John Schultz was born on Long Island NY and moved to AZ with his mother, father and two sisters in 1973. He went to ASU, starting in their pre-professional Architecture school, thinking that he wanted a career in design. He decided his passion was in building and design so he received his degree in Business with the intent of starting his own custom home building company. After working for another home builder for a few years John started Schultz Development corp. in 1988.
John’s wife Denise worked for the company for over 10 years, as the company was growing. John’s father Arne was also a superintendent for over 20 years and they enjoyed working side by side every day.
John and Denise enjoy spending time with their horses and going on trail rides most weekends. In the summer they spend the weekends at their cabin near Flagstaff with the horses stabled close by. John also plays golf when time allows and he enjoys snow skiing and traveling.
