Dezlee loves St. George. Although not a native of St. George, she has lived here for 27 years and has enjoyed everything it has to offer. She took advantage of living close to Dixie State University and recently completed her degree in Communications. Her passion is to use effective communications to help others find what they are seeking in life. She has used this passion while owning and running a business with her husband Clark and working in the medical profession. She loves the challenge of solving problems by finding the right way to communicate. She is excited to be part of the Larkin Group at Keller Williams Realty where personal growth is just as important as business growth.
Alex comes to us by way of Salt Lake City, where she fought the law, as a Paralegal, Administrative Assistant, and Office Manager for seven years, and the law won! Her passion for marketing and advertising took her away from the legal field and straight into marketing and PR where she thrived in all social media platforms, developing strategic market plans, press release writing and distribution and was able to land many guest spotlights on television for her clients. Although thriving in the busy city life, Alex and her husband decided to move to the quaint and sunshiny City of Saint George to plant their roots and feed their passion for the outdoors. With her strong legal background, a few dozen marketing tricks up her sleeve, and her infinite love of helping PEOPLE the transition into Real Estate has been seamless. Alex is a bundle of positivity, upbeat energy, and she won’t skip an opportunity to make you laugh, however, her professionalism, tact, and down to business drive puts her in a category all her own.
Seeking warm-weather sanity, year-round golf and amazing vistas, Jessica escaped the mind-numbing cold of Cody, Wyoming to join us “smart folks” in Utah’s Dixie! To say she is excited to live in beautiful St. George is an understatement! She studied Spanish at Brigham Young University and received a Masters in Education from Montana State. She later taught Spanish and English for ten years in a tiny school district of 140 students. While she loved teaching, she is excited for a new challenge and adventure. In addition to passing her free time traveling, spending time with her husband and daughter, and reading great books, this woman is DOWNRIGHT FUNNY! You’ll get that the second you meet her!
We knew we “had to have her” after just one interview with Larkin Group Director of Operations Jess Hogan! Her life and professional experience are insanely broad after 13 years in Hollywood (yes that Hollywood), 10 years building a massive Utah new construction firm, pressing a rock album with band “Randolph Scott” and a few other high-quality endeavors she landed in St. George, Utah! She’s done radio, is fluent in ASL and holds Utah real estate license and Notary Public designations in addition to being hands-on in the community. Our clients can breathe easy knowing we’ve got the “give it to me, I’ll get it done” person every business needs!
Marlene caught the “Southern Utah” bug way back in 2001 before she started raising a 3 kids and 1 (big husband) kid this place we love to call home! Fascinated with real estate from a young age, Marlene knew she’d eventually feed her family in this industry! Her clients, along with all of us at The Larkin Group, love her undying positivity, work ethic and hunger to help them find the perfect place to call their own. Marlene is so good that we can count on her clients sending 5-star review after every happy closing!

When Avis Rent-a-Car "scouted" Marci, she was on the front end of a local car wash and Avis owners were baffled at how she was asserting herself to do any and everything to make that car wash run smoothly. So good that they stole her away on the spot to run their operation. And then….WE stole her! Marci is so good administratively that she’s done EVERYTHING here at The Larkin Group and knows a Utah real estate contract better than most Brokers!! As Director of the Larkin Group closing department, she’s at her best using incredible detail orientation and a “no-BS” bulldog attitude to get our clients’ home purchases and sales closed. You’ll be glad she’s on your team!

(Talk about a whirl-wind tour!) What we may like best about Michelle has nothing to do with real estate, rather her incredible character and ability to make us BELLY LAUGH with theatrical antics! Our “Zillow.com all-star”, Michelle’s clients ALWAYS give a raving 5-stars!
“Two roads diverged in a wood, and I – I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference.” Early on Robert never took the common path, born in Sandy, UT at 15 he went to a military prep boarding school that gave him a strong foundation in Duty, Honor and Achievement. He graduated with high honors at California State University Fullerton in Political Science and set off to backpack 9 countries in Europe. He met the love of his life at 21 in Southern California and never looked back. After a decade in the restaurant industry the young couple moved to St George to provide an amazing place for their son Robert Jr. to grow up. Community involvement has always been a passion and Real Estate is his vehicle in having a life worth living in safe and beautiful place.
