Topping the list of this week's priciest home sales in the Arizona Republic's real estate round-up is the Roses' acquisition of a $3.4 million, 5,385-square-foot beauty on the eastern side of Mountain Shadows Golf Club in Paradise Valley, one of Rose's clients.
Yup, they paid cash.
Polishing the images of clients like Sheriff Joe Arpaio, LifeLock and Pink Taco evidently buys a lot of bricks.
We like to follow the exploits of Rose simply because he's, like, the center of his own universe.
The shack's former owner is Bruce Halle, founder and chairman of the Discount Tire Company, and his wife, Diane.
