In the very heart of what has been recognized as the most beautiful locations in America lies a community in West Sedona known as "the Aerie,” a mere 1.5 hours from Phoenix, AZ. The Aerie community consists of approximately 100-acres between Doe and Cockscomb mountains with awe-inspiring surroundings, including an abundance of national forest. Residents at the Aerie enjoy panoramic views of Capital butte, Thunder Mountain, and Boynton Canyon, with long-distance views of legendary Cathedral Rock to the south, and the twinkling nighttime lights of the historic town of Jerome to the west. For buyers looking to relocate to Sedona, it is hard for other communities to match what the Aerie has to offer! 

The beauty of The Aerie, besides the obvious, jaw-dropping scenery, is that its phases are being developed gradually and with great discernment. No retail space, no sprawling golf course and

no rows of cookie-cutter construction that voraciously consume the landscape seemingly overnight. 

It’s the kind of place where one could imagine legends coming to life, Especially on an overcast day when dramatic clouds crown the snow-capped Mogollon Rim, and fog floats like ghost ships between the mythic formations of the Red Rock/Secret Mountain Wilderness. Nothing but an amphi- theater of nature is visible from every lot in this 178-acre luxury neighborhood, and the view is not expected to change much after its limited number of homes are completed — or ever, for that matter.  


This extraordinary three (3) bedroom, five (5) bathroom residence built in 2012 offers 6,302 total square footage -  Main residence: 5,722 SqFt and Guest Casita: 580 SqFt.  The home includes exceptional outdoor living spaces inspired by Sedona’s landscape, including a pool lounge with a negative edge infinity pool and spa, water feature and fire elements.

 Ed and Jeanette are the BEST realtors in Sedona! My experience from start to finish was incredibly easy, efficient and pleasurable. I walked into the process with specific desires and Ed and Jeanette both tirelessly met me with patience and an invaluable knowledge of the Sedona market. They took  care of EVERYTHING and reminded me of every appointment and walked me through the entire purchasing process to ensure I was taken care of. They are a dynamic team and each provide very valuable assets to assist the buyer in making the best possible decision. It's really apparent that they deeply love what they do and extend that to their clients. I am so incredibly grateful for their guidance and expertise. 

- K. Mark, Sedona 

Ed and Jeanette not only are experts in the market and industry, but they are amazing people.  They helped us and made us feel so comfortable.  We were very lucky to have met them and would not hesitate to use their services again and recommend that our family and friends do as well.
- A.Kabat, Cleveland, OH & Sedona, AZ

Oh how I have needed "the gang of three" - Jeanette, Ed and Lindsey to be here in Texas when I purchased my home to protect me and ensure I am doing the right thing.. I am so thankful I had Ed, Jeannette and Lindsey to take care of the Sedona property. Jeanette staged my home a day after we moved out and it sold in less than a week.  We greatly appreciated this amazing team, we can assure you.  I had listed my home with another Realtor and when it didn't sale, I called Ed and Jeanette and was so happy I did.  They were so responsive.  If you're looking for the #1 Team to sell your Sedona home, we give this team an A++!

- Irvin A. Texas  

Ed & Jeanette are more than professionals, they go way above and beyond to help in any way they can. They made the entire process of selling our home as stress free as they possibly could, we could not be more grateful. You couldn't have a better team working for you, whether you are buying or selling a home.      
- C. Bingham, Seattle, WA

  Ed and Jeanette are an amazing team! Highly professional, hardworking, ethical and they truly care about their clients. I have used them on numerous properties and I am never disappointed. I have had mediocre service with other agents and would say with 100% confidence that they are the best in town. If you want agents who will work hard and actively market your property not just list it, then I suggest you contact them!

 Looking for a real estate team that offers all the skill, experience, technical savvy, and hands-on tenacity that it takes to sell a special property in Sedona? Look no further. Ed Pennington and partner Jeanette Sauer from Russ Lyon/Sotheby’s are your dream team! They started with an honest assessment of the extensive grounds (5.5 acres) as they got mud on their boots traversing every corner. Ed (along with my contractor and a subcontractor with a backhoe) plowed out a new path down to the perfect spot on Oak Creek, a stretch with a gently sloping bank, and a secluded, 7-foot-deep swimming hole. How do we know it was 7 feet deep? Ed had his 6-foot tall brother walk out into the middle of it and raise his arms above his head! Both Ed and Jeanette “got” the value of the house and grounds. Their passion for the property’s unique beauty and location (at the foot of Cathedral Rock) was contagious (and caught by the buyers the first week the property was on the market). Although the place was all but sold with the first listing Jeanette posted on Facebook, she and Ed promised me they’d find back-up buyers just in case. Jeanette was out at the house at 6am with her own furniture to stage the house and patios for the photographer. The resulting video (set to Kenny G-esque music) would make anyone fall in love with the property. Exquisite! Two other areas where this dream team excelled:  (1) I mentioned tenacity? Navigating the rules and regulations, forms and documentation, and seemingly endless requirements to sell property in Sedona takes a team that’s not only knowledgeable, but also that follows the most efficient sequence and bird-dogs every step in the process from the buyers’ first offer to the title company’s final sign-off. Jeanette did all of that like a real pro plus keeping me informed at every juncture. And (2) both Jeanette and Ed honored my request that the buyers had to be people who appreciated the special beauty of the place and felt the love that I’d invested in preparing the property for them. Here again, they exceeded my expectations. The wonderful new owners are actually getting married in the house! I couldn’t ask for more love than that! In short, Ed and Jeanette listen to your goals (price, and less tangible requests) and they know what it takes to sell in Sedona. They are fun to work with and really care about making you (and the buyers) happy! They aren’t happy until you’re happy. Let’s just say I’m smiling as I write this.

 Ed and Jeanette represented the seller of a spec home under construction that we purchased way before completion, making several changes. We were out-of-town and couldn't be there on a daily basis. Ed WAS there, and acted as intermediary between the seller and us. He answered our emails and phone calls immediately. He told us what was going on and acted as our advisor. If it wasn't for him, the deal would never have gone through because the builder worked for the seller. We can't say enough about him, and he and Jeanette have now become good friends!    

- J.Hendler, Scottsdale and Sedona, AZ

I cannot begin to tell you how grateful we are to have met Jeanette Sauer. From our first conversation to the close of our Flagstaff townhouse, the entire process was easier than deciding what to make for dinner…and I'm not exaggerating. We found Jeanette through a referral (Thank you, Todd!), and when I looked at her listings I wasn't sure she would be interested in listing our little place. Boy was I wrong! She didn't skimp on anything, from the professional photographer, marketing materials, and most importantly her excellent service-it was all top notch. She was getting calls on our place before it was officially on the market because of her dedication to us. I could go on and on about the quality of service Jeanette provided, but why don't you just find out for yourself! I promise she will not disappoint!     

- L.Alia, Scottsdale and Flagstaff, AZ

True professionalism and care for your needs. We were given helpful information in listing the home and in selling it. We relisted with them because of their diligence and knowledge in the current market. Ed is very reliable and we trusted him. When Jeanette came on board, she wowed us with her enthusiasm and marketing abilities. We continue a valued friendship with these fine people.      

- Nancy W., New York, NY & Sedona, AZ

Ed and Jeanette spent many hours with us over several trips to visit potential houses and surrounding areas. They knew the locales and were able to provide information to help us make an informed decision. Attention, follow through, and after-purchase assistance were excellent. We will certainly recommend them to others we know.      -K & G.Barclay, Sedona AZ

  I have sold a number of homes, some with great difficulty and some with ease and Ed Pennington and Jeanette Sauer exceeded every expectation. seller! I wanted the BEST agents in Northern Arizona and I got the #1 Team! Thank you both for handling this home with such care and professionalism...We appreciate everything you both did for us!
- Wayne S., Florida 

Ed and Jeanette found us a place in one day and made the process so easy for us. In addition, they went above and beyond realtor duties to help us with other items. We work with a lot of realtors and this team are a "10" on a scale of 1 to 10. 

- Linda and Steve N., Paradise Valley & Sedona, AZ

As an owner of a real estate company whose customers are clients of Ed's, I can tell you that Ed's clients close on their transactions and are happy to have had Ed as their Realtor - whether they were the buyer or the seller. Ed brings a diverse and successful career to the relationships he has with his clientele. Ed was the most communicative of any of the other 3 top agents we interviewed.  His team of professionals provided exemplary service. Ed knows his market and how to close the deal when the transaction got a little tough - equating to happy clientele transaction after transaction.    
- Scott A - Denver, CO

Dealing with Ed as my agent could not have been better.  His expertise and knowledge about the Sedona market is just great. It was a pleasure working with him and his team throughout the entire process of listing and selling my home. Five-star rating for sure. Would definitely recommend Ed Pennington!  
- Brian & Anne C., CA

Ed Pennington has been my realtor for 12 years. I have bought two homes and sold another with his guidance. He and his team are the best! One major advantage of buying with Ed, is his background in residential construction and development. I've worked with several good realtors over the years but the expertise that Ed brings to the table makes him a GREAT realtor. Don't buy a home without him....I certainly won't!
