What information can I find on this site?

As you think of questions on real estate that you need answered I hope you will find the information you need to help you in making home buying and selling decisions for Surprise real estate and Phoenix West Valley real estate.

Buyers (Pre-owned homes)Buyers02.jpg

When you begin thinking of buying a home you might want to search the Neighborhood tab and if you are not familiar with our state the About Arizona tab.  If you are looking at pre-owned homes be sure to look at Search MLS Listings or use the My Listings tab to focus on Phoenix West Valley, Surprise and Phoenix North. There is also some great general information about buying a home under the Buying Tab. As you begin to narrow down your choices work in the Mortgages tab to get pre-qualified and begin deciding who will give you the best service for your mortgage. You may also find some very helpful information in the Money Taxes and Finance tab as well as the Resources tab.

Buyers (New Subdivision and Custom homes)

When thinking about a home within a subdivision, be aware of all the latest incentives that are available. Each builder is different and they change weekly. Send me an email to with your specific needs and I will keep you updated as the incentives change. If you are considering a custom built or semi-custom built home, look at the Custom Homes tab for information on builders and some excellent building locations in the West Valley.
