There are some downright stupid buys to be had in the current Real Market here in Scottsdale.  In the past two days, I have looked at three different properties that were $100,000-$200,000 under market in my estimation.  Given they were located in my primary market, my estimation is pretty darn a...
The concept of trading houses is not a new one.  It was around when I started in this industry nearly a decade ago, and it was around when my father was just launching his career in 1974.  What is unique, at least in terms of the local Real Estate market in the greater Phoenix area, is that the c...

You were the most difficult client I ever had.  Highly intelligent with an engineering background, your bio was a fascinating one.  You rode the silicon wave right out of northern California and crashed upon the shores of the Valley.  Along with many of your cohorts, the work dried up with the do...

How does one encapsulate the life of a father?  Can a fitting tribute really fit within the confines of a solitary blog post?  Maybe for some.
