Hiking in Phoenix North Mountain Preserve on St Patrick's Day 2012




Happy St Paddy's Day!  Today we went for a morning hike in the North Mountain Phoenix Preserve. Since it's St Paddy's Day I figured many people  would be wearing green as we did as well. And sure enough lots of folks where in the Irish Spirit. Top of the morning to you was heard over and over.  How fun! 


What was so interesting today was at first it was sunny and bright. Then all of sudden the clouds started rolling in and it was the perfect time to catch some shots.  We don't have many cloudy days in Phoenix so most of us get excited about the change in weather!  We're expecting two days of rain.  Yeah!


Tomorrow we plan to get out the big umbrellas and go for a walk in the rain. See you at the top! 






Real Estate and Working with my Clients is my Passion!



I take my clients trust in me very seriously. I'm known for 'telling' it like it is, not what folks might want to hear or  think it should look like. Now that may sound kind of tough, but think about it, in the long run if you want to buy or sell a home you need to know the real facts in order to make a wise choice.


If you want the truth and the whole truth, I am the 
Phoenix Real Estate Broker for You.


When you are ready to buy or sell a Phoenix Area Home, I will be your advocate, guide, and fierce negotiator. I will work hard to make your buying or selling a home as smooth and stress-free as I possibly can - even if it's a short sale.  Guaranteed.


Call me and we'll create a plan of action to buy a home or sell your home!
