Welcome to Dobson Ranch

A historic piece of Arizona.

Dobson Ranch

If one community encapsulates the amazing growth that occurred in Arizona in the second half of the 20th century, it's Dobson Ranch. These 2,000 acres in Mesa were once raw desert, then became a thriving working cattle ranch, and by the mid-1970s, was transformed into a master-planned community complete with a golf course. Nearly 15,000 people call Dobson Ranch home today.

While Dobson Ranch was considered remote in its early days, today it's conveniently and centrally located in the heart of Mesa off Dobson Road just south of Baseline Road. With Loop 101 and U.S. Highway 60 just a mile away to the west and north respectively, residents of Dobson Ranch can quickly find their way to downtown Phoenix, the airport and beyond. The quick-growing East Valley enclaves of Chandler and Gilbert are just minutes away as well, as are Tempe and Ahwatukee.

What To Expect


Affordable homes ranging from townhomes all the way to gated enclaves of large single-family homes.

Dobson Ranch

Dobson Ranch was originally envisioned as being a city within a city. Housing units comprised everything from apartments to single-family homes and even a gated community. The enclaves were connected by a series of lakes that transformed the brown desert into an arid paradise. Parcels also were developed for retail shopping, healthcare and education. Today, the vision remains a reality as Dobson Ranch remains self-sustaining.

What Not To Expect

Constant change or the bustle of development.

Tree-lined streets, quick freeway access and a significantly shorter commute than what many other East Valley workers experience.

Dobson Ranch

Among Dobson Ranch's most desirable elements are the lakeside homes that line the community. Any waterfront property in the Phoenix area is rare and Dobson Ranch offers homeowners the opportunity to find a waterfront home that's not only affordable, but also in an established community with a unique history. For those looking for a little less property to maintain, waterfront townhomes also are available in the Dobson Ranch master-plan.
