Welcome to the Web Site devoted to Phoenix Arizona zip code 85018. 85018 is home to the very desirable Arcadia neighborhoods as well as parts of Camelback Mountain. 85018 is centrally located so it is easy to get to Old Scottsdale, the Esplanade, and downtown Phoenix. During high school I lived next door in 85251 on the Phoenician Golf Course and while I attended Brophy, my three brothers all attended Arcadia High School. Today many of my friends and family still live in Arcadia so I am very familiar with the area. I am also a member of the Luxury Home Tour and personally see over 200 multi-million dollar luxury estate homes every year so I am also familiar with home values in the area.
