Ten Lightning Safety Tips - 07/31/10 04:54 PM
OK, I'll admit it--I am a sucker for a full blown, all out electrical light show...I could sit and watch the spectacular lightning displays for hours on end. Did you know that Arizona has more lightning than any other western state? Unfortunately most people greatly underestimate the probability of being hit by a lightning strike. Sadly, that was brought home on July 13, 2010 for an unlucky golfer in Tucson, AZ who was on the driving range during an intense Monsoon thunderstorm when he was struck and killed. A single stroke of lightning has 125,000,000 volts of electricity. That's enough (1 comments)
San Xavier Mission - 07/24/10 09:34 PM
The Spirit of Arizona Blog Series: San Xavier Mission The majestic "White Dove of the Desert" rises like a vision from the desert floor seemingly out of place and yet, oddly at home with its sparse surroundings. The San Xavier Mission, which has been compared to the Vatican's Sistine Chapel, is known as one of the finest examples of Spanish colonial architecture. Filled with the glory of the 18th Century it is bursting with color, and you can't help but feel the passion of its creators from the moment you step inside this Southern Arizona treasure. A National Historic Landmark, San (0 comments)
The Spirit of Arizona - 07/24/10 06:54 PM
I was born and raised in California and for the first 50 years of my life called it home. Never dreaming that a land just one state away would capture my heart with its range of places, people, and things to see and do as vast as the Grand Canyon. In 1993, when my two sons were 9 and 11, we, and my youngest brother, embarked on a journey that began at the Arizona/Mexico border and continued across the entire state of Arizona. We made several stops along the way, including the Painted Desert, Sedona and a memorable train ride to (1 comments)

Curb Appeal Matters When Selling Your Home - 07/14/10 05:20 PM
Did you know that most Buyers will first do a "drive-by" when deciding whether to take a look at the inside of your home? That's why curb appeal is so important when your house is on the market. What is the outside of your home saying to Buyers? Keep in mind, that Buyers don't just look at the front of the house, but where possible, they will try to see the backyard as well. So be sure to focus your attention on both areas. A few simple changes can make the difference between a Buyer crossing your house off their list (0 comments)
Is Your House Listing Turning Buyers On or OFF? - 07/11/10 06:27 PM
Recently I had the good fortune to work with a higher-end and well-educated Buyer. It turned out to be quite an enlightening process and that experience is the inspiration for this blog. My first "introduction" to this Buyer was via an email they sent to me after viewing my profile on Trulia.com. We worked together for about 3 months before I met them in person to show them homes. Within 4 hours we were sitting down to write an offer on a $425,000 home. By that evening they were under contract. This alone should convince even those of you who are (3 comments)

Monday, July 05, 2010 by Judi Monday, Your Green Valley AZ Expert It seems we get so caught up in the business of Real Estate, and ways to grow that business that we forget to stop and share those personal celebrations that make us who we are at our most essential level.

Well, I have a new man in my life--as I am fond of telling people, he doesn't have much hair, isn't (0 comments)
