How much did Marissa and Brandon Ryff want to live in their home at Camelot Homes’ Heirloom at Morrison Ranch in Gilbert?
They purchased a house a half-mile away so they could keep an eye on it. Well, not exactly “it” because it didn’t exist yet. It was a promise. With a view. “We knew they were developing near the silos. We wanted the silos to be our view and when we saw they were about to build, we jumped on it,” Marissa said of their home that grants picturesque views of the iconic Gilbert Silos from nearly every room.
Brandon is a Tempe native, but Marissa is from Michigan, where silos are a much more common sight. These provided a taste of home that she craved.
An award-winning Scottsdale luxury homebuilder is unveiling five new communities across the Valley. The expansion will add more than 100 new luxury homes throughout the area at a time when existing home sales for homebuyers and lot supply for homebuilders are dwindling.
The Villas. It sounds glamorous; it sounds relaxing; it almost sounds whimsical. And that is exactly what it is. The Villas at Seven Desert Mountain by Camelot Homes is yet another up-and-coming strong of residences in Scottsdale.
Camelot Homes announces its Valley-wide expansion with the opening of five new luxury home communities, which will add more than 100 new homes to the greater Phoenix area. The communities, named Paradigm, Shadow Ridge, Skye View, Stone Crest and Willow, range in location from North Scottsdale to North Central Phoenix to South Gilbert and will all begin presales this summer.
“Now with Zoom calls, wall treatments are very important,” says Leslie Walker, design studio manager at Camelot Homes. “Everything from painted wainscoting and wallpaper to a gallery wall of art or decorated shelves, it’s all about the backdrop.”
It was as good a house as any to test out the market after the pandemic hit. Custom-built with insane views of Seattle and an easy drive into downtown Bellevue, but just far enough out to keep the urbanity at arm’s length. In every other way the house was like others JayMarc Homes was selling before 2020 happened: high end, high quality, and high ticket, with a location that hyped being both “in it” and “away from it all” at the same time. So in July, with the housing market rebounding out of a pandemic-induced pause, JayMarc listed the property with fingers crossed. The house sold that day for $4.8 million.
Camelot Homes is proud to announce industry veteran Kevin Rosinski as its new Chief Operating Officer. Rosinski brings more than 25 years of homebuilding experience to his new position with the luxury Arizona homebuilder. He is replacing Camelot Homes’ current COO, Tom Kirk, who will be focusing solely on his role as CFO.
Judges for The 2021 National Housing Quality Award® (NHQA), sponsored by Pro Builder magazine, have named Camelot Homes the winner of a Bronze Award for the company’s commitment to the highest level of operational excellence and quality in the housing industry. Camelot was one of only four honorees this year and is the only Arizona-based company to be named to the list.
Julie Hancock, managing director and co-owner of Camelot Homes, in Scottsdale, Ariz., also a Bronze Award winner, echoes that sentiment. “Even before we got the report, we knew from the judges some of the things it would say, and we started working on those right away.”
To celebrate its 50th anniversary in business, Arizona-based Camelot Homes donated $50,000 for endowed scholarships for Herberger Institute students. A $25,000 scholarship was earmarked for students of ASU’s new popular music program, a bachelor’s degree concentration in the School of Music. A second $25,000 scholarship is available to students studying in any of the five schools of the Herberger Institute. In addition, the School of Music and the family-owned homebuilder joined forces to establish the Camelot Homes-ASU School of Music Concert Series, underwritten by a $10,000 gift from Camelot Homes and featuring music students.
Juliet Justice has used a wheelchair to get around since she was 8. She became really good at maneuvering spaces that were not quite — or even far from being — able to accommodate her.
And she was OK with it.
“My parents really encouraged me to do what I can with what I have. They encouraged me to think creatively,” said Justice, who exudes a sunny disposition and beaming smile. “Learning to live in homes that weren’t ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) compliant made me really creative.”
In fact, none of the houses Justice lived in were fully compliant. Until now.
That changed in January when Justice and her family moved into their new home by Camelot Homes at Heirloom at Morrison Ranch in Gilbert.

Scottsdale’s thriving economy is driving its housing market, and that market is a competitive yet welcoming place for new residents. According to Zillow, the median price of homes in the city amounts to more than $400,000, and it’s expected to continue to rise in the coming decade. Arizona is beautiful, Scottsdale is hoping, and a lot of people are showing an interest in relocating.
Taking housing as a barometer of the economy, Metro Phoenix is looking pretty good. Multifamily developments, especially, seem to be sprouting on every block, and one of the biggest complaints heard in development circles is there is a shortage of construction workers — a situation exacerbated by the fact that the construction sector has shown the greatest growth rate (12.7 percent).
