Fortune Small Business Magazine ranks Scottsdale #25 in its "100 Best Places to Live and Launch"

Real Estate Agent with Realty ONE Group

In April of 2008, the Fortune Small Business magazine published a list outlining the "100 Best Places to Live and Launch" in the United States. The winners were rated on lifestyle as well as business climate for small business owners. Scottsdale came in at number 25.

According to the magazine, Scottsdale ranked high on culture, nightlife, tourism and a large base of entrepreneurs. Where we fell short was on competition and the high cost to lease commercial space. 

The city that took the top honor in the list was Bellevue, Washington. Other Arizona cities that made the list were Oro Valley (outside of Tucson) at number 44 and Prescott at number 92.

Nice Post and great place to live Scottsdale,  I hope to meet you sometime, as I'm doing a Class in June for FHA if you are interested as I posted in today on the rain.


I'm going to make an office visit and to see if I can start earning some of your business.

Scottsdale is beautiful. I am local, but didn't realized how it ranked nationally.
