Experience the Insight of a local REALTOR®


Whether you are looking to buy or sell real estate, I hope to earn your business by providing you with access to relevant information that assists you in making an educated decision.

Should you share my passion for the community of Carefree and neighboring Cave Creek, nestled in the scenic foothills of the Sonoran Desert, I think you will value the wealth of real estate information assembled within my website.  I primarily serve the Carefree, Cave Creek, and far north Scottsdale areas, but am no stranger to traveling far across the valley for Buyers and Sellers to serve their needs and to strengthen my referral business.  If you are focused in a different area around the greater Phoenix region, please don't hesitate to contact me for real estate information tailored to your specific needs.

If you are a Buyer, you'll find helpful information, links to organizations and resources, and perhaps best of all, a robust set of property search engines to get you started right away.

If you are a Seller, I've provided an introduction to the sales process, a home evaluation request form, and useful links for you to peruse.

I value each and every opportunity to demonstrate my dedication, integrity, and exceptional service, in the buying and selling of real estate.  For personalized assistance, please contact me to set up an appointment for a consultation.

Communities In and Around the Carefree Area

Occasionally I’ll meet folks who refer to Scottsdale as if it’s just a little hamlet – it’s actually an enormous land mass of about 184 square miles.  Maricopa County is about 9,224 square miles in size and larger than four of our country’s states!  Carefree and Cave Creek are certainly much smaller towns by comparison, but one simple fact remains – real estate markets are made up of many smaller communities and neighborhoods.  These present variety and each has its own unique characteristics.  This diversity is something I strive to help my site visitors understand, by assisting them with meaningful information with which they can make sound decisions.

Carefree Arizona

The town of Carefree was founded in the 1950s by K.T. Palmer and Tom Darlington, and incorporated in 1984.  It covers about 8.8 square miles of beautiful Sonoran Desert, and is bordered by the town of Cave Creek to the west, the Tonto National Forest to the north, and the city of Scottsdale to the south and east.  Known for its sundial located in the center of town, and for its whimsical street names, the town of Carefree suggests a leisurely style of life.  Home construction began in the late 1950s and continues through today, but thanks to strict zoning regulations, its architecture blends in with its desert surroundings, and its population density remains low.  While there are custom home sites and horse properties in the outlying areas, the subdivisions closer to the center of town tend to consist of townhouses, patio homes, apartment style flats, and single family detached homes.

Carefree, and its neighbor to the west, Cave Creek, always seem to have some entertaining events in the works.   Check out the Local Quick Links below that touch on the history and future of both communities.  Please take some time to browse, and learn a little about the area.
