We’re obsessed with all things Mid-Century Modern so when 5111 N SADDLE ROCK LN, Phoenix, AZ 85018 was listed for the 1st time ever for sale we had to showcase… And since the listing is so well described along with a little education about the architect we just could not screw it up so we copy and pasted the words of the listing agents Scott A Jarson and Deborah S Jarson with AZArchitecture/Jarson & Jarson

Asking price: $1,495,000

Mid-Century Modern Designed by Frank Lloyd Wright Apprentice Blaine Drake, Camelback Mountain area home is offered for the first time. You’ll find a generous floorplan, Mountain and City Light views, gently elevated Acre lot. Masonry construction w/ high level of craftsmanship; custom steel facia, mahogany millwork, unique built-ins. Curved ”loggia” leads to entry. The home is original for the purist. Floor to ceiling glass connects to outdoors. Generous Master w/large W/I closet and en-suite bath. Office/Den w/walnut built-ins. Living room open to dining, anchored by masonry fireplace. Large Kitchen, 3 additional bedrooms, one w/en-suite bath. Corner lot w/circular drive, storage, 2-car carport, bonus shop/studio. Home is ready to enjoy, restore or renovate. Trust Sale: ”AS-IS”.

Designed by Blaine Drake in 1964, this remarkable Camelback Mountain area home is offered for sale from the original owners for the first time. True Mid-Century Desert Modern Design, this home is offers a wonderful floorplan and incredible Mountain and City light views from a gently elevated acre lot.

The Hawkins House was designed and built in 1963-1964 and figured prominently in Drake’s 1992 Exhibition “40 Years of Architecture In Arizona” which was presented at ASU. A luxury home at the time, it includes amenities often unseen in this architectural era.

The house is masonry construction showcasing a high level of craftsmanship with details that include a custom steel facia, mahogany millwork and custom built-ins. A curved “loggia” follows the path to the entry providing detail, shadow and a covered respite from the elements. Nearly original save for a few cosmetic updates, the plan has remained unchanged. Floor to ceiling glass and doors connect the home solidly to the outdoors, yet all are sheltered with generous overhangs that make this home desert-appropriate modernism.

The Master suite is particularly generous, with a large walk-in closet and en-suite bath. The Office/Den features walnut built-ins. The Living room is open to dining, anchored by a masonry fireplace. Three additional bedrooms are offered, one with en-suite bath.

This corner acre property includes natural gas service and sports a circular drive for easy access from both Saddle Rock Lane and Rockridge Drive. There is ample storage, two-car carport and bonus shop/studio/storage room.

In a time where many of Drake’s designs became more rectangularly geometric, this home is wonderfully unique in that the home consists two intersecting arcs. Each arc plays a functional part in the design; one housing living spaces with a generous master suite and office, the other connects with additional bedrooms, service area and carport. Each arc allows the home to embrace a particular view selected by the architect to be celebrated by the occupants.

For anyone interested in Mid-Century Modern Design, this home presents a uniquely unspoiled example. It is offered from the family for the first time and is ready to enjoy, restore or renovate to its fullest potential.


Trust Sale: all offers should be considered “as-is”. It is priced for immediate sale and shown by personal appointment only. NEW TO MARKET!

About the Architect:
Blaine Drake was one of Frank Lloyd Wright’s original apprentices at Taliesin, Wisconsin, in 1933, and went on to establish his Arizona practice in 1945. He designed approximately two hundred projects during his long career, nearly two-thirds of which were built. Most of his work was in the Phoenix area and focused on residential architecture, though he also designed office, medical, and apartment buildings and churches. One of the few Wright apprentices to pursue a successful independent practice, Drake was an advocate of energy-efficient design in the desert. He received national and international recognition for his work. Blaine Drake retired from architectural practice in 1985.

The GOOD. the BAD. the UGLY. SELLING a home with TENANTS | Phoenix-metro


There are many reasons someone might need to sell a tenant-occupied property in the Valley of the Sun (Arizona).

You hate being a landlord, landlord life is not for you! You want to take advantage of Phoenix, Arizona hot sellers’ market. You are looking to move money elsewhere. If you must sell a home with tenants its best to tread lightly

and do some research. Kidding… JK it’s not breaking bad style of selling homes although we have been called the wild wild west or real estate. Everyday homes in Phoenix, Scottsdale, Tempe, Chandler, Mesa, Gilbert, Glendale, Peoria, and through Maricopa County Arizona are being sold with tenants in place.

Here lies the good, the bad, and the ugly of selling a home with tenants plus some advice and guidance from top Realtor John Pesqueira.

P.S if you hate reading, email, or call for a consultation.

The Good (Thank you baby Jesus):

By selling a home with tenants it allows you to continue collecting rents and making money (Cheddar baby). On top of rental income when you close escrow you will receive a huge check (Cha Ching). And if done correctly you will not need to transfer or pay back the deposits. This is a perfect world scenario but as well all know nothing is perfect. There is a saying in real estate, what can, will go wrong. Expect the unexpected.

The Bad (issues that must be addressed upfront):

Tenants have rights! Every landlord in Arizona should read the Arizona Land Lord Tenant act. Get familiar with this bible. Know your rights and the tenants’ rights before listing any property with tenants.

A common tenant right is 48 hours’ entry notice. Many tenants will allow showings in short notice and or in 24 hours but that should be addressed with the tenants and in writing. An entry notice must be in writing or email, should be followed up with a call, and a confirmation. This means that any and all showings, inspections, or any entry must be scheduled days in advance.

On the other side buyers don’t have the time to wait for a showing in a hot market like Phoenix-Scottsdale-Tempe, Arizona. You will have many buyers pass the home up for a showing or interest and some are good buyers. A tenant (not knowing) can easily sabotage a sale by making it difficult to access or not allowing showings. ** Reminder *** read/familiarize the Arizona Land Lord Tenant act. It’s your landlord bible.

The Ugly (Go F**K YOURSELF!):

A tenant can kill the deal fast! A tenant can damage the property before and after inspections. A tenant can damage the home before final walkthrough. If the damage is substantial the new buyer might want to renegotiate price, credit, or terms. The new buyer could back out and the sale falls through. This will leave the issue with you. At this point you lost a good buyer, you waisted a lot of time, and your home is in worse shape than when you put it up for sale. A lose all the way.

A mad or uncooperative tenant is difficult to work with. If a tenant is being difficult with you (Seller) how do you think he will be with a 3rd party like a Realtor? Not good, the deal is dead on arrival.

The truth about selling a home with tenants is your buyer pool is smaller for many reasons (access/entry, unforeseen damages and issues, etc.). Financing is a little trickier for tenant occupied homes when it comes to 1st time home buyers and todays #1 buyer is 1st time home buyer. When selling to an investor buyer make sure to have P&L, leases, and tenant info ready. But all these issues if addressed upfront and correctly will result in a top of the market sale.

Advice (From a top Realtor, John Pesqueira)

Tenants are a crucial part of selling a home with tenants, they somewhat take the position of the owner. As a top Realtor in the Phoenix, Arizona market (including Scottsdale, Tempe, Chandler, Mesa, Gilbert, Glendale, and through Maricopa County Arizona) I have sold many homes with tenants in place. My advice is right from the beginning of the move in date or 1st meet start building a good repour with the tenant. Don’t be a slum lord! Always be courteous and quick to correct issues/respond. Communicate with them often, maybe add verbiage the lease that allows you to enter every 3 months for maintenance and ask them if selling in the future would be an issue – even if you’re not considering selling. This will allow you entry/access and by doing so will keep you up to date with your property.

Although you’re in the real estate business, your also in the people/customer service business. In the people/customer services business people will work with, not against people they like.

This last part is some option scenarios for selling a home with tenants, a guidance as you will.

Option 1: the best option is allowing the lease to expire or let them move out. This allows you to fix up the home and get it ready to sell. It’s almost guaranteed you will make more money without a tenant in place and the home will be ready for new buyer. Even investors prefer a move in ready home vs one with a tenant. Unless they are getting a deal or have done this before.

Option 2: You must sell, don’t spring the sale on the tenant last minute. The minute you are considering selling let the tenant know. This will give them time to prepare and or enough time to find a new place if need. Let’s say at first the tenant is upset, give them time to come around. Sometimes people need a little time to reconsider. Ask their thought about it and if they will be cooperative. More than likely they will be cooperative. If they could be a problem offer them some sort of incentive (less in rent, $ for early move out, dinner, gas, etc.) for early move out or cooperation. If you know for a fact, they will be difficult then wait till the lease expires and let them move out but don’t rush them out. Tenants have rights.

Option #3: Hold onto your investment. Phoenix, Arizona and surrounding cities (Scottsdale, Tempe, Chandler, Mesa, Gilbert, Glendale, and through Maricopa County Arizona.) is one of the hottest real estate markets in the country. Home values continue to go up and last I heard the Phoenix metro area holds the fastest rising rents.

The last and really the first step is choosing an agent. If you choose an agent to begin with then they will guide you through the process. It allows the agent to begin building repour with the tenants as well as yourself.

A Realtor selling a home with tenants should be courteous. A Realtor should try to work with them and handle any and all showings through them. A Realtor should give the tenant 48+ hours’ notice (Or what was agreed upon) to enter. A Realtor should treat them like they treat any client. A tenant should access to the Realtor and his/her team 24/7. And finally, the Realtor should understand the tenant’s position; also understand the seller’s position as I have been both in my life.

Downsizing up: Swap a house for a PENThouse. Lifestyle!


Less is more!

It’s not a money choice, it’s a lifestyle choice.

Today (older) buyers are downsizing. They are opting out of their 10,000+sf mansion with 4+ car garage, luxury home theaters, bowling alley, helipad, sprawling grounds, resort backyards, and gun ranges. And downsizing into their next trophy property: top floor penthouse or luxury condo high-rise.

Why downsize? The maintenance and upkeep of these huge homes, estates, and mansions is a job all its own. If you don’t maintain these homes, they deteriorate. The cost is a waste of money, not to mention the kids have moved out, the property is deteriorating, and it’s time for mom and pop to play and live.

Have you seen the amenities that come with a high-rise penthouse building? 24 hour security, concierge, gyms, spas, roof top pools and BBQ areas, access to resort hotels and pools, on call massage therapist, valet, dry cleaning, commercial offices for meetings, high-tech parking garages, and so much more. It’s an easy choice says realtor Juan Pesqueira. You might also save money, a lot of money by making the swap. So much so your options could include purchasing multiple properties to accommodate guest, for rental income, or buy in other cities and travel. Now let’s talk about outside: Walk to shopping, fine dining, coffee shops, restaurants, you don’t even need a car. If your destination is a little longer no worries an electric scooter will take you there.  

Penthouses are the latest trend in the urban Scottsdale-Phoenix-Tempe-Paradise Valley market and have become a desired contemporary housing option for home seekers. A penthouse (according to condoagent007) is traditionally known as the top-floor unit of a luxury residential building but that definition is changing. Now, “penthouse” is usually more of a marketing term that refers to a unit with a different layout from others in the building, ample outdoor space, great views, or largest size — but it’s not necessarily on the top floor. A penthouse is a lock and leave lifestyle. You can travel and not worry about the property. Hey honey can you fix the light, no worries babe. I’ll call the concierge.

Phoenix metro market is becoming more vertical. It’s a major change in the landscape of Phoenix, Arizona. We have an abundance of new high-rise penthouse developments to choose from. There is never a better time to downsize or relocate into a penthouse or luxury condo in the valley of the sun than now.
