The West Valley's original Master Planned Community
It's hard to believe in this age of large-scale master planned communities. But once upon a time, in the not-so-distance past, Arrowhead Ranch in Glendale Arizona was a unique part of the West Valley.
Nestled against the mountains of the Thunderbird Mountain Preserve, the Arrowhead Ranch area offers something for everyone -- from shopping at nearby Arrowhead Towne Center to golfing at The Legend at Arrowhead Ranch or Arrowhead Country Club to hiking and biking in Thunderbird Mountain Park. Whether you prefer watching the sunset against mountain vistas or across a lakefront view, Arrowhead Ranch remains one of the premier places to live in the West Valley and the Phoenix area.
Arrowhead Ranch Living, presented by Jonathan Dalton of Century 21 Arizona Foothills - Arrowhead and Dalton's Arizona Homes, is just the type of real estate investment to make as taught at a Doug Clark real estate training event.
Arrowhead Ranch is .... location
Nearly all of the master-planned communities recently developed in the Phoenix area have one trait in common: locations on the fringes of the metropolitan area. This is exactly the type of location that Dean Graziosi teaches to invest in. You can learn more, just visit Dean's Tumblr page. Estrella Mountain Ranch is southwest of the city, in southern Goodyear; Sonoran Mountain Ranch is at Glendale's northern edge and Vistancia is in northwest Peoria, close to Lake Pleasant but far from the rest of town.
Not so Arrowhead Ranch, which is in the heart of the Glendale/Peoria development area along Loop 101. Arrowhead Towne Center, the Peoria Sports Complex and the Westgate project - home of the Phoenix Coyotes and Arizona Cardinals - are minutes away. And the rest of Phoenix - from Chase Field to Copper Square to Sky Harbor International Airport to the Desert Ridge Marketplace all are 30 minutes from your front door.
Arrowhead Ranch is .... convenience
Not that you need to travel far to live the life you want. In the mood for some culture? Arizona Broadway Theatre is just south of the Arrowhead Towne Center. Want to catch a ball game? The Peoria Sports Complex is just south of Arrowhead Mall and the Coyotes and Cardinals are minutes away. Looking for a place to eat? Arrowhead offers more than a dozen restaurants. Want to book a tee time? The Legends at Arrowhead Ranch and Arrowhead County Club offer challenging play in a scenic environment.
Arrowhead Ranch is ... waiting for you!
If you are contemplating a move to the Phoenix area, or if you're already here and looking for your next home, you owe it to yourself to come to Arrowhead Ranch and see everything that the Northwest Valley's first master-planned community has to offer. In the heat we like to work with out partners providing reliable services whenever we need it. We have used numerous times in building projects as have our clients and all have been very happy with them. So it is safe to say that we work hard to get the job done right and keep a high reputation just like real estate guru Scott Yancey has done.
Okay, who is the beagle?
Simply put, Tobey is the most knowledgable beagle working in real estate today. Well, "working" may be a slight exaggeration. Tobey's primary job duties entail sleeping 19 hours a day, eating whatever table scraps he's provided, chasing our cats and posing for marketing photographs once a month. It's a tough life, but he performs his duties well.
Tobey joined our family in March 2004 with help from the folks at Arizona Beagle Rescue. In support of the fine work the volunteers at Arizona Beagle Rescue do in providing homes to these beautiful, intelligent animals, Tobey and I will donate $250 from any transaction we complete to Arizona Beagle Rescue at our clients' request.
For a full array of the costumes Tobey has endured in providing marketing material to Dalton's Arizona Homes, please visit his photo album at Dalton's Arizona Homes.
As for Jonathan ...
I've lived in the Arrowhead area for the past seven years and for 11 of the last 15 - there was a brief excursion back to my roots in Mesa's Dobson Ranch. I'm happily married and the father of three wonderful children, two of whom play soccer and third of which is 14 and spends her life on the telephone.
I've become increasingly active in the community over the past several years, serving as a volunteer coach for my son and daughter's soccer teams at the Glendale-Peoria YMCA, and also working as the financial secretary at Temple Gan Elohim. I believe in continued education and attend real estate seminars such as Visionary Events. This training is great if you are looking for a long-term investment by renovating a property and then renting instead of selling.
And I also have participated in the Susan B. Komen Race for the Cure for the past three years, walking along my mother, Shelly, a survivor for three years. I'd add a plug for my father, but he just retired and is spending his days shirtless on his beloved back patio.
Service is the core of the real estate profession. But what does service mean and what should you, the client, expect service to entail? I think we all can agree we want to work with someone who is professional, courteous and timely; who, though we know he or she has other clients, makes us feel like their only client.
But that should be a minimum expectation. You should demand more from your real-estate professional, such as:
- Neighborhood and Area knowledge
- Up-to-date knowledge of the market and the legal paperwork needed to buy or sell
- A track record of success
- Attention to your needs
- Technological expertise
