marana: Do you Recycle Your Grease? - 11/02/20 09:45 AM
You can, yes you can!
I tend to pour mine in a can and refrigerate, throwing away when hard, but this can be trickier when it's a FryDaddy that needs changing, or something larger.

marana: Working With The Long Realty Team - 09/09/20 11:56 AM
When I initially talk teams with my clients, I first address the relationship between you and me.  After all, communication is KING and facilitates the many moving parts in any Real Estate transaction.
I like to identify best time of day, phone, text or email, and so forth.  We talk about holidays.  Work weeks. After hour communications.  I share that I love a paper trail and don't expect you to remember all of the details that I find so riveting.  So, I'll send a recap of most conversations just for the record.
But there's even more to a team than meets the eye.

This gated, luxury community is sure to steal your breath away.  From the moment you advance from the tunnel through the mountainside, you are met with desert splendor and serenity.
Today I'm sharing my visit through Saguaro Ranch, in NW Tucson/Oro Valley/Marana.
After the lovely hilltop break, we traveled through Saguaro Ranch, noticing the existing homes all share the architectural guidelines of utilizing glass, steel and stone in their construction.  Stunning!
Here's a visual of four lots for sale,  I'm standing on lot 100, and lots 97-99.
 Further up the road, we enjoyed the hills and valleys of this beautiful community.

2.  Mountains.
My kids thought Tucson was just a flat desert plain with a few Saguaro Cacti to break up the monotony before they came to visit.
Tucson is surrounded by four main mountain ranges, on all sides.
Santa Catalina's, including Mt. Lemmon, to the north. Santa Ritas to the South.

Here is Cat Mountain, SW Tucson,Tucson Mountain Range.
Tucson Mountains to the West - This is a closeup of Sombrero Peak.
Pusch Ridge to the North, part of the Santa Catalina's in Oro Valley.
Rincons to the east.
They are amazing, and each different in their own ways.
These are the Tortolita Mountains, up where they play golf by … (2 comments)

1.  Sunrise.
Everyone talks about our sunsets, but don't miss getting up early for these beauties!!
These are views over the Rincon Mountains, located on the East Border of the Tucson Valley.
5:30 a.m. this morning.  I looked outside and had to go grab my camera.
After two years of waking to this view, it doesn't get old!
 This is up Oro Valley Way, looking towards the Santa Catalina Mountain Range.
 Tucson sits in an elevated valley between four Mountain Ranges - Santa Catalinas to the North, Rincons to the East, Santa Ritas to the South, and the Tucson Mountain Range to the West.

marana: Selling your Home - What do Your Walls Say About You? - 10/25/18 01:08 PM
Selling your Home - What do Your Walls Say About You?
Yesterday I enjoyed another weekly home tour with available listings for sale in Dove Mountain, Marana, AZ.  We saw homes priced from $300,000 up to 1.4 million.
One of the things that enters my mind when looking for a new home with a buyer is...what mind set is the seller in?  Are they motivated to sell, or are they just listing to "see what happens"?
One of the advantages of a home tour is, we can ask a question like, "Why is the seller moving".  When I ask that question on behalf of … (1 comments)

marana: Find Your WOW - 10/16/18 08:55 AM
Every so often I run across statistics that make me say WOW outloud. The most recent, and I can’t remember the source (sorry) said that in the first few years of a Real Estate career, 80% fail.
WOW. 80% fail.
I’ve heard different statistics for different time frames but they all point to the same thing...if you’ve been around in Real Estate for more than a few years – WOW you’re doing something right!
I started in 2005 and homes were selling in what seemed like seconds – I was terrified. Multiple offers, cash deals – it was all such an overwhelming WOW to … (23 comments)

marana: Pain Free to Become more Pain Free - 03/14/18 08:17 AM
We all have our different opinions on Chiropractors.
Some view them as a necessary part of their preventative health routine,  a tool to help regain wellness with rehabilitation after a car accident, injury, condition...or for others, well some think Chiropractic care is a quack.
I'd like to introduce to you today one smooth duck - no quacking at all.
Dr. Monica Fowler - of Fowler Chiropractic.
A proud member of Marana Chamber of Commerce, and an avid supporter for many charitable and health-related events and campaigns yearly, Dr. Monica cares for her community and for her patients.
The biggest difference I noticed when I switched to Fowler … (2 comments)

marana: Introducing Marana Chamber Member: E-Konomy Pool Service & Supplies - 03/09/18 09:23 AM
We've been personally using E-Konomy Pools Service and Supplies since we bought our new home and are the happy owners of a large, sparkling pool.
During our ownership, the pump has broken, the surrounding deck has been resurfaced, we've gone through the monsoon season, and more.
Our pool has never been cloudy, dirty, stinky -- less than swimable -- once.  
We attribute this to the care and concern of our pool technician, part of E-Konomy Pools.  When we needed a new pump, we went to E-konomy.
We've found fair prices, good service, and excellent customer care.
For all your future pool needs, consider giving E-Konomy Pools Service … (0 comments)
