Russell Stephenson

Event Coordinator

A passion for decorating and a love of the lime light led Russell to fall into his dream job.  Having left Sedona where he worked for the Versace family in an upscale Restaurant he came back to his hometown in 1993 where he started with BeDillon's Restaurant as a waiter.  He spent a couple of years with BeDillon's before leaving for Denver to find himself only to return HOME.  The Property was the perfect fit upon his return and has enjoyed working with Mike, Nancy and Chef Mike ever since.  Attention to décor detail and excellent customer service make collaborating with Russell something you will want to do for all of your Special Events.

Michael and

Nancy Jackson

Owners

Michael purchased "The Property located at 1251 W. Gila Bend HWY" in 1974.  The paperwork read just that and thus the name became 'The Property' upon marring Nancy a few years later Michael moved out of the old house and they began working to make the facility a dining experience for Casa Grande.  Work had been started and the kitchen added before Michael had acquired the house, so, with work done by themselves and friends and only a few hundred dollars between them they opened in 1983.  Great success followed through the years and has led toBeDillon's Cactus Garden and Restaurant and The Property to change from a full scale restaurant to a Conference and Banquet Facility.
