Scottsdale-based ORION Investment Real Estate is proud to announce that Judi Butterworth joined the firm as Senior Vice President in February.

Ms. Butterworth has been leasing and selling shopping centers for more than 35 years. Consistently a top producer, she has closed over half a billion dollars in transactions, inclusive of big box re-leases, shopping center sales, outparcel sales, and tenant/landlord representation leases, according to a press release. She consults with owners of retail properties to maximize the value of their assets, and creates virtual leasing and sales teams to better serve owners in general.

“We are fortunate to have Judi as part of our growing retail leasing team.  There are few agents in the southwest who can boast the success that Judi has achieved,” stated Ari Spiro, ORION’s president, in the release.  “She has an unmatched reputation for both her character and as an industry leader.”

Ms. Butterworth has had copious achievements over the years. Her most notable industry awards include: 2015 Most Influential Women in the Southwest – Real Estate Forum Magazine; CoStar Power Broker, multiple years; People to Know in Commercial Real Estate – AZRE Magazine, multiple years; and 2014 Most Influential Women in Commercial Real Estate – AZRE Magazine.

“Judi’s passion for the commercial real estate business is contagious! We’re excited to add her energy and breadth of experience to the ORION team,” stated Sean Stutzman, principal at ORION, in the release.

Ms. Butterworth moved to ORION to continue selling and leasing shopping centers.

“ORION is building a retail leasing platform to maximize shopping center values through leasing. We already have a superior shopping center sales platform, so, combining the two capabilities provides the very best customer service possible for retail owners,” Ms. Butterworth stated in the release.

ORION is located in Scottsdale at 7135 E. Camelback Road suite 202.
