I just watched an msnbc video talking about the "fallout" from the real estate market and mentioning that "an entire army of REALTORS are struggling to get by." They went on to say that a Fla real estate school's enrollment is down by 50%  and that many agents are "shell shocked." The video also ...
Tempe Arizona is an amazing city that has a lot of really great outdoor activities. For outdoor enthusiasts, most activities are available year round. For instance, the average high temperature in January is 68 degrees while the average low temperature is 40 degrees. Yep, it is beautiful here!. T...
Recently, I was allowed to take a tour of the Operations and Maintenance Facility for the upcoming Light Rail system in Phoenix and I got to actually ride in one of the cars! I also met with the Project Manager for the maintenance facility and was able to discuss some of the technology, our opini...

Next up was the BIG Bowl game in town, the Fiesta Bowl ,which was held on Jan 2 at the University of Phoenix. Both of these bowls bring a lot of fans and pump some decent coin int...
I remember, not long ago, joking with Brad Andersohn in a comment (on a post that I think he would like to forget) that he was a "Rock Star" in his industry. I know that he really does LOVE music but that wasn't my point. You see, he has been a ton of help to MANY people and done it as well as an...
Recently, oil hit a hundred bucks a barrel. While I am no expert in the oil business, I have watched many trends in the real estate market that are probably effected by this. It's no secret that the Phoenix area is known for sprawl and that we have lacked a major housing presence downtown. This m...
