‘TIS THE SEASON!!! (For chimney fires)

Hello my fellow Arizonans, well we have made it to November!  And with that comes the long awaited “cooler” temperatures. As I was out trick-or-treating the other night with the kids I saw many families out in braving the freezing cold 60 degree weather and a few of them even had some sort of fire pit/ chiminea burning (I am assuming to avoid frostbite from the sub 70 degree temperatures).

Overgrown…

Gas, Water, Electric, Oh My!

I recently was asked by an agent who had some pretty bad luck during previous transactions to visit a property prior to the inspection to ensure the utilities were on and the home would be ready for the inspection. As is typical these days she had been “bitten” by multiple listing agents assuring her that the utilities were on at the property and ready to go only to find out […]
