Colette Bunch is an Associate Broker at the Walt Danley Christie’s International Real Estate
North Scottsdale office. She has held a real estate license for 30 years, and specializes in private
golf communities in North Scottsdale including Desert Mountain, Troon, and Ancala.
Prior to joining Walt Danley Realty, Colette made her mark in the private golf country club
segment. For two decades, Colette led the membership and sales of high-end luxury private golf
country club communities. World-renowned communities she represented include the esteemed
Desert Mountain Golf & County Club, situated on 8,000 acres including six Jack Nicklaus
Signature 18-hole golf courses, The Phoenix Country Club, the oldest and one of the most
revered clubs in Arizona located in the heart of Phoenix, and, most recently, Ancala Country Club
in Scottsdale, popular for its 18-hole Pete Dye design championship golf course.
Colette has built and forged relationships with luxury real estate agents from across the Valley
over the years, and even hosted the prestigious monthly Luxury Home Tour during her tenure at
Ancala Country Club, the very club for which she sold out through her strategic and innovative
marketing and sales tactics. In addition to playing a pivotal role in the membership sales of
Ancala, Colette is also credited for shifting The Phoenix Country Club’s membership position in
the past decade, and for starting up Desert Mountain’s original membership sales department.
Prior to her luxury golf country club niche, Colette owned a special event production, marketing
and management consulting company that serviced clients ranging from the Arizona Restaurant
and Hospitality Association to American Airlines. She also held positions as vice president and
designated broker for Phoenix-area property management companies.
For 30 years, Colette has held an Arizona Brokers license. Ultimately, working alongside top-
producing agents and their homebuyers at private golf country club communities inspired her to
segue into a dedicated career in luxury residential real estate. After a long 20-year personal
history with Walt Danley and the firm’s CFO Chuck Wasson, it was a natural fit and perfect
timing for Colette to join the team in the North Scottsdale office.
Colette and her husband, Zack, have a son and daughter-in-law who live in Austin, and a son and
daughter-in-law who live close by in the Phoenix neighborhood of Arcadia. As a personal hobby
– wouldn’t you guess it – Colette and Zack love to golf.
