anthem: Phoenix Real Estate - Is greed good? - 03/22/08 04:09 AM
We've all probably seen the Oliver Stone movie "Wall Street" from the late 80's, starring Charlie Sheen and Michael Douglas.  In the most famous scene from that movie Michael Douglas, portraying the corporate raider Gordon Gecko, makes a speach at shareholders board meeting in which he states, "greed, for lack of a better term, is good."  For years I kinda of bought into that notion as it applies to our capitalist economic system.  However, as I've seen first hand our economy go through several boom and bust periods I've come to realize that GREED is not good.  Ambition is good, greed … (0 comments)

anthem: Anthem is in bloom... - 03/21/08 03:09 AM
When I first proposed the idea of moving to the Phoenix area about four years ago to my wife one of her first comments was, "but they don't have any trees down there."  I think she was thinking something along the lines of the Sahara desert.  Well, upon our first visit to the area that notion was dispelled rather quickly.  My parents live in a beautiful retirement community, Sun City Grand, which has four beautifully manicured golf courses, and in which the entire community is immaculately maintained.  We then ventured up to what became our eventual home, Anthem Arizona.  As stunning as … (0 comments)

anthem: Tuning in to Phoenix real estate... - 03/20/08 03:38 AM
We as Realtors doing a lot of driving.  Not all of it with clients in our car.  As I'm sure most of you do, I listen to music while driving (sometimes motivational CD's as well).  So I'm curious as to what others listen to while in their cars.
I'm a rocker so while I'm tooling around the Phoenix area I'll usually switch back between a coupl of local stations in the area, KCDX 103.1 out of Florence, AZ or  98.7, The Peak.  I have an eccletic taste in music, ranging from 80's new wave to classic rock, to classical music.  I find these … (0 comments)

anthem: Anthem area Real Estate Company gives back to its Community - 03/19/08 03:30 AM
This past weekend I was very proud of our Windermere Real Estate office.  Although we only currently have 13 agents in our office, 7 of us volunteered for the entire weekend, Saturday and Sunday to man our booth at Anthem Days. Now you may say, big deal.  Well, the purpose of our being there at the event was not to hock our wares so to speak.  We were there to raise funds for one of the local charities, We Care of Anthem and one of the events the organization conducts, Emma's Run.
Emma's run is a 5k/10k fun run charity event to raise … (0 comments)

anthem: Anthem Days are here again... - 03/10/08 03:22 AM
One of the biggest and most anticipated events of the year in the master planned community that I live in is Anthem Days.  As I mentioned in a previous post, Anthem is a truly unique community.  We absoluteyl love it. And we are spoiled by it indeed.
Anthem Days is two day event, usually in the middle of March which entails a fair and a multitude of activities for the kids, plus a trade fair for the local business owners.  It attracts thousands of people from all over the Phoenix valley.  It is a very fun time for the whole family, the … (0 comments)

anthem: Daylight Savings Time and Arizona - 03/09/08 03:38 AM
Ahhhh, we're back to daylight savings time.  Oh wait, I'm in Arizona.  We don't observe the turning forward and back of the clocks.  Actually though, I'm glad we're all back on the same time.  It's always a little frustrating when your an hour ahead of everyone else trying to get things done but then remember, oh yeah, they're not even in the office or awake yet.  And embarrasing sometimes when you call someone at what you think is a reasonable time only to remeber that your an hour ahead.
Anyway, I don't know why Arizona chooses to forgo the switching of the … (2 comments)
