Walt Danley Realty Presents
Welcome to the 23rd issue of Portfolio Magazine. Summer is so close to being over. It’s rough, I know.
However, there is something special about the unique scent of the desert after a monsoon storm. It’s
almost like a reward for bearing the brunt of the heat. While we wait for the oven to cool down we
focus on our sensational list of properties this summer. While it’s a bit too hot for a hike, it’s the perfect
time to sit down with a cool drink and take a trip through Portfolio.
We’re featuring several outstanding properties in this issue. The first featured property, on page 10,
is a piece of heaven in Clearwater Hills. “Mountainside Masterpiece” on page 14 highlights a lovely

18. “Santa Barbara Style Elegance” features a Santa Barbara with lush grounds and made for outdoor
entertaining is found on page 32.
On page 26, our Creative Director, Gary Edlund, touches base with one of the Valley’s most prestigious
interior design companies in the Valley, Est Est, Inc. The article is a question and answer session he had
with them to give you some insight into the complex world of interior design. Plus, he explores one of
their more recent, and truly amazing, projects at Baker Park.
