  • Eddie Jones

    “Every great City needs an enlightened Realty Company. Phoenix has azarchitecture/Jarson & Jarson. Arizona is very fortunate to have many great architects and the Jarsons have created a business model unique in the Southwest which supports, encourages and values excellence. Other big city REALTOR® would do well to learn from their example.”

  • Louise Roman

    “Jarson & Jarson are THE resource when buying or selling contemporary homes of design distinction. They have vast experience in the field, knowledge of what is “happening” before it is even “happening”, high professional standards, and good support staff. You always feel that you are getting their full attention and that they want to make what can be a stressful transaction as smooth, and, yes, fun as it can be. Bravo!”

  • Larry A. Woodin

    Past President, Frank Lloyd Wright Building Conservancy

    “Jarson & Jarson’s passionate commitment to modern architecture extends into the preservation of the modernist legacy. Scott and Debbie were instrumental in the successful effort to save the Phoenix house Frank Lloyd Wright designed for his son David and daughter-in-law Gladys from demolition. They were enthusiastic and effective preservation advocates without whose contributions the effort may not have succeeded.”

  • Craig Barton & Marthe Rowen,

    Director and Faculty, The Design School of ASU Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts

  • Renata Hejduk & Darren Petrucci

    azarchitecture is the only real estate agency in Arizona with the real knowledge and expertise to deal with modern and contemporary architecture. Their global knowledge of contemporary architecture, architects, and urbanism allows them to understand the market and their clients’ needs in a way that no other firm in the Valley can. As design professionals, we trust their advice implicitly, and have had nothing but incredibly successful deals with them at the helm.”

  • Thomas Hyland

    “Last year, my wife and I moved abroad to pursue career opportunities. We chose to lease our home through azarchitecture/Jarson & Jarson and utilize their property management services in our absence. We couldn’t be more thrilled with the results. Scott and Debbie have managed everything; from financial appraisals to lease negotiations and tenant management to ongoing home maintenance, with both care and professionalism. We know our home is in good hands with Jarson & Jarson.”

  • Nicole Roberts

    “Scott has an incredible knowledge and understanding of all housing types and locations the Metropolitan Phoenix area.

  • David and Martha Bills

    “We first discovered the Byrne residence on Happily, we now refer to that wonderful Will Bruder creation as “…our home in the desert…” and we have Jarson & Jarson to thank for helping transform a dream into reality. When we first spoke on the phone I felt as if I’d known the Jarsons for a very long time, since I’d been using the website as one of my carefully-selected “go to” resources focusing on architecturally unique homes for years! The tasteful photographs and informative descriptions made it a pleasure to visit the site – and I was visiting often! The depth of knowledge they possess, the demonstrated passion for good design – plus the simple fact they were a genuine pleasure to work with – meant Martha and I knew right away we’d found the right real estate firm.

    Scott helped us really appreciate the subtle architectural details, (as well as the superb craftsmanship), of the Byrne residence. Debbie made sure the transaction was managed expertly while deftly coordinating between everyone involved in the closing process. We couldn’t be happier!”


  • Dawson Fearnow

    Former Editor-in-Chief

  • Adam Draizin

    “Scott Jarson and his team helped me find and buy an Al Beadle mid-century modern home in 2005. The generous and insightful post purchase support I received from Scott and his team has led me to work with Scott numerous times since then on home leasing, sales and purchase. When someone asks me about finding an architecturally interesting home in Arizona, I always recommend Scott and azarchitecture first.”

  • Dan Silverman

I like them so much I even bought a Beadle house from them!”

  • Bret Hobza

    “Thank you, Scott…Your ability to read the buyer comes from years of experience and knowing how to craft a solution to a unique challenge. The Jarson team was a pleasure to work with and I feel fortunate to have had your skills on my side of the table…”

  • Jill Kohler

    azarchitecture/Jarson & Jarson were fantastic. From the first phone contact to the last e-signature, the  customer service was present at each stage of the purchasing process. And to add to the experience, everyone understood what we meant when referencing mid-century and modern. There was no confusion or touring of homes that were contemporary southwest (which is NOT what we wanted). We were seeking modern and we toured just that. And the home we bought is perfect for our family, best location and best price. I highly recommend working with Scott and Debbie.”

I learned so much from your perspective and am amazed at the fluidity with which you wove in information on the Sonoran desert ecosystem, the culture and camaraderie of the community, and the legacy of interesting and pioneering architecture. You are such a pro—thank you for sharing your love of architecture and of the desert with us.”

  • Jenny Cohen and Joe Garcia

    “Debbie and Scott helped us find an investment property and they were invaluable in the process! They were knowledgeable, kind, extremely professional, and gave us great advice during a difficult negotiation. After we got the property, they helped us get it rented quickly to a well-qualified tenant. We can’t thank them enough, and would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for a REALTOR® and/or property manager.”

  • Deborah Gilbert

  • Michael Liebman

    “Selling a home or searching for and/or buying a home with the Jarsons is a wonderful and unique experience. With Scott or Debbie as my REALTOR®, I have always found the home I truly wanted, learned a great deal about architecture and design and about the housing history of Phoenix. They are bright, knowledgeable, trustworthy and so enjoyable… I really can’t imaging buying or selling with anyone but them!”

  • Stephen Parsons

    “I decided to hire Jarson & Jarson to represent me because of their proven track record for selling architecturally significant homes.

  • David Tyda

Scott has acquired a great deal of knowledge behind modern desert architecture and I have often sought his opinion or called on him for information – not just as a real estate agent, but as someone who knows the ins and outs of good design in the desert.”

  • Rick Phillips

    “Scott Jarson is one of the rare few that have found a way to turn their passion into business. His love and expertise of real estate, particularly in the contemporary design niche, has made him the best choice of agent when choosing a home. I should know, he sold me mine.”

  • Steve & Victoria Lindley

    “Scott and Debbie did a fantastic job of selling our desert home, creating the perfect marketing to emphasize the unique design and detail, advising us on improvements before listing and setting pricing to maximize both interest and value.

  • Kathryn Logan

    “There are not enough stars to say how highly I would recommend Kathy Rios to help you in the sale or purchase of your home. From our initial meeting to the closing on our property, she went above and beyond. She is extremely knowledgeable about the local real estate market and any time we had an issue with a prospective buyer, she always had a plan B. She handled my out of state home sale. Kathy was so knowledgable about every aspect of our home transaction and that gave me the confidence I needed to make decisions on the sale.”

  • Cristin & John Saiz

    Kathy Rios has been an invaluable support to our family. She helped us buy and sell homes, and helped us find our forever home. She was excellent in negotiating and also very knowledgeable and there were technical things that we had to deal with. Kathy is very well-connected in Phoenix, and that was helpful when we needed extra support throughout the process of selling our last home. She is efficient, responsive, and the hardest working REALTOR® I’ve ever met. We will be forever thankful for her impact on our family.”

  • Cindy & Eduardo Hernandez

    “I’ve used Kathy Rios now for multiple transactions and have referred her to several friends in the local area! Each time Kathy has done a great job helping us get what we need. Most recently Kathy helped me sell a condo in AZ, while I live in NC. She went over the top in ensuring the place was clean, that repairs were made on time before the sale, etc. She did way more than I would have expected any REALTOR® to do. The sales price was exactly on the $ of what she thought it would be.”

  • Susan V

    “I’ve sold houses before and have never had an agent like Alison Hamlet. Alison creates stellar open houses and uses the highest quality of resources to market your home. Alison is savvy, energetic, honest, and proactive, truly a Mirarcle Worker!”

    about the differences in architecture of these homes in terms of their resale value. She is
    generous and patient.”

  • Terry & Joe Zbick

    “People are afraid of selling or buying Historic homes but Alison Hamlet holds your
    hand every step of the way. She throws incredible open houses that generate offers too!”


  • CL

    “I feel fortunate to have come upon Alison Hamlet. She came to me as a referral from someone who spoke highly of her. My situation was a bit out of the norm and I was impressed with how she was quick to come up with out of the box ideas. She treated me as though I was her most important client. Alison is a master negotiator and demonstrates an in control demeanor is upbeat and solution-oriented.

  • Connie Loveless

    Kristen Ashhurst handled the sale of my father’s home in Carefree, AZ last year and I can’t tell you how happy we were that she did! She did a wonderful job of “spreading the word” of this lovely home. When an offer came in that was “just not acceptable to our family”, she negotiated a workaround with the bidder such that all parties agreed. We were thrilled with Kristen’s work in every way and certainly intend to use her services again!”

  • William D. Stockton

    “Buying/selling a home can be quite daunting…Kristen Ashhurst is the consummate professional and can put you at ease knowing she has your back when it comes to all the fine details of real estate. Never have I worked with a more dedicated REALTOR® who not only gave sound advice, but listened to my personal requests and needs as well. I highly recommend Kristen when buying or selling your next home.”

  • Ed and Alice Wojcik

    Kristen Ashhurst is an amazing REALTOR®! She is willing to explore creative avenues in order to get a property bought and sold. Kristen is a pleasure to work with!”

  • Rob Langejans

    “If you’re moving to Phoenix, call Arlee [Reach]. You won’t find a harder-working agent who will search, find, and show you properties that fit your interests. She will walk you through the entire process from finding temporary housing while you search and move, to securing just the right permanent place.  Arlee makes herself available to get the job done at all hours, and even offers to pick you up from the airport! Many thanks Arlee for your help and attention to detail, and helping us make the move!”

  • James Duren

    “After deciding to sell my home and move from Phoenix, I searched listings posted by Zillow. For a month I searched Sun City listings until the assistance from Kathy Rios was required. I found her to be professional, as well as personable. She is smart, pleasant and patient. Kathy will answer all your questions and available to your schedule. But, most of all I found her to be honest and honorable to the buyer or seller she represents. To qualify Kathy with five stars is an understatement.”

  • Jennifer Magness

    “Kathy [Rios] was very responsive to my requests — she respond immediately and went the extra mile to get everything completed in a timely fashion. I would highly recommend her.”

  • Beverly Barnes

    “I have known Arlee [Reach] for several years, not as a business associate, but as a friend and person you can count on. We engaged her as our real estate agent to help us accomplish our goals in a timely fashion. All of the fine qualities I saw in Arlee, the friend, transferred to our professional relationship. I saw a drive to achieve our goals no matter how difficult or how many hours it took. We had a limited time to sell our first property and purchase our second. It took 22 days from start to finish.”

  • James & Debra Smallwood

    Kathy Rios is a very pleasant, hard working realtor that puts your needs first. She was always on top of what came available, and getting a list of homes for you to view. Every time we contacted her about a house, she was ready to show us all the houses we were interested in seeing. She helped us find that perfect home in Sun City. She kept us updated on the closing info after we found that home. We highly recommend Kathy to help you find that special home or to sell your home.”

  • Thomson & Elycia Schaetzel

    “Kathy [Rios] listed our house in Sun City West. Our house was a rental, and she worked with our tenant about showing the house. She worked with the Realtors to make sure that everything went well, even though it was an occupied house at the time of the sale. Kathy was enjoyable to work with, she was very helpful, outgoing and prompt. I would work with her again and refer her to others.”

  • Mallory Underwood

    “Lori [Frisbie] was the realtor on the rental property we were interested in which was quite popular. Yet, she always responded to our calls and texts and was helpful with suggestions and inquires about the application process. Since then, she has gone above and beyond to ensure we were prepared for our move and the area. The little touches, like a note of restaurant suggestions and a mechanic were noticed and much appreciated!”

  •  L.C.

    “When I got ready to sell my house I would ask her for expertise. She spent hours with me talking about the market and provided comps and showed her interest but never pressured me for the listing. Lori [Frisbie] successfully sold my property, and I give her exceptional marks in all categories for her stellar service and professional excellence. When I think of our time working together, these words come to mind — diligent, eager, hands on, fun, efficient, patient, knowledgable, sensible, inquisitive, respectful, caring, inspiring and heartfelt.”

  • Sabrina Nunez

    “Looking for someone to do the impossible (like sell your home during Christmas season), or can’t find the ‘right’ home because no one ‘gets’ you? There’s hope! Alison Hamlet is a wonderful, kind, driven, stop-at-nothing, go-getter. She walked our home, had us do some minor changes, staged it and went above and beyond when it came to open houses. You just can’t go wrong with her and we loved working with her.”

  • The McClure’s

    “Alison [Hamlet] has been a wonderful help in assisting in our relocation from out of state and in our current home search. She’s very responsive, has detailed information on each property and always communicates in an incredibly timely manner. She’s an excellent resource of all things local and an incredibly personable agent. I’d highly recommend working with her and her team.”

  • Frank L.

    “In the thirty-plus years in the valley, I have owned 5 homes, so I’ve had a lot contact with other realtors. For the most part, they represented me in a professional manner. Alison [Hamlet], however has raised the bar. I have the feeling that she worked 24/7 on marketing my home. She kept me informed on what was happening in my neighborhood. I was impressed with the “traffic” she has had through there.”

  • Jim & Lori Dryburgh

    “In all the rush it is good to reflect. It’s been a journey and you and your team have done fabulous work with staging, pictures and promotion. This is EXACTLY why we knew you were right for us and this house! You have made the retreat look and feel fantastic and have captured the amazingness of our HOME! Thank you Alison [Hamlet] and your exceptional team.”

  • Don

    “I recommend Alison Hamlet without reservation to handle your real estate marketing and sales. I have worked closely with Alison for over 8 years. She is efficient, hard-working, dependable, and creative. Along with her photographer, Alison created a very dramatic video that displayed my home in a fantastic way. My sale is taking place at this time and the visits by possible buyers have been great. I expect a favorable sale very soon.”

  • Dr. Sumediah N.

    “Coming from Toronto; one of the most diverse cities in the world, I was apprehensive moving to a less diverse place. My realtor – Alison [Hamlet] was the first person I met and she made my experience of looking for a house my best experience. She held my hand and walked with me every step until I got a house and settled in it. I felt as if she was family and her happiness depended on my happiness.”

  • S.S.

    “Alison [Hamlet] is as sharp as they get. You want her representing your best interests. She truly cares and I love my new home and feel she looked out for me and negotiated for the best deal possible.”

  • Tony & Joanne Silva

  • Maureen & Henry Phalen

  • Tyler V.

    “Monica is AMAZING! She stuck with us for over a year while we searched for the perfect home. She is extremely knowledgable about the AZ market and sticks by her clients throughout the whole process, keeping you informed and offering excellent advice! We went back to her to sell our home in 2016 and once again, she did a knock-out job getting us top dollar and being there for at every moment.”

  • Rebecca P.

    “Monica [Holtzhauer] paid great attention to our personal tastes. She honed in on our preferences, to the extent our time was not wasted in trying to find our perfect home for us. We’ve bought & sold several homes; we can honestly testify that Monica is the best professional we’ve worked with on our recent home purchase. Unlike the many others we’ve dealt with, we will seek Monica’s guidance in the future.”

  • Cindy & Al Shingler

    “We were looking to purchase a home in Arizona while living in Ohio. The first day we spoke on the phone Monica [Holtzhauer] was so much help to us. She listened so well and the first set of homes she sent us were exactly our vision of our new home. She worked extremely hard to make sure we got the best price, she is amazing, we found the perfect home.”

  • David N.

    “I was completely satisfied with all aspects with the sale of my home. Being an out of state owner [from Wisconsin] I had to rely totally on Monica [Holtzhauer] to make quick decisions on my behalf. Always keeping me informed by phone, text, or email. To say the least, I was impressed with the ease of the sale and never having to fly to Phoenix.”

  • Anne Hughes

    “How lucky I was, that Kathy Rios answered the phone, the day I called on a property in Sun City! From the moment we met, until the day the contract was signed, her level of attention to details and thorough understanding of all real estate considerations, give her an A+ in her field of expertise. Kathy is incredibly organized and offers a complete package of information, both positive and negative aspects of each property, making sure you have all the information you need to make a solid decision on your major home purchase. I have honestly never worked with any other professional with such high work ethics. It was truly a pleasure to work with Kathy and I would do it again in a heartbeat.”

  • Stephen Pirro

    “From the start Kathy [Rios] has shown her true professionalism, knowledge of the market, access to potential buyers/renters, and overall dedication to her clients. Kathy assisted me in the rental of my Sun City property, and her knowledge of the Sun City area and its clientele made all the difference. If you are looking for a realtor, especially in the Sun City area, Kathy is definitely your best choice. I would employ her services again in a heart beat. She has gone over and above as a realtor.”

  • Darla Combs

    “Since I am in Texas, and the home was in Arizona, I could not have had anyone any better because she took care of so many things that I was not able to do. She was always available by phone or text, which is very important when you are out of state. Kathy was always pleasant and worked hard to help me complete my goal of selling in a certain time frame. Kathy Rios made my experience of selling a very successful and important experience. I would not hesitate to recommend Ms. Rios, anytime, anywhere!”
