It snowed in Chicago today. I mean, it is not even Halloween, and it snowed. By way of contrast, it is mostly sunny here in PebbleCreek with a forecasted high of 72.

The weather is one of the primary reasons that 200 people arrive in the greater Phoenix area on a daily […]

PebbleCreek Feels Like Home

By |September 20th, 2019|

Over the summer I visited Maine, New Hampshire, Cape Cod and even Chicago. As a transplant to Arizona from the midwest/east coast, I wondered how I would feel as I visited my previous geography… would I find myself drawn back to the green landscapes? The humid air? The ocean? […]

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.

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 […]
