Our Philosophy

We believe that real estate as an investment vehicle has the power to change lives. Real estate investing offers a level of control that you won’t find in the stock market casino (as we call it).

Many people hope to get involved with real estate investing but don’t know where to start. Our team is skilled in providing sound investment opportunities backed by real property across multiple asset classes from single-family homes to office buildings to new developments, and more.

When we work with lenders and investors, we find the deal, manage the acquisition, renovations, and management, so they don’t have to. We work with our lenders and investors on customized approaches to create win-win relationships, and many of them use funds from their IRAs to generate consistently strong returns.

Our Approach

There’s no one size fits all when it comes to real estate investing. That’s why we take a customized approach with each and every investor and lender.

Josh Mentesana


Josh has been involved in real estate and construction project management for over 10 years in Florida and Arizona. Prior to moving to Arizona in 2018, Josh was also licensed in general lines insurance including life, health, and annuity for 5 years in Florida.

When family ties brought him to southern Arizona, Josh recognized the incredible growth potential of the market around him and began fixing and flipping houses. Fixing and flipping turned to fixing and holding and the pursuit of larger development projects. He was also fortunate to serve many wonderful buyers and sellers, and to establish long-standing relationships with multiple investors during that time.

A few years and several millions of dollars in real estate transactions later, Josh decided to open a brokerage with the goal of helping others accomplish their goals and find financial freedom through real estate.

Josh lives in Sonoita, Arizona with his wife and business partner, Kathryn. Josh and Kathryn have fallen in love with the Sonoita/Elgin area with its rolling hills, mountain views, breathtaking sunsets, and of course, incredible vineyards and wineries.

Outside of business, Josh is an accomplished martial artist. He holds a second-degree black belt in Krav Maga (Israeli combat). Josh carries the core values of Krav Maga, courtesy, modesty, integrity, perseverance, self-control, and the indominable spirit in every area of his life. It has been his privilege to train hundreds of adults and children in his nearly 20 years of practice.

Kathryn Mentesana

Acquisitions Manager

Kathryn brings over a decade of marketing, technology, sales, and contracting experience to the brokerage. After graduating with honors from the University of Florida, she began working in digital marketing with a focus on automotive and hotel groups for several years before being drawn to technology for real estate and construction.

That draw led Kathryn to work in software for REITs and serial builders, most notably with e-Builder, Inc., a Trimble Technologies company, and Aurigo Software Inc. Kathryn focused primarily on helping developers, state, and federal government agencies manage multibillion-dollar capital programs with capital planning, project management, right-of-way, materials and lab testing, and asset management software.

Josh and Kathryn believe that their shared passion for construction and real estate is one of the many reasons they were drawn to each other. After a year of dating long-distance, Kathryn moved to Arizona in 2018 where she and Josh were later married. She assisted Josh with strategic real estate acquisitions for 3 years before taking on her role as Acquisitions Manager with Red Tail Real Estate.

Outside of work, Kathryn loves sports and spending time outdoors. She was a fastpitch softball player for over 10 years and played in the winning ASA World Series game in Olympia, WA. She loves to SCUBA dive, although it’s a little difficult in Arizona, so she’s getting much more into hiking and bird watching.
