I'VE SEEN THE "WORLD", BUT I ALWAYS COME BACK TO THAT ONE PLACE I CALL HOME: CAVE CREEK.
I have enjoyed the great pleasure of growing up in one of my favorite cities in the world: Cave Creek. Where else can you find fabulous restaurants, great entertainment, warm and friendly people, top quality schools, beautiful hiking trails, cool architecture? I know......you might be thinking of several exciting world cities, but I truly love this one.
I was born in Arlington Heights, IL and then moved to North Scottsdale at the young age of seven. By the time I started middle school my parents moved us to the "boonies", a small town called Cave Creek. I hated it when I was 10 years old and now in my mid-forties I couldn't imagine being anywhere else. I am still in contact with the majority of my old classmates as we were not just friends, we ARE FAMILY.
My very inquisitive nature has been good to me. I've traveled all over the USA. I road tripped to more than half of the USA with my kids and dogs. We have explored the western Pacific Coast Highway, played on Alcatraz Island in San Francisco, visited Yellowstone's Old Faithful, road horses in Montana, river rafted in Colorado, bottle fed baby bears in Iowa, rode the "off the edge" roller coaster in Las Vegas, hiked the Grand Canyon, saw the majestic Mount Rushmore and went through the Badlands in South Dakota, "walked off the edge" of the Empire State Building, visited the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, been up close and personal with alligators in the everglades. I have also been fortunate enough to visit a few amazing countries as well. I have snorkeled in the Bahamas with stingrays, saw Komodo Dragons in St Thomas, drank dark coffee in Puerto Rico, visited the mountains of Antigua, laid on the beach at St Maarten, and even walked a plank off a pirate ship in St John.
Most of my days are spent working with delightful clients and my amazing team, helping out family and friends, and volunteering at a neighboring ranch. I finish my day by coming home to my 3 barrels of sunshine, my teenage daughter Christina, my old girl Harley (a lab), and my main man Rosco (a mastiff who thinks he is Chihuahua sized). My adult daughter, Stephanie, no longer lives at home, but still a very active part of our lives as well as her fiancé Matt and her dog Roo. I have a very full and blessed life and I am very thankful for that.
My amazing team and I would love the opportunity to make you and your family part of ours here at HomeSmart Desert Ridge. If you have a question, call us, because WE HAVE A SOLUTION!
