“The first thing I really appreciated about Dede was how personable she was and her empathy over the loss of my father. She was acquainted with him and knew about his health issues. She came to the house and gave me information about what I should fix, paint, etc. She recommended several local vendors and since I’m from California this was VERY helpful. She possessed an incredible amount of patience and was able to deal with FOUR heirs individually, which you can imagine presented problems due to lack of agreement. She was able to give all four of us our options and put it in terms we could understand. She was successful in steering us all to the best possible escrow agreement. We were all very pleased with how she successfully steered us through the “e-sign” contract process, septic repairs, roof repairs and other minor work that needed to be done to the property. We were also pleased that she worked with us on buyer & seller commissions, which we thought were quite fair. Ultimately, with Dede’s continual assistance we were able to sell the house for more than we believed we could sell it for! Dede is a genuinely sweet person and I would recommend her to family, friends or anyone else who needs to sell a home or property!!”

TEN stars! I could not have imagined there was any realtor out there who would actually provide such a truly excellent home-selling experience as Dede, Lauri and the rest of the folks at Garden Brook Realty gave us. After a very unpleasant prior experience in listing our property in Chino Valley with a large company, finding Dede was a breath of fresh air. I was totally impressed with her attention to detail and the many workable ideas she had for presenting and marketing our property. Have to say she’s something of a perfectionist and her thoroughness was reflected in all she did, including the professionally produced visual tour and the written description in our listing. Couldn’t have been more pleased in that from the day we listed with Dede, got a full-price offer, and handed our buyers the keys, it took less than two months. Again and again she impressed us by going above and beyond our expectations. I would be entirely comfortable recommending Dede and Garden Brook Realty to my closest friend or family member. – Craig Mathews

  • Helped me sell a home

As a first time home seller, I met with 4 realtors before choosing Dede. I chose to work with Dede because of her ability to clearly communicate complicated issues about the selling process, her local knowledge, vast selling experience, and her overall enthusiasm and approachability. I am extremely satisfied with her work.

We had a few unusual and complicated issues come up with the house after I moved out of state and Dede was always first on the scene with a solution in hand. She skillfully helped me navigate multiple bids so that I could sell the house for the most money and with the least amount of headache possible. In the end, she sold the house quickly and for more money than I expected. I would highly, highly recommend her to anyone looking for a realtor.

  • Helped me buy a home

We have purchased several properties with Dede as our agent. She is the hardest working agent I have ever known and goes the extra mile to make things work for both the buyer and the seller. She points out things that we would never think of even if it means not buying a particular property. She truly wanted us to get the property that would work the best for us in each occasion. We look forward to working with Dede in the future.

    • Helped me buy a home

    Dede spent many hours helping us look for a house. We had 3 houses we tried to buy and she did everything possible to help in procuring a house. After the first 2 didn’t work out she tirelessly worked to get us the one we finely did buy. Dede also helped us sell the house we moved out of.

    She is extremely helpful if you have any questions or concerns.

    We bought one house from Dede and plan to ask her to represent us on the sale of another. You won’t go wrong working with this agent. We highly recommend her.

Historic, fire-wise and close to the Prescott Courthouse Square, the Hassayampa Mountain Club is a popular place to buy a home.

The Hassayampa Mountain Club is a subdivision in southwest Prescott, Arizona, south of Copper Basin Road and west of White Spar Road.  It is not easy to provide distinct boundaries as there are 22 subdivision references associated with the Mountain Club: plats, replats, extensions and income units.  Some of it is within the City of Prescott and some in Yavapai County.

However, its history as the oldest planned community in Arizona (founded in 1926) and its location 1-2 miles to the Prescott Courthouse Square and downtown in beautiful mountainous Ponderosa Pine and Oak forest make this area highly desirable. 

The 478 homes are as varied as their occupants with small historic registry bungalows, quintessential Prescott cabins in the pines, and 4,000 square foot plus newer construction with views.  Prices range accordingly, from the $200,000s to $500,000s with many homes move-in ready and others in need of facelifts or significant renovations.

Wish to learn more about why historic, fire-wise and close to the Prescott Courthouse Square, the Hassayampa Mountain Club is a popular place to buy a home?  Read on!

Most homes are served by city water, natural gas, electric, cable and phone service.  Many have conventional septic systems while some have alternative septic systems due to challenges with percolation through the granite underlayment. 

The dues for the Hassayampa Mountain Club and its income units are currently $462 annually and they cover:

  • Special Trash pickups twice yearly: these trash and debris pickups encourage residents to clean up their properties to minimize fire risk and litter accumulation.  The Mountain Club is a firewise community.
  • Maintenance for water lines and meters which provide city water yet are outside of city limits
  • Use and maintenance of Mountain Club Clubhouse with community kitchen
  • Community park maintenance


The proliferation of VBROs (Vacation Rentals by Owner) and Air BnBs have led to a restriction on rental of residential properties for periods of less than 30 days (see
