Ringing and Singing! Meet Allie Angeloni! Yesterday I had the pleasure of chatting with Allie Angeloni. What an absolutely delightful, upbeat gal! Allie was hoping there was going to be a ActiveRain meetup in the Tucson area as she wouldn't be able to join the Phoenix Giddy Up Meetup!  So I decided to call her and have our own personal meetup on the phone! Allie is brand new to ActiveRain this month and is jumping right into the deep end of the pool and going for it - big time!  Allie and her husband Roger are in business together in Oro Valley (Tucson AZ). Roger has been an agent for over 7 years and Allie has been an agent for under a year. She is excited about her new career and about Team Angeloni - is that great branding or what!  Who wouldn't want an ANGELoni working for them!  Wh...

Catalina State Park in Oro Valley, AZ This weekend my husband and I were able to take a little time out for a picnic and a hike, and one of the great things about Catalina State Park is location, location, location. Located just south of the intersection of Oracle and Tangerine Roads in Oro Valley, Catalina State Park has hiking, biking, birding, picnicking, camping, horseback riding, and just good ole relaxing. It was a popular place this Sunday, the parking lot was full when we arrived! After only about 30 minutes in on the trail to the Romero Pools, the views were already spectacular. There are eight trails varying in length and difficulty at Catalina State Park. The Romero Ruin Interpretive Trail (3/4-mi.) features the ruins of a 1000 year old Hohokam village site. For a short trip,...

"There Must Be Something Wrong With It!" I received an email forward from clients yesterday regarding a townhome found on Zillow.com that had caught their eye!  393 days on the market, the report stated.  What's key here is the report says....days on Zillow. In looking at tarmls.com, our Tucson Area Realtors Multiple Listing Service, the original listing was on the market 267 days.  The listing expired and is now back on the market at 85 days, for a total of 352 days.  Ok...so maybe a difference of 41 days in this particular incidence is not that much...but it isn't accurate, that's for sure. Zillow doesn't always share the most up-to-date information, or the most accurate.  Changes made on the multiple listing service may not make their way to Zillow.  I have had remodel flips on the m...

The Picture-Perfect Setting of Sun City Oro Valley I have a client visiting from out of state on her third excursion to look at homes for sale in Sun City Oro Valley. Sun City Oro Valley is a gorgeous place, and the Santa Catalina Mountain views can take your breath away. This trip down, we were fortunate to "win" a multiple offer bid and she is currently under contract for a lovely little home in Sun City. We went back to view it again at leisure Saturday morning and it was a lot of fun.  The home is being sold fully furnished, and my excited client was snapping away with her camera...even taking photos of the dishes in the cupboards and the books on the shelves.  She wanted a record to take back with her to her other home. Last night she shared a couple of OTHER photos she took as wel...

Located in the foothills of the Santa Catalina Mountains, the small town of Oro Valley, Arizona is the perfect place to buy gorgeous property and settle in. A relatively new city, Oro Valley homes have a very modern, Southwest feel to them, framing views to rival any picture you could see in a magazine.  With houses nestled at the edge of the Saguaro National Park, hiking, biking, and camping are ever-present options as things to do with your free time.  And while most people think that Arizona is a dry land reserved for desert lovers, the very same national park is home to Mt. Lemmon, the southern-most ski resort in the nation, something to spend those long, hot summer days looking forward to.  If you want to add golfing to the list of great activities you can do in Oro Valley, then pe...

Yes, My House is ACTIVE on MLS, but No...I don't Want to Show It I currently have a buyer that is very interested in a particular Oro Valley Community, and has a certain price point he'd like to meet.  That price point means we need to be watching distressed sales. I have my hotsheets and alerts set up, and this weekend a wonderful short sale came up with a newly revised status change - back to ACTIVE. This was day one of the change. It was too late Saturday night to call regarding the home, so I waited until 10 a.m. Sunday morning, trying to avoid invading too much during odd hours. Meanwhile, my clients drove through the neighborhood, coasted by the house, and called to say that yes, they'd be very interested. Being Sunday morning,  you never know if the person you're calling might be...

A local realtor, Leigh Ann Ganuelas of Kai Associates arranged for HGTV's House Hunters to follow a home buyer in Oro Valley and Tucson.  While it took a while to convince them to come all the way to Tucson, it worked out great and you can watch the show air on 7/18/11.
