Area Information

Welcome to the area information section for Arizona and surrounding Paradise Valley areas. When considering what home to buy, the community can be as important a consideration as the real estate itself. This section should help you learn more about our beautiful community and all it has to offer.

Welcome to Arizona! The greater Phoenix area includes over a dozen cities, all linked by miles of freeways and fabulous year-round weather. Phoenix has more than 300 sunny days a year and an average temperature of 74 degrees – an unbeatable combination that has made the area a prime destination for new residents, tourists, business and industry and one of the fastest-growing areas in the nation.

The Valley of the Sun offers just about everything in the way of sports, recreation, arts, culture, shopping, dining and financial opportunities. Phoenix and the surrounding cities play host to major annual sporting events, including the Fiesta Bowl, the FBR (Phoenix) Open, and Spring Training for a number of major league baseball teams, all which draw tourists from across the nation. The 2008 Super Bowl will be held locally, as in 1996, and will draw thousands, boosting the economy even more. All this, plus the beautiful Sonoran Desert, rate Phoenix as a world-class destination.
