Shopping anyone? I just went to a store I have never been to before. The name is Charming Charlie. Have you heard of it? Let me walk you thru it . . . everything is presented by color! Everything in groups, bags, shoes, tops, jewelry and scarves. This store has tops and dresses only, no pants. When I went with my friend, Donna, we walked thru the door and just stood there!

Here in Sun City West, Briarwood Country Club, the desert is waking up slowly. The sun came up in its beautiful colors over the golf course. The birds were chirping their favorite song, or at least I think so. The bunnies where out feasting on my shrubs that aren’t fenced in, everyone has to eat!
I look out the window of my home office, and there he is . . . our resident coyote pup. He is still afraid of the bunnies, quail or anything that moves. I am sure that will change in (2 comments)

Customer service doesn't stop after the home has closed. - 06/24/12 07:30 AM
I received a call late last night, 10 p.m. from clients. Their air conditioner had stopped working! Yikes!! I sold this home to them about 6 months ago. I made sure they got a home warranty in the contract negotiations. When my clients called the home warranty company they were told no one would come out until Monday. My homeowner stated to the company that her husband had a heart condition and the heat bothered him. Next step, call your agent. I called the company and spoke to a Supervisor. Long story made short . . . repair person is coming (5 comments)
Sun City West was started in 1978 with variety in mind. To avoid “cookie-cutter” look Del Webb made sure that no two identical houses were built side by side. There were choices of 3 different elevations offered.
Knowing that many mid-westerners wanted grass lawn, Del Webb offered certain models in areas with park-like expanses of grass. Others are on tree lined streets. Golf is one of the main attractions of this community. It boasts 7 golf courses and a private Country Club, Briarwood. The builder, Del Webb, wanted you to have the option of playing a different course every (12 comments)

Need to find your peaceful place? - 06/19/12 04:07 PM
Stress . . . How do you deal with it? When I first started in Real Estate my Broker told me the most important thing I needed to remember is to have balance. The first thing that came to my mind was phone calls, mailings, open houses etc. These are important, but that is not the balance she was talking about. You must take time for family, spiritual nurturing, exercise and just time to be still.
So, today I went to my safe place . . . Palm Ridge indoor pool. Just to feel the water moving with me, (3 comments)
I needed a couple of things, new bathing cap for swimming and some ant spray. Now where should I go for these very important items? Bob’s Variety in Sun City West. Every time I enter Bob’s Variety, in Sun City West, I feel like a child again. They have everything you need and lots that you don’t! Who doesn’t need an Arizona snow globe or cactus salt and pepper shakers.
Well, I have obtained my two important items, plus two Indian print scarves for the (0 comments)

Are you a “right away,” or a “right way” Realtor? In the real estate market, you should always be mindful of your client needs. It is easy to get off track with their original needs. 1. Is this the right neighborhood? 2. Is this home right for our needs? 3. Do we have the right comps? 4. Do we have the right lender, inspector, qualified repair person and home warranty? 5. Do we have a realistic price set for this home? 6. Do we have the right Real Estate Agent for us? Many times clients get caught up in the emotion of the deal and lose (12 comments)
I was having my morning cup of coffee this morning, and saw two little coyote pups going thru my yard in Sun City West. They started to chew on some weeds and a bunny ran by and scared them, that will soon change. I did not see the mother around and decided to try to get some pictures. They went running thru the neighbor’s yards. If you click on the picture, you can see the second pup under the tree, look for the ears! They ended up going back home, Echo Mesa Golf Course in Sun City West, to (0 comments)
We all leave the nest, sometime! - 06/12/12 02:55 PM
It is a very interesting time of year. Winter is gone, spring has sprung and summer is approaching. There will be many graduations of all sorts, High School and College. Weddings will be on the horizon. Now, what does all this have to do with Real Estate? Simple . . . all of the above is done with Team Work. Not very many people accomplish any of the above without the help of others. When you are ready to go to the next step in your life journey, remember all of those who taught you well and fly to great heights! (1 comments)

One of the first questions a potential buyer asks is “Why are they selling?” There are many answers to this question in the Adult, over 55 communities: 1. We want a smaller house 2. We want a bigger house 3. We want to be on the Golf Course 4. We want to be closer to the grandchildren 5. Health reasons These are all valid reasons for selling a home. I do think the most important question you should ask is, “Is this home right for me?” Clients often get caught up in the game of the “Deal” and lose sight (41 comments)

I have had a great day today. I was invited by my clients to see how they have arranged their new home. They needed to sell the prior home quickly due to the fact that the husband had lost his job. They would only be able to stay in their existing home for six more months. Fortunately, we were able to sell their home in 5 months. With lots of patience and understanding, they were able to find a home they could pay for in cash with a little left over. We are not able to get all our clients to (0 comments)
