President Stephen Ochoa enlisted right out of high school and served with 1st Marine Combat Engineer Battalion stationed at Camp Pendleton, San Clemente, California. During his time, he served in “Operation Restore Hope” which allowed him to see a different kind of life in Mogadishu, Somalia. He credits the Marines for providing him the skillset to be an effective and dedicated leader.

Upon graduation she became a commissioned officer and began to serve in many ways. Volunteer work is at the foundation; a major project being the work she did at the Arizona Human Society.

We had a blast at the 4th Annual Belfiore Bash & Cornhole Charity Tournament! While we did not make it very far this year, it was a fun day supporting a very worth cause.
Belfiore Real Estate Consulting raised $26,500 for the Care Fund to help provide assistance to families with children being treated for serious illnesses. Last year, during what undoubtedly was one of the toughest periods of their lives, The Care Fund helped keep 122 families in their homes with $352,000 in rent and mortgage aid.
We would also like to say thank you to Jim Belfiore for allowing a moment of silence to honor our late president, John Fortini. ... See MoreSee Less
Please read the below statement by our Vice President Stephen Ochoa.To our dearest Friends and Colleagues,
It pains me to announce, John Robert Fortini passed away Thursday morning at 6:15 am with his amazing wife Deborah at his side. As many of you know, John was diagnosed with Prostate Cancer two months before his 40th birthday and had been traveling to Houston’s MD Anderson Cancer Center for the last several years. At the time of the diagnosis, the doctors gave him a year and a half to live. For those of you who knew John well, he always found a way to figure out the impossible and beat the odds. John successfully lived another SEVEN great years. Just recently, he was undergoing additional treatments to help fight the cancer, and allow his body to heal. Unfortunately, John’s body did not heal and the cancer continued to spread, ultimately taking his life. John was able to return to his home for one final day to spend quality time in his garden, eating oranges from his tree.
Fortini, as many of us called him, was an amazing guy who had a big appetite for life, and even a bigger heart, if you were lucky enough to break through the tough Italian façade.
We will keep everyone posted on services, in the event you would like to attend.
With its unique blend of entertainment, shopping, and outdoor fun, Peoria’s popularity has been skyrocketing over the past few years and Valley homebuilders are working to keep up with demand. Shea ...
It is with exceptional honor to announce that John Fortini has been named as an AZ BIG Media Leader for 2019! His appointment as an industry leader is showcased in the real estate section of the AZ Business Leaders magazine (page 224), which was just mailed out by the publisher for distribution last week. Congratulations John!!! . . .
