About Green Valley

We are placed in the shadows of the beautiful Santa Rita Mountains, and we are conveniently located just 20 minutes away from Tucson with all the extended shopping and exploring one could hope for.

Green Valley has non age restricted areas as well as an abundance adult oriented communities. Green Valley also has over 60 homeowner associations under the umbrella of the Green Valley Community Coordination Council. The vast majority of the home owners' associations do require that one occupant be 55 years of age or greater, and no permanent resident under 18 years of years of age is permitted. (Of course, your grandchildren may visit!) Even if you are not 55 years of age yet, you can of course, still purchase property in Green Valley. The age restrictions are only for occupancy.
If you look at the major architectural influences in Green Valley, it would be a combination of Santa Fe, Territorial, California Mediterranean styles. We have multitude of builders in our area: Dorn, Meritage, Fairfield, Robson, Pulte, Del Webb, Lennar, DR Horton, KB homes just for starters. When purchasing a resale, most people prefer having a realtor represent them and help navigate them through the homeownership process. Most people do not know that when they are in the market for a new home that they can also have the services of a realtor to represent them at no extra cost. This policy by most of our local builders, shows that they are proud of their product and like the idea of their clients being able to have outside representation. And of course, if people do not want a realtor to represent them, they have to realize that the builders representatives work for the builder and are really only there to represent the builders interests. So if you are interested in a new home, and want representation, just contact us. Generally speaking, the only builder stipulation is that we accompany you to their models on your first visit. Our way of thanking our clients is to provide them with our "Builder Bonus" . Just call us for the details.
