Sierra Vista: What's In A Name? - 03/31/11 02:49 PM
Sierra Vista, in Spanish, means Mountain View. So what? Many areas of our great continent have mountain views... so what makes Sierra Vista, Arizona different? Another term, "sky islands," needs to be introduced. Sky islands are essentially small (usually) mountains, or mountain ranges, that seemed to have just "popped-up" from the normal terrain, and then appear much the same as islands that stand majestically above the seas. The Huachuca Mountains are sky-islands, and provide the mountain view, or "Sierra Vista," from which we take our city's name. With peaks at 9,300 feet, these are real mountains, and they form one rim (1 comments)
Too Much Information? How About A Latte? - 03/30/11 02:00 PM
Too Much Information? As we become more tech-savvy in our marketing, struggling (and succeeding) to provide high-quality, effective tools to the consumer of real estate services, we have succeeded beyond our wildest dreams. Some of my web sites, for instance, make available every imaginable information source, with user-customizable searches; for homes, schools, crime statistics, community demographics... and, will soon be able to dispense a Latte, to my real estate prospects. Well, not really a Latte, but draft beer is quite possible! Well, it seems that many of the features are a bit overwhelming to some of my prospects, while others (the (1 comments)
Sierra Vista Is NOT A "Company" Town - 03/29/11 03:05 PM
It often happens that a large military installation, located near a small civilian community, becomes dominant. In those cases, "Company Towns" are developed,,, where the city, and its residents, routinely defer to the wishes of the military installation. Fort Huachuca (wah-choo-kah) is a teriffic neighbor and a wonderful resource to Sierra Vista. Fort Huachuca is a high-tech installation, specializing in ARMY Intelligence, and ARMY Communications. Situated on 73,000 acres of idyllic Southeast Arizona terrain, a portion of it rises to the crest of the "sky islands" of the Huachuca Mountains. Because oif its high-tech nature, the military and civilian personnel who (0 comments)
Sierra Vista, Arizona: Almost Too Good To Be True - 03/28/11 03:02 AM
Climate: Among the most moderate, anywhere in the United States. How could that be? We are at an altitude of nearly 4,700 feet, high above the hot desert floor.,, about 10-12 degrees cooler than Phoenix, in the summertime. We are far enough south that we don't receive the heavy snow falls common in our northern mountains... we usually get snow four or five times per year, but it almost never sticks. Home buyers in Sierra Vista are often surprised by the lack of extreme heat and cold, deciding to buy their real estate here, in this "oasis" in the sky. Fort (1 comments)
