 Every day I look out over the North Phoenix Mountain Preserve and feel very thankful to live here!  Most of you know I love to hike our hills and valleys and I must have a gazillion photos from my 20+ years of hiking them - often. This morning it was a bit chilly at 48 degrees. Ok I get it - that's a wimps version of  chilly!  I did grow up in Saint Cloud MN - ya know!! Needless to say I lingered in the house enjoying hot coffee before I 'braved' the cold. I didn't really feel like getting my boots on today but I did anyway because I knew I'd enjoy being out there once I got started. I was right! And I got my steps in for the day! What a gorgeous Phoenix morning!  I could have gone on for hours and hours but you know how that goes, we do need to pay attention to our real estate busines...

      I signed up for a Webinar sponsored by the National Association of REALTORS® and am thinking how sad it is that we need to even consider these issues.  Although I have not had any trouble or even felt uncomfortable at a showing or an open house, I know others who have.  I have also heard of robberies, rapes and murders of agents.  I am not naive enough to consider that this could not happen in my area.  It certainly could and someday will. I am going to do what I can to prevent it from happening to me and try to talk some sense into those agents who think it would never happen "here". Many male agents, of course, seem to feel that they are bigger, stronger, smarter, faster and ????? than anyone else so they would prevail in any situation. Since we serve a rural area with remote pr...

While ideal weather is one of the main advantages to selling your home in the Spring, another advantage is that the children do not have to be moved in mid-school year. When a buyer purchases a home in the Spring, they are most likely to move in during the early summer. That means plenty of time for the kids to adjust and adapt to the area before the new school year begins. They may even make a friend or two with the neighborhood kids before the first day of school.Interest rates are still low! Properties that are ready for the market and properly priced are selling fast. Do not wait!Call today to list or to start the search for your dream home 218-831-8001.I can set up a search for you on the agent side of our MLS System so you can search like an agent does.No more wondering if the pro...

Another Sunny Winter Day in Phoenix   Alas we local Phoenicians are suffering through the brutal winter weather by making difficult choices. Should we spend the afternoon on the golf course or perhaps go for a hike?  Or maybe a nice lunch on the patio?  So many excellent choices!   My husband is stuck at an airport back east somewhere.  He just texted and said they have to go back in to re-fuel and de-ice.....yet again.  Needless to say he's looking forward to getting back home sometime today, hopefully.  Before you go all nuts on me about bragging about our lovely winer weather - take a deep breath!!  I grew up in MN and it was darn cold up there.  I feel for all you living through the brutal cold weather back east. I really do.   Another Sunny Winter Day in Phoenix

Summer in Phoenix - Proof Positive - January 2014 While a lot of the country is dealing with yet more cold weather and snow, there are lots of signs out in Phoenix that summer has arrived. I know you cold weather folks might think I'm bragging but I'm not, I'm sharing what showed up in my radar - just today. I had no idea it was going to be close to 80 (high for this time of year) and further more I was surprised to be doing a few errands and everywhere I went I found signs of summer.... already. This fun beach/pool chair caught my eye. And if I didn't already have a bunch of them I would have snapped this beauty up. But alas I left it there for some lucky snow bird that is looking for the perfect chair to go with their new Phoenix winter home! Next up, of course we need some patio dish...

Metro Phoenix Real Estate Trends - Under Contract Improvements The Under Contract factor in the Metro Phoenix Real Estate market is a great tool to determine not only the potential for the upcoming business, but also allows us to monitor exactly when the most impactful times on the market's overall improvements and what was going on during those times (holidays, different times of the year, major events or catastrophes, as examples) to figure out how to re-create or prepare to capitalize on the same events.  When the Real Estate market in the United States improves, we also see improvements in the economy and unemployment rates drop as there are more jobs in the processes (more business means more building, so construction typically increases; there are more people centralizing, so ther...
