Merry Christmas to all and to all a happy New Year!

December rings in the Christmas Season and all is merry and bright in downtown Prescott! Please join us on December 6th for the 39th annual Christmas parade in the Courthouse Square followed by Arizona’s Christmas City’s 67th Annual Courthouse Lighting. And that is just the beginning! From Acker Night to the annual boot out the new year with the Boot Drop on New Years’ Eve, the historic Prescott Courthouse Plaza will be ringing with the festivities. For all the community events please visit for a community connection. When you are enjoying the parade watch for the Better Homes and Gardens BloomTree Realty float as we usher in the community festivities! If you miss us there be sure to stop by on Acker night, we are right downtown waiting to wish you and your family the best Christmas holiday yet. And remember we are your friendly hometown realtors. We are The deSoto Team and we are here to help you with all your real estate needs whether finding your dream home, selling your current home………. Or both!!!

We are making dreams come true…. One home at a time!

Child of the grand old winter,
December floateth by;
And the ground without is bare and white
As the moon in the cloudless sky.

The wind blows cold and dreary,
Across the whitened plain;
And we see the oaks with their branches bare,
Through the frost on the window pane.

But within where the yule-log’s burning,
Each heart is happy and gay;
For the loving Prince of earth and Heaven,
Was born on Christmas day.

Then hail! grand old December,
We welcome you once more!
For the memory sweet of a night you bring,
That came in the days of yore.
