Meet Rick Wesselhoff
Your Sedona Real Estate Agent
Rick has been a real estate agent in the Sedona area for more than 13 years. His expertise in advertising and online marketing helps position him as one of the top agents in Sedona. Rick’s versatile marketing approach incorporates traditional print advertising and tech savvy programs which set him apart from every other agent in Sedona.
Rick is an active agent in a town that thrives on the outdoors and healthy living. His wife Jennifer is the President/CEO of the Sedona Chamber of Commerce. Life for them is always busy, but they are sure to take time out for hiking, exploring, and enjoying the red rock vistas from remote points that most people only see in photographs.
Together they also realize the importance of giving back to the community that they love. When they moved to Sedona 14 years ago, they started volunteer work with several organizations including: Meals on Wheels, Big Brothers/ Big Sisters, Northern Arizona Duck Race benefiting the Sedona Boys and Girls Clubs, Chamber of Commerce Ambassadors and Visitor Center Volunteers, Rotary Club of Sedona Red Rocks, Sedona Oktoberfest, and the Sedona Dog Park, just to name a few. One of Rick’s most notable accomplishments includes the creation of the Sedona Dog Park.
Ali, the family dog, was the inspiration for the Sedona Dog Park. This 4-year long project was finally completed in 2007. Rick and co-founder John Lupo started a non-profit organization, raised funds, obtained city approval and built an off-leash park to be used by all dog owners in Sedona. It’s one of the country’s best dog parks – just ask anyone there! If you’re interested in getting involved, email Rick or visit the Sedona Dog Park website.
Rick was raised in Chicago and obtained a degree in Advertising at the University of Illinois in 1992. He worked for 7 years in sales and marketing for an adventure sports company in Interlaken, Switzerland. Working knowledge of French and German hasn’t helped much in Sedona, but his experience and problem-solving abilities are an asset in the real estate field.
Before moving to Sedona, Rick and Jennifer explored exotic destinations such as: China, Japan, Thailand, Fiji, Nepal, New Zealand, Australia, Korea, Saipan, Morocco, Costa Rica, Mexico, and most of the countries in Europe. After working and traveling all over the globe he and Jennifer settled in Sedona. They still take time to travel every year and regardless of the destination they look forward to returning to their favorite place on earth…Sedona.
When Rick isn’t working he usually spends time trail running, mountain biking, or exploring the wilderness surrounding Sedona. Every February, Rick can be found running the Sedona Marathon or snowboarding on long winter weekends in Colorado, Utah or Whistler BC.
