Nick Bastian talks Tempe Real Estate with Fox 10 - 09/23/08 01:26 PM
Recently, I was invited to the Fox 10 studios to talk about real estate and my business. This was a great opportunity for me to help people get a better feel for what I do. Basically, I was able to share: 1. A little bit of my background. I talked about living in the area for over 35 years and about the fact that I have been selling real estate in the valley for the past 16 years. 2. Some of the tools we use to help clients. Everyone knows that most people begin their search on the internet. We will continue to (11 comments)
Nick Bastian and Mike Mueller Talk Social Media at Blogworld Expo - 09/22/08 02:57 PM
Mike Mueller and I discussed blogging and social media at the Blogworld Expo in Las Vegas this past week. I had a chance to talk to Mike about the Arizona Real Estate Blogging Network and he was more than happy to discuss social media with me. Mike Mueller does a really great job in getting his message out and in using many different social media tools in his business. Mike uses a lot of video and is an active blogger. Of course, you can find him on Twitter, Facebook and just about any other network you can think of. For some of (7 comments)
Tempe Ribbon Cutting at Fidelity National Title - 09/17/08 10:46 PM
I was really glad to have been invited to the ribbon cutting to celebrate Fidelity National Title's relocation to the Hayden Ferry Lakeside building. This is one of the most impressive spaces around and they occupy the entire 11th floor of this gorgeous building. As you cross the Mill Avenue Bridge or pass by on the freeway on the North side of the lake, you can't help but look at these beautiful buildings. Basically, you have the commercial space closer to the bridge and the residential towers of Bridgeview and Edgewater directly to the East. Talk about a cool lifestyle! Imagine working in one of (2 comments)
Tempe Homes Near Light Rail - 09/08/08 12:35 AM
The upcoming Light Rail system in Arizona will bring some very significant changes to the areas along the line. I have been following these areas very closely for the past two years and am looking forward to the opening of light rail this December. One of the more popular Tempe areas near the new light rail system is the Mill Avenue District. With a light rail stop at Mill Avenue / 3rd Street, the homes near by will be easily accessible to downtown Phoenix for employment and entertainment reasons. I am enclosing a sample of some of the "affordable" homes in that (3 comments)
Nick Bastian Joins Tempe Realty Executives Office - 09/04/08 11:40 PM
After 16 years in the real estate business, I feel more proud of my job and enthusiastic of my future than ever before. Recently, after a long process, I made a decision to join what I feel is the best fit of a real estate company (for me) in Arizona. That firm is Realty Executives. Over the past couple of months, I have weighed my options very carefully and have met formally and informally with several brokers, large and small. My desire to stay in Tempe where I live and where I enjoy being a part of the community played a large part in (8 comments)
