Scottsdale Urban Living


Recently I sold a client a home in The Plaza Lofts at Kierland.  Below she shares her experience:

“I’ve lived in Scottsdale for nearly 20 years and have owned single family homes for most of that period.  My fiance and I absolutely love the urban lifestyle.  Business takes us out of state a lot of the time and we never have to worry about our home in Scottsdale.  The concierge is there to check on our home, run water, etc. in our absence.

The HOA’s are not for the faint of heart.  They can run several 100 dollars a month but for us this simply offsets the money previously spent on pool maintenance, landscaping, external home maintenance, etc.  In addition to a concierge, we have a wonderful onsite workout facility, pool area, and outdoor and indoor areas that we can use to entertain family, friends, clients, etc.

We generally enjoy the same level of privacy that we had in a single family home but we also have the opportunity to enjoy exclusive events put on by The Plaza Lofts if we want to get to know the other residents.

I have been asked if I shop more living in the middle of Kierland Commons.  I don’t shop more, I just shop smarter.  I am not in a rush to buy anything because everything is so accessible.

When my fiance flies in on a Friday night we can simply walk to one of the neighborhood restaurants.  We do not have to worry about driving if we have a glass a wine.  What a way to decompress after a hectic week!

There are limitations with urban living.  Obviously you cannot work on your car in the garage.  There are guidelines on window coverings, lawn furniture, grills, umbrellas, etc.  You are also limited to two small dogs.

Urban living is the perfect lifestyle for us.  Thank you James for finding us a wonderful home!”
