Resident Spotlight: Joe and Fran Burick


Our residents are a huge part of what makes Estrella such a special place to call home. Allow us to introduce you to Joe and Fran Burick, this month’s resident spotlight.

Joe and Fran were eager for change after more than two decades of living in Scottsdale. After searching for homes across the Valley, the couple fell in love with the Estrella community and built a beautiful David Weekley Home in 2015.

Often referred to as “senior teenagers,” Joe and Fran enjoy an active lifestyle and frequently fill their calendars with golf (their backyard overlooks Hole 1 of the Golf Club of Estrella), entertaining guests at their home, and participating in numerous Estrella community events. Specifically, Joe is heavily involved with the Estrella Mountain Car Club and was instrumental in organizing the 2017 Cruizin’ to the Lakes Car Show this past March – stay tuned for the 2018 event next Spring!

The Burick’s favorite aspect of living in Estrella are the “down-to-Earth” residents of the community, and that the neighborhood has a mix of people from all ages and different backgrounds. The couple sees their home as the perfect sanctuary to enjoy a retirement full of fun and relaxation.

Thank you, Joe and Fran, for helping make Estrella a great place to live. If you think a particular resident would be a perfect fit for our next Resident Spotlight, email us at
