Anthem - A planned suburb 34 miles north of downtown Phoenix that opened in 1998. Featuring sweeping mountain vistas, golf, hiking and other recreational opportunities, Anthem has been described as one of the best places to live in Arizona by Phoenix Magazine and the best place to raise a family.


Desert Hills - Offers a peaceful tranquility that simply cannot be found in the city. It is close enough to Phoenix to have the needed amenities of a big city but it is still far enough that you can sit on your property and hear the coyotes and other forms of local wildlife. This is one of the reasons the area is becoming so popular. It has the location and comfort to offer the best of both worlds to all the residents.


New River - Named after the seasonal wash of the same name, part of the Agua Fria River system which drains into the Salt River. It was founded by Lord Darrell Duppa in 1868 as a stagecoach stop.


Paradise Valley - During the late 1800’s, cattle grazed in the area surrounded by the McDowell Mountains to the east and Camelback Mountain to the south. In the 1880’s, the Rio Verde Canal Company turned this open grazing area into irrigated farmland. In 1889, the Rio Verde Canal Company sent three surveyors to this area who were so taken by the beauty and tranquility of the desert landscape that they named this area Paradise Valley.


Phoenix - The capital and the most populous city of Arizona and the county seat of Maricopa County. It was incorporated as a city on February 25, 1881. Its physical location is along the banks of the normally dry Salt River.
