Ascaya Sales Associate, Kirstin Corsetti, boasts over a decade of experience in the Las Vegas luxury markets and a career dedicated to working with high-end clients. In this one-on-one Q&A, Kirstin – one-third of The Agency real estate team exclusively dedicated to selling at Ascaya – shares similarities between Ascaya and LA’s Bird Streets neighborhood, go-to dining and shopping spots on and off the Las Vegas Strip, and who’s buying at Ascaya and why. Read on to learn this and more.
How would you describe Ascaya’s surrounding location for someone who has never been to the Vegas area?
Ascaya is perfectly situated in the Las Vegas valley. The community itself is off-set just enough from the main ‘hotspot’ of the city that it is tranquil and calm, however, close enough that everything is easily accessible. Twenty minutes to the action of the Las Vegas Strip, 30 minutes in either direction for hiking at Red Rock or boating at Lake Mead or 10 minutes to the airport!
Vegas has some of the best restaurants in the world. What are some of your favorites on the Strip, off-strip, and in Henderson?
On the Strip, I am a huge fan of Eataly in Park MGM, Yellowtail in Bellagio and my all-time favorite Carbone inside of ARIA. Off-strip, Lindo Michoacan has some of the best Mexican food I have ever eaten! Cleaver also is one of my top favorites for their incredible steaks and awesome Happy Hour. King’s Fishhouse in Henderson is a wonderful spot for fresh seafood.
In addition to dining, Vegas is home to endless shopping spots. What are some of your favorite shops around Ascaya?
The District in Green Valley has some awesome shops but I am partial to an afternoon at Town Square on Las Vegas Boulevard – lunch and shopping, who could complain?!
It’s been said that Ascaya is like LA’s iconic ‘Bird Streets’ neighborhood with a climate similar to Palm Springs. What are your thoughts on this, and how do you speak to the stunning architectural view, valley, mountain and canyon homes found within the gates of Ascaya?
The architecture, views, and amenities of Ascaya are like nothing else in the area. It is truly one of a kind, and something I am so proud to sell.
Ascaya has 21 miles of mountainous streets that Robb Report magazine turned into a closed-course, slaloming road runway for its Dream Machine event. Would you say the community is a draw to car enthusiasts?
Definitely! We have many car enthusiasts in the community. Driving around the community is so scenic, and with our large lots there is the option for spacious garage spaces.
What’s your favorite time of day at Ascaya and why?
Twilight, on a clear day. The sunsets are incredible and you can’t beat the view of the Las Vegas strip from the community.
With the sales success Ascaya is having, what are some of the trends you’re seeing in terms of where buyers are coming from, why they are seeking a home in Nevada and why at Ascaya?
We see a lot of current owners looking to reinvest in Ascaya, which is a true testament to how incredible the community is. Also, there are a lot of buyers from California that look to build a secondary (sometimes primary) home here mainly for tax and cost of living reasons but also because the environment is so peaceful.
