I just got back to PebbleCreek after spending the weekend in Santa Fe. And, (not by choice!), ended up flying to New Mexico but renting a car to drive back to Goodyear. The good news is that I got a feel for both the flight and the road… even if, by adding the drive, the trip […]

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. […]

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

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

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 […]

We have five public pools at PebbleCreek – two at each clubhouse and one new pool that is perfect for informal gatherings. When I first moved here, I swam quite a bit, making my way back and forth across the Tuscany Falls pool in my version of the breast stroke. But, inevitably, I hurt […]
