Ericka Martinez Hirons, Sr. Loan Originator
Ericka began her career in the mortgage industry at the young age of 19. She began by assisting a top producer and quickly worked her way up the ladder. The extensive knowledge she has acquired throughout the years has given her the ability to craft solutions to complex situations and specialize in creative financing. Ericka has never met a challenge that she didn’t like. But most of all, she loves building a genuine relationship with each and every client. It fills her heart with joy knowing that she has had a hand in helping a family achieve their dream, even against great odds. In Ericka’s spare time, she enjoys hosting gatherings at “Casa Hirons” with her amazing husband, Josh, and their son, Julian, and daughter, Mila. She enjoys creating menus and taking items from her vegetable garden in order to create a fantastic meal for loved ones.
Jessica Martinez Emes, Sr. Loan Originator
Jessica is a gatherer of people. She seeks the best in others and radiates positive energy to which even strangers are drawn. Most will tell you that by the end of their experience, they feel more like extended family than a client. Jessica has 16 years’ collective experience in the financial industry, the last seven of which have been dedicated to mastering the art of mortgage lending. It was through this experience that she realized the critical importance of relationships. In a world where everything is done online, genuine connections are more important than ever. Off the clock, Jessica is usually whipping up something delicious, adding fun flair to her authentic Mexican family recipes. She and her husband, Ron, are also fond of the golf course and spending quality time with their son, Alexander, and pup, Bella.
Jazel Martinez, Business Development & Marketing
Jazel began her career in the mortgage industry eight years ago. Long before that, she fell in love with helping people. Her value for family and friends stems from humble beginnings, and the sense of community she adopted from growing up in a small border town.
Her experience as a Licensed Loan Coordinator has helped her understand both sides of the business, and ensure that every client is empowered with the knowledge. Jazel brings a high level of integrity, creativity, and detail to everything she does. Whether it’s growing your business, or becoming more involved in the community, Jazel is passionate about helping others reach their highest potential. By supporting the 3M Group and referral partners to be the best they can be, she ensures clients are receiving the concierge service they deserve.
Jazel is also a member of the Valley of the Sun Active 2030 Club (a non-profit organization here in the Valley), which raises money for local children’s charities year-round.
One of her passions is interior design and decorating the house that she shares with her fiancé Jeremy, and their rescue dog Chug. Feel free to ask her for tips on the best spots to shop, and furnish your new home!
Leah McGregor, Licensed loan Coordinator
Leah is the organizational backbone of our team and honorary fourth “M” of the 3M Group. She joined the mortgage industry in 2016, and currently oversees the loan process and all builder accounts. Securing the place you will call “home” is the biggest investment most will make. That is why to her, the mortgage process is more than a transaction – it is a means to establish a firm foundation in life.
Leah enjoys providing 3M Group clients with the clarification they need to feel comfortable and confident each step of the way. In some cases, it is important to see that borrowers are given a second chance at purchasing their dream home. Leah believes that the key to true happiness – whether at work or at home – lies in surrounding yourself with good people. Leah says that she feels fortunate to work with people like that every single day.
Leah is actively involved in CrossFit, and always teaching us something new about nutrition. In her spare time, Leah can be found exploring Arizona’s outdoors with her husband Taylor and their two dogs, Zona and Tucker. In July 2019 they will welcome their first son Mason Scott.
