WELCOME TO EMERY LANE
MEET OUR TEAM
Emery Lane is not a place but a feeling.
The name Emery Lane was created by co-founder Chad Klock.
A South Dakota native, Emery is the name of the small town where Chad grew up. It’s a tight-knit, small community where everyone knows each other and relationships are formed to last a lifetime. When trying to decide on a name for their newest venture, it was Chad who suggested Emery Lane Homes, as he wanted the brand to evoke the same honest, small-town feel of where he was raised.
Whether it’s a remodel or new build, Emery Lane creates homes that honor neighborhoods with impeccable craftsmanship that are designed for the lifestyle of the modern family. Which is why we want all our clients to “live life on the lane”.
As a seasoned Realtor and Developer, Chad has been wired into the Phoenix market for close to a decade. With a sharp eye for opportunity and a background in finance and representing home builders, Chad has bought and sold over $100m in single family, multi family and commercial real estate in the previous 4 years.
A South Dakota native and former collegiate basketball player, Chad is always on the go working tirelessly for his clients and looking for the next great project for Emery Lane Homes.
There is nothing more important when selecting a home than the quality of the builder behind it. Richard Cardenas, Co-Founder of Emery Lane brings over 20 years of experience as a General Contractor and Developer who has built ground up or remodeled close to 800 homes across the country. Quality, teamwork and a commitment to his craft have distinguished Richard as one of the top builders in Phoenix.
Richard is a long-time resident of Phoenix and father of four. When he’s not in the field checking on projects, you can find him on the soccer field where he coaches a local Varsity high school team.
Michael joined our Emery Lane Team in March. He has 13 years of experience in the construction industry as a Controller and Project Manager building large commercial/casino projects in the Las Vegas, Denver and San Francisco area.
Before his life in construction, Michael taught Accounting and Statistics at Phoenix College for 15 years and is a Veteran of the United States Army as an Airborne Ranger.
Michael is a fourth generation native Arizonian and a father of three. He is an animal lover and to relax he is an avid golfer and reader of almost any type of book.
Sandra is an seasoned industry veteran, managing operations for several large construction and development companies. Her strengths include strategic planning, development and implementation of systems and processes, steering businesses to a financially bright future. In a nutshell she is the ever important “glue” that holds everything together. From Accounting to Project Management, Sandra that touches everything and steers the Emery Lane ship, keeping it running smoothly and on course from day to day. Her positive attitude and focus on open collaboration is an incredibly valuable asset to the team.

William joined Emery Lane in January 2019, relocating from Ohio after a ten years as a senior project manager and estimator with an outdoor living design and build company in Ohio. William began remodeling houses in his teens and after college began acquiring and renovating his own rental properties. He loves the challenge and satisfaction of bringing historic homes back to life and creating beautiful new living spaces that the next generations can live and flourish in.
