Homeward Bound - A Wonderful Phoenix AZ Non-Profit - 11/29/09 03:45 PM
As the holidays approach, it is a great time to reflect upon what we are grateful for. I also make sure to take some time to consider how I can give back. One local non-profit that I support is Homeward Bound. Located in Phoenix AZ, Homeward Bound's mantra is "A hand up, not a handout." Homeward Bound's mission is to assist families who are homeless, victims of domestic abuse or fall into the working poor category get back on track and prepare them for future successes. One of the main facets of Homeward Bound's initiative is a 12 to 24 month intensive program that teaches (2 comments)
Scottsdale AZ Golf Community Sales Update - Through October 2009 - 11/24/09 12:23 PM
Here is an overview of the sales activity for 2009 for the Scottsdale AZ Golf Communities. This list is not exhaustive, but it covers many of the major golf communities in Scottsdale, Carefree and Cave Creek. Typically, I look at the communities on an individual basis, but in this case, I wanted to see how the different communities stack up side-by-side. As you can see, there is a wide variance in pricing and sales data depending on the community. These communities represent the top luxury private golf communities and well as some others that have more affordable homes and are built around a public or semi-public golf course.

Located on the corner of Miller Road and Pinnacle Peak in Scottsdale AZ, Harvest restaurant is a welcome newcomer to the neighborhood.

Harvest is a casual dining restaurant that will appeal to anyone. The focus is on fresh, delicious American food. The interior has a lot of wood and orange accents and even has a wood "sculpture" above the counter area. Indoor dining has booths and tables and there is a large patio area (5 comments)
Greater Phoenix Luxury Condo Market Performance - October 2009 - 11/17/09 02:34 PM
October was a decent month for the Greater Phoenix luxury condo market. I define the luxury condo market as condos for sale with asking prices in excess of $1 million. While activity continues to be somewhat slow in this segment, there was one sale and one pending sale in October. At the end of the month, there were 68 luxury condos for sale in the Greater Phoenix area. The majority of these units are in Scottsdale, with 33, and Phoenix, with 29. The remaining 6 are located in Tempe. October's sale was a penthouse unit at the Scottsdale Waterfront Residences for $2.7 million. This penthouse with panoramic (0 comments)
