Why Choose PebbleCreek?

By |May 23rd, 2019|

There are many 55 plus active adult communities in the Phoenix area. As a Realtor who specializes in this community, I am asked all of the time, “Why PebbleCreek?”

It is an important question. In fact, for almost everyone, the community selection comes before the home choice. While there is a wide range […]

Does PebbleCreek have Access to Good Medical Care?

By |April 12th, 2019|

Many of my clients want to know about medical care options in the Phoenix West Valley.

I am fortunate in that I have not yet been a huge consumer of medical care. I have a doctor. She wants me to come in twice a year. I do. I fuss about the ten […]

Buying New vs Buying an Older Home in PebbleCreek

By |March 7th, 2019|

Unlike many 55 Plus Communities in Arizona, PebbleCreek is not completely built out. The builder is still here; new models are being innovated and contracting new construction is, for a couple of years anyway, an option.

Most folks know pretty quickly whether they want to build or if they would prefer to buy […]

The Phoenix West Valley: PebbleCreek’s Backyard

By |February 8th, 2019|

Most folks don’t want to sit in their homes all day. Ultimately, the LOCATION of the home – both the primary neighborhood (PebbleCreek for example) and the broader community (such as the west valley of Phoenix), are critically important considerations when buying a house.

The west valley of Phoenix used to be […]

Visiting Rocky Point, Mexico

By |January 8th, 2019|

Many PebbleCreekers head down to Rocky Point, Mexico (Puerto Penasco) for the occasional beach get-away.   Located on the Sea of Cortez, the beach resort village is just a four hour drive from PebbleCreek.

I went with a small group (including a teenager!) for New Year’s Eve and then spent a couple of extra days mostly watching sunrises […]

Do You Want a Pool?

By |November 26th, 2018|

In my job, I get pool envy ALL OF THE TIME.  There is something so incredibly soothing about walking in to a home and having one’s eye drawn outside to a beautiful blue expanse of water …  and if there is a water feature too, there is the additional pleasure of just hearing the […]

STRESS and the Costs of Moving

By |October 1st, 2018|

There are costs of moving beyond the actual expense of the house.

Some of those costs are related to lost time and energy – all of the effort that goes in to organizing a move, saying goodbye, integrating completely in to a new community, giving things away, etc…  The list is long and can be exhausting […]

How much do you LOVE Landscaping?

By |August 21st, 2018|

I have a fairly BIG yard.  It is full of plants that would never survive in my native midwest and east coast enviornments; it is dependent on a full yard irrigation system; and it requires professional oversight.  Every month or so, I scub down the front and back patios in an attempt to keep […]

Chillaxing in Phoenix in the Summer

By |July 30th, 2018|

News Flash.  Summers get hot here in Phoenix!

Even the full time residents of PebbleCreek… and there are quite a few of us!…  tend to book at least a weekend getaway to give ourselves a break from the heat.  This year, I wanted to go to a resort with a lazy river so that I […]
