Having our own Celeb & Sports Division, we are highly involved with celebrities buying and selling real estate in Scottsdale and Paradise Valley. Today, on LUXE BLOG, we will discuss why these two Arizona hotspots attract high-profile figures. While they call Greater Phoenix the West Coast’s South Beach, it’s not just about warm weather. Surrounded by natural beauty, Scottsdale and PV are beloved for MANY reasons. Let’s get into it.
Well known individuals live under a microscope. Because of this, they often seek solace in secluded areas. Residences in the mountains, on penthouse floors of buildings, or in guard-gated communities create cozy hideaways. And this helps create maximum privacy. For example, the upcoming FENDI Private Residences will start in the millions and offer “paparazzi-proof” penthouses.
PV and Scottsdale are where it’s at. From infinity-edge pools with views to pools to earth-shattering home theaters, the homes in Scottsdale and Paradise Valley are a paradise within themselves. It’s no surprise that celebrities are drawn to these neighborhoods. With the upcoming Ritz-Carlton Residences and Ascent at The Phoenician, this statement only becomes more true.
Our Celeb & Sports Division represents pro athletes. The fact that Greater Phoenix is where MLB’s Spring Training is the reason why many pro athletes end up buying real estate. And they don’t just buy homes for annual visits. In many cases they buy something with the FUTURE in mind. In fact, we’d say a GOOD portion of our pro athlete clients still own properties from when they lived here. The three main factors for pro athletes are being 30 minutes from:
The three above destinations must almost always all be within 30 minutes of home.
Scottsdale and Paradise Valley are not just hubs for nature enthusiasts; they are also home to some of Arizona’s best shopping and entertainment options. Kierland Commons, Scottsdale Fashion Square, and the Borgata of Scottsdale offer luxury shopping for high-end brands like Prada, Gucci, and Chanel. Celebrities also love dining hotspots such as Maple & Ash! We know, we are there ALL the time 🙂
The film industry is gradually shifting its focus towards Arizona, as more and more productions are leaving California in search of fresh locations and opportunities. As this trend continues, the presence of renowned actors in the state is also increasing. One such prominent actor is Rob Schneider. From what we here, he, as well as MANY other big names are doing more and more projects here in the valley. This shift is not only expanding the state’s reputation in the entertainment world but also providing new prospects for local talent and businesses. And we know a little bit about TV ourselves being that we are currently filming Season 1 of our new reality TV show. More details on that later but we do share photos from shoots as they happen!

Last but not least, the warm climate of Scottsdale and Paradise Valley is a great attraction for celebrities. Greater Phoenix is known for its sun. The warm climate allows for outdoor activities like golfing and swimming, which are some of the favorite hobbies of many celebrities.
The Sonoran Desert that encircles Scottsdale and Paradise Valley creates colorful sunsets and happy memories. What this means is high-end homeowners in prime-location communities are spoiled with beautiful scenery. The McDowell Mountains, Papago Buttes, and Camelback Mountain offer an unrivaled backdrop.
