The Neighborhood of Windsor Square

With homes and infrastructure dating back to the early 20th century, Windsor Square is full of history and character. Over the decades, these homes have been remodeled and updated, but the area does an exceptional job of keeping the original integrity of the dwelling. Even the homes here that haven’t been renovated are well kept and tidy. The veritable pride of ownership in Windsor Square is noticeable. It’s not surprising that Money Magazine voted Windsor Square as one of the Top Ten Neighborhoods in the U.S. in 2013.


North Central Phoenix’s Uptown Farmers Market:

For those looking to buy and eat local, you’ll find everything you could imagine and more at the Uptown Farmers Market. Open Saturdays and Wednesdays, patrons can stroll the market set up on North Central Avenue. You never know exactly what you’ll find, from honey to crafts, tomatoes to goat yogurt, but one thing is certain, everything at the market is of the highest quality.  Over a hundred vendors frequent the farmers market, and Phoenicians flock to support local Arizona agriculture and small, family owned businesses. You can grab a cup of coffee, or a slice of pizza, and make a day of it!

The Neighborhood of Madison Park:

The mature landscaping in this upscale neighborhood is something you absolutely cannot miss. Green lawns and expansive yards make up the plots in this suburb, many of this flora dating back to the first homes being built in this suburb. In a similar nature to Windsor Square, the residents of Madison Park take a great deal of pride in their homes and yards, and it’s apparent with every home you pass.

The central location of this neighborhood provides its residents with nearby amenities and entertainment, while still allowing them to enjoy a quieter environment outside of the hustle and bustle (and sometimes dirtiness) of city life.

Murphy Bridle Path

Founded in 1895, the Murphy Bridle Path is an over five mile long hiking path enjoyed by hikers, bikers, dogs, and per its name, of course horses. The path has actually been there longer than most of the north central Phoenix’s infrastructure around it. Recognized as part of the Phoenix Historic Property Register, the path remains as a connection from the present to the past of this historic area, when the west was truly wild.

The Murphy Bridle path weaves throughout north central Phoenix, and even swings past the farmers market, making it the perfect way to turn your farmers market visit into a fun and healthy activity for the whole family.

I recently moved to Phoenix from out of state and found Greg through his series of online videos for AZ Live Style Group. Buying a house when coming from another state is challenging, but I can say I found the ideal partner and agent in Greg. In a very challenging market, Greg's deep knowledge of the Phoenix area market, his patience, and especially his dedication to helping me find the right home was exactly what I needed. Greg took the time to help me learn the market, explore neighborhoods, and find the right home! I'm excited to start my next chapter here in Phoenix and I cannot recommend Greg highly enough for anyone who needs a great partner in finding their perfect home.

Greg really listened to what we wanted and made the whole process super easy. He didn’t try to sell us on a property that we weren’t interesting in but was also able to show us a few places that we might not have found on our own. Will definitely continue to use Greg in the future.

Greg is awesome! Found him on his Youtube channel about 1.5 years ago when I was planning to move to AZ. I worked with Greg over the phone and finally in person a year ago. He found me the perfect home in Chandler. He guided me through the whole offer process with an anticipated bidding war. His strategy worked. I won the offer in 24 hrs and closed in 30 days. Everything went perfectly and love the home after 1 year. Greg's in-depth knowledge of the area, the market conditions and the strategy to close the deal was perfect spot on. I felt almost no stress and he managed all the details thru the closing. Professionalism on display!

We have worked with Greg on selling 2 homes and buying 2 homes. Greg is a professional through and through. He was always available to jump on a call to discuss whatever was going on. His experience and guidance helped us make great decisions during the process of buying and selling our homes.
