At Sonora West we never lose focus on the most important part of our business: making our homeowners happy. We are honored to work with so many fine people over the past 15 years. It is a privilege to be part of their life and help them create a custom home they can be proud of. Because of this, there is no greater reward for us at Sonora West than the praise of a brand new homeowner. Here are some honest testimonials of homeowners who are part of the Sonora West family.

What Our Clients Are Saying

We first visited our Sonora West home during an open house and it was love at first sight. The Cape Cod style with its classic details, amazing kitchen (and I mean amazing) and those gleaming wood floors were right out of a design magazine. Coming from the East Coast, this classic style spoke to me. The natural light streaming through the mullioned windows was magical. The kids were already running through the house picking their rooms.

The Master bathroom was better than the Ritz and my husband and I were smitten. This small town girl could never have imagined that I would call a property like this, my home. My husband was all dollars and cents about it, but I was already deciding where to put the Christmas tree!

After move-in we settled down to family life and getting to know our neighbors and new community. There were lemonade stands, playing catch in the front yard, and my husband teaching the kids how to slide into home plate on those smooth wood floors.

Entertaining our friends throughout the year and hosting our neighborhood progressive dinner gave us opportunities to share our home with others. Tree trimming, sipping hot chocolate and watching holiday movies with the kids became family traditions.

One Saturday a note was placed in our mailbox from a Phoenix location scout stating that our home and front yard would be a perfect backdrop for a Claritin Allergy commercial and to give her a call. She said our home had that “Anywhere USA look” and was perfect for commercials.

I showed it to my husband and even though it had references we could contact, he was skeptical. I on the other hand (glass half full type of gal) called the references and was told the scout was a veteran in the industry and completely legitimate. Long story short, that was the first of over 40 commercials and catalog shoots we have hosted in our home.Not only was our home a beautiful place to raise our children, and hang our hat, it was a money maker!

There was so much detail and decision making that went into this home. Nothing was overlooked. I still walk through the house and notice the way sunlight streams through a window at a certain time of the day, or a detail that went unnoticed that is now catching my eye. We never took this home for granted. It was an amazing gift to live here. Almost like being a good steward so we could pass it along to another growing family.

Our children are grown and gone, and now we have found another SWD home to hang our hat. A little smaller and right sized for our lifestyle, but beautiful and detailed just the same. We can’t wait to start this next chapter in our SWD home.

We picked Sonora West Development for the value they would bring to the building process. Specifically, the owner Scott Pfeiffer, has a wonderful design sense and he is an honest builder. We loved his creativity with building — since my wife is the queen of building herself and worked exceptionally well with Scott on all details and finishes.

We focused on the design as a key ingredient before any building began so we would have minimal changes in the field that were structural in nature — but Sonora absolutely added positive changes for window placements and sizes. They were a great team that works well together for total value. Sonora West provided a high quality high value solution for home design and building in today’s highly competitive market place. We are very pleased with our outcomes and our final home.

Sonora West builds amazing homes but doesn’t break your bank. Scott and his team find a way to get the job done no matter what the obstacles become. Scott’s eye for home building is the best in the business. We were blown away at his vision and unique style. Sonora West knew we had a budget and never let us get out of the box. We got our dream home, stayed in budget, and our house was done before our due date. Credit to the internal team from finance, design, and decorating as they worked around the clock and we’re always available for questions. Wondered if they slept sometimes! Not sure you will find the quality home and all the other things anywhere else. Nice job guys!
— Michael and Amanda Sessions, Silverleaf - Arcadia
Sonora West built us a new home in the Silverleaf/Arcadia area. Solid process and approach from upfront planning, architecture, dealing with the different stakeholders (city, DC Ranch HOA, etc), all the way through the build and completion. Attention to detail and the little things were critical. Communication was very good throughout the process. Most importantly, we held them to a very tight, some would say impossible, timeline and they worked to meet it.
— Joe and Melissa Fisher, Silverleaf - Arcadia
Scott was great to work with. He has a fine eye for detail and design. Scott was a man of his word and solution focused throughout the entire building process. He does not cut corners, only accepting top quality from his vendors. We would build with him again!
— Jim and Kathy Reavey, Silverleaf - Windgate
Sonora West built our home in the Cavallo 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.

My wife and I had Sonora West Development build our first custom home. We love it. My experience working with Sonora West Development was so good the first time that I decided to have them build a second home for us. They completed the construction ON TIME and ON BUDGET! This made all of us very happy.

Scott made the home building experience simple and nearly stress free. Their hands-on approach and their attention to detail ensures they deliver a superior product at a nice value.
