who we are

By researching emerging trends in terms of housing product and developing growth areas, the Franks have been able to navigate changes in the market throughout the various cycles in the Arizona real estate economy over the years. Having experience developing single-family homes, condominiums, luxury garden apartments and high-density urban apartments provides the Franks with a unique ability to capitalize on strengths in the marketplace as they develop.  As growth changes the boundaries of the Phoenix metropolis, the Franks are able to identify developing opportunities.  Research into new developments in architecture and construction help make communities developed by the Franks more lasting and sustainable.  Projects developed over forty years ago remain beautiful, viable properties.  Each community is adapted to the geography, demographics and architecture of the particular neighborhood, which avoids the cookie-cutter look that many production builders create.
