Tubac, Arizona - 09/26/10 05:36 PM
The Spirit of Arizona Blog Series: Tubac, Arizona One of my favorite memories of yearly trips to Green Valley, Arizona to visit my parents was the trek to Tubac. My mom, my sons and I would always make the time for a day in Tubac where I would always find one special art piece in order to take a bit of the Southwest back with me to my home in California. The charming spirit of this quaint town, surrounded by scenic high desert vistas, was always the highlight of my trip but never once did I imagine that (0 comments)
Real Estate Disclosure - 09/23/10 05:04 PM
A question I am often asked by my sellers is what should I disclose about my home to potential buyers? My answer is always the same, disclose every material fact that you have knowledge of to a potential buyer. Taking it one step further beyond the material facts, for instance, if there are rumors about something going on in the area then let the Golden Rule be your guide: If it is something you would want to know as a buyer, then your buyer probably wants to know it as well--in essence, treat your buyers the way you want to be treated.

SELLING? Getting To SOLD And Feeling Like You've WON - 09/11/10 09:59 PM
I realize this isn't a great market for Sellers but the good news is that homes are selling when they are priced right for the market and the Seller is clear on their motives for selling as well as their bottom line. This past week I had THREE of my high-end (all in the $325,000-$400,000 price range) listings go under contract. The Sellers in all 3 cases paid attention to the market comps, competitively priced their homes, and didn't hesitate to make the deals work, all the while keeping in mind what they needed from the transaction. Most importantly, they (1 comments)
Sabino Canyon - 09/11/10 07:05 PM
The Spirit of Arizona Blog Series: Sabino Canyon A place to go...away from it all. A short ride and just minutes away from some of Tucson's best accommodations is a world far removed from the everyday. Sabino Canyon, a natural desert oasis located in Tucson's Coronado National Forest is home to spectacular desert landscape and abundant wildlife. You can experience the beauty of one of the most unique Southwestern desert canyons by embarking on the Sabino tram ride. Trams arrive every 30 minutes for the narrated, educational 45 minute, 3.8 mile tour into the foothills of the Santa Catalina Mountains. (1 comments)
Green Valley, AZ August 2010 Real Estate Statistics - 09/11/10 01:53 PM
Thanks to a very active Monsoon season we can see where Green Valley got the "green" in its name! Everywhere there is lush green vegetation including the lovely Santa Ritas, which look like they have a green velvet layer on them. After a big dip in sales in the month of July as compared to July 2009, August rebounded with 44 homes sold as compared to 42 homes sold in August 2009. The average selling price held steady at $167,884 with the previous month's $167,056, but continues to lag behind the average selling price of $180,000 for the same time period (0 comments)
There is a magical place in the heart of Green Valley that I recently discovered during a listing appointment. The thing is, I had driven by it countless times while traveling up and down Camino Encanto and while I had noticed the sign "Arid Garden", I never gave it a second thought. During the listing appointment, as the Seller was pointing out the features of their home, they proudly mentioned that in their backyard was a gate that opened to the Arid Garden. Eager to show me, we stepped through the gate and I was transported into a (1 comments)
San Ignacio Golf Club & Neighborhoods In Green Valley Arizona - 09/05/10 05:10 PM
A rare experience awaits those looking to relocate to the area around the San Ignacio Golf Club in Green Valley, Arizona. Rarely can a recreational facility of any kind be said to define the experience of living in a particular area. As part of Green Valley Recreation (a non-profit partnership of 13 recreation centers) the San Ignacio enclave of homes does just that. The neighborhoods and partner facilities making up this exclusive, sporting community represent a quality of life often sought after, but rarely found. The name San Ignacio comes from the area’s history. Straddling I-19 about a half hour south (0 comments)

Close Encounter With A Colorado River Toad - 09/04/10 03:04 PM
This week I nearly lost my beloved 80 pound Golden Retriever, Cooper, after he had a close encounter with a Colorado River toad less than 7 inches long. There he stood at the kitchen door with a plump frog whose 4 legs were dangling on each side of his mouth. My first reaction was fear for the frog who was clearly outmatched size wise. However, I watched in horror as Cooper's expression turned from triumph over his "catch" to a glazed over panic as the frog secreted copious amounts of what I now know to be a hallucinogenic toxin that can (0 comments)
