Fallen Feathers Avian Rescue

Every now and then it’s possible to stumble across an absolute gem right in your own community. Such was the case this morning when members of a local National Elementary Honor Society volunteered at Fallen Feathers, an avian rescue in Peoria. Driving into the neighborhood north of Liberty High School, you never would know there […]

Want A Vacation Getaway at a Steep Discount?

Just saw this one come across the RSS feed in Westbrook Village. Bank owned and priced about $12,000 or so below current market for similar properties. Want to know more about how you can spend your winters here in the sun rather than knee deep in snow and slush? Drop me a line. [idx-listing mlsnumber=”4573430″ […]

Another Westbrook Village Success Story

This afternoon, a pair of buyers from Winnipeg closed escrow on a casita in Westbrook Village’s Windsor Square. They’re now the 10th clients of mine to buy or sell in Westbrook over the past couple of years, joining a lot of fellow Canadians and some escapees from Colorado and New York. These are the days […]

Apparently the Institute thinks the state’s Board of Cosmetology knows little about the use of […]

Transcript from Glendale’s Meeting with the Goldwater Institute

Thank goodness Glendale’s attorney already referred to grandstanding so I won’t have to. Here’s the transcript from the city’s meeting with Matthew Hulsizer, the prospective buyer of the Coyotes, and the Goldwater Institute folks. (Yes, that’s the link to the Winnipeg Free Press. Not in the mood to link to Goldwater, though I can’t help […]

Scottsdale Discovers Glendale for the Wrong Reasons

From a recent letter to the editor in The Arizona Republic … If Matthew Hulsizer understands hockey and knows how to market it, according to your editorial (“Stirring end or new tomorrow?” Friday), then let him buy the team with his own funds and keep the taxpayers out of it. I applaud the stance of […]
