Located in one of Scottsdale’s most exclusive guard-gated golf communities, this gorgeous residence in the Verandah’s offers over 9,500 sf and includes features such as dual kitchens, a media/entertainment wing, elevator, guest casita, sport court and mountain views.
Chateau On Central’s unique-to-Phoenix architecture and timeless luxury create a true urban live-work space that has brought interest from buyers nationally and internationally. Its integration with downtown Phoenix’s art, music and restaurant scenes provide true urban living to residents in a city that is still developing the urban lifestyle that has become the sought-after, modern choice for the nation’s top cities.
“This opportunity to work with Sotheby’s will allow us to reach a large audience of international buyers,” said Dave Clark, chairman for Volo Holdings and Chateau On Central developer. “Arizona continues to be one of the top states for second home purchases and we want to show those buyers what Phoenix has to offer.”
Sotheby’s International Realty has long been a staple for luxury real estate connoisseurs, which made the 2008 partnership with the established 60-year-old Russ Lyon Realty Company an ideal fit. Beginning in 1744 with the Sotheby’s Auction House, the well-known brand has earned prestige as a marketer of the world’s most valuable and fine possessions. Sotheby’s International Realty was launched in 1976 with the same commitment to luxury and exceptional service to clients with the goal to unite extraordinary homes with extraordinary lives. The company markets worldwide and will focus a large part of its efforts for Chateau On Central to buyers from outside of Arizona.
“Chateau On Central is a flagship community for Phoenix’ growing urban lifestyle and accurately represents the Russ Lyon Sotheby’s International Realty brand,” said Monica Monson, Scottsdale luxury real estate expert and founder of Monson Luxury Group at Russ Lyon | Sotheby’s International Realty. “We take great pride in our clients, offering a true marketing and sales partnership, and with Chateau On Central offering these amazing brownstones, we look forward to introducing it to our national and international buyers.”
Chateau On Central offers residents a sophisticated 21-residence brownstone community. Homes start from $1.1 million and range in size starting from 5,200 square feet. All of the homes feature gourmet kitchens with Viking appliances, 2-car garages, a personal elevator and private roof-top patio. Options available include designer/architectural services, furniture built-ins and flex space for optional home theater, gallery, wine cellar or game room.

Interviewed this week and aired on Wednesday, Monica Monson talks with ‘The List’ host Brien McElhatten (@thelistbrien) about the luxury real estate market in North Scottsdale. They toured one of our premiere listings in Silverleaf and discussed the lack of inventory and longevity of the current market conditions. A fun day and some great exposure for our sellers!
Top-producing Scottsdale luxury real estate agent Tom Locati and his 7-year partner Barry Van Patten, of Russ Lyon Sotheby’s International Realty, have joined forces with luxury marketing expert Monica Monson, founder of Monson Luxury Group at Russ Lyon Sotheby’s International Realty.
As Russ Lyon Sotheby’s International Realty’s #1 agent for the past six years and ranked four times by the Wall Street Journal’s list of top 50 REALTORS® in the United States by sales volume (most recently 2011), Locati has decided it’s time to step back from the day-to-day operations of his real estate business to pursue other interests. Monson and Van Patten will be taking the reigns and will be leading the way for continued success by joining forces and providing an exclusive marketing platform for their current and future clients.
“I have been very fortunate in the real estate business over the past 9 years. It is with much consideration that I am stepping back from day-to-day operations but I am excited about the opportunities that lie ahead for Monson Luxury Group. Monica and Barry are consummate professionals and each have years of experience and talent in the luxury market,” says Locati. “It doesn’t get any better than this.”
Monson and Van Patten decided to join forces so they could bring the most exclusive luxury real estate experience to their buyers and sellers. Not only will their luxury home marketing program be second to none, their buyer’s can feel confident that they are getting the most out of the buying process.
“For Sellers, it’s like having their own marketing agency on hand to best represent their unique property. Every home has a story. With our expertise, we not only have the pleasure of telling the story but we do so with an eye for quality and our program targets affluent audiences in print, online and socially. Like any fine brand…there’s never a compromise.” says Monson.
“I’m thrilled with the transition. When you have two groups that offer the highest level of customer care, integrity and ethics, and years of experience with high-net worth clients, it just makes sense. The possibilities are endless and our clients will greatly benefit,” says Van Patten.
Monica and Van Patten, along with the support of Locati, will continue to pave the way for luxury real estate in the Valley. Monson Luxury Group also includes real estate agents Stewart Downey, Barry Van Patten II and full-time licensed assistant and concierge Alisha Collinson.
