When hanging out in Prescott, Arizona I stumbled across this tree that I now know as a Ponderosa Pine. I've been told that Prescott has more of these trees than anywhere else in the USA. I love nature and love the maturity of this tree. After some research I have found out that the Ponderosa Pine has several distinct scents that no one ever really seems to agree on. Some people will smell butterscotch or vanilla and another person can smell coconut or cinnamon. Scientists don't know why a closely sniffed Ponderosa smells like baking cookies, but nevertheless it does. Some scientists believe it may be from a chemical in the sap that is warmed by the sun.  Arizona is actually home to the largest contiguous tract of Ponderosa pine forest in the world. This pine forest stretched from the Ne...

My dude and I are back in Prescott, AZ. We love it here. There is so much to do and we are excited to explore new opportunities and see so many things that Prescott, AZ has to offer. I can understand why so many love Prescott living. The town boasts of so much rich history and so many things to do. This weekend, on Saturday, we are going to go and visit the Cowgirl Country Antique Store where they are hosting an antique event with a parking lot full of vintage items. It starts at 8am and while the weather is calling for a hot day, we are prepared with plenty of water, camera and shopping bags! The sale is indoor and outdoor so you can escape from the heat and head on inside to see some cool stuff they will have in there. While I don't know much about it and haven't had the pleasure of t...

Sometimes both Buyers and Sellers rely on the ZTRs (Zillow, Trulia, Realtor.com and others) to estimate [Zestimates for Zillow] the value of homes. These estimates may be entirely unreliable. Here are some of the reasons theZTR blanket estimates do not work well in Prescott, Arizona. Many lots were sold to individual Builders There are very few "look-alike" homes here No "cookie-cutter" or "ticky-tack" homes here Forest settings vary widely from one part of town to another Prescott is hilly and some of the lots are steep Some have big views, others do not Ages of the homes vary widely, a few are as old as 100 years or more Homes in the pines are mostly 30 to 50 years old Many homes have been remodeled or updated Questions you should ask when shopping for a home in Prescott How steep is ...

Willow Lake - Prescott Area AZOn Sunday August 5th, my husband and I decided to take a drive out to Prescott where the community of Talking Rock is located. We did not have our grandson to watch because he is in Switzerland with his parents for the month. I have a client who wanted me to preview a beautiful luxury home in Talking Rock. On the way back, we went past Willow Lake and had to take a picture. This is just a small finger of the lake. But the deep blue color of the water was very impressive framed by the cream colored boulders. Youcould feel the tranquil energy that this lake holds for those who enjoy all that it has to offer. There is a boat launch (no gas powered boats), courtesy dock, picnic ramadas, restrooms and a multi-use trail around the lake and fishing.  For you birde...

Mt. Vernon Street is in the heart of Prescott, Arizona. This event attracts visitors from the Phoenix and other towns. Many of the homes are on the Historic Register. I think tonight it was just a fun place to be.    These photos were taken by my photograpjer, Richard Groeppel of Prescott.

A couple of months ago, I had a Seller m.ake a trip from Hutchinson, Kansas to Prescott, Arizona to meet with me to list his 95-acre lot near Seligman, Arizona. I thought it was strange for him to make that long trip in order to meet with me personally to do the listing paperwork. I frequently work with out-of-town or out-of-state Sellers but we usually do their listing paperwork via electronic signing. Apparently, he placed an extremely high value on having a face-to-face meeting with me.This time I met with him in my Realty ONE Office. He brought a thick file folder with him that contained detailed information on the property he wanted to sell. I was surprised that he had three letters from me, one from 10 years ago, another from about 7 years ago and a third about three years old.The...

In this video, Sandy Moss interviews the owner-operator, Tony Ebarb on his re-opening of the Pine Cone Inn, a fabulous historic treasure in Prescott, Arizona. The Pine Cone Inn was built in 1931 on the bank of Granite Creek. At the time it was far south of the famous Whiskey Row in Prescott. Formerly known as the Pine Cone Inn, the "Inn" has been removed from the name as the Pine Cone is no longer operating as a speakeasy with rooms to rent by the hour.It is a restaurant with a full bar, Jane Mansfield dining room and wishing well room with a dance floor.Tony says they offer guided tours of the speakeasy. Tony Ebarb said he had to either go into a nursing home or re-open the Pine Cone, so he re-opened the restaurant.
