At the age of 19, Spencer Caldwell accepted a 2-year mission calling for his church, serving the people of Mississippi and Louisiana. During this journey, he learned that he loved working with people. After completing his mission, Spencer was on his way to a career in dentistry when his attention was diverted to the immediate opportunities and limitless potential of real estate in his home state of Arizona.
He took a break from dental school during his fourth year at Arizona State University to observe successful real estate mentors across the U.S., and never looked back. Within a year, Spencer purchased 10 investment homes and launched a profitable career, buying and selling investment properties at auction. He’d found his passion.
In 2007, Spencer and his business partner Jacob Ash founded Gentry Real Estate Group and Gentry BuyLowAZ, a trustee auction bidding service, both headquartered in Mesa. Helping thousands of real estate investors and first-time homebuyers purchase investment properties, the pair sold more than $1 billion in real estate holdings.
Not bad for a kid from Snowflake, Arizona—named after Spencer’s third great-grandpa—where he grew up on his family’s pig farm.
Spencer’s passion for real estate is at the heart of his success. Today, Gentry Real Estate Group and its BuyLowAZteam subsidiary offers Trustee auction bidding services, and specialize in new and residential home sales, house fixing and flipping opportunities, resales, land and lots, investors, and relocations.
Spencer and his wife Alisa Wares have four children—Ethan (15), Ellee (12), Weston (9), and Wyatt (6). His real estate career allows Spencer the flexibility to spend time with his family—at least some weekends!
