Top 5 Questions I Hear About Life In the Active Adult Community of PebbleCreek

By |July 2nd, 2018|

I do a lot of Open Houses in the 55 Plus Active Adult Community of PebbleCreek, so I spend a lot of time talking with folks who are thinking about moving here.  Once they hear that I am a full time resident, I am often asked about activities and life satisfaction, costs of living and […]

PebbleCreek Resales – What are the Current Statistics?

By |June 14th, 2018|

After 3 months of record numbers of resales in PebbleCreek, both April and May showed a slight decline.  Even with that, 2018 re-sales (130 through May) exceed the same period in 2017 (109 resales) and 2016 (110 resales).  Of course, some of that growth is likely due to the fact that Robson continues to […]

Robson Reserve at PebbleCreek – What is it?

By |June 5th, 2018|

You can’t miss the construction.

Just outside the PebbleCreek Tuscany Falls gate, a large multi-unit residence is being built.  The project, years in the planning, is an independent and assisted living residence for seniors that is expected to open in spring of 2019.  The property is being built by Robson (the same builder as PebbleCreek) and […]

Theatre, Broadway and the 55 Plus Lifestyle at PebbleCreek

By |May 23rd, 2018|

I am not going to say I went to Broadway all the time.  But between living on the east coast as an adult and growing up in Chicago, theatre was always a possiblity for me.  I remember my jaw just involuntarily dropping during the opening of Lion King.   “For Good” from Wicked still brings me […]

PebbleCreek Resales – 1st Quarter, 2018

By |May 13th, 2018|

The first quarter of 2018 was record setting in PebbleCreek resales.   In the first quarter of 2017 there were 59 closed resales.  In the same time period of 2016 there were 49.   Combining January, February and March of this year, there were 83.  ( I have to add the disclaimer here that agents may “count” […]

Travel and the 55 Plus Active Adult Lifestyle

By |May 13th, 2018|

I just got home from spending a few days (literally a few days!) in Ireland.   My heritage is Irish and I still do have family in County Clare – but, trust me,  I don’t take the opportunity to travel for granted.  In fact, with my family flung far and wide,  easy proximity to Phoenix’s Sky Harbor […]

Working Out at PebbleCreek

By |April 23rd, 2018|

For the last couple of weeks I have been staying active by trying some of the gym classes at the active adult community of PebbleCreek.

Pretty much everyday lately (Monday – Saturday), I have been in one class or another (and sometimes two!!), trying out the various offerings.  I would not be able to pick out […]

Making a Distance Move to PebbleCreek

By |April 16th, 2018|

I get it.

Moving to Arizona after living a full adult life in other parts of the country (or elsewhere!) is going to be stressful.  I don’t want to try and talk you out of that.   Figuring out how real estate transactions work in Arizona is only part of it – there is also the […]

Do you Want a Fixer Upper?

By |April 4th, 2018|

I end up talking about Chip and Joanna Gaines from the HGTV program Fixer Upper ALL OF THE TIME.  Often, when folks come to open houses here at PebbleCreek, in their minds eye they are removing walls, changing flooring and installing some shiplap – just like Chip and Joanna do on TV.   HGTV – and […]

Living in a Home Owners Association

By |March 26th, 2018|

Oh Boy.

Living in a 55 Plus Community means coming to terms with living in an HOA.  Heck, for the most part, living in Arizona is going to mean coming to terms with living in an HOA.  In other parts of the country HOAs are not as prevalent, but since residential Arizona is being built largely by […]
