Monica Monson Interviewed by Scott Pasmore of 3TV for Good Morning Arizona’s Million Dollar Listing Segment for this Scottsdale Home
categories: luxury real estate, Scottsdale Living
 
 

Monson Luxury Group is always thinking of new ways to market luxury homes and when the opportunity came up to showcase our listing at 9780 E. Gary Road in Scottsdale, we couldn’t pass it up. A little fun, humor and a fabulous tour, you’ll not only discover all of the fabulous features of this special residence you’ll also get to see a showcase on the outdoor living spaces and jaw-dropping pool.

monicascott Inside we explored the beautiful kitchen with custom cabinetry, hidden appliances, and the grand daddy of stoves – the wolf 60″ double oven with 6 burner cooktop and grill – and then the 800+ custom carved wine cellar. On we went to the game room with retractable glass wall overlooking the backyard and cigar lounge, the arcade, full bar and powder bath (complete with a urinal for the man of the house). Then off to the master retreat we discovered the spacious bedroom and sitting area surrounding a large Canterra fireplace and the spa bath with the “car wash” style shower that includes body jets, rain shower head, two wall mount heads and steam shower. Across the way movie lovers will enjoy a theater with reclining seats for 8, dramatic powder bath and wet bar with microwave and refrigerated drawers to satisfy any cravings. Off to the backyard we went with the glass tile pool with 9-seat swim up bar, rain curtains, water and fire features….and oh, did I mention the sunken outdoor family room with 2nd BBQ area and sport court? Play golf on the putting green or take a few swings in the batting cage, there’s surely something for everyone. As if that’s not enough, the 1,150 sf guest casita has two bedrooms and baths and a spacious family room. And, for auto lovers – you’ll get a kick out of the automated underground car vault, limo bay and lift.

TOM LOCATI AND BARRY VAN PATTEN JOIN FORCES WITH MONSON LUXURY GROUP AT RUSS LYON SOTHEBY’S INTERNATIONAL REALTY
categories: luxury real estate, Market News, Scottsdale Living
 
 

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.
