Scottsdale was first named Orangedale, for 1880’s founder Winfield Scott’s orange groves. And, blooming backyard citrus trees still cast a potent scent over our magical Sonoran Desert oasis in spring.
Springtime also means baseball! Scottsdale hosts lots of attractions to keep you entertained. Or, refuges to relax you. We’re proudly one of the premier Golf meccas, par excellence — in the world ! You’ll find the perfect mode and place for your every mood.

We have a stellar city to visit and call home. What’s your lifestyle? An urban locale with a ranch-style abode? We have lots of those, designed with you in mind. And, we raise landscaping and maintenance to a fine art.
Maybe high-rise living is your fashion? How about golf course or mountain views? Our cityscapes dazzle from every balcony, mountaintop, and lake-front or quiet neighborhood home.
Perhaps an upscaled vintage house suits you? Renewing the charms of past eras with bright, modern facades, is making way for the influx of new inhabitants — eager to discover its landmarks and trendy, new hotspots.
