Scottsdale Luxury Home Tour RMS meetings are the 3rd Thursday of each month at Ancala Country Club

No pre-registration is required to attend. Attendance at an RMS (REALTOR® Marketing Session) is a great way to network, hear from great speakers, and learn about the market. If you’d like to be reminded about the Desert Ridge RMS meetings, sign up for our e-mails. If you have any questions, contact one of our volunteers on the “Contacts” tab below.
NOTE Affiliate/industry partners must be paid SAAR Affiliate members to attend.

  5. Agents are responsible for immediately notifying the Tour Director of any change in the listings’ status (e.g. to “Pending, Cancelled or Expired”).
  6. A week before each tour, the homes that have been scheduled for the upcoming tour will be confirmed.
