A Scottsdale home purchased from Rob Schneider has been completely renovated and is now on the market for $3.65 million.
Public records show Schneider bought the home at 9939 E. Desert Jewel Drive in November 2020, paying $1.25 million. Then Andrew Turley, an appraiser and developer, came along and snatched it up for $1.45 million in cash in February 2022.
“We basically redid everything except the shell of the house,” said Turley, president of Phoenix Valuations. “We re-engineered all the openings. We wanted it to be a custom house.”
One of the hallmarks of a home with the highest price point per square foot is the amount of natural light that penetrates the whole space, Turley said. Ripping out the old standard Arcadia sliding door, Turley installed a $60,000 10-foot high stacking door system to create an indoor/outdoor entertainment area.
Originally built in 2007, the 4,955-square-foot home has four bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms. A den could be converted into a fifth bedroom if needed. Interior walls were peeled back to create a more modern, open floor plan for the kitchen and great room leading to the outside patio.
“We ran all new plumbing and did a smooth, textured drywall finish you only see in custom homes,” Turley said.
The primary walk-in closet features ambient lighting and an oversized island that includes felt-lined jewelry drawers. The floors and walls of the primary bath boast 48-by-48-inch tile from Italy.
“All the cabinetry in the house are all European style self-closing,” Turley said.
The $65,000 kitchen appliance package is “over the top,” he said, featuring a full wine refrigerator. A car charger in the garage adds to the amenities.

This home at 9939 E. Desert Jewel Drive in Scottsdale has listed for $3.65 million.
The luxury market is heating up, said Frank Aazami of Russ Lyon Sotheby’s International Realty. Aazami and Dinesh Wilson, also of Russ Lyon Sotheby’s, are co-listing the Scottsdale property.
“For eight weeks running, showings and under-contract numbers have been on an upswing for sellers,” Aazami said. “New supply of inventory typically tapers off when the weather begins to heat up here in town.”
That means it’s a good time to list when other sellers will not, he said. Despite last year’s mortgage rate spike, demand remains strong.
“The demand and popularity of turnkey sales are in season,” Aazami said. “Kudos to our talented interior designers who are tastefully furnishing these homes.”
Turley said he selected reThink Interiors to stage the home and is planning a May 18 open house for other luxury agents to view the residence.
He said he is trying to see whether Schneider can make it.
“We’re trying to get him there,” Turley said. “He’s on tour with Adam Sandler selling out arenas. I don’t know if he can make it.”
