Well, maybe not the cover....and it wasn't Rolling Stone either.  (Gotta be honest here - disclosure, you know)  But I did get an article about real estate published.     In a magazine.         With pages & everything...real ads even!

There is a saying that has been around for decades:  "All Real Estate Is Local."   When working with clients that live out of town (out-of-state, region, country), it can be challenging for them to get a feel for the area, much less the neighborhood they may be thinking of buying in.

How do you have a little fun and show off the possibilities of solar power at the same time?  With a concert, of course!  But not just any old concert...one with all of the power provided by solar panels.  This is the 3rd year for SolarRock in Himmel Park, right in the heart of the Sam Hughes His...

When one thinks of a condominium, rarely does the thought of an elegant piece of history come to mind.  The El Encanto Condos of Sam Hughes Historic Neighborhood is just that and more.  Originally built in 1940 to house officers at what now is Davis-Monthan Air Force Base, the meticulously groome...
