agents: Musical Monday - Presidents Day edition..... - 02/20/17 09:31 AM

 
Considering that the President of the United States is consdered to be the most powerful person in the world, I am suprised by the dearth of good music about our Commander in Chief.  So I had to stretch the criteria of what I considered "President songs".  Therefore any songs that merely mentioned a President or had "President" in the tile of the song or band name was fair game.  And sorry folks, this is a list of rock/pop songs so the obivous "Hail to the Chief" does not apply.
 
With that being said here's my list of "Presidential songs" in no order … (2 comments)

agents: Fitness Friday - Stimulate, don't annihilate...incremental training - 02/17/17 09:22 AM

One of my other passions in life in addition to music and sports is fitness.  Ever since I was a little kid I loved running, lifting, and anything else that had to do with staying in shape.  Mostly it was sports specific, to improve performance.  But as I delved into it further I found myself becoming more and more interested in physiology, kinesiolgy, nutrition, and sports medicine (although I'm not a doctor).  So much so that in my previous career I a was a personal trainer and owned a few fitness centers in San Francisco.
 
During my stint as a personal trainer/gym … (3 comments)

January marked the return of sales of the larger homes in the Anthem Country Club..

agents: Buyers! Sellers! I may have an agent for you..... - 01/13/17 02:19 PM

 
I work a lot with people relocating from other states.  Often these folks are referred to me by an agent they use in their respective town.  But all too often buyers, and even sellers will choose an agent who they are unfamiliar with in an unfamiliar area. This is where I, or your agent can come in handy for you.  
We as agents are constantly networking with each other, either via sites like Active Rain, or industry releated conventions and events.  So we probably know of a good agent in your area or the area you're headed to who can assist … (3 comments)
