Luke McDermott

My name is Luke McDermott and I was the first generation in my family to be born on the west coast. My family came to Arizona from both Boston, MA and Buffalo, NY. I was born in Scottsdale, AZ and was raised in Fountain Hills. I attended Fountain Hills High School where I was recognized as a First Team All Arizona Quarterback. I parlayed that award into a Scholarship to the prestigious Stetson University in Florida. I successfully made a position switch to WR and earned a starting position both my Junior and Senior year. I graduated in 2019 with a degree in Media Studies & Communication. Upon graduating I returned to Arizona to pursue my dream of becoming a top Realtor in Arizona. Over the past two years I have helped both buyers and sellers in numerous transactions, with my highest transaction to date coming in at $1,150,000. I joined 72 Sold in October of 2021 and I hope to continue my dream of becoming one of the best Realtors in the great state of Arizona!

Your first job?

My first job was a humbling experience. It was a summer job in Plymouth MA at a precast cement company. It was very hard labor and helped shape me into the person I am today.

Your perfect day?

My perfect day is starting out with a great workout, followed by watching my beloved Buffalo Bills play!

Favorite vacation spot?

My favorite vacation spot is definitely the east coast. Specifically Plymouth, MA where I spent many great summers throughout my childhood.

Your passions?

My passions have always been sports and business. I grew up in a sports family and played sports all the way up until my college graduation. I feel that sports and competition has molded me into the person I am today. I also bring my competitive drive into the business world which has helped me a lot through the start of my career.

Favorite Book?

Stillness Is The Key, by Ryan Holiday. This book has taught me to remain present and "still" throughout everyday life. I continue to use the tactics from the book to this day.

Favorite Movie?

I don't necessarily have a favorite movie but I am die hard Sopranos Fan! I've watched the series over 5 times through, it never gets old!
