SOLD – My Buyer, My Seller!

Persistence and belief in a property eventually pays off!   This 3.3 acre site near Broadway and Freeman roads had an old utility/access going through it but I had a couple of meetings with the homeowner benefitting from that easement, the homeowner legally relinquished his rights to the easement and WAHLA! this stunning mountain view lot sold [...]

SOLD – My Buyer, My Seller!

With easy topography and such close proximity to the city and Wildcat games :) it didn’t take long for this lower foothills Flecha Caida Ranch property to sell at an ABOVE-AVERAGE price.  Having both the buyer and seller, it makes for a much smoother transaction because I know the buyer is fully informed of a property's [...]

JUST LISTED – Pima Canyon against National Forest!

The lowest priced site available that is against the Coronado National Forest in this PRESTIGIOUS, most popular foothills community.   This lot has so much personality that, if it could talk, would honestly say: "MY twisted, tangled and TALL, OLD saguaros will outlive you; the view up the THROAT OF PIMA CANYON is one you have to [...]

SOLD – My Buyer, My Seller

I'm not sure why it took so long for this nifty site to sell, but the buyer made a GREAT choice.  For $103,500 - end of cul-de-sac setting, in Chaparral Heights (La Cholla/Lambert), fab views of the east Santa Catalina's and an arroyo through the property for the feeling of ultimate privacy on a 1-acre property.  [...]

Top o’ the Morning to You!

My family is deep in Irish history, thus the traditional "Top o' the Morning to You" texts this morning, to which we always return the blessing with "And the rest of the day to yourself".  Corned beef and cabbage is a given; I even surprised my family one year with bagpipers playing down the street [...]

A Cacti-Napper is Caught!

A 48-year-old man was recently arrested in connection with the theft of barrel cacti in the Dove Mountain area....FINALLY.  Finally, one of these criminals is caught and captured!  Not coincidentally, the man was a part-time landscaper.  I wish I could count the times I have seen cacti stolen off property.  Sometimes the missing cacti is in [...]

SOLD – 3.31 acs nr end of Speedway!

This is a perfect example of why no one should be fooled by a property's street address until you walk and 'feel' the property.  This 3.31 acre site is on Speedway but, not really.  The building site was about a football field away from Speedway, making for a very private, serene setting among TONS of vegetation.  Local buyer.  $200,000.

The sleekest, coolest Jaguar of them all . . .

A real LIVE one roaming our south Santa Rita Mountains.  It's the only jaguar of its kind in the country and a 40-second video clip brings it the closest to life that I want to see it. “El Jefe” (The Boss), was named by Valencia Middle Schools students, whose mascot is a jaguar.  For your [...]

My Buyers my Sellers…Oro Valley

Just put into escrow with a local, young couple a 3+ acre site in the heart of Oro Valley that is almost like an island, isolated all by itself with undisturbed wash surrounding (no floodplain) and a spectacular full-range view of  Pusch Ridge and the Santa Catalina Mtns.

My Buyer with a one-week close!

A shout-out to Long Title and Title Security who we were able to open and close escrow in 7 days, a pretty rare feat for land sales.  This is my third sale with this client, who now can't wait to move from feisty, crazy Silicon Valley to almost 20 acres of seclusion.  Believe me, he deserves it [...]
