Meet The Developers

Deco Communities is proud to continue a long-standing tradition of innovating, quality real estate development and a commitment to homeowner satisfaction that is second to none.  Formerly operating under the Starpointe marquee, one of the largest and most respected real estate development companies in Arizona, the Scottsdale-based Deco Communities continues to blaze new trails with the legacy of one of the most trusted names in the industry.

In business since 1996, the Deco team built one of the largest and most respected residential real estate development companies in Arizona.  With over 3,500 homes sold and numerous mixed-use and commercial projects completed, Deco has set the standard for infill development in the Valley.  In addition to its condominium developments, the group owns and operates the 27-hole Starfire Golf Club in Scottsdale, Arizona and has owned and operated various hotels, retail shopping centers, and office buildings.

Specializing in urban infill development, Deco has assembled a team of industry-leading designers and architects to develop three distinctive for-sale housing projects, all launching in Metro Phoenix: Envy Residences, super-prime condominiums in Scottsdale's Entertainment District; Edison Midtown, its hip counterpart in Central Phoenix; as well as Inspire Downtown Scottsdale, an oasis for the bold and playful.  In addition to its for-sale brands, Deco is the developer of the Cabana apartment portfolio, an often-copied, iconic rental brand with properties in Phoenix, Tempe and Las Vegas.

The principals of Deco, Robert Lyles, Patricia Watts, and Daniel Richards, collectively have more than 75 years of experience in the Valley's residential market.  They have completed numerous commercial and mixed-use projects and created more than 3,500 homes and counting, winning various awards and recognitions from municipal, industry, and charitable organizations.
