Scott’s journey to becoming one of the most respected and accomplished custom homebuilders in the Valley started from a summer job as a framing carpenter during his college years. Upon graduating from Arizona State University with a degree in Finance, he was hired as a Superintendent with U.S. Home and enjoyed a successful tenure at the company. He proceeded to take a Project Management position at Desert Winds Development and was quickly promoted to Vice President, becoming the driving force behind the company’s emergence as a top custom homebuilder in Paradise Valley during the 1990’s. During this time he honed his skills and ability to create a superior custom home in a timely manner while respecting the client’s budgets and needs.

Scott founded Sonora West Development in 2001.  Since Sonora West's inception, the company has successfully completed over 150 custom home projects in the most desirable and exclusive communities in Scottsdale, Paradise Valley and throughout the entire Phoenix area. His unwavering commitment to superb craftsmanship, superior design, and outstanding customer service has earned him and Sonora West the reputation as Master Builder.   

Today his visionary real estate and business acumen has Sonora West Development well positioned moving into the future. His successful business model and commitment to excellence has allowed the company to thrive for 15 years. But above all, it is his relentless focus on customer satisfaction and collaborating with our homeowners that makes Sonora West the Valley's preferred custom homebuilder.   


Since 2001 Scott Pfeiffer has grown Sonora West into Arizona's most sought after luxury custom homebuilder. Scott founded Sonora West on the foundational pillars of attention to detail, strict adherence to the budget and a fully collaborative approach to home building.

Sonora West built our home in the Cavallo Estates subdivision. The true sign of a good experience is when you have an excellent relationship with your builder when the project is finished. We had a great experience working with Sonora’s decorator, all their vendors and subs. Our foreman, Todd, paid attention to every detail and 2 years later their response to any problem we may have at our home (which have been minor) has been taken care of with no questions asked. We highly recommend Sonora West.
