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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

I Am Not 55. Can I move to PebbleCreek?

By |March 21st, 2018|

Yes!  The Active Adult Lifestyle in PebbleCreek does not require that you be 55.

Remembering that I am not a lawyer and if this is a serious matter for you you might want to ask a lawyer to review the documents, according to our HOA Covenants, 20% of the homes here in PebbleCreek may be […]

The PebbleCreek Lock and Leave Villas

By |February 17th, 2018|

The Villas are relatively new to the active adult lifestyle in PebbleCreek.   Marketed as “Lock and Leave” properties, the first ones were built since I moved here four years ago.  Villas have become very popular with several different groups – folks who want to own property here but still have a primary residence elsewhere, single people, couples […]

What is there to do at PebbleCreek?

By |January 24th, 2018|

PebbleCreek reminds me over and over again of a college campus environment.  It would be impossible to take part in every activity at a college – and you wouldn’t want to.  The active adult lifestyle that PebbleCreek offers is similar – I will probably never get to the Ballroom Dance Club and I can’t see […]
