Robson Resort Communities offers a luxurious lifestyle for active adults.

Robson Resort Communities has been building active adult communities for over 40 years. Focusing on this niche, the company has constructed six gated resort-style communities in Arizona and one in Texas. The builder prides itself on developing high-quality construction and providing a luxurious living experience to its homebuyers.

Commitment to Quality and Personalization

Robson distinguishes itself as being committed to long-term sustainability, marketing the company as one that is focused on superior quality construction using only the best materials. Robson homes are built with an attention to detail and craftsmanship.

Additionally, Robson also allows for homebuyers’ input to customize their new luxury homes with a high degree of personalization by providing a dedicated Design Center that has an interactive online component called “iDesigner”. Homebuyers are not only buying the home of their dreams but are able to have a hand in creating it as well. The builder encourages buyers to provide input, ask questions, suggest features, and ask for a “wish list”.

Focus on Energy Efficiency

Robson also places emphasis on energy efficiency to help residents save money. New homes have a lower-than-average HERS (Home Energy Rating System) index. The lower the score – the better. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, existing homes often rate 130 on this index, and new homes average around 100. New homes in Robson Resort Communities have scores lower than 73 on this scale.
