A few years ago, I talked my parents into moving from the cold snow belt in Indiana to the sunny skies of Arizona. My father who incidentally did not want to move because he enjoyed "THE CHANGE OF SEASONS" made the move rreluctantly until he got here and then decided that it was the best move he ever made. Personally, I really could not find the joy in three layers of sweaters, a fir lined coat, two layers of pants, three layers of socks, inside my fir lined boots and a pair of gloves inside my mittens, all of this just to go to (0 comments)
HEY MOM, I LIVE IN A COFFEE CUP - 08/29/09 12:39 AM
HEY MOM, I LIVE IN A COFFEE CUP! That is exactly what I told my mother 15 years ago when I moved to the Phoenix, Metro area.

MAN BITES DOG - That's an interesting title. Man Bites Dog is actually the name of a card game that my husband and I play when entertaining guest at our home. The object of the game is to make headlines from the cards you are dealt. Hey they sounds like blogging and real estate. In real estate you are dealt cards; you have to make things happen with what you have. Now this article is not about a man actually biting a dog, but how animals are bitten, so to speak, by abandonment. In real estate we owe our fiduciary to our (2 comments)
HOUSING PRICES ARE LOW IN PHOENIX, ARIZONA - 08/18/09 11:15 AM
HOUSING PRICES ARE LOW IN PHOENIX, ARIZONA Why are housing so low in Phoenix, Arizona? I am asked this question over and over again from people who live in other parts of the United States, and abroad. "Why are the prices of the houses in Phoenix, Arizona so low? I say they are not low, they are normal! Yes, I said normal. I am not losing my mind, I am perfectly sane. Phoenix has always had wonderful pricing on homes, that is why we have grown by leaps and bounds in terms of our population. Affordable homes, in a warm climate, (2 comments)
