property started a love affair with a new countryside, county, and lifestyle, and a place for us to put down roots, and now Kingman is home.

I became a realtor to help other people find their quiet enjoyment—whatever that is for them. I look forward to connecting people with what speaks to them, whether it’s the right house, their dream piece of land, or a parcel that allows them to design their future. My recent experience of working with a fantastic contractor to build a stick-built house 40 miles outside of a city center off 4 miles of dirt road and ending up with a beautiful home that has utility company power, septic, and a well has taught me more about that process than any book ever could. I’m a problem-solver at heart, and matching up a client with their ‘right’ property is a wonderful ‘problem’ to solve.

I’m most comfortable with the area east of Kingman, but am excited about working with our team to gain expertise in other areas of the county.

Janay Richardson

My name is Janay Richardson. I was raised in Las Vegas, NV and live in Henderson currently. I have a degree in Special Education / Elementary Education. I have 2 children and a husband of 9 years. Currently I work for a Paving company during the day and Dirt Road Real Estate 24/7.

I chose to be a realtor because I wanted a little something extra out of life and realty has always been very interesting to me. It is very fulfilling to be a part of someone’s dream coming true. Never gets old.

I handle paperwork for Elise and Ralph so they can be out in the field every day. I am a fully licensed Realtor but work behind the scenes. I love working from home and being with my kids. In doing so my expertise would be writing contracts and keeping up with Elise.
