Arcadia Area

Arcadia sits by the base of Camelback Mountain, its larger green lots, and the uniform top quality homes and schools make this an ideal area to live.

Arcadia was built on former citrus groves,  and is well known to the locals for well-irrigated, mature landscaping.  Several yards prominently feature orange, lemon and grapefruit trees as reminders of the area’s past.

The homes in this area tend to command higher prices due to its location and appeal.  The community boundaries vary depending on who you talk to, we map it out per the City of Phoenix planning department.  Most of the community is located in the City of Phoenix, but the eastern portion is in the City of Scottsdale.  The entire area is in the Scottsdale School District with the impressive Hopi Elementary School.

Laveen

Laveen is a City of Phoenix “urban village” that is a little over 30 square miles.  The area has been very rural in nature with cotton fields and dairies covering most of the area.  Laveen was named for the first Postmaster, Walter E. Laveen in 1918. In the 1990’s Phoenix builders discovered the area and started a building boom that has changed this area into a suburb with new homes.  The area is home to a large park with a 25 acre fishing lake next to a public golf course.  The very large South Mountain Park is on the south side of Laveen and features 16,000 acres of desert with hiking trails and some great views of Phoenix.  Homes in Laveen range from the starter home to some very impressive gated communities in higher elevations with some killer views of the valley

Lower Arcadia

This community is located just south of Arcadia proper, and is considered an up and coming area.  Please note the amount of new home builders in the southern section!  Most of the prices are on average lower than the homes in Arcadia proper.

Midtown Phoenix

Just north of the downtown Phoenix area, lies an extension of downtown along the Central Avenue corridor which I call midtown Phoenix.  Home of the world famous Heard Museum, numerous historic districts, and The Phoenix Art Museum.

Take in a play at the Art Museum, have dinner at many choices of cafes or famous restaurants, and live in luxury or just the average Joe, maybe even take the light rail to ASU or the airport.
