It is an absolutely beautiful morning with highs promised to be in the mid-70's. I need to get out of the house, get my Vitamin D rays, and go for a ride. Since we had never been to the Renaissance Festival and Artisan Marketplace, and it's only about 12 miles east of where we live, we head out to see what we have been missing. Today is the first day of eight weekends from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. including President's Day. The last day of the Festival is on the 30th of March.                                           As we head east, we notice carloads of people going in the same direction. Keep in mind, the Festival is located out in the desert on about 30 acres of - well - um - desert. Much to our surprise, as we pulled off of the main road and headed through the entrance, there were ...

With Gold trading at an all time high or $935 per ounce, I feel it's only appropriate to tell you where to find some.  Mere miles from where I blog, are the Superstition Mountains. Sojourners travel from around the world in search of the "Lost Dutchman's Mine." Heres's a synopsis from wikipedia: "In this story (actually two interconnected stories), members of the Apache tribe are said to have a very rich gold mine located in the Superstition mountains. Famed Apache Geronimo is sometimes invoked in this story. In most variants of the story, the family of a man called Miguel Peralta discovered the mine and began mining the gold there, only to be attacked or massacred by Apaches in about 1850 in the supposed Peralta massacre. Years later, a man called Dr. Thorne treats an ailing or wounde...

Since I took so many pictures of this picturesque community, I sorted through and came up with a few more to share. I had several golf course views that I hadn't shared, and since this particular area is a golfer's paradise, I decided to focus a bit more on golf. Did you know? Besides beautiful accomodations, a restaurant and a spa, Gold Canyon Golf Resort boasts two 18-hole championship golf courses: Dinosaur Mountain and The Sidewinder. Some of the photos in the Real Estate Show Tour will give you glimpses of these courses which meander through the foothills along the eastern and northern edges of Dinosaur Mountain. Many of our winter visitors stay at the Resort and enjoy the amenities it has to offer. On the way out of Gold Canyon just north of the 60, and nestled in between Supersti...

Continuing our journey and my story about Gold Canyon, just nine miles east of Mesa, Arizona, in the beautiful Superstition Mountain foothills lies Gold Canyon Golf Resort boasting two 18-hole championship golf courses: Dinosaur Mountain and The Sidewinder. It also has many pampering services including massages. ;-) With views the envy of our state, this is a popular landing spot for many from the colder climates in our United States of America.   Lots of golfing, hiking and relaxation is always on the menu in this fabulous area. Close by is the Arizona Renaissance Festival, a medieval amusement park and Renaissance Fair in Arizona just east of Gold Canyon East. Popular with residents from the Phoenix Valley, the Festival usually runs from late winter to mid-spring every year. In additi...

As promised, though pictures don't come close to showing the beauty of this area, I have put together a virtual tour of the Superstition Foothills community located in the beautiful area of Gold Canyon, Pinal County, Arizona. Many of the homes in this specific community are custom built, and several builders joined in and built the community into the mountains, and the vegetation - with untouched and natural views. Specific rules of the community include no overhead lighting (all of the lighting is set down in the plants alongside the road). This was put into place in order to allow the homeowners to enjoy the stars and the quiet beauty of the area. You will also not see any overhead electrical wiring since it is all underground in Supersititon Foothills. Required: all front yard landsc...

Taking a drive east of the Valley of the Sun along Highway 60, I continue beyond Mesa, beyond the city of Apache Junction, and turn left/north onto the road entitled "Superstition Mountain Drive". I am now looking directly at Superstition Mountain and entering the community of  Superstition Foothills. I continue my drive enjoying the beautiful mountain, foothills, the blue skies, beautiful homes nestled in the foothills, the neat and scenic views and come to Don Donnelly Road.  I turn right and on my immediate left is the clubhouse for this community complete with a pool, picnic tables, club house, and lots of green grass.             I think a virtual tour is in order, so the next post will include more of the photos taken. This is such a beautiful area that even photos are not enough....

After attending all types of seminars, taking classes galore and so on and so on, I came across this article from Agent Inner Circle and thought it was worth a try and wanted to pass along the info.  I guess half the battle when you send emails is to actually get the prospects to open it and for it to not get filtered out ETC ETC.  The Agent Inner Circle suggested to instead of putting your personal information/name in the subject line, to try entering in your brokerage instead, like Keller Williams verses from Jody Sayler team.  They state to make the subject something familiar that may catch their eye and not just see it as spam and quickly delete.  They suggested testing the system by sending some emails one way and some the other and then try to moniter the open (request reciept, et...

What a great way to help filter for your cell phone, thought I'd pass along the info and it is also great to pass on to your database. Helpful hint  to pass along .  Register your cell phone on the do not call list.In 9 days cell phone numbers are being released to tele-marking companies, and the calls will eat up your cell time at your cost.To register and prevent this, call from your cell phone to:  1-888 382-1222You must call from the cell phone number you want to have blocked.  You cannot call from a different phone number.This is the National Do Not Call List Number set up to remove your numbers.  And it does so for 5 years.   www.realestatewithjody.com
