Staying Young in an Active Adult Community

By |July 12th, 2017|

As a Realtor® working in a 55 Plus Community, I encounter people every day who are skeptical about living in an age-restricted place.  And I get it.   I was not so much skeptical as begnignly indifferent when I moved here.  I wanted access to the pools, the gyms, the clubhouses.  I wanted to […]

Helping Family Members Sell Their PebbleCreek Home

By |March 21st, 2017|

It is so easy to meet people at PebbleCreek.   Here in Arizona, that is not always the case – particularly if you do not have small children with whom to visit the parks and schools.
