Grayhawk of Scottsdale Association Tips for Buyers Sellers and Realtors

As most are aware there are 3 amazing subdivisions within Grayhawk as a whole each with their own character and style of home and amenities to be offered. Broken down as follows The Park at Grayhawk and The Retreat at Grayhawk which is all gated and has 2 sections The Raptor Retreat on the Raptor Golf Course, and the Talon Retreat on the Talon golf course.

What a lot of people don't know are the subtleties of this community and as such there are rules and regulations, I would like to call "Tips and Tricks" to selling or buying in this community.

Realtor Registration in Grayhawk

A Realtor must be registered with the Association and must have the registration form, drivers license and business card at the gated community entrances the first time you access the properties.  At which time you will be given a guest pass for the day after that your business card will suffice. Forms are enclosed here 2011 Realtor Package
