I stopped at my new golf course listing in Sun City West that becomes active on tomorrow.  My husband and I sat on the knee high wall in the backyard patio in awe with the spectacular sunset view on Trail Ridge Golf Course.  I walked up to the tee box then to the lake as this little lady swam over to greet me.  Maybe it's an omen that the home will sell quickly, maybe she's saying hello  Or maybe she was saying goodbye to my seller.   If you are in the market to buy or sell a home in one of the Arizona West Valley retirement golf communities, please call me or visit my website at http://LEOLINDA.com.

Find the Sun City West homes for sale the easy way! I just had a client referred to me who lives all the way over on the east side of the valley in Queen Creek, AZ.  He told me he has become more and more isolated in the family community he lives in.  I told him about all the activities and clubs in Sun City West and made arrangements to show him around this weekend.  He called me three times today and told me he is so excited he can't wait to start looking for a new home. The lifestyle a community like Sun City West has to offer is something I want my clients to experience in person as soon as possible.  Once I have had the chance to give them a tour of the area and show them all of the ammenities, they understand (in a way words can never completely convey) just what has been missing ...

Arizona Sun City retirement homes for salewith a Casita or guest house "What is a Casita?".  I often hear this when showing homes for sale in our Arizona retirement communities.  Particularly if it is their first visit to the area. In essence, it is a guest house or, as my husband calls it... his "man cave". These little dwellings are a hot commodity and homes that have one usually get top dollar in the current market.  In part because it provides a third bedroom space many of the homes don't have. The addition of a casita on the front of a home also creates a wonderful, private front courtyard space that screams for a water feature of some kind.

The sellers decided to list the property with all three of us only since Karen and Bill and I are top producing agents.  Prestige Staging met with the sellers, providing them a staging consultation.  Pictures were taken and the listing was activated.  Karen and Bill conducted the brokers open house, contract negotiations and the closing.  We worked as a team, getting the job done.  The sellers are happy, they are moving to thei...
