SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. – Here at My Home Group we understand the importance of strategic partnerships; that is why we believe when growing your business you must align with the best. MHG partners with many of the top-leading service providers in the country, in an effort to help its agents run epic businesses. We are proud of our Power Partners and we love to showcase their abilities to our agents. In this feature, we are highlighting My Home Group Power Partner, Muscular Moving Men, and their VP of Marketing, Jennifer Villalobos and Co-Owner, Justin Hodge.

Muscular Moving Men was founded in 2008 by Phoenix, Arizona natives, Hodge and his partner, Josh Jurhill. The pair were the original Muscular Moving Men, on a mission. After advertising on Craigslist and growing their business, the team began to grow more and more, offering various moving services such as packing, unpacking, loading, unloading, storage, extended storage and support for agents and clients. Now, 12 years later the partners have done roughly 22,000 moves as one of the top moving companies in Arizona. 

“It has been three years or so since Mark (Hutchins), Jereme (Kleven)  and I came together. I have a great friendship with those guys and I have a lot of respect for what they have done. They were just a couple guys from Chaparral High School and my partner, Josh and I were at Saguaro High School which was a rival school. But, it’s been three or so years now we have been a partner. We have a lot of respect for what My Home Group has been able to do and we have the same values and culture that they bring and in line with what we believe in. They have grown and we are so excited to be a part of that,” Hodge said. 

Muscular Moving Men (MMM) has always prided themselves on the customer experience and how they build and maintain relationships with real estate agents and their clients. For Villalobos, providing outstanding service and lending her expert knowledge to help MHG agents grow their business is just one of the reasons she loves the partnership with MHG!

“For me it is building genuine relationships with the realtors that are a part of My Home Group. To see someone start as a new realtor and me being here for a year and a half, I see them develop their network and everything they are achieving. It’s really exciting, and that’s one of my favorite things about being a Power Partner of My Home Group”, she said.

Going above and beyond to provide the best service is something MHG looks for when bringing on a partner. Buying and selling a house can be extremely stressful for clients, it is the realtors job to make the transition as smooth as possible. That’s why MHG has partnerships with companies like MMM who are familiar with the brokerage and have had years of industry experience. 

“Real estate, buying and selling transactions and the people that are sort of going through this emotional roller coaster. It’s crazy to see. It’s not like they are buying some kind of product online and you have this brief interaction with them then it’s over. We are literally in the trenches with them, we’re working with the agents, we’re working with the clients. They have these situations where they could be upsizing to the home of their dreams or downsizing potentially. You have to be empathetic to that. There are so many moving parts that revolve around the process and we’re happy to support the clients and be a part of the team at My Home Group,” the owner said. 

These partnerships are put in place to aid agents and provide them with the necessary tools to help them achieve business growth and help the clients transition to their home seamlessly with a smile on their face! With MHG and MMM’s similar company values, it has created a great partnership and MHG encourages agents to use outstanding services such as theirs. 

“Justin and Josh have done a really good job of making sure that everyone that goes through our doors feels very welcome and a part of a family. That’s what really differentiated us within the business and why we can continue to succeed and continue to have long term, tenured employees as well,” said Villalobos.

There’s no question that MHG partners are the best in the business and MMM is nothing short of that. Once an agent has joined My Home Group, they receive best-in-class treatment as the brokerage and its Power Partners work to serve them and help them grow epic and successful businesses.
