Thanksgiving in PebbleCreek

By |November 20th, 2017|

Thanksgiving feels like it is coming REALLY early this year…  there will be almost a full week left of November after the holiday weekend.  And, as a midwestern/East Coast girl, our stunning 80 degree (plus!) weather with blue skies and palm trees is not quite the setting that I associate with the holiday.

And yet.

PebbleCreek is […]

Starting a New Chapter at PebbleCreek

By |November 10th, 2017|

I have yet to meet someone who has made it to 55 without a few battle scars.

By and large, an active adult 55 Plus Community is full of people who are energetic and brimming with life – but behind that energy, hidden just below the surface, is the story that fuels everything:   The difficult diagnosis.  The marriage breakdown.  […]

Visiting Phoenix/Scottsdale Museums from PebbleCreek

By |August 8th, 2017|

So, today is the second Tuesday of the month – the “free” day at the Desert Botanical Garden (that’s the set up right now, I suppose it could change….).  I decided to go.  It wasn’t a first visit – I had been there to see the Chihuly Exhibit and to walk through the gardens […]

Dabbling in Art at PebbleCreek

By |August 2nd, 2017|

There are only about a million things that I could be doing today.

I could be doing the accounting for my business.  I could be cooking something for dinner.  Heck – the laundry not’s done and the patio could use a good cleaning.

To heck with all of it.  Instead, I dug out my pastels, headed […]

Strategies for a Successful Move in to An Active Adult Community

By |August 1st, 2017|

Be Patient With Yourself!

There is likely no better place than an Active Adult Community like PebbleCreek to begin to build your next chapter.  But Rome wasn’t built in a day!  Most folks move here from somewhere else in the country – so, by the time the Pod or the moving van is unpacked, new residents are just […]

Is a 55 Plus Active Adult Community Right for You?

By |July 25th, 2017|

I just spent an hour or so researching 55 Plus Communities on the internet – and I have a headache.

CLEARLY, while many things can be profitably learned from an internet search, deciding on the IFs and WHICH ONEs of moving to an age restricted community requires some honest self-evaluation, on-site visiting and maybe even […]

Can anyone Live in Phoenix in the Summer?

By |July 18th, 2017|

The active adult lifestyle is, if the brochures are to be believed, an outdoor experience.  Swim, play golf, go hiking, bike ride, walk, dine and enjoy happy hours basking in the perfection of desert living.
To that I would say Yes.   There are months when the weather is perfect and one would be a […]

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 […]

Living in a 55 Plus Community

By |June 20th, 2017|

This is a great article about living in a 55 Plus Community.

The author, Martha Nelson, would never in her wildest dreams  have thought that a 55 Plus Community could work for her…  and to her suprise, she finds herself thriving.

Lots of folks feel that way.

Here at PebbleCreek we come from all walks of life… […]

Is Planning for Visitors Important to You?

By |May 15th, 2017|

 

PebbleCreekers get PLENTY of visitors.

The question is not IF you will have visitors if you move here, but how you want to house them when they come!   It makes sense – and will improve your hosting experience – to have realistic plans for how you will welcome guests.  One way to start thinking […]
