Previously referred to as Queen Creek area of Pinal County, an Tan Heights, San Tan Foothills, Greater San Tan and simply the San Tan Area, the community lacked any official name and residents used nearby Queen Creek for their mailing addresses. To coincide with the addition of a new ZIP code for the community on July 1, 2009, the United States Postal Service was petitioned to provide the area with a new name. As part of the initial request, "Bella Vista" name was submitted to the postal service, drawing the ire of some local residents who opposed the suggested name. In response, the Greater San Tan Area Coalition organized a non-binding vote on June 23, offering residents the opportunity to vote on a name for the community, in which San Tan Valley was chossen.

Behind the gates of the private Encanterra Country Club residents have two community options to choose from - Encanterra, the all ages community, and Trilogy at Encanterra, the age restricted community. Home owners in both communities have access to the full lifestyle offering and amenities that Encanterra Country Club has to offer.   If wide-open space is key and bumper-to-bumper traffic cramps your style, the private refuge of Encanterra in the Southeast Valley is the perfect choice for you (and your convertible). The secluded community is positioned between the breath-taking Superstition Mountains and San Tan vistas with open air all around—yet it remains only a short jaunt from the I-60 and 202 freeways new homes (ranging from the high-$100,000’s to the mid-$400,000’s) are Shea Gree...

My wife and I are currently on a trip to Banff National Park in the Canadian Rockies in the province of Alberta. We have been here two days already and have seen much of the town of Banff on the Bow River. The weather has been perfect. What a romantic spot! The Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel is worth a visit--beautiful grounds; beautiful hotel! We went to see Mozart's opera Cosi Fan Tutte last evening at the wonderful Banff Centre. It was fantastic! Tonight we will take in a new opera called Lillian Alling, written by John Estacio and John Murrell. The town is bustling with tourists and the shopping is great with worthwhile sales in many of the shops. This is a great time of year to visit this little mountain town--near the end of summer. There are many attractions in Banff; horseback rid...

Janna Rankin Scharf, GRI, CLHMS, SFR - Coeur d'Alene, Idaho Homes for Sale First of all, I have never been able to figure out how to NOT say any words with my Wordless Wednesday posts.  I guess I'm just a "talker."  But I do manage to keep the word count down to a minimum... While visiting my nephew in beautiful Banff this past Easter, we drove by the place he lived until just recently.  Honest to goodness, this is the intersection he lived at, and this is the actual street sign.  How much fun it would be to be able to give these directions to my house, "I live at the corner of Rabbit and Squirrel!"  All of the streets in this area had animal names.  I snapped a few before the people in the car with me lost their enthusiasm to stop at every corner so I could take a picture and refused t...
