Land Development – from Concept to Completion


We have our business office at SOHO and love the modern, eco-friendly architecture and open peaceful space. This location is ideal as it is close to great shopping and restaurants without the hassle of crowds and traffic. SOHO offers a secure environment and close-knit community that is something we value and very much appreciate.

I am so happy during my research of property in Scottsdale to have found Soho! My husband and I are so looking forward in living part-time in this modern, beautiful, well planned project. We were looking for something different, easy to maintain when we are traveling and so happy to have found this project. Love the artistic innovation plan of the Live/Work loft and Townhome development. The new technology with the Gigablast from Cox will work well as my husband works from home and this will make a very easy access for him. Irene has been wonderful to work with and has addressed our every need.

The amenities of having the first floor restaurant, bakery etc. will be a fun addition to make for a quick easy stop to purchase what you need, rather than having to leave your community. We are more than excited to move into our new residence. Hopefully very soon.

When my wife and I were looking for an upscale urban home that we could downsize to, in a neighborhood we would consider home- it was a daunting task for us. We didn’t know where to begin or what questions to ask.

As our search became focused in the Tempe area, we identified several home options that had some of the items our relocation checklist. That was until we found the home on 421 West. It absolutely met all of our requirements and then some. The location was perfect for our family and we were able to work with the team to add unique features to the home, to truly make it ours.

The best part was that we completely enjoyed the professionalism and dedication the 421 West team had throughout the process. The only regret we had was not working with the 421 West team on purchasing the home sooner. We definitely recommend the 421 West team when looking for your next upscale urban home.

I recently purchased a town home at 421 West 6th Street, Tempe, Arizona from Catclar. Based upon my experience with Catclar, I am pleased to provide this letter of recommendation.

I am a developer myself and have developed, from the ground up, more than 300 condominium units over the last ten years.  Accordingly, I am well acquainted with development and construction.  It has been a pleasure dealing with Catclar, in all respects, throughout the design and purchase process.  But I would like to note two specific attributes in particular: First, the quality of our town home is outstanding. Most importantly, the quality of what the consumer cannot see (i.e., plumbing, insulation and everything “behind the walls”) is first rate. I visited the site throughout the build process and can attest to the fact that no corner was cut and every effort was made to provide an exceptional product.  The attention to detail was truly impressive. Second, Catclar was completely receptive and responsive to our desires throughout  the “punch list” process prior to closing.  Each item that we suggested needed to be “tweaked” (and there were not many) was attended to quickly and professionally, without complaint.  This is a company that proudly stands behind their product and values their relationships.  We are very pleased with our purchase.

Irene Clary, acting as Manager for Clarendon Estates project, successfully acquired, rezoned, developed, acquired financing, and built 11 luxury town homes in the Town of Carefree. The town homes were successfully sold off the plans and were built to the satisfaction of the community.

Irene also managed a second project known as Parklawn homes, which consisted of 162 residential lots. This condominium building, which is comprised of 100 units, also housed an underground parking structure for The Hotel Valley Ho. Irene successfully found solutions to design the structure to the satisfaction of the luxury hotel owner and to design the condo building using unique design measures.

Both projects were successful and well received by the Municipalities that they were built in. The funding entity was very pleased by the well managed process of the projects.

I acted as the investment partner on both projects and was very pleased with the returns generated.
Jerry Moyes, Investment Partner
Catclar and I were partners in a high-end residential land deal which, because of their tenacity and hard work, generated a 50% return in a 6-month period. Catclar successfully negotiated the acquisition, entitlement and ultimate sale of the zoned lots to a residential builder.

Catclar has an exceptional ability to create projects out of the most complicated land parcels using their talent to secure the land, obtain the highest possible density through unbelievable negotiations with City Officials and ultimately City Council, and to obtain the required financing and sell the end product.

Catclar has interacted on behalf of our company in all aspects of residential land transactions, including land deal negotiations, municipal approvals and financing, most of which were fairly complex in nature. They have an excellent ability to obtain the highest and best use for the land, negotiate on our behalf with the Seller and deal most effectively with City Council.

Catclar has done outstanding work for our company and we highly recommend their abilities to any developer/investment partner.

Catclar was very tenacious in their approach and worked very closely with Maricopa County, The City of Surprise and surrounding neighbors to achieve their support and ultimate approval of the proposed Master Planned Community… they worked very hard to achieve success. They were able to complete their tasks in a very expeditious manner and were very pleasant to work with in all phases of the development process.

Irene is a true business professional. Her attention to detail is impeccable. I found that one of Irene's strengths was her uncanny way of solving any issues that may have risen. Her management and people skills were tested on a daily basis. We all know that communication is key, and Irene was the catalyst that kept everything on track.
