It’s here; it’s here!!! The 2017 Readers’ Choice Awards issue is here! Let me start out by first saying congratulations to all the businesses that were nominated in each category. From dentists to dog groomers, baked goods to boutiques, we had a great list of candidates that you, our readers, suggested.

Once we narrowed it down to the finalists, it became apparent we have some devoted fans of the businesses and services offered in and around the Paradise Valley, Arcadia and Biltmore areas. We had thousands of votes and lots of inquiries as to who the winners were, and we’re thrilled to be the publishers of such a dynamically driven and devoted community.

Special shoutouts to our current partners that won. How exciting, and what an honor, that we get to promote them month after month!

February is also a busy month, with travelers in and out of the Valley. We have a great resource, a home concierge service for homeowners to take worry off their plate when away. That peace of mind can be very valuable.

As the new year continues to unfold, please be sure to check out, visit and support our Readers’ Choice Award winners. Congratulations again to all! Thank you for being involved in our wonderful communities.

Here’s to a great month (don’t forget Valentine’s Day!)

Wishing you a wonderful February,
