Condos to be built near Scottsdale Healthcare Osborn

Condominium development finally is coming to a property near Scottsdale Healthcare Osborn Medical Center after a previous project stalled for nearly a decade.

Real homebuyers and sellers don't care about you or about your website. They just want to buy or sell a home.
