Hello neighbors, clients and friends,
I am sure there are quite a few of you wondering what is happening in the Real Estate Market here and in the country. As you know Covid 19 has dramatically affected the way we operate and sell homes as REALTORS. One of the new tools I am learning to use is the Virtual side of the business. I am beginning to like this very much. I will be able to talk with you and share my computer screen so you can see slides and information that I will be presenting. These are uncharted times and we are all anxious not knowing what the future brings. There is quite a bit of optimistic news on the housing front which I will try to explain. I will give you an overview of the Sun City & Mesquite Markets at this time. I will be announcing the day and time soon. I am awaiting my webcam which is enroute. I think you will find this session very informative. I will also be taking up to 10 questions that I will address after the presentation in a Q & A. I will ask that questions be emailed to me prior to the Zoom presentation. Email me & I will add you to the guest list. Stay safe, kind and generous to those in need. Talk soon. Goody

The Salvation Army needs help in the form of money. They are dealing with 2 of the local hotels and helping to get families out of their vehicles. Many people were left homeless when the Virgin Hotel shut down. This fine organization is helping so much. Watch the Mayors message on 4/2 for more info on the 2 charities above.
Real Estate has been deemed an "Essential" business and we are operating with some minor adjustments. Homes are being bought and sold as we speak. Many people are realizing that living in a small town has many more benefits than living in a larger urban area. This is more apparent now than ever. We are doing Virtual Showings and still helping sellers sell their homes. Call me for more information on how I can guide you through all of this and navigate this "temporary" reality.
