This is but one of the neighborhoods at the base of the Tortolita Mountains in the NW area of Tucson - commonly referred to as Oro Valley, although this particular subdivision is actually in the town of Marana. Stunning views, highly rated schools and convenient location are hallmarks of this area.  If you are relocating to the Tucson area - please feel free to give me a call.   For all of your real estate needs:  commercial,residential, investment or land.

Growing up on my family's farm near Las Cruces, New Mexico, cotton was a major factor in our lives.  It put food on our table, paid the mortgage on the land, provided my first job, a place to play...you name it, cotton was part of it.  My first trip to DisneyWorld was to a cotton convention, even my first trip to New York City, first Broadway play and first 7-course meal had a tie to cotton! On the way to show a home in Marana today, I took the frontage road next to I-10 and saw the cotton modules on the side of the fields, ready to be taken to the gin.  A little bit of nostalgia washed over me...a little sadness and more than a dose of resignation to the fact that I won't see much cotton in Arizona anymore. Farms like this one are being developed.  Just north of this field is the Gladd...

Enchanting Vistas at Tangerine Crossing in Marana, Arizona On Wednesday I got a phone call from a person in Florida, asking me about availability of a specific floor plan in a particular neighborhood in the Northwest area of the Tucson Metro (Oro Valley/Marana).  The name of the subdivision rang a bell, but a faint one..."need to get specifics here," common sense told me. Having not been up in that area with homes in mind for a few months, the idea of driving over to see what was going on with new construction in general seemed like a good idea to make best use of the time. Turns out, the subdivision in question is built out...a lot or two are available for custom building, but the specific floor plan my customer was asking for is gone like ice cream in August (unless there's one on the...

Yes, it is football time again across our great country and for that we are truly joyful.  But the season I refer to is the season when the NW part of Tucson starts to think about coming alive again.  Its the time when the weather turns decidedly chilly and worse in most parts of the country and in the border country north.  Its the time when the desert, yes, the desert that is so darn hot turns into a place that must be experienced for several seasons to truly understand. Our family, friends, neighbors, associates and even collegues are starting to think about heading back to the Old Pueblo in numbers that stagger the imagination.  Coming back to their "other home" in the great Southwest.  Coming back to the comfort, better weather, change of scenery and warmth for minds and bodies tha...

Hundreds of residents recently celebrated the opening of the new Tangerine Farms road linking the Gladden Farms housing development with Interstate 10.  On June 25 the nearly 4-mile stretch of brand new road was opened to much fanfare and anticipation of community residents. The new road is four lanes with a center median and sidewalks on both sides and will make commuting much easier for Marana residents, linking both the Gladden Farms and Rancho Marana communities to the freeway.  It will also serve as a major thoroughfare to the planned Fry's Marketplace on the corner of Lon Adams and Tangerine Farms road as well as the Shops at Tangerine, a 281 acre megaplex of retail, dining, entertainment and auto mall. Signal lights have not been installed yet but are planned for the very near fu...

Tiger Woods Wins Unprecedented 3rd World Match Play Championship The juggernaut that goes by the name of Tiger Woods graced the fairways of Dove Mountain this week.  Coming away with a record 3rd Championship in the Accenture World Match Play series, he has won every event he has entered this year so far.  While people will undoubtedled ask him over and over again about the possibility of an undefeated season, it matters only to the statisticians, as he is proving yet again that he is the best player the game has ever produced. Records fall like dominos in regular order as his career rolls along like a finely tuned machine.  Sometimes there are adjustments to be made, a tweak here, an improvement there...but even in his "off" years, Tiger Woods dominates his competition.

If you were to compare the amount of time you dedicate to golf compared to your real estate business there is obviously no comparison right?  For starters then throw, leave, do whatever you to do to every expectation you have in your car, better yet the trunk before you head to the practice tee. Please notice, I didn't say 1st tee. That is by far the most common mistake we make and that is preparing your golfing mind for the course. Yes! You do have one, some are just more developed than others. I'll get more into that in a bit.  Let's face facts first. You know your game better than anyone else. So if you don't play too often start by choosing the right set of tees to play from. For the vast majority of us, the whites are the best choice. However, many of the newer courses have 5 sets ...

Word has it that the development known as Saguaro Springs, a 2,500 home development in Marana, AZ (near Tucson) may have tanked, and will revert to the original sellers for the original sales price of $30,000,000., resulting in a loss of approximately $70,000,000 for a national developer who has invested that amount in roads and infrastructure.               Situated to the north of West Twin Peaks Rd in Marana, and west of Interstate 10, the project is an anchor of Marana's spectacular growth.  The setback may hold up the planned construction of the Twin Peaks interchange at I-10, the cost of which will be paid not by the federal government, but by private development companies.  It's unclear what the effect may be on the yet-to-be-built Marana Spectrum, a lifestyle mall approved by th...

Builder Online Magazine points out that there are some very smart investors who have taken advantage of the current real estate cycle.  Case in point, Chris Kemmerly sold his company Kemmerly Homes to Standard Pacific in August 2004.  In December 2007, Standard Pacific sold its Tucson division back to a group led by Kemmerly.  The price was not disclosed but everyone has to assume that in lieu of Standard Pacific's struggling financial state, the Kemmerly group got a good deal.  The inventory at that time was 700 lots and 70 completed or partially completed homes.  The deal closed prior to fiscal year end (smart investment move for the buyers). Smart Tucson investors love our $299 AZ flat fee listing service.   Visit the www.congressrealty.com website to learn more.
