About Brad and Rochelle Rudnick

Rochelle and I reside in Pleasanton, CA. We were introduced to the Tempe - Phoenix - Scottsdale area when our son attended Arizona State University. Our first property in the area was a condo near ASU where our son lived before graduation. We fell in love with the area especially since Scottsdale is the Spring Training home of the San Francisco Giants and many other MLB teams. Golf courses are everywhere and dining and shopping choices are plentiful. This is our home when we are not in California. It has all of the things we enjoy. We are confident you will enjoy the area as well..

Brad and Rochelle Rudnick purchased this condo in 2006

Why Brad and Rochelle Rudnick chose Desert Ridge

If location is important to you, this property will be the one which will fit all of your needs. You will have easy access to all of the major freeways in the area. You are close to all of the major attractions in the area including the airport, dining, shopping, entertainment, Spring Training and other professional sports venues and much. much more. We have given the property an upscale look just as we have done to our home in California. You will love it.

What makes this condo unique

When we purchased this property, we were looking for a gated community and a 1-level, ground floor condo for it's ease of entry and exit of the complex. In addition, our location is minutes from everything we enjoy about the area - professional baseball and basketball, golf, movies, entertainment, dining and shopping. We could not find a property that has everything that we were looking for in a vacation home.

We have leased this condo second time. Each time for a period of 1 month. We were impressed with the owners care to make us feel at home.

The condo was clean and well maintained.

Condo was equipped with every need that we had. The owners are pleasant to deal with, and we are looking forward to stay again.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

I loved the location of this condo with easy access on/off the 101 and close to Desert Ridge Marketplace. The grounds are very nice and the pool a great place to hang out. The condo itself was nicely equipped in the kitchen and just recently had new carpet installed in the bedrooms. Owners were very quick to answer questions and respond to emails and calls.

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time and were less than a mile from our son and his family. Relaxing with a couple minor problems, Brad and Rochelle were on top of them in hours. We were comfy and quiet. Everything we needed was there and ready to use. Very nice in this area. We always like heading to Old Town Scottsdale, Cave Creek (Bryans BBQ) and Carefree for rides, shops and lunch. No shortage of restaurants Busy at times but close to everything. Use caution entering and exiting the garage....It was close. Brad and Rochelle were just super and we had the pleasure of meeting them. You can't go wrong staying here. Thanks for having us. Chuck and Kathy
