The Valley of the Sun

Why move to the Scottsdale/Phoenix Metro Area?

The Phoenix Metropolitan area is well known as the "Valley of the Sun". It includes Scottsdale, Phoenix, as well as multiple suburban communities, which are all an easy drive to our facility. Each suburb has its own charm and offers many amenities and affordable housing. 

With more sun-filled days than any US city, Scottsdale is the city of choice for individuals of all ages. Judged "Most Livable City" by the United States Conference of Mayors, Scottsdale has an award winning park system, excellent schools, affordable housing, and low property tax rates.
