Today I wanted to share some helpful hints to remember before you go on vacation: Leave your front porch/coach lights on… using a timer can be a good way to ensure they’re not left on 24-hours a day though. Use another timer to have an interior light on overnight that can be seen from outside […]

When chaperoning my daughter’s field trip to the zoo yesterday, this really hit home. Growing up, I had a very involved father, but not all of my friends were so lucky. Hell, sometimes […]

WHY USE A REALTOR WHEN BUYING A NEW HOME?

Why use a REALTOR when buying from a builder? Think you will save money by buying directly from the builder… Think again!

A SELLER HAS OBLIGATIONS… WHAT?

When selling a home in Arizona, the seller has some obligations to abide by when it comes to repairs during the sales process.
