Final Walkthroughs…to do, or not to do; that is NOT the question.

16 06 2009

Just posted another magical blog about an interesting story I heard regarding a shady deal a fellow Realtor dealt with.  As you click the link below, remember these two things…

1.  ALWAYS DO A FINAL WALKTHROUGH, regardless of the situation (i.e. foreclosure, short sale, regular resale, etc.) when buying Phoenix/Scottsdale/Glendale real estate, or real estate anywhere for that matter.

2.  ALWAYS CONTACT COLIN STEVENS (me) when thinking of buying or selling Phoenix/Scottsdale/Glendale real estate or future real estate in the Phoenix/Scottsdale/Glendale Arizona area.  my contact info is at the bottom of the post=]

Talk to you soon!

Phoenix, Arizona Summers!

24 05 2009

Although it’s not technically summer yet, it’s definitely starting to feel like it during some days.  So, I made an extra special video as my ode to summer!

I can’t put into words how much love when my flesh almost melts off when I enter my car in the parking lot, or when my hand almost disintegrates when I attempt to grab the steering wheel!

On a serious note, besides the hot car parts I do not mind the heat.  It is bearable thanks to; 1. AIR CONDITIONING 2. SWIMMING POOLS 3. SHADE and BREEZE.

With that being said, here are the average temperatures in Phoenix, AZ, thanks to weather.com.

Phoenix Real Estate…Listing my First Home!

24 03 2009

I have focused strictly on representing buyers since I’ve become a REALTOR, and the opportunity to list my first property has presented itself recently.  I have acted upon it.

I wanted to use this video as a way to debut my face/voice to the world.  Let me know what you think of the video, and preferably any input for my listing appointment=]

leave feedback in a comment below.

Many Thanks!  I look forward to reading everyone’s input.
