What can I do to help my outdoor plants, in my Sun City West property?

sun city west: Need to find your peaceful place? - 06/19/12 09:07 AM
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)

sun city west: Are you a "right away", or a "right way" Realtor? - 06/16/12 03:36 AM

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)

sun city west: We all leave the nest, sometime! - 06/12/12 07:55 AM
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!

sun city west: Have you ever heard this before . . ."Why are they selling?" - 06/02/12 08:19 AM

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)

sun city west: Have you heard of these NEW FHA rules? - 04/24/12 03:34 AM
Wow.  I just got off the phone with a supervisor from a large aerospace corporation Credit Union in Washington State. 
Before my client can get his FHA loan, all people involved, Appraiser, Real Estate Agent, Insurance Company, Escrow Officer Etc. must have their names run through a Government data bank.  New FHA rules.
Because I have a common last name, Smith, they needed my middle initial. 
The supervisor then went on to tell me that the Government has a “list”.  If you are on this “list”, they will not give your client a loan.  I then asked this supervisor … (7 comments)
