Steve Ticknor DirectorI was born and raised in the Portland, Oregon area and lived there for my whole life prior to moving to Lake Havasu. I was active in Boy Scouts during high school and obtained my Eagle Scout award.
I attended Oregon State University for two years then had the opportunity at 20 years old to run my own newspaper dealership which I did for about 16 years. After that I decided to get into real estate where I began as a solo agent, eventually hired my mother as my full time assistant, and then grew to having my own team.
 I spent a full year managing a brokerage of about 50 agents, then started my own real estate company with a partner the last year before moving to Havasu. My wife Lynne and I began planning our move a couple of years before we actually did and we set up a Sunstone Realty Professionals in Lake Havasu with her father Bob. We’ve grown into a top 10 real estate team in Lake Havasu in just 2 years and have grown the office to include a full time office manager and a buyer agent.
In addition to my work in real estate, I’ve owned several rental properties over the years and currently own a motel on the Oregon coast, a laundromat and a convenience store/gas station here in Lake Havasu. I am active in the Lake Havasu City Rotary Club and am currently Vice President. In our spare time, my wife and I enjoy time on the lake, riding our RZR in the desert, and walking our miniature dachshunds Benjamin and Daisy.
