A True Love Story - Sedona Style!

 

Homes are Where Love and Dreams Come True...

 

 Top of Bell Rock

It was November 2014, and my son met the love of his life on a rock climbing adventure up to the top of Bell Rock. He was the guide.  They hit it off, and Samantha had to leave on the rest of her journey before heading back to Switzerland. 

Christmas 2014

My son broke the first of many news items to come.  He was leaving the next day for Switzerland to see if what they had was real. He had 90 days to find out!  He proposed, he came back and they started planning their life together while all the legel paperwork was being filed and approved. 

Samantha came back to Sedona in November and the next week they were married on the mesa that they fell in love.  It was a magical day!

Multi- Gen Living

Just like that... two married couples were living in a 2 BD home.  Believe it or not, it worked out very well.  However, with a couple of short months, Rick and I found out we were going to be grand-parents next February (2016). YIKES!  

Time To Get Hoppin!

With a little one on the way, there was no time to waste. Samantha had to establish credit. Yes, she had a job working in my real estate office as a receptionist.  I didn't even know she had applied. She saw an ad in the paper! 

Looking For A Home In The Village of Oak Creek

We tried to find the right home at the right price. Nothing was working out. My husband said that we should try Verde Santa Fe in Cornville.  So I started looking.  Every puzzle piece started to fit in the right spot, but the time was running short.  We had to get this home secured. 

Move In Was 12 Days Before The Baby Was Born...

 We thought we had more time but that baby was going to come. There were boxes everywhere but that baby was going to come... and you know when the baby is going to come... it is a commin! YIKES!

It has been Three Years ....

Tristan was born only a week before Valentines Day - three years ago. It was the most important home I have ever secured for a client. Those clients just happened to be my son, his wife, and my little grand-baby.  This is a transaction I will always cherish in my heart.

Hi Nina Hollander - I was never worried that this was not going to work. My son was steadfast in doing everything right for the State department to ensure no rejection of the paperwork. Every step went well.

HI Brian England - I have told this story before with a little different twist! It is usually a Thanksgiving or February contest and this fits perfectly for the time of year.  

Rick and I are looking forward to seeing you next week!  I will give you a call in the next couple of days.

Hi Joan Cox - Samantha was living with us the entire pregnancy.  Tristan has always been at home in Nani's home. Watching him grow has been a huge blessing for me.

Hi Paul S. Henderson, REALTOR®, CRS - You know exactly what I was going through.  I have only had a handful of first time buyers. So this was exciting from that perspective as well.

Hi Kathy Streib -  It really is a story made for TV movie.  When Ricky was in Switzerland, we skyped every Monday at the same time.  We got to live my son's dream with him. It was so wonderful.

Hi Lisa Von Domek - I left some serendipitous events out just to keep it shorter. Samantha got to meet the entire family before she left for Europe...all by chance. My other son lives in Riverside CA and Samantha's train connection was missed. Samantha was stuck in Riverside. She had juice for just a couple of phone calls. She called Ricky knowing he was from California and asked his advice... He got his brother over to her at the train station to help her. After the engagement in Switzerland, Ricky asked Sam where she wanted to live.  He would have packed and moved to Switzerland if necessary.  But Sam said she wanted to move to Sedona.... and the rest is history!
