In the Press

  • Midcentury Masterpieces

    “Built in 1989, this recently restored 2,686-square-foot one-story is a site-sensitive ‘machine for the desert,’ explains Scott Jarson, co-principal of azarchitecture/Jarson & Jarson Real Estate. Hence, abundant natural light flows inside without increasing heat, even with the architect’s pioneering use of extensive glazing in the Valley. Beadle designed and built homes exemplifying indoor-outdoor living long before the concept became colloquial in Arizona. ‘This is an example of a master architect on top of his game, drawing together decades of experience in an effort that seems completely effortless.'”

  • Real Modern

    “Abandoning cookie-cutter, traditional home sales in sprawling suburbs, the Jarsons discovered their niche. ‘We found we enjoyed working with unique homes, from vintage ranch homes and historic adobes to cutting-edge modern designs,’ Debbie explains. The choice was a pioneering one for Valley real estate. At first, many in the local real estate industry jeered rather than cheered. ‘No one at the time liked modern designs or houses by pioneer architects like Haver, which were getting stuccoed over,’ Scott explains. The switch to architecturally unique homes, though, has paid off for the Jarsons. Now they hear cheers—in sales and salutes.”

  • Dramatic desert modern home asks $1.2M in Arizona

    Another stunning example of desert modernism by architect William P. Bruder, FAIA, is on the market, this time in Cave Creek, Arizona, 27 miles northeast of Phoenix. Completed in 2005, the Pond House is so-named for its 5.67-acre riverbank site, where a sometimes swimming hole feeds a river, or stands still as a pond, or, in dry times, acts as “a rememberance of water.”

  • Meet Scott and Debbie Jarson

    “Our real estate careers began in the mid 1980’s. I followed Debbie into the world of real estate sales and together we have a vibrant and serious career that included all aspects of the industry. We were always dedicated and quickly built a strong personal following as general sales agents. We achieved great success and recognition with a number of sales awards.

    However, our passions always included an eye for design. At one point, we felt that we had to make a change in direction. I was beginning to feel bad about things: in dealing with basic builder homes we had become to feel that we were just ‘part of the problem’.”
