Joe Dodani calls Tonopah his “Diamond City.”

The land broker, who said he has 15 years’ experience with more than 200 transactions in the area, has seen the growth in the West Valley — growth that he said is poised to overtake Tonopah in the coming years.

So, with that in mind, two of Dodani’s clients have made purchases amounting to a combined 242 acres of land in downtown Tonopah.

Those clients — SLM Land Holdings and Phoenix physician Dr. Hetal Shah — each purchased about half of that land for $1,052,700, Dodani said.

But plans aren’t slowing down.
