JUST LISTED! – Scottsdale Patio Home in Pleasant Run – Backs To Greenbelt

2 Bedrooms + 2 Baths + McCormick Ranch Home

Light and bright. Contemporary lines.

In addition to the gorgeous greenbelt and the great floor plan, one of the best features of this home is the neighborhood. You have the community heated pools, heated spas and tennis courts and then you have the gorgeous Scottsdale walking/biking path that runs along the McCormick Ranch golf course and along a cottonwood-lined Lake Marguerite. Notice that west of McCormick Ranch is Paradise Valley which is the most expensive zip code in metro Phoenix. The resorts along Scottsdale Road will give you easy access to luxury amenities — you won’t have to be on vacation anymore to live a resort lifestyle.

McCormick Ranch median sold price $162 per square foot

I spent several hours over the last week checking out home prices in McCormick Ranch now that we have data for all of 2011.

I sliced and diced the data a lot of ways and I think the most interesting thing to remember is that the median price for “normal” (not bank-owned, not short sales) home sales in McCormick Ranch has been flat for 5 quarters, since autumn 2010, at around $162 per square foot.

Is this the bottom? It could be. I hope it is.

Dentist Wanted

I’m looking for a good dentist you would recommend that is located in the general McCormick Ranch area.

My current dentist is fine but I’m starting to feel like a mark, like she’s doing things that don’t really need to be done.

Please email your recommended dentist to me at

Thank You!

ADDED: I just went through Angie’s List and picked out 4 dentists in the area that had really good reviews. I would still love to know if you have a great dentist you would recommend. Hopefully, I’ll be able to find one who takes my dental insurance, Delta Dental.


Review – The Spotted Donkey Cantina

Liz and I decided to try out The Spotted Donkey Cantina in McCormick Ranch on the recommendation of Alexandra Duemer of McCormick Ranch Lifestyle magazine.

I like the ambiance a lot.  Some contempoary lines but friendly look.  We’re on the patio and it nice, not too crowded and the music isn’t too loud.  We can talk… as soon as I take a break from writing this review.

Great. After a little chatting the food quickly arrived. The $14 chimichanga is not your traditional chimi. It was served cut in half and standing on its ends! The flavor is very nice but a little too smoky flavored for my taste.

The cerviche was also good.

Service was GREAT! Nice ambiance. A great place to hang out.
