About Cortessa

Founded in 2004, Cortessa encompasses 1,732 homes, 5 parks, and 88 acres of professionally landscaped common areas. Located in the unincorporated city of Waddell, Cortessa is governed by Maricopa County.

The small-town feeling at Cortessa offers families a sense of security and belonging. Scenic vistas surround this master-planned community with the White Tank Mountains serving as a breathtaking backdrop. Bike over to the basketball courts, explore the neighborhood greenbelts, or walk along the many mountain-view pathways. A 10 minute drive to the 303 freeway gets you on your way to work or shopping in the snap of your fingers.

Conveniently located in the heart of Cortessa is Mountain View Elementary, a preK-8th grade, A-rated public elementary school. Shadow Ridge High School, also an A-rated public school, is located just across the street from Cortessa. If you prefer charter schools, there are several options within a 15 minute drive of the community making Cortessa a great place for families to raise children.
