  Thinking back to the days before being in the mortgage industry, I remember feeling like I didn't have a clue how to get a mortgage when I bought my home in Glendale, AZ.  This was before it was easy to jump online, go to Google, type in Home Mortgage Phoenix and start reading the endless amount of information about financing a home in Glendale, AZ.  I decided to write down a few basic tips that may make it easier for a first-time homebuyer to get through the process when purchasing a home in Glendale, AZ.     Go to www.annualcreditreport.com and view your credit report to see if there are any items listed that do not belong on your report.  You may be surprised to find that there are items that may not be yours especially if you have a common name, i.e. John/Jane Smith. You can do t...

On July 1st our team leader Susan Kraemenr put down the challenge to raise $3000 in 30 days and through the generous support of our partners withing the office we managed to raise $3447.   Where does the money go? So how do agents benefit?  Your generosity allowed us to provide resources to Sherry Stills, an agent partner in our office, as she traveled back east to be with her 2-1/2 year old granddaughter who underwent surgery when she grabbed a live wire ... here is the picture of Emma who is recuperating.  Emma got her stitches out of her leg last week. They are hoping to remove the stitches in her hand next week. Although her fingers will more than likely be deformed, Sherry is so grateful that she is alive and thanks us so much for allowing her to be with Emma during this difficult ...

In this day of economic shift, real estate is definitely much more of a "bargain" (so to speak) than it has been in quite a while, and the various suburbs of Phoenix are certainly no exception.  In fact, the Valley of the Sun is an ideal place for homebuyers to consider investing their well-earned pennies.  Glendale, for instance, is a beautiful city that serves as home to the Arizona Cardinals, the Phoenix Coyotes and Superbowl 2008.  It's in close proximity to downtown Phoenix and it offers abundant shopping, educational facilities, and hospitals, all within minutes of local neighborhoods. In addition, Glendale, AZ Realty offers some of the best deals in the Valley, and potential investors have an excellent chance of finding a true gem. With a bit of research, perhaps you can be one o...

"You're in good hands with..." "Like a good neighbor..." "Own a piece of the rock." What do these phrases remind you of? That's right, insurance. We all love insurance when we need it but hate to pay the premiums. And premiums are costing us more and more every year. Insurance rates seem to go up about 15-25% per year. But there may be some savvy steps you can take to lower the bill and still have your valuables protected. Items that push premiums higher include a pool with a slide or diving board, having a trampoline, or even a dog that has a record of biting others. These factors could be part of higher premium costs, so contact your local Glendale, AZ insurance agent and see if changes can reduce your premium payments. There are also interior items that can impact the cost of insuran...

  Prestigous Arrowhead Ranch voted Best Neighborhood in 2008 Few would have thought it possible to find a lake community with such close proximity to the mountains.  Arrowhead Ranch in Glendale creates such an experience.  This may come as a surprise for an area with  humble beginnings as a citrus farm on approximately 5,000 acres that was conceived back in the late 70's.    In 2008, Arrowhead Ranch was voted "Best Neighborhood" in the Phoenix valley by readers of azcentral.com.   Convenient family oriented amenities surround Arrowhead Ranch. Arrowhead is ideally located at the foot of  Hedgpeth hills and  1,185 acre  Thunderbird Mountain Park to the north with the 101 loop to the south.   The 101 loop offers the significant advantage of  making the entire valley more accessible, and r...

With a population of nearly 250,000, Glendale is Arizona's fourth largest city. This friendly community has a small-town feeling, the charm and character of its past as important as its growth and progress toward the future.   Glendale is perhaps best known for its reputation as Arizona's "antique capital." In fact, Historic Glendale was named by both USA Today and Sunset Magazine as one of the Top 10 places in the country to shop for antiques. The city's downtown area features original 100-year-old brick storefronts, enhanced with quaint awnings, wrought iron benches and brick sidewalks lined with nostalgic gaslight lamps. Its picturesque Catlin Court District, a four-block area set off by tea rooms housed in converted bungalows, was named to the National Register of Historic Places i...

The mercury is rising! But, morning temperatures are still delightful allowing you to enjoy a hike on one of Thunderbird Conservation Park's 17-miles of trails. Starting on February 6, trained trail crews from the American Conservation Experience (ACE) have been performing maintenance to the Park's trails.  No new trails will be constructed, but maintenance steps such as boulder removal, raking of loose rocks on inclines, tread leveling, installation of erosion controls and more are being done to improve the trails.  The crew will work through the end of May (unless the temperatures become too hot). Only short sections of the trails will be closed at a time. Source: http://www.glendaleaz.com/ParksandRecreation/parksandfacilities/thunderbirdpark.cfm Dedicated to preserving the desert env...

It's not too late to make the Gibson Jazz & Blues Festival Two stage, no waiting There are just a few hours left to enjoy this year's festival. Today from 12:00 to 7:00 will be the last day.  I went last night and it was free fun, no charge for parking, no charge for music. They even had free wine tasting. So if you have nothing to this afternoon, I'm sure you will have a great time.  And in these times, the price is right.

If you're going to be in Historic Downtown Glendale this weekend for the 26th Annual Gibson Jazz & Blues Festival, I highly recommend making a stop at our favorite coffee stop - A Shot of Java. And we're not the only ones that think the coffee - with drinks like their signature Cocamochanut Frappe - is great.  A Shot of Java was voted Best Neighborhood Coffee House, West Valley, by the Phoenix New Times. Relax with a book or play a board game.  Free Wi-Fi is available.  Or, come enjoy the music of local musicians that appear regularly.
