Please Note: As of 5/1/2013, I'm in the process of selling my Tucson foothills custom home that I've re-designed, renovated, and expanded. I will be be relocating to somewhere in the PHX Valley as soon as it sells! I've loved Tucson, but it's time to move on.
A native of Southern Minnesota, I escaped the long gray, cold winters, and arrived on the hottest day in Tucson back in 1984...just in-time to experience the washes and low-lying areas flowing with Monsoon storm water! :-0
Although I had a job offer in San Antonio, I "took the long way around, and fell in love with Arizona, when I learned they played baseball and tennis nearly year 'round; and I decided to stay!
I have been a Chief Executive/General Manager most of my life, with more than 25 years operating my own systems integration sales business of selling large, centralized high-speed check imaging hardward and software to banks and data centers around the nation.
Now, I am looking forward to starting a new chapter in my life, and new career in the Valley!
I have arbitrarily selected North Scottsdale/Phoenix/Paradise Valley as my new residence area--although I'm still in Tucson.
I'm still in Tucson, but my real estate broker expects interested buyers of upper-priced homes to start looking again and to expect some decent offers in 30-60 days. I know that I need to continue to be persistent and patient.
Now, as a Empty-Nester, I have been spending a few days each month, searching desirable Valley neighborhoods; figuring out the loop highways and arterial streets; finding interesting places for good music and dancing; developing new single women and men acquaintances that some may turn into friendships; and also "church shopping".
If you also love Good Music, and Dancing with an Attentive Partner, and believe that "Character really Does Count", send me a note!
