Libby Cohen is an Arizona native who grew up in the Arcadia neighborhood of Phoenix and attended the University of Arizona where she studied Art History and was a member of the cheer team. Upon returning to Phoenix, Libby worked as a legal secretary specializing in real estate law. She went on to work as a representative for Westlaw, a division of West Publishing, where she was named regional account representative of the year on multiple occasions. Ever a lover of all things domestic, Libby attended the Scottsdale Culinary Institute as a gift to herself for her 40th birthday. After completing the two-year program, she worked for Carolyn Ellis at Arcadia Farms, Scottsdale’s answer to Barefoot Contessa. In 2005, Libby chaired the Phoenix Heart Ball adding to a list of chairmanships including, the Xavier Scholarship Luncheon, Arizona Kidney Foundation Dancing with the Stars, Southwest Center HIV Night for Life, and the Arizona Costume Institute Holiday Luncheon.
Libby’s career in Real Estate began in 2006. Since that time, she has sold hundreds of millions of dollars in residential real estate and continues to hone her craft. A skilled listing agent with an acute understanding of market trends, Libby knows what it takes to prepare a home for listing, and the importance of professional representation through the close of escrow and beyond. Equally important to her practice is working with buyers. She has represented professional athletes and celebrities, CEOs of Fortune 500 companies, first-time home buyers, and transplants to The Valley of the Sun from all over the country. Libby feels that being able to connect her clients to her community in a meaningful way whether it be an introduction to schools and clubs; or simply sharing her knowledge of hiking trails, great restaurants, or Arizona history is what makes her nearly 60 years in Phoenix a valuable attribute to empower her clients.
An avid runner, gardener, cook, and volunteer, Libby enjoys everything about the casual, welcoming Arizona lifestyle. She is a Master Gardener and a volunteer in the school garden program at Maryland Elementary School.
