Welcome to July my friends and followers. July 1st (the 182nd Day of the Year) marks Second Half of the Year Day – a chance to step back, evaluate your year so far with your goals and objectives (like selling your home or buying a new one…) and to take action to get back on track if necessary.
It’s a great opportunity to do some hard thinking over your finances, your diet, your career and other aspects of your life that you might want to improve (like moving to Prescott!) Make the second half of the year count! Get out and enjoy “Everybody’s Hometown”. Enjoy our downtown and our local shops and restaurants. But remember to be safe, be smart and be healthy. I am your friendly home town realtor and I can help with all your real estate needs whether finding your dream home, selling your current home or both! And I can refer you to a top producing agent anywhere in the country if you are selling an out of state home to make your move.
Remember I am making dreams come true…………….one home at a time!
