About Sharon Riggs

I was born in Michigan and I've lived in Scottsdale for 32 years. I've also worked for Qwest (now Century Link) for 38 years! I love everything Scottsdale has to offer, dining, shopping, theatre, golf, hiking and biking. There's so much to do! I now own a home 4 miles away.

Sharon Riggs purchased this condo in 1999

Why Sharon Riggs chose Central Scottsdale

I lived in this condo for many years because I love Scottsdale. This is a perfect location. It's close to everything, parks, restaurants, shopping, golf etc...It's also a beautiful complex, architecturally striking!

What makes this condo unique

It's quiet and peaceful on this property and the beautiful Paradise Valley neighborhoods surrounding it yet it's a 5 minute walk to a busy Starbucks or many excellent restaurants, including the wonderful Hash Kitchen, California Pizza Kitchen and RAZZ Restaurant and Gallery (voted Best Chef and restaurant in Arizona for numerous years). It's also just a ten minute drive to Fashion Square and Old Town, 10 minutes to Kierland Commons and Scottsdale Quarter, Talking Stick Casino etc. 5 to 10 minutes in either direction for a variety of amenities all the while not feeling like you are in a big city.

Great vacation spot

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at Sharon's condo for 6 weeks. It was an ideal location for visiting Scottsdale and other areas in Phoenix. The condo is very well appointed and has everything you need for an enjoyable stay. Sharon is a great host and responds very quickly should you need anything. We would definitely stay there again.

Convenient, Cozy and Very Responsive Owner

  • 5 of 5

Photos are very accurate to property. Our one week visit could have easily been for longer, and we departed with interest in a future return. Floorplan with two master suites with full baths is ideal for a couple or two travelers. The two small patios invite morning coffee, (or evening vino) and are unexpectedly quiet despite their proximity to parking spaces. This ground floor unit is clean, and been nicely maintained for travelers comforts!

Sharon, the owner makes navigating the property, the general area and the airport as easy as possible. At every turn, she is responsive, professional and delightful to work with.

Best summer ever!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in this condo for two and a half months while participating in the Mayo Clinic's SURF program and I couldn't have asked for a better place to call home!! I was worried that without a car I wouldn't be able to get anywhere, but there are so many nice places within walking distance (restaurants, grocery stores, bars, a movie theater) and two easily accessible bus stops that I didn't even need my car! The community pool (which is surprisingly private) is also right in front of this condo which was such a blessing to have in the middle of the hot Arizona summer. The apartment was fully stocked with linens and kitchenware, which was much appreciated as a summer student that I didn't have to bring big bulky things!! My stay in AZ this summer was ten million times better because I was able to stay in Sharon's condo. She is a wonderful and attentive landlady and I would give this listing 15 stars if I could!

North Scottsdale Luxury Condo

  • 5 of 5

We had almost 2 months at Sharon's beautiful condo. We were treated to welcome gifts and the beginning of a new friendship. The condo was lovely and had everything that you would need for an enjoyable vacation. The location was fabulous, Scottsdale at your fingertips!! Sharon has her condo equipped with all the guides and information on restaurants, shopping and attractions that you could possibly want. We hope to make it back soon. Thank you for providing a beautifully furnished, comfortable and clean condo.

C & P

  • 5 of 5

We spent two months in Sharon's condo in the middle of summer and it was a great experience!!!!We were greeted with gifts and a welcome sign along with a beautiful condo. The pictures do not do it justice.!!! .Furnished with very nice furniture, it was tastefully decorated, including shutters to close when the sun gets hot, this condo has everything you need even for a long stay. The kitchen is equipped with everything including a George Forman grill, blender, coffee maker, toaster and all the normal glassware and cooking utensils you will need, even a pantry. No need to bring linens, there are plenty in both bedrooms and bath rooms. We loved having the second bedroom and bath when our granddaughter stopped to see us. There are two patios to enjoy especially when it rains. Even though the complex is located near main streets and great shopping it was very quiet. Great restaurants, Dairy Queen(my husbands favorite), grocery shopping, barber shop, and stores like Tuesday Morning are within walking distance. Mayo Hospital is only 15 min. away, and Scottsdale Rd is one block away where almost everything is located that you could possibly want to experience!!! Sharon provided lists of restaurants and shopping making it easier for us. One of the best parts of the two months was getting to know Sharon, she was wonderful to work with and made us feel so comfortable always asking if there was anything we needed. Having lived in Phoenix some 20 years ago, I can say without reservation that this condo is the perfect place for a get away!!!! We will be happy to go back and enjoy some quiet time!!! I would rate this not a 5 but a 10!!!!! Go and enjoy....

Perfect place to stay in Scottsdale!

  • 5 of 5

I’m a medical student and did a month rotation at the Mayo Clinic in August. We (including my wife and my two year old daughter) were lucky enough to stay in Sharon’s condo. If you have to be in Scottsdale in the summer, this is a great place to be!

We loved it. It was beautifully furnished throughout. It was exceptionally clean and the beds and beautiful sofas were super-comfortable. It looks even better than depicted in the photos. It doesn’t have a lot of nick knacks, which is perfect if you have a child or don’t like a lot of clutter. But everything you could possibly need was there. There are two patios and the condo is very open and light. It has plantation shutters on all three patio doors. They let the light in the day and dark and cool at night.

The two pools and hot tub are very close (but not too close so there’s no pool noise) and the complex is beautifully landscaped and quiet. The kitchen is very well stocked with all the appliances, dishes, glasses, pots and pans, and cooking utensils you’ll need.

This is an unbeatable location. The condo is a stone’s throw away from nice restaurants, shopping, and there’s a new Safeway almost across the street. There’s gourmet food shopping very close also (AJ’s Market is south on Scottsdale Rd a few miles and Whole Foods is west on Shea Blvd).

My wife enjoyed shopping at the Scottsdale Fashion Square Mall and the Scottsdale Quarter just a few miles north (fun, upscale shopping and an Apple store). We celebrated my 30th birthday at the most beautiful restaurant: Elements at the Sanctuary Resort. A little pricey but worth every penny! It’s on Camelback Mountain with fantastic views, awesome food and the best service you’ll ever find.

There’s a large YMCA right across 70th St. (5 minute walk). They have babysitting services, a lap pool, lots of weight machines, free weights, racquetball and basketball courts and much more.

This condo has a split bedroom floor plan, which would also be nice for two couples. Each couple has their own bathroom and private patio. It’s close to everything but still tucked away on a quiet street, making it a peaceful retreat. I would love to come back in the winter, lounge on the patios and not have to go to work!

Sharon was very engaged and wonderful to work with. Upon our arrival she made us feel very comfortable and welcome. She was always available for advice about things to do in the area.

I strongly recommend this one. Totally 5 out of 5 stars!
