The convenient location of Verde Vista makes it a popular property that is consistently 100% occupied,” said Butler.

The property is located at 3030 North 35th Avenue in Phoenix, Arizona. “Verde Vista is located in close proximity to Highway 60, and Interstate 10 and 17, which provide access to all parts of the valley and local employers in the surrounding areas.
