What is it Like Living in an Optima Community?

Read what people are saying as residents tell all

"The thought behind sight lines that allowed residents to maintain privacy yet still have tons of fenestration."

Paul Deffenbaugh, Editorial Director, Professional Builder Magazine

"The green roofs and reflecting pools make this project feel like an oasis in the desert. I also love the way the architecture evokes prairie style with its wide roof overhangs. Frank Lloyd Wright would approve!"

Susan Bady, Senior Editor, Design, Professional Builder Magazine

"The first thing that grabbed me walking in was the very distinctive, modern architecture. I liked the glass walls that let in lots of natural light and the idea of having green terraces for each unit."

Felicia Oliver, Senior Editor, Professional Builder Magazine

"Their ability to sell those things in the market the way it is now and the amount of luxury it offered. The contemporary architecture of it was very cool, there's no question."

Bill Lurz, Senior Editor, Business, Professional Builder Magazine

"I was particularly impressed by the lush greenery that cascaded from every ledge, which turned their central walkways and courtyard area into a private, calming oasis while the outside bustled with neighborhood traffic and noise you couldn't see or hear."

Mark Jarasek, Senior Editor, Electronic Media, Professional Builder Magazine

"It has almost been a year since closing on my unit at Optima. What a fabulous area Mr. Hovey has created! I feel very fortunate to live in such a lovely, exciting place.

"I had looked at Arizona condos for over two years and was close to deciding on one that did not excite me. When my Realtor took me to Optima, I was finally enthused. Thank you for the outstanding work you did to assist with the purchase. Your knowledge, helpfulness, positive attitude and willingness to answer my numerous questions certainly facilitated my purchase."

Judy Cunningham, Homeowner, Optima Camelview Village

"We were sold on the architecture and talent of designer and architect David Hovey and his team.""The community has materialized from the ground floor up. Hovey has a real winner here."

"Every time we come here we are even happier. It's like living at a resort here—you can walk to everything." You can't beat this location. This is the destination for all of Arizona right here. This is home."

Wendy and Glen Smith, Homeowners, Optima Camelview Village

"My husband loves to walk," Optima Camelview's location was a prime reason why we bought a home here." It seems like everyone either vacations here or is moving here from the Chicagoland area."

"Being from the Chicago area, we of course knew about Optima, and had all the confidence in the world with what they do. The renderings were beautiful but the finished product far exceeds our expectations. We are within walking distance of our favorite restaurants, great shopping and two movie theaters. How much more convenient can that be?"

"Although location and aesthetics are the main reasons we bought at Optima Camelview Village, the people are the reason we enjoy it so much." They tell you what you are going to get and it is, indeed, what you get."

Shirlee and Eugene Cohen, Homeowners, Optima Camelview Village

"I saw the renderings and thought: this place is going to be great! But now, looking at the finished product, it's actually even better. Being in Real Estate, I can tell you that doesn't happen very often."

"There are a lot of young professionals here so they can live the 24/7 on-the-go lifestyle. The terrace is like having my own backyard; it's like a whole extra room outside. Even in the summer I enjoy sitting out there. It's sheltered, peaceful and surrounded by plants and the flowers. It's wonderful."

"I had friends over the other night and we sat on my terrace and then walked over to the promenade area and it felt like we were on vacation. We could hear the waterfall and it was so peaceful...like we were at a resort hotel or on an island. Everything I could ever want is right here."

Kelsey Young, Homeowner, Optima Camelview Village

"It has almost been a year since closing on my unit at Optima. What a fabulous area Mr. Hovey has created! I feel very fortunate to live in such a lovely, exciting place."

"I had looked at Arizona condos for over two years and was close to deciding on one that did not excite me. When my Realtor, Suzanne Rabold, took me to you at Optima, I was finally enthused. Thank you for the outstanding work you did to assist with the purchase. Your knowledge, helpfulness, positive attitude and willingness to answer my numerous questions, certainly facilitated my purchase."

"Members of the Customer Service department have been outstanding to work with. They have consistently showed concern for the customer and performed their jobs very well."

Walter Barrett, Homeowner, Optima Biltmore Towers.

"We were really looking to simplify our lives. We travel a great deal and the children have all moved on, so we felt that downsizing to a condo would be most conducive to our changing lifestyle. We loved the rooftop pool, sky terraces, dramatic entrances and 15-story atrium. But what really sealed the deal was Optima's and David Hovey's flawless reputation. Even David's competitors couldn't say a bad word about him. Buying our condo and working with the design team has been a fantastic experience, and one we will never forget. The folks at Optima have truly become our friends."

Brian Goodwin and Judy Wolfe, Homewowners, Optima Biltmore Towers

"We like to dine out and Sally loves to shop, so this is perfect for us. Now living in a spacious two-bedroom with a split floor plan I think this building is one of the most attractive places to live in Phoenix. My wife and I want to enjoy life, and this just seemed like a good place to do that."

General Seth J. McKee and Sally McKee, Homeowners, Optima Biltmore Towers

"Many in our community point to Optima Camelview Village with a lot of pride. Optima has set the bar higher in Scottsdale of what we are trying to create. This community adds a lot to Scottsdale."

City of Scottsdale Mayor Mary Manross

"For people who seek true urban living, this property has a lot going for it: location, architectural brilliance, and convenience.

Noelle Bowman, Arizona Republic

"You will not find a more upscale, modern, environmentally friendly, hip, and flat-out amazing place to live than a penthouse suite at Optima Camelview Village."

Monica Manson, Post Magazine

"Around 600 B.C. the fabled Hanging Gardens of Babylon was considered one of the original Seven Wonders of the World...fast-forward to 2008 to Scottsdale's Optima Camelview Village condominium project northwest of Highland Avenue and Scottsdale Road."

Diana Balazs, Arizona Republic

"One development currently standing out in the Arizona market for progressive design, superior location and environmental consciousness is Optima Camelview Village."

International Homes Magazine

"Optima Scottsdale: it's a steel-frame building that celebrates its ability to leap out into space to make bridges, jutting planted terraces, and shading canopies while opening up the walls for light and air. High-density Arizona urban living at its best."

John Meunier, Architectural Professor, Arizona Republic
