Residents since 2005
Since moving to Rancho Sahuarita in November of 2005, Chrissi Gomez has wasted no time getting involved in the community. Originally from Norwalk, a city in southern California (not far from Disneyland), she and her husband P.J. had been in search of a smaller town that would serve as a nice place to raise their son Matthew. Having a passion and strong desire to make a difference, Chrissi quickly found a variety of ways to do just that in Sahuarita.

Residents since 2011
Bryan and Joy Hopper are 9-year residents enjoying life in Rancho Sahuarita. They both have long careers in the Air Force and chose to move to Arizona to be closer to family. They had 3 days to find a house and looked at multiple areas in the surrounding communities of Tucson. Bryan said after they saw Rancho Sahuarita their decision was easy because the amenities and nearby stores and restaurants at the Rancho Sahuarita Marketplace appealed to them.
Building a Connected Community
Our founder, Bob Sharpe created Rancho Sahuarita as a bridge between the built environment and how, when activated, it can foster human connection.
Drawing inspiration from his childhood building block experiences, Bob set out to design a place where families could come together and truly enjoy community living. With attractive architecture, tree-lined streets, and inviting outdoor spaces, Rancho Sahuarita was carefully crafted to encourage interactions among neighbors and promote a spirit of connection.
Today, Rancho Sahuarita thrives as a close-knit and growing community. With over 18,000 residents and 5,700 homes, it stands as a testament to Bob’s vision and dedication to building a community where meaningful connections are cultivated, and residents can truly feel at home.
