Real Estate Agent with Home Smart Arrowhead
I WAS A REALTOR IN BILLINGS, MONTANA FOR 26 YEARS DOING RESIDENTIAL SALES, SUBDIVISION DEVELOPMENT AND HOME CONSTRUCTION. THE BILLINGS MULTIPLE LISTING SERVICE ELECTED ME SALESMAN OF THE YEAR AND REALTOR OF THE YEAR. I ALSO WORKED COMMERCIAL REAL ESTATE DOING SALES, LEASING, MANAGING PROPERTIES, AND LAND DEVELOPMENT IN COMMERCIAL PROPERTIES. ALSO ELECTED AS THE OUTSTANDING KIWANIS MEMBER AND FUND RAISER FOR THE DEVELOPEMENT OF SPECIAL K RANCH. SPECIAL K RANCH WAS STARTED 24 YEARS AGO FOR MENTALLY DISADVANTAGED ADULTS. TODAY WE HAVE 24 MEN AND WOMAN LIVING AT THE RANCH WITH HOUSE PARENTS IN 6 HOMES AND ITS PAID FOR. THE RANCH RAISES SHEEP AND HAS 45,000 SQUARE FEET OF GREEN HOUSE SPACE RAISNG FLOWERS AND TOMATOES FOR STORES IN AREA. THREE YEARS AGO I MOVED TO PHOENIX GETTING INTO REAL ESTATE SPECIALIZING IN 55+ COMMUNITIES. I WORK IN THE SUN CITY, SUN CITY WEST, SUN CITY GRAND AND CORTE BELLA COMMUNITIES, WHICH ARE THE MORE POPULAR AREAS AND IN ADDITION I WORK IN THE SURROUNDING COMMUNITIES IN WEST METRO PHOENIX. TODAY WE ARE SEEING BUYERS FROM THE WEST COAST TO EAST COAST COMING TO THE VALLEY OF THE SUN PURCHASING HOMES. THE MARKET IS PICKING UP IN SALES BY 3 TIMES SINCE JAN. 2008 AND INVENTORIES ARE BEGINNING TO DROP. I WORK WITH FORECLOSED HOMES AS 62% OF OUR SALES IN MARICOPA COUNTY ARE FORECLOSED HOMES. I WOULD BE HONORED TO WORK WITH YOUR BUYERS WHO ARE CONSIDERING A MOVE TO THE PHONIX AREA.
