Mark-Taylor Now Manages BB Living’s New Gilbert Community Featuring Luxury Rental Single-Family Townhomes


Mark-Taylor will manage BB Living at Val Vista, a community featuring an emerging real estate trend – luxury, single-family rental homes. BB Living at Val Vista is the sixth and largest property that BB Living Residential has built to date.

“Mark-Taylor is proud to manage BB Living at Val Vista and partner with the leader in single-family “Build to Rent” communities– which are in such high demand right now,” said John Carlson, president of Mark-Taylor Residential. “This Gilbert gem is located in one of the East Valley’s most popular locations, just minutes from San Tan Village’s premier shopping, dining and entertainment options, with a multitude of top employers nearby.”

BB Living at Val Vista comprises 217 homes and is located just south of the 202 and Germann, near SanTan Village. The community offers three- and four-bedroom floor plans ranging from 1,600 – 2,200 square feet. BB Living at Val Vista is the first BB Living community that is a stand-alone community; similar projects in the region are typically part of master-planned communities, including previous communities at Vistancia and Verrado and a new community under construction at Eastmark.


“This community is the perfect spot for young families who want to be in the center of it all. BB Living at Val Vista will provide the best of both worlds with the high caliber amenities, lifestyle and service of a luxury apartment complex, but the benefits and space of single-family living,” said BB Living President Branden Lombardi. “Plus, the location is ideal. The community is part of the top ranked Gilbert School District, near Mercy Gilbert Hospital and its proximity to the 202 freeway means residents can easily access any part of the Valley.”

BB Living at Val Vista’s luxuriously modern interiors include first floor nine-foot ceilings, granite counter tops, upgraded flooring, two tone paint and a contemporary look and feel. Every home also includes an attached two-car garage. BB Living at Val Vista also features a fitness center, pool and spa, splash pad, playgrounds, pocket parks, walking trails and a dog park. The area itself is a hotspot for growing families. In addition to a top-ranked school district, there are numerous retail options, family-friendly restaurants, the Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport and Chandler-Gilbert Community College nearby.
