Staging your Home
Ever wonder how you will ever get your home ready to sell and show all those buyers?
That's one of the many things we do...WE STAGE YOUR HOME and make it show ready before we list the home or take pictures. We will even make suggestions on painting a wall or two if thats in the budget.
Out with old and in with the new. May this year bring new happiness, new goals, new achievements and a lot of new inspiration. We hope you create for you and your loved ones the best year ever!

What's in Season
Produce is usually of better quality and taste when in season.
 Winter is citrus season in the Valley of the Sun. Oranges, grapefruit, clementines, tangelos, blood oranges, pummelos and Meyer lemons.  Kale and Carrots are also in season.
Kale is a green leafy vegetable that is part of the cabbage family. It is popular in soups and stews because it holds together during cooking. Kale is high in calcium, beta-carotene, iron and Vitamin C.

Why buying a Home is a smart move 
There are compelling reasons to 
purchase a home now...
1.  Interest Rates are LOW. With a 30 year mortgage at an average of 4.00%.  
2.  Your house payment will stay the same, unlike renting where the rents typically increase.
3.  Ownership builds EQUITY. The most obvious benefit of owning a home.
4.  The TAX BENIFITS are outstanding. The interest you pay on your mortgage is tax deductible as are your property taxes when you itemize your deductions.
5.  Mortgages are easier to get.
6.  Prices are on the RISE. 
Give us a call, we live and work in Trilogy.

Live the life that you deserve....
"Baby its Cold Outside"
Have you experienced the 35-39 degree mornings we have been having in Trilogy?
Hopefully you have disconnected your outside water hoses and made a few adjustments to accommodate this cold weather. Typically January is Arizona's coldest month. So be ready to cover your frost sensitive plants should the temperatures plummet.
New Year's Resolution
Almost everyone makes New Year's resolutions. We make big promises to make big changes. But lets be realistic, resolutions are important because they head us in a direction that will improve our lives. Here are a few resolutions that should improve our soul, body and mind.
1.  Rest more, at least 8 hours of sleep at night.
2.  Exercise more. Get in a routine, be it walking, classes at the club, pickle ball, tennis, the list is endless.
3.  Stress Less. Try meditation or yoga.
4.  Organize your life. Remove the clutter.
5.  Challenge yourself by learning new things. Try a new hobby.
6.  Attitude Adjustment. Happiness is a choice so focus on the positive.
7.  Time Management. Get out your new calendar and prioritize your time.
8.  Be Active. Get involved, it will help with optimism and raises your self esteem.
9.  New Opportunities. Meet new people and get involved with a group.
10.  Improve your Nutrition. Eat healthy foods with fewer calories. Eat your fruits and vegetables. Eating healthy creates new cell growth, cleanses toxins and prevents disease. 
Just thought you would want to know that the color for the year 2018 is Pantone Ultra Violet 18-3838.  The color is a marriage between the passionate red violets and the strong indigo purples.
Sherwin-Williams has also picked a color for 2018 and that color is Oceanside 172-C7 
And the Color of the year for Benjamin Moore is RED HOT (Caliente AF-290)
Looks like we have some pretty BOLD colors to look forward to this year.
Out with the neutral and in with the bold!
Arizona is Growing!
What makes Arizona so popular?
Americans love the sunshine and the warmth, along with sensible taxation, affordable living and job growth.  For the first time in our history,
Arizona topped 7 million in population, so says the US Census Bureau, making ours the fifth fastest growing state.
