“It’s on like Donkey Kong”

September is here and Prescott is thriving!

We have had an amazing monsoon season this summer. As we move towards season changes in the next few months, the local venues are shifting to the autumn flare. But the weather in this amazing area stays nice through the next few months and the events at the downtown courthouse square are year-round. September is no exception. We are kicking off the month with a holiday weekend and The Fair on the Square! Join us on the lawn of the courthouse square Sept 3-5 and support the local venues. The month is packed with great events including the Yavapai County Fair, Dancing for the Stars, and the 10th annual Hopefest. For a list of local events and times visit for a community connection. And as always remember that we are here for all your real estate needs whether selling your current home, buying your new home……Or both! We are the deSoto Team and we are your friendly hometown realtors!

As we wave
Summer goodbye
As we wave
Summer goodbye
September rain
clouds up the sky

That September rain
That September rain
is a sign that summer
will soon be gone
