Real Estate Agent - We Know Urban Realty
Where we discuss pros and cons of urban living in Phoenix, Arizona. We don't pull any punches as we want you to know what's really happening in the loft and high rise condo market.

We got several responses to last weeks blog; some in agreement and some in disagreement.  One of the people who disagreed with the assessment said that the only reason that "actively for sale" properties are down is because a person would have to be "crazy" to try to sell their homes or condos in...
